yep I plan on digging them in on my final attempt at tulips!!!
critters have eaten over 100 bulbs on me in 3 years.
I plan to go "Caddyshack", Bill Murray style, on them in the near future.... if you've ever seen the movie.

I have been picking peppers, eggplants and burpless cukes for about 3 weeks, but just took the first 2 tomatoes. There are a lot of tomatoes, but they are sitting there, still very green. Speaking of green, I planted a green cherry tomato plant this year. How do I know the green tomatoes are ripe?

I managed to get a few Ichiban eggplants before the rotten wildlife got them. Thankfully, the plants are very prolific.

These are split in half, prepped with oil, salt and pepper and ready for the kettle grill.
