The Lord spared our home we had a minimum of 6 tornadoes headed for us yesterday 3 of them North ,South and N east of us but 3 was headed straight for us. We went under ground and we are all right but hundreds of people lost there home around us. They are saying a possibility of 2 EF-4 hit and there is more coming this afternoon at about 2PM just as strong. I know this has nothing to do with gardening but I am so Scared. Thank you for letting me talk about this my garden is doing good I may have to plant more green beans only 1 row came up. but all the yellow beans came up and they were planted a week after the green ones.
William you stay safe! We had a nasty wind kick up again today. I saw about your bees and worms in the other thread was going to tell you that you sounded like a new pa pa. Hope they do well for you.
Vicky you have very good ideas. I do have several 6 inch PVC pipe 8ft long out in the Barn I could use I would need to drill holes in them and stick them in the ground. I guess I can do that latter . I planted them in between the Maters for they started drying out and wanted them in the ground. I went to pinterest and found some good ideas. It's been a real busy week I got Honey bees and worms for composting then planting and took out strawberries that didn't grow today and going to take them back to where I got them. Severe weather coming I got to go.

Strawberry pyramids or spirals look good too. We built one at my neighbor's when I gave her strawberries with gray rocks.
You can always plant them in galvanized tubs, boxes, hanging planters. Tomatoes like garlic, collards, bee balm, chives, & basil planted by them also asparagus.
Just planted 50 Strawberry plants and I have no place to plant the other 50 unless I plant them in between the tomato plants. Will it work. I am going to find out.
Bob I copied the name of the beans so I can try them.
Vicky just went in to get my A1C results a little high but not bad. I'm going to bed now.
Your garden is looking great, Vicky. I planted beets and cucumbers today. I bought more pole bean seeds but I don't know where to put them. My little yard is full. We are back in the 60's after a couple of weeks in the 80's. I like the 60's better but I think the garden would do better with the 80's.
