Walked around my garden this afternoon. 6 Peter Pan Squash, 2 Yellow Squash and 3 nice cukes. Got the steamer coming up to a head right now so we can have them for supper.



Life is good here in East TX.

Damn, it froze last night! Froze my tomatoes, peppers, ect... My neighbors, the cranberry growers, let me know this morn, that it got 27 degrees? We are, way low, in the "bog" swamp! Anyway, since 2000, it has only froze 3 times in June?! But it did, again!

The lake keeps us from going that low. All that 50 to 60 degree water is warmer than the freezing temps. Adds just enough of a warmer buffer to stop that cold snap in the spring.

I usually don't plant tomatoes and peppers and cukes etc until after memorial day in PA because that is the tradition because it is highly unusual to have frost after memorial day. I did plant a week early this year and I think I have dodged the frost bullet. It is disheartening to have to replant because of frost , I have been there.

Tired of cilantro that bolts too soon? Want a replacement that lasts all summer? Want a plant you can clone in 4 days in just plain water?

Well its called laksa or rau ram aka Vietnamese coriander and it tastes very similar to cilantro but better. Everytime you take off a small branch just dont remove all the leaves. A couple is fine.

4 days in about 1" of water and after a week in some potting soil.


After just a couple days in potting soil


It will look like this in within a month.

Ripe Aji Cito...these are sooooo tasty.



7 Pot yellow next to a cito...These are just crazy hot but have a really neat flavor too.

My plant is loaded with them.


Beni Highlands (mild habanero) They will turn yellow when ripe.


Scotch Bonnet MOA yellow...another butt burner.


NuMex64...really mild Anaheim


Korean gocho...these got about the same heat as a jalapeno or maybe a tad more.
