Your garden looks great Daniel. Like dad mentioned we have a lot of rocks that we are growing. Surprisingly some stuff is still coming up pretty decent. We didn't plant in nice straight lines either but our little girl had fun planting the seeds LOL.

Daniel those broccoli look great. How do you grow them that fast? We were advised by local garden supply places to not plant until after June 10 because the ground is still cold due to an almost total lack of sun this spring. We are going to get it done today and tomorrow. They are forcasting a mostly sunny weekend.

Brian, I'm just a tad southern of you, so growing season here starts earlier, much earlier. That said, it turned wet & cool after putting these plants out, and was afraid they would drown, which they did suffer, but pulled through.

Here's some updated pics of my garden. Lost the furthest row of corn due to hotwire going dead & calves reached through & had a buffet! LOL The furthest 4 rows left are all tasseled & forming ears. The closest 5 rows are about 2 weeks behind the furthest rows. My green beans are covered with blooms & 2" green beans, so won't be long! My tomatoes are another story. As you can see, 2 plants on each end are doing great, while 8 plants inbetween look whithered. All were sprayed for fungus, and all came from the same batch. Go figure.

And any bad harvest & leftover plant material....these guys are happy to consume for us! LOL

Thanks! I had said earlier that hail had destroyed the squash plants, and DID appear they were ruined at the time. Laid flat to the ground, whithered looking, with many leaf stalks torn off, ripped, or twisted open. Plus holes shredded in the leaves. But they revived & came back strong! Baby squash all over!

Green beans "just" beginning to give up some beans. We picked what little were ready on one row this morning, and may get the other row tonight just before dark. Hot as heck out now. The bean plants are covered with blooms & tiny beans, so the big pickings are coming soon. Couple 1st little squash in there too. Wife couldn't wait! lol

Well, after milking & mowing the farmyard area, I helped Teresa pick the 1st real picking of green beans. About 10 gallons of them. Man how our backs ache! Gonna take a while to snap this bunch. This is just the start too!

Teresa & I just picked another partial picking. About 11 gallons so far this morning, with likely another 5 to 7 gallons left to pick tonight. We'll be "beaned out" by the time the weekend is over!
