Marv growing the first tomato seeds of the season!

The season has begun for tomatoes!!  Marv is getting our seedlings on their way.

Does anyone have any irresistible, or just yummy, recipes that include tomatoes?  We'd love to hear about them to help us get ready for the season.  This year we're hoping you all will share your recipes on the blog for all of us who need a little inspiration in the kitchen.  We'll try and make your recipe in our "test kitchen" and post the results for all to see.   Here are a few savory recipes you might enjoy that we've pinned ....Recipes Using Tomatoes

Also, if it's time for Marv to begin planting seeds, it might be time for you too.  If you have any questions for Marv or H.G. about what to do in your garden, please post your question below!

H.G. to the Rescue!

H.G. caught this guy today.  He, Mr. Owl not H.G., had been fighting with an eagle last night!  Poor guy couldn't move too well this morning so H.G. caught him and sent him to the Tri-State Bird Rescue.

If we have any bird experts out there, we'd love to hear anything you know about owls.  Post your comments below!  We're all ears!

While We are Thawing....

Well, we aren't just taking a "cat nap" around here while we're thawing...

 We're on the move.... 

and hope to have the greenhouse up and running next week!

These very peculiar looking things are praying mantis nests which we place
between the plants to help eliminate pesky critters we don't want around.

And, here is the first fruit of our lettuce for the season!  Getting hungry? 

While we're waiting for the season if you have any great recipes to help us get ready please post them in the comment section below.
