Is it ever going to stop raining?

BTW, if anyone is interested in the elevated raised beds that I posted a photo of above, I have detailed photos showing how to build one. PM me.

some current pix. Harvesting radishes from the greenhouse and cauliflower, broc., pumpkins, cucumber, cabbage, and sweetcorn plants getting about ready to set out.
First strawberry flowers opening too. Onions greening up, potatoes not up yet. Just planted radishes, turnips, spinach, parsnips, and beets. Still gotta plant carrots and a few odd things.

Interesting growing radishes in the greenhouse in plastic pots.

These are Earthboxes we bought 30 years ago. You can grow most everything in them.

Kinda got behind on resize pix.! Anyway so far some of the stuff is doing good some not so hot right now.
Taters, onions, cabbage, and strawberries doing the best. First 8 rows of sweetcorn a foot tall or more, mid 8 rows gave a dozen plants so he came back and replanted the next 8 and made 4 more and none of it is up.

So Jealous!!!! I just started planting the garden last weekend. (late, but better late than never)
Guess I'm off the watering duty. Rain every day. Not sure I'm going to get all the tomatoes in. Guess I should be wearing waders and start a hydroponic garden!
Can we grow rice in Michigan????

My bride finished planting the garden earlier this week. I get to pound in the stakes, do the heavy lifting, take care of the fencing, and cut the grass and use the clippings for weed control.
Strawberry, Asparagus, and Raspberries (Canes) are out front and benefitted greatly from removing two (2) huge white pines on our neighbors property.

First picking of strawberries from the new bed. Plants were put in April 2023 after a complete revamp in the fall of 2022.

Vegetable Garden in the backyard. Decided not to do corn this year in the old chicken yard (beyond the shed), but will use it for the vine crops.

No idea, I didn't pick them. I did snitch 3 when I got home from work even though I'm not supposed to have anything with seeds, nuts, or quinoa this week. The gastroenterologist will probably see them Friday morning :lol:

Don,
They are the "Jewel" variety.
