    Catching Up

    Photo-upload-131470?1333903859 Went on a road trip to southern Oregon for a long weekend. Lots of driving but well worth it! Trying to catch up in the garden despite the nasty weather.

    Tomatoes Black Plum Paste and San Marzano Paste and Cinnamon Basil planted!

    Trying to get caught up with my virtual plantings and backdating this one. I'm finding the quick add feature does not allow me to pull up from specific plants.
