Default Bio's garden 2016/17

I'm going to document my garden's success and failures here, hopefully limiting the failures. It is nice to go to past season's pics. and compare. At least I like that kind of thing.

Mostly hybrids, Odoriko, Marianna, SunGold, Suncherry,Parks Whopper, and a couple heirlooms.
German Johnson, not purple strawberry. Wish I had started more, but I ran out of time. Maybe next year. Brian, Bio, B I don't care!

Some one gave me one little piece about 15 years ago and I stuck it on the avocado tree and let it go.
It pretty much fends for itself. I'll feed it some banana peels every once in a while though.

Looks to me that you are averting the nematode crisis as well with your soil amendment practices, great job Brian.

Thanks, time will tell on that one! Everything has improved over the last few seasons, so there is hope.

Looking at the plant and fruit size with the fruit set, I think there should be a high degree of confidence that the roots are not completely entangled.

You really know how to hurt a guy. We got 2 inches of snow today and down into the single digits tonight. Just starting to think of starting seeds and you have ripe tomatoes. Looks great.

Thanks, I know what you mean! You'll appreciate spring so much more this way though!

Looks great! What sort of supports were peaking out from under that raised bed?
