We actually made three more cantaloupe hills because we have so many volunteers everywhere,even with the drought last year we had a fairly nice cantaloupe patch,this year we're a month or two behind.

I would thin them out quite a bit, but it might be too late for that. If they are thinned out they will actually produce a bigger crop. They need room to grow, sunlight down into the plant and air movement. All three are important.

Well then why don't you just move along then? Nothing for you to see here that interests you.

Planted two more rows of carrots by request of the kid. I can't eat the lettuce as fast as it grows now. Everybodys lettuce started growing fast at the same time and everyone is giving it away.

I agree the cantaloupe need lots of space,along with the sunlight and air circulation.

The photo really doesn't represent the size of the patch very well which was approx. 20'x30' last year with 6 hills of 3 plants. They really did well of course we had to irrigate with the drought,we couldn't eat and give enough away last year

This year with our late start in the garden due to flooding I thought we would experiment with 3 extra hills since we will have a shorter vine growing season this year?

Just playing in the dirt lol

Also I really enjoyed your bee keeping video,it was very informative. I'm hoping one day to get started with a hive or two.

Turnip season has arrived, but they are a little small. Grape tomatoes are starting to swell, but are still all green. Beans are starting their blossoms.

Looks good primer1 and sounds like your garden's doing well

Our garden is beginning to take shape,just way behind compared to last year.

I haven't had any decent rain in weeks, and I'm tired of watering. The big front that moved through yesterday only gave me a tenth.

You can get some good stuff in the produce section, but not tomatoes. Picking a fully vine ripened tomato, walking into the kitchen and frying the bacon for BLT's can NOT be replicated with store bought 'maters.

Fresh tomatoes at a grocery store is an oxymoron.

Grape tomatoes are sweet, only had a couple so far. Beans are a couple days from picking. Cucumbers are blooming. Second planting of carrots are up, only to have a feral cat walk down the row. It didn't smash too many, but the trap is set nonetheless.

I whined about no rain for three weeks, the last ten days its rained quite a bit. One day I got almost two inches. Too late for the turnips, but everything else looks like its been drinking energy drinks mixed with miracle grow.
