    Well, I think I'm done, at least for the moment. I hate to brag... well, that's like total B.S... I love to brag on my garden. Now you sit there and look at these pictures I took with my little brownie box camera:

    When I was going around the garden fence with my Red Dragon killing weeds I came upon these little daisies in the last pic. I didn't have the heart to flame them so I left them alone. I showed them to Teresa and she's going to take them up and put them in a vacant corner of one of the boxes.

    Jim, everything looks so darn good. You know you make me jealous with that much gardening space you have. :confused:
    You still have so much left over room. Is this how big you want your garden? I assume what you have planted is plenty for you and your family. Of course I still haven't seen the orchard or the sweet corn. ;)

    Very nice Jim! You have every right to brag!

    Those little daisies look like our Oxeye daisies, which are listed on Idahos noxious weed list, but I always spare them from the weed whacker anyway. I won't tell if you don't!

    Shasta daisies, Jim? From one coast to the other . . .

    You didn't really do that with a Brownie Box camera, did you? How would that work? Scanning . . .

    Looks great!

    Mary, each year we add a new box or two to the garden. This year I added a large 4x8x12 box that we have planted sweet potatoes in. We also have a 48'x4' kind of a box that I've framed in a few years ago with one course of landscaping timbers. I'm going to go another level up this fall and fill it in completely with a garden mix and use it primarily for corn, okra, beans, pumpkins and winter squash. So given enough time we'll pretty much max out the garden space. We've fenced in a 48' x 80' area for the garden which I think should be plenty enough for the two of us and all of our friends and family.

    Oh, and the sweet corn will go down behind the chicken run. We don't each much corn but the chickens love it and we'll give a lot of it away at work or to our daughter. You ought to see what's left when I make a corn pinata of three or four ears tied together and hung from a cord in the chicken run. The hens go wild over it and what's left is a totally pecked over cob with not even a morsel of corn left.

    Jim, you're planting the corn in that 48'x4' raised bed? Won't it get too tall to pick? I don't think you would get in the bed and stand on the soil to pick the corn.
