I enjoy looking at people's gardens and produce also.  Pictures are nice.  I'm also jealous of the large gardens Randall, Daniel, and others have.

Chris, the carrots can be judged by the size of the greenery and, when they are ready, you should see the orange root breaking the surface, beneath the tops. At least that's the way l do it.

Chris, I posted my response in Discussions.

Ramadan-rabbits, Randall? What a fantastic place you have!

Comment by Barbara Livingston on July 8, 2015 at 8:39am

Chris, you are so right! What little I planted I had no clue as to when to harvest - pretty much by sight. Except you can't see carrots until you pull them, and I pulled too soon. Luckily the bunnies liked them anyway.  went by the growing time on the seed packet.

Randall, I enjoy everybody's pictures! My gosh, your garden is HUGE! I planted 8 sweet potato plants, lol.

I just downloaded some garden photos to share (not that anybody really cares). The first was taken two months ago, just starting. The cans were used to cover up fledgling (sp?) sweet potato starts (at night, so rabbits won't eat them). Notice my rows are weird--triangular pattern for a change this year.

The second photo is looking in the opposite direction (cans gone). Oops, the photos came up reversed.

I've discovered sweet potato plants have a mind of their own! Some hills look pathetic, with hardly any progress, while others are spreading like crazy. But 25 out of 30 hills are looking good, so that should supply me with enough potatoes to last a year. That is, if the voles don't get to them first. I have to be vigilant.

This year I have changed my roof garden to half and half flowers and veg, but I found out that there's always info about sowing but far less about harvesting. I sowed turnips, and they grew and flowered like weeds, but where are the turnips? Should I cut out the flowers? I have no idea. I forgot the radishes, when I found them back - lots of flowers but the radishes were 0.5 cm wide. Carrots seem to grow into a success, but I don't know when to harvest. So far I harvested quite a lot of lettuce, herbs and nasturturium flowers for a good salad. And there's more to come!

I'm definitely going to remove the plastic. I don't know what I was thinking. Yes I remember, weeds! I'll still have to rebuild. Better now than later.

I have huge sweetpotato vines growing out of one of the compost heaps. They must like it really wet. I'm trying to leave it undisturbed. I'd like to find out if it produces.  I disturbed a volunteer potato plant and found gravel size new potatoes in the bed. The yellow ones that I like. Lol

Oh, yes Joan.  I've never seen Sweet Potato leaves before.  They are beautiful.
