    When fruits and veggies go rogue

    It will be white on the inside when ready. I'm still up in the air on this as all citrons I have ever seen had a smooth outside like a watermelon. Not my pic but this is what we had.

    When fruits and veggies go rogue

    I should have known that! It has been many years since I'd seen a citron! My Dad planted huge vegetable gardens and here and there a citron would grow. We didn't know where they came from! My mom said you could make preserves with them but she never bothered. They have no taste, at least not a...

    You gonna start something?

    I did start something early and I'm going to spill the beans on him. I planted tomato seeds inside the first week of February. It was an experiment for me, just a box with soil, set up with good drainage under a light. Anyway, the middle of March the plants were beautiful and about 5 inches...

    What are you spring plans?

    What are you spring plans?

    A couple years ago I had sciatica and back problems so bad I was in a wheel chair for most of that Spring and Summer. I'm just getting to the point I can get down and dig in the dirt again and looking forward to it. I've just started cleaning up the past years of mess from weather and neglect. I...

    Shiitake mushrooms

    It would be my luck that a bad stray mushroom would grow in there. There was a news article a week ago about dogs eating mushrooms that was growing in the yard and got sick. As much as I love mushrooms, I think I need to leave the growing to people like you that know which is what with them. :)

    Hello to old members

    I know, missing a few and it's bittersweet. Good to be back but missing those like Curbie, Mariposa, and Rosie. Not sure if the last 2 came here with us but they were the first I met in gardening forums and became close with. They will never be forgotten.

    knockout roses

    I've moved and planted roses all during the summer and as long as I kept them watered well, had no problems.
