Updated progress on my garden, 2014 - pictures at the link....post your garden pics!

Last edited Sat May 31, 2014, 11:00 PM - Edit history (1)

I've been blogging my gardens since 2009 - it is a great way to keep a garden diary. Here are pics from the past few days - my side yard garden and driveway garden - and this year I am trying straw bale gardening....still in the prep stage.

2. I've been asked to try it out and research growing in straw bales...

in the driveway, going to do tomatoes, peppers and eggplant...and in the big garden, squash, melons and cukes in addition to some tomatoes. It's going to be fun (I've been doing the recommended prep, measuring temperatures, real Mr Wizard stuff - my garden is my laboratory!)

4. Craig, you have a truly gorgeous garden

 

I'm a novice, and I'm pleased that I have some near flowers on my tomatoes. Gosh, yours is freaking awesome.

6. beautiful

Pictures at the link. I'm so jealous. I have some Spring blooms, which were planted last fall. They look like onion blooms or giant chive blooms. They are pretty cool. I'm off to my photo hosting site. Be right back.

7. Aw, and you have one of your dog buddy.

Oh, there were plants in that photo too? Everything looks great.

Let us know how the straw bale gardening goes....and if it works well, we will need details of what you did.
