    What’s your favorite vegetable to plant?

    Okay not the best picture LOL but, you have to realize that I just interval ran 4 miles. I've been watching this tomato, and was so afraid that either the birds or the blister beetles were going to get it so I cut it early this morning.

    While i love tomatoes, but look at these peppers i just picked! Along with wax and green beans, cucumbers, and minorican tomatoes. I have been pickling and canning every day since last Sunday too. But I've given most of them away.

    We started out unusually cool at 46° this morning but jumped up around 80. High pressure gave us brilliant blue cloudless skies.

    Daffy and other pretties

    I'm so jealous. Daffs and tulips are my favorites and they just can't grow here in our heat. Thanks for sharing your beauties
