    What are you all growing this year? Trying any new methods, plants, etc. ? Excited about the season? I am!!!!

    I even put my poor chickens in a run while the plants are growing and will let them out when the plants are big enough to survive the damage! Love my garden AND my chickens, but hated confining them to a run, even though it is fairly large at approx. 65 ft. x 10 ft. Just kind of sad to watch them walk the fence, looking for a way out!

    I did and I hope they start a link like the one here where you can check your posts without having to subscribe to the topic. I like getting an easy access to questions I have asked. You think they will have that soon? Maybe they have it and I'm just not seeing it? [​IMG]

    We have corn, okra, cucumbers, tomatoes, potatos and watermalon, we had peas but they all died out of nowhere. My husband is wanting to double the size of the garden in the fall. Happy growing everyone!

    Irish potatoes, snap beans, tomatoes, purple hull peas, and enough squash to feed a third world country! LOL! We need to replant watermelons as we had a late cold snap that killed them.
