Wow. That sounds like fun. I didn't put a garden in this year. I moved into my new house last July (but i had tomatoes planted at my "old" house last year).

DH built a couple of beds here in the new house, but we never filled them with soil. We went on vacation on April 19-25. The plan was to fill the beds and plant the tomatoes the weekend of our return. I could not plant them sooner 'cause i did not have anyone to water the plants.

Well 3 days before our vacation, the rattlesnake "incident" happened. DH had been watering some flower plants in the front yard...To his dismay there was a rattlesnake coiled up about a 1-1.5" away from his arm (and the water faucet)...Definitely within striking distance. To make a long story short an pair of neighbors we never met before killed the snake for us.

When I arrived back from holiday, I wanted nothing to do with my garden...Even the container flowers. The tomatoes and other veggies never got planted.

I kind of regret letting the snake freak me out so much...But it did. I will definitely put out some plants next year.

To make a long story short, no I will not have tomatoes to share this year, but I would love to attend Norcatt.

Please let it be the 10th! I'm going to be away the next two weekends and would not make it. Ray, are you not available on the 10th? I would really like to be there this time.

Cheers, Annie

I'm with you, Annie! I'm around on the 10th, but away the next two weekends and I'd love to come this year. At the rate things are growing I may not have many tomatoes to bring but I can bring other pot luck type stuff.
