My garden is a full month behind. Last year I was doing pickles and picking zucchini and yellow squash the first week of June. Those plants are now just a few inches tall and stalled. The rain we are getting now, and the heat to come in a few days will help things jump.

Did pick a quart of strawberries yesterday, big, sweet berries. I lost most of my patch due to blossom rot but do have some late blossoms on now and will still get a dozen or so quarts.

Cucumbers didn't break ground yet.  Everything else popped up yesterday.  Had frost on my windshield yesterday morning.

We love broccoli, I used to do it here but the amount of bugs I would have to deal with... and I don't use pesticides...the squeeze just wasn't worth the juice. Same for peas, nothing beats fresh peas but they are a lot of work for small reward. My brothers grow those two things now, so we trade for things I grow that they don't.

The row is 50+ feet, about 3+ feet wide. Just checked it again, once the berries start going red, they go quick, and I might be a little more than 12 quarts.

Blue berries look good too, well, half of them do. Like the strawberries, I lost a lot of the early variety to the late frost. I have another row outside of the garden that is the early variety and they have almost no berries on them this year. These are the later variety.

I stopped growing broccoli, too, because I started getting green worms and don't like to use pesticides.  Besides, my wife would go out and buy a bag of tops to make cavatelli and broccoli just before it was ready in the garden, then not use the garden stuff.

I understand not wanting to use pesticides Grey, but you won't even use BT for greenworms? Works almost instantly and you can eat the stuff.      Jack
