Lol Muppet. My kiddo might think so. I've considered doing a couple acres to sell but too much work even though there is good money in it. Jaydee, come on over! Should be ready the third week of July and will have 2 week spacings, so will have it fresh up until September. Par for the course when you live in Indiana, it's corn country! Even the amusement park close to us has a slogan song related that starts off with "There's more than corn in Indiana..."

MFHQ... be HAPPY that your child is planning on buying things that do not breathe, eat or poop!

I have an egg sign smack in the middle of my driveway (I apparently am no longer supposed to leave my house, I might miss a customer) and they have already painted one for veggies. My girls however want Bottle Calves and Pigs!!

They seem to be under the impression that if they haul said animal home that the feed will magically just appear in the feed shed like it does for the rest of the menagerie around here...

I hope you can sort it out muppetgirl because standing on my head to look at them makes me feel dizzy
We had a bit of a frost here last night but nothing seems to have been damaged so I can relax again

I started tomatoes again, this year. I bought myself a 4-rack, inside greenhouse that has a plastic cover with 2 zippers in the front. I've transplanted all of my different types of tomatoes once, and some peppers. The first day, on the east facing porch, they all perked up and are doing very well. My MIL wouldn't put her tomatoes out until Memorial Day. THIS year is so cold, that I'm thinking of putting them out in the exisiting carrot bed--carrots love tomatoes, ya know--2nd week of June. My gardening forum friends have commented that the late starts catch up with the early ones, so you don't gain much, unless you have cold frames. Cold frames are great, but you have to babysit according to the weather. On my enclosed front porch I can use my little space heat, that looks like a woodburning stove to warm it up. I did that twice in April.

Hope that you fall in love with "Trot", like I did! http://www.horseforum.com/general-of...queens-617793/
