    Now have twenty crops growing. Peas, kolhrabi, garlic, onions, asparagus, tomatoes, basil, parsley, marigolds, peanuts, cucumbers, sunflowers, jalapenos, cantelope, ginger, potatoes, sweet potatoes, sage, dill, yellow crookneck squash, zucchini, patty pan squash, and butternut. Oops, that's twenty three. Oh and apples. Beans, corn, watermelon, and okra still await my husband digging up the lettuce bed.

    Picked some young (read not quite ready even though the wife was) snow peas and cherry tomatoes. Pulled some sweet basil, cilantro, mint (three kinds), and chives for the salad (that contained the snow peas and tomatoes). Watered everything, especially the two apple trees that are loaded with apple-ings; thinned both trees before deep watering. Put down some Preen around the acre as we MIGHT get some rain this weekend (yeah, right), and then placed a sprinkler to water THAT in. Finally took some time to clean and sharpen garden tools. That's all.

    This is called "square inch" gardening in my yard.

    Produces lots of peas or snow peas.

    Those old tomato cages keep the dogs OUT of the raised beds.

    The gourds are for my wife's crafts; the mint is for my tea.

    Crazy aren't they? And they don't even take very good care of them either. We buy at our local coop.

    Watered the garden in our 90°heat but didn't get to finish because it started raining. 1 1/2" later I wasn't too worried about it any more. Lol.

    I started 90 % of my own plants...in my basement using a large dog kennel warmer think mega size seed starting mat, and an oxygen tent my daughter had to use when she had RSV..I also buy plants from our local high schools FFA which sells them to raise money they are much cheaper and bigger than the ones at box stores, I have bought a few from a local farm store but they were only .89 for a 4 pack and taken care of.
