*NEWS FLASH**
My first jalapeno has sprouted! I'm so proud!

I planted some grape size tomatoes along with peppers in the garden....Also planted two persimmon tree's down by the wood line,so the deer have something to eat this fall...The tree's are only three feet tall,so the fruit will be years away...I read that persimmon tree's are one of the hardest woods that grow even harder then oak and walnut....

Those grape tomatoes are very good eating. I grew them the last few years and I eat them like candies.

We plant about twenty thousand acres of rice and spray and and fertilize tomatoes, corn and sunflower and other assorted crops I wish I had time to garden but not this time of year.

My wife has been pulling weeds like mad for our garden area. I've been out there with a spading fork and we'll have the soil ready for amendments tomorrow.

I bought some sacks of amendments that have chicken manure and a bunch of other good stuff already mixed in. I'll mix that in and we'll be ready to plant. I wish we were able to get an earlier start, but we got what we got.

I went with heirloom tomatoes, but had to go with hybrids for the eggplant, squash, cucumber, corn and carrots. Next season I'll have more non hybrids. I have a bunch of non hybrid seeds vacuum sealed and put away for just in case.

For our fall planting/cold crops, I'll go with non hybrids.

I hope you're a young feller. If you planted the wild type it'll take years to produce and you'll need a male and female to produce fruit. If not go with the Japanese type. And by the by you'll need a truck load of traps for the O Possums that will reek havac on your persimmons. Thats the only known pest that can withstand a green persimmons bitterness.......
