Posted on 02/14/2014 12:27:30 PM PST by greeneyes
The Weekly Gardening Thread is a weekly gathering of folks that love soil, seeds and plants of all kinds. From complete newbies that are looking to start that first potted plant, to gardeners with some acreage, to Master Gardener level and beyond, we would love to hear from you. This thread is non-political, although you will find that most here are conservative folks.
No matter what, you wont be flamed and the only dumb question is the one that isnt asked. It is impossible to hijack the Weekly Gardening Thread. There is no telling where it will go and... that is part of the fun and interest. Jump in and join us!
NOTE: This is a once a week ping list. We do post to the thread during the week. Links to related articles and discussions which might be of interest are welcomed, so feel free to post them at any time.
It was warmer yesterday, and we had lots of melting. The winter rye is still green with a little brown on the tips. The indoor lemon tree has lemons the size of ping pong balls. The basil is doing well, and the tomato is doing pretty well, except it's a little more spindley than I would like.
Hope everyone is doing well. Stay warm, and safe. Have a great weekend. God Bless.
Pinging the list.
The obligatory rebel tobacco picture. Porch shown for reference. The tobacco has been harvested from bottom, so it's short some leaves from previous photos.
I just turned on the grow lights, and low and behold there are 2 tomatoes about the size of peas on the tomato plant-just when I had thought I wouldn’t see that for at least another month.LOL
It’s still a pretty nice looking plant even minus the bottom leaves.
We still have mailboxes covered with snow around here. Stop with all the pretty pictures. It makes me sad!
We'll still get some freezing weather before stuff goes out in the big garden.
Quit in March, 1986.
The company I was working for bought me a new Chevy Caprice. I couldn’t bare to smoke in it so I quit.
NO WAY! All plant pictures welcome and wanted.
I find the pictures cheer me up.
Just stare at them, and use your imagination to wallow in sunlight, and spring smells. Use your mind to overcome sad.LOL
Oh, I was just kidding! The only thing about the snow — if I think about it too long I start worrying about what lies underneath and will I be able to get the yard in shape before it flies again!
Down side is that in July-August, it's hotter'n hades here.
After double checking my notes, I won’t be starting anything for transplant until the end of March. If the weather warms up, I might sow some red clover outdoors to turn under this spring.
I probably need to make a new bed for potatoes, as I want to increase the number planted this year.
I’ve forgotten — are you in the Hill Country? When I moved to TX from CA in 1972 it took us all almost a year before we could stand to work in the yard, it was so hot and humid. After nearly 10 years, I’d finally gotten used to it. We were in the Houston area.
I know! I have decided to quit worrying. Like the song: Don’t worry, be happy.LOL
