Yes I'm still alive. I almost didn't grow this year after the last two disasterous years that I had and then having a bad sinus infection that started at the end of March and lasted till late may. I went through the motions and still planted my garden plants indoors but I could not get inspired to grow no mater what I did. finally may 20 came along and I just took what I had and put it in the ground and hopped for the best. If thing we're to go bad I had no interest to save the season but fortunately everything went good and now the garden is doing good and now I'm getting inspired to grow again. When things go good it sure can help fix your attitude !!!

This is how my season started. On planting day When I started to rototill my garden I found this nest of baby rabbits inside my fenced in garden. All I could think about was that they were going to have a field day eating every little plant that I was going to plant.

Fortunately my starter plants did very good this year. Here I planted a row of broccoli then a row of cauliflower and then 2 rows of peppers. They were the best starter plants that I had ever started

This year I'm trying half of my competition plants as grafted plants. Im hopping that their is some advantage to grafted plants so this year I will have some good side by side comparisons

So far this has been a good growing year. no flooding rains like the last 3 years so far and everything is looking great so far.

I'm liking what I see in the grafted plants so far. They seem to grow a little faster and look a little stronger than a non grafted plant.
