Re: Now What Do I Do?

I always start 2 or 3 seeds of each variety, and separate them when there are 2 sets of leaves. (That’s my goal anyway lol!) I save the strongest for my garden and the others go to neighbors and coworkers. I grow about 45 varieties of tomatoes plus peppers, beans and eggplant during my warm season. ...

Re: Which Varieties Exceeded Your Expectations?

A few years ago I grew Lime Green Salad and was shocked both at how good it tasted and how prolific it was. Last year I decided to grow Green Bee instead. Completely different growth habit, but the flavor and texture...I just love it. I put in 4 plants this year. I always grow Carbon and Solar Flare...

Re: Winter Tomatoes in Fl. (Plus veggies)

Just incredible production from Juliet; now if only they tasted like Sun Golds, lol! I just found an aphid infestation on one of the ornamental cabbage in a container on the patio. I confess I didn’t check for lady bug nymphs. Straight into the yard waste bin. It was about 30 ft. away from the tomat...

Re: Around the yard, it's green!!!!!

Do you thin the fruit on any of your citrus trees? I’m looking at an explosion of lemons and limes and wondering if I should thin. It will take a lot of time when there’s so many other gardening chores to do.

Re: Toilet Paper Rolls

I have birds, so the rolls get used up as bird toys. Just put between the bars and the large birds tear them to shreds. Or thread them on a perch and the small birds nibble away at them. Or put a treat in them, and fold down the edges so you have a package that rattles; the large parrots use these ...

When they got too tall for the lights they had to sit in the house for a few days; a real hassle. However, now that that par...

Unfortunately, mine, so far, has displayed no sense. Sigh. I’m listening to other governors and doing what they say.
