Thanks for the garden pics, Don. In the Phila area we've had a warm rainy spring. All of the subtropical plants are lush and covered with flowers.

Large gardens are, of course, a lot of work, but if you have the time and the energy, the results are bound to be gratifying, as we can all attest.  Let me offer four photos to document my 2015 garden's progress; April 30, May 12, May 24, and June 30. 

It has been a slow, wet spring and early summer here in northern Vermont (and my peppers and cantaloupes are a joke), but it's finally begun to warm up.

Finally rained a little (0.19 inch), which gave me about 100 gallons in my rain barrels.  Yea.

I enjoy looking at people's gardens and produce also.  Pictures are nice.  I'm also jealous of the large gardens Randall, Daniel, and others have.

Chris, the carrots can be judged by the size of the greenery and, when they are ready, you should see the orange root breaking the surface, beneath the tops. At least that's the way l do it.

Chris, I posted my response in Discussions.

Ramadan-rabbits, Randall? What a fantastic place you have!

Comment by Barbara Livingston on July 8, 2015 at 8:39am

Chris, you are so right! What little I planted I had no clue as to when to harvest - pretty much by sight. Except you can't see carrots until you pull them, and I pulled too soon. Luckily the bunnies liked them anyway.  went by the growing time on the seed packet.

Randall, I enjoy everybody's pictures! My gosh, your garden is HUGE! I planted 8 sweet potato plants, lol.

Comment by Randall Smith on July 8, 2015 at 8:11am

I just downloaded some garden photos to share (not that anybody really cares). The first was taken two months ago, just starting. The cans were used to cover up fledgling (sp?) sweet potato starts (at night, so rabbits won't eat them). Notice my rows are weird--triangular pattern for a change this year.

The second photo is looking in the opposite direction (cans gone). Oops, the photos came up reversed.

Comment by Randall Smith on July 8, 2015 at 7:44am

I've discovered sweet potato plants have a mind of their own! Some hills look pathetic, with hardly any progress, while others are spreading like crazy. But 25 out of 30 hills are looking good, so that should supply me with enough potatoes to last a year. That is, if the voles don't get to them first. I have to be vigilant.
