Half of the garden is in as of today. Still getting some slow starters (from seed indoors) acclimated to full sun and then they'll get planted.

As usual I'm very heavy on hot peppers with 12 different varieties, as well as 8 different varieties of tomato, green, red, yellow, golden and chocolate bell peppers, lettuce, crooked neck squash, zucchini and corn.

Nothing better than fresh home grown produce.

Anyone else have one out yet?

Planted some tomatoes in buckets on the deck over the weekend. That's it for this year. Maybe next year I'll get some wind in my sails and build a raised bed to plant in, but this year didn't happen.

I've picked about 5gallons of green beans over the last few weeks. And looked at the carrots and they are doing well. The heat is starting to get to the garden. I'm watering every day, but it hasn't rained here in almost two months...

Looking good TheBayratt!

We have almost biblical amounts of rain here for the last 2 months. I had to wait, wait, and then wait some more for my ground to be dry enough to till.

Well, we just got about 10 minutes of rain. It was a slight drizzle.... hopefully should get more on saturday. My plants and grass need some free watering BAD!
