    Hi Bette, long time no hear. You must have a great garden this year 30 plus tomatoes. WOW. We're concentrating on the orchard this year, and trying to figure out where to plant for next year. Theres little soil, and a LOT of rocks! Hope youre well. L.

    Hey Bettie,

    I spent the weekend planting a tangerine tree, a blackberry bush, a blueberry bush, and a lot of asiatic (dwarf) jasmine. I also moved about 100 pieces of flagstone that I'm going to use for a porch. I'm more than a little sore this morning, but I'm really pleased with the progress...
