"Now I have to say this is the worst year ever. The only thing good here at the farm are the sunsets. Critters, bugs, birds, weeds, ground hard as a rock, no raised beds yet, dragging hoses again GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!I miss my landlord too if something…"
"We had an other huge cloud go thru and pummel us with rain for a short while today. They come with loud thunder. I didn't get to do any gardening today as mowed the school lawn and went to CAC for help. Still may go out tonight to find…"
"My cukes are blooming, I too need to figure out where to plant Zuc. One of my blueberry plants died wonder what was in that blue barrel thing I put it in. Don't remember but thought I drilled holes in the bottom, must have been too hot for…"

"Thank you for birthday wishes, Sat. was my sweet 16th rebirth day, today I have 25 yrs clean and sober. Yes I have air conditioning, would be miserable here without it. Still 100s and 90s here and we are in a drought as not much snow pack last…"

Hi, thanks for responding. They came up lovely and healthy. They flowered and then the flowers didn't turn into beans. I did everything I thought was correct according to all info.
