The watermelons and cantaloupes are growing like crazy but aren’t quite ripe yet. I picked one that weighed 23 lbs., but it wasn’t ready. They’ll probably all ripen at the same time. Friends & the Post will have their share. The corn will be ready in a couple of days. My son brings in okra […]

The watermelons and cantaloupes are growing like crazy. I hope to have them ready for a Sunday Post breakfast. And, I had my first yellow pear tomatoes. They sure do beat store bought as far as flavor goes. The okra is coming along as is the corn. They’re not ready to harvest yet, but it […]

This is a really bad year for squirrels and gophers. So many folks are complaining about losing parts of their gardens to these critters. Our cantaloupe and watermelon plants are doing pretty well, but my son came in one evening with partially eaten cantaloupes and watermelons. He thought he had eliminated gophers from the surrounding […]

They can use items such as personal wipes, micro popcorn, top ramen, beef jerky, wrapped hard candy, beer nuts, etc. We are also accepting cash […]

Some of our artichokes are big enough to eat, but the aphids are trying to get their share, and the strawberries are threatening to take over the garden. My son picks a quart or more every day. He has the patch so well fenced the critters can’t get in, but the berries that have spread […]

It’s time to start planting if you haven’t already. The rule is not to plant until after Mother’s Day, but my son jumped the gun a little bit. He’s planted corn and okra seeds. I bought zucchini, watermelon, cantaloupe, and tomato plants. In the not-too-distant future, I’m hoping I’ll be serving the bounty of these […]

Is it Spring yet? It looks like it, but I’m not holding my breath. My apricot, peach, and apple trees all have small fruit on them and the iris is finally putting out blooms. The asparagus we planted a couple of months ago are finally sprouting. I know we won’t get anything for a couple […]

Finally, Spring has sprung. The fruit trees are in bloom and the spring flowers are putting forth their best effort to boost our spirits after the rains. I think this is the loveliest time of the year. We’re starting up our auctions again. Our first one will be on Thurs., April 19. Bring your items […]

At this time we’re having beautiful weather, but it’s supposed to get cold again, and Easter hasn’t arrived yet. That day is notorious for bringing more snow. Hopefully, what we had the last two weeks will be the end. The chard and broccoli are still producing. The rest are waiting for warm weather to arrive […]
