We are so far away from having veggies! Temps are going back into the high 20s tonight! June (maybe late May) will be planting time for me. If we grew peas or broccoli, that would be different.

My banana plant has bananas on it. I'm going to try to get out this weekend and take a picture of it. Sadly, it's getting really cold here; so I don't know if the banana will ripen or survive the cold before they are ready.

That is so wonderful! I hope it makes it. When DS lived in New Orleans their neighbors had some banana plants.

Yesterday I put in some onion sets. We'll visit DS in Pittsburg next weekend and I'll give him the rest. I want a small herb garden. I've begun parsley and will put it outside soon. Will transplant to a larger pot tomorrow.

My gardens have different veggies growing along with flowers, and WEEDS. The bugs are also getting to my plants . Does anyone know of any homemade bug spray I could make to keep the bugs away from eatting the leaves? Not sure what type they are. Could be bettles.

We get Neem, which is commercially available in the hardware/garden shops. Its organic and natural.

Sometimes, I try a light soapy water and splash a little over the leaves. It works with aphids; don't know if it will work for the beetles.

Thank you for that tip. My husband makes that as well.

I'm growing tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, sweet potatoes, potatoes and pineapples. I think I'll be adding beans, lettuce and watermelon too, if I can finish the garden expansion. This is my 4th year, and the garden has gotten bigger every year.

Getting ready to till sometime in the next 2 weeks.
We've had weird weather so I'm trying to wait.

the plan is:
tomatoes
pumpkins
green beans
yellow squash
cucumbers
hubbard squash


I think that's it.
The last few years corn and green peppers have not been working out so we are skipping those.

The rhubarb is ready!! It looks fabulous! I will try to take a pic tomorrow. We are supposed to get rain this weekend so I'll try to get that done before the rain starts.

Getting tired of the rain!!

The garden is plowed but nothing has been planted yet. We are behind!

We did however discover 10 pumpkin plants that grew back up on their own (mom always tosses rotten pumpkins back in). So we dug those up and put them in a bucket before we tilled.

I finished the rest of the planting yesterday.

The onions, lettuce, peas, and potatoes I planted in April are coming along very nicely.

Then over the last two weeks I added: 3 tomato plants, carrots, beans, zucchini, cucumbers, basil, parsley, cilantro, oregano, rosemary and one pepper plant (since I have everything else for homemade pico de gallo)

The basil plant that I planted 2 weeks ago is thriving in the heat. I love fresh basil and tomatoes from the garden. Have a long time to wait for the tomatoes!

mommytotwo, are you harvesting already?

Just cherry tomatoes. I have Japanese chives all year long but the rest of the things are not growing well . Weird weather doesn't help.
