    CL "free" score.

    Pickup truck load, of contractor bagged chicken manure. Bags are clean on outside, but It's powerful stuff, need to get it out of truck ASAP.

    That's going to have to go out in the field away from the house for a while. Not sure if better to leave in bags to compost? Or empty bags and cover with a lumber cover over it to prevent nitrogen loss? It's way too "hot" now for garden.

    edit: I need to check bags for how much bedding/poop ratio. If needed I've got a ton of wood chips for carbon.

    Lost a bunch of early blue berries , not to bears, but Turkeys. I've got a 12ga full choke drop in barrel for one of my MLers, need to fill that one up with #6s......

    Worried about the bears getting into bags if left in bags....

    Oh yes, we miss a couple of days and bam! a 2' tall spear! Oops! We have to harvest a couple times a week - then we put them in a glass of water in the fridge and build up a good batch to cook with dinner

    I've got a 2nd planting of boccollis, cabbages lettuces about ready to transplant. My maters got in late only a couple early ones making fruit, so lettuce will be ready for BLTs.

    I have a second batch of cauliflower soon coming ripe. Broccoli is almost all done, just a few side shoots now. Tomato’s are starting to get ripe. I have green peppers but I like to let them get red and sweeter. Beets failed and carrots mostly failed. Green beans are a few weeks away yet.

    Been picking zucchini, straight neck squash, asparagus, strawberries, cilantro, snap peas, string beans, Dragon beans, purslane, cucumbers, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage...
    cured most of the onions and all the garlic ( a little over 300 bulbs).

    did a 2nd planting of broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage.

    Carrots aren't doing great, but we've had some. Beets are doing poorly. Artichokes are starting to come up. We'll have dozens of sweet pie pumpkins. Butternut squash is growing well as are the Delicata and spaghetti squash. Corn is also Sloooowly getting there - but very late. We've been picking and eating blueberries and the wild blackberries are starting to ripen.

    I do a small harvest every other day to keep up...
