Your garden looks great! Since we have so many 'microclimate' areas, lettuces are not yet able to be planted by us., but the tomatoes are thriving, as are peppers. Sammy and Frankie are just like our dogs, walking out to the garden and watching you work; they don't watch TV or read the paper: you are the variety in their life.


Hi Cathy - It's doing surprisingly well, considering that I have a "black thumb" of the highest order.


Love the raised garden. Palm sugar any different from cane sugar?


MrsZ told me to tell you her favorite heirloom seed vendor: They send out free catalogs twice a year, and this is where we have bought all our heirloom seeds from.

Just when we were used to San Diego, now we have to figure out how to grow stuff in Seattle. The summer growing season isn't 9 months long anymore!


Hi Billy - Yes, there's a distinct difference. You should try it out. Read the labels though, much of what is sold as palm sugar is cut with a lot of cane sugar.

Hey MrZ! Funny thing, we have one of their catalogues, though I was looking at it mostly for the peppers! The Missus still remembers that huge load of tomatoes. I'm sure you'll dial it in soon enough. Hope all is well.


Hehe, love the story of the ladybugs. Just came back from a visit to my parents and their garden is out of control. My mom has about 20 tomato plants! And then she has to keep gifting them away.


Hi Kirbie - LOL! We...well I'm, trying not to let it get too out of hand!
