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.

ground hogs....arrrggghhh!

the pesky groundhog is back! she ate my first tomato, that was just about ready! i will try sprinkling some red pepper flakes around and move the owl wind chimes to the garden.......if that doesn't deter her. i'll be borrowing KB"s live trap and she'll get to take a nice ride out into the country!

the other one that was almost ripe will finish ripening up on the table....out of her reach!

Garlic #2

This is the first year I have grown this variety. It is called Music and it is suppose to be a long storing garlic that is very cold tolerant. It was studied at Michigan State. I am anxious to try it in some of my recipes. It is also a hard neck variety.

Garlic

I have my 2016 garlic all cleaned up and ready to use for cooking.
This is a picture of the Duganski which is a hard neck variety. I have planted it for years and it has always done well for me.

Funny cherry tomato!

It was so sweet and delicious, but looked like a angry bird to me! Lol. Even had a handle to hold on to til I got to the very end.

waiting on the Queen....

The paddle wheeler, the Mississippi Queen, has locked through #18, just south of us. She'll be rolling by heading north to Minneapolis sometime this am. Ellie and I are sitting on the porch, hoping to catch a glimpse of her. I'll know when, because traffic will increase by our house to the river front park.

I checked the price of a ride:from St Louis to Minneapolis is less than $3K....from Minneapolis to NOLA less than $6K........gonna have to buy another lottery ticket. sigh

How'd You Like This?

Two boys were riding behind a home on Castle Street in Monticello KY when they came across a 54-inch Timber Rattlesnake.

Chris Garner, who took a photo of the snake, says it is the second rattler they have encountered in two days. This one was the largest.

Workers at the Kentucky Reptile Zoo say the snake in the photo appears to be 20 to 30 years old.

It is a "good-sized" male, but not a record. The largest Timber rattler on record was 74.5 inches in length.
