Potatoes, we'll start adding straw for them to grow up into. 1 method, 2 versions, we'll see how it works.

Growing Cows
Posted on Apr 14, 2015 9:54 AM

The past 2 days I've had cows in my garden when I woke up.

Thumb of 2015-04-14/pmb2005/a01f3f

Hopefully the owners of the cows will fix this problem or I'm going to have me some beef, in trade for my garden they are trampling.

On a happier note, here is my new Solomon's Seal blooming.

Here's some pictures.

My tomato trays. I've been working on slowly hardening them off. Thumb of 2015-04-10/pmb2005/d54251

This is going to be the year of the pepper, which is ok, because I have never been this successful with peppers before. Love grow lights!

These will be golden raspberries! That's some cumin behind it.

Love the color of this lettuce. Thumb of 2015-04-10/pmb2005/a1889d

Why are my garlic leaves turning yellow like this?

These are from Mara Des Bois seeds I started this year.

Chandler Blueberries planted Fall 2014. Thumb of 2015-04-10/pmb2005/0973c5

Duke Bluerries planted 2013 from the Tennessee Valey Co-Op. It had Jersey with it but the Jersey died. I can't grow a Jersey Blueberry to save my life. Can't wait to taste these berries again.
Thumb of 2015-04-10/pmb2005/40b1b5

This is probably a weed, but I love it.
Thumb of 2015-04-10/pmb2005/a050de

Blossom on my graphed Fuji, Gala and Yellow Delicious tree bought from the Tennessee Valley Co-Op. I need to take some more pictures of this as it opens.

My Brassica collection is a learning experience, as is anything with gardening! This is the best looking ones we have grown yet.
Thumb of 2015-04-10/pmb2005/7890db Thumb of 2015-04-10/pmb2005/b53f3f
The hybrid broccoli we planted did not do well at all, but the Purple Sprouting Broccoli took off like a champ! Followed up by DeCicco Broccoli. The Chef's Blend Cauliflower is doing excellent as well, but we are still very early in the season. The Fallstaff Brussels are doing marvelous too!

This is second year rhubarb from root stock. I think it likes it. Thumb of 2015-04-10/pmb2005/46b563

This is a Trillum 'Sweet Betsy' from Overhill Nursey, Vonore, TN. I bought this year. It's suppose to be red in the middle. hmmm.
Thumb of 2015-04-10/pmb2005/938800

Hopefully these are treasure boxes!

That's the walk thru the garden for now. Hope y'all are enjoying your beautiful April Showers!

Learning as we go
Posted on Jan 22, 2015 12:47 PM

I made my own potting mix today out of necessity. I don't have Miracle Grow Moisture Control Potting Mix on hand but I do have this cheap stuff.
So here's what I did.

Thumb of 2015-01-22/pmb2005/18135e Thumb of 2015-01-22/pmb2005/f461f5 Thumb of 2015-01-22/pmb2005/fa09f2 Thumb of 2015-01-22/pmb2005/25313a
I took my potting mix, sifted out the "chunks" then added the perlite I had on hand. The last picture is the finished product. Hopefully it is good enough that I will get results from my pepper seeds.


This is the 94X70 plot I've tilled for our new garden this year.

Here is the baby broccoli growing so fast.
