weekend pull. My problem is the size is breaking the stems, but this is a start on about 15 lined up for the next week to color out. A Peach, Aunt Ginny's, and Black cherries. . .

Looking good omaha... I'm waiting on huge and still growing without splitting monsters to turn red... we're big and luscious but still majorly 'green' with envy!

. . "I feel your pain" I'm not a cherry mater guy per se. But those little black ones are a perfect taste.

I hope it is all the rain that we have had that has affected my tomatoes. I have not watered once since planting the weekend after Easter. From what I have seen so far if it is not too much rain these plants do not compare to those I have brought from seed year after year.

Those were featured and a favorite in I believe it was the March or April Southern Living. I gotta branch out and try some of these varieties. I'm still sticking with the hybrids and a few easy to find heirlooms. I can't believe mine aren't splitting yet from all this rain. I guess because its been so steadily wet there isn't growth not matching the skin's expansion. Wondering? Anyone having difficulty growing squash and cukes? For the last 3 years I've had a terrible crop and thought it was because of our severe droughts and chemical city water I used to tide over between few rain events. But you know what? This year expecting a bumper crop and I've got plenty enough blooms -- and no cukes on healthy plants otherwise... and 4 squash on healthy plants also with plenty blooms. I've got a late crop of beans coming along that I don't know yet how they'll be affected and the tomato/peppers are seemingly okay. I think its the absence of honeybees. Not good. I noticed during the wet periods I couldn't mow the yard -- I had major clover cover... and not one, I mean not one honeybee. Plenty of small black bumblebees... but not a honeybee. I hunted for them and have not seen a one.

Those little black cherries were featured as best tasting in Southern Living back in the spring... but I haven't tried them yet. I bet they are delicious. I can't believe none of my tomatoes have split, yet are still getting larger. It could be that the rain has been steady throughout the season so far. Its only a problem when we're going from hot/dry to cool/wet and we get those sudden bursts of growth. I can't seem to grow cukes/squash like I used to. I thought the poor turnout over the last 3 summers was because of drought. Not the problem this year. I realized though as I couldn't mow the grass because of the rain -- I had major clover cover. Not one... I mean not one honeybee to be found anywhere. We've got a few bumblebees, but that's just not going to do the pollinating job of it. Oh and btw... about your Life Insurance? You need to go back to your original policy and read all the fine print of that -- and hold them to it. It will depend on when that policy was written as to what you might find slipped into the fine print. Hold them to the promises made when you first made the agreement. Sometimes, no - they can't raise your rates. People, you need to read all the fine print... and as a strong/intelligent/purposed/in control human being -- read the warning labels of everything you consume... and beyond that... you DO NOT need to sign off on anything with blanks on the page NOR do you need to answer every cotton-pickin' question some/any forms of some/anybody/group/business/government every time they wish you to sign off on something. And give it hell while you're at it. Its YOUR money, YOUR property, YOUR business, YOUR privacy, YOUR body, YOUR life! When you are paying/living/doing for something, take the Pamplona BULL by the horns b'gosh and put some personal oompha into it all! Spin it around to who the boss is SUPPOSED to be for gosh sakes in most all of these ordinary situations. Smile of course... but smile hard like you mean it.
