Actually I'm not so new.
Is spring coming early?
Hi, Karen! You know me... but not really from here as, the past few years, I've only lurked. I' Carol, in NW Ohio where there is snow (although not much, it's still snow) on the ground and where the snow isn't sticking, there's standing water. The weather is so confused it can't decided if it's the deep of winter or the start of spring and so far, no signs of plant life (thank goodness --- at this rate, if a daff stuck it's leaf above ground, it would for sure be zapped by a sudden change in weather!).
Anyway, I've pretty much given up on veggie gardening except for eggplant and tomatoes in large pots (I got hit with a squash stem borer three years ago which is still hanging about, and I couldn't even grow zucchini! Now that's criminal! The borer hit all squash *and* my cucumbers so planting turned out to be a total waste of time, as there is no real way to control it other than using nasty poisons and even they didn't have any guarantees.). Weather here has been an issue too. Either too cold or too rainy or too dry or... So I let DH has take over my raised bed as a daylily nursery and I joined a CSA for organic veg instead!
DH's garden, on the other hand --- daylilies and hostas galore. He's a Master Gardener and has taken our lawn and basically converted it to perennial flower beds... No more
How cool, I love the vertical garden!
Hi there, Karen, Brenda here in NW Missouri, I'm just doing some container gardening this year.
