    I've tried it while outside in the yard, too. It's not bad. Usually will munch on a bit of wood sorrel when weeding, too. Lemony and refreshing.

    Picked the first cucumber today. It lasted less than 20 minutes until my youngest found out. Much needed rain. #2 started new sunflower patches from seed, now over 4'. So far so good.

    I think the neighbor behind us has something to do with our issue. He has his lawn treated for weeds professionally. I think there is either overspray or soil leaching going on. The treated area is literally 2í from our garden.

    lettuce grew well. Thatís it.
    Our root veggies seem ok so far (Beets, etc)
    tomatoes peas and green beans are stunted but still producing fruit. they are literally half as high as they should be
    pea vines are only a foot long and producing 1/2 size fruits.
    cucumber vines arenít thriving and are already producing flowers at 18Ē long. Normally they grow to 10í long !

    going to have the soil tested though.

    Iím not a gardener, but a friend gave me 2 cherry tomato plants as seedlings. One is now about 4í tall, and the other is a little shorter but bushier. Lots of clusters of green tomatoes on both. I have them in plastic pots and it seems to be working fine. I was able to take them into the garage earlier in the year when there was a frost threat. I may look into a garden plot next year. Itís been fun to go out every morning to water them and prune them.

    We have had fresh cherry and full size maters the last few days with more coming to color. The plants were green house starts and 3' tall when we planted them. Covered up when the frost hit. Doing well.
    We got the cucumbers in the ground a bit late but they are coming on strong as are the onions.

    Storing seed potatoes until next year, thinking on making up a hardware cloth box for the crawl space.
    Eh, maybe.
    Any of you fellas have something you've been using with success?

    Always treat seed potatoes as a roll of the dice.

    I've done OK with them in cardboard boxes and or cardboard egg cartons.

    Sounds like you are on to critter prevention.

    Yeah, no point in feeding critters. But I'm thinking about temperature and moisture too. Inside the house is too warm. In the garage it still gets too cold at times though perhaps I could improve that with a tater storage facility put against the common wall with the house. The crawl space might be the Goldilocks zone.

    Stil more peas coming in than I can deal with. Started eating zukes now and one banana pepper. I have a few little green beans forming, so a week or two the bush beans will be producing and I there should be some little new potatoes ready to go. I think the cabbage is close now also.

    I don't on raised beds,
    BUT,
    I also spent time getting a soil mix that doesn't clump/cake nearly as bad as the usual clay around here...
    I usually don't till any deeper than what I'm going to plant needs to start out.

    This year is a mess so far,

    Frost/freeze late in the year combined with wet start,
    Then out of town working on COVID emergency crap, the weeds took over,
    Then the bugs hit with a vengeance...
    Now stuff is tall enough, storms/wind are a pain.

    Honestly, if I wasn't out of town so much it wouldn't have been near as bad...
