    I'm behind on tomatoes. I may have to pick up some plants too.

    I have peas up. Also a couple of melons. I'll post pictures when I get out to the car to get my camera.

    My young oak sprouts were needing a drink.

    Pepper sprouts will go into cups tomorrow if I can work it. 100% chance of thunderstorms, so I will have to take them to the shed.

    Peas are up. I haven't been in the garden the last two days, so not sure when they popped.

    I have hundreds of melon sprouts, since I planted in last year's melon patch. But at least two of them are in the hills I mounded up to plant in. {I will hoe up all the volunteers}

    Do you start them off inside with lights? I used to, but that space is filled with other shit now.

    I was pretty excited to see those peas up. I'll be able to get my push plow out in a couple weeks.

    I had a really good hand tiller once apun a time. Loaned it to a friend. I do have a 5" tiller for my Kabota, but most of the time I just use the disc.

    I love the old hand tools. I garden to get out of the house, so the longer it takes, the better I like it.

    That's cool. Most years I start way too many plants, and give them to my 5 thrift stores. I let them decide if they want to resale them or keep them for themselves. There is one old Filipino lady that works at the Catholic thrift store. I take plants and drop them off at her house. She hooks me up with all the funky Asian seeds.

    There are different plates for different sized seeds. But the plates are turned by a belt driven with the front wheel, and seeds drops when they reach the hole. For some veggies, I tape up half the scoops or it would be too close together.

    I usually grow twice as many as I need. I plant the healthiest and give the others to neighbors. They drink all their money away and barely can afford food so it helps them with their habbit.
