FRANGO chocolates!!! You just made me drool. We don't get those down here. I would hide them, too. What do you use the eye droppers for, Mary? WONDERFUL package!!

Annie, I can grow peppers, tomatoes and beans until about December 20th. In my location, I can grow snow peas and snap peas all winter. I wouldn't object to moving to Zone 9, though!!!! My favorite tomato, so far, is Cherry Roma. I grow lots of them for salsa, bruschetta, pizzas and capellini pomodoro. I grow tomatoes for fresh eating only. I'm not a very good "canner". I'm currently growing Hawaiian Cherry Tomato and Gardener's Delight as my second crop. I haven't tried them, yet.

May favorite peppers, so far, are Jimmy Nardello, Hungarian Semi-Hot Block and Waialua. Yummy! I've grown Pizza Peppers before and they are really superb if you let them get to the "red ripe" stage. At that stage, they're almost entirely sweet and really delicious raw. I thought Waialua would be the same, but they are spicier and I think better if cooked. Pizza peppers take forever to ripen red, though.

No winners, yet. Sue, I got your email... thank you! You're so kind. Take your time.

Little problem with the laptop here. Glass eyedroppers, that was the first thing I thought of, when the OP mentioned your favorite kitchen gadget. They can be hard to find, but I can get them here. First used one (short version) to feed a baby squirrel, not the current squirrel. In cabin fever season this past Winter by Which All Further Winters Will Be Judged, I finally got around to trying Sharpie Tie Dye. That involves dripping rubbing alcohol over sharpie designs on T-shirt. These needle nose glass eyedroppers are indispensable.

Kim, keep them in the medicine chest or hidden with your sewing scissors, so you can find them, because things will come up. Also, try Sharpie tie dye, like when the kids leave for college. LOL

Tomatoes............................

Sheri-Beautiful picture of you...it is always so nice to see what somebody looks like in the group. Nice seashell collection.

Mary-Please post a picture of your squirrel. I bet he is so cute.

Vina-You sent me a start of the walking onion years ago and I love it.

Great swap boxes everyone. I have not heard from Laura but she should have received her box. I will find the delivery confirmation # and make sure. Has anyone heard anything from her?

Thank you, Shirley, for the compliments on my photo. You are so very kind. I'll email Laura, too.

WONDERFUL SUMMERTIME package, Kim! Thank you for the photo and sharing all the contents, Mary. I loved it.

There is an incredible amount of crops to choose from. You're all such good guessers, though!!! No winners, yet.

I'll give you two hints... This crop is primarily grown in the northern half of the United States (so no oranges, cotton, bananas, rice, artichokes etc.). Also, it's considered a "Specialty Crop".

My first pepper seedling was given to me last August, a Bhut Jolokia. I nurtured it outside, put in a big pot and brought it in for the winter. Maybe put it outside on nice days, but bring it in overnight anytime it might dip below fifty-five. Spent the winter indoors in a south facing window.
I would forget to water it til it drooped, turns out that is what they like. It started flowering in Feb. That encouraged me. It dropped a lot of flowers between Feb and now. That is normal for Bhut Jolokia. Now it is setting fruit.

You can keep them going for fruit (I hear) for four years. Then you can make a pepper bonsai plant.

How about Flax and Safflower? I don't think these have been chosen.

Sheri, the peppers stay outside, in the ground. I do keep them mulched...kind of...LOL. I prune them back in March.
If I am concerned that we might get some frost/or get to cold (in the 30's), I just cover them....maybe, if I think about it. I will lose a pepper plant once in a while. Cold climates obviously can not do this. Cold zones overwinter inside as mentioned earlier by Mary E (cottonwood..)

Happy Monday!! Thunderstorms might be visiting us....I will take a 2 minute downpour....not greedy.....2 minutes of a good rain would be lovely!!

Here's a list of what's been picked:

blueberries
cabbage

Please let me know if I've missed any that have been already picked, thank you!

It looks like no one has guessed any kind of herb today. Jayeanne has guessed lavender, already. Good luck and have fun guessing!

OMG I'm so sorry to stress yall out! I was unexpectedly computerless most of the week, so I didn't have Shirley's address or a way to let anyone know. Apologies all around!

Shirley, now that my computer is back in business I got your box mailed out first thing today and should arrive no later than Thursday. Tracking number 9114 9012 3080 3282 0979 66

My wonderful wonderful Shirley sent a bundle of goodies for summertime!!!

What an amazing box- you REALLY went overboard and I can't wait to see the colorful display it all produces next summer!!! Mike already stole the Lip Balm but I plan to guard those bath salts closely. They may just be the only thing keeping me sane through the early stages of wedding planning. (Current mantra- "I love my mother, I should not kill her... I love my mother, I should not kill her..."

And I love you guys, too!!

Carol- *HUGS* You have all my healing thoughts and best wishes. If you're up to gardening, I still have plans to resend last month's box to you (even though you said not to worry)- just waiting till you're feeling better. The original found its way back home last week!

Sheri- LOVE that picture! I'm a sucker for old pictures :)

So heres the short story behind the wedding stress... Remember me saying we were planning a Memorial Day Weekend, interfaith wedding in Mike's Uncle's apple orchard? Well that entire plan has been scrapped against our wishes. Memorial weekend was chosen because the weeks before meant some of my cousins couldn't attend, and the week after my brother was in a wedding for his friend. We've been forced to scrap that weekend because its Shavout (a Jewish holiday that traditionally forbids marriage that day since it mixes a happy occasion with a sad holiday) and apparently thats a deal breaker for my parents. They are very graciously offering to pay for the whole thing on condition that it be a Jewish wedding ceremony, (so scrap the interfaith part) and we have agreed to a point. Mike and I found a wonderful Rabbi willing to work with us and customize the ceremony for our interfaith wishes, but my mom argues that interfaith, by definition, means it isn't a Jewish ceremony. We are holding our ground on this point. Oh, and because she has straight up forbidden a Shavout wedding (despite a willing Rabbi) we had to move our date back two weeks, missing any possibility of apple blossoms and making the orchard just a bunch of short trees that haven't quite leafed out! No idea what we'll choose instead...

I love my mother, I will not kill her...

EDIT: WE'VE REACHED A COMPROMISE!!! WOOHOO!! And also I bought shoes :)

Laura, no wedding ever goes on without some kind of issue. LOL Believe me, I know as we have had three of our five married so far. Number 4 is getting married next September and the plans are going to start as soon as we rent the venue. Can't do so until September 1st as they won't accept reservations until a year before. After that, anything goes although little issues have already come up.

Tonight my hubby and I are going out for our 9 year anniversary. We haven't been out for a date in 2 years. I am really looking forward to tonight. We're going to go see some live music and dinner. Anyways, I came to check in on y'all and see if an August seed exchange was going on for OBF, but I don't see anything. I'll check back later. Have a wonderful weekend!!!

Since we were talking about how many seed packets from Territorial, I want to mention how much I enjoyed Steve Solomon's book Growing Food When It Matters. Good book, he no longer owns Territorial. It changed the way I look at seeds.

Another good one is Plant Breeding for the Home Gardener, by Joseph Tychonievich. Your gardening will benefit, whether you breed or not, flowers or vegetables.

Read these in the long, cold winter. Mary E.

Good morning ladies! I have sure missed some good swaps! I hope to post mine this afternoon!
I actually forgot I was suppose to do this month! I'll try and think of a simple one for us all!
Been a couple months of heartbreaking family issues, few health issues and lots of stress.
My prayers and thoughts are with Carol and all who are having problems!
Be looking as I will post after while. I had several ideas, but can't decide on one. I have several things have to do this month, so want to make it sweet and simple.
Have a great day and Hugs to all, Melinda

Melinda-Hello and welcome back...we miss you ladies when you are away. Can't wait to see what you have planned for August. Yeah on the pussy willows...The florist here in town has asked that I bring some each year to her shop when they are blooming and she will buy them from me. I need to do that for they are so beautiful. I have a pink one somewhere but can't remember where I planted it. Hopefully it will grow up and bloom and then I can say oh yeah I remember putting it there.

I received my box from Laura and this is what she sent:

Silky soft skin lotion
Unbelievable assortment of tea-yum can't wait to try these
Mahogany Midget Coreopsis ticonia seeds
Moonlight Nasturtium seeds
Edibles Squash Buttercup-seeds
Rosea Verbina-seeds
Tansy Purple-seeds
Italian Flat Leaf Parsley-seeds
Mint-Orange plant-I've been looking for this...thanks

Ladies please be in prayer for Melinda (ilovefarac) I just heard from her Daughter-In-Law that she was taken to the hospital this afternoon. She had chosen the month of August to host so she would like for someone else to host in her place. If you have another month and would like to swap with her that would be ok as well. I do hope she will keep us updated on her situation.

Melinda here's wishing you a speedy recovery and we will be praying for you.

Carol-Thinking of you today also. Hope you are doing well.

August - Melinda
September - Jeanne
October - Annie

T - Toadstool Rain Gage I LOVE this, but USPS managed to break it. I don't have a rain gage and this is super-cute. The USPS is so darn rough with packages. :(

I - Illumination for a pot or? (solar light) My garden toads will love this.
M - Mitt for the oven
E - Everyone needs some plant food spikes. ALWAYS need these! :)

What a wonderful, extremely thoughtful package, Sue. You are so kind. Thank you so much!

Forgot to mention that Sue G. sent me a green spade as well! I'll use it in my potting soil bin. Thank you, Sue!
