Congrats! Fantastic of DD to come help you!
Yep she's awesome! 17 25 foot long rows spaced 3' = 51 feet. I guess my garden is a little longer than 50 foot long, more like 55 foot or so.

I'll be starting my big 60 x 100 foot summer garden next week. I already called in the troops to help with it :)

Hope to get my tomato and pepper "seedlings" cut loose in the summer garden next week. Poor tomatoes will have to be planted in a trench again because they have grown to long.

Your "seedlings" and garden looks amazing! I'm not going to show mine off this year, doesn't look half as good as yours :p I do now have pea, carrot and cauliflower seedlings, which I'm ridiculously exited about. Next year I will not have a massive shed project and crazy weather hopefully and will have more time. Then I'll try and make a nice looking garden.

My tomatoes are leggy too. Normally I would have planted a month ago. It just gives 'em a better root system!

Greens and things are starting to come up. Everything but carrots but that's to be expected since carrots send down root before the tops. Even seen spinach coming up :)

Maybe next week I'll be able to cultivate, lay down some feed bags and hay in between the rows.

Well thanks to my daughter we were able to cut the tomatoes loose in the garden today. In all honesty they should have been planted 3 or 4 weeks ago. Some we're almost 2 foot long and we had to plant them all in a trench. It wasn't 30 minutes from the time we were done until a strong thunder storm rolled through. And we are forcast rain for the next 6 days.
