When my grand kids come up to visit that’s the first place they want to go. We always make sure they are here on planting day then all summer long every time they show up they want check out their handy work and oh man when they get to help pick the smiles are on.
I hope it’s something they remember.

Any other vegetable gardeners in here?

Just tossed some lime pellits in the garden today to get the calcium up and hopefully no blossom end rot on the tomatoes. Works every year.

I have 360 garlic plants in the ground since November and they are looking great. Planted 20' of potatoes in the garden yesterday, and 360 onion plants went out today. In the cellar under lights are sweet peppers (7), hot peppers (7), broccoli (12), cauliflower (12), and romaine lettuce (6). Next to start under lights will be tomatoes (26), eggplant (7), and basil (12). Next to sow outdoors are snap peas (10'), beets (10'), corn (120), beans (20'), cucumbers (5'), squash (4), and cantaloupe (8).

No, the garden is only 50' x 50' and feeds my wife and I with most veggie needs for the year. I can and freeze extensively during the summer. Any excess goes to friends and the local food bank where I volunteer.
