    Our garden is 100% planted now, we are just down to tucking in sunflower seeds here and there to fill in spaces. We have the Yankees and highlanders going out in the garden with the rest of the peppers and starting to take off. Also have the Escorial melons in the melon patch and starting to take off well. We have 2 Phoenix tomatoes planted in the garden and one planted in the greenhouse. Let’s see what the season brings.

    I have no IDEA! This has been an awful planting season cold but mostly TOO WET. The tomatoes have all been a bust. Time to try again. Peppers are all stunted. Maybe as it warms up and drys out a bit things will come around.

    The Highlanders and Yankee Bells are doing as well as my other hot pepppers, but unfortunately the labels all got messed up so I don't know who's who. :eek:
    I lost my early tomato starts, (maybe it's related to the pepper labels?) and I'm too tired to remember why or how, but only restarted my Latah, and your Mariana. They are doing good.

    I didn't start any melons early, or anything else besides tomatoes and peppers and a few flowers.
    Work got real crazy real fast and there's that horse thing going on around here too...:hide

    I have the peppers going pretty good, except I weed whacked one, and don't know which one it was. I forgot about the melons. I think I still have room for them...

    :rainbowflower I just put mine out, but my husband potted them up for me when I got behind, and didn't label them. All the peppers are flourishing though, so when I know what's what I'll post photos. :)

    I have a tomato on the tomato albeit still small. The pepper is my largest pepper plant with some budding flowers. Everything is slow from a cold wet spring. It is still pretty cool. I was just thinking about him and the contest as I checked out the plants yesterday. Two weeks ago I gave a daylily farm lecture at a nearby garden club. It went well. My final story was regarding the whole Martha Stewart/ Alex daylily story and what joy that brought me.
