“To plant a gar…

“To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow…” – Audrey Hepburn

It’s about that time again!! Almost time to begin planning and plotting…  to start seeing the potential in that little piece of ground and calling the shots.

Can’t wait!

What are your plans for your garden this year?

  1. We just moved back to Colorado and are renting this year, so hopefully I can build beds and grow everything. It is getting expensive to have to keep building and buying soil because we are renting, it’s pretty annoying. I just try to plant a lot of thing in pots, which works better than you may think. I grew watermelons in pots last year!! 🙂 This year my hope is to grow and can more stuff than I did last year, and to try some new recipes for cukes/pickles. I am going to be growing (hopefully) tomatoes, squash, watermelon, mint, peppers, onions, garlic, green beans (also to pickle) carrots, beets (to pickle) radishes, collards, cabbage, broccoli and cauliflower, lettuces, herbs (esp. majoram) peas, tomatoes, tomatoes, tomatoes, and some other stuff that I haven’t decided yet LOL. All heirloom this year, though.

    What about you? Are you guys tired of winter yet? 😉 We just got almost 2′ of snow in the last two days..

    • Hey! We’re plotting and planning ways to do a lot more container gardening – we need to find a way to grow decent jalapenos this year – we struggled last year to produce many per plant – and those that were produced were really small.

      We’re also goign to work on maximzing what we do grow in the space we have – with limited water.

      Winter? What’s that? Doesn’t feel like we’ve even had winter this year. There is no question in my mind – if we don’t get some rain here in the next couple months – we’re going to be on some serious water restrictions this coming summer.

      Sorry to hear about having to start over, that’s no fun. We’re also starting to shift a lot of our vegetables to heirloom and saving seeds.

  2. Last year my jalapenos were stunted and not doing well in my raised garden beds so I put them in 5 gallon buckets. I drilled 1/2″ holes in the bottom, put down 2 to 3 ” of rock and then filled them up with a mixture of peat moss, vermiculite, and a LITTLE garden soil. With a week they had doubled in growth. Then I started pruning them I had peppers coming out of my ears!!!
