    We're on our way for a very big summer growing season. Congratulations on all that. Jim, what kind of camera or video recorder do you use?? Thanks my friend!

    Its that time of the year again, the weather looks lovely, and you definitely have been busy gardening Jim , I was thinking the last time your eggplants were damaged by the flea beetles this year since you have them elevated on the hay bales you can cover them with a mesh to protect them…i also loved your hollow tree planter ☺the garden looks lovely overall,well done .

    Hey Jim, you've been really busy. The garden is looking good and filling up… ;-). The wave petunia are starting fill out on the hollow log. I grew the velvet queen sunflowers last year, they should put on quite a show for you, T

    That is insane. My son is trying the Velvet Queen Sunflower this year and also has some mammoth variety growing from bird seed. The Velvets sprouts coloring looks really cool. The yard is looking great and I feel you on the always behind/never done feeling. Those mid zone extreme weather patterns are rough. Why worry about aphids when a hail ball can fall from the sky and crush the whole operation? Or a wind storm can come along and lay half the yard down? lol Tons of good stuff. Thanks for the share!

    Your garden looks so good Jim!!! And the experiments too. Speaking of experiments, how far apart are your radishes? I’m experimenting with them and I might have planted them too close together.
    😂 these suckers are hot 😂
    Your lilac reminded me of home – there we have bushes planted he size of our house and they smell soooo good 😍
    And I’m exited to see how the goji berries do 😍

    Jim, will you let the onions go to storage size? Glad to see that the storm didn't get to your tomatoes. Very nice garden update. The straw bales seem to be doing well, can't wait to see the progress on them. Have a great today! Catherien

    Glad you made it through that storm. We had some small pea hail but still enough that I lost a few plants. Garden in looking great and looking forward to watching it grow.

    Looking pretty good. I have some spinach bolting too, though I suspect it's more of me keeping the bed too dry. I guess it's time to do some freezing before it all goes!

    So glad to see you made it out of that storm with no damage! Everything is looking really good buddy. I hear ya on getting busy this weekend in the garden. Bales heating up and you have not added any fertilizer at all? I am on day #4 of curing the new 18 bales inside the new greenhouse. Thanks for the tour buddy and hope you have a great weekend! 🙂

    Looking good! I'm curious to see how the store bought popcorn does! And I love lilacs! I've always wanted a lilac bush! They are so pretty! And I bet they smell good! My little guy was watching and wanted to ask you what your favorite color is? 😉
