Still getting some stuff.
It was a bumper crop year for everything I planted.
SFG (no till) & the compost is the way I'll go from now on.
Potatoes may take a while to get set up but everything else will be in soil boxes nest season. (time permitting)

I'm glad you had such a successful year after all your composting efforts. It was a lush plot! Are you enjoying the thoughts of no more tilling each year? You'll be able to plant earlier without having to wait for the soil to dry out enough to till.

Bodydave, you have a much bigger garden than we do. That is for sure. You have a lot to take care of.

We are planting more cucumber from seeds. Hopefully we will get more cucumber since it doesn't freeze around here until end of October. (HOPEFULLY IDEALLY) And we also planting spinach, radishes, lettuce and peas.

Dave, congratulations on what looks like one heck of a successful year! If you keep this up you might have to open up a stand at a farmers market.

BTW, Foxy, I enjoyed reading more of your updated web site. I feel the same way as you do. So little time so many projects, inside and outside... I'm glad my DH has been planting the vegetable seeds and straighten up the newly cleaned shed. Just too much for even 2 people. And my DH still holds down a full time job and he will be 70 in October.

Snow just tidy's up a garden so nice. and it looks so peaceful.I still have to look out at weedy areas, growing nicely with all the rain. I'm slowly getting some newspaper and straw down to smother some of them. Enjoy it!

You're plants are huge! Guess that's a perk when you have so many summer sunlight hours. Congrats on the successful garden!
