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!

"Elizabeth, I use chicken manure "tea" to keep it so green and the bugs don't like it either. About every 3 weeks seems to be enough."

"Thanks for the nice remarks Keryn. All the fire damage happens on the east side of the mountains here in WA state. The trees behind us are in a "greenbelt" just 30 ft wide with thick underbrush like blackberries and huckleberries, salal…"

"It is good to find out a plants real name, so many have the same common names. The common names change depending on what country you live in too. So when you like something that has been posted, its still hard to find."
