I think you're right, Sentient, the peas will survive the frost and if I'm lucky the beans too - they came from a packet that said they were good for early growing. Haven't seen any rabbits yet. 

Not all cats enjoy catnip, but you could try valerian.

Amer, fig trees are so easy to grow from cuttings, many methods work.  I like to to give them an early start.  So I treat them special.  Mine get a warm location, on a heating mat or a warm shelf.  They will also root at normal room temperature.  Or even in the garden soil.

Spud, glad to hear it!  Spring is on the way!

Beautiful fig Sentient.

Warm enough here to get my lazy self outside and doing yard-work for the last 3 days.  Yay!   Still haven't started any plants, but will in the next few days.

The fig cutting growth looks very healthy Sentinent, how you provided them light and temperature. Was it consistant incubation or they were placed in some warm and well lit place like window with temperature ups and downs?

Chris,

The peas should survive, I think.  Peas are pretty cold tolerant and should handle a frost.  My snow peas made it through frost.  Is that why they are "snow" peas?  Un fortunately they did not make it through marauding bunny rabbits.  So will need to replant.

Beans are more of a warm weather plant.  I hope they will do well too!

Joan, I hope the cat enjoys the catnip.  It's really fun to watch them get 'high' on it.  The cat who lives with me (can't call her "my" cat - more like I'm "her" human) ignores it.

A real joy to see such healthy plants coming up. I look forward to their progression. 

Snow is all gone from my planting boxes, just a few tiny little piles back in the bird area. 

A most handsom Siamese cat showed up a week or so ago, beautiful coat and color, a little twist at the end of his tail, and he seems to be a good mouser. I think I shall bring a pot of catnip up close to the house hoping to entice him away from the bird section.

They're beautiful, Sentient! You must be very good at this sort of gardening; it's a joy to follow your progress!

Here we had a week of night frost just when everybody is ready for spring - I wonder if the peas and beans I planted will survive. If not, I'll do better next year, and a second batch of peas and beans is already above ground - inside of course...

Fig cutting progress. 

This was a winter gardening effort.  Start a bunch of fig trees.  They are not ready for outdoors yet.  Most are growing very nicely now.  Vigorous top growth means the roots are also growing well.

 

 

This one was a bit jump started compared to the rest. It had a tiny root due to the branch being under the compost mulch. Many of the other cuttings are growing fast now too.

Sentient, all our effort to bring coffee grounds into the garden is paying off! Good for you.

Farmers Who Commit Totally to Sell Locally Can Make a Profit

This is encouraging news indeed. Just imagine freshly picked fruits and vegetables in season from local farm to restaurants and grocery stores. I still like the farmer's markets best, and with increased uses by other markets, we all get better availability.
