How does my garden grow?

By Tim Gamble

Cherokee Purple Tomatoes
How does my garden grow? Quite well, so far this year. We did not have a late frost here this spring, like we had two of the last three years. The rainfall has been almost perfect, with neither too much nor too little. We are off to a great start. I hope it stays that way.

What have I planted on my slightly less than a ½ acre in a small neighborhood?
  • Loose-leaf lettuce (2 varieties)
  • Onions (2 varieties)
  • Carrots
  • Radishes
  • Regular Tomatoes (3 varieties)
  • Cherry Tomatoes (1 variety)
  • Bell Peppers
  • Hot Banana Peppers
  • Sweet Banana Peppers
  • Cayenne Peppers
  • Yellow Squash (2 varieties)
  • Zucchini
  • Cucumbers
  • Lima Beans
  • Cantaloupes
  • Watermelons (2 varieties)

Rosemary Bush
My herb garden:
  • Rosemary
  • Chives
  • Oregano
  • Parsley
  • Lemon Balm
I will be planting planting cowpeas (pink-eyed variety) and some more herbs soon. I use a variety of gardening methods, including sheet-mulching, raised bed, and container gardening. I also have three pear trees in my yard. All this on less than a half-acre. You don't have to have a lot of land to produce some of your own food.
