Check it out. I really didn't think I was going to be able to do this the first year after the tornado. I am kind of proud but don't mean to toot my own horn ( well yes I do I guess).

That isn't a garden! That's a small farm! Looks great and I'll expect some of that sweet corn on the table at the Sinclair Jam.

Jack - Way to go! City boy like me has no idea how to grow a garden, but sure know how to eat. Bet your home grown corn and beans taste much, much better than the store bought stuff we get in the suburbs. Just another reason for me to visit Tuscaloosa. - Stuart

This rain hittin' you, Moombadaze?? We haven't had that much rain here yet anyways. I'm not an expert at gardening by any means but I manage to hold my own I guess. It does taste good. I've had green beans right off the vine and into the pot. Real good.

Nice stuff. Our weather is way different and way behind where,you are at. I use flower beds to grow simple onions and carrots,and a couple sunflowers,for decoration mostly. I am attempting a few cucumbers,using the heat reflected off the house ,otherwise i would not stand a chance. Looks like watermellon? Cool,definetely would not happen here unless in a green house.

Fresh vegies are great and i miss my moms garden . She was good at it and had more room etc. Now its more just a hobby thing. More for pride i guess. Enjoy just the same..

Real nice garden JMB. Ash's mom is big into a garden every year which means we have tomatoes, corn, squash, zuchini, onions, sweet peppers, and jalapenos coming out our ears!

Butthead beat me to it. My first thought was that I want to see some of that big ole corn at the Sinclair Jam. Hope you get some in by then. I had some on the grill last w/e. Not sure where it was from as somebody else brought it. It was incredibly sweet. Made me miss the midwest for about 5 min.

Nice JMB.

So what could I go put in the ground right now for eatin? I need another hobby.

You can still put anything in the ground right now. Rattlesnake beans do well in the heat. Okra does well also. Just plant and keep it watered

Ok, so I went and bought okra. I'll keep you guys updated. This should be good.

jmb

Cool! Okra will kind of take care of itself. Just keep it weeded while its young and then it will shoot up and go for it. Not to hard to take care of!

I need another hobby.

That's what I was thinking till I took up changing BMW waterpumps and cooling hoses the other day and again today. Ugggghhhh. No time to plant this year. I'll have to scrounge off those that did.

Okra is in the ground. No signs of life. Will report later.

Luckily we have a farmer we visit a mile up the road. Everything is organic and literally half the price to what you would pay in the store.

jmb

Shoot, half price. Sometimes it's better to buy it from him than grow it. Now I did have some birds pluck out some of my okra seed. That made me mad and had to replant the skips. Should come up in about a week. BMW???? I don't think I would want to do a water pump on that now.

Can't seem to catch em'. Okra is doing good now. Takes 3 beers just to water everything.

Shoot, I would just go to him. By the time I get a tractor in here (I don't have one) to disc, Then I have to till. Water Bill, Gas bill and labor, much easier to go to him with those prices.

Heck of a fathers day down in Georgia today gents!

WaterbullDawg,

Are you going to Wolfemans Moomba Jam? I am hopefully going to be there barring no problems. Just curious if you were going

Jack, yes, he is going.

Should he choose to allow his better half dictate ALL his weekend plans, I will personally remove him from this forum.

Ah, cool. I still have to make a reservation at the Fairfield inn. Hoping the wifes health will hold out and make it. I think one of my daughters is going to try and give her a kidney. We want to wait until after the Moomba Jam if we can but we have to see how this will all work out.

Jack, you freaking kill me with setting your priorities. Last year it was:

1) Sinclair Jam
2) Worry about having a heart attack

This year, it's:

1) Sinclair Jam
2) Kidney transplant

Don't get me wrong, I love the way you think, but you better take care of that sweet wife of yours first!

jmb

We are going to be ok Drew. She is not on dialysis quite yet so it should work out. She is getting some kidney infections but they are getting fewer and far between. This is going to be our vacation to your place and we want to make for sure. Sounds like a Moomba problem but we love boats like everyone else. We will work it out.

My daughters begged to put in a garden this year and it's been a fun, family experience. My family had good sized gardens at our home in Ohio, but my Grandparents obviously had a HUGE garden on the farm in PA.

So, we have 2 varieties of tomatoes (4 plants total), a red and a yellow pepper, banana pepper, mild jalepeno pepper, cilantro, beets, okra, carrots, broccoli and onions. It's probably too much in that little, 4x8ft space, but the girls were excited and have been checking it non-stop.

You've inspired me to do one next year. Assuming we have a house by then.

So, check it out now as the season is winding down. Looks like a jungle and this pic is with the 5ft tall ocra plant removed. I should have kept the 'maters better controlled as they overtook the peppers some, but we still got a ton of fresh veggies off this little plot. What a great way to get the kids to try new foods and eat just a bit of healthy food.
