Lovely Corporal! I was hoping you'd add yours!
Yep, early tomatoes. I've got HUGE beefsteaks and pulled two red ones already. My Romas are LOADED, no reds yet but it will only be another week.
DH is THRILLED! We're planning meals based on tomatoes...with some, um..meat on the side, later this summer. =b
I did sweet peas too!
The edible peas have been watered to death. We've had a really dry Spring and they wouldn't have survived without it. I have enough online articles saved to my computer to fill a book, and several tell how to successfully start peas inside. I'll send you the links, if you'd like. =D
LOVE your sunflower beds! That is a LOAD of work digging up those bushes, I'd have decorated the stumps and said THWI! I used to grow cabbage, squash, and strawberries in mine along with 4 O'Clocks, grandfathers whiskers, and sunflowers it was so lovely. Most of my beds by the house are in full shade now. :(
ROFL!!! My garden forum friends told me to take a vacation after I finished that
job. I started 4-o-clock's too, bc I understand that, though toxic (to cats and dogs and horses), Japanese Beetles will consume the leaves and fly off and die. I have mine in 2 hanging baskets, out of reach to my animals.
I also have 4 sweet corn beds, with squashes interplanted, and they are in between my fruit trees in my micro-orchard.
This is THE YEAR to be eating off of the land, IMO.
