Mine is up and going. We have been eating salads from the hoop house since the end of March. Onions, cabbage, beets, lettuce, radishes, dill, cucumber, and squash doing well in hoop house. Down side is the cucumbers aren't pollinating because it is inside, even though part of the end wall is folded down now that it is hot.

In the garden I have 41 tomato plants, several peppers of each variety; cubanelle, thai hot, basque, pablano, Hungarian hot wax. I have cabbage, 2 rows beans, 5 rows sweet corn, 5 rows field corn, a row of kale, row of beets, row of cucumbers, yellow squash, spaghetti squash, radishes, a couple lettuce beds about 3 weeks apart, dill, basil, three varieties of pumpkins, and I think that is about it.

Sounds like a farm, doh! Compared to mine anyway.

Weíve made our planter garden bigger each year. Itís rewarding and therapeutic.

I say definitely do it.
Hit me up for drip-irrigation tech. Or just swing over some time and check out our back yard.

I planted horse radish last year, dug it up end of season and transplanted to a raised bed.. I guess 2 little roots broke off in the soil where it was planted and now I have more horse radish growing.. The one that was transplanted is about 2-1/2ft tall so I'm guessing the tap root is all of 3ft down

So if you want some lemme know.. I also have a bunch of spinach i let go to seed so I wanna try to see if I waited long enough to let it dry. I guess I'll find out in a few weeks

i guess we planted the store-bought starters ~5-6 wks ago.


Cucumbers are coming in strong; didnt see the first one (not pictured) til it was like the size of an eggplant, woman fed it to the chickens.



A few Jalapenos ready for a recipe:




never seen tomatoes grow in a big bunch like grapes before:





Bananna peppers and some chili peppers are pretty far behind the jalapeno progress. never grown them before- are they routinely slow developers?

A big hail storm hammered the broad leaf stuff pretty good on friday- yellow squash & cucumber but they seem to be pulling through ok.

I don't garden.

but I facilitate my mother in law.
asparagus is ridiculous right now.
but pretty much nothing else has been planted other than tomatos and peppers. It's been far too wet.

but I upgraded from walk behind tiller to drive on the tractor and pull pTO levers today.
nobody ever needs to till with a gravely.

does anyone want to buy a gravely with a bunch of attachments?

It finally stopped snowing here. I have been helping my grandparents (84 y/o) get their garden prepped and the irrigation working. It looks like they are doing some tomatoes and some sweet corn for sure, we will see what else they decide to plant. I am just the labor.

have you got some backyard/pirate style drip irrigation tech? next year i'd like to get something together for our boxes and just leave the pots for the hand watering.

added bonus if you can explain to a monkey how the timer things work so that I can be gone for a week or two over summer without near full loss the one time it doesn't rain in western Washington

passively thinking about it, seems like some ~1/2" pvc with 'a bunch' of small drill holes going around it and ~6" buried would function

I added a ďgarden zoneĒ to my existing irrigation system. I then used basic drip irrigation parts from my local Loweís store. Itís all super cheap and easy. Itís mostly all snap-lock pieces. The flexible lines lay on top of the dirt and feed each plant.
Like you said, itís easy to water while gone. I just set the timer on my control box.
Even without a true irrigation system, you can still easily hook up a small timer valve to a garden hose fed system.

I've not had any luck with my strawberries. The plant is doing well (even survived a Texas summer being neglected) and it producted a few fruit but they all either rotted on the ground or got eaten by bugs. I think one problem is it is just in a big pot, I'm thinking of replanting into smaller, hanging type pots

These were from a deck railing. They fruited quicker than my in ground plants. Probably have 80 ish in ground plants should start to ripen in about 2 weeks. Then some layer 4 different varieties.

There was some info in one of the previous garden threads

DigIt Irrigation

basic kit
Homo Depot

or from Amazon

Amazon
Easy to put together, easily scale-able, easy to modify

Just set up the wife's new garden, reusing the DigIt stuff we had. Two zones, run off timers on water tanks, all gravity fed - so the drip tube and drip dispensers work, but sprayers do not. You need about 4 foot of head height to have a gravity only system, more is better.

Then have a spray system over the whole garden connected to the pressure water system (on a well and prefer using tanked water for the garden, but the sprayers are only used about 10 mins a day max.)

Works awesome, I bet I have less than a couple hundred into everything (not including the water tanks), and a lot less brain damage than trying to piece some system out of PVC, probably cheaper too. Home Depot has all the individual parts if you want something totally custom but the kits are a good place to start.

Have left plants totally un-managed for as much as two weeks when I was travelling. I do replace the 9V batteries in the timers each season, and remove the old ones when I purge the system at first snow fall

Only recommendation - have separate systems for water and nutrients, the drip systems and sprayer nozzles WILL get clogged if you try to force nutrients through them. I have a separate nutrient tank, with a stand alone system on a timer, and feed the plants through the 1/4" tubing, no sprayers needed. Obviously only needed for a few minutes per day, compared to the irrigation system which currently is on for 1 hour every 6 hours.

Thanks to whoever posted in the original garden thread
