Figs look yummy Sentient! I have grape vines in my yard, they usually yield bunches of grapes. Even though I have native Mustang grapes they aren't yielding as much as last year due to the heat and drought we are having. But, we actually got a little rain today!

Cherries, pears, and apple are blooming! So are the tulips and daffodils! Really to chlly here to set out tomatoes but Ive set up protection for some with "wall-o-water" shelters and plastic cloches. Ahh Spring! My tomato plants are 6 inches tall, need to go outside soon.

Getting to be time to start tomatoes and peppers inside. Not sure if I will this year.... Been lazy. Still the benefits are tremendous. Maybe I'll get out last year's seeds. Should still be good. 6 peppers and 6 tomatoes should be doable..... :-)

I'm trying to think of something more energy intensive... maybe if they used incandescent lights instead of sunshine? I suppose, though, farm tractors would also use a lot of energy.

Michael, orchids are no more addictive than heroin or cocaine.  Once you have rebloomed one, however, you're hooked.  In your area, Cymbidiums might have problems - they require cool nights all year, and  enjoy winter weather into the 40s.  You might do better with some others, there are thousands and thousands of varieties and many are tropical or near-tropical.


Liking plants that keep on giving....  figs are increadibly easy to propagate.  I stick prunings into the soil and the often take root and grow into trees.  Grapes are similar.  I don't know - in your area muscadines might be better?


One of my limitations is late frost.  The warm weather lures out the flowers, they all bloom, then frost kills them.  In some cases, that's even fatal for the tree.  Bummer.   


Over the past week, I've thinned my raspberries and pruned them.  I planted seeds of winter-tolerant greens, radishes, onions.  Those are in containers.  They'll come up with the weeds, and that way I get them really early.  Tropicals like tomatoes and peppers are months away.  I can only dream.
