you guys ar e bunch of teases.... up here in Maine...lets see... tomatoes abou t4 inches high. Peas a foot.... cukes wished they stayed in the greenhouse another week after the past few 45 degree nights. The potatoes are showing about 2 leaves, and the green beans are just about to pop out of the ground today. The garlic is about 16 to 24 inches... but then again they were all planted last October... Happy growing!
Considering our lattitude is far closer to Bangor, Me than it is to Memphis we're doing pretty good. Lots of pepper, cucumber and zuccinni blossoms but nothing more just yet. I did find an Early Girl tomato about the size of a large pea. Second planting of sweet corn is about 2" but spotty due to lack of moisture. First planting is about a foot high and looking great. Okra is maybe 1" and also spotty.
Strangely enough, vining plants from seed are ahead of nursery plants. So much for getting a head start.
Potatoes are doing poorly. I hope to get the seed back.

Most of my second planting of corn and both plantings of beans were evidently planted just for the benefit of the rabbits. Some of the first corn is waist high and tassled out. I picked and ate a grape tomato yesterday.

Corn is coming along nicely - much of it is taller than me. We did have to replant because of the weird weather a while back. We've been picking zucchini and squash like crazy. The zucchinis are huge. we sure could use some more rain though

Sounds like you have a couple of fine sons there. Later on they will think back and fondly remember the "tough" times with Dad. Those are memories and lessons no one can ever take away from them.
I bought an old tractor all dusty and worn,
knew nothing about her just the year she was born
I washed her and greased her and painted her red
Now she lives happily right here in my shed.

like beestingz says you guys are killing me. located about forty minutes away my tomatoes, potatoes, zucchini and all the rest are so small i have to carefully scan the dirt before walking across the garden. I am taking a chance and planting corn late this year, in another week. The last couple of years the soil was too cold at the beginning of june and it languished.
bust it? you bet I can!

Yes we have been through some trying times in which we will never forget. At least they had the opportunity to fulfill a vision they had. Hopefully someday we can laugh at some of the trying times we had together, but Iâ€™m sure there will be many more ahead.
My goal is to make them understand the importance of hard work, real world life along with a good education. Education, however in my opinion, probably out weighs everything. As you can see reading through my thread I have the lack of.
My oldest son is very smart; in fact his ACT testing scores rates him in the top 10% of the country but, in the common since part, he is the lowest 10%. This is why my wife and I decided to do this venture with our younger sons.
Iâ€™ve seen this done in other counties with great success. At least my younger sons know what it takes to make the â€œwheels go aroundâ€.
......Now; on to my oldest son for a crash course.
