Well?

How are the gardens looking so far?

 

My peppers are off to a nice start.

Our peppers are doing well also as are the tomatoes. The deer ravaged the beets, green beans and peas. I call them garden rats but I've thus far resisted the temptation of blasting them to smithereens. Every direction you look around here all you see is green and those pesky varmints have to attack our garden. :mad:

What all yea got? Looks like the jalapenos are doing well.

My wife keeps telling me I better throw a bunny fence up. I'm banking on them not eating Ghost peppers, Carolina Reapers and Trinidad Scorpions. :eek:

A couple jalapenos, a "Mucho Nacho", ghost and habanero, long yellow pepper and a bunch of bell peppers......red, orange, yellow, purple and green.  Three tomater pants and some onions.

 

Small garden, but it makes it easy to work with and keep weed free. Had plastic netting up to keep the deer out, but the bunnies decided to chew through it on the lower level and mess with things. So put up metal bunny fence this year. Hoping that the coyote I've seen around lately is thinning them out.

Only peppers, tomatoes and summer squash in my veggie garden this year. Got a big pumpkin patch out by the road outside of my tree line. Nothing fruiting yet, but it's all looking good for as cold of June as we had up here. 

 

Ornamentals are really looking good this year and I'm doing a ton more containers than in the past. I have some costa I can hide behind. Been adding a ton of antiques to the garden to the point that Mrs. Peatmoss has declared a moratorium until I get our deck resurfaced and rail up.

 

Someday, I'll get a little more savvy and post some pics.

 

I do have hobbies other than antagonizing religious folks:D

Mine was doing pretty well until this week, a couple nights of strong storms have most of my sunflowers/corn now at 45 degree angles:) Pumpkins, cucs, tomatoes are looking great. The cooler June had them kind of growing slow, but the last few days of hot weather has them taking off again.....

Now that 8 or so bunnies have gone missing my garden is looking great. Picked peas and first 2 zucchini last night.

Tomatoes and peppers are looking good.  Pulled them under the eve of the garage last night before the storm hit.

Garlic, peas, tomatoes, onions, beats, are doing quite well.  Beans, corn, cabbage are OK.  Broccoli and vine crops poor.

I forgot to mention the carrots.  I have likely the best crop of carrots that I have ever had.  I don't think I have ever harvested carrots this large this early before.

    • I agree about the lodge. After gear and any snow it can become a heavy pull. The lodge fit in my 1500 chevy silverado (6.5 ft box) as long a you put the flat end of the tub to the front and when closing the tailgate you had to pick up the end of the sled just a little for the gate to close. 
    • When the heck do they issue them? Seems to be getting late. I'd like to know what kind of slaughterhouse Zone 1 will be, or if they are going to play it smart and continue being a bit conservative 
    • Definitely plan on doing some pulling by hand ealry ice so I'm thinking the cabin it is then. Thanks for the tips and info on the otters and equipment it's been a very big help!
    • Yep, I've contacted 4 or 5 campgrounds in the last couple of days. One has gotten back to me, the rest have not yet.   We will be up that way over the Labor Day holiday so we can check out a few campgrounds while we are there. We actually checked out 2 or 3 while we were up there last year at that time.   I'm not too sure if we are ready to take the plunge yet or not but we are close.
    •   If you are start talking to the owners of the campgrounds now about letting you know when there may be an opening. Ours fills up during the summer but at the end of the season the owners will start hearing about those that will be moving out at the end of the year. Lot's of relatives will tell their families as soon as they hear someone is moving out. Good Luck.
    • Thanks guys. Looks like there are a few lakes to checkout.
    • I really hope the wolves aren't seriously considering this. You take LeBron James off the cavs, and Irving leads them to an 8 seed in the east, at best! This is going to be KAT's team for years to come, so if Irving is looking to be top dog, it certainly won't be here! Personally, I don't think he'll be traded. If the lakers show any sign of improvement in this upcoming season, LeBron will be leaving to go there anyway, so Irving just needs to be patient and he'll be he top guy again.
    • We're definitely checking out our options in a couple of areas we like but I'm not sure if it will happen as early as next year or not.
    • Definitely something to be said about parking it an leaving.  My fees are nothing except the bills I help pay for at the family cabin.  Would hate hooking and unhooking all the time.
    • Still have my old sno-boat. Best portable shelter out there for pulling by hand. You scored a heck of a deal! I feel mine is irreplaceable! I don't use it much, but when I do, I'm so glad I have taken care of it and still have it 16 years later. I've had 1 zipper replaced on the D-door and some patching done at Canvas Craft years ago.  I think the other zipper is on it's way out, and will definitely get that repaired when needed.
