Winter season is upon us. I am home recovering from my new titanium hip. What fun !! Hey the last time I had my hip replaced was 2009 and in 2010 I grew the GPCís best squash. Maybe itís a good luck charm.
I did manage some fun before surgery. Val, Alex and I got out for some deer hunting while Alex came home for the first Saturday of the PA whitetail season. It was a good father son bonding day. Alex took a nice 8 point.
I am trying that winter challenge tomato thing. Not sure how they should be looking but it is a good test run to see if some of my seed would germinate. The trick was to get something to pollinate and it looks like I have few sets. Now I am just going to water , prune, feed a little and see what I get. I wonít be stressing out over them for sure. This is one on my 3.51
And a nice lumpy one on my 3.2 I also have one of my Momate plants that is producing a real stocky plant. It was a later thought so I am looking for some blossoms now. It is sort of nice to not worry about a wood chuck sneaking into the patch or a deer making his dinner out of the plants. Letís hope this winter passes quickly.
