Vegetable Gardening, the Ultimate Overindulgence

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by Pistolenschutze, May 9, 2009.

  1. Well, I just got back from the gardening store with all my vegetable seeds and plants to put down this afternoon. I think I overdid it a bit. :eek: Why is it that when faced with all those different varieties of 'maters, cucumbers, peppers, and such, we get this urge to buy at least one of each???? :eek::D Anyone else have this problem, or am I the only crazy one who does this? :D

    Hay Pistol, I dont think it's a problem at all. In fact this season I am experimenting with vegies and this summer i have plans for a garden much larger than what i have now. I have 6 acrea and why should i not have some of this land produce for me. I am bringing a disk in from Tx next time i go and plan to disk up about a 100' x 100' area to get ready.

    But the big reason to do this is because at some point all the money washington is spending is gonna cause inflation and you will need a wheelbarrel of money to buy a loaf of bread. So you know.

    im with ya

    I'm bummed that I can't do a garden this year. I've always over did it on buying plants. I was horrible at buying tomato and cuc's. I think I supplied half the town with salad fixings. :rolleyes: :eek: :D

    No, I'm with you on that too.
    Been enjoying the carrots, romaine, broccoli, onions, peppers, etc for a couple months now.
    Southern planting season starts sept/oct.
    Where I go overboard is with motorized soil sifting tables and 8-10 4 ft by 16 ft raised boxes in the side yard.
    If you build them, ya gotta plant them!!
    Nothing tastes better though.
    Hurricanes salt and kill the soil, it's taken 5 years for it to come back enough for veg etc.
    Next year'll be great.
    Oh, forgot the green beans, thery were the best!!

    probably won't be long Obozo will outlaw gardening. maybe something about people digging in the ground are terrorists? or tomatoes look a lot like small bombs? maybe cukes could be used as missles?








    kEEP BOTH BARRELS LOADED!
