    Hi my fellow Stewbies, boy it's been a very long time since I have posted anything, but I still do check in from time to time. I hope everyone is doing well. My daughter and son in-law was in need of some garden space, as the garden they were using before was sold off. We allowed them to have their new garden on our place, and I am enjoying working in it myself. We started with unbroken ground so it had to be plowed and tilled several times to get it ready for planting along with soil test being sent off for the proper fertilizers and amounts that needed to be added. The garden is about 80' x 90' in size. They have planted green beans, okra, celebrity slicing tomatoes, Amish paste tomatoes, Okra, bell peppers, banana peppers, corn, purple hull peas, cucumbers, cantaloupe, and watermelons. To be a brand new garden it is coming along quiet nicely I think. I have been busy building a fence around the garden area to keep the cows out of it. I will post a few photos as soon as I remember how! Have a good day!

    Gorgeous piece of farmland you have there! Immaculate and weed free. I wish my cat wouldn't feel the need to dig in my plot.

    Keep us updated!
