My garden is off to a slow start. We had a lot of cool weather.
Looking good Hoarder.
What are all those containers made from?

Concrete. The round ones are well pits and the rectangular ones are railroad switchgear battery boxes. The very last raised bed I made of guardrails.

No pics. The guardrail beds are a great idea for anyone that can weld. It sells used around $2 a foot. Just weld 4" plates on the end or a piece of 4" square tubing and paint it grey. Never rot out.

To Newmisty's point about the banana pepper, seems to be how they role. Here is my largest of the peppers so far. Tiny plant, bigish pepper.

Bee balm starting to open. Not sure if I mentioned this before, bee balm is not only decorative but is also an edible herb. I tried a leaf a couple weeks ago and it tasted much like basil. Not bad at all.

Even though I am not a fan of thistle I decided to let a couple of those grow as well

It's so hard for me to capture the brilliance of color these Canna lillies have with my camphone. Think I did pretty good today though.
I created a little bed in the back 40 a couple years ago and it has a pretty rich environment where I transplanted some of the canna's so that lilly is already over 6ft tall! (Last pic)

So the 2020 garden has been like the year 2020 , wtf is gonna happen next!?......

hail , hurricane winds , furnace heat with 40-60 mph wind made feel like throwing in the towel , feck

in the meantime , as an anti-dentite , this is the second time I’ve beat out and endured about 90 days of tooth pain and pulled my own molar or jaw tooth out

here is my entertaining video of the procedure

Was weeding the property just now and came across a lone Rose of Sharon flower on my border in the woods.

I cant see photos unless i right click and open in a new window and still cant post but thought I would comment about the peppers. From the photos I have seen they are about the same size as mine. I don't even bother with the first peppers this early. Pluck them soon as you see them and force them to grow bigger before setting fruit. You'll be rewarded later in the year with larger harvests.

Feel for your guys.
It's dry, then when you get precip, it is masquerading as rocks.
I had a great blueberry bush ready to pick.
This morning I looked out the window & 2 white tails were cleaning it off.
Always something...

I worked on dozens of organic farms in the Northeast when most of the farmers were struggling to make ends meet. Since then most of them hit it big with solar farms sited on their properties and expanded operations. Check out the online pages for Harlow's organic operation in Westminster, VT or Sanders Farm in Compton, PQ. If you stay in your field that long without making major mistakes "they will come" and you will prosper financially. Spiritual is another matter.....

‘Vitamin Weed’: Neuroscientist says cannabis oil slows down aging process



Neuroscientist Dr. Michele Ross says she believes everyone can benefit from ‘vitamin weed’, or daily cannabis oil use. “Cannabis is the key to unlocking preventative medicine,” says Dr. Ross. “It helps protect your DNA from damage so it can actually slow down the aging process. I think everyone should use cannabis oil, you should learn about it, you shouldn’t be afraid.”

Its true.

The Spinalcracker looks a just few years older than when I met him, nearly 2 decades ago.

The wife and I ran into him recently, we were surprised.

He must be saturated in the shit.
