Fried beets?, hmmmm. There are some boys from our church who are going to come help me they just haven't gotten here yet. Those dang weeds in the driveway are as tall as me 5'6". I was so busy with everything else it was like I blinked and there was a forest. Wish I was eating from your garden. I bought a big bunch of leek starts but haven't made a home for them yet. Gave some to Nancy and stuck the rest into a planter box. They need more room, I figure when I set up a fenced area to keep the rabbits out I will surround it with leeks as they supposedly don't like the onion/garlic family.

Vicky I am amazed at what you have done on this farm after doing so much by yourself. Please keep posting pics so we can keep up with you slaving away on the farm. take care

William, I love Beets and am interested in how your wife cooks them by frying,I've never heard of this we always boiled them then pickled with vinegar and sugar but I really want to know exactly how she does this and what foods she serves with the Beets. Thank you much for any info.

Vicky, I love your pictures you have been working hard. I am on my second planting of radishes, my yellow beans are about done and just started picking green beans. The Roma VF toms are just starting to ripen. I got one bed of onions all picked and about to do the other bed this week. I just planted cuks last week and they are doing fine. I am going to transfer my Leeks from the greenhouse to the garden beds. I have been picking beets 5 to 6 at a time and my wife has been cooking them and then frying them for us. The farm looks great, it will take another year to get it all cleared up and working again.

Keryn as to your summer getting too hot and dry. It has been a slow start but July 1 it turned hot 90s all week. We can get up to 115 around here but it usually only lasts a couple of weeks. Last 2 years it didn't get that bad.

Also can't wait til this area is full of veggies and flowers like it was when I was growing up.

Can't wait til my veggie garden is big enough to fill up my latest Goodwill find for $12.99!

"Your osteopermum look so lovely planted en mass. I can barely keep them blooming here. The fence finished just in time for everything to start climbing on it. Bravo! How many weeks of spring do you get before summer hits? "
