Starting to think about starting the garden. Picked up some seed, and we are starting to set up our sead starting area. Who else is getting the bug to get started? Any new plans for this years garden? What are you going to change?


For mine this year, I am planting a LOT less tomatos. Went crazy last year, and had WAY to much. Also no corn this year. Did not grow well last year, and it is just easyer to get the local stuff. Other than that, mostly just not going to let the weeds get away from me like they did last year.

I gave my garden an intital tilling after its break over the so called winter months, and expect to hit it one more itme just as soon as my soil dries out a bit more and then plant, probably before this month is out it should be planted.

Usually plant snap beans and black-eyed purple hull peas, corn, and butter beans. Last year we went with the pole variety of beans and peas, and while you may not get as much off the pole variety as compared to bush, it was more than what we could use or even giveaway, and picking was so much easier on ther back. Gave me a perfect opportunity to use those cattle panels for something other than laying against the barn. This year we will also cut back on tomtatoes as well. Okra will also be planted and some water melons and squash.

I have.

Even have started working on it. I have it all drawn out and will start buying once I know the freezes are done. I did purchase some stuff this winter at a huge discount, and have it all in a green house staying nice and warm.

I can't wait!

I am thinking about spraying Clear Out on the entire garden plot this year to kill everything. The weeds always win out every year no matter how much weeding and pulling them out I do. I am not sure it this will work either but am considering it.

Well inasmuch as my garden and fields are buried under 3 feet of snow, it's kinda hard to get into the spirit of gardening. I'll start preparing the ground by mid April and have it fully planted by Memorial Day. There is just no rushing old man winter.

Ingersoll & Chief - A real good way to control weeds is by heavy mulching with either rotted hay or straw around your plants and garden paths.

I'm not real sure what Clear Out is, but it sounds similar to Round Up. I think you should ask yourself this question. Why would you want to pour poison on the soil that feeds the plants that you will eventually consume?
