Who has a veggie garden?

Who has a veggie garden and what have you got planted? Hows it coming along?

I have close to 1/4 acre planted. I have okra, sweet potatoes, tomatoes, yellow corn, white corn, onions, watermelons, cucumbers, pumpkins, cantaloupe, jalapeno, cayenne, green bell. bush type snap beans, peas, cilantro, yellow squash, zucchini plus my usual cooking spices I grow.

The corn is tassling. I did lose about 2 dozen stalks of yellow corn to one of my goats. The sqaush is getting loaded I will be picking my first 50-75 squash within a week. The bush beans have some little beans starting on them so I expect to start harvesting them soon. 9 of my tomato plants are big enough that I finally quit pinching the blooms off, the other 11 need to grow some more before I let them produce. I can't wait for them fried green tomatoes. I will not get a good crop of cucumbers because only 2 came up out of a whole row I planted. I can trade with the neighbor because he will have plenty of cucumbers. Most everything else needs more maturing before they get close to producing.

30' X60' roughly. I too have okra, plus red potatoes, tomatoes, sweet corn, cucumbers, 2 types peppers, bush beans, lima beans, garden squash, parsnips, rutabagas, turnips, carrots, cabbage, cauliflower, lettuce, swiss chard. Most of the stuff is up, except the potatoes and carrots. You all down south get a jump start on us yankees. Planting just started last week of may.


I donít carry a gun because I want to shoot someone. I carry a gun because I want to die at a ripe old age in my bed, and not on a sidewalk somewhere tomorrow afternoon.

Sounds like a great garden. Pretty big at that. True we do have the growing season but you guys have that nice black soil. If you could get northern soil in a southern climate you would really have a killer garden.

I am a little behind in getting my garden in this year. We did get the 18 tomato plants in this weekend. I need to get the tiller out again before planting the corn, green and yellow beans, lima beans, watermelon, green peppers, chilie peppers and jalapeno peppers. I thing that maybe a few other items but not too much.

We also had a late frost a few weeks ago and things are DRY here. Suppose to get some rain tonight and tomorrow night too so that will help.

I've got black soil, bought it by the bag at Home Depot. We planted cukes, corn, maters, bell peppers, squash, beans, strawberries, cantaloupe and watermelon. The plot is only about 20x30.
