I couldn't find any more straight neck squash seeds so I bought some plants. That will be better anyway so we can get squash a little quicker. I got an Early Girl tomato plant for fifty cents, so I put it in the ground with all of the other tomato plants. The garden is starting to come along nicely and I will have photos of it later on. Some of the plants I started from seed have not made it; others have done nicely. I think next year I'll just direct sow the seed into the ground, since I have an un-named tomato plant that is so healthy! I love all of the different ways to garden! Some ways are good for some plants; and other methods are better for other plants. I'm learning as I go!
As I stated in the last post, I had some strawberries to deal with. Out of one basket, I made ten half-pints of strawberry jam. Plus, I gave some strawberries to my Mom for eating. The other basket I made three and a half quarts of strawberry pie filling. I don't know if I'll go back and pick more; it's up to Aldi. Well, I hope ya'll have a great weekend and a wonderful Mother's Day! Blessings from Bama!

|The jam is in the background. I just had to get a photo of the homemade pimiento cheese I made for a baby shower. It tasted so delicious!|

|Our friend brought his tractor over to move the debris and dirt and smooth out the spot for the pool.|
|It has since been roped off for dirt to be brought in for leveling.|
