Garden and Gallery

Even  with the recent cold snap, the lettuce spinach and  swiss chard are coming in nicely.  We'll be picking by next week if these temps keep up!blog-310

The tomatoes are growing!

See the bloom forming?

One that didn't make it.  I'm guessing a cut-worm.

We like to grow our tomatoes vertically, by weaving the vines in and out of the fencing.



Some of the blooms around the ManyMeadows.

Fresh is best!  A little olive oil, some fresh rosemary, a couple of microwave minutes.  Yum!

You have plenty of time to get some things growing.  Start with a couple of tomato plants and a couple of peppers.  Place them in a sunny bed with your flowers, or put them in large pots on the patio.  You'll be glad you did!

We'll be at the OK Memorial Marathon Sunday morning watching Anna, Cody Light, Ali and Abbi and other friends cross the finish line.  Then we have an "After Marathon Celebration Party" (otherwise known as a junk-food fest) here at our house.  Wish the runners luck!!
