I just dont have the time or the space, you know?
We made kraut and 7 day pickles in MO right in the kitchen. I think that old crock is going to get brought out of storage and sterilized. Acres and acres of U-pick cukes every spring here.

Awesome, I still have my grandmothers crocks, I am gonna plant cabbage in the late garden and see if I can make her kraut, I have her recipe.
BTW, do you have u pick blueberry places there?
The ones around here didnt really get a crop due to the non-winter, I called the one right down the road, sure was disappointed when they told me.

Yes U-pick blueberries. Don't know what current status is but can find out. Classmates grow them.

I'd like to know, if you dont mind.......none of the u picks in Marion County had a crop worth a hoot, and I dont have any blueberry bushes.
For now.

I'll call mom tomorrow and find out what she knows. I'll be going home for a day on Tuesday. I remember seeing signs but don't remember where. There are lots of blueberries normally near the intersection of I-75 and I-10. I'll email N FL cousin about that area.

I think I may do an indoor seed starting set-up for next year.
No joke right?! I have to keep reminding myself that they are in different areas, with different growing seasons, lol!

I start everything indoors except turnips, radishes, onions, (basically all tubers) and corn. Those are all seeded directly into the garden, otherwise I start inside with the plastic greenhouse things.

I would dearly love to have some cherry and apple trees, but thats just not gonna happen this far south.
I'm SO jealous!!!! I LOVE guava juice, and no store around here sells them at all.


Anyway, so far I have tiny clumps of leaf lettuce (red susan and black seeded simpson), and chives, and radishes. The radishes are SUPER hot, which I love!

about ready to call it a night, we had a long day and a long flight back from Vegas, but I did take time to check the garden. I couldn't beleive what has happened. I can't tell where the beans stop and the squash begins. or how to tie up the tomatoes,so they don't become some kind to wild vines. There are a few plants that I don't even remember planting but they are certainly something: look like some kind of squash or maybe cuke or melons, I will let you know in a few weeks. I guess this is good, but it is a bit overwelming.
