It's time for my first planting of peas.  Just need to get outside.

 Randy, I don't have your reason for not getting out there.  My temperatures have been in the 30s at night, and 40s in the day.

 The forecast for the coming week is 10-27 at night, and 33-44 in the day.  That still shouldn't keep me from planting peas.

As usual, I'm envious of all of you lucky enough to be able to get a early start to gardening. It's zero with 5-6" of more snow forecast to add to the already white ground. My patience is tested!

Nice gardening start Chris.

Comment by Joan Denoo on February 27, 2015 at 11:05am

Chris, I am so excited for you. It is time for me to start, although we continue to have freeze and thaw outside. I am putting my hope in a tranquil spring.

I opened my gardening season - starting on the window sill. I tried to put aside my anger about the destruction at Nineveh, and now I have a window sill full of plastic containers. I sowed broccoli, garlic chives, turnip greens, celery, parsley, dill, kohlrabi and thyme. Tomorrow I'll shop for new outside containers.

I've heard ivy can be destructive to homes.

Comment by Idaho Spud on February 25, 2015 at 4:40pm

In Concord California, my last house had ivy over the front.  I noticed it took paint off the windowsills when removed, and also took little chunks of brick off.  I didn't get rid of it because of that, and also I liked eating the snails that populated it.

I have areas overrun with English ivy too. I try to keep it contained, and I don't mind the look of it either. I'm hoping it will eventually take down a couple of ugly alder trees.

Ivy (of some sort) has taken over my yard. It grows up trees, my porch, everywhere. I hate spraying week killer, so what are you gonna do? At least I don't have to mow it--and it's green!

Comment by Joan Denoo on February 24, 2015 at 11:03pm

If kudzu were not so invasive, it would certainly provide mulch. Sad. but no one wants to let it get started. The same with Virginia Creeper. I bought some compost several years ago to use in my south garden and I have to do a daily tour and pull out the new growth. I hope I got it all last year. 

I wonder if goats will eat it. Would their digestive process kill the starts? It would be great to have goats and kudzu live in an erosion gully and have all that fertilizer. Do you think that would work? If so, just think of how nice it would be to recover all those eroded pieces of ground.
