    Been slowly getting back into vegetable gardening and am starting to gear up for 2019. Thought I would create a thread for those who want to discuss what is going on in their gardens this year.

    Cleaned out one bin of the compost system and topped off a small bed with it that will be where the hot peppers go. Planted some green onions in a 4X8 raised bed that I have harvested most of the fall onions from in the last month. I set aside half of another 4X8 raised bed to grow walking onions in. I have about 3.5 pounds of onion sets I will put out at some point in the next month or so. Started some snow peas but they are not up yet. Will turn under the winter garden in the next few weeks so it can sit fallow until May 1 when I start planting again.

    Any other veg growers here starting up for 2019 yet? (Yes you Texas and very southerner Florida people we know you are nearing the end of your season but I am talking about real Americans :11_2_1043:)

    Bought some seed potatoes today. Still early to set them out but wanted them before they sell out all but the crappy ones. Bought some more red onion sets as well. I might plant some of those Saturday depending on weather. Nice overall but super windy here today.

    I grow tomatoes. That's it. But I have a bunch of fruit trees and blueberry shrubs. So, cobbler and pie and cakes and all sorts of good stuff. Enough for the whole block to have a little.

    I have been trying with those, but the deer killed about half the ones I planted last year striping all the bark off the trees. The blueberries are starting to leaf out a little, but I can take them or leave them.

    All the potatoes and onions are officially in the ground. Will plant some fall one later in year. Radishes are starting to get a little red on the bottoms, so won't be long with them.

    Between the weather & motivation, it's been slow progress here. But I do have about 2/3's of the garden prepped, and about half of that has been planted with early season/cool weather crops. Like potatoes, onions, carrots, peas, beets, cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, lettuces, spinach, and celery.

    I do need to pick up some more taters & onions sets before they're all gone...….but I'll plant those later in the season for a fall crop.

    Here in NW Ohio it's time for planting anything yet. I'm really missing garden fresh vegetables.

    Do you ever go foraging? I used to enjoy doing that.

    Yeah I'm slow this year and have yet to pull the fall onions and garlic and I've planted peas and spinach and have stars in the house for herbs.
