Oh, I am not saying anything bad about it. Just that they dry out fast. Good for you for growing your own foods.

I know but I live in an apartment building where I have a terrace which is part of the roof of the garages. My flat is on the first floor so I have no way to have anything in the ground.

Pots are good but I have found they dry out quick if you don't watch it.

Oh it is so nice to see someone post here. I live on five acres and raise chickens and have an organic farm. I grow everything I can for my area.

I see this topic isn't used much, but I am an avid gardener, especially of herbs and native plants. We moved to a two acre place (back half wooded) in 2014, our first non-suburban house since we've been married, 54 years now.

I have a brand new herb bed (will take pictures later), and so have tons of work, all fun things.

I'm presently taking a wild-crafting class (Missouri has fantastic native plants), and made my own sassafras tea this past week, which was delicious.

Just found this team today, so looking forward to the exchange of information.

My man has the green thumb and does all the gardening. I am a great harvester!
We have a generous ground garden, 3 above ground planters and lots of barrels. Arugula has been prolific for weeks now, the beets and carrots are nicely showing their greens, Onions have been pickable for weeks and next we (he) will plant tomatoes, peppers, romanesque zucchini and various beans and basil. Mint just keeps coming back too. I LOVE this season.

It is great exercise and the food you can grow is better than the store bought stuff.

I have the garden almost planted which has 6 above ground boxes that are 4ft X 12ft X 2ft. And weeding in the Blueberry Patch and putting the netting over it. Composting the Raspberries and strawberry boxes which are 12ft X 12ft X2ft. And we have 4 more garden boxes to build that are 4ft X 12ft X 2 ft high and 1 garden box that is 10ft X 10ft X 2ft. It is all filled with organic soil

We have graded the ground in the orchard what consist of 18 assorted fruit trees and now we are planting grass in that area.
Spring cleaning, 2 of the Chicken run areas.

And making my flower spots all over the Yard.

This is a very busy time of the year for me.

What is on your garden list of to do's!
