Strawberries are pretty hardy but if they are blossoming you need to cover them (I'm not an expert but we did strawberries last year which was our first year gardening) mine did not make it through the winter I don't think. We got to -40 F and our "normal" lows for our zone are -5 to -10 F so it was well below normal. I don't have anything green and I think they should be popping up by now. I am probably going to have to replant all of them this year


The only time you should look in your neighbor's bowl is to make sure that they have enough. You don't look in your neighbor's bowl to see if you have as much as them.

Strawberries and potatoes are going in the next day that it stops raining o.O so between today and Thursday!

Re: Gardening year ~ 2014 Chat thread

Ok how much water a day does my garden need. They are raised beds one bet will have cucumbers and squash. The other will have green beans tomatoes lettuce. Carrots onions. Kale. Herbs will go into pots. We will be using a drip system on a timer. I am afraid I am going to over or under water. They are saying we are in for a hot dry summer so I need to conserve water but I want our gardens to thrive. We have a well but will be using rain barrels to help ease the strain on the well but if we have a dry year there won't be much rain water. So how much water a day do I need to give them

Re: Gardening year ~ 2014 Chat thread

This is my first year trying to grow anything besides flowers I bought 2 heirloom tomato plants at our local green house. I hope they do well, my kids are already excited about being able to make tomato soup like their Mermie (my mom) does.

Re: Gardening year ~ 2014 Chat thread

The weather has gotten better around my neck of the woods. So finally I have been able to work on the garden. It feels great to be outside! Yesterday, we got 4yrds of dirt delivered to put in our 3 new beds. It was a lot of work and I'm so sore! Its all worth it. I'm excited to finally be able to plant.
