    Some Okra plants (with weeds posing as well [​IMG])

    Some russet potatoe plants that I have absolutely no idea if I am doing right

    [​IMG]

    Some of the blue potatoe plants that are trying to recover from being transplanted out of the bed that I put fresh chicken poo in (like an idiot)

    One of the guilty chickens who didnt warn me not to put fresh chicken poo in a garden bed. I should cook her. Good thing she lays lots of eggs

    A view of the field that next spring is going to become a VERY BIG garden

    Two piles of horse manure. One is for spring 2010 and the other which will be MUCH larger will be for 2011 with all kinds of leaves, coffee grounds, vegetables, etc etc. In the background is another watermelon patch with four corn plants.

    Some more guilty chickens, I have 19 girls. They are about 5½ months old I expect

    This is Brutus the dog. He wandered up after Hurricane Ike at my sisters house. He's a keeper. If it moves in the yard, he'll kill it. I've seen him eating snakes. He's a good boy (he's a meathead really but I tell him he's a good boy)

    Very nice. I'm jealous. I have only room for a small garden. I would love to have room to plant melon and pumpkins or even some corn. As it is I wish it would just stop raining here in NJ so I could get ANYTHING planted.[​IMG] One of my fondest memories growing up was my parents large garden.::[​IMG]

    You got it all going on man! [​IMG] Every year my garden gets bigger and more exciting in my head during winter months only to have it destroyed by freak cold spells, armadillos or some other unknown foe. [​IMG]
