Thanks, Charlie. Anyone else have pics? I love looking at gardens....specially those that Geeksters have grown.
I have some more of the progress of the taters and gourds, but gotta go to a family dinner now. Will download them later.

Your garden looks fantastic.

Here's my little garden. The snow peas are on the right and we're starting to eat a few. When they're gone, I'll put cucumbers there.

There are four rows of peppers in the middle. Two rows of Corno di Toro which is a sweet pepper, a row of Mariachi peppers - something new I'm growing this year. They're supposed to be a mild chile pepper. And a row of Mucho Nacho Jalapenos. There are a few Serranos and Habanera in there, too. Somewhere around 50 pepper plants.

It's kind of hard to see the tomato plants in the left of the picture. Some of them are already at the top of the 5' tall cages. 19 Park's Whoppers and one Tomatillo. The largest tomato is a little bigger than a golf ball.

Everything is grown organically and I start all of the tomatoes and peppers from seed. I use black plastic mulch on top of soaker hoses.

Wow....you really are a pepper lover! Looks like the plastic and soaker hoses are working. Sure are a lot less weeds to pull, huh?
Thanks for sharing....looks great!

This is the old cattle waterer that I talked about in another thread. I've got gold fish, minnows and some tadpoles in it now. Fun to watch and the G'Babes love it!

You weren't kidding when you said you would have a garden. It looks beautiful and healthy!

Thanks for the pics Dabee. My plants are just starting to take off now. Once they get a little happier I will sent pics.

I'll try to get some photos tomorrow.. so little shady time, I just have to get in there and go after it.
Peas still coming on, we've been eating them for a week. pulled about a dozen carrots.. still short.. but yummy. First 2 cukes today... got some cowhorn peppers .. they are big enough, but are supposed to turn red. Golf ball sized maters, no taters, lots.. too much arugala.. a daily smattering of lettuce and spinich. Garlic is just about ready. Strawberries look like they are starting over.. we'll see.. melons, pumpkin, watermelon, squashes are hanging in there. The deer nibble a bit before Gonzai hears them, I guess.. they are not eaten to the quick, like last year.. just a few leaves nibbled.

Ok.. sleepy time now.. dreaming of mulch to hold the moisture in.
