The Garden I Left Behind
This forum about gardening really makes me miss the garden that I left behind when I sold my home after 13 years of TLC.

Here is a link to the pics of that beautiful garden and yard.

Be patient letting it load up. Takes just a few seconds more than most.

Sad deal there Ralph but hopefully by this time next year you will be growing another fine garden at your new place.

Awesome garden. I just need to plow up more area and separate the plants more. I just harvested my butternut squash and replanted for some more fall crop.

I've got a question for you Gregg, how do you know when your butternut squash are ready to be harvested? I think some of mine are close but wasn't sure if there was a full proof way of telling.

i wait till the green lines disappear from squash. and turn a nice yellow. one i picked before lines were gone just wasn't ready. i did plant them again last week in hopes of a fall crop for them. With my hand banged up ill wait on the rest of fall crop. spinach and ill try beets one more time. Crazy

Mine are different. Yellow with a crooked neck. Starts out green then yellow with green stripes. stripes disappear i pick them or vine drys up. Butternut squash I guess. . Blossom end rot has hit my garden hard as half my tomato, All red peppers have them. Strangely all yellow peppers have been perfect. Guess it's all yellow next year.

Yea, I'm not sure what the deal is on that Blossom end rot, for my bell peppers, I get it on the first peppers but later it goes away and it's not a problem. Could be like that article says, that the soil is wetter in the Spring but later when the soil is drier it isn't a problem.Unsure

Yes you can grow a another fine garden at your new place too. My cousin has too faced similar situation when he shifted to new city. But after an year, he was successful in growing the new garden of both vegetables and blossoming flowers too. I was really impressed by the idea of patio chairs as it was giving an amazing look to the whole environment. I am thinking to get a set of patio chairs for my garden too.
