    Mowed over last years garden twice, raked it out today. Hit an irrigation line that must have broke off and stuck in the dirt... had to pull that mess out of the blades... ready to lay out the rows then till it...

    transferred 36 tomato plants to 3" pots, and 20 cukes, squash, and watermelon(combined) to the same size pots. 2 weeks yet to garden season

    From day two I've been missing plants, first I thought my pups had done it, so I put up some electric line around it to keep them out. Then I noticed that some of the plants had just withered over, so I replaced some, then I noticed bugs were eating the leaves, so put some sevin powder out today. Last year I had no crop to speak of, I'm determined to have one this year.

    I usually have half of my garden planted by now but winter hung on too long this year. I planted my sunflowers ealier this week, veggies will be in another week or two. Last year I planted potatoes on May 1, and they did well, this year the ground was still in frost two weeks ago.

    Had a busy weekend in the garden getting the veggy patch up to scratch. I got 4 good barrow loads of compost out of the bins this year so hopefully will have some good returns from it.
    Planted runner beans, French beans, leeks, 3 types of tomato, sweet corn, carrots, Kohl Rabi, broccoli and a hat full of different salad greens. Also put in a few raspberry and loganberry canes in the new fruit patch.
    Hopefully the pigeons and deer will remember that I will leave them alone if they leave the garden alone but I am not holding my breath!

    Very late, cold, windy spring for us as well. But the weather broke, and all the plants I've been raising from seeds in the kitchen are now planted outside. There are three varieties of tomato (cherry, paste, and big beef), peppers (sweet bell, miniature bell, pimento (yes I know, Spanish for "pepper"), jalapeno, Mariachi, and habanero), okra, Tromboncino squash (a climbing Italian variety), Chinese eggplant, white eggplant, Contender beans, cucumbers, radishes, and carrots.

    If you can find any small patches of sunlight where it's lit for six or eight hours, these are amazingly productive.

    Check for evidence of voles. They will eat all the roots before you know it.

    My grow plot has been taken over by saplings . I'm not about to brush hog and till it. If I did I'd have to tend a garden, just me. I have enough to do already around the place.

    Got irrigation reconnected and rows laid out in between thunderstorms today. Reversed rows 180 degrees so tomatoes are at the opposite end of the garden(my tomato rows are spaced 5' apart for asy access, rest of the garden is 1' row spacing). Now to count the 1' rows and make up a planting diagram...

    Planted watermelons, crenshaw, cantaloupe melons, and acorn squash. The okra, and summer squash are coming up, green beans are looking great as well. The tomatoes and peppers will need caged before you know it. The spring garden was a total loss, but the summer garden is showing great promise! God speed to all in their gardening endeavors!

    Just picked my 1st sweet corn of the year. I planted late because of all the rain and wet ground. One of my friends gave me some from his garden about 3 weeks ago. I am picking peppers eggplant, tons of cucumber. I picked 30 pounds of tomatoes today. They have been scarce for the last week as the first planting finished and the second was late because of all the rain. Okra should be flowering in about a week. Watermelon, Cushaw and vegetable spaghetti are coming along fine, but were also planted a bit late. The heat came on so fast this year that I am only getting 2 clusters on my indeterminate plants. I normally get 4. Luckily I planted some of the heat set tomatoes in my rows earlier than normal because we have been going into the 90's for a while and normal tomatoes will not set fruit above 90. The heat set will not set above 96, and we are above that many days.

    The watermelons are all coming in now. I have brought 3 carts (12 in a cart) in so far today, and there are many more to get. Coons and deer are getting in the plot as I have had to take down some of my electric fence wires down because the plants have gotten too high. Tomatoes are coming in faster than I can sell them now. As they get too ripe, I sell them for a $1 a pound to caners. Now I need a watermelon sign for the road.

    All I planted this year was potatoes. And I planted them late unfortunately. Half of them never came up even though they were sprouting when I planted them. I went out and bought some seed potatoes that I planted halfway though June. Hoping that they grow large enough for seed potatoes next year. The weather turned the past week and itís been very hot and humid. Theyíre suffering because of it. As long as I harvest enough to make mashed potatoes at Thanksgiving I will call it a win.

    I ordered some Peruvian Drop Pepper seeds in mid May but they still havenít arrived. Hoping they arrive at some point because I really want to grow them. After having them in a couple dishes Iím a fan. Wish they were planted because this weather would have them taking off growth wise.

    The wife does most of the gardening (farmers make the worst gardeners). Did plant a 1 acre sweet corn patch though. Put in 500 acres of sugar beets and 750 acres each of soybeans and wheat. Planted about 2 acres beets and 2 acres soy beans back in the woods for deer food plots. I'll plant brassicas and winter rye for the deer when most of the summer heat is over. We've had good spring and early summer rains and plenty of warm days so far. Much to be thankful for.

    Lettuce is providing a meal a day, never got radishes in because of it being way to wet to work in the garden. Tomatoes are blooming... Potatoes are doing good... thought my horseradish was toast but it came up with a vengeance 2 weeks ago

    We have been enjoying squash, tomatoes, okra, and cucumbers. The melons are nearing ripening, different varies of water melon, crenshaw, and cantaloupe melons, if I can keep the opossum out of them! We have had an extremely hot damp spring and early summer that has been a challenge to gardening.
