  • Well, I accomplished the exhaustion but the garden paths are done and the warm season beds are ready for planting. Now to chill out for about two more weeks.

    The edamame was not been started, nor some bell peppers and those cukes. I just have to get some computer work done. So..... this entry needs to stop as well.

  • I am not sure I feel very inspiring but thank you. I may inspire folks to get an apartment and raise silk flowers, but, when it is all said and done, I do feel a sense of accomplishment that I did it all all. :-)

  • Hope springs eternal but to night mine is hovering just a little above 33. I have my planting done and now on my knees and praying.

  • 7:15 AM Saturday. I have a low at front of house of 37 degrees. On my recessed (below ground level) patio where my planters and hay bale beds are it is 40 degrees. Hopefully I dodged the bullet.

  • I watched the temperature all night long last night, and prayed a lot! My plants and roses all look like they made it fine and now if I can just get through tonight I will be more then happy! So far multiple buds on several of the roses, and the glad's are popping through the ground too. My temp hit 36, but my plants and garden seem tohave made it!

  • My figs seemed to be OK and while the tomatoes survived, a few have blackened leaf tips. All things considered, I believe we survived as well.

    I admit though, I covered my beets, garlic and bok choy with a light fiber blanket. The garlic were going to be OK but they were in the bed with the beets and bok choy.

  • All of our plants seem to have made it through with almost no problem. Some of our lettuce does have some blank tips, but that seems to be it. Everything from our spinach, onions, potatoes, and snap peas are doing perfectly.

  • I started planting summer things today. Set out a few tomatoes, eggplant, basil and planted summer flowers at the ends of each of my rows.

    Tomorrow will probably be edamame (edible soybeans, fuzzy melon and bitter melon and I really, really, really need to stake my sugar snap peas.
