Garden to date

Planted to date: green beans, black-eyed peas, two variety of sweet potatoes, white potatoes, cucumbers (long), pumpkins, okra, two varieties of tomatoes (Beef and Roma not quite ready), green (bell) pepper, cayenne pepper, jalapeños peppers, eggplant (I can find any Japanese ones this year and the seeds I planted didn't sprout), yellow crookneck squash, and courgette (zucchini) squash.  I still have some room in both the back veggie garden and the garden in the little valley.  I have other things I want to plant; got to have cantaloupe and watermelon and butternut squash.  I will find out.

    A perfect assortment of goodies. How do you get your sweet potatoes? Do you buy plants or start your own? I remember my mom  having a "Hotbed" for starting her plants. It was a deep layer of chicken manure from the hen house covered by a layer of dirt. Last years sweet potatoes were planted in the dirt and the manure produced heat  so that they could be started out really early in the spring Then they broke off the sprouts and planted them in long beds.

      I enjoy gardening work as much as I do the rewards of fresh veggies.

      That is nothing compared to what Mum and Dad did; they feed the family from the gardens.

    Nice assortment you have there! It's been awhile since I have grown sweet potatoes. I usually mulch them with black plastic to help them along in the cooler spring weather with our shorter growing season here. Have you ever tried growing white sweet potatoes? (they may be more technically a yam).

      And once again Vic you have mentioned something we have in common.... white sweet potatoes. Yes we called them sweet potatoes and Daddy could grow some that were as large as a man's arm. They were a greenish white when cooked and very firm. I loved them cooked in sugar and butter. They made a great snack for a hungry little kid to eat cold .

      Any of the orangey things were called "Yams" and were hated by the whole family. I still am not too fond of the flavor, but we do have them occasionally.

      No, I haven't.  My sister likes to try more of the different things; like lavender eggplant.
