    This is the latest garden i have ever planted. the tractor even in 4 wheel drive could not till the field. it was so muddy.i got maybe 2 acres tilled up in different spots + a few smaller strips. & had to leave the soupy ground go. I planted 1, 50 lb bag of field corn. thats a lot of corn I put the corn in even other spots that I usully don't use but want corn to make flower ect. I put in 2 50 yard rows of squash. I put in 2 ea 100 ft rows of cucumbers, I put in watermelons & cantalopes --I also planted 72 tomatoe plants-- I still have dipper goard seeds and okra to plant

    My garden is very late this year too because of the weather. I don't have everything in yet either.

    I did but the chickens ate it all about 2 weeks ago. I'm still replanting. [​IMG]

    Mine too is very late, reason was the Chickens, yes I had to build a big fence around it before I could do any thing.

    To OP - it sounds like it may be late, but it is certainly going to be plentiful! Wishing you a grand harvest.

    The weather really seemed to be against us this year. I have been tilling a little at a time. I finally got about half mine planted and at times I was transplanting up to my ankles in muck...

    I just hope it grows. [​IMG]

    Well! I am very glad to see i'm not alone! In northern North Carolina I'm wondering what I can plant at this stage of the game. I know we can do corn still...But GOSH, I want more than just CORN! It seems like every time it gets jussst about ready to dry out where we can get in there...we get another rain. Any suggestions for late May vegies in Pilot Mountain?
    eta: BTW your avatar freaked me out for a minute! How do you get an avatar to work animated?
