Here in the South, it is time for turnip greens, radishes, collards, etc. I planted turnip greens, radishes, broccoli and brussel sprouts.

If you have 3-4 weeks before your first hard frost, bury a piece of the tomato plant just under the soil (leave 3-4 inches of the growing end aove ground. It should develop roots. You can then cut off the rooted part from the main plant and put in your 5 gal. container.

Sorry for how long it's been since my last post. A few things have moved forward garden-wise: The new girl tomato has done really well this summer, and has produced a bountiful harvest, well over 2 dozen tomatoes. Made some delicious chili this week which is almost gone. Did not plant the asparagus or peas. But the berm wall was not designed properly; one deadman is gone from rot, and the other is not level.Found an excellent article in Handyman magazine that shows how it should've been designed. Will use the timbers as a decorative outer wall. Can't move forward at all, not till I get employed or get my income tax refund.

Can someone tell me if I can overwinter this tomato plant? Not sure what to do, but have a 5 gallon pail to put it into, but obviously will need to trim off the sprawling plant. What's the best way to prune a tomato plant? Or is this a waste of time because it won't survive? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Next year plan on planting more tomato plants if I can find out where to put them. Again design is critical, and not sure where the best place is.

Live well, laugh often, love much.
