Awesome garden Trazey! I LOVE to see city dwellers farming their little corner of the world! Wow...no weeds either! I spent 1/2 the day pulling weeds and still have a plenty!

I planted a second season crop of watermelon, cantaloupe and cucumbers today. If we don't get an early frost, this batch should be producing mid-October. Oh my, more weeds.

Great garden !!!!

About the only thing I am able to harvest at this time is spinach. Planned to put in peas but didn't get around to it this year... not sure what happened there..lol.

The only downside to gardening is come winter I really miss my fresh tomatoes.... nothing else compares.

Beautiful garden and I'm so jealous. I've just started growing annuals in containers on my little apartment patio, and am now considering that next year I will see what I can do with growing my own little container veggie garden.

How easy is it to grow jalapenos? I love them and tomorrow I will have to buy just one for a recipe I'm doing this week. I don't even know if the store will know how to charge for one jalapeno pepper.

I'm proud of the NO WEEDS that's my little routine every morning to get my coffee and scour the landscape LOL my DH says I'm a bit anal and that the outside doesn't have to be as clean as the inside hahahah


and Pita the jalepenos & cayenne are super easy, i bought a little plant already started for $1 at the market assuming it would die the next day but it really took like crazy! the peppers are hot but not mind-blowing

It's just not fair!
I'm in Zone 3--I'm guessing you are a Zone 5? Our first frost free date is supposedly May 21st--but we had frosts in June this year--and NO RAIN until this week, practically.

Not that we planted anything. I still haven't figured out the timing of everything yet.

We DID build boxes in anticipation but then ran out of money to fill them with dirt. Sigh.

That does give me a whole year to figure it out, though!

Alana-- We built a 10' x 4' x 16" 9tall) raised bed this year and I know what you mean about not being able to fill it. We were, but my goodness, it does cost a bit -- unless you know someone with a lot of compost AND you have a way to get it. And the time to fill it!! It took me hours to fill it with all the components mixed well!
