    Gardens 2019

    It's about time somebody started talking about Gardens in 2019!

    Here's what I've got so far:

    Tomatoes
    Brandywine
    Moskvich
    Valley Girl

    Peppers
    Jalafuego
    Habanero

    Sweet Corn
    SS3778R

    Green Beans
    Provider

    Basil
    Genovese Compact, Improved
    Sweet Thai

    Watermelons
    Sugar Baby
    Orange Crisp
    Pollinator - ACE

    Did you know that to grow seedless watermelons, you have to also grow pollinator watermelons? I didn't before, but I do now. Does anyone have advice on what to do there?

    I will be doing Tomatoes, Peppers, Green Beans and Sweet Corn in my main garden and I've got another new spot that I'll be trying the watermelons.

    So, what do you have going so far?

    I did know that about the watermelons. I tried them one year here and got nothing. Our season just doesnít get hot or long enough.

    And thanks for starting the thread......

    This year i will plant my very first garden. I'm so excited. I've always wanted one and to be able to go out and pick fresh veggies will be a dream come true. I plan on ordering my seeds next weekend.

    I've never tried watermelons, so I have no idea what I'm doing. Mrs. Bubber doesn't like seedless ones, so that's why I'm trying sugar babies. The orange ones are an experiment for my grand kids. Hopefully we get some orange melons.

    I'm trying to start everything from seed. Hopefully it'll pan out.

    You guys are admirable for trying to cut out carbs. I just started growing corn though, so I'm all in. Let's see if maybe it won't get blown down twice this year.

    My wife and FIL start everything from seed, drives my MIL crazy because for almost 2 months her dining room table and every window sill are covered. not to mention tables set up everywhere from the basement to the living room with seedlings growing.

    Last year, I had the most beautiful seedlings,, in a mini greenhouse,
    one morning I slept in,, and did not open the greenhouse, the air temp got to 55 F. ,,, the greenhouse overheated and killed EVERYTHING,,,

    Luckily, a nearby greenhouse sells any plant I want for $0.30 each. Our tomatoes were perfect,,,
    Some of the tractors include JD 4105, JD 855, JD 650,,,, and,,, the IH 584 4WD
    My favorite attachment is the homemade landplane,,, EVERYONE needs one of those!!

    Bubber sugar Babies are probably the sweetest watermelon you can grow. They will be solid Dark Green outer rind almost look like a dark green basket ball It Putts Your rattle snake watermelons to shame the

    BTW if the Melons work out for you make sure You don't Plant them In the same Place In the Garden every year it leads to Vine diseases and Just Hope the bees do there Job
