What should i be planting in my garden right now?

I have a raised bed area for garden, which is about 12' x 5' , and 3 other garden beds , all of which are about 3' x 4' and are planted with various shrubs , tomatoes , some peppers etc... . I know that I have to start planning on my garden for the future , but , im a bit confused as to what is actually needed and what is just there to please my mother ( who has planted in gardens for many years ) . So in a nutshell , what are the most vital vegetables to plant at this moment in time? and also , i live in the middle of a wood which , i must say , can be a bit spooky at times ...but can it be an issue for crops , such as tomato , potatoes or peppers ( for example ) ?

I'd say as you move the beds in the raised bed you're going to have to think about succession gardening, so that as your garden starts to fill up with plants, you can keep that bed going, by removing old plants and planting a new crop. So for example, if your main crop in that area is a lettuce, you can continue to grow lettuce in there, but when you need the space, you just pull the lettuce and plant a new crop.

What should I grow at this moment? We have a big ol' bed (about 4ft x 4ft) that is dedicated to just a single vegetable - green beans. I had it ready to go with soil and seed last year, but did I plant it? No. I figured I was going to plant more than just green beans. So last year we bought a new bed to add to our garden. We put in some compost, some more soil, and started to plant it last weekend. The question is - when do I plant this? I'd like to get my beans in now. We're having freezing weather right now. By the time the weather warms up enough that I plant my beans, the seeds will likely be too hard to plant, and there may be nothing to harvest.

Any suggestions? I'm thinking about starting with a small plot (perhaps just one plant) and transplanting it to the larger plot. I'm wondering if I'd get any trouble if I transplant. I don't want to start my transplant too early.

That might work, and I have heard of people doing that - with a lot of success. The only thing I might suggest would be not to try it if you're going to cover your transplants with a tarp or something, as you may get some of the transplant soil or fertilizer in the tarp. There are, of course, other possible ways to do this, but these are all the ones that come to my mind.

The one thing that I can't really answer for you (because I haven't been through this) is how much of a yield you will see by transplanting your beans at this point. Is it like a large transplant (which will start to come up next year) or is it more like a small transplant (which will come up within 3 months)?

You've got a lot of good questions here. It sounds like you have several choices depending on the time you plant and the temperature you have and are about to have.

I plant corn at the end of October in the south. In other words, we're having a very cold October right now. I've had good luck starting the beans indoors and transplanting them into soil where it is warm enough to get them going right away. So, that would be my advice. It's been a while since I've planted beans, but I think you'll find the directions for this all over the internet. Here's one with some pics:

Good luck with the transplant! I didn't plant anything for beans last fall because we got a big rain in the last month of August and we wanted to make sure everything got watered for the winter. I was also afraid of waiting too long to start because it can get cold this time of year. We didn't even have time to harvest our last season's squash yet, so the beans aren't going to have time to mature if we transplant in late October. It also means you will probably see less frost in your spring, which is a good thing! So maybe you can start your beans indoors and transplant them into soil in early October, then transplant them to the garden in late October? That's what I did last year. I haven't seen any beans this year and I'm starting to wonder if I missed the transplant window. I hope the cold won't kill them. Maybe you will! We've had a couple frost nips, so we might not see beans for a month or two. (I had a feeling I was going to get frosted this year. I'm starting to hate getting frosted, since we only get around 5 frost days a year. It would be nice if we had spring and fall.)

I don't know why you don't like corn. I actually think it is one of the easiest crops to grow, but not so easy to pollinate. I don't think we have any problems with pollination. I guess the only thing I don't like about corn is that it takes time to grow. You have to keep the soil wet. Some people hate that. I don't mind that though.

Yes, beans do really take up some space. I'm wondering if that is the reason for the smaller yield. It's just one of those things I don't understand about bean farming. It's just a pain in the butt. We could probably get an easier return on our investment by switching to wheat, but we're pretty loyal to our corn (we make my husband a beer on the corn's behalf every year). It's just so frustrating. It's a nice crop though! So far, we've gotten 4 pods each of butter and navy. We should have corn at least 6 times this year.

Oh, yeah. I don't think you could call it an experiment. My husband did most of the work. I helped him plant, and now, he tells me to dig. That's fine. ,)

The beans and peas don't take up a lot of space, but I do believe they are the first thing we've planted that haven't germinated. Everything else has germinated.

I hope you can't wait to have more corn in your garden next year. We did okay with corn this year.

My husband's great aunt is the expert on beans. I'm not sure if she likes them or not. In general, they're kind of a pain. They do well though. My experience is with dry beans. (I grew up on dry beans. I didn't know beans had other varieties until I had to start growing them again when we moved to Georgia. I was like, "What are you talking about?" But I guess it happens.) Beans are the kind of plant where you're constantly waiting for them to ripen. We get maybe one good pod each. I don't know if that's a good or bad thing. I don't care for them.

I have no clue if these beans are sweet or not. I never really pay attention to them. ,) My dad loves them though. He grows sweet corn in the early summer, and he grows dry beans and dry peas the rest of the year. When the summer peaches ripen, he pulls them down and makes the most delicious ice cream I've ever had. I'd love to try that. I know he's getting a good return on his investment though, so I think he's all good. ,)
