  • Oh yes, big time! Just harvested my last watermelon. Tomaotes have grown a bit too big, but are still fruiting. Cucumbers are just about done, i went on vaca & they dried up quickly without me watering them :~( I am desperately waiting on my sweet potatoes. I have found so many recipes to use!

  • Yes. Our garden consists of wooden boxes on legs and a couple of planters full of herbs. We started our seeds a little late this year and did not transfer them until June because that is when it finally warmed up enough. Our tomatoes are just now turning. We actually bought one of those Upsy Downsy planters from Wal Mart but never used it. Good thing since the seeds they provided are beefsteak type tomatoes so there's no way they would have survived. We are also growing green peppers and several varieties of hot peppers. It all is looking good.

  • My S/O has a very big garden. Last yr we put up so much spaghetti sause we're still eating it, and gave a lot to my DD. We have eggplant, green beans, lima beans, cucumbers, zucchini, squash, green peppers, hot peppers, once corn, lettuce, & onions. We put up as much as we can for the winter. But it sure does keep us busy.
