Been checking to see what's coming in, and low and behold there's squash! So guess what I have in my salad today??? Also, arugula and kale still, and fresh radishes! Love radishes, they are so FAST to grow! (28 days to harvest!) And they are good for you, too! Can't wait for the green beans, maybe this weekend i'll be able to eat a few! Hope your gardens are all producing some great produce, too! have a great day!

Hi everyone! Haven't written in a while - been pretty busy what with vacations, grandkids and such....not to mention the garden! Speaking of garden, I have baby collards, broccoli, spaghetti squash, spinich, cabbage and kale.... ! There is no time to rest yet; we still have food to grow! Seed us coming in hot and heavy, the hyacinth bean and lavender moonflower are especially abundent this year. Also morning glories of unbelievably rich colors this year, and white cyprus vine and marigold. My marigolds look like BUSHES, not plants, this year....turns out i planted them over the septic tank! ha! So that old rumour is true......! you can see some of my pics from my garden and produce on my facebook page, if you are interested. Look up and "like" debbie's garden in Dallas, Georgia. http://www.facebook.com/?ref=home#!/pages/debbies-garden/70108898736 Everyone have a great day! debbie

Today was another glorious warm, sunny spring day! I was able to plant some moonvine, hyacinth bean, squash, nasturtiums and pumpkin seed. Also transplanting more succulents and potting them up for the plant sale. I have a lot more plants than i ever imagined, it's amazing when you dig up your yard how many plants there are after you divide everything! I do need to hurry and pick some greens, as the little worms that are spiraling out of the sky on silk strings are attacking my collards! Have a great week, everyone, and enjoy the weather! debbie

The rain has cleared out for a while, and I managed to catch enough rainwater to water for a while if necessary. When the sun came out this afternoon, I knew I had to get in the garden and plant! I planted some squash seedlings (mixed varieties), and some Better Boy Tomatoes and Sweet Banana Peppers i couldn't resist buying even though i have my own seedlings! We'll see whose do better, theirs or mine! Theirs are a bit more mature, and I can never stand the wait to get a fresh tomato or banana pepper! I also planted some Kentucky Wonder pole beans, and some MORNING GLORIES to round things off. And another thing, the gloves never stay on, does anyone else have that problem?! I love the feel of the soil.....the only thing I regret is having to dig the dirt out from under the nails! LOL! More later, happy gardening!
