Long time no Post

Wow, I didn't realize it was so long since I posted! Hubby got back the beginning of June so I was getting the house sort of cleaned or decluttered a bit. I also haven't knit one single stitch since he got home, busy, busy!
Hubby got the back tomato bed all re-soiled and planted, we have about 6 heirloom tomato varieties in there, plus basil and other non heirloom tomatoes. Oh, today we planted chili peppers, Jalapenos, serranos, Hungarian hot wax and some cubanelles; I don't think those are hot, but they are for frying. We already got the Thai chilies and other hot ones planted and the habenero chilies that overwintered have bright neon orange fruit ready to make salsa. I need to get the squashes and cucumbers in the ground. I can't wait for Greek salads! Cucumbers are soooo easy to grow, as are tomatoes and if you buy by the pound look at the money you save by going out back and picking your own when they are ripe, knowing you don't get poisons or weird chemical treatments done to them. The Tuscan black kale is almost done making their seeds, I will save lots of them for future years, I can't imagine not growing that. I am still eating the leaves and it is still wonderful tasting. Bliss.

Bet you are really glad you planted those tomatoes what with the tomato recall. It is a treat to have a good tomoto these days.

We are sadly not doing a garden this year and now I have tomato envy!
