Looking good. My gardens never seem to work out. I was afraid this garden post might be one of those Adam and Eve/Adam and Steve posts that seem to be dominating CM tonight. : )

Quoting a_and_j_momma:My garden was a total flop lol
In my main garden I've lost 80% of the tomatoes and a good 75% of the green beans due to root rot, thanks to the almost 8 inches of rain in 36 hours that we got 2 weeks ago. I'm sick about it, but we will survive. My beets are ready to can. We've been enjoying zucchini and cucumbers for the past 2 weeks and I should make some sweet pickle relish next week. Potatoes are HUGE...the plants are at least waist high and I do have decent sized potatoes under the soil (I think they LOVE the composted horse manure that I planted them in.) Onions are a nice size and will be ready for harvest very soon. I've gotten 3 pickings of peas already and need to pick again today if it's dry. Spaghetti squash have taken over one of the side gardens and bees are busy pollinating the butternut squash and pumpkins. Kale is looking beautiful, as are the parsnips. I hope the carrots start to grow better. My rows of peas and beans for seed look beautiful and haven't been affected by the root rot.
Oh, and I've got 2 cantaloupe and one watermelon that are taking their sweet time growing bigger.
