Well, the bugs are here now! I have to do all my gardening in a net - the Bug Baffler! I look like an alien from some other solar system, but I can spend all day and I'm not driven insane by those black flies.

I noticed in your signature you are on another team - Motivation and Positive Attitude. What's that group about?

And, is there any information here about vitamin supplements? I need to take calcium, Vit. D and B12.
Thanks for your help!

After all these years in TX I still have my accent emoticon and people here do love to hear it-especially my husband. He was born & raised here.

Well, I'm off to mow the lawn & pull weeds. I like puttering around my lawn & little garden.

You know what I don't miss? Those little black gnats/bugs! Lord, how I hated them! I went back home 2 yrs ago for a reunion. It was held outside and the whole time we were swatting those bugs. Other than that I truly miss it-the seasons-especially fall & driving through the White Mountains-snow... emoticon (Now I'm homesick)

I was born in Wakefield MA, and then I moved to Denver. Never had an accent until I moved! Boy, did they love to hear me drop my r's! My next move was to New Orleans (this was back in 93). It was quite a culture shock for a Yankee to be in the deep south! I never adjusted to the weather or bugs, but met a lot of great people and the food was incredible!!!! It's strange, but it was in New Orleans and all the food that I first became a vegetarian! Moved back to Bedford NH, and then to Maine.

(Un)fortuneately emoticon I'm now in TX. I came here from Boston(Ft Devens)-job transfer-about 10 yrs ago.

We've lived in Keene, N.H.(born in Nashua, N.H.) & Hartford CT. And I went to college in Springfield MA before transferring to Boston.

Oh! I'm originally from N.H. We used to go to Old Orchard Beach every summer when I was a kid. Fond memories, too.

I'll be looking forward to seeing those recipes!

I live in central Maine - a rural setting. I was a city girl until we moved here, and never even saw vegetables growing. I made so many mistakes my first garden, it still brings smiles to my face.
Now I make my own compost from leaves, straw, lawn clippings and my soil. That's how I replenish my beds each fall.
We have a short growing season, but we still manage to produce a lot. I do put up tomatoes and salsa, and beans by freezing or canning.
It's wonderful to be eating from your own garden during the winter!
I will be submitting some recipes once work calms down. emoticon

A couple years ago we had a huge garden. We grew eggplant, cukes, tom, watermelon, cantalopes, peppers, spinach. It was great! And there is nothing better than fresh from the garden fruits & veggies.

I've thought about doing it again. We had it for almost 4 yrs. We tried it the 5th yr and everything was a lot smaller. Come to find out we had depleted the minerals & vitamins, etc from the soil. Easy to fix-just till & re-nourish the soil. I might just do that this year. Turn the soil over, replenish it and garden next year.

One thing I did find out, tho, is not to plant cukes and watermelon too close to each other. They take on the flavor of one another. We found that out after everything was planted and it was too late. The cukes had a faint watermelon flavor. Still good, tho.

Last frost date is 5/31? Where do you live?

We have a few raised beds, and we grow lettuce, spinach, radishes, peas, beets, garlic, onions, beans (green and wax), tomatoes, cukes and squash. It is so wonderful to have fresh from the garden veggies! My last frost date is 5/31, so I haven't planted much yet.

Welcome! I think it will be FUN, too! We are going to try to add more recipes to the cookbook; the more the merrier!

Hi Everyone! I've only been on Spark for a couple of days, but I did stumble across this team and feel I'm going to enjoy it very much. I'm a vegan, and generally emoticon eat only things I've made from scratch. I try to buy only organic, but that can be difficult living in a rural area. Can't wait for my garden to start producing!
I did scroll through the cookbook, and found several recipes to try. Looks like fun!
