Well, they're kinda leggy and a lot of colors other than green so not giving up, probably more like misery loves company... :rotflmao:

While I was at FF yesterday I got stocked up for my fall veggie gardening. Got white globe, cherry belle & watermelon radishes, mesclun mix, arugula, bib lettuce, & 3 kinds of snap peas. Ample room that has gone unplanted so hopefully between now & mid-July there will be an opportunity to seed it down. If not, it's ready to go for next spring.

Got to FF today and bought another Sunsugar tomato plant. I think I will try it in a container of some sort.

found a cuke about 4 inches long to a bit ago. some baby ones to. do have some maters hanging, and after closer review i believe those sickly maters maybe coming around!!!!! :happy1:

noticing the dill is getting there, as well as heads forming on the kalarabi. in about 2 weeks i'm gonna be pulling and seeing what the carrots are doing. onions sure look good too!!!!! but they dont really need all this water.

i konw this was brought up in the past, but does this Trimec have a life span???? either that or all this moisture has got every weed seed droped the last 5 years sprouting........good grief!!!!! :confused: :doah:

Think we've talked about the lifespan on chemicals too but as along as it's stayed thawed & isn't all salted out, it should still be good. Weeds are having a banner year with all the rain. The number of weed seeds in the soil in places can be incredible. One year of missed weed control can replenish the seed bank for years to come whether it's a lawn, garden or agricultural cropland. Most weeds have a built in survival mechanism that allows a %-age of the seed to lie dormant for a period of several years. That %-age and the number of years the seed can remain dormant varies from species to species. It's one of the variables that makes weed control so challenging. This year, along with getting stuck while spraying!  :doah: 

Some positive notes on the gardening front at the ranch. My replant zucchini is coming up. Supposed to be 50 days to maturity so we'll see. Also cuke seedlings in the last hill of those I stabbed in. I see evidence of a few string beans emerging here and there so finners crossed. One bad thing: I see the SnoSweet tree has a broken limb on it. Hadn't seen that until I pulled out of the driveway this a.m. Was some wind yesterday with the thunderstorm that went thru while I was at the lake. Bummer. It had some die-back from something a few years ago and rallied well after cutting the dead limbs out of it. It's really loaded with apples.  :sad:

Thanks dotch, yea I'm not sure how that jug of Trimec was stored, I took it from mom's and I'm sure it has been frozen.  It does seem to work some and it's not all salty as you call it. I suspected with all the rain that the weeds are flourishing.  :confused:

Two things rather are really prospering this year are weeds and rabbits. The cottontail population must be really high.

I agree. Between the hills of vine crops, it's almost solid purslane. Bunnies all over but so far, they're leaving the garden alone. Probably doesn't look good enough to eat yet. Poppy likes exercising them too. If our ratty looking peppers produce anything I'll be amazed.

We have a lot of purslane in our garden boxes too.  No rabbits around here for years.

Here is a shot of our Elderberrys.  That is all the bigger the fruit gets.  They turn darker as they ripen.  In our east grove whenever we clear old trees the Elderberrys take over.  We like them.

Interesting Barry. A lot of the elderberries here are in full bloom right now. Smell really good when you happen to get downwind of them. Too many skeeters to even think about looking at the garden right now. However, using my spotting scope, I can see the 4 rows of string beans I planted on June 30th are coming on strong from the house. Planted them extra thick. Wasn't taking any chances on the weather after what we'd been thru. Looks like almost all of them came up this time. Helps when they don't have water running across them I guess.  :coffee:

Well that didn't last long. The bunnies nailed my sunflower patch. Was impressed the other day seeing all the rows of seedlings coming up so nicely. Looked at it again this morning and there are only scattered plants left. Could turn into a varmint version of American Sniper... :coffee:
