The lower garden is planted with cool season veggies.

The kitchen mater patch is on top of the hill behind the house just a quick ways from the bread and mayo! We have about 175 plants here.

This dogwood tree along the fence line, like all of them, have been really beautiful this spring. It has the most flowers that I believe it has ever had.

Re: Mrs. Jim's 2013 Kitchen Gardens

Nice lookin' garden's Jimmy. :D
It's just now getting time to plant the rest of the garden here, when it ever dries up enough. :roll:
I got my taters, onions, radishes, and lettuce up, then this Dogwood Winter has kept them from growing much.
Now were in the cycle of "when the ground will work tomorrow, it rains overnight", or......typical Spring. :cool:
Dogwoods are brilliantly dotting the woods and yards in full bloom here too.
Strawberries should be in bloom. Gotta get me a patch planted again. ;)

A sign of how cool we have been is that the strawberries are not yet ready, and it's gonna push it for them to be ready by Mothers' Day :!: :shock:

Beautiful pictures, Jimmy! That dogwood is really something, you have such a nice looking place in all of the pictures that you post. Thanks for sharing! On a side note - are North Carolina's round-top bread crops faring any better this year??? :lol:

Thanks for the flowers Gordon, but it's all in the angle of the shot. I have plenty of things that need attention and show it. I just had a ball joint come out of one of the Longs. Came home to get another one. We are takin' a chance and tryin' to get some early melons in today before the rain comes tonight and tomorrow.

Re: Mrs. Jim's 2013 Kitchen Gardens

Here's a couple of updated pics. The first tomato blooms are opening up. Greens in the lower garden have suffered from drowning and stunting because of so much rain. Onions have grown the slowest I can ever remember.

Your gardens look good. Mine just got dry enough to clean up yesterday.
Had to replant some beans and corn, from sitting in mud for so long.
Speaking of onions, I had about a forth of mine drowned from all the
wet weather we have had. Never had that happen before. :?

Re: Mrs. Jim's 2013 Kitchen Gardens(updated pics)

The tomato plants have really grown since I posted the pics. Hot, humid days have done it. The brakes get applied tomorrow as we are supposed to have three mornings with temps down to the mid 40s. :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:

Re: Mrs. Jim's 2013 Kitchen Gardens(updated pics)

Here's a couple of updated pics. They have never been this tall before, and they are still goin' with no end in sight :!: :eek: :eek: :eek:


You can add about another foot to the tallest plants. They are indeterminant varieties and are still growing.

There's gonna be lots of small maters there I believe. The blooms are far apart because the plants are so tall. We are getting some baseball size Early Girl maters and have gotten a couple of nice German Johnson maters.
