I just posted this picture on Facebook but it belongs here more. When Sassy has to go out and she figures nobody is paying attention to her she will sit in front of the TV and give that Aussie stare. :) She isn't always the perfect dog but she is about as good as they get.

We potted up a few of the plants that aren't quite read to go into the garden. We did get all of the tomatoes in except for the cherry tomatoes that go in another bed. We put in 30 tomato plants in the one bed and they are quite a variety of 7 different types.

Teresa took cuttings from some of our house plants to give as gifts for Mother's Day to friends.

We put away all of the row covers last week but the temperature for the next couple of days is lower than what was forecast a few days ago so we broke them back out and covered all of the warm weather plants in the garden beds. When we put in our garden beds we had planned on building a hoop house for the biggest bed but using low plastic tunnels and garden blankets have let us grow what we wanted just about all fall and winter. We have had a green house and in the hottest months they are about useless so the portable covers work for us.

The first picture is where we have cucumbers planted. They are only a few inches high so a blanket works for them. The tomatoes are in the next bed and we are using low plastic tunnels covered by a garden blanket. Next is a bed with onions and radishes while next to that is a bed of lettuce that needs to be thinned out. The Sugar Snap pears are starting to flower.

The last bed is Asparagus and we have been getting right at a pound every day and a half. The crowns on these plants are a little over 10 years old and we brought them with us from our garden in South Carolina. If we get a frost it will slow them down but they bounce back pretty fast.

Everything turned out great. We did call the neighbors and they came down to try it out. The Baby Back Ribs were among the best that we have done with a real nice smoke ring from cherry wood.
