While gardening this afternoon, I found a tomato growing on one of my plants, and the potatoes are pushing through the surface!

Finally got my first tomatoes, about 2 weeks late.  Everything is about 2 weeks late this year.  I've gotten peppers and zucchini, but the squash bugs have successfully killed all the zucchini plants.  Cucumbers are good and I've picked several.  I see tiny beans forming.

Sorry about the double post, but several seconds went by and it hadn't gone, so I sent again.  Oops.  I don't know how to delete it.  Anybody help?

Well I finally got out in the garden again today.  The tomato plants are so full that I had to use extra cages just to prop them up.  There were about a dozen red plum tomatoes but the Early Girls are just now starting to color.  Thank goodness I only put in three tomato plants.  The pepper plants are pathetic, haven't grown hardly at all since I planted them months ago.

In other news, the weeds are all grown back again(last week I chopped up almost all of them) due to all the heat we've had.  That darn parslane keeps coming back everywhere even though I've been trying to kill it for about 10 years.  Time to try the newspaper trick to kill it.  Just hope it works better than all the other things I have tried over the years.

Well walking around my plants this morning I found that 1 of my 3 Filbert bushes is producing nuts!
I thought it would be another year before they started producing so all I have to do now is try to keep the deer and ground squirrels away. 
I got 2 trees last weekend and put them in the ground on Sunday so I now have 2 Japanese maples in the front.  I still need something along the west side of the house.  My goal is to eliminate as much grass as possible and have more trees and shrubs with perennials planted among them. 
I have started volunteering at a place near me that sells Hosta plants and all the proceeds go to an organization called Heifer International.  There have been a few hostas that I have potted up and an eye will break off those do not get potted up so volunteers take the straggly bits home.  I have picked up 3 or 4 no name hosta plants that if they survive will fill in a small area I have in the back that I have started to plant. 

By the way if anyone wants a great group to doante to check out Heifer International.

I picked more green beans last night, plus a cucumber and 2 peppers.   What I did for weed control is when I put in the plants, I put paper around the area and covered it with grass clippings so it wouldn't blow away.  In really heavy weedy areas I used cardboard.  it lasts all season and right now it is pretty obvious where I did and didn't use the weed barriers.  Should have done a larger area.

The Cucurbit Family Plants are beautiful. Tomatoes, peppers, parsnips, herbs are growing. Malabar is running around.

Four inches of rain fell Saturday along with trees and limbs. I used the raised garden method again this season.

Another down pour is occurring. The plants are getting taller. I was able to cut a ripe tomato Sunday afternoon.  The tomato I cut taste wonderful.

I found a Crabapple tree in a closeout section of a nursery so I just planted that this morning.  
I need a few more trees for the side then it will be time to figure out whet smaller plants/shrubs I will put in during the next 2 or 3 years. 
I think I will not do any more trees for a while to see how the ones I planted fill in.  One of the ones I planted last year does not look so great, a Dogwood may end up being replaced next year. The only thing that would get me to plant another tree is if I can get a good deal on a Gingko. My only reservation on that is they are slow growing and I will not see the results of that.  Nothing like a tree to make you realize your mortality.
