    I can't wait to get ours started. Just as soon as the weather warms up a bit I will be out getting my daily dirt manacure! Looks like you are about to harvest a few things.

    That is awesome. I love growing tomatoes and peppers! You have had your garden going awhile already. We cannot put anything outside until after mid-April. For instance, last night it froze here again. Two days ago it was 81 degrees and now it is 31... brrr!

    Do you have many plants in your garden? Any squash or onions? I tried to grow some okra last year (not really for the okra, but for the blooms hahah.)

    Cheers,

    Healthy looking plants. Nothing like growing your own vegies. Funny how we give the common names to our vege and fruits. In Malaysia we normally call peppers Chilli and the 'brinjal' for the egg-plant. Of course the tomato retains the same name , pronounced the English way.

    Looks great! The tomatoes and eggplant are making my mouth water. My vegetable garden is still on the heat mat, just starting to push out of seed. We grew Okra for the first time last year--my, those flower are gorgeous! And the pods were pretty tasty, too.

    Got my tomato, pepper, squash , cucumber, cilantro, tomatillo, and okra started in pots on my kitchen table. Maybe after this round of storms the snow will finally all melt off and they can go out in the ground. I rather enjoyed the 70 degree days last week, back to snow this week. Wish spring would quit teasing and just come to stay.
