Bed 4 Slide Show

***spaghetina, Thanks for reading my blog.***

Bed 4 Harvest so far...

Lettuce 6 1/2 pounds

Bush Beans 2 pounds

Spinach 6.3 oz's

Carrots 2.3 oz's This was a bit of a bust but I am trying again. I will grow carrots!

Round Zucchini 4 pounds

Onions 4 1/2 pound

Garlic 1.4 oz's Didn't do so well with the garlic. I have planted more to over winter in bed 2. So far so good.

Spaghetti Squash 10 pounds. I still have 13 squash to harvest. This should take me over the 100 pound mark for this season.

Currently growing in bed 4

The potato beds pulled in 4.7 pounds of early potatoes. I can't complain. I didn't think I would get any. I just placed my order for seed potatoes for 2010. They will arrive the first week of January for a mid month planting. I can't wait.

The potted raspberries have given me 2.8 pounds.

So overall this has been a successful growing season for me. Remember I came into this not knowing a thing about vegetable gardening. But with the help of my family, many of my readers, and the will to make it happen, I can now say I'm a vegetable gardener.

I think my biggest challenge for next season will be the pests. I was lucky this year but I'm sure they have found my garden and are safely tucked away in the soil for a long winters nap. Come Spring they are going to be really hungry. I'll be ready for them.

If you are thinking about putting in a vegetable garden... Go for it. You will find it very rewarding to know you can provide healthy foods for you and your family.


  1. Yep, you're a gardener now! Pests aren't much of a problem if you find them upon initial arrival to the area.

  2. EG,
    I having found 3 green loopers this week. One was big and trying to burying it's self in bed 2 and the other 2 just little things were feasting on the brussels sprouts. So now I have been on patrol.

  3. BT will take care of those loopers for ya. A good going-over everyday is the way I deal with most things, but it takes alot of time, of course.
