I am trying very hard!!

Happy Friday dear friends!! I love the week-ends! Tom is home most of the two days . We go to the farmers market. That is one of our high lights of our day. We love to go to the farmers market and it is really getting good now too!! You can get the best lettuce there this time of year. Sugar snaps peas and wonderful green beans. Peppers, beautiful peppers, but not hot peppers. I don't know why they don't grow any. We do though!!! We have Jalapeno's that have lived through 2 winters and this year is the third year of producing for us. They are giving us 3 or 4 a day now. Our Cayenne has given us one pepper so far but is loaded with peppers. That is the one that made it through the winter. We have seeds we started , think 5 that is in the front garden that already has little peppers on them!!
We are going to have hot peppers up the ----!!!!! Bambi has just decided one day about a month ago that she did not want her picture taken any more!!!!!!!!! When I get the camera out she hides. If I keep it out ( the camera) for a while she just will not look at me!! So when you see a pic of Bambi that is looking at the camera it is an old pic!!! Like the one below. She has no white face!! The top pic of course is Happy in the garden helping!!! We all work in the garden every morning after walk and breakfast!!!

This year we have cherry tomatoes and big tomatoes and a bunch in-between!!! I hope to have more to put up this year!!
Do have a happy week-end!!! Eat well and healthy!!! We are what we eat.
Love coming your way, Happy, Bambi & Fern


  1. We hope you have a wonderful weekend. Our weather is beautiful this week so have sepnt lot's of time working in the yard!
    Hugs, Gail, Mistaya and Maggie

  2. Hi there, Sounds like your weather has been better than ours-I think the herbs I planted last weekend were probably drowned in all our rain. Many of our rescue dogs hated cameras-I think they were frightened of the flash.
    Have a wonderful weekend, planting and at the farmers market.
    Hugs, Noreen

  3. Fern, I did not know a pepper would produce more than one season since ours always die when it frost and the weather gets cold. I have had tomatoes that started producing again but the frost got them. Enjoy your garden!! All I am getting now is green onions and a bit of basil.


  4. Hi Miss Fern, I am all green with jellyness that YOU have red tomatoes already. Mine don't even have blooms yet. I only grow green peppers.. I don't like HOT stuffs.. Well, except fur Ruby and Penny, of course.
    When my mom wants a little Heat in something she uses ROTEL. THAT is about the only thingy we actually Buy at the store.. as far as veggies are concerned. hehehe
    Do you Freeze your peppers??? My mom freezed BAGs and BAGs of Green Peppers. And Onions too!!! They have not bought either of those thingys in YEARS.
    You have a lovely garden. It takes work.. butt it is a LABOR OF LOVE isn't it.

  5. Your right there Fern, you are what you eat, well mom eats all the wrong stuff and makes me eat dog biscuits!! How can that be right!
    Thanks for sharing what you are up to.
    Have a good week
