I know that had to be a major effort to get that set up.  Congratulations on getting it done.

ccat - your mention of picking up leaves brought back a fond memory for me.  When my kids were growing up we lived in Pensacola and I would stop and pick up bagged grass and leaves for my compost pile.  If my son was with me he was so afraid that someone might see him that he would slide down almost on the floor so none of his friends would see him.   ;D

Welcome to the forum.  I always cut back our asparagus after it goes dormant in the cold weather of fall/winter but I have no idea when to if it doesn't go dormant.  :)

Just keep doing what your instinct tells you to do.

I thought your pictures showed quite a turn-out.  That is always great to see.

Congratulations to your daughter.  :)

They all got fed to the chickens instead of stomped.  :)  Two weeks ago we pulled off a dozen or more of of our plants and we don't have that big of a garden.

I know you know this but you need to take care of yourself in order to take care of Jewel.  We want you to be here 30 years from now.  :)

Some pictures just make you go AWWWWWWWWWW

Or ram Ringo is a big old baby.  What he is doing in the pictures is what he will do with his humans.  He never pushes or rubs but he will just lay that big head against you to see if he can't get some scratches/petting.

If you can find some sheep or goat manure it is awesome and you can literally plant right through it.  There are a bunch of sheep farmers in north Alabama.

This summer has been extremes on both ends.  Either we get rain every day for a couple of weeks or no rain at all for a couple of weeks.  Because of that we already have good hay and alfalfa put up for the winter and got our sheep numbers down enough that it doesn't matter what the weather does.

Our chickens really celebrate when we throw them in their pen.  :)

We had been in the 90's till a couple of days ago and since then we have been in the low 80's with a nice west breeze so it has been pleasant working outside.  It won't last much longer though.

General Discussion / Tomato Hornworm with Braconid Wasp Eggs

There are some long time gardeners on the forum but there may be a few that haven't seen a Tomato Hornworm infested with wasp eggs.  We jinxed ourselves a couple of weeks ago since we mentioned we had not seen any Hornworms this year and they are usually here in July. Starting a couple of days ago we have found a bunch of them and destroyed them but this one we left alone since it had enough eggs on it that it wasn't moving much anymore.

It never matters what a tomato looks like as long as it has that taste that makes you go YUM :)
