I didn't want to hijack Cathryn's post so thought I would make my own. Just some pics I snapped this morning.

Tomatoes and peppers. The black hoses you can see are a drip irrigation system we just installed this year.

Pete's bucket maters.... Sweet 100s.

Corn with beans in the background

Strawberry bed with English peas growing along the fence in back and some cabbages growing in the blocks.

Rattlesnake beans on a hog panel trellis. Had planted some lima beans on the near side but they didn't germinate well.

Whipoorwill peas. Don't mind the weeds, it's on my to-do list for tomorrow, lol.

[Linked Image]

Young cukes which will be trained up that metal thing in the background which is a kind of trellis deal.

Garlic patch

Trying something new this year. Planting directly into bagged soil. Will see how it works. First one is muskmelon, second is Seminole winter squash.

I don't remember if this is yellow squash or zucchini (I guess I can't keep track akajust, lol)

Baby figs

And finally, just some random flowers. The one bed is a new one... it needs more plants but I'm waiting on the coneflowers to come into the store.

Planting in bagged soil. Interesting. Is there a purpose behind doing that?

Will be interested in knowing how it works out.

Thanks

Very good idea , planting in the bagged soil. When plants like those need to be mounded anyway.

Nice gardening. Lots of good work. Love the flowers too.

Thanks for the tour, Angela. I did the "In the Bag" deal with some winter squash once several years ago. A good friend did it and loved it. All my squish croaked and didn't even grow a foot tall plant before they turned yellow and died. Hope your thumb is greener than mine!

Had a friend plant potatoes in a 55 gallon contractor bag and placed it in an old wheelbarrow. Worked like a charm. Even wheeled it around for changing sun conditions

I just did it because 1) I didn't have room in the garden for the viney things and 2) our soil sucks without a ton of amendments. The bags of soil seem to hold moisture better than just planting in the ground, AND there's no weeding, lol. I also work at Lowe's garden center and can get bags of dirt pretty cheap. We'll see how it works out.
