Garden time!

Garden time!

Postby chadbragg » Sun Apr 07, 2019 3:55 pm

This was always my dads favorite time of the year. A memory popped up on facebook today from 4 years ago. This was my dad's last year to have a garden. I continue to plant (although only 1/3 what pops planted) mainly because of him. I give the majority of what I grow away to friends and family. So far I have:
14 tomato plants
12 cabbage
8 peppers 4 different types
6 broccoli
10 Cucumber
6 rows sweet Corn
1 row Taters

I plan to plant pretty much this again in approximately 3 weeks. I really enjoy it Atleast until temps get really hot. Image

Here are my current 2 garden spots.

That looks like the size of my old garden. I do miss not having space to do a second planting in the raised beds. Looks great Chad. No okra?

No I'll plant some later. I don't eat it but will give it away

I meant to say tiller. No disc will pulverize soil like that.

My dad would make it look like that with middle buster, disc, and harrow. Many many passes and time though.

I went no till on my garden last year. Just as with farming and food plots the results dont lie. Never once did the plants even look like they were stressed for water or anything else. I would have stopped having a garden but I wanted to try it and see.

Chad, did you get a ton of rain Saturday? How did your garden hold up? Terry, what about you? Anyone else? We got 3” in a short period of time. Our road washed to pieces, but the garden did fine. I covered some plants in case of hail.

Yes we had a huge rain. Everything is looking good. I'm hoping to get it fertilized and tilled tomorrow

they grow tons of fruits/veg's just south of us in pueblo co. supposedly once it warms a little more, the area will be loaded with farmers markets & such..

i couldn't grow nothing in my yard.. too rocky & poor :) plus, it's still getting down in the upper 20's at night

Updated pics! This is the longest I've kept it up. Usually by this point I've thrown the towel in. ImageImage
