Spring Time

First things first! Our Linnea Sinclair give-away winner is...

LEA

An e-mail is on its way to you for the particulars!

Ahh... spring time and flowers and looking forward to those lovely home grown veggies followed by yummy eye-candy without shirts!

In anticipation of planting time, its time to choose what to plant so that I get my little seeds sprouting in time for the planting season. So far this year we have the following:

- T4 Angel tomatoes (the disease resistant *g*)
- Basil
- Onions
- Zucchini
- Corn
- Pepper
- Lettuce
- Melon (haven't yet decided which kind)

How about you? What do you grow in the summer?

When everything has ready you need help preparing everything, and these guys can help!






And you have to have someone to deliver drinks to all the different cabanas so that our boys don't too tired:

Here's to happy days again!

Congrats Lea!

Am sorry I didn't get her sooner Aymless. My goodness those gentlemen must be...er...rather cold :)

As for planting, well it is autumn here but in spring I always have LOTS of herbs (parsley, basil, mint, thyme, oregano), dwarf green beans (because they are yummy and so easy to freeze), peppers, potatoes and tomatoes (I always use Money Makers [not sure if you have that variey in North America] because they are so tasty).
And with tomatoes, chillies and peppers you can make a tomato relish with a kick :)

Just a thought - I 'companion plant'. The older tomato varieties aren't as disease and pest resistant but they have a better taste. I plant them with marigolds, as the scent from the marigolds keeps the white butterfly away :)

Orannia: Thanks for dropping by. And forget the have the world is opposite to is northerns.

drawf green beans sound alike a good addition. And mint!11

The tomato seeds I'm using came with Kim Harrison latest book, thus the joke Angel seeds...I think the are Beafsteak tomatoes

I agree Heirloom tomatoes taste better. I'll have to see what kinda of seeds I can find.
