RE: how does your garden grow?

Your peppers are big, mine are half that size. Although the banana peppers are big.




someone will probably have a field day with those words.

RE: how does your garden grow?

the pumpkins have taken over the side yard too! Smiley_emoticons_skeptisch

and it's early, but apples are starting to turn red.

i have cherry tomatoes, but don't like them very much. the beefsteaks are great though.
and if anyone wants some damn cucumbers, just send me your address!Smiley_emoticons_razz

(i took these pics a couple hours ago.)

...why don't squirrels and groundhogs eat cucumbers??

here are today's tomatoes, i have never tasted better! HOW in hell do they call those hard things in the stores tomatoes??

and here are some tiny baby butternut squash i just had to go collect off the ground because the goddamn borer worms cut them off the vines!! i am so pissed off! i LOVE them and they would have grown and stored well all winter. i still have a few out there. these are only a couple inches long.

Maggot...i am going to go cut to dry the GIGANTIC monster sage soon, you need to come down and get some for the winter! bring the truck. for cucumbers. Smiley_emoticons_biggrin

RE: how does your garden grow?

we're fucked here this year....shit weather (cold, rainy, cloudy) until 4th of July and on the verge of frost at night already. I'm not going to grow shit in seven weeks. It's planted, it just never took off this year...two friggin' lemon cukes and nothing else. Thank Dog I don't need to rely on it...52

RE: how does your garden grow?

here is my son's giant ugly pumpkin...it should make an ugly jack-o-lantern! the apple is for scale.
i don't rely on the garden for food either Luke, it's simply for fun and nice to pick your own. it probably costs more to grow your own veggies! but gives a sense of satisfaction.
my damn sunflower is now 20 feet tall!! and no flower! i keep thinking of jack and the beanstalk! hahaha

RE: how does your garden grow?

squirrels, don't even get me started on the black squirrel relocation program of 2010.

It's the first year in many that I haven't done a vegetable garden. Fortunately my neighbor grows a huge garden (it may as well be a small farm) and supplies us with every thing.


Maybe I'll make a squirrel thread if it seems appropriate.

Lady Cop, have you ever tried making pickles?

small cucumbers are best and if you have that many, daily pickings can fill a crock very fast.

Have you ever seen the English black squirrels?

When I come back I will make a squirrel thread, promise!
