Default Gardening 2012

Sharon and I went out this afternoon and planted a 120 feet of Potatoes. We have already planted a 100 ft. row. We planted 100ft of Beets, Carrots, Radishes, and Spinach. We have already planted 2-100ft rows of onions. We have 216 assorted Tomatoes, Peppers, Cabbage, and Lettuce growing in Pots to transplant. Got a good start. After danger of frost, we'll get serious about Gardening.

I wish I had your ambition and the room for a garden like yours.

In my neck of the woods we don't call that a garden. That's a dang farm! My gardening days are over. Last year was a disaster. I'll be your roadside stand "best customer".

Good to see you on the Board, Nes. When you go into a thread to read or make a post, there should be a task bar across the top that says Thread Tools. Go in and check to receive Emails, and you should get them. Might be sure the Board is in your address book, where the email wont be sent the the junk mail file.

Planted 2 rows of Corn. Planted 2 Crab Apple trees and 13 Tomato Plants. After Easter, I'll get serious about Gardening.

Found the tomato plants the wife wanted. Getting ready to plant them in tubs. Also got the water well guy coming to see what it will cost me to replace the water pump. Being A busy day.
