Iron River, Michigan

The first picture is of my garden in 2009, and the second picture is of my garden in 2010 which we moved to a location that gets more sun. We also more than doubled the size, from 180 square feet (12 x 15) to 432 square feet (24 by 18).

2010 Season

We had an unusually good growing season. Early warm weather, lots of rain and a mild fall so far. We did have a frost after I planted and that affected my Minnesota Midget and Blacktail Mountain melons. Only one Blacktail Mountain watermelon survived. I learned a lesson to protect my plants if I am going to get greedy and plant early. All of my other plants did well I had all of my tomatoes in EarthTainers and GrowBoxes which water from underneath so it was humorous to be watering these plants after a rainstorm.

2009 Season

Our entire region had a horrible growing season. Many gardeners never had their tomatoes ripen. I felt fortunate when this late season tomato ripened 22 days later than expected. It had to withstand a few frost days to do that. Most of the tomatoes in my garden were 22-23 days late. I used Tomato-Tone fertilizer 3-4-6 and planted this tomato plant in an EarthTainer. Because of a shipping problem (no fault of my plants arrived much later than expected. I cut back on the number of days that I would normally harden off the tomatoes and this may have contributed to the later maturity date.
