    Been doing fairly well, but worried about late freezes got me a little behind. Also I chanced some vegetables that probably would have lasted longer during cooler weather.



    Sugar Snap Peas, several types of onions, Pablano, Sweet and Hot Banana Peppers, Turnips, Cukes, Broccoli (probably won't make it) and several types of tomatoes.

    The lettuce we have is starting to bolt. Funny 37º last night and by this weekend, 90º for the high [​IMG]


    My first try at Red Potatoes in a 55 gallon drum. Got some info from Squirrel on doing it this way.


    This was a potted winter Cherry tomato, since transplanted to the ground. Doing pretty well and busting with fruits.


    And for only the 2nd time in 4 years, we have PEACHES. We have been hit with some late freezes that have killed off all the blooms. This year we got lucky.

    Everything looks nice and healthy, lets hope you can get a great harvest  before it gets to hot.

    Looks good!
  4. Looks really great!  It's amazing what a few hundred miles can do.  I wish I had a garden that far along.  I'm just now thinking about getting stuff in the ground.  Indiana weather is always crazy in the spring, though.

    Good luck!!

    True, but we will get so hot soon that not much will grow. Our Spring just doesn't last long enough. [​IMG]
