Calling it a day Just got in the carrots and beets  Tiller back together and rode the bronco for about 2 hrs on the beds.. It's time for a dose of Vitamin C and disinfectant ...AKA Screwdriv

Its nice to see everyone's garden updates! I am with @Fish 24/7   The tomato stalk thickness this season is unreal.   I have plants now over three foot tall and over and inch thick in across the

Update, a watering tip and some fun,     Tomatoes getting big and are drinking lots of water. The reservoir on the self wicking tubs holds five gallons more of less. There is no waste or overwate

Yep that's what I expected to find, but it was gone when I went out to see.  We had lots of them around the house when I was a kid, but I haven't seen one for many years.   I don't have garter snakes here either, and they were thick everywhere when I was a youngster. 

Around our place it's pretty much all black snakes, ringnecks, copperheads. With the occasional speckled King snake and hog nose.   Had a rather large, fat, solid gray snake get away from me earlier this spring.  Not sure what he/she was.  Looked like a Boa to be honest.....and a neighbor had a couple of those at one time so it's a definite possibility.

You hate toads!?  I thought an outdoorsman like yourself would like toads and frogs. 

When they are hopping around like a plague of locusts all summer, they get annoying.  Mower gets a lot of them.

     Pat picked again this morning before she went to work. This bunch and then not pictured is half this much from past picking. I unloaded the dehydrator and sliced and reloaded it. I would say this has been our best tomato year so far.

All the snakes are more scarce than in the 50-60s and even in the '80s, we have an overabundance of hawks and eagles that feast on snakes

             Good Grief! Another picking this morning. Cherry tomatoes are manageable. Big tomatoes not so much. Still dehydrating and giving away. More salsa making tomorrow. Picked the remaining cucumbers today and Pat pulled the vines so we can prepare to plant Fall Bok Choy.

The two 🍉 🍉 I have are not getting any bigger. The vine has seen better days. I think harvest is nearing.

Cocktail tomatoes are going wide open now. Picking off 14 plants every other day. Plenty to go around.

The Belgium Pinks are re loading for the third time. Pretty much all the fruit below mid height has been picked. Now we wait....
