I wondered about that too Mike.  He may not even have a garden this year but is just posting pics of stuff from the store...   :rotflmao: :rotflmao:

Slapped in 32 hills of the larger vine crops last nite, hoping it would rain. That didn't happen but at least there are 8 hills of buttercup squash, 8 hills of pumpkins & 16 hills of decorative gourds planted. Working with one of my clients on a project where he's growing Indian corn and corn to make decorative bundles to sell to retailers & online. Actually his wife is in charge of the selling part and we're just responsible for growing & harvesting it. Some of my gourds if they materialize may be sold that way. Looking for a corn binder so we can make corn bundles without having to manually manufacture them. I've grown this kind of stuff for years but not on the scale he's talking about. It's been fun so far.

Finally got some black dirt to finish covering the area where it was dug up to replace the septic tank. Last year my son brought some dirt and spread it with a skid steer but we were short. I had 12 yards delivered yesterday so it looks like I have another project. Probable will add some to the gardens as well as fill any holes or ruts in the lawn.

Lol! Yesterday I noticed all the trellis stuff was looking kinda weak. It's not mulched like the rest so I mixed up some Miracle-Gro and fed everything,  today it all looks much better,  musta been the heat.  Anywho we just had a good rain shower come thru,  the yard needed that big time!

Planted Jet Star, Celebrity +, Better Boy, & La Roma tomatoes last nite, 4 of each variety. Plunked in 4 King Arthur peppers & 4 jalapenos as well. The wife may be bringing me another 4 bell peppers of some kind. Have a yellow pear, a smaller cherry & a grape tomato left to plant in the small garden close to the house. A couple zucchini & a spaghetti squash left to transplant then we should be good in that dept. Watered everything in that was planted early this a.m. Saw a striped gopher a couple times while I was planting last nite. Got the blunderbuss out but never saw him again. Imagine that.  :scratch:

Not to late. But you probably don't have bottom heat if you start them in a pot. With all this heat, the ground is warmer than a pot. 6 or so seeds in an elevated circle and thin to the strongest 3 plants when they have 2 true baby leaves. Use a hoe to make a 15 inch or so circle 2-3 inches high. Water them immediately.

I usually put some 10-10-10 garden fertilizer on the ground first, then using a hoe pull up the ground into that 15 inch circle.

This is also how I plant Squash, Zucchini, and Cucumbers.

Still picking away at the garden. Got a couple zukes in a few days ago along with 12 rows of sweet corn. Planted four more nice bell peppers last nite & a spaghetti squash. Put in 6 hills of cukes closer to the house in the small garden this morning. Easier access to water that way. Wife's ankle still not back to full capacity yet so had her blessing rather than planting it to flowers as she normally does. Indian corn needs to be planted & will put in some carrots yet.

I was gonna aks ya that when your were gonna prune on the maters. Ours are running between 2-3' tall, was out and helped a few limbs over the next ring. The mulch really seems to help keep the moisture,  they are growing fast , although some of the peppers seem to be lagging.
