Bein north of the Houston area just enough where our lows in the Winter usually run 5-10 degrees colder than Houston proper, I'm hoping that the fresh tilled ground gets a good freeze on it... Was late in getting it turned over this year and I know grass/weeds will be a constant fight. Temps in the teens will help with that. If we don't get too much rain/ice, after next week, I'll turn it and make rows, maybe get some taters planted or some greens...

Not really in the garden but been puttin citrus juice in the freezer. Did about 25 lemons today. Juice 'em, put juice in ice trays in the freezer, fill quart ziplocks with cubes, use 'em as needed. Have about 10 bags of cubes and 10 plastic quart jars of OJ already. "Fresh" juice is always better than the watered down stuff from the store

We decided to leave it uncovered as we were ready to plant our spring garden. Hopefully it’ll kill the weeds too.

Carrots and onions will likely be fine. Radishes prolly not but depends how far along they are.

I'm thinking my garden will take major hit. I spent a day covering everything in hay or with row covers but the snow and ice collapsed most of the covers. Pretty sure celery is toast. Will see about baby lettuces, spinach , carrots and all the sprouts of other stuff. Not optimistic . Looks like collards and mustards are ok...for now. Will be 11 tonight. Kale???

Picked all the cabbages and brussell sprouts had enough of them already anyhow.

Oh well. All can be replanted

Hadn't planted anything yet but turned twice... This will sure help with weed/grass control! Turned it last week just ahead of this anticipating the possibility of a little natural weed control... Right now, it is a solid block of ice so "mission accomplished"... Also good for bug control for things like squash vine borers... any that were there that I turned up are toast so to speak...

I know some plants, like tomatoes, need to be planted in a different spot each year to deter disease. Do I need to do the same for my herbs such as basil and cilantro?

Pretty much lost everything. Suprisingly my mustard greens look really well. Few carrots might make it but everything else is dead as a doornail. I was suprised my kale killed over. I thought for sure those were going to survive.

Lost power and water for 3 days off and on and then for 3 full days after that. But we saved all the plants we have started so far that we willbe selling. Was a bit of a pain housing 1200 plants in the dining room floor and running a space heater and grow lights. Getting a couple of shelves set up with mylar and grow lights that should hold 40 flats each.

What lights are you running to germinate/seedling. LEDs?

I have several all bought on amazon
Marshydro 1000
Antlux 4ft grow lights
Vivosun t8
Barrina led grow lights
And now im experimenting with the Barrina led shop lights.
Many of these lights are overkill for growing to transplant stage.
But i will say i like the antlux lights (but the blurple color hurts yours eyes after a while)

The Barinna led 6500k shop lights if they work as they appear to be would be the best route. Cheap, linkable and dont have the funky color spectrum that hurts your eyes.

I decided to till the ground this first year only. Too compact and full of weeds, cactus and rocks to expect weed fabric or cardboard to hold back nature. I bet I'll pull 1/2 ton of rock out of this bed. It was unbelievable how many hundreds of rocks came out of the top 6 inches.
Will be combining orchard and garden.
Brought in 12 yards of a custom mix of compost, crushed volcanic rock, azalea mix, and garden mix to make rows.
I probably need another 24 yards to complete all rows. My trees took a lot of the mix.

Over 120 pepper plants, another 140 tomato, hundreds of seedlings started of multiple lettuce varieties, and edible flowers. Too much to list.
Found some scrap wood from the house build up in the attic and made this nice cold frame.

I have a couple of orange trees that have turned brown since the freeze. They didn’t have blossoms on them. Would fertilizing them be a good thing to do?

Ok so I almost got everything lined up. Couple questions.

1. I wanna do some green beans but limited on space. Would one bush bean variety be enough to eat off of? Or should I plant 2? Not trying to save stuff, just basically eating as we go. But if Iím only gonna have enough for dinner once and then be super slow after that I might plant two plants.
2. I want green onions. Iíve always called them chives but when I located some at the store they were super tiny and not at all what I was looking for. Any of you guys or gals point me in the right direction regarding green onions?

You will need at least one row of several feet(maybe more) to get enough greens bean to eat. I have limited space in my garden so I usually pass on the green beans. I plant them in the fall sometimes. Bunching onions are what you want if you are just looking for scallions. A few bulbs and you will have a lifetime supply

Here is our little starter greenhouse inside our shop with grow lights. We are thawing out now but here is a picture of our garden last week.

We going to have a small greenhouse built this summer by an Amish guy that sells and erects greenhouses.

Well our garden spot is just a big ol' mudhole again!! The Snowvid got it pretty wet, but did some good bug/weed control for me as I'd just turned it over with the tractor, but now it's rained twice more on it since last week... Supposed to rain again on it Friday... I'm thinkin' raised beds and hydroponics are in my future!!

I have only heard them referred to as chives when people are talking about baked potatoes. Maybe in other states at the salad bar there are chives instead of green onions for your spud?

People also call green onions scallions and onion tops. They are ****ed good no matter what.

I was hoping the snovid would kill the weeds so I just let the mustards, lettuce, and snap peas die as I was ready to plant tomatoes. Well, it didn't kill nary a weed for me. Probably because they are hardy natives I'm guessing and everything else in my winter garden is wussy furriners.

I planted two cherokee purples, two early girls (one was gallon size so hoping it fruits by easter), a black krim, an arkansas traveler, some heritage one called a vorlon at the community garden along with a jalapeno and a serrano. I have two cherry varieties,
a juliet and a sweet 100, I will plant at the house.

I trimmed all the parallel branches off the tomatoes and planted them as deep as could since that is supposed to promote strong roots and bigger fruit.

Our cilantro and parsley made it through the freeze after cutting it way back and has already come back nicely. We also left one curly kale plant to try to get it going year round.

We will plant green beans, zucchini, squash, and cucumbers once the community garden gets its seed packs in.

Nice. My cilantro made it along with the onions, garlic, and lettuce. I usually plant tomatoes, cukes, etc spring break as thats when I have time. Typically have to cover once or twice until the freezes are done with but its worth it to get fruit a hair earlier than most.

Got this shelf wrapped up and set up. Will finish adding the other lights later tonight. Have 2 other shelves that hold the same amount combined as this one, they are full as well.

My tomato seedlings are in the ground. I know itís a gamble, but spring break plans changed. Weíre going to the beach in Florida instead of her coming here for the week. I couldnít keep them alive in the trays that long. Oh well, I can always buy plants.

Little late getting here but wasnít sure if I was going to be able to plant one this year being our spring outage is just starting. But I had 3 days off and being that I had tilled my garden spot up about a month ago, I was able to get my snap beans and sweet corn planted. Hopefully around the first of April Iíll have a day off and get my watermelons and peas planted.

Praise the Lord, I was able to turn my bride's garden spot over for a third time last night... If we can bypass this next round of rain, I'll get her some rows plowed and she can start planting next Wednesday (her next day off)...

I just plowed up a spot for my garden and suddenly hit me that my chickens are free range.
Will they interfere with the seeds once planted or sprouts?

So this is why everyone ignored me when I created a thread about my garden. I knew you guys were out there. I just planted 10 tomato varieties, jalapeno, habanero for that awesome hot sauce with peaches, eggplant, tons of herbs that I will cook with, shi****o peppers, and green beans. I suggest you peeps getting thai basil because the bees where all over that stuff last year in my garden.

Will they interfere with the seeds once planted or sprouts?

Yessir they can when it's small... My wife's "girls" are not completely free-range, but we let 'em out when we are home and around. With a garden that's growing good, they do some pretty good bug control, but they will pull emerging plants and scratch in the dirt for bugs and such if you don't keep 'em out... maybe a hot wire for a while?? My grand pa used to do that when he'd start his garden... After a couple weeks, the chickens wouldn't go anywhere near his garden...

Listen to SWS as us old guys learned the old way. Planting before Easter may cause you heartache.
