Going great guns

The Garden is well under way. We have potoatoes coming up like crazy, there are blosoms on our Early Girls and away it goes.

We had rain all morning and I threw some buckets out to catch a little. We caught about 30 gallons between our two 25 gallons buckets and the cooler we had out. I know that sounds like alot, because it is, we put the buckets at the valleys of the roof, so we were using most of the roof as a capture surface.

I will try to get a few more pictures up in the next few days.

By way of report, the tomatoes are doing significantly better in the lasagna boxes. I replaced the two dead toms with new Red Beefsteak heirlooms on Saturday. The new transplants seem to be doing well. Even though the Toms are doing better in the lasagna beds, the pumpkins we planted the same day are going nuts.

On a final note, we now have Carrots, Corn, Grapes, Lettuce, Peas, Potatoes, Pumpkins, Radishes, Rubarb, Spinach, Squash, Tomatoes, Various Herbs and even more in the garden.
