    I have one but only grow tomatoes, cukes and hot peppers. It is quite small and produce is cheap this time of year.

    There's something about N.W. Ohio soil that grows those vegetables well.  Perhaps that is why there is a Campbell's Soup factory in Napoleon, a tomato juice factory in Northwood, and a ketchup factory in Fremont.

    I used to do the radios for the Campbell's plant. I couldn't believe how huge those vats are.

    Ha!  I have no garden, except some flowers the squirrels demolish every year.  You at least have three of my favorite food items.  Tomatoes are expensive at the store.  If you grow your own, you have saved yourself at least 5 bucks at the grocery store.  Good for you Element. :) :)

    Momma used to make me rhubarb pie every summer until I learned that part of the plant is poisonous. YIKES!

    I don't think I knew that. Maybe I did but hadn't thought of it recently.

    For sub-tropics with red podsolic soil.
    Shrubs with long flowering seasons that overlap so there are blooms all year round.
    Minimum upkeep. No weed potential.
    Flower colours blue through to purple, and cream to white, with good fragrances.
    All evergreens, no variegated foliage, but plenty of variety in textures.
    Plus fruit trees, vegies, herbs and medicinals.

    Oh, I have a garden... several in fact (flour, vegetable and rock).  This year I  planted corn, several varieties of tomatoes, bell peppers, cucumbers and cantaloupe in my vegetable garden.  Unfortunately, an uninvited "guest" helped himself to a lot of the produce.

    A human guest? I wonder sometimes if humans steal produce from others' gardens.

    No, it's a slick looking black rat.

    You could make a Water bucket rat trap. There safe to use and you can find out how to build them on Google. Cheers!

    Well I was trying to be helpful - what were you trying to be by being critical?

      No one has said that you were not being helpful. You used the wrong word, that's all. It's neither the end of the world nor anything to let your day get ruined.

    I'll give it a try.  However, this rat can see through any kind of trap.  He actually dismantles my traps and keeps parts of them for himself (is he building a "human trap"?).

    This is one smart rat.  He robs traps without springing it.  He dismantles traps and then take the parts he can "use" (I hate to think what he's building out there).  He spites me, and has even come up to me and made an obscene gesture after I tried a new bait in the traps.  This is one "bad" rat (I swear his fur has pomade on it - all slicked back, just like James Dean).

    Yeah, my father used to sit in the huge garden out back and chase melon thieves away.
