I am sort of like a dog that chases a car and then wonders what to do after he catches one. Looking forward to the new content to be added in this forum.
I have a question and need advice . I could have posted this in the vegetable forum, but I think it is appropriate for here so I elected to post in our new forum. I was gone for 18 days and many of the plants I had started from seed died, so now I am getting off to a new spring start. I just went down to Lowe's and bought three types of tomato seeds, 'Sweetie', 'Fourth of July' , and 'Delicious'. The 'Sweetie' survived surprisingly well, and I will probably have enough of the Fourth of July' for our needs (I normally give away a lot of seedlings), but only a very few of the 'Delicious' survived. I listened to the ATP tomato pod cast and 'Kellogg's Breakfast' was highly recommended.
I would love to here some suggestions of favorite tomato suggestions for this area, mostly interested in a tomato for sandwiches and salads.
I would also love suggestions on any variety of annuals that do exceptionally well in this area and can be grown from seed. Need to fill a few empty spots.

I had mis-categorized the forum in the Gardening category. I moved it to the Regional category. Do you see it now?

Yes it is, the first time I have planted it. Hope it turns out as well as the Early Treat, that I have not been able to find locally the past two years.

First time I will be growing Sweetie. I chose it because of the description that claims it is sweet. I like the sweet cherry types.

Don't squat with yer spurs on!

People try to turn back their "odometers." Not me. I want people to know 'why' I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved

And this I spied in front of my door....was not there yesterday....all my fault because I directed that water to run right past the front steps! I have seen 5 foot snakes charge into the water after frogs and right at that spot..and in those rocks baby copperhead peek out to see if the coast is clear...😳

It is a grass snake..a smooth grass snake ( as opposed to rough )
Runs like a rabbit ...but if you scare it bad enough will bite. Non venomous

I wish all snakes would faint, instead of me. Whistling Rolling on the floor laughing I've got to get the city girl out of me. I love my flower gardens too much. In the past, I've been known to abandoned my garden if I saw a snake in it. Now, I'm just trying to keep a watchful eye Blinking and give them room to move on. . . . out of my yard. Rolling my eyes.
