We have quite a few seedlings on the front porch, and it's been so warm that they've gotten to spend a few nights outside! :D we are growing lots of tomotoes, romaine, cucumbers, melons, carrots, basil, cilantro, dill, oregano, chamomile, sage...and maybe some other things too :)

Drought makes me sad.  Everything out there is dusty at the moment.  

Comment by Gwendolyn Seablossom on April 11, 2013 at 5:18am
What a sweet rhyme :)

We continue to get storms, here in southeastern Oklahoma..so its delaying progress right now. Peach trees and winter pear trees are in bloom..

Sprouting okra, cucumber, tomato, canteloupe, and honey dew melon inside.. As well as two tomato plants, spaghetti squash, and mint are thriving inside. :)

Yummy treat to grow what we eat! some seeds and soil is just what we need...some water and sun to help them grow...and before you know, you have created life to nourish the soul!

Lekoma,  It is that point in the winter up here that I wished I lived else were. When I retire I will spend a few winter months in FLorida.  

  I noticed last spring that dandelions were the first to grow. I just ordered 10,000 dandelion seeds and when they get here I am going to throw down about half of them right on the snow.  I have an area  all fenced off for them. I am hoping they grow like weeds.

Lovely Dina! My gardening's a bit stalled until we re-fence, now that we have an inquisitive pup ;)

Hi everyone! I am so happy I've started my vegetable garden this year!

It helps me when I was vegan and it helps me now, I am on raw diet only a second month.

We also had had a snow here in New England but I still have a lot of greens, asian cabbages, bok choy, swiss chard, collard and mustard. All I need for green salads.

Good Luck to Sunny Florida!

Hi Lekoma you are so lucky with your climate, i'm making gardens @ moment ground is so hard & stony here so i just put a layer of cardboard or paper & cover with horse poops add old straw or hay & top with well rotted manure cover with plastic & hopefully in spring will uncover  beautiful soil! I've got some winter spinach & corn salad growing that is if slugs don't get em first & i've ordered some strawberry plants & am going to try sowing my peas at end of month to Hopefully get an early crop in April Roll on spring it's all wind & rain here at moment but that's Wales plenty of soggy wet weather.

Hi Lekoma. I'm just coming out of hibernation.  Its been a long, cold winter.  Today my husband and I walked around the yard and made plans for the next few months.  Two new plum trees and a bee garden are in the works.  Plus we are starting to get the soil prepped for planting.  Exciting times.

Your summer has been amazing.  I have been following though not participating(i'm like a sloth in the winter!). Are you lovin Florida? 

And, if you don't mind me asking-what wheelchair?
