2017 Gardens

Recommended Posts

Broke the garden open today with the 3 point cultivator acting as a chisel, let it dry and ran my finisher over it a few times, it's ready to plant!

I love the job that contraption does! It takes a lot to get the soil worked up like you've done there, should make for a great crop.

@Adams94 Next time you think of it, will you flip that finisher over and get a few good pics from all sides. I'd like to see the teeth setup you mentioned.

 

No chance for garden work here. Can't walk through the yard without squishy squishy sounds and wet shoes.  But here's my tilling rig....

Too wet to work here. 2 weeks ago it was dry enough to plow my big garden. I like spring plowing, really controls the weeds. Unfortunately, I tried to work a piece behind my little woods and hooked a large root. The D-250 didn't give up and neither did the root. The plow had to.  I bent the main beam and twisted the moldboard almost straight sideways. I patched it up so at least we are ready for when it dries up. I planted the straw bale Potatoes last Monday night and have had 2 straight days of rain since. The bales should get wet enough. I guess we will see if this experiment works. Started Tomatos and peppers 3 weeks ago and they are out in the greenhouse. I also started pie pumpkins and some summer squash as well. My corn seed should be here by Friday. So, we should be set to hit it when it is time. I will be planting Onion sets and Peas  this weekend if it is dry enough.

Ooo I like your planter, love one of those in the barn, I use an Earthway great for all the bigger seeds. I'll be putting in sweet corn and sunflowers soon.  :handgestures-thumbupright:

Early potatoes are growing fast, I will use my :wh:  discs to earth them up, just use 2 gangs and set them for drawing soil, makes the job so easy.  :thumbs:

We are just coming off a wet/cool spell. Rained 13 out of 15 days so just now able to get back in the garden to plant the tomatoes and peppers. Potatoes and onions are doing great and it looks like another banner year for the horseradish!

Forgot the potato pics, already starting to flower.

And the horseradish, plant it once and it will last a lifetime! But it can get out of control as well.

I think I just ran across some info on who made that attachment. It is a Viking Roller Blade, quite an interesting piece of equipment with all of the parts in place. Here is a photo of one with the seeder attached

Nice potato crop Farmer!  I lost about 20% of mine due to the excess rain and cold here at the end of March, the rest however have done very well. Should be digging some by the end of the month. Thanks for the pics!

Longest day picture update...

Potatoes nearest the camera, then sunflowers, sweet corn, a gap for winter greens,  then butternut squash. 

The other side of the wind break are beans, onions and garlic. I'll update with another pic in a few weeks.  B):)

Farmer, that is a fantastic garden you have there. Mine started out good but we are now 12" of rain above normal for the summer and consequently the weeds have run amok due to the inability to cultivate.

Sorry to hear about your weather, too much rain over a period (especially 'summer') can be a real downer.   :angry-banghead:

Once the rain started things tanked pretty quickly, it's impossible to work wet ground as you know. But, it's like my Dad said, "there's always next year". Being in my late 60's I can only hope there is a next year:) The good thing is that the peppers and onions are thriving in spite of all the precipitation.
