Green is nice, but by June I will be over mowing every weekend, LOL.. The garden is doing very well, as long as we keep watering, we should do well this year. It's time to start thinnig out some of the plants started by seeding.

Brian, is your growing season long in the fall too? I guess what I'm wondering if you can double crop lettuce etc?

Our climate in Southern Indiana seems to be in a longer in the fall cycle, like it was 20 to 30 yrs ago. Tempted to try more lettuce, beans etc.

regards, George

Thought I would post a few picture of the garden.

The tomato plants are getting really big and loaded with fruit.

I messed up on my string beans, and didn't get them tied up soon enough. The beans are coming on nicely, hopefully they will go ahead and climb up.

Here is a couple of later Tomatoes plants, They are not as big, but getting a lot of fruit also.

Brian, how do you keep such a clean garden? Mine gets taken over by weeds long before end of season. I do good to tend a garden at all.

I try to get my daughters out there every Saturday morning or Sunday after church and pull a few weeds that come up in the rows. Between the rows, I have about 6" of mulch down, it takes most of the year for the weeds to grow through it.

Great looking garden Brian. I'll be planting in raised beds next year and plan on using soaker hoses like you have set up. Got the grinder running so I'll be able to mulch next year too, which would have been nice this year with all the heat and 30+ mph winds we had. We're headed to Alaska Tuesday for a couple of weeks so just as it really starts to produce we'll be gone. Hope my friend keeps it watered for me. He had a heart attack the middle of Feb. and didn't get to do much for a garden even though I tilled it up for him, so I told him to get what he wanted from it.

OK Brian, let's get this cleared up right now, WORK is a four letter word ending in K and my mother told me not to use those words a long time ago. Seriously now, I'm a retired sheet metal worker out of San Antonio Local Union 67 which also covers the Austin area where I was born and raised. We're going on a cruise and then drop down to the Portland area to visit Linda's cousin and his wife. We'll take the train from Seattle to Portland to see some of the countryside.
