I always have hope but this year the garden is suffering. In Lubbock, Tx we have had no measurable rain since last october and this past June about 21 days of 100 degrees or over. Garden is SAD. So, off I go with plans for a fall garden but know very little about it. Any help will be great.

Gardening is a passion and way of life for me. I look forward to that time when I can start planning my garden and that time is upon me right now! As the weather warms up in April, my thoughts center around what veggies I will put in this year and what flowers will grace my baskets. And then there is May… when my addiction to greenhouses will kick in full force! Hahahaha!
Well…as things stand now, my husband Chris has liberally fertilized my garden plot with a sufficient amount of chicken manure. He has tilled it and leveled it so in a few short weeks, I will begin planting. If the weather cooperates, I will have most of my veggie garden in the ground by mid May. My veggie garden plot is approximately 120 feet by 60 feet.
This year, I tentively plan to plant grape cherry tomatoes, early cascade tomatoes, roma tomatoes, beef steak tomatoes, green bell peppers, jalapeno peppers, habanero peppers, yellow onions, red onions, zucchini, yellow squash, cucumbers, gourmet leaf lettuce, red beets, radishes, cabbage, brussel sprouts, broccoli, watermelon, canteloupe, corn, and herbs. This can change depending on what I find at the greenhouse!!!
So, here is to another successful gardening season!

Well, having never had a vegetable garden before in my life, I don’t have a clue were to start. So I have written out what I wan tin each part of the garden. I’m going to have atleast 4 rectangular beds. One for Root Crops, One for Peas + Beans, one for Brassicas and one for anything else. I have started digging out the first bed, and am hoping to get all four finished by tomorrow evening, then fertilize the soil, and get the seeds that I need for each bed. Other than this there is nothing else to say really. So if anyone who reads this has any comments ot ideas, to help me out, please do. I am on a strict budget as I do not have a lot of money to work with, my parents have lent me all the gardening tools I need. But they do not do vegetable gardening, they aremore into flowers, so any help is much appreciated. THANK YOU!!
It took longer than I liked, but the site has a new look and feel. Even though I added the blogs over a month ago, it was somewhat hidden, yet a few visited and one even got a post up before the whole site was revealed.
It feels good to have this out of the way and is just one part of the many puzzle pieces that is part of the grander 2.0 release that is still being completed.
I will take a week off to spend time with family on the east coast and then it will be back to coding and a few other special surprises when I get back.
For now you can enjoy the new site and let me know if you like it, hate it or don’t see much difference between the old much greener site.
As part of our new site, Plangarden is pleased to announce personal blogs. Free for every registered user of Plangarden.
Now you can document and share what is going on in your garden with friends, family and the rest of the Plangarden comminity of vegetable gardeners.
