Random thoughts about my gardening and beekeeping experiences in Northern California's El Dorado County.

from there to here...
well, i did it again. no summertime posts, no updates - you would think i would know better. however, it is what it is. so lets jump back a few months to the garden. my last post showed a pretty good hail storm, a week after i planted my tomatoes in May. well, old mother nature did her best, er- worse - but we were able to pull out ok, but it was a tough year. tomatoes didnt produce until august, we had cool weather throughout the summer and didnt get the intense weeks of heat which really kick the tomatoes in high gear.
as you see in the picture (mid june timeframe) the garden did do well early. 2011 was a challenge, but gardeners are an optimistic lot, by nature - otherwise why would we plant seeds and dirt?
