I try to avoid dealing with vegetation in any form.

I have a grey thumb and hate to see them suffer under my 'care'. ;)

I've got little green tomatoes forming! YEA! The lettuce and spinach and radishes are in...I've been eating and freezing them like crazy. Meanwhile, the sunflowers seem to be taking over everything...knew I should have planted them somewhere else! Everything else is growing well...including the weeds. My job for today!

lol That is what Sun flowers do. I plant them up against the fence (about 7 feet tall) and let them go in the BACK of my garden. They bring in bees and are pretty ...for a while. But they will take care over!:errrr:

In my garden I have cilantro, radishes, 2 types of tomatos, serrano chiles, jalepanos, and squash. My corn and watermelon haven't done anything yet.

The terrible thing is, I KNEW they would. But I planted them anyway. I've tried to plant them in different spots all over my yard for years with no sucess, so this year I stuck them in the garden. And what do you know, they're growing. VERY well!

well since I just moved and have not much a clue how things are in my yard, I just put a garden near the back door and I have 12 tomatoe plants. 4 of the tomatoe plants are those low acid yellowish orange colored ones. Never had them, but we are giving them a try. and I have 4 Red sweet pepper plants and 4 banana pepper plants and 4 cucumber plants. So far we have signs of tomatoes and a couple cukes. The peppers are going soo slow. I think it might be the soil. I need to miracle grow all of them. Plus some good rain here will help.

Everyone's garden sounds so lovely, I can practically visualize them, my son in law planted some tomatoes, cucumbers, squash and some other things I forgot and they are really beginning to sprout good

Corn and watermelon need lots of room even if your growing a special verities for small spaces. I've tried growing all kind of verities but didn't have a lot of luck.

Corn is a wind pollinater, so you'll have to give them a good shake every now and then to get them pollinated. Each and every corn silk is linked directly to a kernel. So if not all the silk gets the pollen it'll produce a lop sided or malformed ear.

Good luck.

Garden? Did someone say garden? I've got some wine grapevines in the ground (my mini-vineyard) starting some ruby red sweet corn, multi-variety potatoes, pinks, red, butters, multi-colored carrots, peas, red cabbages, bruss sprouts, spinach. I am a gardening freak, my parents had bananas and all manner of tropical vegetables in their island garden. I live in a cool, dry climate for now so I'm waiting for the weather to warm up so I can put the hot weather plants in the ground.
