So, where are you located, as others have asked? I'm in the Chihuahuan desert and my over wintering native pepper plants are just starting to show the first signs of re-growth.

Thanks alot

That really cheered me up. Had 13" of the white stuff fall in 7 hours yesterday. Add this to the 16" still on the ground and highs of freezing and my garden that's buried for a good long time yet.ARRRRGGGG

I can't even get into the greenhouse yet, and we heat it, because of snow and frozen soil in it.

But hey the sun is shining today(even though it's only 30F)and the nights bring those great northern lights still. Take care while I stay warm up here. Anne Smithers BC(500 miles south of the Yukon border)

Those of us that have to wait can always take comfort in knowing ya'll have the sharks too :>) We warmed up, but still have threat of a hard freeze next week sometime, so I'm still in containers in the seedling house.

Rub It In !! UGH !!! I can smell those tomatoes !!! I'm going to faint !! I am beginning my seeds tomorrow in the greenhouse...have about 6 weeks until I can even think of planting in my garden. I can at least play in the dirt in there.

It might be only 60 degrees and raining here in Maine today, but I know that by September I'll be sick of tomatoes!!! Til then, I will be admiring your pictures, Ourfarm :-)!!

-- Marcia (, April 01, 2002.

Great pictures. I'll be glad when I can see something like that in my own garden.

-- Murray in ME (, April 01, 2002.

With another 1/2" of snow arriving today I drooled looking at the pictures of your veggies. I have a 10' dining room table full of seedlings and it sure gave me incentive to work on them today knowing what they'll look like in 2 or 3 months.

You might have wanted to make us jealous but you inspired me! :)

-- Anna in Iowa (, April 01, 2002.

don't you feel really bad about emailing such pictures to all those snow bunnies and those of use who are just getting started!!!LOL Next thing we know you'll post a picture of a big, fat tomato sandwich and a glass of sweet iced tea. (they are beautiful--enjoy!

Lovely pix. I won't trade my cool mountain summer nights for all your warm spring days and summer heat, even though I can't seem to get a vine ripened tomato here. Win some, lose some ;o) kim
