Gardening in Oklahoma

I have lived in Oklahoma for over 12 years. Before that I thought of myself as a pretty good gardener, not a master but ok. Since we moved here, I have used raised beds with compost, maintain a compost pile for continuing to enrich the bad soil here to no avail. I have not had a decent tomato or green bean.

Does anyone have any tips for growing here? What am I doing wrong ?

1. Funny you should ask.

I was just about to post this elsewhere. I'm not a good gardener by any means, but I thought this story was pretty cool.


Oklahoma Inventor Creates Box To Make Gardening Easier


The shopping cart may be Oklahoma's most well-known inventions, but just east of the metro there's one invention anyone can use as well. It's gardening made easy.

"Yeah, that's our little catchphrase we're turning brown thumbs green," said Larry Pierce, Inventor of Garden Anywhere Box.

For seven years, Pierce has harvested the benefits of his Garden Anywhere Box.

"The corn is as high as an elephant's eye," said Pierce.

3. Oh hey - sorry, I actually meant to get back to you earlier.

I forgot to mention a couple of other things.

Like I said, I'm not a garden guru, but my grandmother (83 years of awesome) is. She still raises a HUGE garden every year. She generally has the great-grandkids bring her a few truckloads of horse manure from my dad's place for the garden in the late fall. Also, she adds a little lime to the garden, also in the late fall, every several years for some reason.

Hope this helps!
