Not much happening in the garden right now. Two inches of new snow fell on the garden 2 days ago, but it had all melted [...]
My fall garden was very successful this year. I just finished harvesting the last of the cabbage and brussels sprouts on December 6th and 7th. Temperatures here in Central Indiana were above normal for the month of November, which probably helped the fall garden produce more over a longer period. The low temperatures over the [...]
My cold frame has been up for about one week, but I do not have any plants in it as of yet. I like to get the cold frame put up before any plants are moved into it to allow time for the containers of water to warm up a little. This also allows me [...]
My Spring 2011 seed orders were placed on February 2nd. The weather here has been absolutely dreadful. I have never seen an ice build up like this before. There is at least 4 inches of hard packed ice covering everything. It has also turned extremely cold. It got down to zero degrees this morning. The [...]
Since my garden is currently in Ole Man Winter’s frozen grip, there is not much to report except that now is a good time to get your seeds and supplies ordered for the upcoming gardening season. If you procrastinate, you might not get the seeds you want.
Some of you have asked to see more posting [...]
Happy New Year!! Sorry for the long time between post. The weather this past December was very cold and snowy in Central Indiana. I was able to get one last small harvest of brussels sprouts before the really cold weather set in. The plants are still in the ground, but have since turned brown and [...]
Sorry for the long time between posts. A lot has changed in the garden since the end of October. As of this writing, there is a light dusting of snow on the ground and it is 28 degrees outside (burrrr!!). Needless to say, the fall harvest is nearly complete. About one week ago I finished [...]
The weather here in Central Indiana so far this spring has been fabulous. The temperatures have been in the 70′s and 80′s over the past 5 days or so with dry conditions. The red bud trees are now in full bloom. It is quite a bit cooler today, with a frost/freeze expected tonight. With all [...]
My cold frame was put up over a small portion of one of the garden beds last Sunday, February 20th. I plan on starting some lettuce seeds in 2 more days, depending on the weather. If the weather forecast continues to look very cold into the latter part of next week, I might hold off [...]
I ordered all of the extra seeds I need for this year’s garden a few days ago. Now the agonizing wait for warmer weather starts. I am really looking forward to spring this year!! I will be putting up the cold frame in a few weeks and as long as the weather is not too cold, [...]
