I love that Illinois black dirt, mine is almost pure sand, slightly grey in the top five inches and turning yellow as beach sand under that.
Eclectic gardening style, drawing from 45 years of interest and experience. Mostly plant in raised beds and containers primarily using intensive gardening techniques.

Are those marigolds or nastriums (sp?) around your plants? Do you find that they help with the cuke beetles and squash bugs?

Very nice pics, by the way, thanks for sharing.

Everything looks good Brian. You are way ahead of me in the warm variety category. Keep us updated. :)

Graham,
They're marigolds. Not sure whether they do any good, but I figure they can't hurt -- and my wife will be more accepting of my raised beds if they're a little easy on the eye.
