I have found rhubarb easy to grow almost anywhere. I have mine in the flower garden. The leaves are big and huge, look decorative and it is easy to get when I want some to eat.

Our garden this year didn't do well at well. I have no idea why. Last year it just flourished. Maybe I will try growing Rhubarb someday.

not really; sometimes it can be sour so you can eat it raw dipped in sugar. It does take some time to get established in your garden.

This is the first week it warmed up enough to even think about gardening. The rhubarb is growing like nobody's business. We planted asparagus last year, so far have not seen any sprouts. Hopefully we will be able to get the rest of the garden planted.

We have Sunflowers that have bloomed already. One of our Tomato plants didn't make it. First time that happened. We replaced it, and it looks good so far.

I am enjoying my yard and my flowers not that it is nicer weather. I have a bunny rabbit in my back yard and I enjoy watching him hop around. I planted hostas last year and they are doing very well. I hope everyone has a good evening and I look forward to getting to know all of you. allie emoticon

It is going to be a beautiful day today. Am going to the grocery store with hubby sometime today. Also going to walk around in my yard. I really enjoy that. Will be glad when I can do some of the things that I want to do soon. I go back to the doctor tomorrow.

I agree about cast iron holding the heat. I think food just tastes better when cooked in cast iron.

Sorry to hear about the back surgery Roses17. Take care of yourself!

Home made syrup sounds yummy!! How lucky you are to make that!! We can different things through out the summer but nothing as fun as syrup.

We are exclusively cast iron cookers -- anyone else??

Just checking in too see how you all are doing. Spring is slow in coming which is a good thing. The neighbor is out getting his maple syrup bags hung in the woods. The sun is out but cool weather. Spring Cleaning the house. Stretching my legs on the road. Until later then.

Got the news Friday that I have a ruptured disc again for the third time. Ended up losing my job as I just couldn't do it. They were sad to see me go as I had made a lot of friends there. I really enjoyed that job. It was the first job I ever had that I was excited to go to work.

It's a glorious day! emoticon emoticon Most of the week should be in the mid to upper 60's. I won't mind a dip in temp at the end of the week. It will be a break from cleaning up outside.

The paper had announcements of gardening classes over the next few months. I want to learn all I can about xeriscape and local plants. No big box store for this lady! Colorado dessert/plains natives.

Of course the exception is the small raised garden for veg and my first attempt at vertical gardening.

The sun is shining and the promise to reach 40 degrees today. We been holding under zero for some time. With a little peek-a-boo on temps the last few weeks. We all are eager to see spring to come. Yet fingers crossed its a slow spring thaw so flooding isn't the new jig in town.
Took the dog for a short walk. Trying to get more spring cleaning done in the house as well.

I was putting out a feeder station when I looked up and found a chickadee within arms reach watching me. I stood really still and let some of the other birds come up to me. This was very exciting. My roses came in today. Now I have to get my back straightened out so I can set them out. In a lot of pain today.

Hope March turns into a good month for you and the pain ceases.

A warm morning but storms expected later. I redid my bathroom counter yesterday thinking I'd be able to open windows for a few days. The fumes are still potent. Half day is better than none!

In town today it seemed so nice. The thermometer read cool, but it felt warm to us. Warm enough to go to the flea market while we waited for hubby's glasses to be ready. We got there and WHAM! The wind picked up and it was downright cold!

I live near St. Louis and we had a high of 50 today. My 3 year old and I spent a few hours in the yard picking up sticks and he was 'mowing". It was nice to feel the sun and not have any SNOW in the yard! I noticed I have tulips, lillies and hyacinths all coming up! YEAH! But I am afraid it's too soon.

STAY AWAY COLD WEATHER. I am ready for spring!!

Happy Weekend!

It's a cold start to this Saturday - 12 degrees. Much better than the negative numbers we've been waking up to.

I plan to start day one all over again today. While in the Carolinas I went nuts on indulgences and not even walking much. Or sleeping for that matter. I cannot believe it is possible to gain 5# in one week, but that's what the scale says. I'm trying hard to have a positive attitude.

Is anyone watching the Olympics? There was so much boring talk last night we just turned the channel.

Thank you for all you have contributed over the years. (yes years!! can you believe it!!) It should be our ultimate goal, to get back to life and to get back to living, and Spark is a way to help us get to that point. I wish you all the best with wherever your journey takes you now :)

Good morning everyone,

It has been a while since I have posted and a while since I have exercised and done many things I need to do to achieve my weight loss goals. I have thought this through for some time and have made the decision to have a Spark break for a year. There is much happening in my life that needs my urgent attention.

I also find that when I am on the computer catching up with tracking, which I find a little time consuming, I am not doing. I only have a few hours per day and find that will be getting less since I have taken on extra work. Weight loss is not my major goal at the moment. Therefore I am resigning as a co-leader, leaving the team and setting my spark page to off line.

I wish to thank you all for your support, encouragement and friendship. Spark People is a great community; their wealth of information, way of doing things, support and so on. It is through Spark People that I have found many friends and learnt much about Americans. I wish you all well and that you achieve success in reaching your goals.

Once again thank you all
Enjoy your night or day
Sandra

Yes, I'm having a much better week, although I had to increase the anti-depressant dosage. I was starting to feel angry at everyone and everything for the past month, and after talking to My Gal and my doctor, we've agreed to increase the dosage for a little while, to see if it helps. On the flip side, since I'm taking Zyban as the anti-depressant, cigarettes are starting to taste yucky. That's a good thing. :-D

We've had frost warnings since September, and I have yet to turn off the outdoor tap and drain the garden hose. I need either clones, robots or more people to get it all done! ;-)

Also, My Gal & I need to fix the stove pipe on the wood stove in the garage. It leaks, and now the pipe is rusted right through, and the stove is starting to show similar signs. Not quite sure what we're doing yet, I suspect that's a trip to Home Depot or Canadian Tire to get information and the hardware we will need. That will be happening most likely this weekend. My Gal isn't happy that she can't start a fire in the garage, so I won't argue. :-D

Jo I hope you are having a better week emoticon It is a difficult thing sometimes. I always get down around Thanksgiving, the anniversary of my mother's passing, and that was over 30 years ago... but like you, it helps to remember them but then to try to stay busy.

It is a Brrrrrrrrr morning!! Frost warning tonight! Fall just never lasts long enough!!

So the first anniversary of My Guy's passing was this past weekend, and it was a mix of happy and sad memories. Also, I finished pulling the carrots and onions from the box gardens, and after a little research, and some info from a local farmer, garlic is going in over the winter. So this weekend was getting the area ready for the garlic and the hanging strawberry plants, and I am SORE! I worked hard on Friday, Saturday and yesterday, and I still have sore muscles! It was good work, though, and it helped me to work through some of the thoughts I've had while grieving for my husband.

So sorry Jo. I can only imagine how difficult it must be. I pray for you to find the strength and courage that you need to face each new day.

As for garlic, I dont have much experience. I planted some, did not harvest it, and it just came back again the following year. Seems like you are suppose to plant it in the fall, so it came back, but then I didnt get it out of the garden, and it just came back again. :)

Hi everyone,

It's been a rough few weeks, and I still have a few more to go to get through My Guy's anniversary of his passing. Some days are rough, to the point that I can't get outside the house to get any yard work done. Yesterday was one of those days.

Today is better, and I'm hoping to get some yard work done after work. Garden is all harvested, except for onions & carrots. I'm not sure how the garlic is doing, though. Does anyone have any good links to growing garlic? I'd like to dig them up and put them in a planter instead of the box garden, so I can bring them inside, if need be. The box gardens have to come out before the SN** starts (yes, it's still a bad word at this time of year :-) ), so I can't keep them where they are. I could google it, but if someone here has a link that they really like for growing veggies, garlic especially right now, I would really appreciate it.

Jo

Hi all, well my weekend was spent with shopping, especially for grand children's birthdays, and catching up with family I haven't seen in a long time. We also had perfect weather for it. Getting into our BBQ weather time. DH mowed the lawn on the weekend as well and I just love the smell of fresh mowed grass in spring time. Just the usual planned for the week - work, but its enjoyable.

Autumn is also a great time of the year, enjoy your week emoticon

I forage for edible weeds, dehydrate them, grind them into a powder and add them to other nutritional greens. My gardening takes me deep into fields, but the end product is so worth the effort.

Hi everyone,

Did you know that gardening with a knee that's still trying to heal is a very bad idea? Yeah, found that out the hard way this past weekend. I hurt my knee 2 Saturdays ago, and I'm not out of the woods yet. This past Saturday, My Gal & I went through most of the garden, leaving only onions, carrots & hanging tomato plants. We harvested everything else, and even as careful as I was, I woke up Sunday morning with not only the knee swollen, but the whole calf/shin too. I had meant to get back in there on Sunday to pick the hanging tomatoes, but my leg wouldn't let me, and I was propped up most of the day.

On the flip side, it gave me a chance to peel, core and slice up the cukes for the Lady Ashburn pickles. They still need to be chopped, but I got the bulk of the work done. The A/C unit in the kitchen has to come out tonight, they're calling for frost again, and close to 0C, so the tomatoes absolutely have to come in tonight.

I spent a little time looking around the back yard yesterday, noticing how much it has changed since My Guy passed away almost a year ago now. Some trees have been cut down, the back yard has the garden, and all the trails haven't been tended to this year at all. It made me a little sad, but there's no going back to how things were before last October. There are more changes coming this week and next, too, since my houseguest (a friend) has been down on his luck for jobs and needed a place to stay for a few months. He's been living with us since early August, and since he doesn't drive and city buses don't come out this way, he needs to find in-city living accommodations soon, or he'll go stir-crazy in the country.

How is everyone else doing?

Jo

We're 95 degrees, so most of our garden is still going. The Sunflowers have gone to seed for the most part, and the Finches are having a feast.

Our garden is almost done for the season. Most cukes are picked, the string beans and snow peas are barely blooming now, the sweet peppers are all picked, and the strawberries will have to be put in the ground & covered up soon. The hanging tomato plants will be harvested this weekend, I can't risk another frost on them, and I don't always have time to cover them up. They're a good size, and all green, so any that won't make it into chow will be put in brown paper bags to finish ripening.

Does anyone know when squash is supposed to be picked?

All that's left are the squash, sweet potatoes, a few cukes, onions, carrots & garlic, if the garlic actually survived.

I think I picked at least 15lbs worth of cukes in the last few days. And I don't like cukes raw, I only eat them when they're pickled.

We used to have an Apricot Tree. I really miss it, so we're thinking of planting another one next year. What type of Apples?

Starting to get frost warnings so it is covering up the garden. The tomatoes are awesome this year. Picked one of the smaller apple trees so I can make spiced cinnamon apple rings. Couple more apple trees to pick. Lots of fresh veggie for meals. Have a good day.
