Saving Okra seeds.
Being silly while saving seeds. It can't all be that boring.

New Garden Patch

Here is what we started with. 1/2 acre of grass and a 13 horsepower tiller. My friend Paul showed me this post on craigslist about someone in Carmichael that needed someone to garden thier backyard. How lucky am I to have such a good friend keeping an eye out for me. If you see this post Paul, Thanks! The garden is just a couple blocks away from our house. So, for the next 5 years this will be our garden. Yippee!

Mostly tilled.
Almost done. This was at 5 O'clock. Rog finished tilling at 5:30. We did it! Thanks Rog, your the best! Now to make rows so that it will drain properly when it rains next. I saw some worms when I was digging around too. Yeah! This is so exciting! I need to transplant strawberry plants and plant some garlic. Yum!

Pineapple Tomato

So, this is the only tomato I got besides the sungold cherry tomatoes. It's a pineapple tomato. It was green when I picked it and I put it in a bag like my friend Paul recommended. And it worked. Probably doesn't taste as good as it would right off the vine, but I will take what I can get after my soil disaster with my transplant tomatoes this year. Really don't buy Edna's Best Organic soil. It's expensive and its not as good as Peaceful Valley Farm Supplies'.
Isn't it pretty?
