Okay everybody! It's that time again and for the month of August we are going to Show off our Gardens! Here's one of mine!

This is part of my front yard garden! The pyramid is looking a little thin, I have harvested a few squares of radishes, turnips, lettuce, spinach, and beets, and the deer have helped themselves to quite a bit the last few days Monthly Avatar Theme for August:  Show off your Garden! 950477

Nice theme for August!
Your garden looks great Cheyanne Monthly Avatar Theme for August:  Show off your Garden! 3170584802 You live in a beautiful area, to bad you have all the wildlife to contend with What a Face

Here's a shot of my 4x8 box. My tomatoes have grown outta control. The carrots need to start being harvested and my chard needs a haircut. My peppers have looked a little poopy here the past week or so too. Not real sure what's up with that thinking My eggplants have loved the heat and are doing really well. My purple beans are also starting to bloom, so hopefully real soon I'll have beans Monthly Avatar Theme for August:  Show off your Garden! 3170584802
I shouldn't be taking shots of the garden during the heat of the day, but here's my August avatar for now.

This was my the overflow setup.

Herbs, peppers, squash and the sourthern field peas experiment.
Field peas supposedly bear better in not so nitrogen rich soil.

Rooster, I did not realize that you were a cattle panel gardener too.
Looks great, I love that teeny little fence around everything, seems to keep everything in place.

Yay, what a fun theme! Here's a side shot of my garden. It's kind of bare at the moment because I just harvested my potatoes, bush beans and carrots, but it won't be long til it's green and bushy again.

Can gr peppers and bush beans be moved to another location without harm?

Everybody's gardens look great!! I'm getting ready to plant some fall crops in the TT. The tomatoes are coming in faster than we can eat them now, lots of peppers, acorn squash, beans, and I have one of the rare black watermelons that's pretty good size.

This was taken about the middle of July. I must say that the "bush" squash has literally taken over a portion. Next year I'll put it at the end so it can roam free.

Monthly Avatar Theme for August:  Show off your Garden! Garden1cropped

I've planted some lima beans, celery, beets and snow peas in some of the squares since then. Limas, celery (planted the end that I cut off - it works) are doing just fine so far. Going to be planting some carrots tomorrow. Any square that is close to being empty will have fall crops. Root crops are great for the winter months. Broccoli is still making babies.

They are to help hold the warmth, even now the nights get too cool for good cuke and tomato growth. In the hoop house are growing ID tomatoes, basil, okra, yard long beans. In the cattle panel bowed and covered with plastic are melons, cucumbers and summer squash and a tomatillos. In the 2 shorter cold frames are eggplant, peppers, Roma tomatoes and tomatillos.

My main garden is doing good, pole beans in foreground on tepee; on the trellis left is Tigger melons then cucumbers. In the ground several pepper plants, new planting of carrots, lettuce, spinach and radishes. Not show are my tomatoes - not worth seeing. I will be at the farmers market tomorrow buying more tomatoes.
