I just drove through Sacramento last week as we returned home from vacation in the mountains. It's sure smokey right now with all the wildfires raging!

Hi Jules, thanks for the welcome. I lived in Australia for many years, mostly around Brisbane and have drowned many many lavender plants in my time. I'm here in Sacramento, CA where lavender is well suited to growing so this year I'm going to plant quite a few varieties.

I usually stick to veggies but I think a few flowers would be beautiful and worth the space.

Off to weed pulling hpnow.

Hi Lisa welcome to the team.

The flowers sound great, I love delphiniums and lavender.

It's Winter here in Australia where I am, it's cold and wet but my veggie garden isn't doing too bad

Looking forward to getting to know you.

Peace and long life - Jules

hello fellow gardeners!

i've been on spark this time for a few months now and have been making great progress by not eating any refined sugar including alcohol. Also, I've been eating lots of fresh produce from my backyard garden in the 'burbs.

I am about to clean up some of the beds in preparation for fall planting. The front yard is going to get some perennial flowers like echinacia, hollyhocks, foxgloves, delphiniums and lavender. I picked up some punnets of seedlings today and now think I probably bought them a month too early.

Usually I stick to edibles but this is a semi shady front yard and I had some success with growing in a straw bale this summer so I might get a few more of those to put on the concrete in my backyard where all the good sun is.

I look forward to hearing about all our gardening activities too.

Don't forget that with Spinach and Swiss Chard the more you harvest the more it grows.

Hiya Ashley! Welcome!

I did spinach for the first time this year, planting starter plants in April. I've been harvesting the leaves for weeks now. The plant will start to get tall if you harvest leaves from the outside first, working your way inwards (which I'm told is the way to do it.)

Hi Ashley, welcome to the team.

It's a great feeling to be able to pick something out of the garden for dinner etc. Gardening gets into your blood and you just can't stop once you get started

Also -- I'm SO impressed by your weight loss on your ticker! I'm really praying I can stick with this and see results in a few months.

Oh yum! I'm thinking of harvesting my spinach tomorrow. I have three plants growing in a long, narrow container and one of them is starting to grow rather tall, which I'm thinking is not normal!

I wish we had a farmers' market nearer, but we kind of live on the edge of nowhere.

Welcome to the Team! I know about the gardening high, I was able to start cutting my leaf lettuce for salads this week. So far that is all I can harvest but we have a local farmers' market every Saturday and Wednesday that is almost as good as growing your own.

Sounds like a great garden! I'm having a hip replacement this summer, so all my gardening is raised beds this year.

Hi everyone! :) I'm Ashley. I'm a 24-year-old newlywed in Virginia. I joined SparkPeople this weekend after a couple of weeks of working out with a friend and blindly trying to modify my eating habits! I've gained some weight since getting married last summer and I really just want to be fit and healthy.

Aside from sparking, I'm a nanny for a local family and I work with my local Humane Society and their homeless cats! :)

This is my very first year gardening. I'm partially making it up as I go along, and the rest of it is just endless research on the Internet. I live in a basement apartment so all my plants are in containers! I actually harvested my first carrots today and I kind of have a gardening high about them. They're perfect. I'm also growing broccoli, spinach, bush beans, and the ever-popular tomatoes. I also have herbs and flowers going, and I grew them all from seed (except the tomatoes)!
