Finally answering some questions from days ago. Someone asked what we were doing in the garden lately. Well as of yesterday all my boxes have been refurbished and additional MM added to fill them up. I filled 2 new 4x8 boxes added two new trellises. I went with 2x8 lumber this year insted of the double 2x6's I used on all the others. By the way it was 70 degrees yesterday. Someone asked about paste tomatoes so I finally looked. The best producer I have ever had was last year with Viva Italia. It is a hybred with many, many letters after the name. It is a determinate but produced all season. The tomatos are large for a paste and the yield was tremendous. Since the prospects of irrigation this year are nil (no snow), the garden will be the prime focus this year. Last year we lost irragation the end of May and we lost close to 100 vines.

New (for me) this year are kale, broccoli, fennel, sorrel, arugula, tomattillo, mustard, korean mint and strawberry spinach. I have beds of strawberries, rasberries, rubarb, blueberries and garlic. Then the stuff I always plant are lettuce, snow peas, carrots, peppers, eggplant, chard, tomatoes, paste tomatoes, basil and many other herbs in barrels. Also I do cucumbers and radishes. What I am not planting this year are squash or melons in the hopes of getting rid of the squash bugs that totally took over last year. What are you doing?
