Just finished putting them up. Fella asked if he could buy some from me and I told him just come on and pick all you want. He said he would go get his wife and be right out. Never showed up. I guess he doing laundry or something important. I'll turn them under tomorrow and he'll probably call and whine when I finish.

Okra and tomatoes are still going strong, but mixed some 150 lbs of chicken litter in the winter garden area and put the broccoli and spinach down just over a week ago. It's coming up, and ill pick the little bit of corn left and turn that under just in time for the lettuce to go in.
Sky, the okra plants are 7 ft tall now. I'm about ready to top them so I don't need a ladder

You far ahead of me with the greens. I turned mine under after the whiteflies took over. Just planted again. Maybe these insects will go away with it cooling down.
