We had a class here (unfortunately, I could not attend) on grafting your own tomatoes. Could be less expensive than buying them!
Happy New Year to all!

Wow, Cindy, that's great. I admire your vegetable gardening. I often
tell customers how to grow vegetables, but I can't imagine having the
time to actually grow more than tomatoes and peppers in pots. I am also
really glad you are feeling better.

Hi all, happy new year! Hope your holidays were good. I came down with a bad cold right after Christmas so none of the things I planned on doing
got done.  But the weather was pretty unpleasant too so I probably
wouldn't have done anything outside anyway.  I knew it was bad when I
looked forward to going back to work, because it would mean I wasn't
The usual pile of seed catalogs showed up though, so I had something to do when I wasn't asleep. I notice the big thing in the veggie catalogs
this year is grafted tomato plants.  Getting kind of expensive if you
ask me, but I guess not everyone wants to start 20 tomato plants from
seed. I have most of mine planned out the only question is will I have enough time to deal with it. Last year the corn came ripe when we were away, by the time I picked it, it was pretty tough. This year I thought I'd try the sh2 varieties that are supposed to hold longer. And maybe
mark on the calendar when I think it'll be ready.
I did get to spend quite a few hours in the greenhouse while it was
sunny, I turned the thermostat up a little so the fan doesn't come on
till it's about 85 in there. Very nice. It has been getting pretty cold at night though so I may have to run the heater. I notice the croton and
the coleus are suffering, and there's even one of the pelargoniums
looking a bit unhappy.
I got an email from a guy who wants to interview me about my website for his radio program. I guess it's internet radio. Has anyone listened to
his program? It's "In the Garden with Ron Wilson".  I'm going to
download a podcast tonight and see what it's like, think he wants to
talk to me next Saturday.
