Default Garden 2017

A couple of progress shots, so far.

The first wave of Tomato seedlings have been living outside for almost two weeks now.

Getting greens set out but still some mulching to do

Perennial stuff is waking up now that the weather is warming.

I'd freak out to see an asparagus bed and to taste fresh asparagus. How wonderful!

Beautiful garden, Randall. Everything looks so healthy; tomatoes have nice thick stems! When do you dig your garlic?

Just a couple of update shots. Everything is almost keeping up with the weeds.

Holy crap batman! You got ripe peppers already in zone 6a!

I assume you planted out pretty mature plants. If that's not the case, could you share your success plan?

Oh, shucks. Thanks, all! There's definitely some sweat equity growing out there.

That pepper plant is in a 5 gallon grow bag. It's a Ghost Pepper I've overwintered a couple of years.

I call it overwintering but it really keeps growing through Winter in a sunny window and I just prune it to look like a nice house plant. It even squeezes out a couple of peppers through the winter. I'll eventually bump it into a 10 gallon bag once I know for sure I won't have to drag it back indoors due to weather, haha.

I know several people here overwinter peppers. It's definitely a great way to get them to really produce for the season.

I hadn't seen asparagus growing and had the stalks pictured closer together. Ready to rubber band, like celery.

Beautiful work again this year Randall.
