Ok so I got the garden weeded and looks a lot better.. There is still a lil rat killing next to trellises but that's not a big issue.





The squash we bought at a good deal from my buddy over here at the feed and seed. Some were real puny and didn't make it so we put eggplants in the spaces. The right trellis is cukes a variety called Homeade pickles ~!~!

Woodchip,  I share with neighbors, share with the birds, and we eat a lot too. I don't make wine or jam. I picked some today and have them in the fridge, I like them cold.

Picked some squash and zucchini. Also picked a bucket of rattlesnake beans. Wife eat some for lunch we picked yesterday, and she really liked them. This is 1st time planting the rattlesnake beans. She says she thinks she likes them as good or better than the blue lake's we've always planted.

I let mine get around 6" (actually whenever the weeds need dealt with) then side dress with triple12 and drag dirt up around them.I'm sure there are other ways of doing it.

Picked some more yellow squash, cucumbers and the first Cherokee Purple tomatoes.  It’s going to be a good crop of tomatoes this year.  Giving rain for the next 10 days here, hope it doesn’t mess things up.

 :o :o :D :D

I have never grown potatoes before... but I'm really excited about finally getting the chance to try it out  8)

ok, my potatoes are breaking ground. I planted them about 4 in down. Do I cover the tops and let them come up another couple inches or let the leaves come out and just pull dirt up around them???  ??? ??? ???

Some instructions would be great!  :) :D :D

Thanks all!

Weather in my area.....it sucks!!!
Actually it is 77 and sunny today, but when you have 125 tomatoes in a greenhouse and the month of May hasn't cooperated one bit, the weather sucks.
Standing water and a soaked garden means I will get my toms out in June.   What is up with that?
Ok, enough venting,   It is what it is and I'll be fine.
At least I got seed in the ground Friday before last nights storms.
Hey Mother Nature...........do you have anything better to do than keep NW Arkansas so wet? ???

Ok, just to follow up...

I finally got my order from MCS. Better late than never. They were out of one item and replaced it with a more expensive version for the same price. You gotta give them credit for that. I appreciated it.

I think they just need to work on upgrading how they communicate with their customers a little better is all.
