    Nagk��ta Strand kiddies pool


    Medicinal Thermal Pool The water temp is usually
    around +37 in the pool. It fills up with people and
    usually the older citizens can be found wallowing in
    the pool like a herd of hippos! All the minerals in the
    water make it very healthy! I had my first dip last year
    on May 14th, and boy once your in, it's like lying
    in the bath relaxing after a long day.
    You just don't wanna get out!

    Tomatoes

    My toms

    Great for nutrition and they don't make
    you fat. I cook them and make tomatoe
    juice for the winter.Also great for a fresh
    salad or bung them in the wok with
    other veg for a side dish.

    Tomato, is today the most popular garden vegetables. For many years, however, tomatoes (then called "love apples") were considered poisonous and were grown solely for their ornamental value. Tomatoes are usually easy to grow and a few plants provide an adequate harvest for most families. The quality of fruit picked in the garden when fully ripe far surpasses anything available on the market, even in season. The tomato plant is a tender, warm-season perennial that is grown as an annual in summer gardens all over the continental Europe and the United States. Spring and fall freezes limit the outdoor growing season.

    Recommended Varieties

    Hundreds of varieties of tomatoes are now available for the home gardener. They range widely in size, shape, color, plant type, disease resistance and season of maturity. Catalogs, garden centers and greenhouses offer a large selection of tomato varieties and choosing the best one or two varieties can be extremely difficult. Evaluate your needs, then choose the varieties best suited to your intended use and method of culture.

    Eggplant (part2)

    by budapest8 Written May 1, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness


    When to Plant

    Eggplant is best started from transplants. Select plants in cell packs or individual containers. It is important to get the plants off to a proper start. Do not plant too early. Transplant after the soil has warmed and the danger of frost has passed. Eggplants are more susceptible than tomato plants to injury from low temperatures and do not grow until temperatures warm.

    Spacing & Depth

    Space plants 18 to 24 inches apart in the row, or even closer for small fruited types. Three to six plants are usually sufficient for most families unless eggplant is a favorite vegetable, eaten often. Allow 30 to 36 inches between rows or space plants 24 inches apart in all directions in raised beds.

    Care

    Use starter fertilizer for transplanting. Side-dress nitrogen fertilizer when the plants are half grown and again immediately after harvest of the first fruits. Given sufficient moisture and fertility, eggplant thrives in the heat of summer. The plants tolerate dry weather after they are well established but should be irrigated during extended dry periods for continued peak production.

    Harvesting

    Harvest the fruits when they are 6 to 8 inches long and still glossy. Use a knife or pruning shears rather than breaking or twisting the stems. Many eggplant varieties have small prickly thorns on the stem and calyx, so exercise caution or wear gloves when harvesting. Leave the large (usually green) calyx attached to the fruit.

    When the fruits become dull or brown, they are too mature for culinary use and should be cut off and discarded. Overmature fruits are spongy and seedy and may be bitter. Even properly harvested fruits do not store well and should be eaten soon after they are harvested. Large, vigorous plants can yield as many as four to six fruits at the peak of the season.

    Eggplant


    Eggplant is a cold-sensitive vegetable that requires a long warm season for best yields. The culture of eggplant is similar to that of bell pepper, with transplants being set in the garden after all danger of frost is past. Eggplants are slightly larger plants than peppers and are spaced slightly farther apart. Eggplant requires careful attention for a good harvest. Small-fruited, exotic-colored and ornamental varieties can be grown in containers and used for decorations.

    Recommended Varieties

    Large Oval Fruit

    Dusky (60 days to harvest, good size, early production)

    Epic (64 days, tear-drop shaped)

    Black Bell (68 days, round to oval, productive)

    Black Magic (72 days)

    Classic (76 days, elongated oval, high quality)

    Black Beauty (OP-80 days)

    Burpee Hybrid (80 days)

    Ghostbuster (80 days; white, slightly sweeter than purple types; 6 to 7 inch oval).

    Elongated Fruit

    Ichiban (70 days)

    Slim Jim (OP-70 days; lavender, turning purple when peanut-sized; good in pots)

    Little Fingers (OP-68 days; 6 to 8 inch, long, slim fruit in clusters).

    Ornamental Fruit

    Easter Egg (52 days; small white, egg-sized, shaped, turning yellow at maturity; edible ornamental)

    Tomatoes

    by budapest8 Updated May 1, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness



    Tomato plants fall into one of two types that affect ultimate plant height and cultural requirements. Tomatoes are determinate if they eventually form a flower cluster at the terminal growing point, causing the plant to stop growing in height. Plants that never set terminal flower clusters, but only lateral ones and continue indefinitely to grow taller are called indeterminate. Older varieties are almost all indeterminate. These can be counted upon to produce abundant foliage and to ripen flavorful fruit. They may, however be extremely late in maturing. The first determinate varieties developed had real problems with inadequate foliage cover and taste, but they ripened very early. Newer determinates produce better foliage, may grow taller and ripen fruit of similar quality to modern indeterminate varieties. They still tend to ripen their fruit over a shorter period of time, so successive plantings may be desirable with determinates to keep the harvest coming through the entire season. Determinate vines are easier to control and support during the growing season. Some of the extreme dwarf types are determinate as well as dwarf, producing some truly tiny mature plants.

    Brussel Sprouts

    Rows of Brussel Sprouts
    2 more images


    A good veg to grow in the winter as
    they don't freeze when it gets below
    zero. I use the left over stems for the rabbits.

    Brussels sprouts, is a hardy, slow-growing,
    long-season vegetable belonging to the cabbage family.
    In the proper season of the year, it can be grown with fair
    success in most areas of the country. In mild areas,
    or where there is deep snow cover, the sprouts may overwinter.

    The "sprouts" (small heads that resemble miniature cabbages)
    are produced in the leaf axils, starting at the base of the stem and
    working upward. Sprouts improve in quality and grow best during
    cool or even lightly frosty weather. Brussels sprouts require a long
    growing period, though newer hybrids have greatly reduced this
    requirement. In all but the most northern states, summers are
    usually too warm for completely satisfactory production from
    spring plantings. Plants set out in late spring to early summer
    grow satisfactorily and mature high-quality sprouts when the fall
    weather begins to cool.

    Well these chicks are grown up.
    I have 3 chickens and get a good
    15 to 20 eggs a week,
    depending on how many bugs
    and snails they find in the garden.

    NEWSFLASH May 1st 2006
    I gave 1 chicken away to my
    next door neighbour, so now
    there are 2!

    I usually get about enough
    to distill about 30 litres of
    "Palinka"(Plum snapps)
    every winter, that's
    with a neighbours plums thrown in to.
    A few kilos of sugar and distilled twice.
    Turns out at about 60% alcohol.

    My own private jungle


    Nothing like
    breaking a few corn
    on the cobs off
    and popping
    them into a large pot
    of salted water,
    then after 10 mins
    spread some butter on them
    and a touch of sour
    cream and garlic.
    .YUMMY!

    Great chance for a "knees up"
