    such a good feeling to harvest my dinner from my own yard. Also thoroughly enjoying the beautiful produce from my CSA every week.

    Baby tomatoes are slowly but surely doing well. Decided to try pumpkins this year. Started them indoors and showoffs that they are, they have already left the tomatoes in the dust. I planted Mardi Grah beans in the garden. If successful they will give me three colors of string beans.😁

      I'm impressed that you're growing baby tomatoes. I've never had any luck doing it. Pumpkins should be fun. Mardi Gras beans, too. Are you all planted??  I bought scarlet pole beans that grow 10' and two huge obelisks to grow them on (and make a privacy wall). Also, I planted some peanuts. It's fun experimenting!!

    Baby plants doing well with help of heat pad and light bulb. I also tent plastic over the top. Should be ready to transplant by end of may. Yesterday I planted some more kale seeds and 2 kinds of beans. Come on summer sun, warm us up.

    I just signed up for a CSA with Sunscape, a local farm with eco friendly practices. I am excited to pick up my first veggies mid June. Priced at $18 a week for very fresh local veggies and fruits I think its a great deal.

    • Andrea Porter 5/11/2020 5:18 PM
      That's who we signed up with, and we're very excited, too. I always love their selection and quality at their farm stands.

    Feelling accomplished...planted carrots, peas, lettuce, radishes and cleaned out some more garden beds. Used recycled twine and sticks to makes a trellis-like structure for peas to climb.

    Been working in yard all morning. Got a small patch of my large veggie garden ready to plant peas, radishes and lettuce a bit late but weather has not cooperated.

    I picked up aluminum cans on my walk today. Was surprised to find 12 cans on a 30 minute walk. Why? Ironically, one was a Corona. (I had a glove on)
