I don't know how to put pictures on here, but we're getting our garden ready. We have a large fenced plot that includes three 4 x 8 raised beds that are about 6 inches deep and several large pots for tomatoes. This year we're adding a 10-inch deep raised bed for root vegetables. DH finished building it and filling it with soil yesterday. We're going to plant turnips, radishes and carrots in it. We also have yellow squash, butternut squash, zucchini and tomatoes started for the other beds. This week, I planted a huge patch of okra outside of the raised beds, and we planted greens in one of the beds. We're probably also going to plant cucuzzi squash again, although they really took over the garden last year. The squashes are about the size of a baseball bat and you end up with one or two every day, so they quickly get out of hand unless you have someone to share with or you want to eat them three meals a day. For a while we had them stacked like firewood in our entry way until we finally had to throw them out, and we only planted two seeds last year. I think I might plant just one this year!!

I just transplanted some more plants in my garden yesterday. I still have 4 more rows left to work on in my garden. Then, some of my plants aren't ready to be transplanted yet.

Usually what I do to upload pics is I load them on facebook and then I copy/paste them.

Your garden sounds like it will be awesome.

I never heard of cucuzzi squash.

Already harvesting asparagus. The strawberries and blueberries have started. The apple trees are absolutely loaded with blossoms this year. Usually we get a freeze and lose them. Planted peas and potatoes already, but the peas were really old, so don't know if they will grow and it's hot already. We got 2 heirloom tomatoes from the Earth Day festival, they are in the greenhouse with some new asparagus seeds. I really need to start my San Manzano tomatoes so I can freeze some pasta sauce this year but haven't been on the ball. I have a few raised beds, one of the dogs thinks it's they are his and he smooshes the seedlings.

Is asparagus hard to grow? Any tips? Asparagus is something I would love to be able to grow.

Hopefully, next year I will be able to get me a blueberry plant. That is something that I want to start growing. I got strawberry plants and a raspberry plant. My strawberries I so need to spray some homemade pesticide on them. Something keeps getting a hold of my berries.

I got an apple tree last year. This year it is starting to get a lot of leaves. Bought a peach and plum tree this year. Can't wait for my trees to finally produce fruit.

Beautiful. I would love to plant a flower bed, but my garden has been taking up so much time that I know I don't have time to fool with a flower bed.

I tried every way I know to copy and paste the pic but it would not work for me. This is my front flower bed. My raised garden beds are almost full but I haven't taken pics of them yet.

Here are my herbs. I'm still trying to get my regular chives, oregano, and tarragon to come up from seed. The few oregano that I had got too much water.

This cilantro is starting to flower:

I decided to start some from seed this year since I have a whole lotta planting to do with the new garden space. I started this past Sunday and already have over 40 seedlings: spinach, sugar snap peas, tons of radishes, green beans, marigolds and more. I have another 72 peat pot greenhouse to plant. I wasn't sure the house was warm enough or if I had a sunny enough spot (NM springs are super windy so I don't trust it outside yet). We usually plant Mother's Day but I'm thinking we won't have much to put in the ground then. I have a 9 pk of kale to plant and some bushes and snapdragons, too. DH has been putting it off due to weather. On a happy note, my irises are starting to bloom and I have a bunch of volunteer pansies coming up in my xeriscape (rocks instead of lawn) that I will leave for now until I decide if I want to transplant or try to transplant. Some herbs survived winter. I have a huge rosemary bush now and my oregano seems to have come back 10x the size it was. I also have lavender and mint greening back, along with my multiplying garden chives/onions (unsure of actual variety since they have come back each of the 15 years we've been here, by self-seeding but this year it's nice and plentiful!).

Asparagus is easy to grow, as long as you don't have dogs digging it up constantly. Just buy the roots and you can start harvesting after a year. We don't pick any after May and then let the remaining stalks go to seed. We are trying asparagus from seed this year in a new greenhouse, but it will be 3 - 4 years before any harvesting.

My beans are coming, but still no sign of peas. Trying to use up all my old seed from the last 10 years before I buy any new seed. It's really difficult though!
