    Yeah, I've done them both ways also. I couldn't tell the difference between the two of them either beyond the color.

    Deer spaghetti with zucchini noodles. Even after using 2 for the noodles we still have 17 on the counter.

    Y’all ever had a plant that just wouldn’t give up the ghost? Planted 2 of the little hybrid snacking maters at the same time. One has been dying off for weeks. The other, right beside it, is still throwing flowers. I quit watering them a month ago. It had to have found water down there somewhere. It’s limbs started breaking off from weight at 7’.

    I had a cherry tomato plant a couple of years ago that took over the whole dang bed. Bed was an L-shape with each part about 8'; it was almost in the middle but had limbs all the way to each end. No idea why, the rest were just average looking but this thing just went crazy.

    Yes, every year, I have a cherry tomato called "coyote" that just goes absolute bananas. I cant kill it. Even the first frost doesnt really get it, takes a few usually. Its a weed disguised as a tomato and it volunteers the next year big time. Mine is probably 8 feet tall now and will reach higher but I let it top the cage then it grows its way back down the side.

    Great little tomatoes though, the kids and I love em.

    Ive had a good year for potatoes and onions. Planted 10lb of seed potatoes. Harvested over 100 lb. We took the picture during the harvest and ended up filling all the buckets. I got 70lb of onions from a 20ft row. The 4 in my hands where over 2.5lb 9 went over 2lb. Most of the rest ranged between 1-1.5lb. My best potato and onion harvest to date.

    Our zucchini and squash got destroyed by the dirt work for the shop but thats okay because I am sick of eating the suckers. We have about 25 of each in the pantry and we have been giving them away like crazy.

    I have a few raised beds. Beans, carrots, rhubarb, zucchini, maters, onions, etc. My favorite is what grows wild behind my fence. Got to beat them back with a machete non stop.
