I am not a big fan of brussel sprouts but I would imagine they are better fresh from the garden. Are they hard to grow.

I just ordered some thrornless blackberries and they are suppose to be 3 year canes so thought they would harvest this year. Am I right?

Take care - and again, welcome to the team.

Sunny

BTW - Has the granddaughter made her appearance yet?
How wonderful for you. Do let us know.

Right now I would say I enjoy growing brussel sprouts because that is what I'm enjoying from the garden and my freezer. We also have strawberries that I love turning into yogurt shakes for a good breakfast (although I was dismayed at how many calories I was consuming! I'll have to cut my serving down to half!) Last year we planted Kiowa blackberries and can't wait to see if we get a few this year. We have been adding to our fruit collection for the last couple of years, paw paw and cherry trees, elderberries, blueberries, raspberries, grapes, etc. But mostly we just do the normal, tomatoes, beans, carrots, onions, peppers, etc. So, after talking about it, I'm even more anxious to get the snow off the ground and get started.

My husband pointed out that it's only 6 weeks til baseball season starts so spring is just around the corner.

Welcome Kathy!!! This is a wonderful group. Taking care of our aging parents is very stressful. But you have to take care of yourself first. emoticon

Hi Kathy! My name is Margaret and I live in SW Ohio. No snow on the ground at the moment just cold. I am so ready to start gardening. It is one way I reduce stress. There is just something very calming about working the earth.
I am the wife of one great guy (36 yrs in May), mom to three adult sons and gramma to 4.(2 are step-grandchildren) I am the daycare giver to the youngest grandson who keeps my busy, busy, busy.
I am glad you found us and hope to hear more about you soon. emoticon

Hi, my name is Kathy and we are anxiously awaiting the end of winter up here in the snow belt!! Can't wait to get my fingers in the dirt! I am a Christian, the mother of 5 of the best adult children around, one granddaughter soon to make her appearance, an empty nester (and actually enjoying it!) the wife of a great guy for 31 years, a church secretary and caregiver for my aging in-laws. Very busy, too stressed and really looking for some encouragement to lower my stress levels, lose a few lbs and get to know some more people. Just happened on this site tonight while looking for a way to lower my BP, (never had a problem with it when all the kids were growing up the the in-laws growing old is stressful!!) Looks like I found a great group to join!
