Guys all my little baby plants have turned into teenage plants! My tomatillos even have yellow blossoms on them. I'm going to take some pictures tonight of my set up when I get home and post them here!

Great thread I hope to follow this summer. I live in Michigan so we have a REALLY short planting season. I should have started stuff inside this year, but we had snow into April and I just had no motivation.

I picked up seeds a local Michigan seed company called Annie's seeds. She has lots of heirloom seeds that I hope will work well in my short growing season. My garden is really, really small, so it is really just a snack garden. (+ 20 small pots around the yard and deck). I work full time and we have some 4 day trips scheduled for each month this summer, so I don't have a lot of time to devote on a garden.

My goal for this year is to get some wonderful green beans. Last year and the year before they were diseased even though the seed packet said "disease resistant" lol. A sub goal is to see if I can harvest zucchini from my garden this year (although I still need to find an already started plant.) I really just hope to get some things to snack on from the garden during our short 3-4 month growing season.

Already planted: green beans, cucumbers, tomatoes, spinach, radishes, peas, collard greens, and some others I've forgotten. I hope to get some things to eat from the garden.

I saw a raccoon in my community garden last night.

I've joined the local gardening society! Hoping to learn from more experienced gardeners and especially about what works in our local climate. Other than that, not much happening.

Question from a newbie green pea grower... I have a pod on one of my plants, but the peas inside are really tiny. Will the peas get bigger within the pod, or is that it and I should just pick it and make a tiny stir fry with the pod?

A kind of follow up from
http://forum.theppk.com/viewtopic.php?f=49&t=33118&sid=60d0a29b4c7f49ada43a1eb42b38465d :)

I moved in march this year to be nearer to my current job in Uppsala.
This is what the "garden" looked on my birthday in July :)
The plan for next year is to use several raised beds/Pallet Collars in the stony part between the spalier and the small tiled area near the entrance. Had too much to do with packing and unpacking in spring to be able to plan.

Looks great helgonblomma! What direction is it?

Over here, I'm beginning to discover that I'm not as interested in growing veggies as I thought I would be when I got a garden! I want lots of herbs and some berries, but the rest will be filled with flowers. We have had some herbs this summer and have used them a lot (except the pineapple sage), so there will be more next year. I'm going to sow some biennials in september and some perennials later in the autumn, ridiculously excited to see how they turn out!
