My spring and summer garden wasn't worth two flips. Several messes of yellow crook necks and about 15 butter nuts. My fall plants, collards, 3 kinds of cabbage and 2 kinds of lettuce and my late tomatoes "cherry" type or salad tomatoes, are doing fine.
I got me a new camera and as soon as I learn to use it I will post some new pics. :)don2

I had a good crop this summer and then got real busy with work.   Only good one mess of beans picked and let the rest go.   Okra turned hard.   Cantaloupe rotted.   Chicken ate the tomatoes as they fell on the ground (along with the cucumbers and squash). Plowed everything but the sweet potatoes under this weekend.  Need to put some greens in now if I can come up with some time.

I planted a huge garden of greens. I plan to share. Turnips, mustard, cabbage, collards, and rutabagas. We are about a week away from our first harvest.

Haven’t heard much on the news about Atlanta running out of water like we did a couple of years ago.  I know it’s been hot down there, but are the reservoirs back up to normal levels from winter rains?

I am 70+ miles south east of Atlanta, So there water supply has no effect on me. I am out in the sticks 17 miles from the nearest town. We had several streams dry up and the big ones was down to a trickle this year. :)don2

our garden was a bust also. what the rabbits and dear did not get the drought did. we did have several Topsy turvy plants. but they produced very little also. watered them 3 times a day. still dried up. I live on walnut creek that draws from the Piedmont wildlife refugee. I got down to about a foot but never dried up. it feeds into the Ocmoggee river. in Macon.All our wild blackberries dried up and the flowers did not last so the spring/summer flow dried up also. but sense the fall rain came the goldenrod has blasted. and the bees are going crazy as soon as it warms up in the mornings. the hives smell strong so the bees are making good progress now.

No wonder I didn't know who he was. He was The one I blamed for the summer heat Lips Sealed.
I am not sure if I have heard of your nephews. I on the west side of Jones. out Hwy 18. I right now only know of 4 for sure. One is a Older woman who lives on upper River rd. her and her late husband use to have several 100 hives years ago. she now just has 1 or 2 she keeps at the house. I have not had a chance to go talk to her about things that her and her husband did learned about hives in the area. I have been making nuc traps for the pass few weeks. trying to get them ready for spring. I am going to locate them on the levee in Macon. I have seen thousands of mild tempered bees out there. hope to grab a few swarms there. I am also setting up a few traps at the reservoir in Macon. I have seen a couple of hives in the area that I could not get access to.  pm me if you want to get together one day and maybe we can set it up to have a small group get together. I like going to the perry meetings but they are hard to attend because of the time crunch of work and distance. but if we can have get togethers closer plus also find out problems and success's above the fall line here.

I went to the meeting a couple years ago that was held at the Jones co. Gov. complex where the school use to be. At that time there was talk of getting a meeting started in Gray at that location but it didn't get off the ground.
There should be enough Bee Keepers in this area to get one started in the TRI county area.
I have been running slack for the last year or two. Lost down to one colony and had a swarm come in this past spring, so I just let both build and didn't disturb them. Now I have got to get into them and put some beetle traps in. Other than that I haven't had any problem with them sense the first year CCD hit me and took it's toll. Like 3 or 4 years ago. Hope to get back in the groove, My customers miss my honey. :)don2

My garden did do squat this year.  I am in north Texas and it was hot and dry for along time.   Since then I have sold my house and will be starting a over again before long.  Planning on a good planting of fruit trees and maybe start a small vineyard.

Hi......
Right now, before you forget, put a rubber band around your wrist to remind you of one gardening task that cannot be postponed: Planting seeds for your fall garden. As summer draws to a close, gardens everywhere can morph into a tapestry of delicious greens, from tender lettuce to frost-proof spinach, with a sprinkling of red mustard added for spice.

My fall "greens" garden has been outstanding. I have been able to bless many friends with a pot full of greens. I have eaten so many that the whites of my eyes have a green tint.
