    Hello!

    Thanks everyone for the votes and congrats on being Farmer of the Day! I didn't even know it until today. I'm so ashamed I haven't made any updates or uploaded pictures. Most of my garden is doing well this year. I have lots of different types of tomatoes growing and cucumbers galore, along with different types of beans and many flowers. I've been doing some more natural landscaping for nature's critters. I really need to upload pics of this year's gardens. Thanks again everyone for your comments.

    Hey Quinn Looks like I missed your farmer of the day win. Congratulations on that. I'm having a good garden year, so far. The berries are particularly plentiful and I have found there to be fewer pests in the garden. Only one slug in the strawberries so far. Maybe I should be knocking wood (I'll do that now). How is you garden year going?

    Well, my seeds are all in and most are growing, but still little babes. I have noticed that it must still be too cool for peppers to come up at all. I only just now found since mid-March 1 bell pepper plant that came up from seed. All others - nothing. I planted plenty of hot peppers - no seeds germinated. I guess its been too cool here still. Boy, sure do have alot of bugs chewing on stuff though! I'll upload pics when something of interest starts looking good enough to be worth showing. Everyone have a great growing season in 2014!!!

    Ah Quinn. I'm jealous. You've already planted outside. This year I think I will get some seeds in the ground outside before May, like lettuce, which likes the colder weather. I have a bit of cleanup to do first around the raised beds in the back yard. The ice storm left a bit of a mess. So, far, my cleanup has been focused on the front yard. Lots of work to do. Isn't it great?

    Well, I did plant all my veggies March 30th of this year. Everything is coming up except for peppers. I guess it's not hot enough yet for them to pop up. We just had a light freeze here and its rather cool for this area at this time of year. But, its really pretty and nice to work out in. Hopefully, this year's gardens will grow well.
