I did a container garden a few years ago that worked out better than I thought it would. I learned that white 5 gallon buckets worked best. I used a few dark blue ones and the plants in them didn't do well, likely overheated. Another good thing was being able to move them in and around the sun/shade throughout the day.

All of the pinto beans,green beans and snow peas finally came up.

The sweet corn is 3 in.high and the okra is happy.

The 3 types of watermelons are coming up as well as the cantaloupes.

The garden has survived 3 sand storms from hell.

The ditch the asparagus is in has been filled up with blow sand and still they are doing good.

The squash has made the trip from under the sand and the tomatoes have finally pulled out of their dying funk they were in,don't know what their problem is/was.

I sure hope i get some good eats out or this.

A few tomatoes on Monday. Two 25 ft rows of pole beans planted on Tuesday. Six rows of sweet corn (three varieties) planted yesterday. Had deer hoof prints through the garden this afternoon when I went out to water. mad Will put out cukes and melons over the weekend... Two more rows of beans next weekend. More tomatoes when I make time...

We gave up realizing we are too soon to leave the Texas Hill Country and too soon to leave the far north Idaho Panhandle. Our dear neighbors keep us fed in Idaho thankfully.

Dozens of tomatoes at various stages of development on the vine. Only lost three to fruit worms so far. Taking measures.

Horned worms were easily dealt with, and their season is past now.

Tomatoes are on the vines and should be ready to eat next week. We've been eating fresh onions for 3 weeks.

Not too wet, still too cold most mornings.

Got a bed ready for taters, which I picked up seed for the other day. Weeded and put down some compost in the berry bed. Lots more to do today.

pffftt to you miscreants with tomatoes and sweet corn up and going already. Probably be mid June again for our last frost. Probably snow on Memorial Day.
