    I figured as much about the roots but figured I'd nothing to lose by placing them in the ground. That's encouraging that you've transplanted that late and had them survive.

    I think I have a few things going for me on transplanting right now...we are getting plenty, plenty and more plenty of rain, so that should help them establish in the new spot.

    Could be. I'll see if I can scavenge me up a rhubarb from folks who don't want theirs. The local nursery had some in at the beginning of the season, but they looked so poorly that I wouldn't buy one.

    Craig's list has a free wanted section. I often see people posting looking for a plant.

    I'll try that! We have a publication that comes out every Wed. here that's all free ads and some business ads. I can advertise there too.

    Wonder if those folks on CL ever GET their plants they are looking for. One can only try, eh?

    Raining buckets here last few days, so the rhubarb is getting well watered into place. Will move the remaining plant today before it rains again.

    The garden is looking GREAT so far, though the cukes have some chemical burns from the dishsoap I've sprayed on them...I'm hoping that heals up. Lots of bloom on them, but no little cukes that I can see.

    The rhubarb seems to have survived the transplanting and is putting off new shoots, but that could be due to all the surplus rain we've had. They may not make it after this very hot week coming up....may have to water them now and again.

    The tomatoes are strong and beautiful, many of them with little tomatoes but a need to set on more bloom...some are blooming great, others have got a lot of foliage but little bloom so far. I didn't over fertilize the matos so they should start producing more blooms soon.

    The beans are looking great and are reaching the tops of the trellises and beyond...so far those on the trellises have not had problems with JBs but the Fortex planted around the fence posts on the east end of the garden are getting eaten up....sacrificial plants. Lots of blooms on the beans, so should get some enough to can up a bit. Planting them between the matos and cukes just may help them avoid pests...at least, that's what I'm hoping. July hasn't happened yet, so we've got a lot of pest days ahead.

    Pumpkins are taking over the whole garden and it isn't even July. It's only two plants but they are spreading all over 1/4 of the garden...by fall they will be across the entire garden. Yellow squash are putting on fruit, looking healthy...found some squash bug eggs under one leaf, gave it a bath in soapy water. Hope that kills them.

    Peppers are looking great, growing well and I continue to prune off buds, little peppers and suckers until they are much bigger.

    Raspberries are big and ripening up faster than I can keep up with them...the JBs are chewing on them some along the tops of the canes.

    The onions are still about 1/4 the size of the same kind I planted at Joel's, at the same time. And his are shaded horribly by his spud vines.

    Greens are growing well under the tunnels but the lettuce seed in the tray had bad germination rates....will not be sourcing FedCo for lettuce seeds any longer. Need to order more lettuce seed before August rolls around and I need to get all the tunnels planted to greens for a winter harvest.

    For once. Seems like it's been a long time since I had one of those.

    You deserve it Bee after all your hard work. Hope those pests stay away long enough for you to get a good harvest.

    Took progress pics of the garden last evening...things seem to be growing well, though this sudden higher heat sent all my romaine into a bolt so quickly I couldn't pick them all and use them. Story of my life.

    The pink honeysuckle over the gate seems to have recovered from all the aphid damage of earlier in the spring~I had cut all the damaged parts off that I could reach. Getting a handful or two of raspberries each day but still can't keep up with how quickly they ripen...the bugs are getting some of them. JBs, mostly. The pumpkins are taking over the garden, as per usual...only planted two of them but they have been loving all the rain and heat, so are growing like Audrey 2 out there.

    The vine on the arch is butternut squash and a Brandywine tomato on the left, a cherry mato and two cukes on the right. Pumpkins in the foreground.

    Sweet, sweet raspberries, thanks to LG!

    Sweetums...could watch this kitten for hours! He's so very funny in his playing with Flash and by himself.

    This is what grew from planting the stump of a store bought onion...weird, huh?

    My bee balm bloomed! Isn't she lovely? Haven't seen a bee one on it.

    Have to keep pulling these pumpkin vines out of the taters, off the fence, off the mato trellises, etc. You name it, it's invading it.

    [​IMG]Shouldn't have planted these yellow squash so close to the peppers...they are crowding them for sunlight. I have four yellow squash growing this year, but these planted in the landscaping fabric are the most huge and healthy of them all. As you can see, I have healthy peppers getting bigger and bigger. Still pinching off the bloom so as to encourage more energy to the roots, but they are getting so much bloom that I'm finding it a little daunting to keep up. I'm going to stop removing those now that the plants are good and established and just let them do their thing.

    Flash, the garden cat...he still loves sleeping in the garden, which I love about him. Now he's getting Sweetums into the garden, so maybe I'll get another garden lovin' cat.

    i like your kitty names Bee :)

    your squash may crowd from the sides but if you keep it from smothering the peppers i think they'll be ok.
