garden

hi friends . we have bought tomotatos and bought them. the cut worms just cut the tops of of them.  and hubby puts sticks next to them to stop them. that's what they tell you to do.

we have never had this happen to us.   we might lose one, but that would be all.. hubby has got 23 plants and all he wonted to plant was 12.
 last year we planted 18 and had way to many . i worked all summer putting up and canning. of course our grandkids love to open a jar and get a spoon. and we just planted one row of rattlesnake beans, a few years ago we planted 2 rows and i put up 70  quart jars and we gave away 10 or 12 bushels.

last year we planted 2 rows of orka and filled 2 freezers full so only 1 this year.

saturday hubby and i planted 2 rows of squash and a half row of cucumber's, and when it get's warmer we will plant some purple hull peas. and that will be our garden.. any thing more we can't handle.

we will give stuff to my  90 year old aunt . she can't wait for it every year.  we were giving  to my sis-in-laws aunt but she died last fall. she loved my sweet pickles. i carried her a pint  last summer  and she called me the next day to tell me she had finished off the jar, so of course i took her a quart.  i really miss her she called me every week and we would talk for hours. she was 89 years old when she died.
well i have depressed you enough
 love you'll    see you friends

I don't have any advice about the tomatoes but I'm sure jealous you have such good luck with the okra - I love that stuff. And sweet pickles too! blessings, marlene
