    Default 2018 Garden Thread

    What are you planting for yourself?

    I'm doing
    Beefsteak, red cherry, Roma, Marion, Rutgers, and Cherokee Purple tomatoes
    Anaheim Chili, fish, jalapeno, Carolina Reaper, Carmen, and Keystone Bell peppers
    Zucchini and squash
    Cucumbers
    Okrie
    Cilantro, mint, basil, oregano, rosemary, and probably a few more herbs.

    Started the tomatoes and peppers a few weeks ago. Tomatoes get leggy quick when you have to bring them inside.

    I'm still in the process of building my high fence. I picked up a gate, an old door actually at one of those "picker" want to be antique shops last week.

    Few varieties of watermelon, cantaloupe, a few varieties of squash, zucchini, sugar cane if I can get my hands on some seed, bell pepper, peaches-n-cream corn, silver queen corn, a couple ornamental sunflower varieties for the wife to cut, and a few stalks of tobacco for giggles.

    I'm giving up this year. I have an anti-green thumb and can't grow a plant besides cucumbers to save my life.

    In my experience, the Brussels Sprouts were not a good fit for my raised bed garden. They took a mighty long time to produce and grew huge. They tasted delicious but the garden real estate that one plant occupies, the time it takes to mature, and the low overall yield for the space, I won't be planting them again. That being said, my wife did find some recipes that utilize the leaves as greens while the sprouts are growing.

    Thanks for that, Kinda my thoughts as well. We eat the hell out of them in my house, but i may just be better off buying that vegetable.

    I didn't have good luck when only doing a few pepper plants. They seem to be a little funny about pollinating.

    The house garden is ready, just a ten by twenty for tomatoes. I'm not sure if I'll grow anything else in there this year. Herbs are at the house, and the swamp garden is planted. I've been a tad too busy to run by and take a pic so far.

    The garden has been on the back burner while I'm still trying to finish other things after the build.
