Year before last I also learned when the tops start to yellow stop watering...the loser the soil the better for bigger more even taters...

They look pretty lonely in this picture but these are our two barrels. You can see the plants in the first barrel doing pretty good after only a couple of weeks. They are much smaller in the other one.

Nice that is what I want to do, but with big wheels on them so I can move them around...I love growing in containers, its easier for weed control, and harvest!

I've decided unless my husband builds me a greenhouse, I am not even going to bother with warm-weather loving veggies like tomatoes, squash and peppers. Even in the summer, although the day temps get up to 90-100, at night, it cools down to the low 40s, sometimes 30s, and our first frost was Aug 30... so, I think this year I am going to concentrate on veggies that like cold weather...

Anyone else doing cold weather lovin veggies?
These are the veggies that make up our 'fall garden'... planted in Sept., it makes all winter. I just pulled up the last of the lettuces and cut the last shoots of broccoli. Can't grow anything like that here in spring, it bolts.

We actually spend a great deal of time and money KILLING grass/weeds that like to pop up in all our gravel. LOL

We DO have a lawn though. In fact our irrigation guy is coming out tomorrow afternoon to fix some things with out valves.

We used to have TONS of them wandering through out yards, that is until a number of new people moved into the neighborhood with cats. The bird populations have plummeted since. Most cat owners see nothing wrong with letting their furry beasts wonder through the whole neighborhood.
