Yes it is... and it's nice to be able to jump around so many different places quickly, and see the same faces.... we might have many similar interests, but in places that are so big, it's hard to get around as much. :)

Which ones are you going to do, Frank? Are you doing any under lights as a back up?

My tomato list keeps growing and growing, but my space stays the same!

Hi Melissa the day lillys are mature along my walk thank you.
.
Hi Arlean did you ever find the espillared (sp) trees you were hunting?

Frank I would expect them to have to rush to mature much like the wild plants that come up on their own. But there is one sure way good luck and be sure to let us know.

Susan hope you grow some big ones this year.

I guess I will plant about 120 again this year I don't know why all I know is they are all gone at the end of the year. I have happy friends and visitors.The mainstay will be morton.I will start about 75 tumbler cherries for friends it is a great prolific cherry.

eweed,
Espelier (I probably don't have the correct spelling either but I know what you are referring to -No one in Iowa carries them. I did see them in Las Vegas nurseries but not done with anything that is hardy here.

Hello everyone!

I don't post very much but I lurk a lot!

Like everyone else is saying "It's nice to see old friends and familiar names!" :o)

i have tried both the brandwine suddeth andthe mortgage lifter.and i liked them both.

i try to grow tomatoes for size as i cannot tell the difference in taste between one tomato and another like some people can. i only know the difference between home grown and the supermarkets.

they got big enough but since i grow in containers they never reach their full size but i did get some 19 ounce tomatoes from the mortgage lifter.

Black Cherry is a regular in my garden. I plant 2 just in case something happens to one of them.

This is my first year for Giant Belgium too. I have 6 plants that are ready to go into the ground but I'll only use 2 of them and either give away or sell the others.

I don't have any experience with the others.
