    Fig Bush

    Cooky, I live in South Carolina. The weather here is very close to what Florida has, very hot and humidity is awful! We have mild winters. Today was 80 degrees. Tomorrow the high will be in the 60's. It snows here about every 5 years and only a few inches and it's gone in the next 2 days if that...

    What's the weather in your area? 2021 Edition

    We have snow that sticks about every 3 or 4 years and then it don't last very long, couple of days and it's gone. The most I ever saw here was around 16 inches. I'm in South Carolina. We have long very hot summers and mild winters. I wouldn't mind a little snow instead of this rain we have right...

    SEEDLINGS ARE STARTED! Which way do you guys prefer? I have 3 ways here...

    You are right Don. I actually left them a little too long but I repotted them into deeper, single cups and they are looking great! Thanks. :)

    I kinda do the second. I have tomatoes planted under a light now. I think I need to pot them now as they are getting too tall.

    Fig Bush

    Hey Ron! I think you may see me here more often now. :) I was told they are Common figs. It looks like March may be frost free for SC. Yes, I do need to get them potted ASAP. I'll try and do that tomorrow and just keep them inside for awhile. Long time ago I had a little one off my Mom's bush...

    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... is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to
