Here are some updated pics of my garden. It is coming right along. I would also LOVE for others to post pics of their garden as well. :hmwink:

Okay, what is going on with my hens 'n chicks?? They're such hardy succulents that last through every weather condition and you don't even have to do anything to 'em! Flood in the summer, bake in the summer, freeze in the winter, they just stay through anything.
So what in the heck is goin' on here?? I had 2 big planters that nothing was doing well in, even these which were the latest tries, so I finally gave up on those planters and split apart these hens 'n chicks and repotted them into different pots.
Now, not all of them are "rotting", only some of them. And I've used the same succulent potting soil for all of them. So I don't understand what is happening to these victimized ones? You can see what they look like, and they really stink too. I've gotten rid of all the ones that looks like this, but there are still a few that are starting in. So what's the deal??
Nice!!! You are so far ahead of me. Just strawberries and some herbs yet. Keep us posted. :csrgrin:
Thanks, MOTU...now I know in case it ever happens again! lol
It's funny though, you wouldn't think overwatering would be an issue with 'em cause they sit out in nature all year 'round and thrive and thrive! (usually, lol)
Motu-Maniac, nice start :)
Being in upstate NY I got some time before things are ready to be picked. However, my broccoli is super close. I'm trying to keep a close eye on the pumpkins too so that I dont get those bloody beatles on them and it kills them :(
After two years of trying to get my garden going, I find out I am going to have to move the whole darn thing. From Kansas to Louisiana. Just put in my blackberry bushes and now I don't know if I will ever get to enjoy them.
Louisiana itself seemed quite nice from the short visit I had there prior to making the decision to move.
Just picked some more veggies from the garden. Meal planned for tonight (Stuffed Bell Peppers) and tomorrow (Vegetable Stir-Fry).
Tomatoes, Yellow Squash, Zucchini, Green Beans, Cucumber, Red Potatoes, and Bell Peppers
Those are some good-looking vegetables, MOTU_Maniac. Most of mine are just getting planted. I have planted tomatoes, peas, sweet potatoes, beans, cucumbers, peppers, carrots and corn. Got some fruit on a couple tomato plants but nothing else yet. Got some onions and garlic left over from last year because I just left them there last fall and they kept on growing, but they aren't "new" crops.
I've harvested Gai lan, pak choi, breakfast radishes, mustard, sorrel, and spinach. I've had to start a second crop of those since they have bolted on me. I've also enjoyed a harvest of rainbow Swiss chard, Tuscan kale, several lbs of strawberries, all my herbs, and my hot wax peppers & Serrano peppers. My tomato vines are heavy with green tomatoes I hope to be enjoying shortly.
This has been a good year in the garden so far.
After growing up on a produce farm with almost 5 acres of strawberries, it's hard not being able to grow them. The rabbits and squirrels always take a bite of every berry right before it is fully ripened and ready for picking. :(
Gah! That would get to me too. I've recently started spraying hot pepper wax on my greens since Honey Bun and Cinnamon Bun have gone to graze. But I couldn't keep up with all the rain. So recently I sprinkled a little fox urine and poof! No squirrels digging up sprouts, no bunnies leveling greens, and no skunks just passing by.
I've only being "curing" the garden for two weeks, but so far so good.
Here is a pic of my morning harvest and then a pic of my lunch. YUM!!!
That cheese ain't from yo garden, homie! :sklol:
Oh shush...lol. :)
Nonetheless, thanks for visiting the gardening thread.
I'm no gardener, but I sure like garden-fresh stuff. Love garden-fresh tomatoes.
It is way cool to be able to go out and get food fro the garden. I got broccoli tonight. I just wish I could do this all year round.
Here are some pics of all of the veggies I picked from my garden for my State Fair entries.
