Hand watering now to keep them going.
    Finally had some Cherokees ripen a few days ago tasty they are!

    Our first round of crops were a huge success but now that the summer heat and drought has hit "The Rolling Plains Of Dixie" at Slippy Lodge, everything but the Peppers are dying off. We planted a second round of tomatoes (plants, not seeds) and went out of town for last weekend and the heat lack of rain killed half of the new tomato plants.

    Herbs are also struggling and second planting of carrots from seeds are puny at best. Temps have been in the mid 90's and we haven't had significant rain in at least 2 weeks.

    Good luck all to the north of us,

    Were canning green beans today. Picked 33 lbs this week so not a bad week. We do french style so it takes a little longer to slice them and then canning. Put another 5 lbs of supersweet 100 tomaotes in the dehydrator yesterday. Thinking of dehydrating some cucumbers to use in winter salads. But thats for another day. Picked concord grapes yesterday. so its grape jam making for tomorrow. Busiest canning weekend so far

    Took a stroll out to the garden. I looked around and just see nothing but blessings from above. I know we have done a lot of things to improve our garden this year but I truely believe the good Lord is providing for a long winter. Our garden is still going stong. Some tomatoes have played out but others are going strong. We have dehydrated over 50 lbs of supersweet 100's. I estimate we have picked at least 75 lbs maybe more. Cucumber aren't going to waste there used as chicken feed and treats. Bell peppers have been frozen and dehydrated. I have no idea how many pounds of produce we had picked but I'm sure its way north of 1000 maybe over 2000. Thank you Lord!

    Yep, me to! All my peppers and tomato plants bit the dust this year and I am at a loss as to why. Even my fake plants died. I am a goner once my stores run out.
