A novice gardener's perspective...

It is time to take a break from an entire blog on the weather forecasts for the week. But instead this blog is going to be on my take as a novice vegetable gardener. And yes I could not help myself, as there will be a little paragraph on the short-term weather forecast.

I think weather/photography/gardening all go hand-in-hand. All of us on the site all seem to have similar interests with a main similar interest of the love of weather. Recently due to rising food prices, rising fuel prices, rising temperatures (thanks to global warming) I decided to really start my own vegetable garden. Now for the past two years before I had just taken a little plot to plant some bean seeds. The faired very well with a bountiful crop each year. I guess I could call myself the bean expert after several years of growing them dealing with problems such as hailstones that destroyed half of the crop. But this year I had an idea that developed of a large vegetable garden. Vegetable gardens have an endless list of advantages that come out of them. Helping the environment, eating healthier due to organic foods, and saving a little bit on food costs are just to name a few of the advantages. Many of the avid readers of my blog are full fledge gardeners whom I consider experts and if I need help I ask them. But I wanted a blog to provide my perspective on vegetable gardening this year. So in this blog I will talk about some of the methods I used so far this year to have a bountiful vegetable and fruit crop. Keep in mind this is my first year and I probably am doing a lot of things wrong, lol. So let me start off in the early spring.

Spring Onions- Coming from a family with a love of onions I just had to grow the ever-popular scallions. I bought a pack of bulbs with about 50 in them and put them in the ground in mid-late March. No I did not prepare the ground, but just took an empty plot on the side of my house where no perennials come up in the late spring. I put the bulbs several inches down in the half-frozen soil. And by the end of March I was lucky enough to see all of the bulbs have come up. Only to be followed by an inch of snow in late March, the onions still faired well and continued to grow. What surprised me most about onions is how long it takes for them to get ready to pick. Them seemed to sprout very quickly but I took a while for them to become large enough to pick and eat. Once they were ready I picked about 10 a week for a while and they tasted wonderful. Next year I plan to plant even more!

Lettuce- I only planted a measly 5 lettuce plants all of the same variety. The survived pretty well threw some of the cold spells in early May. I did get plenty of lettuce crops that always filled for a big bowl of salad to go along with dinner. The lettuce I planted had a slight bitter taste but overall it was wonderful. Next year I want to plant more different varieties of lettuce. Even this fall I want to plant some more lettuce.

Blueberry Bush- I was so excited to get blueberry bushes. I had to buy two so they could cross-pollinate and make a large bountiful crop. By the end of May the bushes had grown much larger and had gotten lots of flowers. The flowers then turn into the blueberries by the end of June. But a lot of the flowers fell off before they had a chance to get into the berries. Now here in Mid June the berries are ripening and getting ready for picking in a week or two. It looks like there are about 25 berries to pick. O well, I did some research and the first year with blueberry bushes usually produce the smallest crop. I cannot wait to next year. But I might have to transplant them, as they are getting a little tight next to the other plants.


First Round of Peas- I planted two packs of pea seeds in my older garden. I also put in about 6 stakes to lets the peas wrap around them as they grow on vines. But for some reason I think I planted the seeds to close together and most of the plant is now dying from bottom to top. Still though there are flowers on the plant, but still no peas to be seen.


Tomato- Well I decided back in March I wanted to expand my vegetable garden with two larger plots of land. I did some research and found that raised bed gardens seem to work very well. I then built two 6ft x 2ft boxes with ten-inch walls. I then filled the boxes with several mixtures of soils including peat moss, hummus, manure, woods soil, and garden soil. In total I had to buy 21 bags of soil which keep in mind was quite costly. But next year I will not have to do this again so it was pretty much a once in done thing. Also forgot to add I put a weed control, but yet water seeping mat at the bottom of the boxes. A few days I later I went out to the local nursery and bought two Roma tomato plants. They first grew extremely slowly, but now they are really taking off. In total I have about 26 tomatoes continuing to grow and there are still more flowers ready to yield more tomatoes.


Herbs- I decided to plant three herb plants that I would use the most. I planted the basil next to the tomato plants and then a garlic chive and parsley plants located below the basil plant. At first the herbs were doing great, but then the long cold spell in May hit and my basil plant, well, died. In June I continue to pick herbs almost every day to spice up some of our dinners. The parsley plant grows like wild and has a bush like appeal. The chive plant is like an ornamental grass type plant and grows a little more slowly than the parsley. The chives do have a wonderful flavor though. As I was putting in a large new shade garden I was putting stepping stones for a pathway and I want to have steppable plants in between a few of the stepping stones. But instead of buying the expensive steppable plants, I decided to buy some herb plants. I bought one oregano plant and two thyme plants. I have yet to pick these though as herbs due to their slow growth in the shade, which was expected.


Zucchini- Well I decided put in some zucchini plants due to they taste great on the grill. The plants were very small when I bought them and only around 3inches tall. I bought four of them. But then shortly they grew like wild and before I knew it they were spilling out over the raised bed boxes. Then they grew flowers and before I knew it there were small zucchinis growing. Now I think I have counted 18 zucchini with I believe more to come. I guess I will be giving a lot away.


Radish- If you’re looking for an easy plant to grow, these are it. They grew like hotcakes and I planted more than I knew what to do with. I gave many radishes away and still I have more cutup in my refrigerator. I pulled the rest of the radishes out when they looked liked they were not growing anymore and moved two cucumber plants in their spot.

Cucumber- Well these plants have been a plague in my side. I planted two in the beginning but then they died right away from the crazy cold spell mentioned earlier in May. Then for a while I did not get anymore. But then I decided to pick up two more cucumber plants at the local nursery and placed them where the radishes were. So far they are very slow to grow and only about 8inches tall. I do have the plant staked. My neighbor's cucumber plant though is growing huge into a large vine.


Carrot- I planted three rows of carrot seeds spaced enough for room to grow. One thing I noticed is these carrots are taking an awful long time to grow, but now they are quite tall. I pulled on yesterday to see how it was coming along and from what I can tell the carrot by the root is beginning to grow too. Carrots are one of my favorite vegetables. I cannot wait to pick some of them.


Second Round of Peas- After a disastrous round with the first pea plants I decided to try to grow them again in my new vegetable garden. I planted three rows of seeds and again placed two stakes in each row. The seeds sprouted quickly and now there are tons of peas on the plant. This pea plant is doing much better than my original and I should have quite a bit of peas for picking, too many to count. I think with the first plant that the peas were just to crowded to give way for growing.


Bean- I am not too big of a fan of beans, but anyway I decided to grow them figuring I would give some of them away like years before. I planted the bean seeds in the new garden and like usual they sprouted quickly. But one thing different from other years is the bean plants are quite taller than years before. Currently there are many small beans growing and will be reading for picking shortly.


Watermelon- In my old, but still used other vegetable garden I had some room after the lettuce plants died from the heat wave to put some watermelon plants which I grew from seeds. It is taking a while for a lot of growth with the plants, but now they seem to be getting larger each day.


Pepper- Last night I was looking at the vegetable garden and one thing was missing. It was pepper plants. So I ran out to the nursery and bought two bell pepper plants to fill in an area in the old vegetable garden. The plants seem healthy and I added a stake to each plant for support.


I must say I am proud of my little vegetable garden. It surely is quite large and bountiful for the little bit of plants I have. I look forward to waking up each day to see what plants might have grown from the night before. I use my rain barrel to water the vegetables every day, which seems to keep the plants even healthier. So far I have no problems with pests, which I am pleased with. I wrote up this blog to share the experiences I have had with my first year of vegetable gardening and I recommend everyone to have a little one as it is easy and fun to watch the plants grow. Below I will post some pictures of my vegetable garden. Have a wonderful day!!! But first my short term forecast.

Short term forecast (Friday)Updated- Sorry for the late forecast discussion. For Friday looks pretty quiet across the state of Pennsylvania as an upper level trough slowly departs from the region. For the morning hours patchy fog could be an issue in some of the favored locales, but overall visibility should not be too low and only around 5miles. A weak shortwave will rotate acround the mainstream of the trough and will provide a few rain showers in northwestern Pennsylvania and over the rest of the region only provide clouds. But a weak upper level low in southern Ohio combined with low convective temperatures may spark a few thunderstorms across southern Pennsylvania today. Any storms are capable of gusty winds and small hail. An isolated storm may approach severe limits. Highs will be slightly warming and into the upper 60s to upper 70s across the state with cloudy intervals throughout the day. Winds will be 5-10mph out of the WNW becoming calm by dusk. Looking ahead real quick appears some shower/thunderstorm chances are ahead with slight risks of severe weather Saturday through Monday. I will have more on that in a new blog probably coming out late Saturday. For now have a wonderful Friday!!!

Well thats some good news. If they take, I may dig them all up and replant.

Here are some pictures. The first one is of cucumbers. There are several plants in one group. Do I need to thin them now?img src="Photobucket" alt="" />

Same question for watermelons.

Here us one of the onions.

And can somebody tell me if my brussel sprouts are growing properly. When do they start producing something?

Good morning all. lol. cchamp, in answer to staking tomatoes, I always stake cherry tomatoes and slicing tomatoes, which are indeterminate. Canning tomatoes, which are determinate, can be left unstaked, but would then need a thick layer of hay or straw mulch under them. Tomatoes should not come in contact with bare soil. they will rot.

Determinate and indeterminate? Deteminate means the tomato plant only grows so big and will deliver most of its crop within a 2 week period. These are usually canning tomatoes so that is a good thing if you're trying to put up some spaghetti sauce. Romas are the traditional canning variety.

Indeterminate tomatoes do not stop growing, in theory of course, cause cold weather or disease will eventually get them. A good example is cherry tomatoes. I've had them well over 5' before the cold nights started their demise. Slicing tomatoes are usually in this category, of which big boys, beefsteaks and, my favorite, brandywines are prime examples.

And individual onion plants should always be planted seperately and, yes, it's too late to replant them. For most nothern varieties, the shortening of the days is what triggers them to bulb.

Pick your brocolli when it looks like the bunches in the supermarket. Waiting will allow the bunch to flower, which is a very pretty yellow and the bees will like them. The plants should then start sending off sideshoots which look like tiny brocolli heads and are totally usable. I usually get as much if not more brocolli from the side shoots as from the main heads.

Brussel sprouts - picking the lower leaves makes for easier harvesting. And if I remember right, recommended. On the rest of the veggies, don't pick the leaves.

And I've rambled on too long!

***I am heading up through northern Pennsylvania today. Hopefully I will be able to get the severe weather blog out tonight. Today there is a threat of severe weather in western Pennsylvania. But I do not see it being too widespread. Sunday a 30% chance of severe weather indicated by SPC for central Pennsylvania. And Monday eastern Pennsylvania a 15% risk by the SPC. Stay tuned for more updates this evening. Watch out in western Pennsylvania for hail and gusty winds. Stay tuned to your NOAA weather radio and local media centers throughout the day.

Champ,

Yep, you guessed it.

They're supossed to be planted individually about 4 inches apart in a row.

You might end up with some odd shaped conglomeration of an onion or something with all of them being in one hole. I want a pic of that when you dig it up in the fall.

Gardening question for anyone who may know.

I planted onions in april. I bought them from my nursery in those little 6 packs. Should I have seperated each one from the several that were in a pack? I planted them in one hole. Now I am thinking I goofed and should have seperated them all, so instead of having 6 plantings I should have many more. Any thoughts here would be very helpful. Thanks

Champ,

You should pick broccoli when the buds begin to swell some. Don't let them stay too long otherwise they'll flower and be useless.

Only pick off leaves on your plants if you notice signs of any fungus or disease. Black spots, powdery mildew. any of that stuff.

I'm not a big gardener. I think weather photoghraphy and nature go hand and hand, just kind of broadning what you said. I would much rather walk through the woods and find a wild berry bush.

cchamp- i think it's advisable to keep the lower leaves on unless they look like they're dying. Also, the benefit of staking tomatoes is that you want to keep the fruits off the ground. If they come in contact with the ground, they will rot and be susceptible to insects and other critters. Also, I found this online:
There are several advantages to staking tomatoes. Since the plants grow upward rather than outward, they are forced to produce more pounds of tomatoes from a given area of ground than unstaked plants. The fruits of a staked tomato plant ripen earlier and are larger (though fewer) than fruits of the same variety trained to a sprawling habit.

To the almighty Gardener (SULLY)- or anyone who may know the anwers!

1- When do I pick the brocolli? And does more grow or does the plant only produce the one veggie?

2-Tomatos, broc., brussel sprouts. Should I pick the lower leaves/stems to help extra nutrients get to veggies?

3-If I didnt stake the tomato plants, would they still be OK? It seems like some plants want to grow all over.

Any answers to these questions would be very helpful. Thank you.

do you plant anything in mid to late summer? if so what?


You can start broccoli from seed now and you'll have some by mid September.

Beets planted between now and july 10 will be ready by September 1-25.

Spinach planted now will be ready beginning in late july (baby leaves for salad) right up into early september.

Romaine lettuce is also good to plant now because it's heat tolerant. You can also plant red leaf in july for late september harvest and green leaf/iceberg in mid August for mid to late October harvest. Be sure to plant the lettuce in a spot that gets shade until at least 11 in the morning or that begins getting shade at 2-3 in the afternoon. Same with spinach unless you get a heat tolerant kind.


If you like Chard or collards you can start those in early August for harvest in October and november.

Green onion/scallions planted now will also be ready by fall.

If you're looking to be really ambitious you can make a space for parsnips and leave them in the ground during the winter to uproot early in the spring when the ground thaws. Parsnips are delicious!

Blizz, they always say that marigolds keep the pests away. I don't have too many problems with pests usually. Now rabbits were a big problem last year. they ate the tops of the carrots, the parsley, beet leaves and the lettuce. this year i put up the fence and haven't had a problem as of yet. i don't think the marigolds keep out the rabbits or other rodents. and i have tons of rabbits running around my yard. besides marigolds doing a service, they also get nice and big in the summer. add some good color to the garden.

TheRasberryPatch- Just marvelous garden! Thanks so much for sharing your photos. I see you have marigolds throughout parts of your garden. I heard that keeps the rabbits away. Is this true? Last year I planted a bed of marigolds in front of my bean crop and the beans did not suffer at all from the rabbits. Also I love how everything is in nice rows with them in raised soil.

sullivanweather- Thankyou for posting your pictures! And yes my peas are overcrowded definitely. Is there anything I can do now or is it too late. Absolutely wonderful looking vegetable garden and look at all the broccoli. That corn bed is huge. I do not have near enough room for corn. Is there anything I can plant in the fall to get another session of cool season crops?

cchamp6- For New England I typically go with the July-August time period for severe weather. Here in Pennsylvania it usually is the worst from late June to late July.

jthal57- Gardening is a big stress reliever.

sully - nice garden. lots of everything there. love the fresh brocolli. silver queen is so good. only place i can find that is maryland and south. silver queen is so crunchy.

cchamp - my potato patch assures me of eating until at least thanksgiving as long as i keep them cool and dry.
my garden has a couple of bare spots. i wanted more onions, ut couldn't find them at the beginning of May. i meant to plant beets, but forgot. forgot to plant garlic last fall.

a question for gardeners. do you plant anything in mid to late summer? if so what? it would be nice to have something at the end of September.

Figures, Sully has to go and out do everyone. LOL.

TRP, real nice as well. Looks like everyone is going to be eating some nice fresh veggies all summer long.

Blizz, I have had hail twice this year already. That is hail bigger than pea size. Alot of storms since early spring.

When would the peak time for storms be? July?

Blizz,

I was noticing that your peas look very overcrowded. That could be a reason for the lack of production. Too much competition between the individual plants.

Other than that everything looks great! You should be getting some tomatoes by July 20 judging by their size now.

Pics of my garden
Potato Patch

Vegetable Garden

Carrots and Buttercrunch. Sage is above Carrots

Celery and Zuchini

Peppers, the one in the back is Tabasco. Come this summer the peppers will be orange, red and yellow. Just pulled up radishes yesterday all around the peppers. They should take off, now.

Pickling Cucumbers. Daughter pulled up the one in the front yesterday thinking it was radish.

Tomatoes & Asparagus

White Spanish Onions

Sugar Snaps Used to be there

Broccoli just getting started. Lettuce. Spearmint. Peppermint in the pots. Parsley is up above the basil. As you can see it likes to take over.

dragonflyF15- I love adding fresh veggies as a nice little side dish for dinner. Also thanks for stopping by.

GardenGrrl- My basil plants have caused many problems this year as it is very "touchy". I guess the like your warmer climate better. Thanks for stopping by.

TheRasberryPatch- I have never been to the Rehobeth boardwalk.

JDinWPA- Wow thats cold. I got to 47degrees last night and that might be a new record low. I have to do a little research.

i have basil and sage, but never really use them. don't see too many things that call for them and i don't make pesto. i might have to try fresh sage when i make dressing for a bird.
i also, have two mints and definitely put them in a pot. growing up we had a mint in our yard and it was pretty much kept at bay. didn't see it take over like you read. it is great in a tall glass of cold water. we used to put it in our coolers filled with water and take it to the park where we would play baseball all afternoon.

Oh all of you have gorgeous vegetable gardens!
I don't know how basil does up in you area but down here (Texas) just sprinkle some seeds and it grows. That should save you a few bucks instead of buying plants from the store.
Also, any of the mints should be in their own pot. They will take over otherwise.
Really enjoy you garden pictures.
Happy Gardening!
