Peppers have been up a few days...... Not the best timing with no sun.....I'll turn the light on over the kitchen table for what it's worth. Yellow peppers all came up....I stuck a toothpick marker in each peat pellet. Won't be able to tell the jals from the habs until they get some true leaves.

Tractor Supply has 10 bags of Scott's topsoil for $7.00. I can't decide if I want to do the work.

Sort of like a tow truck for Matchbox cars??

I have three pineapples growing from the cut-off tops of my last mega-smoothie attempt for the church bake sale.

You got more 'maters than I have, Rich...... So far I have none......

I'll be plantin' the seeds this afternoon if all goes according to plan. Modem seemed to work pretty good as a heat source for the peppers.....I'll do a repeat with the 'maters.

I planted the 'mater seeds this morning......thought I bought more than just 3 types. Oh well.....gonna go with what I've got. There's a few peat pellets left over and I may go for 4 more jalapeno plants. They don't take up much space at all......

Trees are starting to set leaf buds......blueberry bush looks like it came through winter with no problems. Late frost last year eliminated any chance for a decent crop.....hope it doesn't happen this year. Only 1 fruit tree (out of 3) made it...... If I try fruit trees again I'll have to protect them allot better from the deer. Apple is just a stub.....plum as pretty much tore up. Pear tree looks like it was never touched.

I'm quoting myself. Looked up the Top Soil and the comments were totally negative. Label said Premium Top Soil. Commentators found pieces of wood and stones. Scott's response was the product contained ground up wood and stones and very little top soil. Maybe the label should say that. The color was black. Probably dyed.

Sounded too good to be true.

I bought a bag of 'premium potting soil' that was more mulch and stones than soil.

That's the American way......marketing.

Sounds like they're using compost that isn't given enough time.

My problem is that my soil is like muck, everything I've tried likes it but holds water too well so need to mix sand etc in to for drainage

How else are they going to market the stall sweepings and coop droppings?

===> Certified "Organic Fertilizer!"

Sounds like Bravo Sierra to me!

That would be far better than the wood fiber they sell. What they call premium potting soil is nothing more than poorly composted wood mulch.

Moved the 'maters to a sunny spot on my kitchen table......5 days and they are rarin' to go. The 'Nugget' (cherry) were 100% and need thinned.....heirloom green made a good showing. They look odd (ripe when green) but sure taste good. I made juice out of 'em in the 80's.....sure was weird drinking green tomato juice. Ketchup would have wild.....

No practice since we played 3 matches this week, so I spent a few hours tree trimming. Probably burned more calories than playing 3 sets of singles.

Rich should be doin' pretty good by now. I'm finally gettin' started. Rear tine tiller works like a champ.....my son had no trouble with it..... I stayed on the porch (shaded) with a beer. Finally put on a pair of shorts for what it's worth.....they're really a kilt with 2 legs and no pleats. The legs come just below the knees......

Berries look good.....all of them. Got red, black, and blue. I let some blackberries grow next to the fence.....if they do good they can stay. Oh, even have mulberries......they're starting to take on a reddish color.

17 plants made it ok.....I waited a little late to put them in pots but they perked right up. Bought 10 plants at Home Depot just in case. Can't quite bring myself to tilling up part of my yard.....I'll try plastic fence this year and hope it keeps the deer out.

Got the plastic 'construction barrier'.....and a t-post driver. I've had the t-posts for years.....used them to put a 2' extension on the chain link fence to keep the dogs in the yard.

Bought a rosemary bush.....tiny little thing. All I can do is kill it by bringing it indoors for the winter. Had a nice one years ago.....til I brought it in the house....

Shootin' for Thursday on getting most everything planted.

Lots of Grape Tomatoes so far . . peppers are thriving, but so far, no heat to speak of . . not suffering enough I suppose.

At least Rich has something......I'd settle for a solitary grape tomato..... Last time I had a pepper crop we had to test the Jalapeno peppers for heat....they virtually had none.

Finally got all the peppers/'maters planted......only took 3 days. Got a little rain this morning......needed it to get the Preen watered in. Kid put some deer repellent around the perimeter til I get the fence in place. 3 deer were ~50yds away and headed right for the 'maters yesterday.

Got 10 pepper plants......3 yellow (sweet), 4 jals and 3 habs. May buy a few more when prices drop. 17 'mater plants of varying types......got room for more when prices drop.

Corn and beans get planted when it's dry enough......still have plenty of time on those.
