quite a home garden there! country setting perfect, imo! lots of corn... what do you do with all that produce? can it? sell it? give it away? or? sometimes i am overwhelmed a bit when several things come in all at once. we have a pantry full of tomatoes and cucumbers... and my 4 beam plot and kentucky poles are all flowering now...

The photos show ten rows of Obsession corn that are 50 ft. long. We cut off of the cob and froze 600 ears and gave the rest to friends. What we do when we have more than we can use is to give away the excess and the next year grow less. Great looking produce photos you've been posting!

I'm going to be picking our Rattlesnake pole beans for the first time today(We've been away f. Also the first time growing Rattlesnake pole beans.

Rattlesnake row 40 ft. long and 10 ft. tall. Jimmy Nardello peppers too.

Things I'm doing that are not in 'The Joy of Gardening'.

I'm using a Meadow Creature broad fork to dig 14 inches deep in the row.

Drip irrigation.

My rows are marked with steel posts and are always in the same place.

Haven’t posted in a while but the garden is doing good. My first time growing a hibiscus is turning out ok. And the peppers are doing good. Got some cross pollination though with the hot and sweet so it will be interesting to see.

Looking good!

I believe that cross pollination will only effect the seeds and will not result in any taste or hotness differences.

If you plant those seeds next year then you will see the effects of the crossings.

Okra is in the same family as hibiscus and has the same flower.
