Usually by now, I can gather chives. But it's been so cold, nothing but  garlic is poking through. Forecast high today--28. Last year, 80. Ugh.

How exciting to be growing food for twelve years from a few starts.  Joan- I loved your sentiment... so very true. 

I have a pole bean question: what types of support have worked best for all of you?  I am growing three kinds of beans this year, as it's a new garden and I thought it would be good for the soil.  My dragon tongue beans are bush beans and need no support, but I am also growing Cherokee Trail of Tears Beans.  I have planted Bolita beans as well.  Everything I've read about them is that there are both pole and bush varieties... and I have no idea which type I planted.  I wonder what to look for to know if I must stake them?  I am enjoying watching my seeds grow into plants and look hardier each day!

Today we stopped by the kitchen garden and got these.  First vegetables of the year for us.  These were planted in September and over-wintered in the raised beds.  Egyptian Walking Onions.  It's fun thinking I've been raising them from a few starts bought 12 years ago from

Sentinent, spring is always a good time for gardners. You will get well soon.

Joan, nice observation. I never saw them that way. Although set of spines of each side emerge at different times from central growth point still nature maintains the symmetry somehow.

Hope you are fully fit as soon as possible Sentinent. I will love to see you back.

Just saying hello and thinking of you. I like the thought of you in the garden.

No praying but thinking of you! I hope you'll be back in your garden soon!

Comment by Daniel W (Sentient Biped) on March 18, 2013 at 7:47pm

Thank you all.  Sincerely.

After I got back from the surgeon today I did some work-from-home work, then pulled some weeds in the bearded iris beds.  Gives peace of mind.  They are looking very sturdy now.  Promising for great flowers in May.

Sentient- I will be thinking of you Tuesday and hope that all goes well.  May your doctors be brilliant and your body recover quickly! 

Even though I don't post as often as I'd like, this group is so valuable to me- both for the information and the sense of community.  Thank you for all you do to keep it so successful.
