artsyville our first garden! I'm so proud of it. I planted everything in the wrong place and it has still found a way to survive. so far it has given us one alarmingly oversized zucchini, two sweet and pathetic little red peppers, more jalapeños than I can count and an explosive crop of cherry tomatoes that little critters like to snack on during the night. 5d
  •   mmbelandria Great!!! Your cherry tomatoes are a cutie 5d
  •   kittyfaa 5d
  •   mnwritergirrl Lovely! 5d
  •   bagelsandcrawfish Cover your cherry tomatoes with netting or fence them...we had similar situation last summer, got proactive this year and have had an overload this summer! And be sure to read "The $64 Tomato"... Very entertaining! 5d
  •   stuewer This made me chuckle! "Alarmingly oversized zucchini"!! Home grown zucchini are no joke!! 5d
  •   domesticscribbles I didn't know zucchini weren't supposed to be the size of baseball bats until I was in college. My mom had trouble with cucumber bugs, so she made pickles from zucchini. ;) 4d
  •   cindy_qc i don't mind little critters snacking on our tomatoes, but they should eat the whole thing! 4d
  •   avidreadertwo We love out garden and it was very productive! Remember we live in NJ, The Garden State!!!!! 4d

artsyville finally catching up from last week...we made a pit stop in colonial Williamsburg on the way home :) 2w
  •   biglabs1 You are practically in my backyard!!! 2w
  •   biglabs1 Try to stop at Extraordinary Cupcakes on Richmond Rd & you can't beat Berret's SEAFOOD just off DoG St at the William & Mary end! Celebrations is my favorite "souvenir" shop there! 2w
  •   artsyville @adeeswanson @paper_pirate it is so pretty! we used to visit every year when I was growing up. 2w
  •   artsyville @yogiknitgirl @biglabs1 you live in a beautiful part of the country! hey -- can you tell me what those candy cane striped gates are for on the I64 exits? 2w
  •   artsyville @biglabs1 we are already back -- I am just catching up on my posts this week! To my retrospective horror, I missed the cupcake shop! 2w
  •   biglabs1 Oh no, well, gives reason for a return trip one day! 2w
  •   biglabs1 The gates are hurricane evacuation & for dignitaries. With hurricanes evacuation all lanes become westbound. When the Presidential motorcade comes through all on ramps to the Interstate are closed off. 2w
  •   adeeswanson The gates are in case of evacuation from a hurricane. They can. Convert all the lanes on both sides to one direction. Because it's a peninsula there are no alternate routes if everyone was asked to leave. 2w
