Last night I spent a good part of the evening drawing up my garden plan. I got out all my books and all my seeds and tried to put something together a bit different than last year.
|Most people work at the table I chose the love seat..lol|
I think I am happy with it, but before I make a nice copy, scan it and post it I have a few things I need to figure out first. I am going to look online for the answers to my questions below, however if anyone has any suggestions or answers I would love to hear them too!
Okay so this is what I need to figure out.
How much room do sweet potatoes take up? I was able to find some yesterday even though I am pretty sure they are yams and everything I have read says that yams and sweet potatoes are not the same thing...who knows maybe they were all wrong...lol
Has anyone successfully grown spaghetti squash on trellises? What do you do when they start to get too big?
Do butternut squash take up a lot of room? Should I bother planting acorn squash?
Can you grow tomatoes and cucumbers next to each other? I haven’t seen anything that says no, but nothing that says yes either...lol
Is it safe to plant tomatoes in the same area that had blight 2 years ago?
Is it worth it to try and grow artichokes from seed or am I better off trying to find already started plants at the greenhouse
I also have a portion of the garden that nothing grows in. The trees leave it in it the shade most of the day, it’s usually wet and the chick weed loves that area. I have tried planting a few different things there in the past, but nothing really takes. Any suggestions?
So basically I have A LOT of questions that I still need to find answers for..LOL
In other news I went out and bought some more seed starting containers, soil, 6 tier a storage rack and growing bulbs. I still have to find the light fixtures that will hold the bulbs now. You would think if you sell the bulbs you would sell the fixtures that use that size bulbs.....but no. We hit three stores yesterday and will try the little store in town today. I would like to get things started tomorrow at the latest so we may be borrowing my mother in laws fire starters instead! Not that they really start fires, but they are old
Wish me luck!
