    I promised garden pictures...These were taken in early July, following a very cool May/June.

    Marrow squash close up.

    1. Northeast corner of MAIN garden..1000 sq. ft. of Potatoes (192 hills)

    2. Southeast corner of garden...80 plants of freshly mulched Hot peppers

    3. Onions starting to form...600+ onions in all

    4. s.e. main garden center...Marrow and Golden hubbard squash


    5. heirloom tomatoes, 28 cages on South end of main garden (42 plants in all )
    (* the remainder were planted in seperate locations to preserve seed purity)

    Thanks for sharing your hard labors. Marrow squash & heirloom tomato - stirring. Your Thanksgiving dinner must be a magnificent affair.
