The tomatoes grew like crazy in the raised bed (I posted 2 pictures of it on my spark page) - I ended up roasting a lot of tomatoes and freezing them to cook with later. I just used the last bag of them this week. They tasted so good. My son started a pumpkin plant at school and it actually produced a fairly large pumpkin, that is on the counter - I plan on roasting it soon, he would like a pumpkin pie. So I promised the kids we could grow carrots this summer, but we will do that in a large container so I can pull it into the garage next winter, plus it will be easier to cover with netting to keep out the carrot rust bug.
So Barb do you ever go rock hounding? I got into rock hounding when I lived in Albuquerque, NM. Great fun, when my littlest gets a little older I will start planning day trips for the family to go rock hounding.
Okay - I admit it, I am an Army brat and we typically moved every 18 to 24 months, Western Washington is the longest I have lived in one area - continuously. The following states I have had the pleasure of residing and gardening (I got into gardening when I was six years old)in: Colorado, New Hampshire, Kentucky, California, New Mexico, Arkansas, Washington, and Germany. Not necessarily in that order and some locations multiple times.
