    Default Got my plants in before it gets too hot here:

    I now have all my backyard crops in the ground and they are up and growing.
    I have: tomatoes, yellow squash, black eyed peas, green beans and some scallions. I also planted two muscadine grape vines on my chain link fence. I still have two blackberry vines to get in the ground. I think I might be a little bit busy in the months ahead.

    You go girl! Being in Fl myself, I need to follow suit. I just seem to kill everything, and the thought of all that planting with high hopes, really holds me back. What is it that everyone else has, that I just don't???

    But that'll sure make for a nice size bounty for you. And everything sounds wonderful (except the blackeyed peas .....sorry ) I have muscadines that were planted on our chain link also by the previous owner. They fruited beautifully until I trimmed them back a few years ago, now I only get about couple of quarts from about 150' of fenced vines. I do still enjoy how lush the vines themselves are though. Oh, and btw, I heard the grapes make quite a wine. YUM!

    Can't wait to hear about your progress!

    This is going to be my first year trying to grow anything. I have started a few things and am hoping to get them in the ground this weekend.

    The things I started from seeds look great and are getting big. I did buy a few things from the store already started and some of them don't look so good. A green pepper plant now has some bugs of some sort of the underside of the leaves. The tomatoe plants have some thing on the leaves that makes them now look like something is going through them. Argh. This is going to be harder than I ever imagined.

    Are they doomed? should I separate them from the plants I started from seed that look great?

    I have so much to learn!

    The things I have started from seed are yellow squash, zucchini, cucumbers, bush beans, green onions.

    Enjoy your garden this yr. , how fun to be able to get them in now. I have a few more months as well to wait, there is always a few here who try early but then they have to replant almost every yr as we sometimes get freezes. Good job getting them in right away. Would love pictures once they get going for you.
