    I am so jealous!! you guys are already harvesting stuff and barely have stuff planted. My corn is about 2 inches tall. Hopefully it will grow and I will get some ears off of it before it starts getting cold. My neighbor said that corn around here get 2 or three feet tall and dies. Bad soil I guess. The top soil came from a land fill and I believe it. When I was clearing out a space for my garden you would not believe the garbage that I dug out. Mostly metal things, even a metal corvette car. (put that one up for the baby to play with in a couple of years) Also my cherry bushes seem to be doing really well. They all have new leaves sprouting and I think that they have even grown an inch or two. woohoo! Even if nothing grows well, I think I will have a great area all cleared out and conditioned for next year.

    Also, can anyone give me a good idea to start a mulcher? I really want to reduce and reuse some of my kitchen waste.

    Leaves are a good mulch. Put your kitchen vegetation scraps in a compost bin! I'm also sending you a pm real quick!

    I put the pumpkins plants (grown from seed) into the garden and they seem to be loving it.
    Also rucola, chives and basil.

    Today I got a few cucumber plants around a new compost circle I set up.
    Also a few pole beans, thyme & rosemary plants.

    Yesterday we did beets, corn, cucumbers & bush beans from seeds.

    I'm thinning out raspberry plants, catnip, cilantro & jerusalem artichokes to
    pass on to another grower.

    With the warm weather & few days of rain we had last week, everything is popping up all over.

    Hoping for an good growing season & an abundant harvest!

    I got 2 free garlic bunches yesterday that are wanting to grow real bad. Took them apart and got 35 bulbs and put them in the ground this afternoon. Also planted 6 cauliflower plants. Got the hubby some flowers to put in the flower bed out front. Also got 6 more tomato plants that hopefully can go in tonite. I believe this brings our head count for tomatoes to 42 plants, 7 varieties. And then the 1 patio tomato which already has some nice tomatoes on it, on the deck. Our garden is 3 times the size of last years.
    We got peas, 3 kinds of onions, sweet corn, radishes, carrots, brocoli, cabbage, cauliflower, 3 varieties peppers, pumpkins, cucumbers, 3 kinds potatoes, tomato, summer and winter squash.
    So far we have harvested a few radishes, and one onion
    I am super impressed with how the potatoes, peas, and onions are growing.

    Last year we only had 8 tomatoes, 6 peppers, a few cukes, 2 rows green / yellow beans, winter squash, and some sunflowers.

    Goal around here to concentrate on more permanent flowers.
    Been thinking about maybe blueberries, and some strawberries.

    We invested in a new rototiller last year. A very good investment for us

    Didn't get anything planted but I harvested some more rhubarb. Made rhubarb/strawberry jam with this batch. Hope to get some more tomorrow and get a pie in the freezer. I ate the other one......it didn't make it to the freezer.

    Just wanted to share about Jim's garden. He has many, many tomato plants,sweet peppers, corn, shallots, potatoes, pumpkins, radishes, cukes, chives, and probably more things I can't remember.
    He cut some Rhubarb yesterday & made sauce.
    His flowers are lovely. The Iris are huge, also the large Orange Poppies. The Wegelia is in full bloom and beautiful.
    He lost the Viburnum bush to some type of insect.
    He is most happy working in his garden.

    Hope everyone has a great day....Liz
