    He should try using straw instead of mulch. It decomposes nicely in the fall, controls the weeds (the straw does “Sprout” so you just turn it over with your hand) and keeps the ground moist. I cannot figure out why he uses all that good ground to grow corn.

    “What good is zucchini anyway?”

    Heh. His education has been neglected!

    He needs to take cooking lessons from someone who knows! It’s so versatile and wonderful in how it’s flavors combine with so many others! But you have to taste all the ways and decide for yourself. When you do, you’ll use it in literally dozens of ways.

    It may look like he’s growing corn, but what Scott is really growing are his grandchildren.

    Just growing potatoes, like a good Mick, this year after giving up on a garden for a few tears. Was going to grow some tomatoes and zucchini like in the past. Sliced and grilled zucchini on the grill is like candy and home made tomato sauce is wonderful but refused to wear mask to buy seeds/plants.

    L0l, looks like work to me. As a 70 year old retiree with IPF I labor to breathe just looking at it.

    Great garden! Enjoyed the tour.
    Your mulching is excellent just keep it up. Yes it just gets better with time.
    Only downside is too much rotting organic matter over time can change the PH lower, to more acidic.
    So just get a Ph tester, and maybe add some lime to raise the Ph if it starts to get too low.
    You’re doing great kid! 🙂

    (I miss Lewis Grizzard. I’ve always wondered what happened to his life-size painting of Herschel Walker in his University of Georgia football uniform. Maybe Grizzard’s widow gave it to Walker.)

    A few years ago we realized you can pickle zukes – in chip form – and they are really amazing. Changed my whole view of them. Really tasty with some cheese and bread and a Martini.
