A bit of gardening

After a visit to our local (Serres) Nursery,

Golden Jubilee Sweet Corn & Jet Star, BeefMaster & Early Girl Tomatoes.

Chris realized he needed to prep the ground.  And prepping the ground means using noisy machines that dig in the dirt!

For Chris, his idea of fun.  For me, a picture taking opportunity with blogging in mind.

And when I say a “bit”  of garden I mean it.  Here is our whole garden strip.

We have three different tomato plants, some sweet corn and on that table yonder (out of the dogs way)  and past the compost bins, are the herbs.

The Cast of Tomatoes:

Early Girl is ready 20 days ahead of the others and is a medium, firm and meaty tomato, good for slicing which I will use in salads and eating like my grandma used to serve; fat slices with salt sprinkled on and a dollop of mayo.

BeefMaster is really large (up to 2 lbs) solid, meaty and flavorful, which I will use for BLT’s, hamburgers fresh from the grill and making pasta sauce.

Jet Star is medium, firm and flavorful, which I will use for roasting, sauces and freezing.

A nice start to my herb container garden with cilantro, oregano and french tarragon.   They will go nice with all those tomatoes later on!

As usual, The Cats are keeping a close eye on all activities.

and Cali takes advantage of the nice, dry day to do one of her favorite things:

Have a nice scritchy roll around on the concrete…

wait a minute!  What’s He doing here???   Huh?

Yep, we’re in the big time with this garden…not!  But we will enjoy it this summer:P
