About me

I love to dig in the dirt! My grandmother & g-father had a 160 ac. farm. Grandma had a 1/2 acre vegetable garden. They raised dairy cows, sheep, hogs, chickens and every kind of vegetable you can imagine. Everything was slaughtered there and cooked that day! The daily main meal was at 2:00 and there were usually four or five vegetables. I used to help grandma inthe garden. My mother is a gardener, too - flowers.

Current project

I have a 20' X 10' veggie plot. Kentucky wonder beans, Blushing Beauty bell peppers, as well as Bell-green,orange,yellow. Tomatoes - Celebrity,Better Boy. Squash - yellow crookneck.

Hi! How are your tomatoes doing this year? Mine have been late - yellow pears are finally setting and slowly beginning to ripen. Your childhood experience on your grandparents' farm sounds like it prepared you well to have your own garden! Were they in TX too? (I am in Austin.) Put up a post and let us know how your garden grows!

HI there! I have two different areas I am gardening in my rental yard. One is 12 x 18 the other is about 12 x 15 with bits and pieces scattered around the yard. <br/> <br/>

Hi! I am in Greenville with crooked neck squash, tomatoes, green beans and 4 types of bell peppers. The tomatoes are Better Boy & Celebrity. The Green Beans are Kentucky Wonder. The Bells are 3 types I found at Lowe's and several Blushing Beauties. It is too hot today to work in the garden. I haven't checked but it is around 100.
