Quoted for the absolute truth! I'd rather do without tomatoes than inflict store-bought ones on myself.

I was late getting my garden in, but beginning to get cherry tomatoes to eat and eggplant. Beans, okra, melons, cukes and zucchini are all growing very well.

Only two things money can't buy, true love and homegrown tomatoes.

With the late snows and flooding we're behind this year,everything's looking good just a month or more behind schedule.

Our first planting of sweet corn was flooded we had to replant,all the corn's looking good now standing 3 feet and just starting to tassel.

Tomatoes are blooming,we've had a time with them this year? A rabbit or deer chomped one tomato plant nearly to the ground,the plant's still growing dwarfed and behind compared to the others. Our cherry tomato plant was looking great,went out one morning and it was lying over in the cage? Some type of insect burrowed in the stalk and hollowed it out?

So no tomatoes on this farm yet?? LOL

Our cantaloupe hills are really looking great and full of blooms,hoping the next 30 days will be enjoying some tasty homegrown cantaloupes

We just planted our last sweet corn crop fro the season,which should be ready around Labor Day? Looking forward to some late season grilled sweetcorn with some BBQ!

I saw this on another site and did get a laugh out of it,thanks for posting.

We live in the country and have been thinking about raising a few laying hens for our own farm fresh eggs,the only reason we haven't is our next door neighbors sell fresh eggs 2.00/doz.?

I do have a old van sitting around though! LOL
