rainy morning here...last night the air was so saturated looked like fog I thought we were having hail because the rain came down and was so heavy the raindrops looked like they were half dollar-size raindrops
Our Meteorologist Paul Douglas says this has been the wettest (Jan-May) on record for 144 years!
It is a great day to prep meals to serve when the sun and heat return.
It is a great day to make lists of things to be done.
It is a great day to organize an area that needs it.
It is a great day to read a book.
A wonderful day to visit the Conservatory or other indoor g

Good Morning Everyone! The forecast is for more Thunderstorms today so I won't be in the gardens and that gives me more time to working in our home! The rain has cooled everything down and the nice fresh air is wonderful! Have a great day! puddle jumping is an option emoticon

How exciting.. Gave me a couple of ideas for my garden. I would like to include leeks, kale and chard. I have limited space, but I will make do.

I have several varieties of Heirloom tomatoes, peppers, lettuces, spinach, green beans, peas pods, and celery. Can't think of what else right now (oh, asparagus and rhubarb). It is still too early to plant a garden in our area (have the seeds started inside though) but I have some patio pots planted (just keep covering on cold nights). The main one is my salad bowl planter (idea from a fellow gardener). I just harvested my first salad last night. Yummy!

I have never grown berries of any kind before so would be interested in learning more about that. I have two raspberry plants right now to plant. Our neighbor has some growing so may just go and pick his brain on the best way to proceed with them.

Good luck and please report your progress.

p.s... in Iowa we have Seed Savers Exchange near Decorah, Iowa which is dedicated to preserving and selling heirloom plants and seeds. Cool thing about heirloom plants is that if you save the seeds you don't have to buy again. www.seedsavers.org

I would like to grow everything from organic seed, as much heirloom as I can. There is a company (small farm) here called Vicki's Veggies that sells heirloom seeds and plants. She specializes in tomatoes and lettuce, but also carries other seed. www.vickisveggies.com/Home.html

So carrots, beets, leeks, onions, potatoes, tomatoes, squash, raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, dill, parsley, kale, spinach, chard, and lettuce for now. :D

Hi, welcome to the team.
Good luck with your large garden. I have discovered that what ever size veggie garden I have I have always filled it and wished for room to plant at least one more thing.

Yeah! I am excited for you. I like the idea of keeping notes. I learned that the hard way.

What are you planning on growing? Using Heirloom seeds? My best to you on this fun project. Julia

Sounds lovely!!! Don't forget to keep notes so you can remind yourself next year what worked where etc. Plus it helps in crop rotations. Wishing you the very best, let us know how it goes etc.

No foods with high fructose corn syrup, sugar, rice syrup, corn syrup, fructose, sucrose etc. in the first three ingredients.

No foods that have more than 3 ingredients that I can not pronounce.

If an item has more than 10 ingredients it is too processed, I will not eat or buy the item.

Hi everyone.

I have grown a very small organic garden for four years, but this summer I will have my first REAL large vegetable garden and I'm very excited.

Glad to have found this spark team!

I live in eastern Ontario, Canada.
