    This summer has been terrible - so far I have gotten 4 cucumbers, a couple of Zucchinis, about 20 grape tomatoes, 2 eggplants, one tiny yellow squash..... My big boy and roma tomatoes have not grown at all (I see the flowers but they have yet to fruit) my green and red cabbage, lettuce, mustard, collard and turnip greens are burnt to hell, none of my herbs will grow, No black eyed peas, no green beans.... The meat has pulled away from the seed on my peaches and they are not sweet at all - about 5 tiny apples....

    The only thing that has grown with any success is bell peppers, onions and okra!

    I usually do really good - this is the worst summer in a long time.:mad:

    I get several heads of romaine before they bolted. Got a ****load of squash and a few cantilope. Onions, garlic, peppers, and Okra are trash. Tomatoes are pathetic.

    Hell, my basil wouldn't grow from seed. I thought basil could survive anything. I got some rosemary before it turned brown. I brought the thyme inside.

    To ****ing hot.

    I planted several varieties of hops...they didn't stand a chance.

    My garden is on life support. Nothing from the tomatoes except a couple of very small ones.

    About a half dozen squash/zucchini and I have some cantaloupe that may turn out, but I am not holding my breath.

    Definitely not a good year for a garden.

    I pulled the cages and mowed over what was left of my tomato, squash and pepper plants.

    Just too tough when the dirt is 92+ degrees a foot down.

    potatoes and broccoli were awesome.......i have never failed to raise these...

    peppers look the same today as they did two months ago....plants haven't grown and not a single fruit set...

    i have 2 of the most incredible zuchini plants i've ever grown....but the blooms just won't pollinate....i got a total of 1 squash..

    cucumbers did well for about a week when i started pouring on the water....got a dozen or more....now they struggle to stay alive...

    my tomatoes are sad....got a few pathetic small ones...

    the beans were overrun with spider mites...

    the only thing that's thriving is a cantaloupe...
    i planted 3 hills and only one came up and it's growing like a weed....has dozens of blooms and a few fruit about the size of softballs.

    and my 2500 acres of milo is just days from a total loss...
  7. The prickly pear fruit are doing pretty good this year, got a whole yard full of them, sage brush is doing fine and the yucca are living it up

    I've been eating fresh maters every morning and night. Cherries, grapes, celebrities, and big boys. I pick ~5-6 big ones a day and a few of the small ones. We've got ours in the truck tires and they're doing OK. I've had some jalapenos, a few yellow/red bell peppers, but no habaneros, tomatillos, and momma's cilantro went belly up weeks ago.

    Our neighbors have given us so much squash that we can't eat it all. Same with cukes and onions. I am eating cukes/tomatoes/onions in vinegar right this minute. Gooood stuff.

    You ever seen momma's cilantro? Dude, XXX.
  18. Are tomatoes even native to OK?

    I figured in the east, but out central/west?

    Planted some burpee steak sandwich hybrid with high hopes, although i was a little late planting seed. By the time they were mature and producing (beginning of June) the temps sored to 100 and stayed there. I had about 10 tomatoes set, then stopped producing. They had seen natural rain only once in that time.

    Cayenne, Hungarian wax & jalapenos are doing great, as well as the okra. I planted fall tomatoes about 2 weeks ago, maybe we'll get that bumper crop in a couple of months.

    This was my first time trying hungarian wax. I picked a few yellow and i let some blush a little to have a taste test...they are absolutely great if you let them blush before picking. Went from tasteless to perfect heat for eating right of the plant.

    I can honestly say that I don't have a garden.
