Chesapeake. Outdoors. Now.
I don't know hardly anything about gardening, but seeing pictures of your garden always makes me wish I had some place to plant one. Do you have to go buy new seeds each year for a lot of your plants? Or do you harvest and keep them for the next year like the millet?
That's a great question Alex, because it affects the cost/benefit balance of even having a garden.With plants that can be cloned, I clone them (sweet potatoes for example). For plants unlikely to hybridize with a different variety (primarily, wildflowers), I collect the seed. Most everything else, I grow from seed (purchased online) starting in Feb-March, in the basement, under the lights.That approach screwed me on peppers this year, as the "from seed" crop got stunted by 6 weeks of super hot, dry weather. I should have bought back up plants, grown in a greenhouse somewhere. Above all, it's an ongoing experiment, and you get smarter, and work less, every season. Find a place to plant, and you'll learn a lot - quick.
Your garden looks so nice. It does have lots of sunshine during summer, and I suppose its great to have peppers and tomatoes.
Congratulations on a wonderful garden! I know it wasn't easy and took a lot of work but from the pictures it's just like heaven!
Hi!It looks like you have a lot of varieties of vegetables in your garden.I agree with you that space is important in a garden. On top of this, May I add that I think it's also a matter of how you creatively use the space and the appropriate vegetables that you put into your garden. I have seen small gardens yet full of appropriate vegetables and every space is creatively and artistically utilized.
