    Getting back to the basics...working on what I can do right now to be more prepared. Tired of politics and molecular virology lol. Seeds were from Thomas Jefferson's Monticello victory garden packs.

    Surprised one of your neighbors hasn't called the Code Enforcement Nazis.

    So far my neighbors have been very supportive. In a way it has helped me meet more of them as they always stop to make a comment or tell me a story when they are on walks....the best part is other neighbors are starting their own gardens after they have seen mine and how it is coming out.

    For the most part yes. My strategy was to overplant (about 3-4x) the amount of seedlings I would need and then cull out the weaker plants once they get to be about the size they are in the picture. I have moved them around to try and mix up what is growing together in terms of compatible plant heights and the way the sun moves. The last was sprinkling in marigolds to help with attracting pollinators and hopefully pest reduction. TBD

    you need to keep up the front yard garden standards >>> I don't see a cucumber growing in a toilet or a single busted up old shipping pallet - you're giving it a bad name ....

    Either it's REAL hot where your bee hives are, or they are getting ready to swarm. Time to add another super on top.

    Come the pandemic famine, the code enforcement nazis will be going to @Catllus for planting and growing tips to establish gardens along the sidewalk nature strip as well as their front gardens. ;)

    It is REAL hot and humid here right now... Heat indexes in the 100s and sooo humid. I did just add a super to the two side hives... My middle one has been weaker since the start...I checked for mites etc...but it looked good the other day.
