This year we used organic tomato and pepper plants and have seen dramatic differences in health, growth, and fruit.

Had disappointing pea germination so far. :( Lettuces, radishes, turnips and salsify are going great guns, though! :)

during our false spring week, my tulips bolted into bloom and quit - thunk! too fast. lilacs are starting to bloom now, another short spell. nighttime temperatures are back in the 30s, so we're back to a reasonable sweater-weather spring. i hope the fruit hasn't been ruined. the bees were busy.

There is a great video "How to peel a head of garlic in less than ten seconds" that is worth watching. I hate to peel garlic! At least I did!!!

A storm blew our plastic greenhouse away and the snails eat the seedlings that where not frozen by a late night fros and a cold spell... so all is well in France.

We've been having a false spring of sorts here, a week or more of warm/hot weather that got us excited and perhaps planting some things too early. This week is cold and windy, some rain, even snow is predicted again. But lettuce doesn't seem to mind.

Would love to know how others in tropical climates are setting up their compost areas. I have seen so many different types.

Preparing to pick my first full sized tomato of the season. Black Krim. It's not fully ripe but I need to pick them before the squirrels start doing their taste tests.

Just finished building my new raised beds and got all the fencing up. Looks great and just in time for planting to begin! The fence keeps my dogs out (they like to dig up onions) and allows my chickens to enjoy munching on bugs and digging it all up in the fall.
