    Sounds like y'all got some good stuff growing. I love them fresh veggies
    Scott, I love them peppers too. I bet you got some good cooking at your house.
    I'm growing weeds. LOL. Got a yard full of them. Nice and healthy. I dont even have to water them There producing bout twice a week. I mow em and 3 days later, there up again. LOL.
    I did plant a couple tomato plants. I can eat fresh tomato's like an apple. Good stuff. Had a garden few years back. Hadn't done it again since tiller went down. Plus, like Terry ,
    we got a lot of clay in my yard. Makes it hard to grow things.
    I know a couple who has a farmer's market at their place. They do a very good job on growing , and a fair price for the product. Get all my other stuff from them.
    We bag cream and pulp hull peas, pinto beans, chop onions. Another lady makes us hot and sweet canned squash, relish. I think we're going to can tomato's this year.
    Always good eating this time of year

    Good luck growing

    ROCKS, they grow like crazy here. Every time it rains more pop up outta the ground. :roll_eyes:

    I sure miss my garden spot when I lived up north. But hey the fishin is way better here....

    I'm going to have to get a dump truck full of soil and make raised beds in order to grow veggies here. I do grow a few tomatos in planters.
    So we grow flowers, ya lots of them in planters and also have good luck with hostas in the (ya you guessed it) rock garden....

    Looks like we have a lot of gardeners here. Normally everything I put water on dies, but the last couple years I've done real well with 'maters. The only problem is, last year I planted several plants at the same time and the all came in at once. I didn't have all the stuff for canning so I was giving them away to any one who would take them. My bell peppers came out about the size of lemons or smaller. I don't know what happened to them.

    just an FYI in case you didnt know...
    when choosing varieties to plant in your garden ones that are classified "determinate" usually have their fruits come to maturity and then are done. the "indeterminate" ones will keep producing a slower but steady stream of ripe fruit till the heat usually shuts them down. i prefer the indeterminate ones but the caveat to them is the plants keep growing too and can get big and a hassle to deal with.
