2011 is going to be shit. I would've just skipped to 2012 too. Remember though, shit needs to harvest before December. The world is ending then.

I have already turned the garden over and expanded it by a few feet. Being in central Texas I should have planted a second round but was too lazy in August. I will go back in a couple of months and rototill in some fertilizer and be ready to start dropping seeds by late March.

I really need to come over to your place for dinner sometime. Freshly grown veggies are the shit. Maybe this is the year I get some stuff planted in the ground. If I'm around anyways. Hopefully I'll be on the road, but if not, now that I have the yard, I think I'll go for it.

im puttin taters & cabbage starts in by st. pattys day.

Guy showed me that if you cut the bottom out of 5 gallon buckets and put the bucket over the cabbage you can just put a lid on it when you have a chance of frost.
excellent trick imo.

wont turn mine over until the early march. Like you im gonna expand mine to take up most of the back half of the yard.

The best compost mix I have used was 50% top soil/40%Compost/10%Sand. rototill about 4 inches of that shit into the ground and it makes everything happy. I also use steroids for my Annuals. Growers mix/Terra sorb and slow release fert.

I had a hard time with stink bugs all over my tomatoes this year. I am going to try a trick I read about and plant marigolds around that part of the garden. Supposedly they are attracted to the yellow flowers and stay out of the maters.

coons and deer get most of our corn, so I'm gonna plant much more this year. I've got about a quarter acre of mowed pasture to turn up.

Dude i will have plenty. If you need your ground turned up i have a monster tiller.
My plan this year is to start all the early stuff in the house.

Im not gonna do alot of lettuce and carrots like last year. For sow in row im gonna stick with pole/bush beans,corn,taters,& tomatos. Might put a row of sweet radish and a hill of black seed lettuce.
Only gonna do the ox heart heirlooms this year.

Gonna try these
http://www.burpee.com/vegetables/tom...rod000988.html
& a yellow variety i cant recall the name of for early tomato & stick with beefsteak and better boy for mid season. I gonna make BBQ sauce & juice by the quart.

do some research on chewing & sucking garden pests.

liquid 7,malathion,permethrins, are about all i can find. Hummert int. can sometimes get the old school hardcore pesticides.
