I like the rows because i have a bedder and sweeps on tractor. I can do most of hard work including weeding just driving down the row.

I also use the hill to put my drip tape in. Water only the plants i want not the weeds.

My grandparents were staunch row gardeners and tillers. I did not have the same success that they did when I spent several years doing it. Then I remembered my grandpa out there with his ghostbuster backpack on nuking the gardens with all kinds of supplements and chemicals or using his tractor sprayer. .....then it clicked the difference. They both suffered from many health issues before passing. I will stick to the no till organic methods.

A couple questions for the pros here. First, is there a halfway decent drip system that Amazon or anyone else offers that is good for a small garden on 15-20 plants? Second, what are y'alls favorite plants for spring/summer that produce good yield and is something that people actually eat for sustenance (i.e. broccoli, cauliflower, greens, squash, etc.)

Hoss Tools has a kit. It will last you many many years with the amount of drip tape you will use. Maybe over kill but proven.

Check out their youtube channel. Lots of good info especially wanting to learn specific plants

Yes sir. Agree. I might choose to add a bit of miracle grow to re boost later in season for a second round. I build my soils, use compost and fish guts, organic manure every other year, Epsom salt on tomatoes sometimes, Never any chemical insect killer. My soil smells good, worms love it. It does need rest on occasion. My beds are raised slightly with Red Cedar boundaries. Not 100% Organic as almost impossible but close. And 90% of years it produces healthy quantities. Non caged chicken poo is Very good but hot so be careful and hard to get enough. I no longer raise em so oh well. No poo

Have any of you guys ever seen Leon Sloan on youtube? I met him last year at his huge greenhouse/gardening center in Kingston Ok. He got me into using syrup tubs for my plants. The tubs are made up so they hold a reservoir of water. He also got me into using 55 gallon food grade barrels to grow using the hydroponic method. This man is a wealth of gardening knowledge. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCSD..._BlLuWSiEr7TJQ

Watched several of his video's very interesting concept. I am going to try a couple of containers this year off to the side of the house. Honestly the only thing that has kept me from doing container gardening is the appearance. Not the most prettiest thing to have my beautiful backyard full of orange, white , blue five gallon buckets.

Yes I understand that they aren't very pretty. I need to get some paint on the drums before my cucumbers get planted in them. Hopefully that will help with the appearance, plus keep the wife happy.

I compost hay along with my kitchen scraps. Add a few yards of turkey litter. You can get a lot of good material from looney litter outside of gonzales. Been using them for years. yes it is hot but that helps get the compost cooking. For the area i am gardening i need a lot of it so cant buy it by the bag or local landscape company.

Got the garden planted and have a few things coming up, but now the temp is supposed to drop monday night. Ive watched the weather app today and its called anywhere from 36 to 45. Dad lives in Denver City, hes always gone by the Good Friday planting rule and this year hes already planted and at one point weather app called for snow in Denver City on Monday night lol. Iv got straw hay and plastic i guess if forecast holds true or gets worse.

That would definitely work. I might do three 2x6's to give you some room to add mulch or compost yearly.

My raised beds are only one cinder block high....but I pulled out the 'ol shovel and dug out about 1'-1.5' down of clay before filling. So its a little deceiving.

Most of my raised beds are 2 cinder blocks deep. I also cemented 1" pvc in the blocks every 6 ft so i can but up a hoop house over the beds if needed. my biggest delay in my direct sow plants is usually soil temp.

I started my hydroponic grow barrels today after work. I found a couple black barrels that have screw on tops that i cut a hole in. Its a one time fertilizer blend that will keep the cucumber and squash plants growing all season and no soil needed other than what little bit i used in the planter cup to start the seeds.

As long as it's in the upper 30's I'm not too worried. I'll put out more hay around each plant to keep frost off is about it.

You don't. I just chop and shove and spread and some remnants still feed the dirt. I covered with logs, bigger rocks etc . They moved em. A dog might work but my dog who passed recently was inside at night. I let her out some at night and had less trouble.

Don't take much to grow 3 of the 4 only veggies you need in Texas, tomatoes, jalapenos and onions. Taters are cheaper to buy at the store but do well in 55 gal barrels with drain holes at bottom and manure on top.

Taters in a barrel are easy to harvest. Just turn the barrel upside down.

No Jalapenos for me this year. I grew enough last year to feed a Mexican army daily and my wife still just continued to buy them from Kroger's instead of walking 30 feet out of the back door and picking them.

Got a lot growing well in the backyard. Very happy with the 55 gallon cucumber barrel. It's taking off.



Lots of other stuff including bok choy, sugar cane, black berries, romaine, watermelons, corn, mint, carrots, kale, potatoes, onions

check out gardening with leon on YouTube. basically fill the barrels with water and a fertilizer solution called master blend. the mix ratios are easily found with a internet search. You only need about an eigth inch of water to touch the bottom of the container the plant grows in. the roots will grow out of the bottom of the pot and get fed in the water. basically maintenance free.

Me & the kids just planted 5 rows black eye peas 75 yds long (1 single row, 4 rows broadcast width of tiller - 4'), 3 rows okra 25 yds long, 2 rows squash 25 yds long, and a 10 x10 yd patch of watermelon/cantaloupe.

Finished right as the rain started falling.

Seed rate varies. Ethan spaced a pk down entire row.
Bella ran out every five yds, lol.

Not a serious garden by any means. I'm just hoping to get a little okra and squash out of it.

The deer can have the rest.

Not sure I’ve heard of this?? Do you have pics of the plants before you planted them? Seems interesting......

Here is the only pic I have...perhaps biodegradable is a better term for the pot... These are sold under Bonnie Plants brand... Some of the roots had already broken through the material. I pinched of bits of the bottom to help that along.

Those are biodegradable but they instruct to tear it off and put in into the hole with the plant. Then throw the plastic away.
