Another lil update..

Category: Numb's Garden Life | Posted: Sun May 10, 2009 2:39 pm

ok so i thought i'd post a few pics of things ive been up to..

first is a shot of my plants (mostly tomatoes and peppers) i started that are doing really well despite being flooded by lots of rain. This is my area i start stuff beside the shed at the back of the yard.
You can see on the top left of shelf my first crop of corn growing..

Ok this is the area i grew my corn last year which did pretty good. Its just a 3 x 3 area. Looks like i had extra corn and planted them outside the 3 x 3 on the right.

Ok these next 3 shots were taken yesterday while i was finishing up the corn area. I decided to add some more width and length to it as well so now i can grow 24 plants at once if i want which is better than the 9 last year. What i plan on doing is growing 12 and then i will plant 12 more later on in the season in the bare spots for multiple harvests instead of having 24 harvested in one go.

You might be thinking this isnt enough room for corn but i have selected a small hybrid variety called early Early Sunglow which does well in a variety of temperatures and is quite fast to grow. The plants only get about 4-5 ft tall.


i really need to get the cucumbers, squash and other stuff in the ground soon.....i feel like im getting behind..

oh i forgot about some more iris flowers that had come out. Heres a nice dark purple and white one.

I'm inspired! My neighbor has some lovely irises,too. (I think I'll ask for a couple of divisions.) Your dark pink one is absolutely gorgeous. Great addition to your garden! As for the corn ... usually too intimidating for me,but,after seeing those beautiful, healthy plants of yours, I think I'll try it next year!

Nice pictures of your garden! I see your garden has no weeds. I'm a little envious! Good job!
