Heck, I am planning on eating 2 or 3 BLT's, 2 or 3 times per week when they finally get ready. So far I have picked a couple of cucumbers, some broccoli and a couple of hot peppers. Should have some yellow crook neck squash soon.

Beautiful looking garden there, Gatoragn.

I just have tomatoes and I plan to eat them any which way I can. My favorite? Just slice them up, a little salt and eat. I have even learned how to eat them like an apple without making a mess. But it involves a lot of slurping sounds.

So far the 4 foot high poultry wire fence has kept both the deer and the rabbits out of my garden. I know the deer could jump it if they wanted, but I guess they have enough other stuff to eat.

I have all kinds of Tomatoes on the vine,but the heat is starting to split the tops and sides of them...Then the birds are getting into them where they split-open...I've had to pick half of the one's ready or not...Every Tomato,I see a BLT or a Salad in it's future,but not so much anymore......This HEAT is killing my Garden.....

So far my tomatoes seem to be coming along well. We'll see what happens. I did have a year where they split but I thought that was because it was dry and then it rained a lot. I thought the sudden amount of rain might have caused them to split. I don't know. But so far so good. I've been getting a handful of cherry tomatoes every day. The big tomatoes are all still green.

I had a good one until the Drouth got it. Next year, I'm going to have to figure out some way to water it.

Can you collect and store rain water while it is raining? Or has the drought be a long time? If you shower in a tub type shower, close the drain and let the water gather in the tub and use that to water the garden. The little bit of soap won't hurt it. Can you save the rinse cycle water from your washing mashine? That could be reused, too. Not the wash cycle but the rinse cycle.
