Sky,

What is your winter garden? I never heard of anyone planting for a winter garden.

That garden looks as loose as a kids sand box. That corn across the road has a good color and looks to be well hydrated.

It’s 103 today, not even thinking about trying to garden. :|

Did start whacking down what’s left of grass and weeds to plant winter pasture...if it ever rains and cools off enough.

I can't grow a onion worth a crap tried for years and gave up. Rutabagas never tried I may try those I wanted some brussel sprouts but they don't have any
