My Top Ten Fav Picks Of MM # 36


Here is the one lone picture I have of a red tomato. When I went back for it the next day, it was gone. I had such nice visions in my head last Spring of all the tomatoes I was going to grow and all of the wonderful ways to prepare them. 

 Next year, I'm going to cover them up. Here is one of the many tomatoes which met it's demise long before turning red. I found bird droppings all around, very large bird droppings. I didn't know that birds liked green tomatoes.
 Anyway, a master gardener, I'm not. But, I'm not giving up! Here in California, you can have a vegetable garden all year. So, I'm starting my Winter crop, maybe I'll do better. We'll see!
 Above are some carrots I'm trying to grow from just carrot tops and below are red potatoes I'm growing from a potato I chopped up. I've been reading about growing food, from the food you buy in the store. So far, it seems to actually work!
 And ever since I visited the fair this year and seeing the big beautiful sunflowers growing in the garden, I added some to mine while I still can.
 I can't wait to make a bouquet out of these!
 These are some green beans I've started, hoping to make some Salade Nichoise
 And here is where I tore out the zucchini and planted my Winter crop. Cabbage, cauliflower and broccoli. I'd like to see a bird try to fly away with those!
And now for the top ten, if you were featured this week, feel free to grab a featured button from my side bar!

Hi Mary! I'd say just pull those tomatoes while they are green and fry them! That's what we'd do in the South! Thanks for featuring my pillow! Happy weekend!...hugs...Debbie

Hi Mary! Thank you for featuring my Beadboard Wallpaper in Kitchen Cabinets. It's great to know that people appreciate what you are doing. Also by hosting, other bloggers can inspire each other and possibly become friends long distance. Have a blessed Sunday and a week ahead.
