My tomatoes are just about done, cukes have another dozen or so on the vines. I tried to plant more plants but they are not doing much right now. Damm Deer ate all my leaves off of my Okra plants. They do not care for my hot peppers plants for some reason..... The habaneros are really slow ripening this year. JalapeŮos are a bumper crop this year. At least I will have some great chili!

I’m more than pleased with my little hillbilly garden. Everything went well except the green beans. Hardly got enough to cook 2 bunches.

The beans are tapering off, we still get about 7-10 gallons of Big Momma roma tomatoes. They are huge. Water melons are plentiful, we cannot keep up with all of them.

Early hard frost killed my corn, green beans, and potato plants. Canning as much as I have time for.

Thought Iíd put this here. Anyone have an indoor herb garden of sorts? Iím thinking of wall mounted plants (rosemary, thyme, basil), but Iím afraid of light. There are two big windows near where I would mount them, but I donít know if they have to have direct sunlight. Anyone doing some similar?

Culinary herbs will do fine inside by the window.

There all dead, Sir. The zucchini, tomatoes, peppers, beets, and few beans the deer left. Pulled all the remnants up today.

Farmer who owns land across the road was feverishly getting the rest of their peppers out of the field before the first frost tonight. They had a ton of work to do and did not get it all done when I got out of the woods. I may have to do a raid tonight with an A bag!

Top,

Take that mess and feed it to your chickens. They’ll eat it.

Too much for the chicken, Find a friend what raises hogs and drop it off there.

I’ll tell my joke about how to feed hogs later.

June screwed us bad. I think it was something like the darkest recorded June on record.

Cucumbers did great, should end up with around 20-24 quarts of pickles plus about a gallon of pickle kimchi when these last batchs are done, 14 quarts of a chow chow type mix, 70 pounds of potatoes, bunch of green beans in the freezer, onion and garlic did fine but we didn't plant enough (first try with them) and all the small stuff did good. Tomatillos are about ready and the hot peppers will hopefully get some heat.

2nd round of cauliflower and broccoli aren't going to make it (didn't have the room because of the crap June weather so started way to late), squash is coming along and the runner beans are finishing up and the pintos came out ok, but the tomatoes are killing me- everything besides cherries just started ripening a couple weeks ago. Going to get some but not enough for what we planted. Have to see how the late season turnips come out.

Not bad for the area we use for a garden but could have been better. Learning a lot at least.

I'm gonna burn mine next week, sow it in winter wheat and give it a year off next year. I have an alternate spot up on my deer foodplot I'm gonna use and give my back yard garden a year. Gonna fertilize it good and let it sit next year.

HH6 is really into herbs. What exactly do you want to know?

We are still harvesting beans and canning tomatoes. We get about 30-40 lbs to giant roma tomatoes a day. Gotta dig up the sweet potatoes this week. We also got about 10 lbs of onions and white potatoes.

Planted 2 pecan trees. Gonna cut else everything down, till it all up, cover it with fabric and cover it with mulch. The crabgrass was brutal this year, despite all efforts.

Bartlettís are ready, lost a little over a bushel to windfall last week. Still have 4 or 5 to pick Sat. The later hot weather sent the sugar thru the roof.

Honey crisps outta finish just as sweet.

Not going to happen this year, but one day Iíll squeeze Ďem & add little yeast....

Recommend am interior walk in closet with an exterior wall to vent... Usually through a charcoal filter.

Wanted to add I was tangentially involved with a guy in though island that made millions growing mushrooms indoors and selling them to whole foods. Indoor gardening is what you make it.

We put talk our veggie scraps in our worm bin and use the castings in our indoor garden to great effect. The "tea" that comes out the bottom really makes the flowers grow.
