21incher,nice plants and raised beds you have. My beans are not even blossomed yet. We are not selling,so I took my time putting the garden in this year. Got most of it done by mid June. Most years,mid May I am done. I see you have your peppers stacked. I put down black plastic for all my peppers.I use tomato cages for mine.They really like the heat. My Father use to grow melons. He would feed 'em,as he use to say. I am using cattle panels for my tomatoes this year. I have no idea how that will work.

They are just a few early beans. The canning ones are just starting.  I put the peppers in the raised beds filled with compost and stuff as many pepper plants as I can fit so they don't need weeding. Everything is coming in about 3 weeks late  so I hope we have a late frost. Last time I grew melons some critter took a bite from each one when it was ripe and ready to pick.  :)

21, very nice layout and gardening practice, that had to come by lots of work,, our jap beetles are on the decline now finally, made the mistake of using traps for them last year, they only brought in more.  Our okra is now coming on, gerks are slowing just a bit, and I did come up with a good recipe for the gerks, both kosher and regular dill.  waiting for the few corn to fill out and tomatoes to ripen. A bonus on the maters was a volunteer cherry tomato, its making a ton of fruit.  We too use the Baker Creek Heirloom seeds, and had a great time at their spring festival this year, lots to see and some great deals on various things.   
That must  have been a fun festival.  Glad to hear you were able to spend some time in a garden this year. :)

Can I grow lettuce under shadecloth in hot weather?
I find romaine grows ok in hot weather. A shadecloth should help.  :)

21.....I really enjoyed that. Good video.
I just wanted to share the seeds that grow best in my garden. :)

Been harvesting head lettuce (Great Lakes), pole beans almost ready(3-4") to pick for the 1st time (Blue Lake and Kentucky Wonder cross), Blueberries finished, tomatoes (pole type)4-5' tall, filling in nicely with "fruit". Amish paste tomato - a really good variety!  Tomatillo's have their lanterns now. Peppers are slow, just now warming up at night sufficiently. Onions ready, garlic drying, more lettuce and carrots coming up. Fall peas in the ground. And our water bill...it's growing too!  Live in town - no well. Oh well.

SPDM, are the row covers for the cool nights or bugs? Do you take them off for pollination?

We use the row covers to take the edge off the cold nights and reduce the stress on the plants from the wind. They are removed after two weeks enabling pollination.
