Asparagus and Tomato Cages

Posted by olemike on 07/02/2014

I purchased some 7 ft. tomato cages this spring and the little lady thought they were a little tall.  However, as can be seen from these photos, I think the tomato plants will reach the top before long.  This is an heirloom “Abraham Lincoln”.  It is doing pretty well so far.  We are just now starting to get ripe tomatoes from it.    I also have a couple of shots of my new asparagus bed.  We planted crowns in January and hope to be eating fresh asparagus next spring.  Probably won’t get too much but should be much better another year out.  I have not grown asparagus before, so if any of you have advice for me – please send it ASAP.

2012 Spring Garden Update

Posted by olemike on 05/23/2012

I finally have all of my raised beds planted so thought I would do an update for my blog.

The 5 beds you see contain  Yellow Patty Pan Squash, Zucchini, Cucumbers (being grown on a trellis), Pole Beans, Beets, Tomatoes (both determinate for canning and indeterminate for eating). Nothing looks really great right now but many of these were just recently set out.

Bed # 5 still has onions and garlic which we planted in the fall.

We are just now starting to harvest and dry them.

Here is a recent picture of my potato box.  It is still growing quite well.  I do need to add some more soil right away.  This is as tall as I will make the box.

We should start to see some produce in a few weeks.  We are already getting some small Patty Pan squash forming.  It won’t be long now.
