I've decided to put in just a very small garden in the backyard this year, mostly so the grandson can help and see things grow and go from the garden to the table. I wish I had taken the time in the earlier spring to get started, but such is life.

Do any of you have any suggestions on garden varities that will do well being planted late, considering that it is already getting hot in Arkansas, but we're having a fairly wet season already. I'll be working on the ground during the evenings this week and will probably be planting this week-end after I get off of work.

Any suggestions or helpful hints would be appreciated.

Morgan

Planted corn, tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers and carrots this afternoon. Pole Beans and Pumpkins will go in after the corn is up.

Now hoping for a few days break from the heat and praying for the correct amount of rain and good ju ju! With the ground I've got to work with, even if the garden doesn't "make", I'm anticipating a bumper crop of rocks!

If any of you want to trade veggie seeds for rock seeds this fall....I'm your man.
