I've cleared out all my backyard beds - about 600 square feet - and am ready to plant the first one with some Fall veggies. I'll be planting Brussels Sprouts, Cabbage and Swiss Chard for the first time!

I have to pick some of my yellow tomatoes (and a red one!) today! I will have a good crop this year. My pepper plants seemed to have had their tops knocked off when we had the bad weather a while ago as I only have a few of them growing now.

My parsley seems to be coming up - getting excited. We've had alot of rain, not torrential but regular - one of my basil plants doesn't seem to like it - it looks like it's dying. But the pepper and ginger are going fine. Bought some more herb seeds. Will try again. I actually weeded my little plot yesterday.

I picked my first potatoes and my first purple beans of the season!

An excuse is just a challenge to figure out how to do something different.

Not a peep out of those seeds. If I don't see a sprout by Sunday (3 weeks) I am dumping them and getting me some more seeds. The weather has been rainy and sunny - this should be ideal for those seeds. Of course my basil is growing like wildfire as well as the peppers, ginger and thyme. I guess this situation reflects life - the same soil can produce different results.

Many times I have trouble with seeds. I usually just buy the bedding plants and have better luck. But don't give up quite yet, some seeds take longer to sprout.

It's been a week, Sunday will make 2 and the seedlings haven't even sprouted. Not a one out of like 4 herbs I planted. I'm so mad emoticon . The basil is strong as ever, the little runt died. But the other 3 plants are growing. The peppers are growing and I planted a piece of thyme and it seems to be catching. Oh, yea the ginger is growing. I guess I should be emoticon but focusing on the failures instead of the success. Okay I reverse that attitude and try again.

Did a bit of gardening yesterday = went to the garden store and bought some pots for my indoor garden. Observed my basil plants growing so tall. There is a little runt plant and I packed the soil around it so it could be strong and push on up. Read the notes I made on my plants. I can get use to this gardening - emoticon

I don't think you can ever over plant as long as you have the energy to keep up with it! LOL
If you grow more then you can eat just share with the neighbors!!

Hi all!

This year is my first 'big garden' and I'm sure I have overplanted!

I have about a 8 x 12' section.

I have 1 - zucchini, 3 - tomatoes, 3 - broccoli, 2- cucumber and 2 - pepper plants I purchased started.

I have planted seeds for radish, beets, snap peas, butter nut squash, butter cup squash, chard and more zucchinni. and one lone onion.

So excited to see the seedlings come up. 6 peopods have started, I have grown them once before and loved fresh pea pods, plus they have a pretty flower too!

flower wise, I had purchased a bunch of lilies from a sale and with it I got colombine and red huskers. I almost pulled them but then stopped. took pictures and asked friends. they all thought the red husker was a weed. Went to the guys house I got the lilies from and he told me what they were and they are now in bloom and very pretty! My friend also wants some seeds of my 'weed'.

I also had wild strawberries show up in our rocks. i'm letting them be now, but will probably not let them take root next year.

So sorry about your tomatoes! I bet they will still grow, just may have wait a while longer for the tomatoes.
I was worried about my potted plants on the deck when we had a bit of pea size hail and was about to run out and put up my deck umbrella to cover them!! LOL But then it stopped.

My tomato plants have had their heads knocked off by the hail storm we had a couple of nights ago. I do still have a baby tomato formed! My peppers are doing well.

Looks like this topic has slowed down a lot.
Here is what I have been doing this spring. It has been two years since I have done anything in my yard since DH has been sick. (he is now in a care home).
So this spring I wanted to grow some veggies again.
This is what I did on my upstairs back deck.......

In fact I was surprise this morning to see my first tomato!!!

Oh my, we are still in Tucson, AZ (we're here every winter) so I'm not sure what's "blooming" at home right now. My neighbor tells me the dogwood trees are in full bloom but she hadn't mentioned any of my Spring bulbs.....we fly home on the 14th, guess I'll see then!

I could not resist it was so unusual. Very pretty.
I just posted my Tuesday blooms they are of some of the different Dahlias I have growing on the west side of our home.

That all sounds great!! You are way ahead of my garden. All I have is Asparagus to eat so far!! LOL Would love to see the pictures!
That would be so much fun to grow your own bananas!!! Keep us updated on that adventure!!

Hi,

Well my herb garden is doing great, except for one dill plant, it seems the snails got to them. My water garden is starting to bloom. I have to California Natives in them that are starting to flower and my banana plant has one leaf. Woohoo!! It's suppose to get real bananas, I wonder if it will? We shall see!!! The rest of my yard is doing pretty good! I'll have to post pictures soon. I just came in from watering my serrano pepper plant and it got 5 flowers. It's a mild pepper for salsa. Now to get some tomatoes in the garden!

I went out and took photos of some of my flowers this week-end. I had my very first EVER calla lily bloom, my first EVER holly hocks bloom, and lots of beautiful new blooms on my wave petunias. I was so happy with my yard this week-end! I hope you are all having as much fun with your yards/gardens as I am this year.

Oh yeah, for dinner Saturday evening we had a salad with lettuce, spinach and cucumbers from my garden. It was delicious!

Mom's school is having their plant sale. She brought home several hanging baskets. Petunias, scabiosa, lantana, and a few others. Tomorrow she's bringing home herbs. I love fresh thyme!

Stay calm and carry on.

After 3 years in a row of surgeries that prevented me from gardening I finally get to go outside and enjoy my gardens. They need a LOT of work, pruning, dividing and the ever present weeding. You can just imagine how that has gotten away from me. The apricots and forsythias have just finished blooming; the cherry trees are in bloom as are the daffodils, tulips and rhododendrons.The lilacs should burst forth anyday now. My creeping phlox is starting to bloom too! Anyone want to come and join me in the gardens?

Love the photo, Jo.

I have an orchid which bloomed (for the first time in two years) this morning. I needed to see a bloom of some kind. I will post a photo.

Winter is definitely reluctant to give way to Spring.

Have a good day, stay in and stay warm. Sunny days can't be too far off.

To Add a Photo on the Team Photos.....

You need your photo in a file on your computer.
Then go to the Main Page of the Team.
Click on the Photos tab on the main team page.
At the bottom in red it will say "Click here to Add a Photo".
Click on that. On this page click on the "Browse" button and find your photo on your computer then click okay.
Add a "Caption" if you want.
Click "Add Photo".

This should do it!!
Have fun!! Would love to see everyone's photos!!

Sorry I haven't figured out to add photos - but this afternoon I cut back the liriope and the heleborous. The little white ones are so lovely and have been blooming all week/ The pink ones are just opening up. I love them and would add more but I have a very, tiny garden. The air and sun were perfect; just my barky dogs were out of sync. Tomorrow's to be lovely also. emoticon
