Thought maybe this year might be planting early, nope. Weather man said the F word for this week. Always planted after Memorial day anyways so no biggie.
As asparagus plants grow they seem to expand a bit from original boundaries. When they crowd your rhubarb plants you find some white asparagus..For some reason I thought white asparagus was grown in a gas enclosure like enoki mushrooms. But according to Google it is grown in the dark to prevent photosynthesis.
Why not ask those 8 families if they'd like to come help you plant, and tend your garden, as thanks for being able to share in the bounty? Many hands make light work.Think this will be last year for big garden I give to about 8 families but getting to hard.Got tomatoes planted. 42mountain fresh 16 early girls 4juliets.that just about killed my legs.Still got 45 different peppers 16 zuccines 4 cucumbers and row of beans.I love giving it away people really appreciate it and do a lot for me.But just getting to hard.
Looks good lot of work having a garden but better than sitting in house plus you can’t beat the good eating
Labor of love. I like the rewards but I'm like you in that I give most of it away to friends and neighbors.Looks good lot of work having a garden but better than sitting in house plus you can’t beat the good eating
I actually live in the suburbs but moved my garden up north to the hunting property because the neighbor down here likes to feed the chipmunks and squirrels and they just destroy the garden .I live in country like you but lots of houses with 2 to five acres.I’ve notice how few people have gardens.Hardly any.Is it same by you
Thanks. No mulch, just the various weeds/plants that got tilled into the soil. I like the mounds because they're easier to weed and I keep my walkways clear with a torch. If it seems like some plants aren't getting enough water, I can dig a little reservoir in front of the mound to collect a bit more water since I'm not there full time.I like the hills. Do you mulch? Garden looks great.
