how fresh is your produce.....

just thought i would rub it in....i picked some artichokes for dinner tonight...fresh off the bush....and i also planted this years garden today....brocholi....colifower....bell peppers...strawberries....green onions.....and zuchini.....there are some perks to the consistant year round climates.....my last years garden quit producing (except the articokes) about a month ago...figured that meant it was time to plant again

It snowed here tonight, was near white out for about an hour while I was out delivering. I'll just say it makes it a lot easier turning around in people's neighborhoods.....!

We've been getting lake effect snow for a couple of days now. I just washed my truck a couple of days ago when it was nice, went to Lowe's today and it's covered in salt again...DOH

28 degrees here this morning.... high on Friday is supposed to be 19 or so.....

However, About April, the tomatoes, peppers, snow peas, etc, will all be planted. Nothing like fresh Beefsteak Matos for dinner! Garlic is doing good though and should be ready for picking this summer.

Glad you are able to eat fresh homegrown stuff year round Mschnn!!!
