Planted carrots, green and yellow beans, radishes, cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, spinach today.

First "harvest" of the year, radishes. Not hot at all.

Cherry bell variety. Ones down, one to go I eat them fresh as an appetizer, or in a salad. The "sparklers" are better, sweet and creamy but firm texture.

Got my garden spot tilled yesterday, will plant next weekend.

Maters, peppers, cabbage, yellow crook-neck squash, maybe a broccoli or cauliflower or three.

Default wierd...........

I transplanted a tomato plant that grew out of my compost pile. the tomato's look like roma's, the thing is that roma's are determinate. This plant is 5 feet tall and still growing. No suckers or off shoots, if the last bunch of flowers germinate, I'll have 10 tomato's on one stem.......

Bar the bugs and the birds, I'll be eating these fresh from the plant for breakfast...........I'll save the first one that ripens for seed next year......I love tomato plants that don't produce suckers. e.g. creole tomato plants..........By the by, I still haven't cut that pumpkin to get your seeds to plant, as of now its still edible, I picked this thing last fall, talk about shelf life....................You will get your seeds..............wills...........

Actually I have had some personal things come up and my garden is pretty much out of my hands now- my wife has taken it over and doesn't want me "meddling" with "her" garden.

"My" garden has taken a back seat this season. I will still take the seeds, it is not like pumpkin seed goes bad in one year if I don't get them planted this season (its getting late for planting pumpkins around here now anyhow- thouh they will still do well if planted late.) Hopefully I will be growing my garden elsewhere next year.

I would be thrilled if I had a man that wanted to work the garden for me. Anytime a man wants to do some work for me, it's all his. I'm tired of doing it all myself. Wassa matter with that woman????
