I got some more out of the greenhouse an placed about the beds. I lost a couple of Hawaiian Papaya plants, Cocoa Tree and Coffee Tree from the winter. Just couldn't keep it warm enough in the greenhouse I reckon. Got all the new plantings watered good. Late yesterday after noon while watering the veggie garden I noticed some beetles on my tators, went an got the shop vac an sucked them up. I really don't want to use chemicals if I don't have to, so will see what happens next. I had read that works somewhere online and thought it made sense. I plugged the end of the vac hose up so they can't crawl out. Hopefully they will die in the tank. Got the compost pile going again, noticed I had several potatoe starts in there so I moved them to the tator bed. They most likely won't make it, but figured why not try. They even had little tators on the roots. They sprang up from some peeling I had thrown in there over the last few weeks. Also some other stuff I didn't fool with I just turned them into the pile. For some reason my flowers bloom about a month later than everyone else around here, my Lady Banks rose is just now starting up. I've had to cover some of the later cabbage seedlings to keep them from getting chewed down. Guess its a rabbit feasting on them. Still have some more planting to do, but oh so close to being finished with that to. I think!!!

Sorry I do not. I had gotten those seeds from a trader a few yrs back and the plants hadn't produced any fruit. It takes a male an female, an now I only have the 1 plant left. Perhaps u can post your request in the seed swap section an will get better results. trudy
