I have to wait till next weekend to start my garden. I wanted to start yesterday, but since our temps dropped so low, with snow and hail falling, it wouldn't be a good idea to start it yet. LOL So with 80F+ temps for this next week and weekend, the garden will be started! So far we have decided on those little yellow cherry type tomatoes, some beefsteak tomatoes, and roma's. Also some carrots, cucumber, zucchini, and pumpkins. Nice mix of veggies for this year.

We had three frost calls in the last week, but we missed all of them.
Lots of work in the yard to-day.

Starting them off early I see, supposed to be good exercise from what I've heard on the TV News.

I just have some pots outside my front door. This year I am growing strawberries and mint to have with my Pimms and lemonade.

I've also planted some catnip for kitty, but she doesn't seem to know what to do with it.

Eva, Zsa Zsa, Stinky Lou and Spawnie would be happy to give your kitty some pointers. We brought home a little fresh catnip for the four of them yesterday and an orgy ensued.

Yesterday, I thought the heat had cooked my cantalope and two peppers. They perked up today.
When it is not a 100+ anymore, I have to finish my drip set up.

Hi Chris! LOL! You beat me to it:)

(That almost looks like a bowl of fresh red pepper. Whatever those berries are, they're tiny!)

LOL, you guys. I don't bother to correct the time. I go by my posting time here.
Yes Chris red currants about within three hours from harvest, cleaning, adding sugar, drooling while it does it's bit.
I have to say, they were delicious.

Mystery zucchini - please help me identify...

This zucchini started as a tiny nursery plant and I threw away the tag.
It grows the most delicious zucchini I've every planted!
The leaves are huge. The squash are ridged. Is it some sort of heirloom?
Can anyone identify this one for me?
I want to plant the same variety next year.

Make sure you eat all your vegetables!!!

That's a mighty fine looking garden! But I'm afraid that I'm only able to identify zucchini after it's been battered and fried.

I make a decent zucchini cake, but sometimes to get my nieces or nephews to try it I have to call it "Auntie Angela's Cake Of Green Mystery".

Once they decide they like it, then I tell them what is in it. It is all in how you spin it...
