Haha i could do that, i may be just trying to get a nice stand built up front with a little tip jar or something , it will all depend on the output and if the season is good, I'll keep you update, post pics once things get going a bit
Hehe, another update , anyone else have updates
yesturday, planted ruby red leaf lettuce, and black seeded simpson lettuce. Also fordhook giant swiss chard and red swiss chard.
what has sprouted from last time, pumpkins, radish, winter squash, one zucchini, couple cucumbers
injuries- well i've gotten some blisters, working out there daily haha, though plants have also faced some. 2 of my broccolli plants were killed down to one leaf, and one of my green bell peppers was killed down to 2 leaves at the ground. fenced up a little more
pests- noticed tons of ants around the garden so i put out some cornmeal, my grandma said it worked when she put it around the house so hopefully it worked around the garden, i might also put out a thing of beer for slugs, maybe it was slugs and not animals that got my plants?? I just found one that i guess decided to try to eat my plants, but it didn't know that today was going to be hot and sunny so it dried up a few inches away from the plant.
I've got a thornless blackberry on my balcony, as well as seven kinds of mint and a little scrubby rosemary. I'm trying to figure out a way I can do more veggies out there, but my CPs already have most of the space filled... My patio is like half the size of your plot, and we're three stories up.
o//~ Livin' like a bug ain't easy / My old clothes don't seem to fit me /
I got little tiny bug feet / I don't really know what bugs eat /
Don't want no one steppin' on me / Now I'm sympathizin' with fleas /
Livin' like a bug ain't easy / Livin' like a bug ain't easy... o//~
The vegetable gardening season is over here for the spring/summer. We can plant more things about September. The only thing that can survive our summer of ungodly heat, humidity, and rain is okra, cherry tomatoes, and sweet potatoes. I'm thinking of trying bush watermelon and cucumbers this fall. I hate the long vines of the regular varieties as they seem to take over everything. For those of you with normal growing seasons - good luck with the produce.
tons of stuff are just starting to put out their first true leaves being...summer squash, zucchini, acorn and butternut squash. sugar sweet pumpkins, radish, beans.
gerimantion on newly planted stuff: some lettuce and swiss chard is up, so is the spinach
last planted stuff its late everything is supposed to be in by memorial day here. but the stuff i planted i think should be ok. seeds of. more of all the squash, field pumpkin, and golden gem pumpkin, cucumbers, eggplant, cantaloupe, watermelon hopefully they come up. tomato large red cherry too
hope to possibly get some red bell pepper plants tomorrow, maybe some other things
lost 2 broccolli plants, put out 3 things of beer lol for slugs
not sure what else, pictures should come within the next couple weeks when things start to get a little bigger
Just built the new veggie garden today!
spent pretty much the entire day on it..
last year it was four separate beds:
(photo from one year ago..four new beds under construction)
This year the four beds, plus the former grass paths inbetween, have all been merged into one giant bed:
(photo from earlier today!) (there is one thing CP-related in this photo..who can spot it?
The garden is approx 25x25 feet..
around here, you dont plant veggies until Memorial Day weekend..which is right now!
(risk of frost through May..now its safe)
We will be growing:
cukes (I made the big pyramid cucumber trellis a few years ago)
One pumpkin vine
thats probably it..
serious planting commences tomorrow and Monday.
My CP page: http://1stclass.mylargescale.com/scottychaos/CP

Also set up the greenhouse, well plastic one, inside the larger one which still has to be built. so i might be moving cps out there soon to get them growing better, no i have protection from the animals
