    The Garden

    Is coming along nicely:
    My tomatoes and a pepper plant


    Mustard Greens and beans:


    In addition to that, I've got brocoli, asparagus, onions, potatoes, mesclun, cucumbers, watermelon,okra, and zuchini. I didn't get anymore pics caused it started raining right after taking these pics. I did manage to get a big bag of mustard greens picked this morning. I've cooked them and put them up in the freezer.

    Gardening is good. Let's see yours.

    this is the first year i have grown anything in the garden. i tried my first pickings of spinach and it was absolutely delicious. better than anything shop bought. everything else is growing very slowly. tomatoes are less than half the size of yours.

    i forgot about the potatoes. they are amzingly fast growing.

    I tried gardening last year, and learned that I would have to commit more time and learning to it, which is difficult to do these days for us. So we are going to be farm market hanger-outers this year. I am going to stick to what I do well, and let the farmers do what they do well.

    What? No pics of the "special" garden in the basement, with all the U/V lights?

    You're at least three weeks ahead of us here MV. Looks like you could use some mulch there though. I'll post some pics when I have more to show then the couple plants we have out there now (and hoping this stupidly cold spell won't kill off). We do have thistles and catnip like you wouldn't believe though.

    mulch would be good. I bag the lawn on occasion and use the clippings to mulch with. Good source of nitrogen for the tomatoes and peppers. You can see some of the grass clippings I have already gathered around the base of the tomatoe plants.

    Finally finished getting my garden planted this weekend. 6 different types of tomatoes, 3 different types of peppers, two eggplants, 4 different kind of grapes, oregano, thyme, greenbean, cilantro.
    Strike like an eagle and sacrifice the dove.

    You'll see grapes in 2010 - if you're lucky.

    I'm rubber, you're glue. What you say bounces off me and sticks to you (aided in large measure by that gooey mess left behind by the okra).

    see....us southerners know that frying okra results in no gooey mess. Also, if you have to boil it, stew it with tomatoes....the acidity of the tomatoes gets rid of the gooey mess. Then of course, there's the pinnacle of uses for the stuff....Cajun cuisine.

    I know that, it's a long term investment, still shorter than planting an olive tree.

    It's not gooey. It's slimy. Get it right
