I'm the guy you dont want near a garden, All I can grow is OLD!

Oh I grow my fair share of weeds too. If I worried about getting rid of all the weeds id never get anything else done.

Yep, I grow a garden every year. Mainly just green beans, tomatoes, lettuce, corn, squash, and sunflowers.

*I don't have much luck with sweet corn, but I learned a tip this past year from an old timer and I can't wait to try it out. (BTW, I love sweet corn!!!) He said when the corn starts tasseling, at first sight of any tassel, sprinkle a healthy dose of Cheyan pepper on the tassel of each ear of corn. This is because here in Missouri, the coons and deer and bird, will eat the heck out of the corn. This old timer said, they get one wiff of that pepper and away they go... they NEVER touch the corn.
...and on that day when my strength is failing, the end draws near and my times has come, still my soul will sing Your praise unending, ten thousand years and then forevermore!

I do. I grow a lot of tomatos, pole beans, squash and lettuce. It will be a long time before I can plant. I have to wait until May 15th or they will freeze. The temps in the mountains outside of ABQ can get below freezing until mid may.
