Hey, hey, hey, today is Tuesday Talk!
…we’re chatting about veggie gardens 🙂 .
I just looked back, and I don’t think I’ve done an official gardening post in four years…which probably explains why my garden hasn’t been looking totally fab.
I NEED YOUR TIPS!
Every spring, Andrew and I plant a garden, and it’s always kind of hit or miss with what grows the best.
Last year, my green bell peppers were amazing! We had so many! The year before, we had a ton of jalapenos. I would say that we consistently do well with herbs (basil, thyme, oregano), but the tomatoes are a real hit or miss. Some years, we have a ton and other years, they either don’t grow or we get a bug investation.
We learned several years ago that less is more since we only have this one little area for growing (and then the occasional pot). Right now, we also have green onions and carrots in the ground. I will say that both seem to do well for us too!
We tried strawberries about two years ago and got one. One. Any tips on growing strawberries? We grew them in a pot, but clearly, they did not do well at all. Our climate is hot and dry here.
So, any tips, suggestions, ideas are appreciated! We don’t grow a fall/winter garden only one for spring and summer. I like to grow anything that makes quick work for a salad (so tomatoes, jalapenos, bell peppers, green onions, carrots along with herbs…if I could grow feta cheese, I’d do that too 😉 ). I know my kids would love to grow fruit! Any fruit ideas that might do well here in our area? Basically, I’m all ears. Help. Please.
All of my little gardeners would sure appreciate it 😉 .
