Planting Day!!!

Finally, I got outside and started planting...........all tomatoes today...........4 different kinds....3 of each and about 3 plants in each pot
I bought these seeds last year and planted them but I had to leave for Jim and by the time I got back,
they were all dead.  They are organic seeds from BH&G that I bought at Walmart.  Hopefully, I'll have better luck this year.
This is Cherokee Purple tomato; an Arkansas heirloom variety if I'm not mistaken..........I'm probably late planting these but oh well....better late than never............
 These are San Marzano tomatoes; great for sauce and canning.............
 This is Brandywine; another old heirloom variety...........these are not hybrids so I think I can save the seeds from year to year on all of these.........
and last but not least...........Red Cherry tomato...............
I know these produced last year because when I came home there were gobs of rotten ones all over the dead plant.
Do you garden at all or plant anything?  I have to use containers because of all the critters.  Do you have any favorites that you like to plant?  I'll be planting every day from now on! 
Here are some "tidbits".............
I have not tried these but I want to as they prevent you from having to vent your jars every day when you are fermenting things like sauerkraut etc........Here's the link and recipes

I've not tried this recipe but you can hardly ruin any recipe for minestrone soup and it is so good for you!  Here's the recipe

I don't know about you but at my age I am starting to feel my hips giving me 'twinges' so maybe these will help me stay limber.....some of them I may not be able to do........we'll see! LOL!  Click on picture to enlarge.

and for a little bit of humor...........

I hope you are safe, well and enjoying your home.  Happy Trails!!!

  1. Seeing you plant gives me hope that spring MAY come someday. It's snowing here today off and on. I went to the curb to bring the garbage cans back and I was covered by snow in just a few minutes. It's all gone again for the moment but the sky is darkening again.
    I need to try some stretching exercises again. Maybe it would help my back. Wishing you a great evening Sam.
    Blessings,
    Betsy

    1. I saw the weather and they said the west was getting more snow. Our winters are so short that I can't keep up! LOL! I've got to mow today if the mower will start. Spring is right around the corner. Enjoy what you have...I'd love a snow storm but it's pretty much out of the question. We got none this year.

  2. Those stretches are basic yoga poses. I try to do at least a little yoga every day. My doc thinks it's good for me, and so do I. Not just the stretching, but stress relief, and coordinating breathing with the moves for relaxation. My 71 tear old body can't bend as well as a 20-something body could, but I feel better after doing yoga. Once we can go out again, I plan to go back to class.

  3. Oh good luck on your tomatos this year. How lovely it would be to be able to step outside and pick your tomato for your table. And they taste so much better than the ones in the store.

  4. I like Romas the best. We grew the Cherokee purple one year I was not impressed. I am going to find a container and plant some lettuce this year. I am not fond of Minestrone soup or Split Pea....just vegetable or potato soup for me please! Yes staying safe here for another day :)

  5. It is still very chilly here and we have had so much rain our yard is a swamp. We really don't plant much anymore. Our yard is mostly clay and once July hits it hardens like concrete and cracks. We have to use city water to try to keep everything going. I think it is cheaper to buy at farmer's markets than to pay that water bill. We will have to see how it goes this year. I see alot of people interested in canning and preserving which might drive up prices.

  7. Oh wow, just think of all that fantastic pasta sauce you're going to be able to make when your tomatoes are ready. The garden centres here are all closed but are still accepting online orders. Apparently, seeds are very hard to come by now. I knew I should have bought some the other week when I spotted them in Aldi but I thought 'nah, too early yet'. Little did I know!!Happy gardening.x

  8. Try MI Gardener or Baker's Seed Co, which offers free shipping regardless. I'm sure you could also order from Walmart but they require $35 minimum for delivery, I think.

  9. Nice! I can't wait for planting weather here. It's still too cold in our parts.

  10. I look forward to seeing what your garden grows. We haven't "gardened" for years, but in the last 20 years or so I have tried container gardening with very mixed results. Mostly disappointing results. For several years now I've only grown flowers and I have them to rarely disappoint. ;^)

  11. DO YOU NEED A GOOD SPELL CASTER TO BRING BACK YOUR LOST LOVE EMAIL: LOVESPELLDOCTOR0@GMAIL.COM FOR HELP I have been in relationship with my boyfriend for 2 year now and we were planning to get married soon and all of a sudden he left me for another girl, i really love this guy and never can imagine my life without him. I further tried all my best to get him back but all my effort to get him back in my life did not work out. It was on this faithful day, i came across some comments on a website about this great spell caster called Dr love so many persons claimed that he help them to renew their relationship and bring their ex back, i had to contact him because he was my last hope. I contacted him through his email and he assured me that in two days time my boyfriend is going to leave the other girl and come back to me and it was a very great surprise to see my boyfriend coming back to me after two days.

  12. I have been married with my wife for 6 years and recently she broke up with me and it hurt me deeply when she told me to leave her alone and that she does not love me anymore when i was always faithful and honest to her. I tried all the ways to get her back buying her what she wants like i always did and she still left me heart broken and she even has a new boyfriend which destroyed me even more until a friend of mine from high school directed me to Dr Emu. This man changed my life completely. I followed everything he told me to do and my wife came back. I was stunned everything happened exactly like he told me. I had faith in everything he told me and everything was true. You can contact him via email: Emutemple@gmail.com He will help you in anything you need and quick to answer once you contact him through his whats-app number: +2347012841542 Website: http://emutemple.website2.me/
