Lets talk about GARDENING

I got my garden started early this year gambling on it not frosting and it has payed off BIG time.

My Roma and Sweet 100 maters are taller than I am. My squash plants have already produced and the pepers are comming on strong. The cucks are climbing the fence and I should have some ready to pick in a few days. Anyone else have a garden?

You definitely have a green thumb Bill! My tomato plants aren't doing anything this year, squash is coming along though.

I just planted two tomato plants last week. I think I'll add some pumpkin seeds soon here
Also in the "garden" I have fruit trees. The peach, apple, fig, plum, and apricot are starting to sport major fruit. The lemon and orange go year round.

I hate gardening.

If it wasn't for the fact I love fresh tomatoes I would not bother. I am always admiring other people's gardens and raid the neighbours

My tomatoes are up about 2-3 ft now.

We have two gardens, a small one at home and a larger one at a friend's house. The small one at home has 4 tomatoes, 1 sweet basil, 1 cinnamon basil, 1 greek oregano, 1 rosemary, 1 lavendar, onion chives, cilantro, parsley, and dill.

The one at our friends' house has over 20 tomatoes (Romas, beefsteak, cherry, and others), 6 jalapenos, 6 bell peppers, 6 red beauty peppers, 4 cayenne, 1 zucchini (I'm the only one that will eat it.), 4 eggplants, 4 burpless cukes, 4 pickling cukes, green onions, watermelon, cantaloupe, and honeydew melons, and pumpkins. I think I've listed all of it! We have 1 jalapeno about ready to harvest and they picked a cucumber yesterday. We planted in mid-May so it won't be long now!

I've never had any luck with a garden, no green thumb I guess.
