Garden Season
#1
I'm going to put this under news discussion for a while now that garden season is starting.  I'm only doing peppers this year.  So far I have 18 started, and I'm waiting for the obscenely hot pepper seeds in the mail.  Do you garden?  How?  What?

I find it interesting in the way people reference their plantings.  Mrs. autie likes to talk about 'her peonies' or 'my hostas'...my, my, my...always the possessive pronoun.  I generally just refer to the snow peas or the marigolds.  I planted some peppers.  Hot banana and jalapeno.  I should have a glory of snow peas when 'they' start producing.  Pole beans are germinating.  Spinach is up and rolling.  That garden is like a man cave.  It is a place to escape.  This year has been fun with the engineering of a new drip hose watering system.  What, with all the hose fittings and such.  The birds much preferred the old fashion sprinkler but it is too wasteful.  It was fun to watch the cardinals though, get on the trellis in the beans, taking showers.

Just when does garden season begin? 
I am harvesting produce now, is there a penalty for gardening out of season?

OK, I mean time when most people put vegetables outside to grow.  I think we are past our last frost.

These seeds should be here this week

No veggie garden for me this year.  Or last year either, come to think of it.  Or the year before that or...well, it's been a while.  We used to have a nice garden with cukes & radishes & roma tomatoes & peppers & whatnot, but we turned that space into an ornamental perennial garden.  I might till up a new space for some veggies, but I'm not feelin' the need or the passion for it right now & don't wanna half-a$$ it.  Might plant some maters in containers, though.

I have a huge deck & part of it is right above the big bush.  You may be thinkin' that should be the other way around, but only if your mind is in the gutter.  Besides, the deck is redwood & the bush is bayberry & is located in another perennial garden.  Anyway, on the deck I have beaucoup flower pots & always look forward to the month of May to fill them with annuals & a few perennials for transplanting later.  I'm in the process of making my list of flowers to fetch from the various nurseries.  I love the springtime.  I wish it would stop teasing us & stick around for a while.

~~I've got 30 lbs. of potato seed in and that's it thus far. I'll put in a dozen 'mater plants, a few squash and pumpkins and the rest goes to sweet corn. It's a pretty simple garden. I garden because I enjoy it and I grow what people want. I give 95% of what I grow away.

Very nice.  Wish I had more land so I could do that.

I have about 50 different plants sown,  in a month I should be able to take them from the greenhouse and let them rip.  I have to mix soil for them.  Westlake has organic soil for about 10$ a bag.  They are supposed to like sand to so I have to find washed sand.

I think I'm going with gallon containers and a drip watering system.

Also made two clones of my wondering jew... that I ripped a cutting off from a NC state park and flew back in a ziplock bag.

As the never-ending winter seems to ending in these here parts, my alley neighbor has finally put in the plants in his garden.  He has had the soil tilled for about a month; I guess he was making sure the ground was finally warm enough.  It looks like he has only planted one row of tomatoes; I don't know what the rest of the neighbors are going to do...that will be just about enough 'maters for me.   I'll give them my share of the peppers and cucumbers...none of those for me.
