we plan to put in some strawberry & tomato plants, maybe a pumpkin or 2 if we have room. we're not going big, just gonna use a few spaces already tilled & landscape blocked that the previous owner did. she had a garden too, had fake flowers planted all over we've got a trellis between the house & the garden shed & i may try to get a grapevine starting on there.

but the ground is still froze down about 5 feet & it's gonna be -15 tonight.....so no gardening anytime soon

An 8'x8' will feed a family of two all summer easily. All you need is squash tomatoes peppers cucumber and eggplant. Just keep seeds in the ground every three weeks and pull out the oldest. Three of everything should be perfect. I'm organic but if you keep Miracle Grow on it once a week it will be healthy and productive all season. Don't use pesticides. No need to bugs aren't as bad as you think. I've never sprayed and I have never had problems with bugs till fall. That's when they eat.

I have an issue Trying to grow: we are in the desert, at around 3700 ft. Elevation. That makes for an early and short season. Right now I'm at: 6 plants each of Kirby's, bananna peppers, romaine, and Several cactus( pear & finger)...

I am in transition so I might start some stuff indoors and plant it in pots so I can take it with me when I move by June 30th. I have been planting flowers and stuff though. What we don't have here in CA is rain. Plenty of sun and plenty warm to grow stuff- the trees are blossoming to beat hell. Its going to be a strange year here.

I'm still getting settled in myself. Moving, working, and remodeling last spring really put a damper on my garden plans last year. That's in part why I'm so excited about this year. I've got a lot to make up for.

Mowpower, it sounds like you're right about where I want to be. My plan for the last couple of years has to been to produce almost all of my own meats, veggies, and fruits. I'm good on the meats but work and moving really set me back on the veggies and fruits last year. So I'm ready to go this year. The big thing I'm keeping in mind now is what to plant when so that I can keep stuff coming in all summer. I also figure I'll do a large crop in late summer of stuff that will store well to carry me through the winter like onions and potatoes.

My grandmother used to sell stuff at the farmer's market when I was little but I haven't gown anything on that scale in years. At the moment I don't have time to sell at the market even if I produced more but I'm hoping to be producing enough to be able to sell some things in a few years.

And for all ya'll stuck in the cold, it won't be for much longer! Daffodils are blooming here now and spring is just around the corner. Ya'll won't be far behind. And on a side note, the further north you are the greater your change in the length of days. Because ya'll are further north when it does warm up you'll have longer days than us. That means more sun light and more productive gardens when you do get to plant.

I am so ready to get outside in my garden. Our soil is horrible so I plan to build raised beds and bring in a few truck loads of dirt. I also wanted to build a cattle panel green house. Sadly we're still under about 15 inches of snow and winter is not letting up anytime soon.

I think I am gonna build a small raised planter (were renters) and plant some stuff this year. I grew up on a farm in NY and we always had our own little food plot too so I think I will just start off really small and see what I can do.
