    Default This Year's Garden

    There's still some work to do, but this year's container garden is coming along. I did rebuild one of the raised boxes too.

    You seem to favor container and raised boxes and such.

    Just curious as to why?

    that looks very nice! I do a fair share of container gardens and plant in 5 gallon old buckets too. Raised beds particularly work well in AK as they get to an earlier warm up in the spring time and have better drainage in the event of a wet summer.

    Snow won't begin to melt here until anywhere from late April to mid May depending on spring temps and conditions. -42 here last night, but warming to -20 during the heat of the day Hopefully we will get a tad warmer soon.

    Looking forward to more folks garden pictures.

    Mrs. Crash will not let me dig up any of our very small yard. I did dig up a small section a few years back for sweet potatoes. Something ate well that year. Every single one had been gnawed on. I'll probably pick up some bird netting to build a cover for a few of the containers this year - at least the strawberries anyway.

    Are you going to try string beans this year, or maybe the climbing peas?

    Howdy all, my peas have been in the ground for about 3 weeks. We are getting much warmer days now. Waiting for tater planting time. I have new ground that has not been used for over 30 years, hope it does well. This will be the largest one i have ever raised so far, gona need lots of luck and good weather. I have a feeling of a wet spring and extra dry summer hope i,am wrong on that.

    I hear ya, looks good though.
    I use some containers, but like to plant in the ground as watering isn't as much of an issue.
    My hanging tomatoes need watering a coouple of time a day in hot weather.

    Showoff. Looks like my garden could be on hold again. I'll get as much as I can started in pots and hope.

    Wow! Crash! Looks great! I lost some ground there was a hard freeze yesterday morning. I haven't surveyed the damage yet. Just a minor setback though most everything is still indoors.

    My garden will be up to snuff one day. I have enough supplies for about 7 more self-watering buckets and I have a few extra for some experiments I may try.... Great looking garden!

    Well we have had rain which we needed last week and then Saturday night we had snow again and will be cold all week. i hope we are going to get a garden out in the next couple of weeks. I love to garden except when it gets so hot and the humidity is feels like it is 100%. I am planting greenbeans by the pound and plan on lots of tomatoes also. I hope the weather warms up and stabilizes soon.

    Woke up yesterday to snow on the buttercups.

    No garden plans in this area for at least one more month. We get frost until end of April.
    Come to the dark side, we have pudding.

    Excellent post Crash. I am going to try tomatoes in a bucket this year. I will use your post as reference.

    If I had a big stick and he was closer I'd just thump him with it.
