Hey Tater!

Well, there's not much cool, around these parts! lol
... it's beginning to cool down a little, though.

I have no clue what actually grew... Others were in charge of germination and I had no control over what was going on.

I tried a couple times to gain some control over selection and the process, it headed towards a battle each time, and I just wasn't up to it... Too much drama!
Actually, I was lucky to get ground space for my baccy!
That's why they are scattered all over the garden!

I dunno...

RC in a way it sounds lucky to have some help. Dang garden can run one person ragged. Kind of glad the baccy here got trashed early it gave me some time to really work on other things but next year i need to do a solid crop.

Oh yes, help is good!
Especially if they will follow direction!!!

Here, it was like more than one cook in the kitchen.
...then there was the 'Chinese Fire Drill mode'.
And the periodic trainwreck! lol

I was walking my 'wheel' around the various patches of the garden a few days ago to see what they talleyed up to... it's inconclusive, because I didn't want to go to the trouble of accuracy, but I've got about 2k sq ft.
Of course that includes all the walkway and aisle space, the 'set-a-spell-in-the-shade space, work area, and an embankment up to the top terrace.

Next year I will break open another 400-500 sq ft that has not yet been used, and plan the layout, hopefully far better than this year! It requires 5-6hrs most days, and demands at least 3 every day during the hottest periods, or else!

Gosh, I can not imagine how Sky pulls it off!
He must be busier than a one-armed paper hanger!
(I don't know how he stays awake at night to look at those stars! lol)

Best
rc
