Spud, the wet winter and cool summer results in excellent growth of moss and mold.    We have slugs that are damn near world records.  This year has been stranger than usual, with some unusual highs.  Last winter had a record cold.

I don't mind.  It's a challenge for me because I didn't grow up here, so I don't have a tradition of growing things here.  Each year I say "This is the year I'm going to learn to grow....(fill in the blank).  So I learn.  Or sometimes, I learn it can't be done the way I tried.

As of now, the tomatoe seedlings are in the raised beds.  Yay!  Snowpeas are in bloom.  Garlic is the best looking I've grown.  Potatoes are growing.  Peppers are in bloom.  I really nurtured the pepper seedlings this year, under lights.  Something is eating the potato leaves.  Maybe slugs.  Sprinkled organic slug bait around them.  If it's potato beetle or something like that, I'll have to let them do their thing.

King, have a great time at ISU!  

Randy, glad you got some snow peas growing.  Snow peas are great!

Randy, on average, it looks like you get almost 4 times as much rain as I do, and your temperatures are about the same.

Daniel, the temperatures you report sound very high for Washington, so I looked-up your averages.  You get 4 times as much rain as I do and your low winter temperatures are about 16 degrees higher than mine, but my average high summer temperatures are about 7 degrees higher.

That's it King. Just like the first photo showed.

I rushed to get my garden seeds planted before impending rains. Then I got 4" of rain and temps no higher that 50 for four days. The only thing doing reasonably well are snow peas. Discouraging. But a warm-up is on the way.

King, some of those stinkhorns do look like carrots.  There are some weird and gross types.  Don't think I've ever seen one.

Irises will grow like a weed here the lady that lives behind us asked if I would remove some for her she never did anything to them they were going over each other very hard to remove I took them and half way planted them 3/4 took root and are growing very well I bought a few and planted them lost all but about 1in of one and it is now full sized has yet to flower but hopeful for this year

Beautiful, Daniel. However, I never really liked the scent of irises. I have some purple and yellow ones, too.

K.K.: Sorry, can't help you. Perhaps you've discovered a new species!

Daniel, these are absolutely gorgeous! An outstanding collection. Oh! your bench, flowers, and verdant green look so inviting. A nice glass of homemade lemonade, a dog or two, and you are in paradise!
