    Hi Michelle,
    This is the first year for me too on heirloom tomatoes. I just love them! They are all so unique!

    I'm going on vacation this Thursday. Will be gone for 2-3 weeks. You are on the herb train, aren't you? Have some herbs for the train. Shall I pack 'em up and bring 'em over?

    I promised to send you this link and I forgot. I'm sorry. Check out the "Compost and Organics" Forum, The Unofficial NHGC Compost FAQ v3.0.

    Ha Ha Ha Michelle -- I have forgot what you are sending but plenty of time here to plant still. Melons can not stand to have their roots disturbed, so direct sow if ya can. They love lots of sun and it helps to put a shovelful of compost under where you will plant them. When they start running side dress with a half handfull of fertilizer. The first flowers on the vines are male and obviously dont set fruit so dont worry if ya have blooms everywhere but no melons--the female flowers show up later and when pollinated from a male flower set the fruit. Good luck and thanks.

    I live in East TN, right next to the Smokey Mountains. I definitely grow for the food. Last summer I was just going to grow 2 tomaotes in pots and some squash in a small flower bed. Then...the gas prices went straight up and the cost of groceries went with them. I decided that I can grow the foods I really like and that are expensive. My great husband supported me in my venture, although he is NOT a gardener. I had a local farmer till a garden 30x30. I figure kids are a great source of a work supply
    I had my 4 yr old out picking beans and ripe tomatoes. My 12yr old weeded and picked. EVERYBODY broke beans! My garden produced 12doz ears of corn, more than 3 bushels of green beans and more than 3 bushels of tomatoes, a dozen green and red peppers, and sweet potatoes (a huge amt.) I have quit the fast food track and giving quite so much to the stores.

    I also planted 3 cherry trees, a plum, and a peach. I already have 6 blueberries that produced more than 10 gal. This winter I've planted 2 apple trees and will plant 2 more this spring. I want to plant 2 or3 grape vines and a strawberry bed. I am trying to decrease my dependence on the retailer.

    Sorry for the long story. I don't know how to keep it short.
