The blueberry bushes, peach trees, pear trees, and plum tree and grape vines are blooming. The fig and cherry trees are not showing much sign of life, but I have some hope for them.…Continue

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?

Every morsel counts. The body knows when something is grown locally with love.  Go out and love on the peas and thank them and ask for more. BTW ask the critters to leave them alone.

Did you just pop them into your mouth or did you create something with a recipe?

I like to make samosas with my peas and cauliflower

Great info Lekoma,thanks!

Concerning the wasps, I have fond them to non-confrontational most of the time. While sitting on my wooden bench they will land next to me and chew off the wood fibers, then fly off then come back for more. Never buzzing or bothering me.

It is when they get swatted is when they get aggressive.
