We get up in the 100s here and down to 9-10 degrees lately but could get to -10. I grow it in a pot and it just keeps coming back every year.

Thanks for that Vicky,its a very good looking informative chart.

Still not sure about sorrel it says zone 4 to 9, it would have to be the shade for me. Maybe that's why I don,t know of it. It says its a cool climate herb. I believe strongly in eating food thats grows in your climate and not in other climates. For me I should be planting more Asian type crops and eating an Asian type diet. Not an English diet because we are not in England any more.

The boys that are coming to help me eat it right off the plant. They are whole/raw food eaters. I'm hoping to learn from them too. But I like warm cooked foods so it will be hard for me to go raw all the way for awhile.

Keryn I grow sorrel but I don't eat it since I don't like things that make me pucker. It goes in salads and anything else you like that tastes like biting into a lemon. Treat it like any other green. Put sorrel recipes into your search engine.

Vicky, what do you use sorrel for.

Comment by Keryn, USDA Zone 10 Australia on July 23, 2014 at 5:37pm

I planted carrot seeds in late Autumn and nothing happened. I thought you silly thing that was a waste of time when winter is coming. I went out to put some more in and theres heaps of tiny carrots up. HAPPY  My days are growing longer again. The cabbage seedlings that were being eaten, I planted out and some have survived, since I got rid of the bugs.

It's Wed. two days before the new moon, get planting your above ground growers. My zuc is growing fast, have a grape tomato on the plant. I need to remember to start some stuff indoors today for the fall garden if I ever get it set up or can put them into the boxes after the beans are done.

Vicky, You are doing well to have anything growing, and as far as the car, some things have to get put off, in order to get other things done. You will get to it soon. Fire season is no dame good anywhere. Last summer , I hardly saw any bees the heat killed off everything they did not come back until Autumn when it cooled down a bit. I had a very heavy cold dew last night it was soooo close to frost, but not quite. I ,m keeping my fingers crossed for no frost. I have too many plants that will not like it. We had a really nice day after the cool and a bit of lovely sunshine, so I got outside. Ah, it makes you feel good.

"LOL my fish do this when its spawning time, the first full moon in summer. I hear loud splashing, and think one of the dogs has fallen. The fish push one and other out of the water to try to get to the fish laying eggs, they are very rough with one…"
