William so glad you are safe! I need to call a couple I work for to see how their daughter and her family are in TX.

I mentioned my beans were peeking out they are actually up and doing well last I looked. I need to get out there and try to cover the strawberries and blueberries. I still haven't gotten a strawberry yet. Dang birds grrrrrrrrrrrr! I had cut back some kale and it is coming back too. My cucumbers are up too have first set of leaves. Pics later my puter is too full of pics etc and is really slow need to figure out how to get them out of puter and into sticks and CDs.

Vicky We are doing fine, we live on top of a hill so everything runs away from us but the surrounding areas are a little worst off especially the ones that live near the river. I heard that one of the bridges got wiped out down the back road a few miles from here but that's the 3rd time it happened since we live here19 years. That is the worst here local but it gets real bad next to the big rivers. We didn't go to church because the roads are always closed going over the river when we have a lot of rain. We have a record rain fall here in the city of close to 19" and have 2 to 4" more coming plus. They are showing in the 9 day fore cast rain all this week and then it clears up for at least a week. My Spaghetti Squash is looking great so far. I really need to get some more boxes made for the other plants that need planted.

Place I am staying gave me a bottle of saved runner beans. So when get home try to find some poles to train them up. If house does not sell by Fall I will have another cache of veggies for over winter.

Wow William looking good I so wish I was that far along. Thank you for the pics to drool over. I have 2x8s in a lean to roof that I wish were my raised beds already. I like purple beans they will turn green when you boil them. I eat em right off the plant raw. Mine were peeking out of the strawberry boxes already the other day. Got planted by the new moon and were up in 2 days. I got a pack of mixed purple, yellow and green. At least each one is different so I could put like ones together in the same box. Still sunshinny no rain today.

A couple I clean for told me the irrigation people told them they can only water their lawns 2 days a week for only 1/2 an hour. Glad to hear it so we can save the water to grow food.

Glad this site is finally planting and talking vegies. William I am impressed with al the storms you've had your vegetables look wonderful. My vegetables are all planted but because of our drought I am very aware of what I plant and where. I am using a lot of compost and have installed a drip system on most things. Nationally the media seems to concentrate on the drought in California but in Oregon we are 10" below our normal rainfalland we have NO snowpack so we are in for a bad summer. Hopefully with the drip system which only waters each plant and not bare dirt I will save water although I have a great well. My strawberries are full of fruit and even a few almost ripe, thornless blackberries are loaded with blooms and raspberries are beginning. My blueberries are loaded with berries so it looks like a good crop all around. Tomatoes are an experiment this year as (except for Romas  and Early Girl) I am planting all Heirlooms which will be fun and interesting. Happy Vegetable time!!!

You got quite the gardens William. Taken me 10 years to where I am at with veggies. I also used garlic from grocery store and friend gave me from his garden. Relative gave me some Egyptian Onions, hopefully bunny or deer or even pheasants have not ravaged, nothing else planted. Forgot to cut rhubarb and bring with me to make into something other end where staying. I hope this time after trim my dwarf apple produces something to eat. So that is where my gardens are for now till I get home.
