.... is it one of those "can't win for losing" scenarios I've heard about? I'm just going to be sad this year, in that case.

Well, it is a bit of work. YAY for today! The first lonely little asparagi has come up! With the super mild winter and suddenly summer-like temperature, I wasn't sure what was going to happen with my poor asparagus. Apparently, I need not worry. In other good news, my recently rediscovered mesclun p...

DAAAAAW! I just saw your Scottish fold kitty hiding by one of the trees, in an "about to pounce" pose in the tree pic. So cute :D The rooftop garden looks great. The good thing about them is that you are just about guaranteed full sun. The black sunflowers are beatiful. And the plant trays look heal...

Yay! I left a baby carrot plant buried over winter, and its sending up leaves this spring! In celebration, I replanted the pot with leftover Scarlet Nantes seed I had. Noms.

CockneyRebel-Thats what containers and indoor dwarf varieties are for.There's a whole spectra of plants, orchids, and flowers that can be grown indoors in very little space. Not every enthusiast has a large garden plot :D You just have to like gardens.

Thanks Kjas, but the fish emulsion part is out - I'm vegetarian.
Identity, do you mean the upside down hanging tomato planters? I've heard good and bad about them.

LOL. Cilantro (coriander) grows like a weed around here - put it in the ground and make sure to harvest before it sets seed. And Burpee just came out with this lovely novel variety called Confetti, I think. I've been intending to buy some seed. I think pineapples are a bromeliad...Do you live in a w...

Not hot, per se, particularly. Zone 7b for me. The summers are quite variable. One year can be cool and wet, and local farms will be abundant with everything. The next year, hot and dry, and crop failures all around. Thats why I like to grow just a bit of my own, and I'm expanding it a bit. The carr...

YAY for orchid growers! I don't do much growing anymore, its a bit intensive. I do some watching of the Calypso Bulbosa that grows out back, and the color variations in the flowers as well as the environment it grows in/distribution. Seems to like a light pine mulching, and about 20m between plants ...

So, does anyone harvest seeds from supermarket plants and grow them sometimes? I've got Kumato seedlings now. I'd put the seeds I harvested at about 80% viability. Just fyi, Kumato is owned (and strictly licensed) by Syngenta, and the seed isn't available to the home market. BUUUT, if you take the s...

...Are you sure the blood tests didn't check for thyroid problems? Could be something there. On the other hand, you should know that those side effects listed only happen to a small percentage of those who take the medications.The more serious the side effect, the more likely a doctor will take you ...
