Posted on 11/30/2012 10:59:19 AM PST by greeneyes
The Weekly Gardening Thread is a weekly gathering of folks that love soil, seeds and plants of all kinds. From complete newbies that are looking to start that first potted plant, to gardeners with some acreage, to Master Gardener level and beyond, we would love to hear from you.
This thread is non-political, although you will find that most here are conservative folks. No matter what, you wont be flamed and the only dumb question is the one that isnt asked.
It is impossible to hijack the Weekly Gardening Thread ... there is no telling where it will go and that is part of the fun and interest. Jump in and join us!
Zone 8; Texas Hill Country.
It’s 77°F at 4:30 in the afternoon as I sit here writing this. :)
Nice pic, BTW :)
Thanks for the link.
The Seed Catalogs continue to roll in from across the country. I’ll have to take a peek at a couple tonight...
Well, I’ll be. I haven’t received a single one. Guess I am gonna have to visit some websites and make a request to get them going, usually they send them without all that.
Good Morning greeneyes. Thanks for keeping us together. I need to remove some akorns from one of my raised gardens. They are thick, so will sieve them out. Then a layer of compost and plant some carrots and other winter things. We’re going to harvest some collards from the community garden, cook and freeze some. He loves mustard greens, collards, spinach and all that stuff, cooked southern style.
Not only that, they are perinnels. I understand in Mexico they can look like trees. Interesting. This year, they are going in pots, when “cold” weather comes, I’ll put them in the garage. I have on tomato ripening. lol. Me and tomatoes, just don’t get along.
You are welcome. Bet he likes polk salad greens too. We have it growing all around the walnut tree and taking up half of the garden.
Since nothing else grows that close to the walnut tree, we leave them there. Hubby fixes a mess of them once in a while. I have never developed a liking, though too bitter for me.
My problem with tomatoes is that they don’t ripen quick enough to eat with spring lettuce, and they are kinda finicky about cool weather and growing indoors doesn’t always work.
This summer I am going to start some in late summer/fall in pots,and bring in the pots after they have tomatoes started and about the size of a marble, see how that works.
Still eating on the fall harvest of ripened tomatoes and enjoying everyone, but going to have to make a salsa or something soon. Maybe I’ll make some juice or ketchup just to see how my recipes I collected would taste.
I don’t know what polk looks like. I understand it is a wild green.
