    I have, and will again soon.. those made it through last year, and all of the sage behind it. I haven't replanted sage since I built here, nor rosemary or lavender

    HS, where’d you locate the black cherrys? I can’t find one anywhere. I cut back this year because of neck surgery, but the 100 or so cherokees look quite good. I caved to Mrs SaltMuck and planted 50 asparagus crowns. We’ll see how that goes…..

    wife got black cherrys at plant sale in cola last month?
    i got a couple more in greenhouse. I'll put em in ground and let you know when to come pick em.

    DrDuck--till up that soil of yours and add some "dixie mix" type compost. I grow most of my maters in straight compost. you are lacking nutrients somehow.

    good luck on the stinky pee plants, SaltMuck. we have a few and its nice to go out and cut some for dinner.
    and i think i mentioned it but growing our own lettuce this spring was nice.

    i have lots of maters and ready for one of them to turn red.
    i didnt get my sweet corn planted like I promised myself but its not the first time i've been disappointed.
    and I sure wish I had some fresh dolphin.
    Ugh. Stupid people piss me off.

    Buttercrunch lettuce was outstanding this Spring. It's still going but headed towards seed production.

    We've got 10 total planted. Also 10 red romaine. They did well but not as well and grow a lot slower. We'll let 1 of each go to seed and collect them as always for next Spring.

    Got plenty of herbs growing and we've had salad every day with dinner for 2 months.

    Tomatoes, okra, eggplant, and peppers are taking off. Got flowers on everything but okra, no fruit yet. It won't be long.

    Next batch of arugula is about 2 inches tall. It's hard to get good leaves in the Summer with them but we always get something. I left 1 to make seeds and it's almost done. We try to grow as much from seeds as we can.

    I do more before 6 or 7 then most, haha. It's Wednesday, I finish trucks, and try to walk out before we really open. Then chill and work in the garden, get my 18 holes in, and grill. It's my day of peace..

    Wednesdays have always been kind of like a day of play here.. business owners and the sort, more so back in the day. I was pretty excited when I finally got in position to start it a few years back, I feel so grown up.

    Cherokee purples are baseball sized already. Hope 3" of rain won't split them all before they're ready.
