I like to get my container pots planted. I dont do veggies anymore cause I love flowers so much I dont want to use up the little space I have. I start the pots sometime in early May.

Hello Lora and Bob and Jac. I live in the NE corner of I am borderline zone 4/5. I just had total knee replacement and cant believe the bad timing. Like you said, such a short season we have, if we dont do it fast, dont do it at all. But my knee has been limiting the amount of quality time and work I have been able to spend in the dirt so with a new one, maybe next year I can get out there and liven it all up again. I think I saw one daffodil blooming out there this morning from the window. I plant the later variety. Lora, my mouth just waters at the mention of radish...mmmm.

Snow? Where are you? I am in Western WI and we haven't had snow for some time now ... my radishes are up, my rhubarb is up, chives & garlic chives (always the first) and today ... asparagus!! YEAH!! Now, if we'd just get some rain! It's always an adventure gardening here ...

Zone 4, where gardeners do it fast or don't do it at all... LOL With only 93 days between the 'last frost date' and 'first frost date' we have to be good! My hot bed is full of trays of the flowers and vegetables for this years upcoming garden. As I look out at the snow I dream of spring....

"Starting over with fruit trees is a long-term investment. At least minis produce with fewer years waiting! Some people might think one summer to wait for veg is a long time. Seems like just after my full size trees started to bear, we moved. 17…"

"The beautiful red sorrel that tastes like lemon--wintered over in the ground! Unfortunately, no photo of it. Tidy colorful accent plant."
