Talking Vegetable Gardens






The Top photo is about 4 weeks, and the the Two are about Three Months later

Potatoes,Cauliflowers,Cabbage, Brocolli,Radishes Parsnip,Peas, Lettuce

Spuds are the easiest to look after as well as the Gourmet Lettuce ,Pumpkin




Like This, they don't take up much room nice as well,just pick the leafs when you want them beats the supermarket shit any day

If i had my way ,I'd have the whole back section in a Vege Garden but Alas I'm not allowed cause My Boss sais So

Last season i Had Trouble with Dusted Spuds, and Seedlings that won't Grow just
Dust what a waste

These Monsanto Bastards if they had there own way would put a stop to having your own Vege Gardens You would have to buy the seeds Veges that don't Seed

Its looking good! I am impressed! Keep up the good work and remember to share

I am thinking of expanding my own a bit and try growing some corn. Also, I just started some wildflowers as they are good for drawing bees and butterflies and stuff. Plus, ofcourse they are lovely to look at as well and they add colour.

Great job!
That's a good size plot you got there.
Are you 100% organic?
I started to grow veg about 3 years ago now I only have a small plot but its all good practice for when TSHTF.
I use beer traps for the slug but wanted to try using oats in the green house but I now have a little mouse friend so it wont be a good idea.

It's looking really nice...well done! My greenhouse is bursting at the seams...just need to wait for it to get a bit warmer so I can transfer the plants outside. I'll have to take some pics and get them posted up.

Happy harvests all round me thinks

Oh and yeh....FUCK MONSANTO

I love to hear some people say "oh we have to do something!", you know what? you are doing the best thing you can, taking the food you live on into your own hands, at least you know what's going into it, good for you!

Just started growing herbs, beans, peas, peppers and strawberries myself, gives an awesome lift to one's sense of doing something good that doesn't involve hatred or fighting of any kind and ten times more rewarding too.

You plot looks outstanding btw, something for me to aspire to.

Edit : Oh I nearly forgot

Has anyone tried putting seeds in their mouth before planting? I read on another forum that someone got different tasting and shaped dandelion leaves for each family members plants. Give it a try and let us know what happens:

Ducks and geese do really well, even a few hours a day is enough.
