I’ve really enjoyed gardening this year, I do every year, really, but it is so zen for me. I feel like I am getting pretty successful at growing a variety of fruits/veggies/herbs, with less effort (as in more effective spacing/staking/caging, rotation, pest control).
I planted the garden on 4/15/2014. I picked my first zucchini two weeks ago…with extremely dry and warmer than usual temperatures here in San Diego, it’s grown very rapidly.
I’ve got zucchini, cucumbers (yay for crop rotation, they’re actually growing/producing!), 5 different kinds of peppers, 5 different kinds of tomatoes, kale, 3 different kinds of lettuce, mint, lavender, basil, oregano and chives. I’ve been picking tomato blooms off the plants for about 5 weeks, so the plants can grown and produce a higher yield. I’m letting them go now so should have tomatoes soon.
WOW, awesome garden. That’s the best way to learn about gardening, trial and error, trying different things to see what works and what doesn’t.
Wow, your garden is so impressive! I would love to hear some tips on how you get it so good, I don’t seem to get my garden growing too well
