The other day I decided I needed to get on top of the seed collecting for the tomatoes. So, I started bagging blossoms on each plant.
After bagging I will wait until the fruit appears and take the bag off and mark the branch. When those tomatoes are ripe I will collect the seeds from them and they should be 100% true to type. I just love collecting seeds. :D
Corn, yummy corn. That top one had a couple little ones growing on it. We've been eating corn all week long.

It's growing. LOL! Now that the corn is so high you can't see anything else. Oh well.

So, this is my other project. Putting in the garden for the neighbors. It won't be too bad once I get the watering on timers. Then I will only be planting every two weeks and weeding every week. Going to get irrigation in on Monday. I'm just glad Dale (the ranch manager) tilled, rowed and put a 1/3rd of the compost in. Whew! Atleast I have the little john deere to help me bring in the compost. Bringing my dad's tractor over there and hooking up the auger and put in holes for the tomato amenities like I did for mine. Won't be so bad after everything is put in. ;-) Oh, and kept myself entertained by listening to car talk and wait, wait, don't tell me on NPR. :-D

Beautiful lettuce. Everyone has been talking about my lettuce at market. How nice it looks. Definately a confidence booster. LOL! It's so yummy. Saving that one head on the left for making lettuce wraps. Yum!
Beets! Everyone loves the beets too. Too bad its going to be too hot for beets in the coming weeks. Can't wait to plant again in July and August. Yum! Had beet and beet green salad last night. One of my favorites!

Corn is growing well. Yes, I know, weeds. Today or tom. they will be gone. Need to fertilize that row too. Weeded and fertilized the other row. ;-) It is a nicer day today. Nice breeze and definately cooler.
