Nice garden!

I wish we had dirt like that and that I had time for a garden like that.

Any more, I barely get time to tend a couple dozen mater plants and a couple dozen peppers.

We planted a few beans as a cover crop and a couple cages of cukes too.

We have had great growing weather here in Northern Indiana. Warm days and cool nights along with plenty of rain. Everything is growing fast. Should have our first green beans in the next week. The tomatoes and peppers will be a few more weeks. The potatoes are flowering now but won't be ready to harvest until later this fall. Thanks for looking!

We'll be picking our first maters in a couple days. we have been picking peppers for a couple weeks now, along with cukes. We started picking green beans a couple weeks ago.

It gets so hot here in the summer that we actually have like two separate growing seasons, one in the spring/early summer, and one late summer/fall.

Down here, if you aren't picking corn by the 4th of Juky, you prolly won;t have much of a crop.

I'm thinking you must've planted your taters late though, or you would be digging. them long about now. I grew up in central Illinois and it seems like I remember that the 4th of July was just about when we started digging them.

Any of you guys ever plant your potatoes in tires?

My Dad would stack a few up and then kick them over to harvest.No digging.I think he might of got the idea out of Farmers almanac or something.Too long ago to remember.

Really nice garden! Lotta tilling, but well worth it.

Any deer issues? Potato beetles?

My cousin used to live in a trailer park with very limited garden space. He used the tire method. I have also seen them grown on top of the ground, covered with straw, then chicken wire.
