Linda .. Ga Rattlesnake Watermelon plants are in the ground!  Thanks!

Pulled out the last of the cauliflower and most of the broc yesterday to make room for warmer weather crops.  Never did get anything but a beautiful plant out of the cauli ... going to try another variety next time.  Broc is still putting out small bits and I munch those like candy right in the garden.

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.

"Thanks Clare for the info. It is just the perfect height for under my living room window & seems to like the part sun & part shade corner there. Sometimes it would get too hot for a day or two in May & burn azaleas."
