I do most of my growing of veggies with my roses and herbs on the back patio.

I spent a few hours in the gardens Wednesday. Planted peas, lettuce, green onions, red table onions, kale, swiss chard, parsnips, carrots, and blue potatoes. Also did some weeding and transplanted some perennials. What a great feeling to get the garden in!

I am way behind on everything this year. Looks as though my garden is going to very small. Just can't seem to get everything going.

I have bought lettuce, cabbage, brussel sprouts, spinach, 3 kinds of white potatoes, 3 kinds of onions, garlic, and I think something else but they are all nice plants. Cut the grapes, roses, cherry bushes, blackberry bushes, some flowering bushes and trees back today. Should of done that in February but weather was bad. Now I have to get the lime and rotary tiller going an then the fence up before I plant because the rabbits and deer will have dinner on me. Have fun gardening I do.

I am a very easy going gal that loves people and wants to know as many as I can. I want to make new friends so I can enjoy more of life. When people get to 55 or 60 there are some that think life should be over but guess what it is just beginning. Maybe 50 years ago it was over but not now people are living longer and working in their 70's. I would have been if I didn't have leukemia and it does not stop me but I have good days and bad, so being home if I need rest, I rest, at work I couldn't do

My lean too is up and my plants are in it. It is staying 60 degrees and that is great. In another week I am going to put the lettuce, spinach, and several kinds of tomatoes, plus cabbage out in it. Really neat to have with lights and heater when I need it.

Ruth Stout, a wheelchair gardener who wrote books, froze her tomatoes. I think I would cut them open and squeeze out most of the seeds, just so they would be more tomato-flavored. The seeds are very healthy, so drink/eat them or freeze separately.

Ruth Stout put her thawed or thawing tomatoes into a blender so the skins were not toughly apparent. Some people would scald and remove the skins, but the blender works.

I am starting to plan what I am going to plant where now for summer. Meanwhile I'm seeding more kohlrabi in kale and spinach to plant out as soon as possible. I like to have 10 or more tomato plants, tend to 30 peppers, a few summer squash, and as much else as I can possibly throw in which is a lot. Beets, turnips, carrots, dill, fennel, potatoes, melons, winter squash, it seems to go on and on. Which is just the way I like it. How about you?

Gardening is a kind of disease. It infects you, you cannot escape it. When you go visiting, your eyes rove about the garden; you interrupt the serious cocktail drinking because of an irresistible impulse to get up and pull a weed.

I get seed starters that have 72 small dirt holes. They worked pretty good. I have a lot of pots and when I eat something I can get seeds from out to the pots and hot house. Right now I am doing peanuts, cucumbers and grapes. I have spinash, lettuce. radishes and other things I am going to start now because I have some coming up and they said I could stagger the planting time. I hope everything turns out. Good planting.

I don't do container gardening in my greenhouse, exactly. I have two large 2 feet by 12 foot, 12 inch high planters. I harden off my starts by sinking the peat pots or containers directly into the planters. I so this because my climate is extremely dry and the containers stay moister. The soil in the containers also stays warmer at night.

It sounds like you have a late spring like I do. I will probably have to wait until mid June to put out frost tender plants so they will have a long period in the greenhouse before going into my garden. I am in a town that has one of the shortest growing seasons in the US. I depend heavily on every season extending tricks I can find.

I just got back from the Wyoming Master Gardener's Conference and learned more tricks I will attempt this year.

Good luck to all you do and I wish you a bountiful harvest.

Good morning,
I have planted yellow onion sets into two rectangle planters -- They are the only planting I have done so far -- It is looking like there won't be a dependable "WARM-UP" until the middle of May here. I'm going to try container dardening in a greenhouse for my tomatoes, cucumbers, and green peppers for the first time this year. Have you ever or do you do greenhouse container gardening?

Yesterday, I planted onion seeds in a flat that sits on a shelf in a window. I did this last year and had great results. Last years seeds were from a package but this year I planted seeds harvested from my garden. I hope they were mature. If not I can buy more. I will see if they germinate.

My year was not nearly as productive as I had hoped. I got a good crop of white and yellow onions and garlic and a decent crop of tomatoes. I am still eating tomatoes as they ripen, I picked them green right before our really hard freeze in early october. They are still ripening in my root cellar. I got enough leaf lettuce for salads all summer and peas and pole beans for an occassional meal. My cole crops failed this year although a year ago I had lots of cabbage and broccoli. I should be able to harvest a few spears of asparagus and plenty of rhubarb. I am still waiting for my apple and plum trees to mature.

This year has been very productive. I already have green beans, yellow squash and okra in the freezer. Plus with all the abundant fruit, I have strawberries and blueberries frozen. Does anyone can or freeze their harvest?
Next I am planning on canning peppers, tomatoes and making salsa.
