      Thanks! I hope that everyone has something going at this point. I believe that it’s getting late.

        As my oldest daughter used to say when she was little…”I’m green with envious”!

        Very good job ‘rat, looks “professional”!!

          Thanks, Danny! Lots of work, but I think that this year (above all others) will be well worth the cost. We will eat. I have shared my tiller with others so they can get theirs planted. We will eat. Many will not.

    You’re right about many people not eating ‘rat, but as sad as it is they have made their own choice. Of course there are many that do not have the option of gardens but Jamie has proven it can still be done with a small amount of property. They just need the “can do” attitude like hers!

    You have done an excellent job putting this one in, very neat and manageable. Gardening is lots of hard work but it’s worth every minute of it when you set them brogans under the table!

      Thank you. And I did it without Mr. Greenjeans.

      Need to pick it already. Some of the zucchinis were 5+ pounds! Damn! I wasn’t expecting that.
