Picked my 1st crop. Here's the biggest of the broccoli. I usually grow some mean broccoli heads! These are kinda small. LOL

Nice Broccoli Daniel!

My corn finally started to pop up today. With all the rain we got, everything was planted late

Per the national norm this year. Millions of crop acres are yet to be planted still! Many fields across the US won't get planted at all I'm afraid.

Darn nice looking Broccoli.It should be nice and tender with it being that size.

Wonder if it's to late to plant some Broccoli in my garden.The lettuce isn't doing to well this year.So I have room for something.
My Tomatoes are doing GREAT though.I bought 14 plants this year But I had over 20 Tomato plants come up from last years garden.They're almost big enough to transplant.

With the heat, it's too late for broccoli now, but you can get a Fall crop in later on. I hope to have a Fall broccoli crop also.

Those are some great looking Broccoli Dan! I just started to get my garden plants in today! So far I have 20 Roma plants in the ground and watered in. Tomorrow will probably see the rest going in! I have 12 beefsteak plants and a couple of other assorted varieties that I wanted to try out. Also a few varieties of squash and a couple different melons too!

Here's the rest of my garden. Certainly not weed free, but mine never is. Almost always have a great crop, if Mother Nature helps out.
Looks like I grow rocks too, but there was an old sewer line under this one end.

That broccoli looks very nice, Dan. I like your garden! I wish I had a dairyman close by that would bring me a load of "fertilizer"!

That garden looks really great Daniel. With all of your other chores it's a wonder you have time to make a garden. We do have a nice rock garden also. The plot we picked turned up quite a few stones. From a previous photo of our place ,there was a small parking spot in part of our garden. We continue to collect them and will add topsoil before next year.

My broccoli got a late start so It will probably only have smaller heads again like last years.

Garden looks good Daniel.
