I make Mrs primer stay out of the garden. I didn't want her to strike out after she got to strike two: I showed her the two rows of carrots, and all the weeds growing at random around them. The whole time she stood there tapping her foot, rolling eyes, saying I know i know. No carrots that year.

Apparently I can't water to her strict standards. And pull weeds. And harvest.......

Pretty much last season all I did was build raised beds, haul the soil/manure from the suppliers, get supplies, fix the wire bottoms on the existing beds,

in other words, she wants to do all of the "fun" stuff but has to have me help with the heavy stuff. Now that the boys are teenagers she can have them do it.

Beans are a little thick. Do you thin them out? That could affect their production.

Set my 'maters, peppers, & eggplant yesterday, temperature dipped to 34 overnight. Hopefully we had enough breeze to keep frost off.

Gardening is a great way to entertane the brain and eat well. I buy two truck loads of mushroom compost at the time I till and the 150 I spend up front gives my family about 6000 in canned veggies every year. Invest in a containment tank and pump and plumb all your grey water to the tank. Then water your garden with it. The used soaps and body smells ( which you don't smell) will keep every dear or afid away from your garden. One seasons work is a lifetime of no more worries. Have a good garden.

Thank you!
I must carefully revisit this with the owner/operator of this particular bed...my wife!
The suggestion has been made, but the time is probably right to make again.
