2012 Spring Garden - ******Updated******

Postby Tezell » Fri Apr 06, 2012 12:14 pm

Here is some pictures of my garden this year.

I planted an area twice the size of last years. It is approxiamately 100 feet by 200 feet.

I planted 12 rows of zipper peas, 4 rows of cream 12 peas, 6 rows of corn, 2 rows of okra, 1 row of squash and cucumbers, and 1 row of watermelons and cantaloupes.

I have already plowed the corn 2 times and the peas 1 time.

My new to me cultivators,side dresser and 186 planter seems to be doing a good job. I have as good of a stand as I have ever had. We have been getting rain showers on a regular basis and that has also helped.

Now if I could learn how to plant it straight I would be happy. I just have too many things to watch at one time(seed,fertilizer and where I am going).

Dave, That's just what Boss told me when we were planting corn two years ago. :D

Somebody last year called it "contour planting". What ever you call it, I seem to be good at it. :oops:

Mr. Bill,

If my rows were longer, I think they would look just like that. They tend to have a curve in them. :lol:

We have had an unusually warm spring here in Mo., more like early summer than spring. I planted a good bit of my garden 3 or 4 weeks earlier than normal. We are having a cold snap right now, no frost yet, but the frost may get a lot of it, or at the least set it back some, just have to wait and see. Normally in this area you do not get gardens planted till first part of May.

It is amazing what 4" of perfectly timed rain and some fertilizer will do. I plowed it yesterday.
