Thought it would be good start a gardening thread and members can post information and pics regarding their garden. The last frost date in my zone is fast approaching and we have another big garden planned this year. Our good friend/neighbor is the real master gardener and he comes over to lead the gardening effort in our yard along with our neighbor's yard (it is about an acre and a half all together). We grew probably 18-24 different vegetables last year and have apple trees, pear trees, cherry trees, fig trees (hopefully ours will bear this year) and paw paw trees. We also have tons of red raspberries. This goes along with our chickens (we have 11 now and will be getting another dozen this spring). Last year we had about 1200 feet of zinnias which were just gorgeous. We will be growing more food this year, but still will have lots of zinnias. Here are some pictures from last year.
