2022 garden season

Postby SONNY » Sat Jan 15, 2022 5:27 pm

Time to start the 2022 garden thread! Anybody have plans for this year yet? Post about your favorite varieties, equipment, methods that work for you, etc.! All sizes are welcome too! If you do pots on the porch, raised beds, regular flat ground,---all are welcome here!

We have a 30 bunch of onion plants and 500 sweet potato plants on order and paid for. We have a few saved seeds and will order a few other seeds to fill in with.
Not sure how much of the 4.5 acres we can do this year, but plan to do most of it since we found the Midwest Disaster Food Bank will take everything and whatever amount we want to send them.
We donate veggies to whoever wants some,--no questions asked! --- We always share whatever we grow!
Midwest sends food all over and run 5 semis to keep food on the move.

EVERYONE is welcome, so post away! Thanks!

I don't even want to think about it.....

Old Ugly the Super A is in the shop getting a touch control rebuild. That's about as far as I've gotten so far with garden failure 2022.....

Our garden is frozen, hard as a rock, and soon to be covered with up to a foot of snow. No garden dreaming here yet. :D

I prefer to be on the slight deficit side when it comes to rainfall!

I would happily trade some of our rainfall to a place that needs it for some dry days in return!

2021 was a bust, waste of money. Only decent crop was the jalapenos, which I traded for some cucumbers and bell peppers. Radishes and cherry tomatoes didn't grow well enough to harvest a decent crop.

Garlic for 2022, planted last fall, growing nicely. Also transplanted Bohemian horseradish.

Will see how the Bohemian horseradish does in it's new location. If doing well, will kill of the standard horseradish.
I have an excuse. CRS.

I been wanting to plant garlic for years, finally did it on 11/23/2021.

Does that count as 2022 garden?

I currently have a cabbage core rooted and showing some leaf growth on the window sill and the bottom of a onion that is rooted and showing some growth right next to it!

They are gonna need some soil real soon!

Yup. Have spots where the planted garlic didn't emerge. Also have some elephant garlic in the basement and will pick up some white garlic from the grocery store to fill in the spots.

Guessing, mid to late march plant those garlic bulbs.

I planted 27 cloves as a trial. No mulch

I think just about all of them are 2" tall before the big snow that showed up yesterday / today!

It is neat how it grows in the cold! :)

Hopefully the snow will not melt before we get the single digit temps they are calling for next week and the week after!

I got all my seeds for 2022. we are going to grow our tomatoes and cucumbers inside the 20' x 72' greenhouse, the rest of the vegetables will go out in the field, we have a heated 12 x 20 greenhouse that we start all our seeds in then transfer to the field, if everything goes well we will put up another greenhouse for all the vegetables. and still grow sweet corn , pumkins. melons, and sunflowers out in the field.
we use drip irragation for everything from our pond.

Got a cabbage started and rooting from a core, and a onion started and rooting from a bottom slice off of the onion!

Thinking of cutting the cabbage core into 3 or 4 pieces before setting it in a pot with dirt.

Flooding is very possible again this year and all we can do is plant and hope! Some areas got hit harder than others last year with flooding!

Unfortunately not planning on putting in a garden this year. With the acquisition of some additional property and an increase in work load with the new property, we don't find it feasible to try and squeeze a garden in. However, next year may be different. I'll definitely miss it, we have a garden every year and can/freeze most of it.

I did plant 24 asparagus crowns last year. I will anxiously await to see what comes back this year. Also with the property, came five apple trees that need a real good pruning and see how that goes in the next couple of weeks or so.

My 2021 garden was also drowned and a disaster. Trying to learn from the experience so next year I will hill up the rows before planting.
