That all looks great, you make me feel so behind, but I guess it's just the different locations :rolling:

I put the last of my tiny tomato plants out today to replace the ones the frost got. Tried an experiment by planting them with a fabric ground cover to try and get away from late blight problems. If the blight comes from the spore bearing dirt getting splashed up on the plants during watering/rain, the ground cover should help solve it. To be scientific, I left a control group without protection in the next row. We'll know if there's a difference come September.

I wanted to do plastic mulch this year but didn't get around to it.

You guys down in Texas have got more rain than you would normally get in two years.
I can understand being discouraged, but do not give up.
You did very well last year and will in years to come.
You also get a chance to plant a winter garden.
When mine is done I have to wait for spring and plan all winter.
I had to plant corn twice, and finally have a stand of corn about 1 1/2 inches tall. The other little patch I planted the same day did not germinate?
I think I need a different planter?

I'm more discouraged with the market here so I might give up market growing until I move back to Kentucky next year just grow enough to eat and freeze.

My uncle's friends are hosting next weekend if I can sell enough there I will keep at it. The watermelons are producing now I don't think they will be ready by 4th of July but that would been a money maker there.
