this is the place to share what you grow in the garden. How you grow it. What you do with your harvest.
The best produce is what you grow.I have had a garden for years. So if you grow a garden this is the place for you from old pro to just starting.
Lets talk abought what we grow and how we use what we grow.

Who knew that the packets of these seeds I planted would produce such pretty flowers. Will do these next year for sure. Lots of branches if a main seem! Late afternoon they close up. Haven't paid too much attention to them! I can tell you they are tall though! They are yellow, white, pink, even a couple red and dark pink!

Toni T., one of the "contributing editors" of In The Garden-Out Of The Garden passed away on Thursday, August 27th.

Toni was a dear and close friend to many of us on Pinch. She liked posting in this group even though she did not garden, but her mother had a garden when Toni was in her younger years.

Toni's son asked, that we keep their family in our prayers.
Thank you all.

Question about tomatoes

By Susan Feliciano
Yesterday at 8:59 PM
When our tomatoes first started producing, they were big and round, and firm and heavy. Now they are cracking before ripening, and have weird shapes. They tend to rot in spots if not picked before fully ripe.
Does anyone know what causes this phenomenon, and what we might do to prevent it?

It has been a trying year for everyone in the garden this matter where you are or what we tried to and what have you were some of the key factors for how well or how poorly our gardens did..:(
As we all wrap up our gardens this year..I know I, for one have learned a thing or two for what not to do and what I'll do differently next year..I'm already starting to plan my garden for next year..and if budget permits will start acquiring some of the supplies I will need..I have already started saving seeds from some if this years harvest..
Some things I know how to find/get the seeds..some thing..?? Not so much..

My weeding is DONE!!!!

Yes! I'm gloating! I have spent all week cutting brush, pulling up water grass, weeds and sticktights! We are weed free for the moment! I wish I had taken before and after pics.....let's just say, I didn't have to bend far to pull up weeds.

I spent most of the summer with my knee elevated and packed in ice on the front porch; watching the weeds grow. My knee scope surgery has been almost a 6 weeks ago, and while I still feel it from time to time the knee has held up well. Hubby has been a huge help, chopping them up and hauling the most undesirable ones to the burn pile in his lil wagon. It has been unseasonably cool this week, which is why I dove into this project. Next week is supposed to warm back up, and we will do indoor things or go boating.

Have a wonderful weekend, and do something fun!
