That's looking great. Do you have white flies? I'm having lots of trouble with them. It needs to cool down.

Mine will be fine unless it snows if I can get a good rain every couple of weeks they will be baseball sized lol I am not sure but I think the fertilizer I have been using is the key.

Looks like you planted turnips twice. I don't see any beets. Broccoli looks great!

well I got a pleasant surprise when I started plowing my garden. Kids quickly ran and snatched these up. I told them their carrots didnt grow. Its funny it didnt have much of a top on them but the root grew well. this was the first batch they got they followed me on the tractor and in total got maybe about 50 of them.

There's no such thing as "winter gardens" here. Yesterday, I got all of last year's tomato plants pulled out of the raised beds. But it will be mid-May before plants go back in.
