Talking 1st Garden pick of '08.

I know some of you have been picking and canning for a while now, but because of my late start just started picking some things yesterday.

We had new potatoes and canned green beans last night. Hard to beat!

I did manage to plant another 50 potato starts yesterday (in the mud), and have about 50 more to plant today.

Looks good Nica.
Did that standing water take out any of your plants?

Up here all I've had so far has been rhubarb and strawberries. Not that I'm complaining
Give it another month and I'll have cucumbers coming out my ears, with beans and tomatoes to boot.

Me too..We've had two rhubarb pies, and I usually eat the strawberries before they get to the house. One of my favorites.

My cucumbers and cantaloupe are doing pretty good. About another month.

I dodged the rain to take these. The cantaloupes and corn really need weeded.

Little early to tell. Sure didn't do it any good.

We picked our first tomatoes today, about 2-3 weeks behind our normal schedule. Should be eating them daily for quite a while now.
