We live in zone 6a and I have been gardening and cooking for years. This blog is an opportunity for me to share with you my success and those failures that come about on occasion. Plus, I want to hear from all the gardeners and bakers and cooks out there and learn from you. Feel free to share your ideas.

Tomatoes at Week One

I have to tell you that I have never had tomatoes grow as much in one week as what I have planted this year. In one week they have grown around 6 to 8 inches. Hopefully this is the year of the tomato.

eggplant and basil transplants are also in. The season is moving forward.
