Greetings from rural northeast Oklahoma near Tulsa. We attempt to grow our own vegetables in raised beds because we live on clay and rock! We believe everyone should try to eat fresh vegies when ever possible. If you can't grow your own, please search for a farmer's market near your home. We hope to share comments, recipes and helpful serving, presentation and other hints. Yes, veggies are delicious! Even the kids love them if they aren't green!
Hello everyone, I was just wondering how your plans for 2012 veggie garden are coming along? Are you going to plant a large variety or a large quantity? Winter here in NE Oklahoma has been extremely mild. I have planted a few rows of onion sets thus far.
I picked swiss chard from the garden today,but later I wasn't in the mood to cook it. I think I'm getting bored,anyone have recipes for swiss chard? I usually saute it with onions and garlic with a little butter and olive oil.I also wrap fish in swiss chard and steam it. Any ideas?
Hello everyone. We had a wonderful 2 day heat wave here in NE Oklahoma and were able to turn over the soil and get our raised-bed garden ready for yet another year! How's things in your area? Have loads of plans for your garden for 2011? Let's hear about the plans. Yes, it'll help make winter pass faster if you make plans for Spring & Summer. I can smell the tomatoes growing, taste the fresh lettuce as it melts in my mouth. Cucumbers, onion - delicious!
Hi,I am from Mississippi and have been gardening for years with somewhat success.I have seen on several television shows where they planted vegetables in square bails of hay.They took a bail of hay put made two holes in it.They would then put top soil in these holes and plant their
plant into these holes.You would just keep plant water and fertilized as you would any other plant.I haven't done it myself but it is an alternate way of gardening.
