I planted the 2014 garden recently.  I am going smaller and hoping to maximize the backyard sun.  I have the electric fence up and all plants in.

 

I grew San Marzano tomatoes, sweet bell peppers, parsley and basil from seed in the basement.  I purchased Thai basil, cucumbers and more San Marzano tomatoes.

Looks good Dave. My wife loves the San Marzano tomatoes. I've never planted any but may have to try. Up till now all of ours have come from a can and that is when we can find them at the stores.

I used to use small raised beds for about three or four years before.  I used garden soil.  I tilled it into the regular soil when I took them apart.  I till in the leaves and put some compost in from that bin in the picture.

 

Looks good Dave. My wife loves the San Marzano tomatoes. I've never planted any but may have to try. Up till now all of ours have come from a can and that is when we can find them at the stores.

 

I like them for sauce.  This is the first time I  have grown them from seed.  Only half came up, but the seem to be doing well.

Do you have problems with cutworms? I thought I was doing O.K. this year, no sign of the little pests for the first week after I put the tomatoes and peppers out. Then BANG!! in two days I lost four tomatoes and a pepper. Dug the little beggars out and squashed them, but small compensation for loosing the plants. Then I dug around the survivors, 34 tomatoes, 15 hot peppers and 24 cabbages and broccoli, and put plastic tubs around them to keep the worms out. Hind sight is twenty twenty, should have done that in the first place, right? The dumb part is I know better, just was in a hurry to get things done.
