    I got out some garden this week. I planted some bell pepper, cabbage, broccoli and tomato starts. Then I got home from fishing last night and Kelli told me she caught the neighbor kid beating em down with a stick. Vern

    Sounds like the neighbor kid needs a good bustin. I got mine out on Monday and then the rains came. the whole garden is flooded and i'm going to have to replant.

    Man, this is just not seemin to be the Spring for gardening! :confused2:
    Sorry about your plants, Vernon and Joel!

    That's alot of work to have to do all over again.
    I sure think that neighbor kid's parents need a little talk, too!
    Bad enough when the weather backfires, but deliberate destruction is another matter altogether. Might do that family alot of good to replace any broken plants, especially if that child is the one who gets to replant them (under close supervision). Shoot, maybe he'd discover a love of gardening :cool2: heh... well, ya never know :smile2: Good luck, you two!

    Good grief... Maybe the kids parents should replace your plants and have him replant...

    I managed to plant my bell peppers, wax beans, sweet corn & watermellon that I had started indoors out last night. some critter was sampling the beans when I had them out to harden them before planting so i only have half of what I started. My veggie garden is fenced in after the local rabbit destroyed it last year.

    Our peppers, lettuce, okra, tomatoes, peas, and beans are off to a good start. We tried artichokes (yeah, I know - Illinois artichokes?) and cilantro this year, but neither looks too good. We tossed a few giant pumpkin seeds into an old burn pile and they are starting to come up fast.
