I think yer taters are gonna rot in those tires, Goody... Taters like to be well drained and doesn't seem that the tires gonna let the water out... Maybe if you just plant them in straw in the tires that might work... I donno???

Other crops, however, will grow in tires... Peppers and tomatoes do well...

Well, folks, another perfectly good year is shot to gardening... It's warmer here than it has been and so we went out to the barn to check the plants that we have dug for the move... The Rhodies seemed purdy unhappy so we gave them a drink... I've got all the 5 gallon plastic buckets out away from the barn where they collect rain and hopefully the sun will melt alot of the ice and we'll be able to get some decent rain water tomorrow to water everything well...

Seein' as we are still in limbo on our move south we're kinda at loose ends as to next years veggie garden... Hopefully we'll hear somethin' in the next week or two and can start planning the new garden... We're gonna have to start from scratch in the new place which means lots of soil amending & plowing... I've got a 15 inch flat bottom plow and prolly will go down that far initially to get things all draining and mixed properly...

Been real... Check ya'll out on the "Gardening 2011" thread, whoever gets around to startin' it...
