Gardening Area

These pictures are the gardening area for Andrew. This is before any preparation has been done to begin planting. It shows two overalls of the area and then the individual rows (or enclosed areas). It also shows the area that will be tilled for additional planting. When it is cleaned up, and planting begins, more pictures will be taken.
Andrew said there is a legend that when the snow has melted off the saddle of the mountain at the south end of Cedar, then you can begin planting your cold crops in the garden.

Tunnel Gardening June 24, 2014

Andrew is using a tunnel garden in his raised beds this year. The tunnel garden consists of aluminum tube hoops that arch over the planted area. They are covered with plastic and help to protect the plants and keep the moisture in. Andrew had plastic over the hoops but the wind blew them off. He will be replacing the plastic.

Andrew is using a laser cut plastic drip line irrigation to water his plants. In the first row this system is on the ground. In the two rows that are planted it has been suspended from the top of the hoops. He thought it would act like rain to water the plants but he has not been satisfied with the results so he will be moving them to the ground.

For now he is irrigating his potatoes but they will eventually have a drip line too.
In the two raised beds, Andrew has alternated different tomato plants with different kinds of pepper plants. He has onions on the south end of each bed and zucchini plants on the north end.
The tomato plants are: Celebrity tomatoes, Bush Champion tomatoes, Beefmaster tomatoes and DX5212 tomatoes.
The peppers are: Sweet Banana peppers, Anaheim Chili peppers, Yellow Bell peppers, Poblano Ancho peppers, Yolo Wonder green peppers and Jalapeno peppers.
