    Great looking urban farm. We'll keep expanding and organizing.

    Well, all its been doing is raining! All the lakes are full and we seem to be out of our drought here. The plants are probably soggy a bit but really growing now. I planted some new items and hope they'll come out nicely. I did a bit of intensive planting in our big bed. I lined up onions & garlic in front rows, put up an arch trellis that cucumbers and nasturtiums will grow on with radishes in the middle; and sunflowers on the back row. The other sections have 4 different tomatoe plants growing next to eggplant and pepper plants with flowers all around. Can't wait to see what that looks like when all is producing. I uploaded a picture of this setup in one section. I even made a couple of fairy gardens. pics ofnthose too! Hope everyone has a great harvest this year!

    Happy Spring everyone! It's been awhile since I've posted. I really need to take some new pics, My garden is just now fully planted with veggies and berries. Everything is small. But, got a new garden shed put up and a whole new section of planters for herbs and flowers put up. Hope everyone else is doing well out there!

    Hi Quinn. What's happening in the winter in Texas? I have a little urban farming going on in my basement, with lettuce, kale, pea shoots and carrot under the grow light.

    Hi Quinn. Thanks for the visit. My FOM was quite a while back. My crops are doing well, for the most part. I should post more current pics. Tomatoes are ripening nicely and I planted them inside from seed and didn't keep track of the type so, as they are ripening I'm able to figure them out. My summer squashes ended up with powdery mildew so the last fruit to start up is now shrivelling up but I've still got lots of cucumbers. My everbearing strawberries are still producing. I have kale and lettuce starting up for a fall crop. It's Labour Day weekend up here and I hope to get a lot of garden work done. Have a good weekend!

    Hi Quinn. I wasn't paying attention and almost missed your special month. Congratulations. I still love your profile picture. It's one of my favourite shots in the site overall. I'm glad to hear that your crops are getting more and more successful. I'm also planting for fall, mostly kale and lettuce. Would you believe the kale I planted last fall is still growing? It survived the winter and I harvested a bunch but left the main plants intact and they are growing again and around them, some of the seeds that dropped have started to grow and then I also harvested the seed pods and planted the rest of the seeds last week. Everything comes full cycle. Isn't it great?!
