I just have a new hobby. It is called Gardening. My yard is not big enough, only 3x3m2. I plant vegetables, and flowers.
the vegetables are spinach, tomato, chilli and pakcoy. It's already harvest except tomato, the spinach and packcoy are boiled and we ate them with peanut sauces (we call "Pecel"). My family likes this food so much. Although we can buy it at store, but It is happier to plant it by ourself and harvest .

BEAUTIFUL garden! Congratulations, and keep up the good work.

Do you have room for a couple 5-gallon buckets? You can grow LOTS of stuff in buckets, and I see a bit of concrete in the background of your pictures!

Hi Linda, thank you very much for your advice.
I have opened the link and read it. It's so interesting to try.
Do you have any sketch/picture to describe the method (I need it as I am not good at english). My native is Indonesian. Wish you can help me.

Regards

Ya'll are very welcome.

I've downsized my eBucket garden, only because I can now build raised beds, and, hopefully do more succession/intensive gardening in the available space.

This'll be my first time growing cole crops directly in the ground, and I'm a bit apprehensive. I KNOW what I can do with an eBucket. REAL dirt frightens me a bit (just kidding)!

This'll be yet another learning curve.

Hugs!

#2 RB #2 with 4 mil plastic sheeting on ground, to control weed growth until filling.

Paula,
You are going to LOVE, LOVE, LOVE growing cole crops in the fall/winter!!!

Have you started seedlings are are you direct sowing? I have 6 trays of cabbages, broccoli and cauliflowers ready to go out for hardening off, then transplanting into RB #1 and #2. Had to build RB #3 to accommodate buy too much garden soil, but, I needed it anyways, just had to do it sooner than I planned.

What're you growing this season? And what're your temps there now in Brazoria? What did you fill your beds with? Brassicas love lots of organic amendments (compost, well aged manure)

Let's keep in touch and grow together this season, ok? Feel free to join us over on the Vegetable Gardening: STARTING OUR 2012 FALL/WINTER VEGGIE GARDENS - PT. 3 thread:

Lian: What kind of dirt are you using? Is it the store bought potting soil? And what part of the country do you live? Your vegetables look so good. You have a green thumb, as we call it.

HI Behillman,

I live in Indonesiaa. I use common soil, i bought it from garden store.
The weather is very bad here, it's really hot, I have to water them 2x a day.
Thank you for your appreciation of my vegetables. Wish I have a big land..(dream on)

I no longer wish for big land, it makes me remember having no time to care for it all, but sleeping very long. Plants in containers and plants in the ground are always capable of failing, but they are there for us to care for and tend and fuss over- good gardening!
