Thank you on behalf of all of us!

The second flower is a daylily, or hemeracallis. I can't give you a name...I started it from a package of mixed hybrid seeds many years ago.

Oh, wow! Look at that ripe tomato! I'm craving a homegrown tomato SO bad!

Here's a new daylily I just got last year, plus two more I started from seed.

nice pics, jeeks.

i just took in a load of turnips last night. now i need a killer recipe for them. dw says she won't eat them.

i also have a ton of swiss chard ready, and have been picking sugar snaps every day. they usually don't make it into the house.

also noticed the first few corn tassles popping out. can't wait.

as far as peppers, goes, i have a few anaheims about the same size as yours, and a good bunch of large, green jalapenos ready to pick. i'm waiting for the thai birds and hot cherry peppers to come in so i can have a sinus clearing party.

Sounds great BT. I'm the exact same way with peas, LOL. I'll be mowing the lawn and grab a handful. When it's time to actually cook something, there's none left.

Are you Guys in north or south jersey?? seems your gardens are way ahead of mine, and im not all that far away. Ive picked my first zucchini yesterday, string beans I already got a lot, just dug up my garlic and have been picking peas past few weeks, but my tomatoes are just flowering, peppers, no flowers yet , eggplants also barely flowering , and cucumbers a good 2 weeks away.

I'm in central NJ. But I gambled and planted plants at the end of March. The gamble paid off with the veggies....not so much for Atlantic City. lol

larry, i'm in north jersey, about 8 miles outside of the city. just west of vb.

jeeks started way before everyone else, and the weather warmed up early. god will get him back, though, i'm sure...
the traditional date for planting post-frost veggies is a week after mother's day here.

i remember reading that the earliest tomatoes are ready by the 4th of july, when following that schedule.
