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.
Add me to the ping list please
greeneyes is out of pocket today and sent an email asking some one else to post for her. She may have sent the email to others, so if it is multiple posted, that is why.
I didn’t do it right, so sorry. Pinging for greeneyes.
It’s 57 degrees with light precipitation here in Massachusetts. Our lettuce is happy.
String beans are up. Squash starting to blossom.
Anyone know anything about artichokes? Looking for help with planting and cultivating.
Thanks for stepping up.
I am just substituting for the regular host today, but when she gets home tonight and reads the thread, she will add you to the ping list.
Welcome to the garden thread.
We have fun here and are regulars, so welcome to the family, also.
Looks OK to me! Raining today in SE Wisconsin, but at least it’s warmer. I might even plant a flower.
Spring has finally sprung here in west Michigan. The garden is double dugged, and I have my romaine lettuce about 2 inches high under glass in a big pot. Also just started my pepper seeds. I know it’s late but I just didn’t want to start anything inside this year. Will probably plant some radishes later today after the rain stops.
You did just fine! thank You for filling in! :-)
Here is the forge with the modified leaf blower and the autotransformer that I use for a bellows.
The thing eats lots of charcoal. I need to find a source for coke instead.
I have nickle to quarter size tomatos on most plants today. My banana peppers are about 2” long on one plant and just budding out on others. I have no jalapenos yet, but the plants are growing and looking good.
My experiment of growing tomatos in the raised containers has not produced any flowers yet. I principle difference is the amount of water. They are not on a timer yet and depend on me to water and that is not as much as the in-ground tomatos get.
Thanks Johnny. I did not quite get it right, I had to get the admin to make an “adjustment” for me. :(
You’ve made a bunch of people happy by starting this thread. :)
That looks about like I had pictured it.
Good luck having fun with it.
Glad you are getting rain.
We are getting very light sprinkles, not enough to read in the rain gauge.
my plants in my small unheated green house look eager to get into the ground....
Squash plants have lots of little squash. Bean and tomato plants are blooming and putting on. Cucumbers are growing faster than I ever remember.
Can't wait to see some expert answers. I'm in the same boat as you. I planted 2 about 3 weeks ago.
