Mid December. Just a few 'Juliet' plants were plant that early. Each is now about four feet tall. Am planting three or four and will give a fifth to a friend.

Our northern jealousy is not very becoming :cry:
My straight neck plants have the first set of leaves, tomatos were planted yesterday, and the zuchini seed isn't in the ground.
Can I come to dinner at your house? :P :wink:

Oh man! I thought I was ahead of everyone (Arizona).
I've got little green tomatoes and peppers, but nothing like what you've got going.
I'll be hitting you up for tips next year. :D
