I have transferred my tomatoes from the original size growing pots to little larger ones. I have also planted the okra and dill seeds. I think before we leave on vacation, next Sat I am putting the tomatoes out side on the patio table That way they will get watered from rain if nothing else I will actually not put them in the ground until we get back which will be the night of the 9th. I guess Monday the 10th will be a busy day between unpacking, grocery shopping and planting,

I haven't been here in quite some time. Last year my DH helped me set up two dog kennels to protect my garden from critters. I used the chain link for growing thing but I didn't like how that worked out. Veggies were growing outside the cage. Anyway it got a little too wild and I let it go.

I have been prepping my garden for this year....and I promise not to plant too much, lol. Really

I got my garden hand tilled and my my aisles are cleaned up. I just want to do a soil test before I start planting. Then I can start with my early season veggies, lettuce, spinach, and red onions

I know this is really old but that is so cool. Do you have any pics of your squash in buckets?

I can't wait to see your "new" garden

We also use a dog kennel or dog run as we call it for most of our container plants. We just finished dragging containers out of the shed a little while ago. We already had a few out: mistake, one apparently doesn't have enough holes for good drainage. Well we brought it out last week, we had a lot of rain this week and now it is filled with more water than dirt. Hope it drys enough for hubby to drill a few more holes in it before we leave for vacation. We are supposed to have rain almost every day this week.

I like the black beauty zukes. How many did you plant? I usually plant two but that is because I worry I might have a bad year. Of course if it is a good year I have way too many zukes, lol. Then I make lote of zucchini/squash relish.

I just looked up the delacata squash. It says it's a winter squash. Will that work for you?
