I just obtained a real nice 4' x 6' steel panel with 3" x 3" squares.  It is white epoxy coated.  Should make a great garden trellis.  SO now I am thinking of planting some pole beans this weekend.  We love green beans but have never planted them before.  Do you think there is time for them to grow up here?

Oh geez are they that much???   :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao:  Just kidding.  I will buy some tomorrow and get it going.  I just watered the garden and we have a few golf sized tomatoes and some pickle sized cukes.  Surprised the heck out of me.  I love cukes and fresh tomatoes.  Will be doing more fried green tomatoes this year.  Last year we finally did them the right way and they were pretty darn good.  AND I want to do Kens green tomato salsa!

I seeded dill one time. I always leave some go to seed in the fall. Comes up all over the place the next year. Usually more than I need. I usually wind up pulling some of it out.

yep KEN W same thing happens here. my grandma used to call stuff that grows at random volunteers. happens with my tomatoes too!!!!

I always let some go to seed, I collect them save it and replant the next spring. I gave what I had left this spring the this General!!!!  so I need to save some more.

I freeze extra dill, ive used it as old as 3 years. doesn't seem to make much of a difference. i'm not canning pickles this year, but will probably do a bushel next year. I still will need some when a pickle my cukes and green beans.

I will buy 40 lbs of little cukes for dill pickles.  We didn't do them last year and finally ran out a few months ago.  40 lbs does 40 qts for us.  We use lots of dill and garlic in them too.

When I was in town late morning got a call from my friend/customer with the rear mounted tiller on his tractor. Wondered if I wanted my new garden area worked up before they put the tiller away. They were moving some stuff around and it wouldn't be out of the way. Sure, I said. Got my business done, picked up my feed, mowed a chunk of pasture & moved the pasture fence so it'll work. Soil tested that area a couple years ago so it should be a good spot. Hopefully he can get it in ahead of the rain. Finners crossed... :cool:

PS - They left about a half hour ago. Worked up a strip about 20' x ~100. We can modify it as we go along but at least it's broken up and we can start making it into our future garden. I need to get another tiller soon. My 20+ year old front tine tiller went bang! earlier this spring... :sad: It had tilled a lot of garden. The tines were worn to a sharp tip. :embarrassed:

No I have never added onions Glenn.  May have to try it in a few jars.

I add onions to everything I can of pickle. Just what the recipes I have call out. Just an idea. I put a slice on the bottom of the jar and one in top. And I eat that too. :happy1:
