Damn bad ass set up OP! We don’t have much yard space at our house but we do an herb garden and some tomatoes and peppers every year. I’ll report back once we get it going

It is Springtime. Let’s see your gardens.

I roto tilled a spot for sweet corn today.



This will be 100 yard long rows. I’m planting Aspire Round Up ready sweet corn. I bought 2500 seeds so 4.5 rows at 6 inch spacing.
That's awesome and I can appreciate the commitment and work. But, "round-up ready" sweet corn? Didn't know this was a thing.

Grew up with a 5 acres of vegetable garden and 30 acres of sweetcorn. It was so much work but worth it.

Increasing my garden size this year. I'm building two raised beds here in the next week or so. Here is what I have started indoors:

Peppers: Fish (medium hot), Bull Nose Sweet, Jimmy Nardello (long chili looking but sweet)

Bee balm for pollinators

The other pictures have the lettuce and tomatoes I've started. The third picture is random seeds I found in the garage and because I hate clutter I decided to plant them and see what happens. The flowers have already sprout after only a few days. Pepper seedlings.JPGLettuce Tomato seeds.JPGRandom Seeds.JPGSeeds.JPG

Im hoping my asparagus plot comes through this year. I did well for 2 years and didn't do much a couple years ago. So I let it go untouched this past year all the way to fall so the roots could get plenty of sun power.

Also going big on Romas. I made my own pasta sauce last year but I way underestimated how much you need to make a good amount. Thinking 12 plants this year.

You doing heirloom?
I’ve been growing my own chile’s since 1998. I have been documenting the crop (weather,temps, taste, heat) each year and have been saving seeds since 2002. I replant my seeds every year and I believe my seeds know our climate, my soil, and how I treat them. Or at least I hope they do. So they aren’t heirloom per se but they are adjusted to my soil, etc.

Planting garden 1st weekend of May so don’t have to cover plants at night as much. Early Girl and Celebrity tomato plants started 3 weeks ago. Will plant cakes, green beans, radishes, lettuce, zucchini and bell peppers.

We still have enough herbs and spices to skip this year.

The floods drowned my sweet corn. I’m
tilling it all up and starting over.

I can’t abide a 50% germination rate.

Other vegetables will be planted as soon as the ground dries.

Welcome to farming.
