I am limited here though I have the spot to build a small green house with excellent Southern exposure.

I covered the tomatos to eat another day.

We are enjoying greens from the garden for dinner. I had to laugh at my 2 year old grandson trying to pull up a radish and ending up on his rear but radish in hand. I had to thin my aloe plants - they really flourished this year. We have a couple of tomatoes developing on the vine. No luck on pumpkins, but winter squash are doing well. I enjoyed a Meyer lemon last week and have only one left for the season. The Key limes are ready and dropping (will definitely have Key Lime pie with Thanksgiving). Our navel oranges and pink grapefruit should be ready soon (Ambrosia anyone?). I hope we get a cold snap to sweeten them. We set out over 100 onion plants. We definitely need rain. Maybe Hurricane/Tropical storm Ida will help us out.

Did you know that adding ash from campfires and charcoal fires enriches your soil? Sounds like a good reason to cook out, doesn't it?

At last count I had about 40 tomatoes on the vine. Radishes galore and enough greens for dinner. Most of my carrots were wipe out when my husband decided to move a fence. That was an interesting discussion. I never could get a pumpkin to develop on a vine. I guess we are too hot for the Great Pumpkin to visit us, Charlie Brown. laugh.gif

Now I am trying to talk myself into pulling weeds from the front yard. It just seems so anti-Christmas to do so.

Today in the mail I got my corn seeds and seedless watermelon. The last frost date here is May 15th. I am getting excited to start the new garden of 2010! thumbs_up.gif It's been awhile since anyone has posted here. What's going on with everyone's gardens, new gardens, plans, catalogs?

All of my hops have sprouted. I have six varieties and should have lots to make beer with this year.
The bulbs are all out of the ground and there are leaf buds on the rose and the apple tree. It's a bit early for the apple, but it will do what it's going to do.

I didn't start any planter boxes last year because it was kind of late in the planting season when I moved into my condo. I'll have to do it this year after consulting with my condo board president to see what is allowed.

Here in Georgia it has been so cold with rain, sleet, or snow we can't even think about planting. This ground is very wet.

Ground is still frozen. Even the squirells are having trouble digging up nuts.

Ahhh, the rituals of spring .... long hot baths to ease the strained muscles, bandaides to cover the blisters and antibiotic creams for the antbites. biggrin.gif Well, worth the pain.

I have raked and mowed the lawns. My husband has built a compost bin for me. Will move four rose bushes to a better location and get squash, eggplant, lettuce, parsley, basil, marigolds and pansies in the ground (my sage, thyme, and dill made it through the winter). I am still waiting on heirloom tomatoe plants to arrive. I had bought a fig tree before winter and I have thoughts about an avocado tree.

Have you noticed the price of tomatoes?????

Rindy, I was trying to think of the three sisters. Three vegetables that you grow together in a mound that benefit each other. Corn and squash are two but can't think of third yet. wallbash.gif

Planting here is some time off yet but my raised garden will likely be planted with asparagus. I will buy all else from the Amish produce auction.

The tulips are starting to push up through mud here in the West, grass will need trimming soon and I need to clean out the greenhouse so the sprouts have a warm place to get started.

It's great some of us are ahead of others! Gives me something to look forward to. thumbs_up.gif Hops are up, yes blessed. Camac those poor little squirrels. Soon it will be time for them. Flora I think the three sisters the last one is beans? I could be wrong. McRoach what color tulips do you have? gwenlee, sorry to hear you can't plant yet.

I sure hope my peppers grow this year. Each year is so different. As flora said the cost is unreal. Plus if yours are like the ones I've been getting the quality is terrible.

We have enjoyed collards, onions, butter and romaine lettuce from the garden so far. The tomatoes, green peppers and yellow squash are producing little ones. It is so hard to be patient. I had to pay $4.00 for 4 tomatoes yesterday. sad.gif

Oh, I also have figs coming along on the tree. Yummmm. The orange blossoms are pretty much through but the lemon trees have yet to bloom. And the loquat or Japanese plum tree is very abundant in fruit much to the joy of the dogs and birds and occasionally humans. biggrin.gif

Flora, to answer your questions about the "red lilies" you saw in Charleston. My guess would be the Southern Spider lilly. It just springs up all of a sudden with a stem and no leaves. Here in the deep South this lilly makes its present known in late summer beginning in September. Many Southerns call this lilly the "Hurricane" lilly because it blooms in the hurricane season. My wife and I honeymooned in Charleston 42 years ago. You should come to Savannah in the spring and see the azaleas bloom. Yes, come in March for St. Patrick's Day.
