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.

Your garden sounds so very awesome and I'm so sorry for what happened. All the hard work, the time, energy, pride, and yummy veggies. That destruction would feel as bad as finding like smashed kittens or baby birds. LOL. It had to have been such a shock seeing it.

Small comfort, but you are so blessed to have a guy that tries to help, even if it does go wrong sometimes. It's worth far more than any amount of vegetables.....but I praise your restraint for not murdering him. LOL. You'll have another garden just as good or better. If not, there's always the pool. sunnywthr
