There are few scenarios more terrifying than traveling in a car full of bees.
Especially when you're deathly allergic...

We have horrible soil up here on the mountaintop. But most plants are finally in the ground/potted. The hardest work is done. Now to sit back, water, and enjoy the bounty!

Just a few pics of the babies...

Did you know that you can buy bags of topsoil and make your garden better? Crazy, huh?

Have you seen the plants I grow in my shitty soil?! I'm not screwing with what works, haha.

The comment was mainly to stave off insults from you hayseeds.

I've been eating spinach and lettuce salads almost every day for the past week.

Got my first couple of sugar snap peas as well.

cDub I forwarded your pics to our Natty Soil Judging Team and they said it wasn't possible for weeds to be growing in that crap so whatever you're doing, good job!

Is surrounding them in gravel some kind of mountain hack?

Between the guerilla gardening, morel hunting, and whisky drinking cDub might be the most interesting man in the world.

The recent storms knocked my sugar snap peas around but everything else is running smoothly.

Unlike most farmers in the area i was able to get my corn planted a couple weeks ago and it has already sprouted!

Looks great! Has it survived the storms in the meantime?

Thanks, it helps that we have actual soil here and not rocks like in WV.

Officially transitioned to the summer garden by harvesting/giving away all my lettuce. Still have a bunch of kale/swiss chard/mustard greens growing.

First cucumber seedlings have sprouted by the yellow tomato cages, planted some new seeds where the lettuce used to be as well.

Got rid of the broccoli as since it started to bloom. This was my second time trying to grow broccoli and i doubt i will try again.

I throw all of my unused/damaged tomatoes in the compost pile and have volunteer tomato plants sprouting up all over the yard so i planted some where the broccoli was. Im looking forward to seeing what kind of mutant crossbreed tomatoes will come off the vines!

I'm tapping out of this thread for the year. Job change, lack of time, and horribly atypical weather have stunted the crap out of my growth. It's embarrassing.

Congrats to all you farmland assholes on your crops. :dubious:

I mean, basically. Lol.

Job change has shifted and drastically reduced my "free" time, and our extreme rain followed by extreme dry heat has totally wrecked my timing.

I just don't have the energy right now.

We'll see how it ends up, I have peppers growing. Just not the plant size/production I'm used to at this stage.

Mowed today and noticed the dry grass. Glad I didn't mess with a garden this year. Heck of a swing in weather from June to now.
