So, it sucks that I only find time to post only about once a month. I've not kept up on glogs. Ugh...
But, for what it's worth, here's an update:
Temps have been about the same here Andy... An unseasonably warm few days followed by a few weeks of cool, rainy weather. I'm hoping things warm up fairly soon so the plants can really stretch out in the sun, not that I mind the rain after the drought conditions last year. [emoji2]

We had a pretty dry stretch through June and into July. We just got some wonderful rain this morning, and the garden is loving it. Have you guys had a dry stretch out your way?
Great update Andy. Wishing you the best. I love the draft. Don't know anyone close enough that's passionate enough to do that. Why do we all have to live so far away from each other. LOL!
Thanks for sharing
Thanks! As far as the draft, I just kept talking to people and trying to get them to try it out. My goal was starting new chili heads. Even if they only grow a few plants, it gets them started!
Your place is looking great - lots of nice little projects going on!
Great pepper draft pix. What fun for your congregation members!
I don't know how I've missed your last several posts; but good stuff going on up your way!
You're doing the same things I did with my kids when they were that age. It worked with the boy child He's now a gardener. The girl child not , but she was exposed!
Keep doing just what you're doing; it's a nice way to chilli after work.
Thanks - yeah, I've had the kids working with me where I can. We're into 4H this year, so we'll see how that goes. I'm just trying to figure out how all that works. Good stuff though!
The garden is really doing quite well. I spent a bit of time tonight staking up the tomatoes and pruning them a bit. We got some rain this morning and I think the garden is pretty happy.
First, a couple shots to give you an overall picture of how things look:
Here's one of the raised beds:
This one is a Black River Scotch Bonnet (from a parishioner who went to Jamaica). It's filling in nicely.
Here's something from Pepper Joe called a "Garden Bird Pepper." The plant looks great, we'll see how it is.
Here's an SBJ7 Yellow from Trident Chili. You can see the shape coming in even though the pods are tiny. I'm excited about this one!
And here is a Hawaiian Chili Pepper from Hippy Seed Co. My brother in law got me these. The plant looks nice.
The animals have been keeping me pretty busy. Here are the ducks:
And some turkeys and broilers:
Lot's of meat in our future!
Finally, a quick video tour of the garden:
Thanks for stopping by!
