@almstdone: I know, I have not seen rain in ages, except a bit this morning. Wow the 10% chance. I don't know what area your in-- towards the Mtns or near Athens, but its dry everywhere. We had a few forest fires near our areas but nothing close.
The smoke has/had been aweful and our neightbor burns wood for heat.
As for me watering been not as hard as yours, as I only had 1 plant. But dragging that waterhose around got to be a chore. So, best idea ever was to keep a ol' milk jug around and fill it daily from the sink. Still got tons producing, just not turning color.
And sorry to Hear ben on the issues with the greenhouse. That baby is huge.

R.I.P.
The last cold snap this past weekend took the plant, literally it was in so poor shape and leaves wilted. I had plenty of promising tomatos on it.
So, next project was pepper jelly!!!!!!

Unfortunately yes. The last major hot streak we had that killed about 80% of my crop took the pumpkin out also. That thing was growing at an amazing rate. You could actually see the size increase day to day.

I even covered the entire plant with shade cloth and it was not enough.

In a very narrow band we had horrible growing conditions. 20-30 miles away in any direction got enough rain that their crops done OK but the rain just kept missing us. Even the outside gardens sucked this year and you can't hardly kill one of those usually.

Putting the offer of free chocolate cherry tomato seeds out again this year. They need to be started inside 8-16 weeks before you transplant them outside. The time varies by how you start them and how big you want them when you transplant.

Would be happy to answer any seed starting questions.

PM me your address if you would like some this year.

You are not alone. Last year I had collards all winter long. This year I got more creative, planting kale and chard. The streak of below-freezing days crushed everything except one kale plant. Very disappointing.

OH NO!!!!
We are finally getting our 1st snow coming today in Georgia.
Everyone is in frantic mode and schools are ending early.
WHAT!!! Over 1-4 inches of snow.
Only here in Georgia this happens. Urging everyone off the roads by 4pm. Geesh.

As for Kale..never ate any or grew any. I hear it mention a ton on shows, like Dr Oz and Rachael Ray etc.
Really I don't eat many greens at all. What it taste like??? And how to grow it? Anyhting like spinach, cabbage etc.

LOL 1-4 inches of snow is what we call a lite dusting.

To me kale is like spoiled lettuce dusted with dirt. The only thing worse is swiss chard, it is like salty dirty lettuce.
