A lot is going on in the garden. Ill have new pictures and entries up this week. The potatoes in the bags are ready to have soil added to them and I will blog this process.

I have more plants to sell. I will be at the Riverhill Flea Market on May 22nd. It is Sunday 10 am to 1pm. I will have everything.

This week is the official no more frost date for Maryland. A lot of people in the neighborhood wait till then to buy and plant tomatoes and vegetables.

If you want to pick up tomatoes and stuff in the neighborhood (and these dates don't work)feel free to email me at I am home most evenings.

I will be available on Sunday 5/8 10 am to 1 pm and Saturday 5/14 10 am to 1 pm. I am only advertising these day to the blog and via email. I'll be in the backyard. Come by. Bring questions. I'd be glad to help you out with planning a garden. I planted a lot of vegetables in containers inlcuding 2 foot dwarf tomatoes and gaint 1 pounders. If you have limited space, come see the containers. It will give you a good idea about the size of container you will need for a container garden.
