May 28 - My lettuce broccoli and cauliflower started to sprout.

June 1-4 -  Right now i am water everyday because of the heat,
 my cucumbers and tomatoes look a little dry but there doing good. so far my carrots or my onions have not sprouted.

My crookneck squash is almost 2 inches and my lettuce is about 2 1/2 inches tall.

June 15 - this is a picture of my cabbage,squash and my cucumbers,

June 13-18 i discovered some little bugs called cucumber beetles, there are black and green with stripes on there back. 
they are eating my lettuce,squash and even my cucumber plants ! I hope we find out a way to get rid of them.  
June 16-29, we put down some cucumber beetle traps,the traps have killed most of the beetles.
 on the 27 we finally put some straw down on our gardens, to eliminate the bugs and the weeds.
I am still watering everyday because of the 90 degree weather.

June 30-July 9 This whole week we watered,weeded put more straw down and also put some horse tea fertilizer down on our gardens.
 We are watering also everyday because of the warm weather
. Dean helped us make cucumber beetle traps
 they are yellow cups that attract the bugs so far they have been doing there job.  

July-10-15 i watered twice this week on Monday I researched about doing a 4-h project
 for my presentation for the garden requirements 

July 16-23 i watered every other day to keep my plants alive we just put in our drip system 
and it toke a lot of work but i still need to work on a few more thing then ill be done with it. I have also figured out that
