I worry that my current spring compulsion will not last for a year round commitment! My goal is a 12 month garden and March was the start date. I am shooting for 6-8 beds each one completely replanted every 4-6 months. We shall see. In the meantime, I have made it to May. LOL.

Here is my first cheating box. It is preplanted mats of butterfly and hummingbird plants. My food needs are being met but I needed some food for my soul so box #5 went to that. My dog doesn't have a lot of respect for my space, as it turns out.

I have planted corn and pole beans together thinking the beans would climb the corn. Apparently you plant the corn first and then the beans later. Oooops. Oh well, I will make it work somehow. I have 22 corn plants showing so far. Yay.

My long suffering beans are finally coming around thanks to some very focused TLC. They are blooming already - which may just be from stress - 2 beans and it closes up shop! Garden coming along Icon_smile

I added the mint as per previous posts in hopes of a) growing mint and b) perhaps keeping some of the bad guys away. Beets, onions, potatoes, tomatoes are looking pretty good - carrots seem to be slow and beans were challenged but live and learn...

Looking very nice, Chopper! I am going to have the same issue as you do with corn and pole beans. Mine are a little smaller than yours. Keep me updated on what you come up with! Smile

I made the same error in judgment and planted my beans and corn the same day (oops). While I planted them in the same box, I didn't put them as close as Chopper did - my corn is in the corners with the bean in the center of the box.

I bought some bamboo poles and put one in each square and then "leaned" the poles in adjoining squares towards each other and wrapped the tops together with garden wire to make a teepee. Now the beans can grow up the teepee pole instead of the corn.

I will probably do the same thing - drive some poles in as a stand in for the corn - unless the corn looks tough enough to take it. It should be an adventure.

Your beds look great!

I planted bush beans thinking I wouldn't need to stick them, but...now I'm thinking they need some support...if just to keep them from overtaking their neighbors!

Happy gardening!

I actually have just such a set of poles from a tomato plant I had a few years ago. May need to get a second set!

I am curious to see which will win the growing race. My Christmas pole limas are showing but not actually out of the ground yet, but 100% germinated (7 out of 7) and looking....energetic?? while my Cherokee Trail of Tears pole beans are 50% germinated (2 of 4) but the plants that germinated have (big!?) seed leaves out. One corn plant has true leaves; the others are working on it or just coming up.
