figure ill throw in an update, man I have really neglected this glog this year. It been a busy summer for sure, with the boys in sports, working 10 hr shifts, 6 days a week, and keeping up on the garden. We were able to slip away for a couple weeks in June, the wife and I visited Aruba. Very beautiful island, we had a lot of fun snorkeling, diving and horseback riding. Can't wait to return. Anyways back o the update....things have been going really good for me this year, the dirt work has finally paid off, all the manure, cover crops and the leaves that have been added over the last couple years (thanks catherinew). The windbreak has held up pretty good, I think I'll only be able o get another year out of it though, so may need to look into alternatives. The wind has torn the grommets off and ive had to retie a few times, but having it up really helped the beginning part of the grow when the plants were smaller. Now they are getting big, loaded with peppers and im in the middle of getting them supported. The past few weeks the zucchini have been overloading us, we have three plants and are picking three a day. I've managed to make a few jars of zucchini pickles but will be making much more I think, gave a lot of it away top the neighbors too. The annums are producing now and so ive canned some wax peppers and pepperoncini too. The wifes garden up near the house is doing really well too, she added rabbit poo through the winter months and I think it has paid off, she planted a bunch of potatoes and pumpkins which are doing good. This past week we have some help watering the gardens its rained nearly every day but luckly no hail. Here are a few pictures of the garden.
This was at the end of June after returning from vacation, and after weeding. The weeds under the barrier frew so much that it was pushing the weed barrier up and got my drip hoses all offline. We lost some plants due to lack of water.
This was the first haul from the garden, around July 10th
