This year, we added 5 recycled tractor tires to our garden.

Most of the plants are really thriving and we are just beginning to reap our first vegetables.

I don't want to jinx myself by counting my peppers and tomatoes before they ripen, but things are looking mighty good here in the PNW this year. Of course, it could all go to sh#t tomorrow and rain for the next two months, but it's not looking that way.

Fingers crossed.

Boodawg, using your car as a dehydrator is brilliant!

Fingers crossed.



I'm crossing my fingers for you too Ghost.


I've got a good showing from a wide variety out here, but not a big production yet....

Apriot harvest at our "Ranchette" last week.

Yummmmy! No chemicals. Picked ripe or mostly ripe.

Good stuff guys!



I'm psyching up for Ghosts next batch of Doom Sauce!
These are partially roasted Serranos and garlic, because the Habaneros aren't ready yet.

Is this you, BooDawg? It's your van. I passed by on the YARTS bus. This is at Cookie Cliff pull-out.

The only thing new that I have is a nettle plant that I stole from Seward Park here in Seattle. It's in a pot but I can't control the seeds. These things spread well with the right conditions. Nettles? Yeah, I rub it on my feet and eat it too.
