Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Default Pumpkin patch

Just got this started, Iím pretty late this year from all the bad weather, plowed this field finally in late May, then rains just kept on coming week after week. Went out to the field to check on them after we had a huge washout 3Ē rainstorm last week.

They are alive and growing, now Iím gonna need to cultivate end of week to control the flush growth of weeds. Hopefully I get some flowers in next 2 weeks, so they are sellable by late September/October, my kids steal most of the profits at the stand we set up.

I'm getting rain clouds and thunderboomers around me every evening, but no rain. Everything got planted late this year. I think all I'm going to get is a mess of zucchini and some cherry tomatoes and strawberries.

My corn isn't yet knee high, but it is growing nicely.

Green beans are only about 6" high.

Not even half my onions came up, but those that did are growing nicely. They are the sweet Vidalia onions.

Green chile plants are healthy, but not producing anything yet.

Got some Cajun bell peppers on the plants that might ripen.

Broccoli suddenly decided it wanted to take off, and is looking really good. Nothing like home grown broccoli. It tastes nothing like store bought. If you hate broccoli and have never had home grown, it might change the way you think.

My lettuce will be ready to start eating in salads in a week or so - got a variety of butter, red, and romaine.

Ghost pepper plants are struggling. I planted them because that's what they use in India to keep elephants out of their gardens. So far it is working - no elephants.

The red potatoes seem to be doing well. It is the first time growing taters in a tractor tire.

How do you get your pumpkins to grow up a wall like that?

I was going to ask the same thing Kalashnikov. I have seen plants growing in water but never on a dang cliff? That flashy is good dang it.

I hardly planted any garden this year, I got 3 tomatoes and 2 jalapeŮo plants, the rain screwed me this year. I usually do a lot more but couldnít with all the rain. Had about 50 cucumbers plants last year and 50 zucchini too, sweet corn did good last year so I might plant a few rows of corn still. Iíll post a pic in a couple weeks once I fertilize after cultivating between the rows.

Finally got somewhat dry enough to cultivate, rain kept me from getting weeds in control but they are starting to vine and some have male flowers now.
