    Corn is also about half way here too. I'm seeing watermelon stands though. Utah grows some great watermelon. I've never been able to get a decent sized one myself, so, don't try now.

    Sloppy Joes here tonight. My DH loves those things. Actually, anything tomatoy.

    I believe the problem is phosphorous-poor soil?

    So sorry to read this, what awful news. A fellow byc'er lost his wife this week, she battled breast cancer almost 12 years. He and his children took care of her at home the last several months, she died a peaceful death surrounded by her family, just a month after their youngest graduated from high school. They are managing well, and were prepared, but that doesn't erase the sadness and loss. Cancer is such a cruelty. He is lucky to have you there to be his friend in a time of such need.

    Soil where chickens have been is high in phosphorus. Perhaps one can mix the two.

    I had an indepth professional soil sample done this spring on one of my beds where chickens had been. It was so worth the money. It turned out all I needed was a little nitrogen and the phosphorus was a little high.
