Impromptu Garden Thread

It just occurred to me that KT mentioned last night that she was going into the hospital for a minor procedure. I didn't consider how that might impact the Saturday gardening thread, but since there isn't one in the queue, I figured I better throw something up. I don't have anything prepared, so lets start with...this:

That's my garden at the new house. I've never had a garden this large, and it was actually a struggle to fill it up. I've got tomatoes, peppers, corn, spinach, lettuce, broccoli, beans, peas, onions, squash, cukes, carrots, watermelons , cantaloupes, asparagus, cabbage and brussels sprouts growing (ETA: I forgot the berries. The lower right quadrant of the garden in the picture has berry bushes. Blueberries, blackberries, raspberries and I even plated a couple of grape vines for gits and shiggles). The brussels sprouts aren't going to make it, they got a blight. The whole thing is set up for automatic watering every day (the sprinklers on posts at the two corners), and it seems to be doing well. I can't wait until later in the year when I start harvesting stuff, I'll keep you updated.

The only other yard/garden thing I have offhand is this. I just got a pretty good deal on a Toro zero-turn mower.


I bought it from a guy selling it for a widow for $1200. I could turn around and sell it for close to $2000 easily, so I'm pretty pleased. The thing lets you mow with great precision, but it does take a bit of getting used to control wise.

Well, that's it. Pretty crappy garden thread, but next week KT will be back with a real one. Please remember her in your prayers, "minor" procedures are rarely that when it's you that's getting the work done. What's going on with your gardens, Morons?
