Who's getting a garden going this spring?

I always do. This year, with my grandson staying with us and his love for snow peas, it's a must! Going to start turning it over this week.

I'm looking forward to the having the garden again. I really like the root/tuber/bulb type crops, they aren't fussy and store well. We've done potatoes, onions, beets, turnips, radishes, kohlrabi, and carrots. Will probably try parsnips this year. Also had good results last year with the green beans and cabbages, made some tasty sauerkraut. Then there are the strawberries! :thumbsup:

With the weather we've been having, I probably won't be doing any root tilling for at least a month!

I finally have a yard this year...probably will be starting small with the basics. I would like to grow some fresh herbs too...we move on April 15 so I'm going to have to get to work fast on getting things prepped

Good for you...
starting small is best...it makes it manageable and not so much like work

4 different Tomatos. 4 different peppers, swiss chard and a zuchinni is about all I can find room for without taking over some of the wifes flower beds.
I would till more but I wouldn't be able to get to my wood pile.

We have been using 4 foot flower boxes for herbs, that works OK, but would love to plant some root vegetables.

I have about 1000 other things that need done, but I still can't wait to get started.

Last year we took a trip to Alaska in June. I told my son and daughter-in-law to have at the garden while we were gone. I had lettuce, broccoli, spinach, peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers, squash and a couple of other things growing. In one night, a deer came in and wiped out the whole thing, save the tomatoes!

This year, with all the snow, I've kept a close watch for deer tracks across the back yard. Surprisingly, there were none. Usually the deer will come out of the surrounding woods to eat the shrubs right next to the houses, especially if there is snow on the ground for prolonged periods.

So, I spent last week turning, liming, turning again, raking, hoeing, planting and fertilizing. Everything was set and in place. All that had to be done is the second row of lettuce, which should go in this week. Then, last evening, while preparing dinner, my daughter looked out the back window and said, "Look at the deer in the back yard!" AS soon as I planted, they showed up!

Either way, I'm going to be eating something this summer. Either veggies or a nice barbecue! :wink:

Slack, trust me, they're not that intelligent. Whacking them with a pellet gun might work for a couple of days. After that, they'll be right back. Pretty much, once they set up house, you're in for the long haul.
