Naked garden day? Yikes! I don't have enough sunblock.


Winston the pug frolics in the garden naked. I wear jeans, long sleeves and garden gloves.

Greetings from across the Atlantic!

Star - hope the weather starts to get better so that you can finally start growing stuff.

Weedwhacker - yes those are actually egg cartons holding 24 eggs. The only thing is that the lid is not tight so some evaporation does take place and you have to keep it moist periodically, unlike the totally closed system that Jonna uses.

Well, shoot !! One of our local supermarkets has styrofoam egg cartons, the other one has the cardboardy kind... might have to branch out a bit with my shopping!

Can y'all help me identify this Euphorbia? I probably shouldn't have dug it up and put it in my garden if it has managed to grow out in the lawn. Thumb of 2015-05-01/pmb2005/ded241

Excellent, Brenda!

Are you getting two sprouts per seed, or only one?

here are the Christmas Basil I grew this year. I probably had over 40 seedlings. I gave a bunch to the garden club and a friend is coming over to take more [i have 17 left] This bunch is going to WI for friends and family. Some are already blooming. I got these seeds from SCButtercup.

Ella -- feel free to use the images in your database... I just dont have time to do it right now.

A big gardening weekend: transplanted 2nd year Golden Raspberry canes, dug wild parsnips and garlic greens to roast for dinner, placed soaker hoses in lettuce and Asian brassica beds, potted up baby lettuces, Wasabi Arugula, Viburnum, baby Golden Raspberry volunteers, and Black Currant Swirl Hollyhocks for transplanting later. Lots of watering to do at the moment due to higher than normal temperatures and dry conditions. More Winter-sown sprouts have come up: Zinnia (Queen Red Lime - Baker Creek, Queen Lime Green - Baker Creek, Aztec Burgundy Bicolour - critterologist, Mazurkia - poisondartfrog), Celosia, Smart Look Romantica - chelle, Browalia americana, Blue Lady - the packet had no trader ID but it's 2010 seed and pretty sure it was from this swap, super stoked that it germinated!!, Nigella, Persian Rose - Floribunda Seed 2010, Pierrot Everlasting - Tuink, Cosmos, Rose Bon Bon, and Dianthus, Chianti - Tuink.

Transplanted Red Stalk Celery seems to be doing ok, although very small transplants still. I probably rushed things by transplanting it in such a small stage, but it's already getting warmer, so it was still probably the right move. I do have a few extra sprouts in case of disaster. The onions and leeks have at least 2 leaves now, which is encouraging. Tons of Mitsuba Japanese Parsley is coming up everywhere, so be advised, those of you who got seed from me - this is an avid self-seeder. I don't look at it as a bad thing, though. I never seem to have enough parsley and is amazing dried in a dehydrator for the off-season.

We should finally be getting our greenhouse this week!! I can't wait because there are things to pot up and I have no room on the table on the patio.
Grazie a tutti,
Julianna

I love the garden photos.I am a bit jealous of your rototillers and greenhouses. I am happy to have room inside for light shelves this year. Just as well, I have plenty of sprouts needing my attention!

I am running out of room inside also, Julianna. Luckily, it is finally warm outside. We still may get night frosts. Containers may have to be covered or brought back inside, but not for the next few days.

I had excellent germination from winter and early spring sowing. Most of my containers have sprouts! I even have radishes. I never got them to germinate before. The asian veggies loved late winter sowing. They are the largest sprouts - ready for the ground or bigger pots. the ground isn't ready for sprouts, but it is progressing. This is the first time the soil has been planted.

I saw the first hummingbird this season this morning. I love watching the little fellows!

Winston the pug is outside, barking at cars. I think I will join him - outside, not barking.

Have a great gardening afternoon!

Yep, Give me a bit and I will create one either today or tomorrow. Got watch my DWTS. Double elimination tonight. Can't miss my dancing and singing shows. Hilarious!

Soils Glad to see you still doing ok. I see on the tv that the water situation getting worse and worse. I sure hope things turn around for you soon. Hadrder than heck to try and grow without water.

Sorellina Glad you got your GH. Won't take long to fill it that is for sure.

Promise Looks like things coming along there. Thumbs up

Tcs. How pretty your Basil is. I'll get the pic for the database. I just don't know why the basils and mints don't like me, but they don't. They give me fits all the time.

Does anybody happen to know, does Conradina canescens 'False Rosemary' make seeds. The plants I have here are blooming and the flowers are small so I will have to bag them to catch them if it does. I haven't found any site so far with reference to the seeds, but since it is a native, it should right? Really pretty plant. I know it has the aromatic foliage, all ready found that out from a friend, but wonder if it is edible too. I have seen a reference to maybe some medicinal or at least oil.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conradina

too dark outside to take a pic of it right now. I'll try tomorrow.
