Well I guess not s big as your garden sounds..lol. Me being new to the area here will have to do some trial and error. We have Deer and Ground Hogs out the wazoo and they are fine eating machines from what I saw when we got here late last summer. Im a seed freak by nature, so I have bags and bags of seed that I have collected from dinner preps and will try and go throw hand fulls of Spaghetti Squash, Cantaloupe, and Bell Pepper seed out around the areas with enough light to support them and let nature take its course. I will either have a bumper crop or a freakn petting zoo. 1 or the other.
Based on what I do know, I will probably tray and get some 5 gallon buckets
and grow maybe 6 -8 matos and the same on the Bells, but will keep them up on the 2nd floor deck..where only a bold critter like a coon/possum would travel. I currently have 4 matos in the grow room with around 40+ matos on the vine Both Better Boy Hybrid and Plum Dandy. With many young Bells Red and Yellow, and only a couple of them are 10" at this point and should produce for at least a couple months. Oh and 3 heads of celery..had to try it. A tray full of Radish, 10 of probably 50 have broke the soil. My biggest garden challenge this first year here, will be to find flowers for the yard the deer donít like to eat. They are always around eating the wild raspberries.
You know I may try and do a hydro setup on the deck, I have never tried an outdoor hydro setup but think between hydro growth and performance with free lighting.. it just canít get any better. I really need a Greenhouse.. Good luck
