Introduction: Our Red Dirt Garden

Picture of Our Red Dirt Garden

Here are some shots of our humble 20x30 red dirt garden in South Georgia. We had a garden in this area last spring and summer and replanted this spring. We grow cucumbers for pickling and fresh eating. We also planted sweet corn, tomatoes, turnips, beans, peas, squash, okra, asparagus as well as hot an sweet peppers. Some of the seeds were planted a little late and have yet to come up, but we are expecting a good yield. Last year we canned over 60 jars of pickles and peppers. We are looking forward to canning pickles as well as making salsa and spaghetti sauce. The asparagus will take another year or two for maturity. We start all of our plants from seeds.

Your garden really looks very well taken care of very few weeds, mine is an ocean of weeds now. I live in North East Georgia know all about the clay soil, next year I'm going to use grow bags and kiddy pools. I will be able to control the weeds and some of the bugs, my peppers and tomatoes are really the only things that survived this year.My sweet potatoes are thriving because they are in a raised bed at the top of the garden, I will be digging soon.

Nice! I'm jealous. I'm still a couple weeks from our last frost date...
