I havent been to a store in a while. Occasionally the grocery store for fresh produce or fish, but I bought in bulk back in January and I should be ok for a few months at least.

I grew a garden this year, it was producing like crazy. I was eating green beans and radishes and my cucumbers were growing like they were on steroids. I was giving them another few days to get bigger before starting to pick them, well my dear husband fertilized it EVERYDAY FOR A WEEK! Now I have nothing but two tomato plants. They were the only thing to survive it. I wanted to ring his neck. I made him feel so bad, but damn it, I worked hard slinging cow shit over from the pasture and tilling it all in the dirt, planting the seeds and then laying hay down on all of it.

I know he was trying to help, but I went out there and said I think the sprinkler isnt coming on and he said he watered. The next day it looked even more wilted. Within three more days every leaf turned white. I have never seen plants just turn white like they were doused with clorox or something.

Now I am starting more green beans because I love them and we have a long growing season here, but I doubt I will get much of it canned. I dont think I will have enough time for that much. Peas and brocoli will go in late August unless its still way to hot.

I'm worried about a couple of my plants. The leaves on one of the watermelon plant is curling up. The other one seems fine. My zucchini plants don't seem to be doing much. just inch long squash. Tomato plants, on the other hand seem to be just fine. I hope they'll hurry though. For some reason, I keep thinking they should be moving along more than they are.
