My lack of a garden really got to me by May 5. So I scrambled to get in a 
few things. Six tomato plants (pitiful, pitful); 6 eggplant, 6 peppers; 4 
rows of popcorn, 3 bean teepees, 6 squash; 5 pounds of 'taters.. I feel a 
little better, but the tiny amounts are depressing as all get out.

The shallots Margaret sent last Fall are a glory....I figure they will be 
ready to harvest in less than 30 days. Just in time for me to start seed 
for a REAL fall garden <bg>.
