This year we have two vegetable gardens. The one in our backyard (24' x 16') and we were able to get one of the larger plots at the city park, community garden (10' x 50'). Our gardens are growing and doing well so far.
One Week Ago we had Sugar Snap Peas.
This week, now we don't. The growing season is over for our spring crop. We plan to plant a fall crop of peas.
Our pea crop was very successful. We had two rows 16' long and we ended up with 4 side dishes and 3 stir fry dinners. I also froze 10 bags for side dishes and enough peas for 6 more stir fry meals. We are very happy with the outcome.
In our backyard garden we have 4 Beef Steak Tomato Plants, 12 Roma Tomato Plants, 4 Cherry Tomato Plants, 4 Grape Tomato Plants, 4 Patio Tomato Plants, 5 Broccoli Plant, 4 Cabbage plants, 4 Bell Pepper Plants, 4 Hot Banana Pepper Plants, 4 Sweet Banana Pepper Plants, Radish (2nd crop), Pole Beans, Lazy House Wife Beans, 2 Egg Plants, 3 Tomatillo Plants, 2 Zucchini and 2 Summer Squash, Red and White Onions, 4 Cucumbers. Todd just planted in the place where our peas used to be, 3 Summer Squash, 2 Zucchini, 2 Cucumbers.
We have had a few years of growing tomatoes and peppers in 5 gallon buckets but nothing as we did once we started to garden in the ground. We are amateur gardeners, this being 2010 our 3rd year of gardening in the ground. We have found that we like to garden both in the ground and containers. The containers we have found work better for some vegetables such as carrots cherry tomatoes and it is more convenient for us to have our lettuce and baby spinach on the porch in a container. Each year we are trying new things. Each Winter Todd researches more on the internet on how to make the next year better.
