So I posted a thread last year and got few responses, but I'll try to keep this one going myself, at least. I just planted some veggies in a 4x10 raised bed, and I'm learning the ropes! Looking forward to a year full of harvest.
So far I've planted:
Broccoli
Spinach
Tomatoes (Better boy)
Green Bell Peppers

Going to figure out how to construct some support cages for my lil' tomato plants, but right now they don't need it.

Please feel free to post what you're growing this year! Any questions, advice, good resources, etc. are welcome as well.

I have help from a master gardener, so if I get any good tips, I'll let you guys in on the action.

I'm tilling up my plot next week. I think it'll end up being around 12x20 feet. Corn, potatoes, tomatoes, peppers. Not sure what else we want yet.

I'd like to see progressive pictures of gardens in this thread, like weekly or something. That'd be cool.

I'll try to keep updated pics as best as I can. 12x20 is lot of space!

What method are you using? I'm sticking with square foot.

Maybe try covering it with an old blanket or something. i know that works with fruits and veggies, but not so sure about a whole bush.

Got 1 plant in my apartment which I water with 1dl of water every week (well I forget most of the time but it's still alive (I think?) so whatever).

That qualifies me as a gardener, right?

I want to have a garden but don't have my own yard

Maybe I'll get an apartment with a balcony and I'll grow herbs or something.

I have been transplanting the purple Irises that have overgrown next to the house. I planted them about 2 years ago and they really took off. Those bulbs are really hardy so if I transfer some this growing season I am sure I will see some really great blooms next year due to the culling. we have a nice southern facing slope in our backyard which makes for good drainage and decent sunlight.

I would love to take advantage of the changing seasons and start an herb garden but Im not sure where to begin. Fresh cilantro and tomatoes for salsa would be awesome this summer.

No idea. It's green and has leaves. It's long too. Not a flower, I guess


EDIT:

Like this but bigger leaves

All you with no space need to look into container gardening. It's doable!

we have hybrid tomatoes growing, accidentally cross pollinated cherry tomatoes and black Russian tomatoes and now have very sweet, slightly larger cherry tomatoes.

If I did everything right I might have some sprouts to show everyone by next week.

I'd like to grow stuff but the soil on the 4 acre field i live on is impossible. It's like beach sand with thin layer of grass. It used to be a watermelon field about a hundred years ago...never recovered from all the nutrients taken out I guess.
#33
Most likely there are some plants that will survive in your soil, even if it is depleted.

Legumes, for example, pull nitrogen from the air and put it in the ground, so you don't need really fertile land to grow those to begin with.

Never heard of it.

All my parents and grandparents ever tried to grow every now and then out there was the southern favorites of peas, squash, tomatoes, and okra. Most of the time it always failed.

Legume is just a broad class of vegetables

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Legume

"Well-known legumes include alfalfa, clover, peas, beans, lentils, lupins, mesquite, carob, soybeans, peanuts, tamarind, and the woody climbing vine wisteria."

If it interests you enough, you can send soil samples somewhere to see the pH, nutrient content and soil composition. Most people don't care enough to do that though

My skills as a gardener are pretty amateur. That's pro level stuff right there
#38
Man, this thread makes me miss living with my parents. Massive vegetable garden. Being a student blows when you have no garden except a shitty paved patio and a dilapidated shed your fking nerd of a room mate sprays his warhammer in
As soon as I move out I'll be getting all up on it though. I grew tomatoes, cucumbers, broad beans, peas and raspberries when I was little.

Nice

I should've gone the raised garden route but I didn't know how much space I'd need. I know better for next year, though.
