That chit works too!

I did the 16 year old dream garden, 5 rows of potatoes and 12 watermelon of different types.

Mosquitos here are going nuts. Two weeks of rain every day, sometimes 2-3 inches a day, followed by a week of 90+ sunny temps have them humping like vampire porn stars. A layer of deet slows down the weak ones, but the hungry ones just close their eyes and dive in.

Purple cauliflower. It's too strong to eat raw, but it will clear your sinuses . I'm gonna try blanching it, then fully cooking it if necessary to tame it.

After two minutes of blanching, it is much more mild, but green now. The picture looks like the heads turned brown, but they have a pale purple tint, but mostly green.

We're at WAR!! here at the garden front...

The sweetcorn's just about ready and the first masked after midnight recon specialist entered the garden perimeter last night!!

So we've had to tighten up security around the perimeter with halogen lights,talk radio,baited live traps,and a special concoction that's a bit more than a sedative!

Oh and itchy trigger finger armed to the hilt!! lol

I was getting everything set up and ready when I told Dad,i'm going to need to move the tractor and that trailer. Dad said, "It's not in the way is it?"

Smiling,I told him I didn't want to accidentally shoot the tractor in the fire fight with the Raccoon!!
Also you might have to pick a little lead out of those roastin' ears!! LOL
