Every year we plant about 200 potatos, and 100 onions, and a big row of peas

Thats about it for our main garden, but we also made raised beds.

The dimensions are about 8x8. and 3 feet tall.

We plant all of out tomatoes, peppers, and zuchini, with some space left for radishes and carrots.

Also, what do you use to till your garden?

Below is a picture of my 64' Landlord with a 10" Plow, and behind it is my dads 35' wc puller

Right now...snow. I plant in May. Tomatoes, sweet peppers, hot peppers, more hot peppers, cukes,zucchini, lettuce, kale, lots of pumpkins, butternut squash, melons, and more hot peppers.
My wife makes a lot of fresh salsa. She has many fans. My garden is about 75x60 and I always seem to enlarge it a little more each year.
I use my 1982 Troybilt 8 Hp tiller.

Right now, mud.  After 3/4" of rain today and talking through tomorrow also.  No hot peppers here.  I won't allow them on the place.  Radish, couple 3 different onions, tomatoes, green and red peppers, beets, peas don't do well in this soil so don't plant them, maybe some green beans, jack-o-lantern pumpkins, burpless cucs, musk melon, might do water melon this year, one zucchini plant is enough for us.  No potatoes as have no place to store them, may put a short row for new potatoes.  Can buy the sweet corn for less than fighting the coon and deer for it.

 

Fall plow it with the garden tractor.  Spring I pull the disk over it and then till it.  All tractor attachments.  Have a couple different cultivators for the row crops.  Done it the hard way for many years.  Now I do it the fun way.  We get to soon old and to late smart. :smilewink:

It was a lot of dirt but now it's raining so I am guessing mud but I haven't checked to be sure.

We have in 7 80' rows of potatoes, we still have a 100lbs of potato seed sitting here waiting for more time to be put in. We put a little bit of corn just to have some early. I haven't gotten the corn planter set up yet.

 

In the high tunnel, we have peas, lettuce, spinach and getting ready to plant a couple hundred pounds of ginger.

 

There is still lots more to plant, just have so much to do I don't know when I will ever get time.

Oh I forgot, I use my Kubota L2000 for tilling and plowing

Mine is mostly mud, with a light dusting of snow. I turned pigs out in it last fall to clean it up and till it a bit (and fertilize). As soon as it dries up enough I will plow it, then disc it and then till it using my 1054 Bolens. I will be planting potatoes, peas, green beens, yellow beans, kidney beans, sweet corn, tomatoes and cucumbers. I currently have one raised bed with asparagus in it. This comes back on its own every year. I am planning on building two more, one for Swiss chard which comes back on its own for a second year, then self seeds and one for carrots as my soil tends to get too hard for them to grow well (will have different soil in this one).

 

I can't seem to find a picture with my plow hooked up. After tilling I will run over the garden once more with this cultivator to smooth and level it before planting.

Great thread! Garlic is up so far and have stuff started under grow lights in the basement coming along.

Started are peppers: poblano, Serrano, tomcat sweet Bell, carmen sweet peppers.

San Marzano and Tappys Heritage tomatoes

Superstar sweet onions and conservor shallots.

Eggplant and a few herbs.

Still more to plant, I do plants for most of my neighbours. Still have to plant indoors around April 15th melons, squash, lettuces and a couple dozen corn for early starts.

Mud and snow.  Those WC front rims sure would look good on mine!

Mud and snow.  Those WC front rims sure would look good on mine!

They have been cut down from original size, i think they were 8 an cut down to 6(?) 

I could be completely wrong about it though.

Quick story on the wc, it was given to my dad from his grandpa, who used it to plow a 5 acre garden and cultivate, so it had a pretty easy life.

It had the original tires for it, but some time down the line got lost or traded, im not to sure.

He put a wd45 crank in it, and high compression pistons in it, and did some other things to it, but i forgot them all.

As it sits, it makes around 70 hp on a good day with airplane gas.

I've been planting tomato & marigold seeds in the greenhouse lately.  Cut the seed tators this morning!  I would rather have let them dry a couple days, but rain is in tonight's forecast, so they went in the ground this afternoon, Red Norland, Kennebeck & a few Yukon Gold.  Also planted 160 +/- yellow & white onion sets.
