Here in central MO. for us,gardening is not working out this year?
With the late snows mild temps this Spring,it really slowed down any progress in the early season gardening,since then we've been experiencing above normal rainfall and actually flooding.

We were able to disc our garden,and tilled 1/2 of the 25 x100 ft. last week,then Fri. planted 10 rows of sweet corn along with 4 rows of blue lake beans. Since then we've had torrential thunderstorms and our garden has been flooded with standing water,we should've planted Rice...lol....Not looking good

If we ever dry out we will probably need to replant,and hopefully get the rest of the garden planted,that is if we ever dry out?

These are thornless. There are several varieties that ripen at slightly different times.

We’re planning on blackberry jam for the most part. This is the second year of bearing. Last year I didn’t have them screened so the birds and chickens ruined most of them.

We’ve had pretty good luck freezing with other thornless varieties. These berries look to be smaller and more compact than some I have had so they might do OK.

There has been more cloudy, rainy days than sunny so far this year. Not good for berries!

We finally were able to get back in the garden this past week,and to our surprise about 60% of our 10 rows of sweet corn made it through the flood. The Blue Lake beans were another story,only 6 plants came up out of 4 rows,we replanted the beans and the areas where the sweet corn didn't sprout as well.

We started planting our cantaloupe hills,as we were doing this we started looking around and had a bunch of volunteer cantaloupe plants,so we went a head and transplanted them to the hills and they're doing really good. So the garden being over a month late is beginning to turn around and starting to look like a garden.

I got a late start because of the lingering winter weather as well.
My potatoes are up pretty good and mulched with straw, the onions are growing well, and my first planting of corn is a little over a foot tall. Just got the second corn planting in this week to have a later harvest of sweet corn. Planted cucumbers at the same time as the second corn. My tomatoes are in raised beds and containers and I have bell peppers in a raised bed too.

If we don't have a 117 degree summer again this year we should do ok. I'm wanting some baby potatoes pretty bad right now, though.

We're small farmers and our soy beans burnt up last year,in 25 years living and farming here that was the first time we lost the whole crop?
