heavy rain last night filled it 90%. I'll probably get another one for the larger garden even though it won't be roof-fed. 

It doesn't take much rain to fill the barrel especially considering your shed roof is not that big.

How to you plan to fill the next one if it won't be roof fed?

Raspberries are coming in nicely. Blueberries are pretty much done for the year. 

Picked a bunch of beets that were ready to be pulled. Just need to clean them.

Getting a good beer harvest this year. ~10lbs today and that’s about 1/3 of what’s in the garden. They were great for dinner.

You grow some pristine produce. I'm thinking you buy it at some organic farmers market and use it all as props to impress us. My 2 pot plants survived transplanting at the end of April despite near freezing temps into May. One is approaching 8' and the other one is about 6'. Since I wasn't around to maintain, it'll be below average yield. Parsely and rosemary survived. Basil died.

Tomatoes should be wrapping up soon, peppers still going strong, squash starting to turn, more cantaloupes, and pulled the rest of the beets. Been the best growing season we’ve had yet.

I guess this is a good time to think about starting a garden......

Not a bad idea if food shortages become reality. Just be prepared to defend your bounty from veggie pirates.

My version of gardening from this past weekend.  I have a whole bunch of stones as an accent in one of my beds under my Japanese maple.  Over the years, mulch had washed down and hidden most of the stones.  Digging through mulch to put all the stones in a wheel barrow, clean out the mulch, and put them back, was quite the chore.  You can see before/after.

You look way to excited for hemp. You get more stones smoking a shag carpet.

I figured it would also help to relieve the number of people at the grocery stores and leave produce for people that need it...(if things go on that long).....Just signed up for grocery delivery service....

I usually pay someone to do all the spring clean up, edging, mulching, etc.  But, I've got nothing but time now.

Yup. Plenty of time on my hands here too. Chester, montgo, delco, and some others are on 2 week stay at home. At this point i need to look into having mulch delivered to give me another project. Im running out of things to paint with what paint i have on hand.
