Not much posting




Nearly the only garden things that are going on now are tiny geraniums popping up, spindly threads of petunia seedlings and a couple of lusty little tomatoes peeping out of cut off a Mountain Dew bottle in the living room windows. As I write it is snowing up a squall and the wind is whistling up December. They can't drown out the gurgling rings of red-winged black bird calls though, or silence the insistent bugling of northbound geese. Still I am having a hard time working up any enthusiasm for gardening, even to the point of starting a few more petunias. It is just too persistently cold and dreary.



However, the one bright spot on the still-winter stage is the indoor lettuce. After I took this portrait, I plucked a few leaves and ate them. Yeah. Good stuff

My seeds have just started to germinate. I'm worried that I may have started too early. More snow today here too.

Hi apple, I know snow in March is normal but....enough is really enough. You folks have had a lot more than we have too. I need to start more petunias. Mine haven't done well and I like to have a lot to put out around the yard.

Here in Florida we are in the process of shopping for some shrubs and fruit trees to plant around the house. I love Spring!

Hi Ken, I love it too! But it is getting here real slowly, except for the birds who have burned all their bridges and are going all out for it...happy planting!
