Nice Logo for us! Sweet! :)
I have lettuce and spinach coming out my ears! The tomatoes, peppers and squash are awaiting planting and still doing well in the greenhouse.
Husband tilled the garden again, and he proudly showed me that ALL of his asparagus roots that he planted last year came up! We will eventually have two 40’ rows of the stuff! Wa-Hoo! We had the last of our asparagus from our smaller patch last night at supper.
My car is FILLED with flats of plants that are going into work today; I started a lot of things for co-workers, so they’ll all be happy to get their ‘babies’ today...and it clears up space in my greenhouse for more goodies for ME! :)
The outbuilding painting project is coming along well. Husband and Son got two sides of the biggest pole barn painted, and it looks like a million bucks!
They finally started tilling the 700 acres around us...it LOOKS like it’ll all be Sweet Corn this season; they’d already have soybeans in, so...SCORE! Come August or so I’ll be putting up Sweet Corn that I didn’t have to grow myself. The growers are very nice about it; they have an easement through our land, so to say ‘thanks’ they tell us a few days before harvest to help ourselves. Mighty neighborly!
I’ll make a list later this weekend of the varieties of tomatoes and peppers I’m growing if anyone wants to try them in the future. Some old standbys, some favorites, some new stuff and some tried and trues.
I did find ‘Fourth of July’ tomatoes at my rinky-dink hardware store so I snapped up a 4-pack and re-potted them; a very pleasant surprise! :)
Thanks Diana. I would love to have some of those seeds!
My maters and peppers aren’t ready for transplanting yet, but today I’m going to transplant sugar baby watermelons, some kind of asian squash, cukes and yellow crookneck squash.
Our tiller is still on the fritz, so I’m doing all the “tilling” by hand...........before this summer is out I’ll have biceps sure to rival those of MO :)
we tried 4th of July tomatoes a few years ago, we were so late didn’t get them until the 30th of May, really surprised that we did have tomatoes by the 4th of July, they were really fast
