Do you have a Victory garden?
Here’s the update on our little 20’X40′ plot in the community garden…
We have a Ruth Stout bed of potatoes that seem to be doing well. The broccoli, lettuce and herbs are doing great but we need to replant some of the other stuff because a late frost took them out. We have seed trays going and they should go in the ground this week. The fruit trees we planted last summer seem to be doing well too. Sorry your HOA sucks.
Home Owners Association…. a special little he’ll run by anal- obsessive types.
for food storage: fermenting adds a lot of value. Kimchi baby !
Things are really starting to grow. I now realize that I have picked up a majority of Indeterminate tomato plants, so a vine hanging framework trellis is in the cards for tomorrow. Update pics:
Growing up….You can see the corn experiment in the top right of the picture against the back wall.
The Sam’s Club inverted water bottle experiment is now a producer..
My garden. In the Netherlands, we have ‘volkstuinen’, allotment complexes from which one can rent a plot. I rent 2. In summer it is my living room!
I like to plant lots of flowers in and around my veggie beds. It gives the garden a wild look. But excellent for biodiversity and to attract bees. I built the greenhouse about 10 years ago from recycled materials.
Artemisia annua and A. absinthium seedlings; A. annua is used in the possible prevention concoction ‘covid-organics’ from Madagascar. Just as an experiment.
Hey VegasJim — thanks for the thread.
I was curious if anyone was planting a Victory garden, and if so what it looks like?
The big box is 3′ x 8′. Radishes are done. Working on parsley, peppers, cucumbers, tomatoes and a few others. Just finished the smaller box a few weeks ago. We are in schnoodle break-in period, letting the dogs get comfortable. This box is for potatoes and beans.
What challenges have you faced, and what creative ways have you resolved them?
Two dogs. One likes to play king of the mountain and stand in the box. The other eats dirt? I’m not sure. I’m going to build some framing using PVC irrigation pipes and fittings to support — I’m not sure… chicken wire is in my head.
Those are some good looking gardens!
Things are starting to heat up here in Vegas now. The plants are doing well, but many of the tomatoes are splitting on the vine. I have put up trellis with 40% shade cloth to see if that helps. Pics:
The Vegas corn gamble….
40% shade netting…
The Sams Club hanging water bottle. This guy just keeps on going…
I also have a small backyard, but I decided to rent a Sun Joe tiller to plow all the land. I’m currently in a process of planting land with flowers and veggies. My dream is to make a grove of chillis.
