Spring has arrived.
Beans are coming up, Bibb lettuce and spinach are taking off as well. Just put tomatoes and peppers in today. Bok choy just popping through. Eating aspericus for last two weeks. Baby chicks are getting big . Love it. Cool

Still have 6" of snow on my garden plot. Won't even plant peas/onions for another few weeks.

Awesome Gregg, what have your night time temps been there, since you started planting?
We are a long ways here from getting our garden going this year, still getting overnight temps in the high 30's and low 40's.
How many chicks do you raise per year?

Night time temps have been around 50-55. Air in mid 70's . I decided to try chickens this year, first time. Only four hens. I have a small coop.Tried to attach pic but not working.

I fixed it for you, just unchecked the inline box. Looks like you have plenty of land there for a garden and chickens. Garden is looking good. With overnight temps that warm, I can see why it's growing so well.

Picked the last of the Bibb lettuce and my first picking of string beans. Beets are ready, finally got 10 to grow, but no parsnips. Frown watermelon coming up along with melons,cakes and winter squash. Chicks are bigger now and had to add a dining room and a bigger roost and walking yard to the pre-made coop.

I have 4 hens. I won't see any eggs till at least end of Aug. But they are cool to have around. Almost at the end of the Bok Choi, still picking beans. I did lose a pepper plant. Just shriveled up. Do they get vine Borers?? Some pics of garden close to the house , bean garden in back 3 weeks adjoined the chickens.Tried to upload pics. says they are but don't see them on post. Tongue

You can't check the inline box unless you follow the full procedure, I fixed it for you. I've never heard of vine Borers. The only problem I've had with my bell pepper plants is, they will at times get these brown spots on them but i can't say I've ever had one shriveled up. Great looking garden and chicken coop, nice boat too.. Were those chicks this year? If so they sure have grown.
