Tilled up half an acre for this year's garden yesterday...

ReedBaizeMarch 6, 2014

Been having so tough times on the personal side of things and find that gardening takes my mind off of things by keeping me focused on other things. As a result, my garden got a bit bigger this year. Doing .5 acres and tilled it up yesterday. I've posted my grow list for tomatoes but it's going to get posted again along with everything else I've either planted or will plant.

Whoa! I see the Farmer's Market in your future.

Great work.

If you aren't going to do the farmer's market...the food banks will take donations from you. Sharon and I helped harvest for a GW poster last year and we both sent some of the overflow to two different pantries.

Reed, I see lots of canning jars, dehydrators and freezer bags in your future. ;)

Reed, It sounds like you're ready for spring now, and I'm envious because I bet you'll get to plant earlier than we will since you're further south now. What's your average last frost date there, and are you in zone 8a or 8b?

You have a great grow list and I am sure you'll have a terrific garden this year.

I assume you have enough family members nearby that they'll be able to help you eat all that produce.

The garden is in Hamilton at my father's house. The zone is 8a and average last frost date is March 1-10.

Reed, If the weather behaves, you'll be able to start planting warm season stuff really soon, you lucky gardener you. I am completely green with envy as I look at the icky, cold, gray skies outside and the forecast low for us tonight.

Hamilton. I like Hamilton. We haven't been there is a long time, but I love that part of Texas. Now I am craving a slice of pie from Hico's Koffee Kup. It doesn't even matter which flavor. The last time we were there, it was chocolate pie with meringue about a foot high (slight exaggeration). If I lived in or near Hamilton, I'd occasionally go AWOL from the garden just to go to Hico to eat lunch so I could have chicken fried steak and a slice of pie.

I hope the weather there is cooperating with your garden plans better than the weather here is cooperating with ours.
