The first tomato to set fruit in 2011 is.... Amish Paste! Put on your squinty eyes to see it LOL!
This is the Amish Paste bed, and there are dozens of blossoms on them, seems like just the other day I was setting them out. There are EIGHT of these indeterminate babies in there, just like all my other tomato beds, so if I go A.W.O.L. towards the end of July, you know what happened.
I wish peas could grow all season here, they are so pretty.
Even the leftover Hillbilly tomatoes that went straight into the unamended sandy clay are doing really well. This time last year I was already carrying out the dead...
The "Jake Gyllenhaal's" are doing well in pots so far but these are the UFO tomatoes that reached 13 feet last year, these are more of an experiment this year with saved seed, and yes Gran, they are bottomless LOL! I learned my lesson last year while carrying out the dead...
Potatoes have blossoms forming already
Marley taking a break from chores, she carries the hose for me :)
I have no idea where I am going to fit my pumpkins and random squashes this year, so until I can figure it out, I went ahead and got a start on them today. At least this time of year I don't have to mess with lights so it's not too labor intensive.
Sprocket is a lost cause unless she is on video, she's too fast and never sits still. Marley's 9 years old now and is developing a slow appreciation of sitting still for a few minutes at a time.
