         Nice beans kids! 

  Wonder @fishinwrench how his cabbage is doing?

Interesting turn of events.  For some reason the whole cabbage program got scrapped.  Kinda out of character for them to get kids all hyped up about something and then announce "Nevermind we're not doing that", but that's the way the little one says it went down.  

We'll do it anyway, but we are gonna pick something other than cabbage.  My vote is for Watermelon or some Pumpkins.

            Probably because of the unscrupulous cheater. I bet if the winning was looked over closely there was a plug cut out and sinkers loaded in then plugged before the weigh in. What would a limit of cabbage look like I wonder?  :) . But we are all glad you will be contributing to the gardening thread Wrench. Anybody that can overhaul an Evinrude can grow amazing vegetables I bet,

Great, walleye fishing coming up and you guys have me worrying about my dang garden.  Need a couple truck loads of dirt, but not likely to happen, but I can add some bags to my cold frame and get it covered.  Asparagus gets to stay since it's pretry low maintenance and away from the garden, strawberry bed is also away from garden but spend a lot of time rehabbing it last year, so will add some new plants as well.  The garden itself get maters, squash, cukes and canteloupe, the rest of it usually gets some pollinators mix tossed on it and then a healthy dose of benign neglect.

That smells of a parent problem. Like somebody calling somebody else a cheater. Which they probably were 😄

Not so much.  We have cherry tomatoes that come up on their own every year and do great no matter what.  And Jalapenos seem to do well for me.  Never had much success growing anything else on purpose.

There's a farmers market just up the road that always has delicious veggies, and at a cost that makes trying to grow your own more expensive than buying them.  So why even bother?   We are only doing it so the kids can learn how it's done, and to give them an extra "chore".

I figure I'll simplify this year.

Frankly everything last year had me to stretched out and everything suffered.

Got a spot on the side of my house I may be able to do some stuff with a little soil amending  and digging out the old stuff.

Going to focus on herbs a lot more this year. we use a ton of them, grow some and always have to end up buying some any way.

May do some more flower growing this year. My house faces south and no shade for the afternoon sun that has burned up pretty much all of our landscaping and grass for a couple years now. Anyone know of something that absolutely LOVES sun and doesn't make me sick every time I get my water bill?

Going to probably be heavy on tomatoes again. May do some different peppers, maybe some hot exotic stuff. I've enough jerk marinade made from last years scotch bonnets that I won't need those again. Probably some jalapenos, fish peppers, thai chilis, 

Need to start my bakers creek order.

Going to try a small raised bed for tomatoes and peppers this year. Not sure that Charli is going to allow it though. I'm sure she will like to chew on those balls growing on that plant. Maybe the peppers will teach her a lesson.
