Last year, we grew tomatoes- bad year for them, okra- pretty good crop, cukes & eggplant- excellent crop, peppers- horrible year and carrots- none grew.
This year, I'm only planting 2 tomatoes- one cherry and one standard sized. I'm definitely planting Japanese eggplant & cukes again, as we loved that! What else should I plant? Does anyone know what else grows really well in Georgia- zone 7b?

Here are my favorites from tonight:
Yeah...that's it. I was really disappointed. I'm hoping they can all get well and next week will be better. As of now, I'm rooting for the boys.
Earlier in the month, Tony Campolo was on The Colbert Report (my favorite show!) He was just so incredible- it's a must see. I cannot wait to read his book, Red Letter Christians. It is so refreshing to see someone who is an evangelical Christian, who is a liberal democrat- who believes in all human rights- including gay marriage. Plus, he played right along with Colbert's humor and I like that. :)
I really want you to watch the video, but if you don't, here are some great clips from the transcript:
:: the people who believe this the red-letters of the bible, the words of jesus. we are totally committed to it which means we're in to compassion for the poor, first and foremost. compassion to the poor
Upon confronted with gay marriage, Tony states that marriage is in trouble in America because of heterosexual divorces.
:: all they want is the same privileges, good or bad, that the rest of us enjoy. don't get me wrong. i am not affirming a particular lifestyle. i am, in fact, standing up for all the rights andprivileges that all americans should enjoy.
:: we want justice for our gay brothers and lesbian sisters because we think that god loves them intensely. he wants good for them.
Wow- I just love that- especially coming from someone as respected as Tony Campolo. It's about human rights, people! Who are we to judge? We, as Christians, do so much of that already.

Instead of watching the Super Bowl, the Sisterchicks and I went to Ladies Night Out at The Melting Pot. (there are a lot of caps in that last sentence!)
Not only did we have a blast, but Amanda gave us all a cool present. Let me start out by saying that one of my chicks, Mandi, is due to have her second baby in Sept. Amanda gives us a Cadbury egg with a note attached that says, "Not to be outdone, Amanda is expecting a chickie in October!" How exciting! Two sisterchicks pregnant at the same time! Now all we need is a dual wedding for Kristen and Staci!
Here's Amanda with her eggciting news!
How yummy does this look? We had four plates of this with two chocolate fondue dips for 6 of us! I felt like I was back on my cruise!
So, it's been a while since I last posted, so I have a lot to add. First post is a contest at Oh Amanda! The contest is for a book, and oh, how I love to read! I have to post a pic of me with my blog. Well, it didn't come out very good as you can see below. I'm at home without dh so I have no one to take the pic, plus it's dark out so the flash is really bright on me. Whatever- here goes nothing!
