Geez Eric... 200+ views and no replies.. Mad Gardening is a LOT of work! How are those grapes doing this year? Are they established enough to build an arbor? My great-grandfather built an arbor from 2" iron-pipe about 7 feet high with galvanized steel cross-straps that took-up an area of about 6' wide x 20' long. It was a sanctuary on a hot Summer day.. like a "cave" to play inside. When the grapes (concord) ripened, my mom would harvest them and make jelly. She would preserve it in glass jars sealed-over with melted "Gulf-wax" that were kept on shelves in the cellar.. along with Mason-jars full of stewed-tomatoes from our garden. Those were the days man!

I went on vacation for a week and there were 3 ft tall weeds in my peas and tomatoes, with similar weeds in my roses. I have half cleaned my rose bed out, less of the garden. Gets frustrating.

nice little garden Eric, In my house there is a 28X28 concrete room under my garage that used to be a cictern.Iv'e been thinking lately about feeding some grow lites with some solar panels and starting a year round garden. I don't know if it would be worth the trouble or start up cost, but it would be nice to have fresh veggies all year round

I have 10 tomato plants and basil. I planted Abraham Lincoln tomatoes. My wife started them from seeds. She just poured the whole package into some dirt. I spent hours untangling them. I had them underwater shaking them to get them apart. I managed to get a few out which I planted. I lost one to heavy rain and wind but the others pulled through now over 6' tall. Then they got a crazy idea to plant 3 pumpkins. They're all over the place and the pumpkin is now 40" long running all over my tiny yard with 3 pumpkins currently about 15 lbs a piece.

Well, lord only knows how I missed this one. Used to be a big gardener, but have done peppers exclusively for the past few years. A few mild/sweet ones, and mostly hot, and I am talking up to and including the Carolina Reaper. Here are a couple of pictures of my raised pepper bed and two others that will be cared for and kept in a beautiful greenhouse for the winter. Your garden is much more organized than mine, and it shows!

Here is a list of the varieties I have going....

CAROLINA REAPER, 7 POT BURGANDY, JAMAICAN HOT CHOCOLATE, PRIMO, TRINIDAD DOUGLAH, EARLY JALAPENO, PEACH GHOST, 7 POT BURGANDY, YELLOW DEVILS TONGUE,JIM NARDELLO,PEACHGHOST SCORPION, RED BHUT JOLOKIA, TRINIDAD MORUGA SCORPION, FATALII GOURMET JIGSAW, NUMEX TWILIGHT, YELLOW BRAINSTRAIN, HUNGARIAN WAX, 7 POD JONAH, TRINIDAD PERFUME, PETER PEPPER, BIQUINHO, FATALII GOURMET JIGSAW

ok, so here's the cayenne plants, about a month or so later. The plants in the lighter color pots did develop peppers earlier, but the darker pots have significantly outgrown them and will yield more peppers.

Here's my garden, not large but cool nonetheless. The pumpkin is getting larger by the day. It has a yellowish color but I'm currently seeing the segment lines on the exterior. How does your Garden Grow  Dscn2610  The pumpkin in the back running all over the back , currently it has it's early flowers at times they only last a day or two.    

              How does your Garden Grow  Dscn2611 This is another pumpkin making it's way into the yard, very problematic to cut grass and it can't be moved. The main vine has little hands that reach out and curl around anything it gets a hold off.

How does your Garden Grow  Dscn2612 Here's the tomatoes and basil. Ken

Eric, my son once he started into gardening has really enjoyed it. He takes real good care of them. Cleaning out the weeds, making sure they have good airflow and staking and stringing. My mother used to grow pumpkins and she had a lot of them. I knew what was going to happen if we planted them but they didn't. I have one that has gone up and over the azalea bush. The Big Max pumpkins that I'm growing average at 30 lbs and can go as much as 1oo lbs. assuming you don't let to many grow on the vine. They're also a good choice for pies which I would love to experience. Ken

I've heard that placing boards underneath the pumpkins will keep the sides that would otherwise be sitting on the ground from rotting and disease. This is recommended for squash as well. Maybe cut-up some old barn-board into squares.

I work at a laboratory where a lot of the
research is  in microbiology(DNA etc).
Every year a few scientists ply their
talent to the pumpkin.

I've been working on my plants that I grew from seed this year inside the house after plowing and tilling and even made a garden bed for the first time this year to try out. But yesterday we had a little Storm come through and the wind was blowing I was burning trash went by to take a look at my garden that I've been struggling with it because of weather and other issues and here's what's in it now not growing though....How does your Garden Grow  20210510

Been there Eric.

Two days ago wind and rain finally brought this half dead pine tree down.  Spent yesterday cutting it up and burning the branches.  Used the little 16" Stihl to limb it, the Husqvarna 18' to cut it up.

Wow. Sorry to see the trees down to the both of you. Hopefully there was no damage to anything. But after a hard days work, you will have some well earned firewood to use.

@Eric - You will hopefully love that raised bed garden I am sure. I made one here about 6 years ago just to plant my hot peppers in when I was bigger into them. I started in the garden, then once I made my raised bed, I would never go back. Mine is 2 pieces of 2 x 8 stacked one on top of the other for height. I am not sure if you did or not, but I did also put a heavy 'liner' or whatever that stuff is to stop weeds and such from growing through before adding my soil. I only get the odd piece of grass growing up along the edges.

@Bob - I love the little 'cottage' in the background. It is something like that I had always wanted up on a quiet little lake somewheres. Absolutely beautiful.
