Yes, I can't help it. The more plants I kill the more plants I want to grow. I've had great success and great failure. Last year was great failure. This year I hope to have great success.

I'll start this.

Got a starter in the kitchen window. Heating pad underneath a 36 pod starter. I have 26 in the pods and have some hot pepper seeds ordered.

Image

The little tri-fin is where the next seeds will go.

Image

I'll rebuild my greenhouse here and set up my tower gardens and will see what happens.

Wish me luck...

Been pretty busy this winter, but the weather has been all time in The OC so I kept the garden going.

Check it...

Today.

Some of my mini-daffys bloomed yesterday. Temps hit 60 degrees in town today and it was breezy. I hope these hearty souls live if we get more snow!

Image


My tulips have a bud in the middle. I hope they grow tall. Last year the squirrels ate them before they could bloom. We've seen a squirrel on the slope behind us already.

Image


The north side of our large garden is bushing up nicely. I plan on raking next weekend then getting down to the Kmart garden shop for topper soil, etc.

Image


This is the only snow left on the small garden. I think it was completely covered only 3-4 times all winter with no more than a foot of snow.

Good looking plants, guys, and SL --but you know what I think of those daffys.

I'm starting fresh this year. No holdovers anymore on my deck due to some blight that killed all the leaves. All the planters get a bleach bath and I'll be planting tomatoes and whatever interesting chiles I can find in the next couple weeks. I'm sorry they couldn't be saved, but I'm looking forward to new crops anyway.

I think the Winter radish experiment was a success. They took care of themselves. I kind of feel like some runner beans, if I can keep them somewhat tamed in planters.

Keep up the inspiration!

Have you had any of those turn red yet MP??? You are becoming the master gardener my friend...

I've got lettuce, spinach, parsley, dill, cucumber, Alaskan Fancy tomato, Cherry tomato, Roma tomato and a couple of unknowns sprouting. I've got a great place for my green house here in Tahoe and hope to make up for last years disaster.

This evening.

Poor mini-daffys. You only had a week's worth of life. :(

Image


My poppies, tulips and Yarrow were greening up nicely. Hopefully some of them survive the spring snow.

Image

It's great to see more snow however. ^_^ :clap:

Looking good guys. Love your blackberries Hman.

I have lots of young ones and am determined not to kill them this year.

I've been studying a lot about heating my greenhouse and think that I can really extend my grow season and grow some great chilies.

Hey Max, I forgot to ask is that a current spider pic?
Cause thats an August spider. That would be a sign of the mild winter if theyre thriving through it.

Not yet, but this will be the last harvest from that plant so I am going to let them go until they turn red. I will save you some...

The last snow melted off the small garden...see the wet spots? The Ranunculus are greening up and today I spied one lone Crocus.

Image

Image


Then I spied a small bunch of happy Johnny Jump Ups on the slope! I love the purple and yellow faces! I bought two huge bags of topper soil last weekend and look forward to cleaning up and prepping our gardens soon.

Looks like rain this afternoon. Wish it would pour!
