tomatoes are prolific!

Tomatoes: 18 yellow pear, 13 sweet 100's, 3 john baur, 10 green zebra, 11 romas, 5 orange, and 6 black krim. There are a dozen or so other tomato seedlings but the marker is gone...so mystery tomatoes!!

Update: We believe the tomatoes are the SeedSavers Evergreen tomatoes.

freeze warnings

It's been a week of frost and freeze warnings. The beds have been covered and the fruit trees are wrapped. The warm March meant that many plants are ahead of schedule. I'll try to get a picture post up sometime.
