Comment by William Brooks Zone 7/OK on Monday

In the 80's past week and 32 this morning and 29 tomorrow morning crazy weather snow in the panhandle today. All I have planted outside is Radishes & Spinach and they're  just popping through the ground. All my tomatoes are up in the green house no Bell peppers yet. Hope all my new trees make it through the night. Peaches just started leaving & the nuts haven't come out yet and the Fig tree has 3 big leaves on it. I can move the Fig up closer to the house for it's on the front porch. Wind has been natrousus all week. Can't wait to start planting and playing in the dirt.

Shorts in the day time and coats at night getting down to 32 tonight and last night. My son help? Don't make me laugh.

I sprayed with bicarb and I think the powdery mildew has stopped spreading, I cut off what was infected, the rain has stopped and sunny days again so should be ok. Theres still heaps of tomatoes on the bush so worth saving. I think I will plant another zucchini plant. Dug up what was left of my carrots and made soup yesterday and have planted a couple rows of new carrots for winter. I have done very well this year really, with my shade archs. No one else that I know had any veggies during summer it was just too hot. I still have the same silver-beet growing thats been there all summer, normally that would have run up to flower months ago. Vicky enjoy the shorts, I,m just starting to wear long pants again.

Good luck Vicky, I was just going to say ten years makes a big difference to your fitness level. You will need most of the plants yourself anyway and you will just have collect rocks again too, so taking them with you makes sense. The problem is doing it all in a short amount of time. Is your son helping you.

10-11 years. It's fine with me gives me a big head start on my plant biz. I grew some of this and had my rocks and rock paths at my last place just down the road. I moved it all down here when I came here. I got the path in the herb garden dug up, I had forgotten how much concrete was attached to it. I scored it for free from a lady from church, just had to get it up the hill in her back yard. Things sure are heavier the older I get. Maybe I go click a few pics of my progress.

I understand her reasoning as her husband had that stroke he is trying to recover from and they both are in their 70s. So they can't keep up on it while trying to rent or sell it. My neighbor might buy if that happens I'll chat with them at to what they will want to do w/it.

Vicky, that seems rather petty of your landlady making you dig everything up. Such a shame after all the effort you have put into your garden. Have you lived there for a while?
Comment by Vicky Myers on Saturday

This isn't about veggies except that I am closer to paying the water assessment on the farm so I can get there to grow lots of vegs. I stayed home the past 2 days and sold plants out of my gardens. My landlady wants it to all get dug up and go away with me so they can put grass back in. Shaking my head, grass over food, grrrrrrrr.

Comment by Jeff Mais on Saturday

Got both temp greenhouses up this week and just sowed all the sugar snap peas and lettuce. Plan to sow spinach this weekend as well

If the wind wasn't blowing off and on today it would have been a perfect weather day. Nice to be back into my shorts.

I have one head of leaf lettuce growing out there that was planted last fall w/some green onions, cilantro, violets, & chamomile all over. Been digging up my rock paths, creeping & wooly thyme today. Yesterday was digging flowers, sweet woodruff, & garlic chives. Chatted with a new neighbor about gardening and buying some of my plants or at least taking some home with her. Have to still hand water as the landlord hasn't gotten the pipe to my system over here yet. Since his stroke things aren't getting done. Made a few little baskets with chives, thyme, pineapple mint and violets.
