On my THIRD day of a wind and dust storm here. Wind has been 50-70mph, with blowing dust. Most of my vegetables are wind burned, so if this stupid wind ever stops, I'll see what I can salvage and start over with the rest.

We've only gotten a 1/2" of rain from Tropical Storm Beryl.
The paddocks for the goats are so dry, if we dont get some real rain soon, I am gonna have to start hauling in hay.

We got lots of rain yesterday so all I have to do today is pick tomatoes and any worms I find.

No tomatoes to pick but I did find 5 big fat horn worms that had done a lot of damage. Fed 'em to the birds.

I'm thinking my raised bed is not getting enough water. I have havested mucho cukes and a few green beans and yellow squash, but everything else is not exactly thriving. I'm upping the water to see if this helps.

Needless to say, its way to wet to go out and wok in the garden, think I am gonna take it easy today.

This minus 2 weeks - this is where we are at. Lettice just showing up. Those beefy tomatoes - heavens! still about 2.5 months away here (Nova Scotia)....

Shouldn't we have a separate thread for Canada and colder states?

Hey guys - I have some baby yellow crookneck squash that apparently never pollinated, from what I can tell....also have quite a few that clearly did get what they need! Do I need to remove these little ones? Seems they would drain power from the main plant? Also, do I need to go ahead and pluck the blooms off the ones that are getting big? Believe it or not, last year I didn't have a single squash and didn't plant it the year before when I first started my garden .... I just want the most bang for the buck here! I do dearly love me some squash....

If all these tomatoes come in at one time you are all invited to my back yard for the Great Tomato Giveaway. Unless the neighbors get them first....I see them peering over the fences.... :-)
