    I like to use Cotton seed hulls and sometimes get some cotton.

    So how's everyones garden looking? I think we started too late.
    Mines looking fair but not putting out much.
    Started some watermelon on the ground next to the fence, got a small one starting.

    Looks great, Tim! You'll just have a late crop. I got stock tanks to make raised garden beds, but have decided to wait until next season for it. I put in an orchard instead, and wish that I had done it years ago.

    Good looking beds...I am working to redo mine using the same system and corner blocks you have. Haven't planted a single thing this year so you are wayyyyyyy ahead of me.

    A wee bit on the wild side at present, but we're hauling in veggies every other day.. It has been quite productive and has kept the wife very busy.. On a good note we'll have plenty of quality food with what we've done this year.. There's 1 Yukon gold tater pictured as the wife is very eager to know what's under all that poo poo hay.. We've got apples and pears on the trees we put in when we bought the place.. We're kick'en tail on the food front.. 20200709_194534.jpg 20200709_194431.jpg 20200709_194426.jpg

    If I had to depend upon my garden, I'd starve to death.

    Mine has done well all year.

    Made pickles Saturday, had already canned some salsa. Blanching and freezing Okra, snap peas. Peas about done with the heat getting up there. Heat is also affecting the Brandywine tomatoes, all other tomatoes thriving. Onions are finally falling over, will dry those out pretty soon. Squash is taking over the entire north side of the main bed. A few little watermelons on on the south side of that same bed. Been a fun garden year.

    I will get some pics to share.
