Well said, Muriel. Had a chance to speak with two touring kids groups on Wednesday about "air plants," specifically Spanish Moss and Ball Moss. Yesterday, started an edible garden project with a local grade school.
No idea on double-up on sprouts. It's one of several veggies I no longer had to eat once I left home and I've stuck to that decision. :)
Muriel, you are my kind of gardener! We need more compassionate, free-thinking people in this world. Go grow a few more!
Catherine, Happy St. Patrick's Day.
Corned beef and Cabbage for us!
Thanks Linda, like they say, "It's a dirty rotten job, but somebody's gotta' do it." About the attitude of politicians these days. I like to think of our children like the harvest of the future. Metaphorically speaking, they are the crop that will eventually come to harvest and be the ones in control of our sorry old hides. We need to make them smart, compassionate and free thinking.
Love your nurturing of the Kindergarteners, Muriel!
It's raining!!! Just before the rain, I planted potatoes, bush beans, Romanos, shelling peas, garlic, bok choi, beets and cabbage. Hoping for a showing soon. I've been subbing Kindergarten this week. No time for garden. What a trip those little guys are. One little Korean kid was adopted by Jewish parents. He asked if I wanted to hear a little Hanukkah song. He proceeded to sing, " The itsy bitsy octopus climbed up the water spout. Down came the rain and washed the octopus out." Wow! Today Hokey Pokey with 100 kindergarteners! Different garden, different set of muscles. It requires far more energy than weeding, tilling and planting. I guess that crop is much more important than my back yard garden. If my home garden fails, it's only a temporary setback. If we fail to nurture them, we pay big time!
Wally, anything is possible. Don't know if a second year plant will produce or not. Did you harvest the sprouts? This would be a question for one of our master gardeners. Bob's in Florida, don't know if they do sprouts; Bonnie is further north. Maybe she or another master knows.
ok with the crazy weather we have had I have a question. has any one heard of brussell sprouts re rooting them selves. i left mine in from last year & i noticed that the stalk has new roots on it.
Does any one happen to have any Peter Pepper Seeds?
Nancy if you still have snow and ice I would say it is a bit early. I'd say wait til your temps stay above freezing at night and at least 45-50s days.
