New Growth

Went outside this morning and am afraid I will lose some plants to the frost.  Looks like I may have to replace the cucumbers and watermelon.  I pulled some burned leaves off the peppers but will take it slow with them to see if they will be alright.  Got some excellent pictures of the cool weather plants.  The peas are growing great and the cabbage is bolting I hope.  It looks like its finally heading up.

New pictures and thoughts

This past weekend I was able to get my raised pools done for the new garden plants.  As you can see I had some help.  Every bit of dirt that Will moved was done with those little beach sand shovels. He was fascinated with helping but got tired of it pretty quick.  I will get the old swing set placed over the pools soon to do trellis duty.  I aim to use the trellising for cucumbers and a whole bunch of green pole beans.  So far, everything is doing really well and the weather couldnt be better.  Hopefully I can get some okra started as I have had so so luck with it in the past. More to come.......
