Out of Control Garden

Post to Twitter .

As the season moves forward and my garden continues to grow, I have definitely learned some valuable tips & tricks for next year.  For today’s Tuesday Ten I will share some of my insight with you.

  1. I will not grow beans again.  They have taken over the garden and have wrapped their spiny little stems all around every possible thing in the garden.  Whether it be other plants, other veggies or a weed growing outside the garden, they have proven they can’t be managed in my garden.
  2. I will plant more tomato plants.
  3. I will have a bigger garden next year.  At least double the size.
  4. While it seemed like certain veggie seeds were spaced out far enough from each other, I will allow for additional room next year.  The size of a teeny tiny seed is much different than a thriving, viney vegetable plant.
  5. I will start growing my vegetable seeds in the house and earlier in the season to get a jump start on the garden.
  6. I will keep a closer eye out for the tomato thief.
  7. I won’t let the peas get out of control and become a tangled mess.
  8. I will plant more fruit like strawberries and raspberries and I will figure out to better care for my fallen peach tree.
  9. I will plant squash, onions and more cucumbers.
  10. I will better organize the craziness of specific plants now that I know how they grow and what type of room they need to thrive.

Here are a few updated pictures of my crazy, out of control, but thriving garden.

How is your garden doing?  What vegetables have you eaten already?

    Pretty nice post. I just stumbled upon your blog and wanted to say that I have really enjoyed browsing your blog posts. In any case I’ll be subscribing to your feed and I hope you write again soon!

  2. I said 1,2,3, last year. And this year I miss my beans, and wish my garden was even bigger STILL! lol. Your stuff looks great! We haven’t gotten to eat anything yet at all from ours! Then again, I had to replant my cucs and zucchinis 3 times already due to stinking birds and pests. Now they are doing great but man it’s set me back!

  3. I know! No matter how much room I leave between plants and rows, it never seems like enough!

    I’ll add your links to next week’s Garden Monday!
