It's a Jungle Out There

Please visit and like my new facebook page Georgia Home Garden.

We got rain three days last week. This has been great for the garden and my grass, but it has also been great for the weeds. The area where I pulled my corn a few weeks ago is overrun with weeds now. The area is approximately 100 square feet and just the thought of having to go clean it all makes me sweat.

I need to do something soon. I had thought of completely replanting with Silver Queen corn, but I think I am going to plant some corn, some peas, and maybe even some peppers and tomatoes. I know I have to get some plants from the nursery for the peppers and tomatoes, but I hope there is still time.

As a side note, I don't even like tomatoes, but I do love certain kinds of salsa. I particularly like the kind found in most Mexican restaurants around here. It is very fine, and not chunky at all. I have had this idea in my head for the last few weeks of making my own salsa from fresh tomatoes. We will see, but first I most tackle the jungle.

Sorry about the deletion my first post came out garbled.

I know just what you mean about the jungle. Right now my main vegetable area is a jungle as well. Hopefully I will be able to do some taming this week. I'm not to fond of tomatoes either. Have you tried the black tomatoes? I did and am not hooked on 'Black Cherry' and 'Black Sea Man'.

No, I have never tried black tomatoes. I hope to find some tomato plants at the nursery tomorrow. I worked on clearing the area tonight. I still have a little more work to do on it. I hate the weeds, but I am thankful we are getting plenty of rain now.

I am making salsa right now and canning it. Mine is very similar to the resturaunt kind. I'd be gald to share the recipe if you'd like it.

Cindy, I will surely take you up on that offer. I don't want to jinx myself and ask for the recipe now, but if I get a good batch of tomatoes I will get it from you.
