I'm getting ready to go outside right now and divide up all my tomato plants, peppers and eggplant. I've got to put a pile of 28 assorted tomatoes out for me and 2 each of all I've got for my son and then my girlfriend has graciously offered to take some plants as well. She is going to take some Kale and Swiss Chard, thank goodness!! What in the world I was going to do with all the kale I'll never know. I am unsure whether I have told you about the new idea I read about on Gojee.com. In their food section there was someone who took their kale and made kale chips out of it and then crushed the kale chips up real small and put it all in a shaker. Now isn't that a cool way to get the vitamins and minerals from kale and especially for those who detest kale!!! You could shake that stuff on anything!
I have to get to work so I'll talk to you all later.
Twenty-Eight (28) Tomatoes have been planted and I've transplanted some Swiss Chard and Kale. Italian Red Peppers and California Wonders, Jalapenos and Eggplant are all planted as well. The only thing left to plant are the sweet potato plants.
I thought you might be interested in the fact that these are sweet potatoes that we've been growing now each year for probably 5 years. Very early in the Spring we take some of our leftover sweet potatoes, about 4 or 5, and put toothpicks in them and put each of them in a quart jar. You can see one here. The sweet potatoes develop these sprouts and then you take each of the sprouts and pull them gently from the potato and put them in another jar full of water and that sprout will grow roots. In June or whenever your ground is really good and warm you plant the sweet potato plants. Couldn't be any easier! There are other ways to do it but this is how I've done it for years and it's worked perfectly. Check my Picture Page for more pics of the garden!!
