This post is killing me. I am selling my house in Monroe and moving back to Oak Grove. Cant start a garden and its getting to me. Hopefully we can get moved in time to start one even bigger than I have in the past.

This is the first time I have tried to grow anything. Got a 6x6 raised bed. Tomatoes, cucumbers. Cajun belle peppers, jalapeño, and some banana peppers. May be a little crowded, but I think it will be ok.
Ours too. Getting way over blown for just two guys working two gardens and way oversized for two families.
Added citrus trees, much more cucumbers, squash, and zuccs this year. I'm cool with starting our citrus orchard though, right next to one garden, but will morph into full fledged orchard in the next few years.
Weather prevented the final peppers and eggplants to be planted today, so next weekend will be the finished gardens.
I was wondering the same thing, but for moisture control. I dress my plants with cotton gin waste. The stuff is great but dries out really fast. I was thinking about coming back with some wheat straw over the top.
