How wonderful!!!! All I’ve got this year are some raspberries and a peach tree. I am so envious of your squash blossoms!

Great job! I would have never thought about growing garlic. 

I always have blackberries, but this year I decided to try my hand at cucumbers, jalepenos and bell peppers. They were all doing so well when my dear sweet husband decided to herbicide the yard. He accidentally sprayed my garden and killed my beauties right as they were all blooming. Sad.

AWESOME! Love the rainbow chard, what beautiful colors!

LOVE LOVE the garlic.

Our season is much later so nothing ready to be picked yet! I don’t generally pick the squash/zucchini that small but does it promote it to grow more like it does with other plants?

This year we’ve gotten a couple different jalapeno peppers, red/green/yellow/orange peppers, pickling cucumbers, squash, zucchini, watermelon, roma/big boy/cherry tomatoes, Chinese squash and some Chinese greens I don’t know the English name of!

Oh no! 🙁

The garlic looks awesome! 

I don’t have a garden, just a few potted herbs and a tomato plant on the deck.

What do you do with that much garlic?

Wow, the garlic is awesome!

We’ve got broccoli, cabbage, corn and tomato plants out. We normally do more, but as you know…it’s a lot of work!

Enjoy your spoils!

When I saw all your garlic it re-prompted me to look into growing garlic again. I think I might just plant some this fall finally! 😉 I read on a site that if put in a dark cool place in a paper bag garlic can last up to a year.

We go through that much garlic in 2-3 weeks. We cook with garlic a lot!!! It also keeps well in olive oil for dressing. We also roast garlic alot for garlic bread, paninis, wraps,etc etc.

Thanks for the tip re: zucchini and squash! We always let them get way too big and I swear it’s like one day they are great size the next they are ginormous!

Beautiful! That broccoli looks gorgeous! FYI I did garlic last year (no garden this year b/c of wedding, *sob*)–harvested in July or so, cured them for about 2 weeks (about 2 lbs), they seriously lasted me till about 3 days ago. They were starting to get green shoots in the middle but were still usable, and still quite tasty.

Very yummy looking crop! DH’s dad grows garlic and has to keep adding more rows each year since Mother-In-Law is Italian and they go through a lot of it! I need to do broccoli sometime. Right now our tomato plants are looking gooood…they’re practically trees.

@MrsLongcoatPeacoat:  I know this thread is old, but since it is about gardening, how do you manage raspberries?  do they spread (I know blackberries do-and can be hard to control)

@beemyname:  Raspberries do spread–I have to prune them every spring when they spread past our neighbor’s side of the hard.  I cut them all the way down to the ground.
