This is my first adventure "OFF TOPIC". likelike

I have sweet corn, sweet potato, peppers, onions, water melons, squash, and am soon to expand the summer garden. I try to work in the garden and yard just as the sunrise lights up.

The joy of eating and sharing adds to the work out fun. It is just a back yard project. I help a neighbor with his garden. He is 92 and a WWII Vet. Still going and enjoying his garden.

Life is Great in the Garden. The bugs enjoy it too Thinking-about

We were considering planting sweet potatoes this year, but had not met anyone who did plant that kind in our part of the country.

Planting a garden allows an adult to "play-in-the-dirt". Cool

Beauregard Sweet Potato are a summer crop that will take about 90 days to produce. they cover a lot of ground as the vine spreads but O-so Good. try them if you have the room. Sleep-well

We have Grapes, Persimmons, Mandarin Oranges, Pears, Pecans, Tomatoes, Corn, Cantaloupe, Watermelon, Summer Squash, Sweet Potatoes, Blackberries, Raspberries, and a couple I have forgotten.

Of those I expect we will get to eat a couple Persimmons. The rest either get eaten by our chickens, the deer or crowds. And the stuff that survives the animals I kill with kindness. It saddens me how long it takes me to kill so many types of plants - I hate to see them suffer so long...

This year our sweet potatoes got to about 6 inches and locusts ate all the leaves.

We went on a rage picking, catching, and squashing grasshoppers for a few days and the squash appear to be trying to recover... my stupid chickens are supposed to keep the locust down, but they seem to prefer hanging out in the shade, eating my blackberries and discussing politics...

?? I was told(but tried any way)you can't grow blackberries & raspberries together,
and of course my raspberries died off...Frank how do you do your berry plants?
I enjoy being with a group who like to share their "Hosehead" experiences, to remind me I am not alone.

Hmm, I had not heard that, I will look it up. This will be our first year with Raspberries if they live. We got them from Arbor Day Foundation. We have 11 acres and the garden isn't very "organized" about 3 acres is cleared field and I plant around in it where it looks like they will get a lot of sun, the Raspberries and Blackberries are not very close.

I will have to look it up and see if maybe one of them should be moved further away, thanks.

Maybe distance makes a difference, ours were with 6 feet of each other... Good Luck!

While I was away enjoying hospital food the bugs ate very well. Plow it under and plant over.

Sorry to hear you were away at the hospital. Hope you are feeling better.

You are fortunate that you live in a climate where re-planting is possible. In IL, you get one chance at having a garden where veggies etc. can grow and come the end of August, that is all over.
