Well, we have gotten some much needed rain in the last day and a half. Rained last evening and then again most of teh afternoon today. Stopped at the local ACE Hardware and the wife picked up the rest of the tomato plants she wants to plant  along, with cabbage, culliflower, strawberries, yellow banana peppers, green beans and zucchini. Was going to plant tomorrow but they are calling for frost here on Friday night and Saturday night. Will wait for Sunday to plant and get it going. GOing to put up a Rabbit fence to keep those rascals out this year. Last year they ate a lot of the tops of our garden stunting and in some cases killing them al together. We will post some pictures of our progress. Thanks. Roger.

I got everything planted last weekend.  I had a new theme for planting this year...if it won't grow in a cage, I ain't planting it....at least for this year.  I planted some tomatoes, 2 kinds of peppers, squash, okra, brocolli, 2 kinds of cucumbers, cantaloupe, and watermelon.  Still have the pumpkin to plant yet.   My dogs are 1 year old (Molly, the black one) and 5 months old (Truman), and digging currently is a favorite pastime.  The sweet corn spot will just have to wait until next year....

Yes James, nice garden.

 

I'm sorry to hear about your rabbit problems.  They, and the other varmints in the garden can really devastate things.

 

Glad to hear you are just about done.

naw, the rabbits are not a problem....my dogs like to dig...and dig....and dig.  Molly is a lab/terrier mix.  she digs profusely.  Truman is a lab/boxer/?mix.  He just does what Molly does....with MUCH bigger paws.  He is 5 months old, weighs 62 lbs.
