I bought some blueberry plants earlier this year to plant in the yard. Two varieties of native plants, and a few hybrids. They are still sitting in my nursery. The hybrids were like WOW this year. I picked a fist full from them this morning. I can not believe how much fruit one little plant can produce from them.

Jacob, looks like you will have a nice crop soon. In for the results.

I have 2 blueberry buishes, 2 fig trees, 2 grape vines, and 2 banana trees on the way from an auction on ebay. They were cheap like 60 to my door so we will see how mail order fruit does.

question about starting seedlings pre-spring...

do you guys use just grow lights or do you also maintain a slightly warmer than room-temp climate too?

BUMP!

Let's see some current pics!

It's still early here but stuff us up, harvesting some things. Radishes are done, lettuce has been going for weeks. It keeps growing back after we cut it so it looks a bit shaky.



Peas are rolling nicely. Picked the first ones today.




Already have harvested some epic sized broccoli.




Picked the first carrot today. We will have way too many carrots. Karla got a bit carried away.



Green onions are JUST starting to be ready to pick.



Cabbage has finally started forming heads. It will be a while for them.



Tomatoes are very small yet, as are cucumbers and cantaloupe




Green beans and corn are small but doing fine.



If you look carefully you can see the yellow four wire electric fence. Keeps the deer out of the gardens. Transformer is under the white bucket.



So, how is everyone's garden coming?

I have some humongous cucumbers, a squash that is growing up, and lots of tomatoes. Also picked a red onion today. Pics to come. Tomorrow.

it's a little early for those. and i'm sure there's a farmers market within 5 miles of you that will have them. and shipping tomatoes is part of why most tomatoes taste like chewy white garbage instead of flavor bombs. Get off your ***!

Also I just took this pic. My lawn is OUT OF CONTROL. Seirously, I am waiting for a notice from the county.



In the box:
tons of
Kale
Arugula
various lettuces
basil
foot-tall tomato plants
cilantro
beets
parsley
jesus I dont even know it's all so big.

Stein: I think most lettuces can be re-harvested if you only take a few leaves at a time. Except that I love the delicate little light green butter (or is it bibb?) and like to pull those out by the roots.

In a nutshell, what's the reason for raising the garden?

because the compacted topsoil needs to be amended anyway and digging down 12 inches in your yard pretty much sucks *****.

I wish I could find some contractors to come to my house and remove my full-body pubic hair suit.

Too busy with this:

for gardening.

We may do a raised bed, but our flowers always die, I don't see why vegetables would be any different.
