William pot em up and sell them or find a store willing to sell your chamomile tea. I'll take all you want to send but you can put them in the compost just don't let them go to seed. They can be a lawn substitute just mow them down.

today I was grateful for the rain, we needed it, I hope that it was snow in the mountains, without enough snow in the mountains surrounding the valley where I live we will have a drought, so as much as I would hate to see it on my upcoming bulbs if it comes I won't complain, still I must admit I love the sound of rain

We are supposed to get Ice and snow tomorrow and 3 more storms coming in all week. I want the sunshine so I can get outside. I do have elephant garlic that is peeking through the straw and looks like all the onions came up that I planted back in Dec I think it was. Want to get some Raspberries & Blackberries. I think I am going to plant some peaches this year to. I going to go down and pull all those flowers out that Vicky told me not to plant and send some to her so she can make tea.

Bob some of us have to live vicariously thru your gardening tales while we still shiver and they predict snow of all things today. Our snow usually doesn't last long or it melts when it hits but it is too cold to have fun in the garden. I spend more time w/Wilma lately than at my house. So I haven't gone too crazy planting anything. The inside bugs keep eating my food I tried to grow inside. I still have a salad box of red lettuce that just sits there being small since it is packed full. Regrowing green onion bottoms in a pot w/Sweet Margoram starts from seed. The poor green onions started from seed in a small salad greens box puney looking from lack of water, space and food. Cilantro same problem and the red mustard bolted right away indoors. I see herbs and other stuff waking up outdoors.

Clearing out most of the winter greens that have bolted today to the compost pile.  Still have black simpson lettuce coming on strong under a shade cloth.  Cukes are in, sweet potato slips are in rooting pots, corn (silver queen) is planted (first time,) peas are still producing and Kentucky Wonder beans are up and going strong.  Vidalia onions are coming along nicely too.   Tomatoes seedings have their third set of true leaves so they will be going in the ground in the next week or so.  Limiting varieties to Juliet and Sunburst this Spring.   Cheers, all!

Luckily my vegetable garden is up a slope and about a half acre from the neighbor. Most is a box garden so no worries. I learned years ago not to ever plant to close to a neighbors fence unless its shrubs because people who don't garden and use poisons for weeds or bugs aren't very careful and will even spray on a windy day.

I have been very lucky with my neighbors, I have been in the one place for 30 years, it was only this year that my back fence neighbors lawn mowing guy, poisoned my plants along the back fence. You do have more control over your life and property when you own it however. We are not getting off track with this conversation , after all pot growing is horticulture HA HA. My crazy brother come out of horticulture school hooked on drugs.

When I bought my 2 acres I did ask about all the neighbors and got glowing reports on all of them. I soon found out that one neighbor had turned the inside of the house into a pot growing operation and was brewing Meth in the kitchen. After much covert evidence the operation was shut down and the entire yard and house were cleaned up but it took several years, a new well, and lots of work to recover from it.

Maryann , What Vicky says is true for it happened to us when we bought 4 acres in Ca. this is a long story and I don't to scare you. Mine was just about as bad but no pot growing. My life was threatened so I had to take legal action and and he finally moved. short story. Be very careful.

Comment by Vicky Myers on February 26, 2014 at 12:38pm

Maryann when you buy a house do extensive research on your neighbors first or you may get worse than you have now. Or find a place far away from neighbors. My friend's relatives have horrible stories of neighbors stealing their crops, tools, & garden art to finding people camping out on land next to them w/guns growing pot.
