Is anyone growing veggies?

Love the square foot gardening!

Our garden is almost fully planted. All we have left to plant are our pepper starts and half of our tomatoes. I finally remembered to take my camera down to the garden this morning.

Surprise potatoes. Guess I didn’t fully harvest that bed last year.

We just added a few paw paw trees to our fruit patch

I also planted zucchini, yard long beans, cucumbers, peas and soybeans all from seed and we’ve harvested the last of our asparagus, beets and kohlrabi.

Looks good!! You guys must really love garlic. I had never grown garlic before, so I planted cloves from two bulbs last year and only one of them failed! So I’ll have almost 25 bulbs in a couple of months.

I think I live in a less warm climate than you do - I’m growing zucchini, squash, tomatoes and cucumber from seed as well but they’re still on the windowsill, we can’t plant them outside until late May. This time of year Mr. Imma is always really annoyed with all the little pots on the windowstill and I have to keep reminding him it’s only for a few weeks. He’s a bit clumsy so he’s always afraid he’s going to drop them on the floor when he opens the curtains.

I’ve never tried growing yardlong beans or soy beans, I’ll write that down for next year! Yardlong beans are called “kousenband” (garter) in our language. This year I’ll just try several varieties of snap beans and hope they’ll do better than last year.

We do love garlic at our house! If you’ve not read up yet on how to know when to harvest and how to cure it do a little search. Yard long beans are super prolific and need lots of space to climb.

I am late starting my garden this year. I just had great vegetable soil delivered, today! lol. Stay-tuned…

Here is my middle daughter with our three cubic yards. I over-estimated and will have left-over. lol

@MissingWillow I love your garlic bed! I have not grown garlic yet, but it’s on my list. :grin:

Oh the shoveling!

Bought potatoes to plant today but I am too sore from weeding to move. Luckily they are easy to plant.

I also need to get the sweet potato bed covered so it can warm up. Planting at the end of May.
