Yes, lettuce/radishs/ turnips/ peas/ spinach are up, Tomatoes went in the ground 3/17, inside my Walls of Water and they are doing good. Planted Corn, Green Beans 2 days ago. Cucumbers and Cantalope will go in next week. Oh and I planted some potatoes but just a few hills. :D

Too wet to Farm, but I have enough crown in about half the Garden and with the winds we are having, it drys out pretty quick. Hoping the section I want to plant the cucumbers in and the cantalope will dry out in the next week or so.

must be nice all we have here is clay i went and checked about an hour ago and while the surface is nice and dry not even a half inch down is still really soggy. i'm hoping that this year or next i'll be able to till in some compost and manure to help amend the soil probably add some sand too just to aid with drainage

supposed to have a few nice days this week with temps in the high 50's and 60's so tomorrow i'm going plant shopping and once the garden dries out some more i'll run through it with the tractor and cultivator just to break it up more, and hopefully get started planting. altohugh i have to replace the fuel line on the tractor now (i accidentally kinked it yesterday) and top off the hyd oil before i plow it up

still way too wet here for anything half of the yard has water laying in it including about a third of my garden area makes me think more and more about about making it a raised bed just don't have the money for that right now.

Right now we are trying to recover the nutrients in one of the gardens. We had corn in it for a couple of years that just killed are soil. In the other garden we have onion, tomatos, russet potatos, and cabbage. I hope to get the garden plowed again today or tomorrow so we can plant some more food.

Got the onions in the ground today. Then a friend of ours showed up with his 2750 John Deere pulling a 12 foot spike toothed harrow. In two passes he was done.:eek:

The cabbage.

The other garden. Sorry do not have enough room to get the whole thing in the view finder.


The electric fence box. It has a 5 mile range. It works good found out the hard way.:eek::rolleyes: It does keep the deer out but the small critters like ground hogs do make it under the fence. This past winter we had a ground hog do a number on last winters crop of cabbage and the collard greens.:mad:

been digging up some old shrubs out front that came with the house (bought it last year) and have been debating with myself, my wife and my folx about digging up all the freaking flowers that the previous owner had. I don't know jack about flowers but my folx say the ones we got are expensive, gotta get rid of em to have some "functional" plants like veggies in place, replace a raised garden thats rotted, eliminate another, it goes on and on help me rhonda!

They're lookin good guys.. As soon as I get some time I'll take some pics.
Mine really ain't big enough to call a "garden" (30' x 30') more like a "patch" I guess:rolleyes:
