    Tomato plant update, spending a little time outdoors today. Almost ready to put In the ground, well at least some of them. I lost some Brandywines, better boys and Cherokee purples when I tried to harden them off last time. Got a few of those started plus some black cherry tomatoes, guy told me they were great! Bought some better boys from a mom and pop store for $1.50 each they look real healthy.

    Cherokee Purple is our hands down favorite. We love them. I even dehydrate them for our winter salads.

    Got up Friday morning early, hooked the disc hiller up to the tractor, begin laying the first of many rows In the big garden. The beauty of the IH Letter series tractor was the wide assortment of attachments used in gardening. I looked for ever to find the factory front cultivator attachments just to form perfect rows.

    These are the original arms built in 1954 and save a lot of work. The blades are new, bought them at Ag supply Lol. Once installed the push of a lever will give you this....

    And 10 minutes later you got a whole field of these...

    I managed to get 10 rows of white corn, 12 rows of purple hulls, 8 rows of yellow corn, and 8 rows of Okra planted Friday. I also got all the tomatoes except for the black cherries, they are still a little too young.

    Everything I planted a week ago is up, Garden looks a little rough right now, once everything gets a few more inch's on it, I'll run through it with the cultivators and it will start to look like a garden again Lol.
    Silver Queen corn.

    Tomatoes and peppers are doing good, had a little cool snap this weekend, but they survived it, temps predicted to be In the 80's this week. Should see a lot of improvement by the weekend.
