AV's opening post:
My garden in Spring 2011

We don't have a new garden post. Boxy! We need one. I can't post it because I'm having technical difficulties.

Anyways, this year I'm going to have a special garden. This is the first year I'm going to try to grow wildflowers from seeds and get them to take in my environment. Its going to be a real challenge because the wildflowers are from Colorado, but I'm going to grow them in New Jersey. I'm talking about Columbines, Coneflowers and alot of flowers like that, but all from seed.

I have a few different areas that I am going to try, but I'm also going to try to grow them as container plants. Don't know if I will be successful, but I'm doing it anyway.

We've had the worst of winters. Its been beyond awful here and I've felt like I lived in Maine instead of New Jersey. I'm not knocking Maine, but I wouldn't choose to live there because its so cold and snowy.

I still have my potato bags from last year. They survived the winter, amazing! This year, I'm only planting red potatoes. They had a much better yield than the Yukon Gold potatoes last year.

I'm going to plant lots of lettuces. The lettuces flourished in the planter beds. I buy Gurney's Red Sails and Mixed Greens and they were very prolific last year.

Also prolific were the Early Contender green beans. I'm using last years seeds and have done that in the past. They are still good.

That is one bit of idiocy I haven't kept track of.

I'm not keeping track of any of it.

I'm just hanging out, hoping. Way too much idiocy for me.

Still waiting to get the garden back...

by AnsuGisalas In reply to TR Garden Club - Episode ...

It looked promising last week, but then we had more snow, and more -10 C nights.
Everything is still depressingly white.
Except where the dog poo has had it's way.
We now have to puppies, both fawn pugs, aged 7 months and 3 months.
One is house trained... the other not so much. We get a lot of wet sock surprises.

That's the elder when she was a tiny puppy, she's now adopted the youngster.

The Pug goes way back, it's one of the oldest documented breeds. Confucius and Lao Tze apparently both had pugs for company

What a cute puppy! How could you ever get mad at him for anything with eyes like that.

Two eagles with a hatchling and an egg about to hatch. The parents have been handing off duties to each other. Its just amazing to watch.
