I'm thinking of taking the strongest raspberry cuttings that root and bumping them into 5 gallon bags so I can move them into the garden next Spring without them taking over the garden.

I'll have to bone up on raspberries in containers.

I once grew some in two gallon pots. They needed lots of watering, produced well and multiplied rapidly. Here, they like being pot grown or in a raised bed that keeps their roots from sitting in the wet in our soggy winters.

About the time I think it is cool enough for peas it heats back up again.
One more month.

That's how it is for me and garlic here, Worth.

What kind of broccoli is that? Looks great.

You must have a perfect climate for fall growing. Your garden is beautiful. Have you had a lot of rain? I am always envious of those neat straw beds that people with large gardens post. A bale is $10 at a grass supply or feed store here.

The hot weather is running havoc here as well. I didn't attempt peas this year. My lettuce is the size of my pinky fingernail (planted 6 weeks ago). I bought transplants last week at the only nursery in town that still has any, kept them in shade or indoors till the heat broke (yesterday) and today a big seed stalk is growing out of the romaines.

This thread will be my inspiration for next year.

I feel a little silly asking this question because my memory is foggy. How many pounds of garlic are in each bundle in post 175 ? They are so nice and healthy and big. It's been several years since I ordered garlic, and I can't remember where I bought it from or how much I ordered back then. Those bags are much larger than what I had bought.

@clkeiper, that's Burpee's Bonanza. It makes some really nice sized heads where I garden. I like Sun King for Spring and Bonanza for Fall.

Thanks, greenthumbomaha. Sometimes the weather cooperates around here. We had an exceptionally rainy Summer and it really made watering a breeze.

My broccoli struggled a bit right after transplant but then it finally cooled down a bit and it was happy with it.

Those garlic bags are each 2 pounds. I'm sure they'll weigh a tad bit lighter by the time I plant it out in November, though.

Nice looking produce. really nice.

Worth.. get them in. it will cool down eventually. I am shocked I actually do have a fall crop of snow peas. we picked again for the second time tonight. it was a bit cooler at the beginning of August and then it went to blazing hot for a long time and no rain to speak of. it was in the 80- 90's for the past several weeks... they are self seeding from the Spring crop that got too hot and they went nasty over a period of about 2 days and we quit picking them. they matured dropped their seeds and I tilled it all up and planted those {nasty} 1/2 runner beans that everyone asks for up here. I have 1/2 runners and snow peas on the same fence.but if I can sell them I will grow them. the beans go for 50.00 a bushel.
