Newbie here. Two years ago I moved into a new house and
for the first time in a long time, I have room for a garden.
So this summer I planted a garden just to see how things
would work out. Well, we didn't get steller results. But we
got something. Based on the results of or first season,
I have a bunch of questions.
For those who are currious; I planted:
Corn: The sqirrles ate about half the corn seeds out of the
ground before they could sprout. The stalks never got higher
than about 5 feet and the ears were very small. I had one
ear that had fully developed kernls but the ear was only a
few inches long.
Tomatoes: 4 types, All did reasonable well.
Zuchinni (harvested 4 vegitables), Egg plant (3), Yellow
crookneck (3), PattiPans (about 12), Lemon cuces (about 12).
Sweet pea pods and Bush beans (both did well)
2 kind of Lettuce (continuous crop, not too big leaves.)
Radishes and carrots (did not develop well).
Strawberries: These just showed up. Squirrls ended eating the
berries before I could pick them.
Currently I have all the leaves from the yard raked into the garden
to provide weed control.
I think I'll ask my questions indiviually.
