Beverly, sorry about your restriction, but looking forward to your results.  I've heard about window gardening, but never tried it.

Comment by Idaho Spud on December 29, 2013 at 2:31pm

I've received 4 physical catalogs in the last month.  Didn't order any of them, so that's a strike against them.  Besides that, I hardly looked at them.  The internet has a much better selection.  

Haven't ordered anything yet, or even started looking.  I've still got time.  Haven't I?

Randall watch out!  Those catalogs can be seductive!  

Thanks for the encouragement about Spring.  So near, but so far!  

With the internet, I don't wait for catalogs.  I bought seeds already via internet.  I'm such a sad case!  :-)

For me the attraction is I can research varieties for short cool season, which we have here.  The nurseries are hit and miss.  I think some of their plants are grown in California and brought here, so not suitable.  They are also into nationally suitable hybrids, again maybe not as good for my climate.  I may well be wrong, but that's my thought process.

Plus those online catalogs are so interesting!

Received my first seed catalogue the other day. Perused through it to get the juices flowing. Pretty devious, if you ask me, for those companies to incite a riot of the mind. Nevertheless, I haven't bought anything from them in years. I go to a local nursery. Not nearly the variety--nor the temptation! Hang in there, garden lovers. Spring is just around the next curve.

Got the soil analysis.  Moved it to a separate discussion, in case anyone is interested.  Now that I have a lab analysis, I feel like I can be more scientific in my gardening.  The report changes the plans significantly.

Comment by Daniel W on December 24, 2013 at 5:47pm

Spud, I think it produces a lot better result with some cuttings.  I've used the powdered rooting hormone and the liquid, and none.  Every plant variety is different.  Some don't benefit at all - willow, forsythia, christmas cactus.  Some are pretty easy without it, but I think they do better, or faster,  with it - figs, roses, buddleia, grapes.  Some I don't think I can get to root without it - plum, laburnum.  Some things are so easy I've never tried rooting hormone - geraniums, grapes. 

I don't know how long it keeps.  I'm using a package I bought last year.

Daniel, does the Dip-and-Grow produce better results than using nothing?

Comment by Daniel W on December 24, 2013 at 4:13pm
Randall that sounds interesting. I should give it a try.
Comment by Randall Smith on December 24, 2013 at 8:38am

Wow--a lot of effort in making kraut! But cool, Daniel!  As far as freezer slaw, easy. Slice cabbage, carrots, pepper (I add tomatoes). Pour boiled vinegar/sugar liquid (with mustard and celery seed) over, and freeze in containers. I love it.

Chris, wonderful idea, and perfect site for such an endeavor. May I suggest Daniel's airlock picture for the chapter heading of fermentation and pickles?
