Tiny., In school we were told to do what you did. Cut it down as soon as you know it needs to come down., and plant another.

Sauce, sauce & more sauce. Did marinara last weekend with the last of my tomatoes. Went to my aunt's and picked 3 large laundry baskets of apples today and will be making sauce, butter & pie filling. Pears are just starting to ripen, will be doing them shortly too. They're my fave, can't wait!!!

Have been eating lots of acorn squash. It did really well this year. Had them for dinner last night baked with pork chops on top. Yum!

Sorry about your tree tiny. :( I would have cried too.

I just received Morgan's and Jung's seed catalogs in the mail yesterday.

Dreaming of spring!

The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago, the second best time is today.

Yea Taffy!

Just placed my first seed order!

Roma's
San Marzano's
Trying Gurneys Goliath spinach
Black magic zucchini
Forono beets
Scarlet nantes carrots
Tendersweet carrots
Kale mix

(About 400 seeds each for the toms, 1,000's for the rest, gonna be a BIG year here!)

Thinking about starting my onions from seed this year... Thoughts?
I'll post the next order later and ask what you think on my varieties.

Hoop house is still just a frame :(. Thank heavens though because with all the ice we've had it would already be torn to shreds! See... Sometimes procrastination DOES pay off! LOL!

Anyone grind their own cornmeal or grow feed/dent corn? I want to try some heirloom varieties for the birds and us. What about heirloom sweet corn? I have some picked out, just can't make up my mind!!!

Anyone know what to do with about 3 quarts of frozen green tomatoes cut in chunks?

Fly Gap you need to get your onion seeds in now, you are already a month late.
I have always wanted to try San Marzano's where did you get them?

I have started onions from seeds and it did work, transplanting the seedlings was a pain. but I got good varieties like the cute little chippolinas. (SP)

I saw something on the cooking channel that used green tomatoes, I even thought, what a good idea, but darned if I can remember what it was,
I think it was on Dinners, drives and dives.

Well, no. But, my relatives use to grow feed corn in abundance. I preferred it to the "sweet corn" they grew in their gardens b/c there was nothing sweet about it at all, it tasted like "corn". I don't know what help that was...so, just ignore me.

There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.

You can make chow chow with green tomatoes.

I am thinking about buying several of those cheap round plastic kiddie pools and doing my gardening in them this year. I did everything in pots last year because I don't have a good place to plow up, and I'm terrible at weeding.
