Jax08 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?

jocoyn 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.

Gwenhwyfair 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!

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!

Gwenhwyfair 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.

Hubs opted for raised beds, that has worked well.

I think you have raised beds as well, yes?

The good thing is when I was tilling it up, there was a ton of worms in there, so that's a good thing. I hate that we use so many chemicals on things nowadays. Usually chemicals are a last resort in my book. I try everything else first

Girl_Loves_Hydraulics 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 )
Tomatoes:
Berkley Tie Dye
Black Cherry Tomato
Black Brandywine
Paul Robeson
Best Boy
Bonnie's Best

Peppers:
California Wonder
Banana
Pepperoncini
Cayenne
Serrano
Poblano
Chile rellanos (might die though, some ants took it's little leaves )

Other crap:
Late dutch flat cabbage
broccoli
garlic chives
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...
