Jimmy it does have BT.

  I have been away for a few days so not sure how well it's working. It looked to be working well before I left. And pops beans spraying every couple days.

So tomorrow I will be able to give a better answer for how it's looking and also exactly what I am using!

Those roots are amazing!
Thanks for the update videos. They really do help to tell the story.And let me appreciate how much work you have in front of you.

It looks like your new cucumber plants and the cantaloupe are very happy.

Maggie it has been fun but also has been slow. The issues we spoke about the other day should almost be over. After that it's just work, kids, and GH! I like the YouTube because it's so much easier than trying to remember where the pictures are and when they were taken. Also don't have to worry about storage!

Rabbit  the heat and humidity have not been bad so far. Only up in the low 90's. Not bad at all. I take plenty of breaks and have a dorm fridge in the GH that's full of water also have running well water in the gh!

Oh man that well water taste so good when it's hot out!

I've never seen anything like those roots.  That is great and amazing how thick and intertwined.

Jimmiec  I hope next time I will be able to get them to run a whole curly start to finish. And see how they look then. I was only at the point with this run to where the maters and flowers were just starting to set!

We need an update Bobcat! 


Or maybe I should say: Hey Bobcat It would be really nice to hear how things are going. Would it be possible for you to post an update?

Everything is dead.... lol.. like for real. Shut it down about 2 months ago. Had an invasion of field mice. Worse than during the winter.
Everything was looking good no mice no bug. Left for work came in a week later and every tomatoe was eaten on. Even the green ones. So I unplugged everything an walked away.

Lol walked away from everything. GH, garden, YouTube, and even here for awhile.

Took some time off to reset and spend with the little man.

Do have plans for this week. Lots of grass cutting today.

Jelly making tomorrow. As we ended up with about 25 gallons of BlackBerry juice in the freezer to make jelly with.

Have a lot of weeding to do around the okra, pumpkins, and sunflowers.

Tilling of the garden preparing it for fall while its dry.

Gonna start between 100 to 150 tomatoe seeds for the GH, along with 50 broccoli. Will be starting 50 broccli every 2 weeks for the next 12 weeks. So 6 different plantings.

Cabbage will be started in the next month and beans planted in the ground in about a month.

Lots going on!

Oh and my daughter is finally coming back from her dad's. Been there all summer. It been quiet as she can be a handful sometimes but we are missing her here.

Thanks for checking in Maggie, Steve had told me you asked about me. That was thoughtful. Thank you.

Looks like your place is doing great as always. Something that I strive for every season.

Finally the heat had been amazing. Today alone at my house its 99 right now with 97 percent humidity. You can almost drink the air! Lol

Taking more of your time home to spend time with your son is completely understandable.
I am sorry to hear that your HT was over run with mice.


Voles were our nemesis a  few years ago but we seem to have them beat back for now anyhow.  They can do a lot of damage in a short period of time

Good luck with keeping your mouse problem in check.

Thank yall. It takes a lot to get me down. And even more to get me to quit. I been told hundreds of times the GH here would not work cuz of the high temps.
I refuse to fail!
