I pretty much planted them at the worst possible time of the year so I would consider getting a few ears to be a victory garden.
We've had mostly non-stop rain and dark cloudy skies since I planted the corn, and it's already sprouted.

finally used the last of our tomatoes. I have about 1/2 dozen cherry ones in the window; they are ripe, so will be in our next salad, probably in the next couple of days. Boy our warm fall has made them last weeks longer than usual.

Today while wandering in the left over snow and frozen ground, I stared at my garden spot. Remember, didn't have a garden last summer. I went in got a sketch pad went back out and started drawing out my garden plans. YES I will have a vegetable garden this summer! Can't wait for June 1st so I can plant.

The first project for the new garden spot will be to have a backhoe dig an 80 foot trench 2 feet wide to fill with lots of organic matter and phosphate and potash. Don't know if it can be the desired two feet deep or not. As soon as 3 year old asparagus plants are available that will become our permanent asparagus bed. Next two it will be a two foot high raised strawberry bed. I have already bought a pound and a half of zipper cream pea seed. The overall schematic is partially drawn up. There will be a show of cherry blossoms in two to three years in front of the living room window on the street side. At long last a dream is coming together. 32 years without a real garden has me like a kid in a penny candy store with a five dollar bill now.

got a gift card for home depot to purchase some garden supplies and got lots of veggie seeds in my stocking, so I am really in the mood now, but can't even think about start thinking about getting them started indoor for about another month or so.

We got a load of topsoil for the yard, so I topped off the raised bed and planted some mixed beet seeds today. All that remains from last year are rosemary and oregano. I will focus on herbs because my past veggie efforts are not worth it. I use herbs, so that works for me.

Lemon Basil and Cilantro seeds sprouted, I've never tried the former before, but I like lemon.

I love lemon basil; think I will look for some seeds. I have rarely seen it in plant size since we moved to AR. I grew it all the time in NM.

Decided to take this year off from gardening. But if I keep coming back to this forum I know you guys will motivate me into doing it again without even mentioning it to me. lol. Seeing some posts in all the threads just gets me in the mood.


Been doing a veggie garden since 2003 every single year. Wanna take this year off. We'll see. No Cambium Garden Pic thread. lol.
