not yet
they look pretty good as far as blooms and green ones.
gf told me to pick some green cherry tomatoes and let them get ripe on the kitchen window

I’ll try and take some photos of the maters

watermelons are blooming and there are a few baseball sized ones

the drought has taken a heavy toll on the dry land farmers around here..not so much the ranchers , they haul hay if there ain’t no pasture

here is one of the hands on the Diamond ranch that rents a room from my gf

she reminds me of Teeter on that show Yellowstone.

I see your cleaning up your middles. They look real nice.
thanks and thanks for the tip on the Pygan spray...knocked them aphids dead in their tracks

those are the ecsd x ogers and they will get to 10 foot but I hope the feckers finish here or I’ll have to tarp them and put in a space heater...we need this medicine this year because there is no guarantee that any dispensaries will be open after November...

rhe entire United States of America may be shut down by November 5

we have so e Bodhi gear , snow leopard , nice short squaty plants that are wider than they are tall , thRees some aphids on them but there are also a zillion ladybugs so I’m gonna let them ladies do their thing before I spray , maybe just one more application of Spinosad before harvest

heres the snow dragons about a month ago? and they are not much taller but twice as wide now

That dandy thats staying in your old ladies room looks pretty fresh to me. If he wore rose lip gloss it would highlight his hair for his utube video. heck he isnt even dirty. Stay away fro him spinal crcker, his mom made them chinks for him last winter.

He aint no cowboy.

I am ready to go w the jars, been selling to farmers markets for years, this time we are gonna put it all in the cellar.

As barefoot steve would say, 'ganj on boys'

You know the guy.

its just like that spinal cracker. We will be re-shut before its over. Some of these assholes say 5-7 waves, whats that 2-3 years.

I gathered me enough money to get me a country place in czech republic to retire, now im banned I guess.

I will gather more money and get a fancier place then. Im good at gathering.

Fuck them guys.

Nice work old son.

Its when the plants go into flower,stretch, and make bud. You have to support their flower weight, or it all ends up laying in the mud.

Dont worry they know how to do it.

looks like alot of work, and a good payday to me.

Nothing is free.

we use a nylon or plastic netting and wrap the plants

here are a few examples


.I’ve grown plants about this tall down in Oklahoma back in the bootlegging days

my plants should end up similar to these below

BDC1964F-8622-4B29-903C-30B7EA60EFE7.jpeg



I wish I had a few of these


3F70E24E-1A3C-421C-9ED3-444DA2E59D89.jpeg




mine will look similar to this

those heavy colas like cooper spoke about

Gotta love the times of year when the gardens help decide what goes into our meals, or how well we relax, depending what's growing. :D

Isn't that the truth. I got a little melancholy today thinking about when the garden goes to rest for the season.

Yeah it's a weird feeling. With a little luck, at least this year I will have some canned goods from the season into part of the winter to hold me over. Toughest for me is when I see the bluebirds all flock up together knowing they are about to leave and I won't see them for so long.

Have to start getting creative with the tomatoes now. Couple days ago I made a SAŁATKA (Polish word for 'salad', as in potato salad etc. Phonetically pronounced, (suh-watt-kuh) and played a little "kill the closet" wontonly trowing in some eggs, tomatoes, peppers, black beans, pecans etc
Just just now I spur of the moment took some roasted red pepper hummus mixed it with equal an ounce lemon cilantro hummus and plain yogurt. Then I cut up one of my lemon Boy tomatoes, stirred and snackef with kettle cooked potato chips. It was pretty darn good. But I'm light-years from being fussy and will eat nearly anything ithat doesn't move.

Mom's green peppers are flexing big-time. I don't know if there are any amendments in the soil to speak of. She started planting in the new area couple years ago and this started at a time when she had nearly no time for the garden so a lot of stuff has been quite lackluster. So I was pretty shocked to see this stout little beefcake.

I'd better report in here. Been a while. The garden was looking decent, though maybe not glorious, through May and June. Then my mom passed away in early July and I had to be gone a week and a half. That's a week and a half of hot weather without watering the garden, and without weeding the garden. Needless to say, it got away. The tomatoes were pretty fried, not much left there. But we are still managing a few cucumbers, the beans are doing all right, getting a few zucchini (those damn things would survive nuclear war), and the corn - though a bit small - is producing decently and is very good. And there are a few squash and melon on the vine, so it is not a total loss. But not nearly as good as we would like.

What kind of peppers you got there cracker?
supposed to be a sweet banana but the skin is pretty tuff...will end up as seasoning for soups

we planted 50-75 pepper plants but a freak storm which dropped reps to the 30’s wiped out 73.351 % of the peppers.....luckily we brought the to,aloe plants indoors...this was back in April

heres some shots

Funny I hadn't even thought of letting mind reading until the other day when I noticed one starting to turn.
Why do your mind gruesome that he called Dragon tongue's that looked similar.

The cherries are looking prolific.

As I was scrolling through your pictures I was nodding in approval when I hit the first picture with the colas shooting everywhere I actually said oh my God out loud.

Sometimes if I have a good supply of tomato to use up and some spicy peppers and onions I will make shakshuka! Basically poached eggs over a spicy tomato sauce. I didn't think it would be that good until I made it, it tasted amazing.

One thing I do differently than in this video is after sauteing I add fresh diced tomato instead.

Never heard of. Well eggs and tomatoes are two optimum, go to power foods for me so I like that idea
