Wonderful lot you have there Alix

I really like the idea of growing strawberries...are they difficult to grow?

i just took in my first 4 hungarian hot wax peppers today. i only plante about 3 weeks ago, so it was a surprise.

they weren't hot and didn't speak hungarian...

but they still tasted good. they'll be going into a dish of veal and peppers on monday.

Kathleen transplanted okra (she started with seed). The plants are 6 to 8 inches tall right now... AND they have pods!!!!!!! Joy!

They are tiny, but they are there.

Ok. Not in my garden yet, but I am preparing a bed for roses. Need to get lots of compost. I want a shrub type rose, would like it to be red. I am at almost 7000 feet altitude. Any ideas???

My DH said that this is the last year that he is planting tomatoes. The "darn" ground squirrels or chip monks, what ever they are called, are eating them all. He has put chicken wire around all the plants and they still get in. He has even sprayed with a product that is suppose to keep them away and it doesn't seem to bother them at all. He said that all the money he has spent this year on these plants, and all the watering he has done is wasted. Next year he is just going to go the the farmers market and buy them.
