Beware what happens when you buy a Cub. You might end up with way to much garden!

That's not a bad thing. A buddy of mine sold $1,500 worth of turnip greens a couple of years ago. He had them in his pickup bed and sold them by the bushel. He measured out a bushel in a basket and then transferred them to a trash bag for the customer. This was all done in a few days.

I know exactly what you mean. That looks really familiar. :lol: :lol:

And the 6 rows of okra next to the corn....I broke and sold enough okra to pay for 3 pretty good Cubs, well my kind of Cubs....the ones that are not running or need some TLC.

No deer in the greens so far. I did see a nice buck and a doe on the corner of my property yesterday morning about a 1/4 mile away from the patch. I did well on my potatoes this season, tomatoes, corn and peppers did ok. I have about 3/4 acre in gourds and pumpkins and the deer damaged one section of the pumpkins and so far have not messed with the rest.
