Now thats a tomato for a sandwich...one slice one sandwich 

Do not forget the potato chips and mayonnaise!

Make that sandwich with the tomato slice, crushed up potato chips and mayo.  The roll your sleeves up, step up to the kitchen sink with the sandwich and dig in.   I still have another week before the Beefmasters fully ripen but I am drooling at the thought of that first sandwich of the season.

I like a slice of bologna with my chip sandwich.  I have to start digging up my potatoes too.  Big baked potato with butter is next on my list for lunch.  Have a bunch of bell peppers waiting to be picked and stuffed.  Waiting on the go ahead from the wife who will be making them.

I’m drooling over these pics.  Up here in Northern Jersey, I just got my first couple of cherry tomatoes off of the vine this weekend.   I’ve got a bunch of green beefsteak coming in and the peppers seem to be coming in slowly albeit one or two at a time. It’s my first year going at it though so I’ll be happy with what I get. 
 

how often are you guys fertilizing and what are you using, if anything?

I fertilize when I plant, with 10 12 5(?order?) for tomato and vegetable plants.  I make a trench an inch or two deep,  6-8" radius around each plant, or around the base of a mound, put a layer of fertilizer pellets in the trench and poke some of it deeper into the soil with my fingers.  Don't apply directly to the roots.  Let it soak into the soil and the roots grow into it.  That's all I do to fertilize besides adding compost every other year, or every few years, depending how long it takes for a pile to break down. The grass clippings I use as mulch around the plants, and some leaf mulch from the mower that I add in the fall, gets turned in every year.  I've also been using wood chips as a floor in the chicken pen.  They turn that over until it turns into fertilized dirt which I add to the garden.  Once every few years I'll lime it in the fall.
