    Is that a troybilt I see in post # 124? Bought mine in 1983. Still original spark plug. Starts on first pull, purrs like a kitten.... in spite of the fact that I may only start it up and use it every 2 - 3 years!

    I am glad your garden survived the floods, now it can get to producing.

    Tomatoes and peppers. Tomatoes are approaching 5' tall, hilling up the rows helped with all the rain we had, I'm surprised they survived at all. I even have tomatoes growing on the vines.

    Bell peppers just now starting to grab hold and flower after dropping their lower leaves because of too much rain.

    jalapeƱos seems to be doing well amazingly, and will need their first picking in a week or so.

    Doesn't look like we'll have any walnuts this year though. My poor mature walnut tree looks like its had way to much water.

    Tomatoes are working on 6' tall. They've really took off now that rainfall is more "normal". Still a little to wet for my peppers though. Maybe they will grab hold and produce this month if we don't get a bunch more rain.

    Rows are 4' apart for reference. Can't really walk in between the rows now
