Late...But DONE!

Mr. Yesteryear Acres and my son have been working non-stop getting our garden in.  They have been coming in at night around 11:30pm, dirty, tired, and barely recognizable.  They win the award for garden dedication!  We have a large garden (about 5 acres) and it takes a while to get all the vegetables in.  This is the latest we have ever finished getting everything planted.  With an entire week of our planting season spent in Annapolis, we were even more behind than we had hoped.  Thankfully Mr. Yesteryear Acres had already started all the plants so hopefully now that they are all safely tucked in the soil, we will be able to catch up. Total Tomato count.....170 plants! Mmmmmmm I love tomatoes!!!  We have Early Girl, Better Boy, Golden Jubilee, Sweet 1000's.  Tomato HEAVEN!  I have serious Tomato canning to do this fall!  I need at least 150 quarts to get us through the winter.  Along with my tomato heaven, we have Blue Lake Green Beans, Early Wonder Beets and Detroit Deep Red Beets plus Leeks, Peppers, Lettuce, Spinach, Carrots, Onions, Radishes, Peas, Cucumbers, Eggplant, Brussels Sprouts, Broccoli, Zucchini, Cabbage, pumpkins, popcorn AND rows upon rows of Sweet Corn. Mmmmmm!  Now the waiting begins.  Best day of the entire summer??????  FIRST RED TOMATO!  Let the growing season begin!!!!
