4/24 update...

today was my last day of getting off early, dw has been up north seeing her father< been in and out of hospitals> somebody had to let the dogs out....... wink wink.....

figured it was a great time to run the tiller though the main garden, might even do a final till Wednesday. they are calling for rain thurs- sunday from sprinkles to a quarter inch. hopefully it's on the light side really want to get the children in the ground. either way get to play in dirt...
do need to run the mini tiller along the wild flower fence. for some reason they don't understand to stay on their side....

HAPPY 2023 GARDENING SEASON....

Major, I grow my zucchini on a 4’ metal stake. I really like this method. I didn’t get any powdery mildew and it allows me to plant a couple kale plants in front of it.

This pic is of it in late season.
I would not have thought it possible to grow a zucchini vertically. The bushes always seem like a big blob, with no vine. Does the plant have a tendency to vine more it you train it upwards? I would love to be able to do this!

Did you tie it to the stake? Not even your zucchini is allowed to be messy! :lol:

Hey! YOU didn’t poke that hole in the tank! That looks like a SQUIRREL attack if I ever saw one! Blasted SQUIRRELS! Mean, vicious, terrible little creature that plot against us! Yup. SQUIRREL attack!

I have first hand knowledge of SQUIRREL attacks! I was driving down the road, minding my own business, when a suicidal SQUIRREL jumped out in front of my 2022 Hyundai Accent car. KA-THUMP! That blasted Kamakazie SQUIRREL dragged the plastic skid plate and cracked the bumper. A SQUIRREL! A DINGBLASTED SQUIRREL!! A body shop charged me $625 to fix the bumper and order a new plastic piece. All because of a stupid dead SQUIRREL!!!

Your tank is plastic. SQUIRRELS know this. SQUIRRELS are out there waiting……

BEWARE THE SQUIRRELS !!!!!

If you keep yelling "SQUIRREL!" you might find yourself surrounded by dogs.

I'm surprised that a squirrel could do that much damage to a car... but then, I guess everything is bigger in Texas. :D
