    I'm envious. Don't have nearly the room here at the house for something like that. I have 20 Roma tomatoes and Serrano peppers and will be doing Radishes. I'm about to take the plunge and plant some Peach and Plum trees as soon as I can find someone to dig the holes. Last time I used a post hole digger, I tore my shoulder the next day. Not risking that again, so I'm retired from fencing.
    If I had a dollar for every time I thought about you, I'd think about you more often.


    I dream of a tomorrow where a chicken can cross the road without his motives being questioned.

    Concentrating on plum tomatoes this year. Stock pile of jarred tomatoes getting low. Have about 60 sprouting now. Have bell pepper and genevase tomatoes as well. Will replant rosemary, parsley and thyme from pots. Once garden is in I will add cucumbers. Asparagus should be good this year.

    We're still a month away from planting here. I have started my seeds.....tomatoes, cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, bell peppers, jalapeno, cayenne, okra. Everything else will wait until it's safe to plant. I lost a lot of plants last year getting in a hurry.

    Congrats! I hope it's plentiful.

    Absolutely can't wait to plant, but we're going to have a really short season here. I grew some inside over the winter but still snowing and not looking like it's going to stop soon.

    I'll take some good pics once everything gets growning good.
    I took a few of the mushroom compost pile and when I was working the garden. I still have some clean up to do after all the compost moving and turning dirt but nothing really to see until things start showing. I'll post some picks later today though if you want.

    I just know your garden is spectacular and wouldn't mind seeing it.

    I'd be willing to wager Cammie is the most badass and capable on here I'll vote her most likely to survive

    Here's the pile of mushroom compost im still working on to amend one of my other garden spaces. I had three piles but the other two have already been spred and tilled under.
