Vegetable Gardening

Vegetable GardeningIt’s March, the official day of spring is coming up very soon.  I hope my posts about my gardening is helpful to you in your own gardening projects.  As going into this new direction with my blog with my niche of Home and Garden I have so much to catch up on it feels like.

Vegetable Gardening!

Best part about growing your own Vegetable Garden is eating FRESH food! Here’s a picture of our own green beans and the lovely pork chops from the pig we bought this past year.

However, if there is something that I share and post that you want me to expand on please comment below so I can get that information on my blog and share it with others.

Vegetable gardening is something my family and my husbands family for years. My mom is known for her front yard garden.  I hear about it lots from people who know my parents. Lots of what I have comes from my family and my mother in law.

If you saw my Garden/Backyard Planning post you will see what used to be on our yard.

Before the Raised Garden beds went in last spring this was what my garden used to look like before I harvested in August.

This was a lot of work to maintain.  I love how this looks, especially with the arch from our wedding.  I updated it and painted it years ago. It got twisted up in a storm and I had to get rid of it sadly.

I mentioned in my Raised Garden Beds post about one negative and that is not being able to grow squash.  In the picture above you can see how big the plants are in this picture.

I had an amazing harvest this particular year and plan to grow another squash garden again.  If your starting out vegetable gardening this is one easy vegetable to grow.

Here’s what I grow in my Garden:

  • Pole Beans – Family Favorite – Using seeds from my grandparents.
  • Snap Peas – Our kids eat these off the vine for a snack
  • Kale – Again – seeds I get from my mom.
  • Zucchini
  • Rhubarb
  • Herbs – Maggie, Chives, Parsley, Basil etc…
  • Radishes
  • Garlic
  • White onion

I mentioned failing at things.  When we bought our place I got to take on the harvest of the previous owner.  She had LOADS of tomatoes in the greenhouse. I got, potatoes and so much more.  I was so overwhelmed with unpacking I gave LOTS away.

I worked in a vegetable farm after high school and I knew right away these tomatoes never had their suckers pinched.

Since this abundant time I have only used this as a started house.  We have changed out the soil and I need to test it to find out what’s wrong with the soil.  I can only grow stuff in pots at this point.

Again, as I embark on this new direction as a Home and Garden Blogger, please let me know what you would like me to write more about. Comment below

  1. I agree that the best part of growing a vegetable garden is eating those foods fresh from the garden. I also love opening a jar of homegrown green beans in the middle of winter, they taste so good! Your garden is beautiful. I have had little success with squash over the years, so I don’t grow it anymore as it takes up space that can be used for plants I know will grow well. Snap peas are one of our favorite things to grow, we love eating them right off the vine. I’m hoping to add garlic to the garden this year. Look forward to seeing more garden posts from you.
