I've grown em. Hot lil suckers fresh off the plant. Can't go wrong with em cause you can eat em fresh, dry em and powder em, or since they have a thick skin, they do well with pickling. Think of some tabasco vinegar sauce!

Well, a pic of the area/ground you have to work with can get us all started. Where would you want to plant stuff? Do you want to go in ground? Beds? We can help ya from there.

Partial sunlight is fine, depending on what you will grow. Sandy soil is not the best, but you can augment it with mulch, fertilizer, top soil etc to make for better soil.

What would you like to grow?

Most of our gardening is done in Earth Boxes, which are still under snow.
Except for the 4 that I have garlic planted in.

One thing I've learned about maters is that for me they do best when they don't get FULL sun especially at the height of the summer. I plant them in the backyard so they get most of the early morning and afternoon sun, but not much of the evening.
As for peppers, they can tolerate full sun. You can either prepare a large area of soil, or you can prepare just the hole for each plant. Remove the soil where the plant will go, mix some of the soil with fertilizer, potting soil and then use that new soil to back fill.
I like to start from seeds with most everything. But you could start off with seedlings too.

Maybe I should plant the corn I'm gonna grow this year in such a fashion to shade the maters then... Hmmm

By the middle of March, hopefully it will be composted. I'm pretty sure it will be decomposed.

Down in Granbury, you will most likely need to add organic matter. Soil in that area has lots of mineral content, but not a lot of organic content, if it is like the soil in Cresson. I've (unintentionally) tilled up some soil at Motorsports Ranch, and it looks pretty weak on organic matter.

Take a soil sample to your county agricultural extension office, and they will do an analysis on it, ant tell you exactly what you need.

Get some netting for your tomatoes, or the birds will peck holes in them. They won't mess with the peppers.

You should check out a book called The All New Square Foot Garden, its by a guy named Mel Bartholomew.

It will show you how to get good results from a small space and less work.

Wow! This may be the answer to my current garden dilemma. I've been wanting to make seriously raised beds- about 4' high, and have constructed frames made out of 12' long, 4' high skids. I was going to fill them w/ composted manure, but was wondering how to contain all that soil, given the space (~4") between the skid slats, w/ a non-rotting material. I had figured on screwing wonderboard to the skids for walls, but now....this is cool. I've got a bunch of rotting rounds and other brush, tons of leaves, etc., that can be put to use. I'm gonna look into this. Thanks for sharing.

Fahrvergnugen!
