It may take up to 3 weeks to see the tiniest seedlings. Depends on the soil temperature and moisture.

Patience is needed for carrots. I mix my seeds with sand, then disperse in a 6" row. After germination, thinning is usually necessary. Good luck!

Do I grow carrots? Yes. Parsnips, too, although they're difficult. Why do you ask?

What do we grow in Idaho?  Potatoes, hay, wheat, sugar beets, and mormons.

What do I grow?  Blackberries, raspberries, strawberries, watermelon, peas, beet greens, asparagus, onion, garlic, and herbs.  If I had more room, I would grow just about everything.

Yes, a gardner.  The most enjoyable thing in the world.

Nothing much eill grow nder a walnut tree. If I had more room and was younger I would plant black walnuts. Or try to make a hybrid black / english to get more of the black flavor but easier to crack. that may not be possible

My dad was enthusiastic about them long ago.  I don't remember if I ever ate them or not.  We also had black walnuts.  I like them much more than the English walnuts, but it's a lot of work getting out the nut meat.

That's too bad.  We've lost a lot of trees to Chestnut blight, Dutch Elm Disease, and others.  I hate to lose another species.

I think monkey puzzle trees have a narrow range they can grow in.  Something similar to maritime climates, mild and not too hot, not too cold.  They grow here.  I've seen some beautiful ancient specimens.  But mine died.

My dad grew a butternut tree.  They have them at Raintree nursery.  I don't know much a out them otherwise.  

I have grafted apples and pears.  I used root stock that grew originally as suckers from other grafted trees of the same species.  i'm saving some maple volunteers to use as rootstock for nice established varieties of maples, but that is a project for later.  Grafting season is over for this year.  Budding can be done in summer, so I might try my hand at that if things go ok.

Those sound like great choices.  The oak has meaningful symbolism for you, and the pine gives you pleasure.  Very good.

 

For some reason I like pine more than fir or spruce, even though they all have a scent.  I like the shape of the pine tree and the appearance of the wood, better.

1. Ginkgo biloba. because they are a beautiful living fossil, around in the time of dinosaurs. Ginkgos are durable and easy to grow from seeds. I have started many.

2. Tilia americana or Tilia cordata. Lindens. The americana because it was on my street growing up. The cordatas because the have a rich European heritage. Lindens provide nectsr and pollen for expecially good honey. There are also fossil tilia leaves.

3. Monkey Puzzle although my efforts to grow one failed.

4. Most other trees too.

What about yours?

Yes I am a tree lover. Ive grown them from seeds, cuttings, grafts. I've transplanted and nurtured volunteer tree seedlings. I've bought and planted a fair number as well. Ive argued against removing a couple of trees.

I ask because I started a few in peat pods inside this year first time they are growing like weeds roots crossing from one to another and many are starting to bud

I don't actually grow marigolds, per se. They just seem to reseed and do their own thing--in the ground and in pots. They're supposed to repel the garden bad guys. That's debateable.

Hello and welcome fellow Hoosier! Not many of us around these parts. I live between Frankfort and Rossville (out in the country). I've been to Rockville several times. You must like gardening since you joined "Godless...". Other than that, what do you do?
