I'm glad you were in the mood to post pictures, Rodger. I enjoyed them. Especially that last one.

I didn't have any BBQ. Dang! But I did have a few little neck clams and a nice salad from my garden veggies.

Ruthieg tx The peas are under covers to insure no cross pollination. I have raely seen any effects of cross pollination in peas even when planted side by side But I always keep around 50ft isolation distance between varieties. This year I invested in a large quantity of insect netting, that I have been using and experimenting with, to allow me to grow out more beans and peas and melons without compromizing the seed. I had a backlog of older varieties that hve been given to me and I felt it was my responsibility to grow them out in isolation to keep the variety going. So I bought the netting and have 6 common beans, 6 Limas, 9 field peas, and 6 watermelons all growing undercover to exclude pollinators and to obtain data on caging. Check out my other post on Isolation cages.Another benifit of the netting on the peas is deer control I can successfully keep the deer out of the garden on the other crops and peas until the peas ripen, once they begin to turn its a battle to keep them out.

Now that's what I call gardening! ;-) Simply beautiful. Nice pics, Rodger.

And to think, most of my garden is only a foot high or so right now... I continue to marvel at the difference a few lines of latitude can make. Hopefully I'll post a few pics of my own, come August & September.
