Still in a drought here in Iowa so am getting annoyed with having to water the garden about every other day right now. Planted green beans twice this year, 1st time I think I may have planted a tad early and 2nd time have no idea why they did not come up so am resigned that it is a lost cause at this point. We had some unusually cold temps a few nights in early May too that I think stunted some of my pepper plants but they have finally recovered and look better now. My broccoli and cauliflower plants look really healthy as do my tomato plants. Bush cucumber plants are starting to climb up the trellis and summer squash plants starting to get some early blooms. Just got a good bunch of lettuce this week so overall while had some setbacks and failures all things considered with our weird weather and drought here garden is faring pretty well at the moment. Would rather get some timely rains to help than racking up the water bill but it is what it is.
Thanks.. I gotta give credit for that to my grandparents. My great grandparents raised Vegetables and sold them on a decent sized scale. I mixed what they taught me with some modern day knowledge.Sky you are one heck of a good gardener !!! How did you learn how to garden so well ?

Sky I bet your garden has really produced as it was ahead of mine. We finally got some timely rains. Just canned 98 quarts of beans (42 quarts of peanut beans in the total), 84 quarts of tomato juice with more to come. The corn is getting ready and if I can keep the rodents out and a wind storm does not blow it down it looks good. The early dry spell hurt the broccoli, but everything else has done good. Dug some potatoes and they are getting big.
