Rows are a little crooked, but the kids helped plant and that's ok... and I have some weeds popping up.

Back when I was young and dad was trying to teach me how to plant corn he would gripe about my crooked rows. I tried telling him that you get more seed in a crooked row. He did not think that was funny and chewed me out good. Dad was known for his ability to plant arrow straight rows. They looked like you had autosteer and a gps. The wife and I decided that we will not plant a garden this year because we are doing a add on to the house and will not have the time for it. I will miss my fresh veggies!!!!

This is my small garden behind the house. Took this picture about a week or two ago. Its been dry in my neck of the woods so I am hoping for some rain.

From Left to right:

3 Rows of Silver Queen (99 stalks in all)

1/2 Row of Straight Zuchinni
1/2 Row of Crookneck Squash

2 Rows of Spineless Okra

Last Row on right:

13 Tomato Plants (6 Big Boy, 6 Better Boy, 1 Hybrid Cherry)

Mamoth Jalapeno Pepper, Sweet Banana Pepper, Tabasco Pepper, and Sweet Bell

Off to the side I have a few cucumber as well.

Question: How often do you guys fertilize once your plants start fruiting out? I've heard that once you have some vegetables after the blooms, you can fertilize a small amount about once every ten days, but I've had a garden for about 15 years and never done it more than 2 or 3 times.

Garden looks good Chad.
I couldn't put in a garden this year because of back surgery. But there is next year.
As far as fertilize. I fertilize when I plant, then when the plants get a good start I will side dress 2 or 3 times. For my tomatoes I use miracle grow at about 2 week intervals all the way through the season. Also on my pepper plants. I have always had good luck this way. But when its really dry don't forget to water.

Thanks Bamafan. I'll look into the MiracleGro.

I've used it on plants around the house, but never with my garden. I've got some at home so I may give it a shot this evening. Hopefully I can post some pics of good progress here soon.

Hope the back is healing up well!

This corn was near flat on the ground 2 days ago thanks to heavy rain and strong winds.

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
