Welcome to our forums!
This online gardening community is different, political, and organic. I decided to start these forums so gardeners would have a free place to discuss heirloom gardening, gene-altered food, seed saving, natural politics and products. We are dedicated to saving our food and horticultural heritage, and hope you enjoy this forum for the free-thinking gardener!
Wishing you great gardening,
Thanks Good luck with yours too. Tomatoes are out, beans are coming up more and more. I hope we actually get some beans this year- the heat did them in last year and they didn't produce a single bean Peppers are looking good, okra is growing taller and getting more true leaves. I've never grown okra so this will be a fun little experiment
I am in So. Oregon. Only cool crops can be planted now. We don't plant warm season crops until may 15th. We can just make it with corn and tomatoes if we do everthing right. I am sorta kicking myself right now, because I think I overwatered my tomatoe seedlings a little bit. On a few, the leaves are slightly curled and a few have one leaf stem that is drooping. But, they still look good, so I think they will be fine if that is the problem.
My main garden is only about 35 by 28. I have smaller ones all around and was given two raised beds. It still isn't enough room for everything I want to do.
My husband brought home some pallets made of 2 x 6's, so I will have a few more small raised beds to add.
The only things in bloom at my house are: lavender, allysum, dianthis, rosemary, wild strawberries and unwanted dandelions. Most are just in small flower beds. The only thing I have lots of are the weeds so far. I am waiting for my covercrop of red clover to bloom, so I will know when I will be able to turn it over and can start planting. I want to get some plastic mulch down to start warming the soil for my warm crops. I have lots more flowers and vegetables starting under my lights. This is the first year that I am starting most of my stuff by seed.
I haven't SEEN them, but I haven't really LOOKED either. I will make a point to the next time I go.
As for what I'm growing...EVERYTHING! I've got four types of hot pepper, four bells, two eggplants, zucchini, squash, tomatillos, blue lake bush beans, okra, fennel, a dozen tomatoes, and an assortment of herbs. I was going some salad greens, but it's already too darn hot for them
She's doing well, thanks! She had her first agility class tonight since the incident - she's had three weeks off and hasn't missed a beat. You really have to look for the scar now it is healing very well.
