We don't even have our garden tilled! We finished one raised bed that my peppers and parsley and basil will go in. I guess would could put the squash on the other end of it.
Has anyone tried drying summer squash/zuke?

Okra is actually a superfood. We made some "okra bread" that was really quite good. I am good with it in soups. Fried okra is good but kind of defeats the purpose. Hubby made some okra pickles but I have not had the nerve to try them. .......
I have to tell you though that as the okra got taller, the top leaves looked a good bit like Marijuana. Not the fat leaves but the skinny ones that show up when the plant gets old. Of course, I have had FOUR different people accuse my ELDERBERRY of looking illegal. HAHAHA not EVEN close.

Thanks! It's fun. We harvested some squash already. Yum! I plan on making some pickled squash to preserve it this year.
Please keep us up to date on how the trombocino works out!

Looks nice! Squash is moving a long and you have tomatoes (jealous). This year I am planting trombocino to avoid the borers but may give in on the sevin dust at the base as well for my non moschata plants. Even found a moschata pumpkin.
I was somewhat late again this year. We were staining the woodwork on our raised beds and husband taking a long time sifting his worm castings.
Have in the tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, corn, beans, cantelopes, watermelons, pumpkins [the last 4 are just sprouting] and I am planting butternut, cushaws, and trombocinos this weekend. That will leave one more bed for planting. Most of my herbs are mixed in with the plants as companions..though I am going to plant some of the perennials among my foundations plantings. Have some outside of my fence in soil bags on the ground with the plan of doing a "rain gutter grow system" approach if plants do well there. Am also doing some experimental container plantings on my deck.
We have some amaranth - I may do a mix of that and Okra in the empty bed!

A Garden tour for my friends here. The video is about 5 minutes long. Please forgive the typos, I do know how to spell. I put this together quickly this morning.
I hope you enjoy...Hi GLH! Your cucumbers make an appearance and the pups too.

Indeed it is! Lots of the red clay here in GA. Call it the 'Red Clay State' will turn white dogs and horses orange in no time!
Hubs opted for raised beds, that has worked well.
I think you have raised beds as well, yes?

OK so I think I got all my hot weather plants going so this is what I will be going this year (I wanna know what everyone else has too for future ideas )
Berkley Tie Dye
Black Cherry Tomato
Chile rellanos (might die though, some ants took it's little leaves )
Late dutch flat cabbage
tender sweet carrots
I think that's it for the summer stuff, I just planted the cabbage and broccoli and will plant the other stuff later
That's it for now, I think so anyway...
