Here is the backyard mater patch. There are about 115 plants here.

Here just below the mater patch is the cool weather veggie section with some onions, beets, lettuce, radishes, and spinach. Many things have been planted twice. The ground was too dry much of the time to germinate the seeds.

Looks good Jim you sure got a jump on us here. I have got to ask what kind of tree is that by that cedar below the early garden.

It's a pecan tree and has been there as long as I can remember, since I was a youngun. It has never had any nuts on it to amount to anything.

The garden looks great. We're scaling back this year some because of my back. Really looking forward to fresh ripe tomatoes.

125 tomato plants should keep any kitchen well supplied! Two beautiful looking patches, and such beautiful country! Reminds me a whole lot of up here, so I guess I'm partial to it... haha. Thanks for sharing, Jim!

The maters are blooming and have small maters on them. We should be having some sloppy, juicy mater sandwiches in a month :!: :D

We have had a week of cool, dry weather and low humidity here Dave. Great for farmin' chores, but not much good for veggies and mater ripening. I had rite many this time last year. I figure July 4 before they get here in abundance.
