I'm on to my second planting of Radishes, and today I harvested my first kolarobi of the season.

get out of the garden!!!!   bang!!!!!    :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :happy1:

You know how old ladies get attached to their cats. For the life of me I don't know why. When my Mom had a stroke, she called the ambulance then went out the barn and fed her cats in case she wound up in the hospital.  :rolleyes:  :doah:

First harvest of the year! Our new garden this year we have tomatoes, pepper (green and jalapeŮos), snap peas, bush beans, radishes, carrots, onions, beets, cucumbers, chives, dill, and outside the garden we have rhubarb and asparagus. Everything is doing great except the carrots?
We have a 40 acre farm 1/2 mile down the road from the lake place. That is where the garden is.
Not as nice as Glennís or Kenís, but it will get there?
nuttin wrong with that garden coopy!! :happy1:

Yesterday's final score: Dotch 4, Gophers 0. We'd been coexisting nicely since earlier in the season when I'd poisoned some that were digging up the Indian corn & sweet corn. Then they started digging new holes in the small flower garden closer to the house. Filled the holes in and they came right back. Tried drowning them in their new hole with buckets of water. Filled the hole in again. They came right back only this time the hole was smaller. Hadn't actually been able to catch them in the act until yesterday at lunch time. Saw the 1st one, just a little shrimp. Offed him & put the .22 away. Looked out about 5 minutes later, another little shrimp. Got him & put the gun back. Another 5 minutes & there's a larger one starting to dig again. Greased that one out and kept the gun handy. One more larger model appeared. Blasted it and decided I'd better get back to work. Was sure a lot more fun shooting gophers from the air conditioned house than it was tramping around in the fields yesterday. Could still hear one whistling this a.m. so might have to check again this noon.

I just picked some dill that is overtaking parts of our garden.  So do you just cut the root off and then put in gallon ziplock for use when making pickles?

yep, cut it right underneath the head of the dill. Put it in the bag, get as much air out as you can and throw it in the freezer. I've used dill 2 years old out of the freezer.

Thaw it out as you need it  :happy1:

Mine hasn't gotten a head on it yet but had to pull it out of the maters.  I cut off the root and vac packed it.  It really smells strong dill.  We like lots of dill in our pickles.  Should work great.    :happy1: :happy1:

Very nice! That cuke is almost blue-colored... :scratch: :rotflmao:

Got rid of one more gopher the other day at lunch. Can see there's at least one small model left judging by the digging. At least they got the hint (so far) the small garden is a dangerous place to play. Got some sweet corn I stabbed in some gaps a few days ago already coming up. If it makes an ear great, if not at least it helps keep the weeds down. That has really been a battle in this year's garden. Kept them down last year pretty well but the purslane in particular has been a real PITA. Since the rain I see a carpet of what appears to be tiny waterhemp coming so actually need it to dry up a little so I can run the tiller thru it and hoe where needed. Pulled most of the crap out of the beets last nite. Be the last time I grow those damn things for a while. Crummy seed. In two 15' rows I think I have about 15 beets. :doah: I forgot what weak tit, vulnerable plants beets are when they're small relative to stuff like sweet corn, string beans, cukes, squash, etc. There was a reason sugar beets were not on my favorite list when we had to weed and thin them in soil fertility plots. Same deal.
