I saw my first mink yesterday! My SIL's dogs cornered it after chasing it out of the chicken house. Nate had lost some chickens and wondered what was getting them. Well, that particular mink won't be feasting anymore on his chickens. He was feisty. I hated to see it killed, however.

2.3" of recent rain has set me back another week in the garden. Boo hoo.

Haha that would be nice, but we only have a lot of lightning/thunder/rain going on right now.

Brandon, could you send some "southern warmth" north one state (Ind)? I'm eager to get my garden going.

Comment by Brandon on April 3, 2014 at 11:56pm

Well, doesn't hurt to try! Thanks for the welcome!

They say you canr grow okra here but i amtrying anyway. Might have to be in container to warm the soil. Ladt frost here is mid may

Ahh, does it get warm enough to be able to keep them outside where you are? Our frost season is just ending, statistically the 10th of April is the "safe" planting time. I'm in Kentucky.

I soaked my okra seeds overnight in water then planted them in seed starter medium. Germination was good. Its after that I have trouble. Ive been growing one indoors under fl. light. It has flower buds. Kind of puny tho.

I believe it will but I had no success with it from seeds when I tried one year. They never sprouted. I may try okra again this year especially if I can find some seedlings. My wife loves it as well.

Brandon, that's excellent.  Those also sound like great choices for kids.  They grow fast, big, dramatic, and usually not to picky about conditions.

Does  okra grow in your area?  It's my holy grail.  Too cool here for a good crop.
