I've been gardening for most of my life and have been a devoted fan of organic gardening the whole time. It just makes so much more sense to work in harmony with Mother Nature than to fight her. Besides which it is better for the planet and better for our bodies. Here you can see what I'm planting and harvesting, with gardening hints and resources thrown in for good measure.

The Beans are Growing & it's way too hot!
Well temps around here have been 106+ with about 7% humidity. Things are just dry as a bone. So right I'm mostly just marking time, trying to keep what I have watered and alive and keep myself as cool as possible.
The beans I planted the other day are doing well and growing strong. Beans like it pretty hot and these Hopi Purple Pods are no exceptions.

And so far the grasshoppers that are eating up the morning glory seedlings don't seem to have found the beans yet.
