Haven't taken any pictures of the veggie garden yet this spring as nothing is planted. Remember it is still very early for us here. My home grown tomato and pepper seedlings are at the hardening off stage right now. Hope to plant them fairly soon. Well, at lest start.

Last year I started planting out so early. Too early really and took a whopper of a big chance. Turned out okay but not wanting to push the planting season so much this season.

Here is a picture of the Smart Garden that we built this year. I am using a drip controller valve to turn the drip system on using my iPhone/iPad. I have it set on a schedule to water every day for about an acre inch of water per week. I am also using an EZ-Flo fertigation system to inject my water with constant nutrients each time it is watered.

@texaskitty--the oblong planters in my photos are Earthboxes. I use those for tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, beans, and a few other things. I love them because once they are set up they are relatively work-free during the growing season. I have drip irrigation on timers set up to fill each of the reservoirs in the EBs.

Welcome to NGA, @jgloe ! I love your keyhole-type raised bed Thumbs up

TK -- weed seeds can persist in the soil for a LONG time... hence the saying "one year's seeds, 7 year's weeds" Sticking tongue out . Endeavor to persevere!

Haven't taken any recet photos of my garden either, our temp hasn't even hit 60F so far -- but my garlic is up, and the rhubarb is coming along nicely, along with some chives that are inside my hoop house. I really need to move my onion seeds to the hoop house (from my indoor light setup) so I can get some of the other things potted up so they have more "elbow room." My Vinca (Cora's Cascade) plants, which are destined to go into flower boxes on my deck railing, are beginning to flower... and I have about 75 plants in a 48-cell flat Rolling my eyes. .

@texaskitty Hi there 😁
They are drip lines. They dont pool water.
I use regulal drip line, 1/2inch. The kind you punch holes in to place emitters. They have a plyers to punch holes. I built them. I put a
1 gph. Emitter every foot.
One line per row. I have sandy soil. Water spreads nicely, between emiters. It works good for me. They also have different gph emiters and with different pattern types.
You can also get regular drip line with emitters pre-installed.

Im guessing your using the black rubber soaker hoses. I had pooling problems when i use to use them. Very low water pressure, "helps" somewhat to stop pooling. Also you cant have more than 100 feet on one line.
😎😎😎
Anything i say, could be misrepresented, or wrong.

Ok. I had drip lines when i lived in CA. All the sprayers got filled with earwigs. You dont have an earwig problem? There are no earwigs ( or slugs ) here, so maybe ill give it another try. BTW, maybe you can answer this too...... If the drip line or soaker hose only gets a 6" area wet, do the roots on the other side of the plant die?
Thank You!

Hi again 😁
The water spreads further, the longer you leave it on. I have my plants planted along drip line.
Maybe i should have a line on either side of plants. Shrug!

They do make emitters that spray a circle or fan, but more difficult to set up and take down if you want to rottotill.

I do have earwigs and slugs.
1 gph drip emitter holes are to small for them to crawl through.
Mine stay connected to sprinkler line. If i disconnect. I plug hole so none of the little boogers can crawl inside.
Also ! You need to flush lines at least ownce a year. I only do mine ownce a year in spring.
Did i cover it all, for you ?

Tomato cages set up in the big backyard bed. Tulips currently blooming around there. They won't bother the tomato seedlings once those get planted.

Fence posts to mark rows and tulips in front. Told you all there is nothing to show really as far as veggies but it is my veggie garden.


Thumb of 2017-04-20/Newyorkrita/8a79a8

So I know there are some tomato cages stuck there which I intend to move. Along here I will be planting bush beans.

I have 30 green tomatoes. Yes, I count them every day. Don't count the blossoms, though.

Philip, I agree... I'd suspect it will still happen under the covers.

Question for you TK? Did you plant whole sweet taters or cuttings of them? I've never done it that way. I have always sprouted the vines from the taters in water, then broke them off and let the roots develop in soil before planting them in the bed. I will be curious to see how yours do...
These are developing roots before being planted.

This bed of lettuce & Cilantro is winding down because of the warm... it will be where the sweet taters get planted.

Evidently, they ship 6-12" plants. I intend to break off a few slips and have as houseplants. Replant next year. I got the exotic mix, so who knows what I will get. One review, the guy said he got ALL purple ones. I would like a variety.

My soaker hoses all went to pieces last Fall. Busted out in several lengths. I'll be depending on my home-made device this year.
