    What you got planted ?

    I have finished putting in some tomato's - Homestead heirloom , Creole and Roma.
    Gypsy and Jalapeno peppers , Garlic , Green onions , Mirliton and some Red Okra.

    Not going to grow squash or cucumbers...they grow way TOO good and make so much I swear I'm never going to plant anything I don't really enjoy eating.
    The squirrels wouldn't eat cucumbers or squash either. I made pickles until I can't stand to think about pickles. Done with cucumbers .

    So what you growing this year !

    Blueberries fully set on. Have three Brussels Sprouts growing, a couple garlic, four eggplant, two peppers, and two cukes. One tomato, and a couple rows of beans. Asparagus beds should be producing this year or next. The fig will give us some too. Not a lot of room to plant here.

    Keeping it simple this year. 2 tomatoes (1 heirloom and 1 cherry) 2 hot peppers, and the rest is devoted to beets, carrots, onions, garlic and lettuce.

    Some oats in the big garden. Too early otherwise. Two more weeks. Then corn, onions, beans, pumpkins and maybe okra when it warms up a bunch more. Might get some tomato plants to plant.
    Gonna be cold this week

    Tomorrow is the planned planting day. Tomatoes, one cucumber, jalapeños, and whatever my wife wants. Last years tomatoes were disappointing around here.

    I may let her plant green beans, but she has to pick them. I sold them one summer as a kid about thirty years ago...I will never pick another green bean

    Hopeful if we get rain and weather holds. Barn Swallows are back as of two days ago. Just need a day or so to plow and plant. We had a frost warning last night.

    Weather not good enough yet. Going to plant the onion and potato sets tomorrow, probably plant my tomatoes, peppers, squash and cukes at the end of the week. I always plant my garlic after the first frost in the fall.

    I put cowpea seeds and spring green onion sets in the ground yesterday. I put spinach and radish seeds in a few weeks ago, they look pretty good now after a rain a few days ago.

    AND...Lots of blooms on my fruit trees, most importantly one reluctant Pear tree (that's been growing for about 12 years) that has only put out a few blooms each year for the last 5 years, I did get 5 pears in 2013 and one pear last year.
    If all goes well, I should be counting pears by the bushel this year.

    Our early cool weather veggies (lettuce, spinach, radishes, chard, and endive) are coming on fine. Next up this week to go in the ground will be peas, zucchini, pumpkins, more lettuce, and broccoli). I still suspect a late frost so will wait a week for tomatoes and cucumbers. Onions and Ozette potatoes have been up for a month so fertilizer is in order. Our fruit trees are now done so in a month I will know if our mason bees did their part - fingers crossed.

    3 15 foot rows of lettuce(feeding 2 salad eaters daily), 2 rows onions, 2 rows carrots, row radishes, row of peas, row of beets, row of cabbage. My kale survived the winter and is bouncing back well. And my Brussels sprouts are coming back after over wintering(plus I have 7 more to plant as soon as they get a little bigger).

    40 tomato plants waiting to go in after frost danger has passed, sweet corn to plant, beans, watermelon, squash, cucumbers, 16 pepper plants, and new this year I am planting hops.

    We have a very small garden and are not what you would consider people of the green thumb. How difficult are the raspberry plants? I live in Central Illinois where is can be 30° one day and 70° the next during the fall and spring. I assume they take a few years to produce?

    Our garden is small, so a little of many things. Potatoes, corn, peas, carrots, tomatoes, cukes, zucchini, radish, watermelon, onions, jalapeno and Anaheim peppers, strawberries, basil and a couple of other herbs.
    Mother-in-Law likes burdock root. Going to try those in a retired 55 gallon water drum.

    Corn is just about waist high now. Strawberries are starting to show the beginnings of berries. Now, if we can keep the birds and the rats away, there may be something left for us.

    You might want to tell us what soil type you have? and hopefully one of our red raspberry experts will reply with some hints, tips, and tricks. In general Raspberries are quite hardy, as long as you order plants rated for your Zone from a reputable supplier, preferably pre-grown in your zone (don't order from Gurney's seed, they are the worst). I have had great luck ordering from Jung's in WI for my Zone 4 garden in MN. Oh, Plant them in Full sun if possible.

    If you get some nice size plants and put them in the ground in May, you will probably get some berries the same year.

    Mostly I grow wild Black raspberries (plants I've transplanted locally, from a marshy wooded area on my friends farm). They require a different pruning regiment and the canes get unwieldy if they aren't tied up to some sort of structure or post and they only fruit on second year canes.

    As I understand it, generally Red Raspberries don't need to be tied up? and I am not sure about pruning, and that's why I hope the Red Raspberry experts chime in here, as I planted 3 varieties of Red Raspberries last year and am ready to learn.
