Great pictures William, love your set up. Hope you have success during winter. I had stemmed potatoes, carrots, snow peas and broccoli. All out of my garden, makes you feel good about the world when you can grow your food.

Looks good William you could probably plant garlic or onions right in with the cabbages to for sure deter bugs. How did the cucs grow next to onions. I don't have my companion book with me but I know they don't like strong smelling herbs.

I will purchase a heating mat for February seed starting & hope it is enough to get through the last frosts. That's about as early as I can begin again. The kale may survive too. I haven't checked to see if it bounced back yet. I try to grow what I juice.

Lorraine the cantaloupe were seeds from the year before that were from the fruit we bought at the store and went into the compost pile over winter and just came up on there own. I had more than I had over 20 years. We cut them up and froze them to eat over the winter. We had a lot of tomatoes and froze them whole. I have heat in mine but I don't run it for it's to expensive.

William, beautiful photos & you are fortunate to grow cantaloupe. I tried both under my green roof & in the greenhouse this very nice summer, but both fruits were tiny so --the temps still were not high enough at night. Store bought cantaloupe just isn't the same unless you buy organic. I have noticed a big difference so I don't waste my $ anymore on farm factory grown. Planted kale & cabbage, lettuce & spinach in the greenhouse but we had a hard freeze the last two weeks with no heat in there. Not going to take a picture of the devastation. . .

I want to get some chickens but I think the big dog out in the pasture would eat them or some guinea hens to help with the insects and worms.

This first bed I had planted cucumbers, crook neck squash and butternut squash, I got 1 crook neck and that was it. I had volunteer Cantaloupe, tomatoes 2 kinds and hot peppers come up and that did me all summer long. I had to replant the cucumbers but they were great mixed with onions in the back bed.

Armenian Cucumbers that I grew.

Some big cantaloupe you don't get these in the stores.
