Just wanted to thank all the folks here at the SFG forum for all the
free flowing advice!

And Post on my SFG progress.

I had several empty squares this season do to lack of time and
Ideas on what to plant but what I did get in has done well, except
for the spinach it bolted before we got a single leaf so we let it go
to seed and will hopefully have some for the fall season.

I put a shade over the broccoli and leaf lettuce and were still getting
a bowl or two a week of salad and the broccoli is still hanging on
The tomatoes are going like gang busters and we have harvested
2 summer squash and a hansom sized Zucchini. "I do love me some
oven fried squash. We have a soft ball sized water melon and 1 golf
ball sized punkin And many more summer squash and zucchini on
the way.

Hoggar your garden looks great and your pickins wonderful! I live in West Jordan so I'm not so far from you. What kind of tomatoes are you growing? Mine have just been slow but they are in a bed that is newly made this year. How long ago were you still getting lettuce? I will have to shade my lettuce and spinach next year. I had to pull it probably a month ago. Did you have many earwigs this year? I had a horrible infestation.

My cantaloupe has teeny babies on it and I don't think I have more than blossoms on my watermelon but I haven't checked lately. They are planted in a regular bed and I have a fence up around them to keep chickens and dogs out so they are not easily accessible.

Nice greenhouse and a wonderful sink!

Love the pics Hoggar, looking good! I am curious what are your last frost dates? We are all in the same region so I am trying to get an idea of when and where they vary.

Sorry for the Delayed reply Cheyannarach, I've been out of town playing
on the water what a summer vacation! 400 miles on the California Delta
in my little boat.

Here is a list of the average first and last Frost for our area
although this year is anybody's guess considering how early
Spring started.

Thanks Hoggar, I am suprised how close ours are! How is your garden doing now! My biggest pumpkin is about the size of a bowling ball now and my watermelons are a little larger than a men's softball. Turan in MT has already had a frost but here are looking good so far for the next 10 days, we shall see!

Austin's Red Pear,
Yello Pear,
Velvet Red,
Blondkopfchen,
Green Sausage,
Snow White,
Cherokee Purple,
Nyagous,
and Amana Orange.

Here are some semi resent shots of the garden & trellis.

As you can see Some of the vines are now taller than the 10' tall trellis. What a Face
The Amana Orange. and Red and Yellow Pear are the tall ones and they take a lot of watching if your doing single vine string trellising. The large toms
in the second picture are the Amanas.

Hi Cheyanne,

You posted while I was up dating.
As you can see my Garden grows well. Mid Summer checking in! 3170584802
My only Punkin is about a forth smaller than your description of yours
and our Only watermelon is about the same as yours the squash is going great guns both the summer and zucchini even though I think we have
severely over watered the squash box.
If your already worried about frost I would just get my hoops mounted so
you can just clip on the plastic. I would hang the sides on then you just
have to put on the top and there safe.

I think most of mine will be done by the time we get the first frost, I have had a severe deer problem this year Mid Summer checking in! 671790 But now I have a winter project... Fencing. Your garden looks awesome, love the super tall tomatoes, my favorite are yellow pear. What kind of watermelon are you growing, I have the sweet babies, they seem to get to this size and stop growing. We ate one last week it was good but could have used another week or two.

Were growing a variety called Moon and Stars. It says here it
can get up to 40lbs. I would love to see that!

Have you tried coffee grounds to keep the deer at bay it works on cats
its cheep and might work on Deer...
then there is predator pee Deer fear Coyotes so the scent will keep them away.

I own a coffee shop so I have many many coffee grounds all over the place outside, but I think they must lose their scent too fast because I can't keep up with them but the predator pee, what a great idea!! Lol, I have heard they don't like human pee so I encourage the boys to go outside all they want haha, but these bucks are pretty much domestic so human scent doesn't bother them at all.
