Picked some zucchini, yellow squash, pickles and string beans today. Next few weeks I'll be busy freezing string beans and making pickles.

The late beans, yellow squash and zucchini are breaking ground too, with kale, swiss chard and beets to the left.

Behind them are the pumpkins, acorn squash, butternut squash and watermelons. They should take over the entire back part of the garden.

That's more like a farm than a garden. Looks great

Good info!

Never knew there was so much to be informed about regarding pallets!!

https://www.1001pallets.com/pallet-safety/?amp

I work in the Pharma industry, several years ago FDA mandated no wood pallets, several pharma products had been contaminated from just sitting on wood pallets!!!...we now use only aluminum or plastic.

With the lack of rain we've been experiencing lately, how often are you guys watering your gardens?  On a side note, I've created a separate topic asking questions about how you all preserve what's picked from your garden.  If you can, take a look and comment.

My patio garden is doing pretty good. But it looks like some Tomato end rot might be starting on my Big boy tomatoes......So  after a little research I decided to add some Powdered Milk (for calcium) in my watering.. 

Have any of you guys done this? And if so did it help?

Heres some pics:

Don't over water tomatoes,carrots, or other plants.  And do it in the morning, not at night.  Fungus, rot, and splitting are signs of over watering.  How often you water depends on how well your soil holds water and how hot/often the sun hits them.  Pots will dry out quicker.  Best way to tell without getting a meter is to stick your finger deep into the pot.  If you feel moister, let it go another day or give them just a little drink each morning, not to saturate the soil.
