Hi Chris, I just do a little bit each day and you are so right about it helping with the mood.  I like that you are gathering things for your garden - especially the things 'gifted' to you by friends. I just love those things I get that way as they seem to mean more than the things I can simply buy.

Thanks Joan.  Yes, doing better. For some reason my system is really sensitive to amount of water I drink and if I don't get enough I suffer from a bone-grinding fatigue/depression, which becomes like a vicious circle. Two days of heavy drinking is helping. (Water drinking that is). :)  Now to pay attention and keep it up.

Daniel, all those lovely fruit trees ... sighhh. Once producing, you will be giving away fruit by the buckets.

Randall, hard to imagine you are still a month away from Spring weather.  We had winter for a couple of weeks and are now headed for summer as our nights are holding in the low 60's.  My first order of business this morning is to make a run to Lowe's for pvc pipe to create a sunscreen for my bunnies out of 'coolarama' cloth, and am going to use the pipe for a frame.

Spud, I agree about our aging tastebuds - everything seems bland. Couldn't live without salsa or pico de gallo! (';')

Hope they get a decent settlement.

Great to see Barbara's comment! We've missed you. As for my goji bush, I only planted it last year. Haven't seen any buds yet. But my blueberry bushes and gooseberry bush are sprouting! Whew.

Oh how I envy Daniel and his blooming trees. I'm at least another month away from seeing that.

I've been enjoying greenhouse spinach from my SIL the past several weeks. Nate and Emily did secure a $100,000 loan from the bank. Much of the money is going towards fertilizer. He had the soil tested all over 40 acres and found it to be totally deficient in the necessary minerals required for organic vegetables. Years of "corn and beans" has really depleted the soil. He plans to use some of the money to buy seeds, fruit trees, and livestock. We're all hoping this well be a good year.

By the way, remember when 5 acres of their crops were inadvertantly "crop dusted" the year before last? It looks like the company that sprayed them are willing to settle up. No court battle. They all meet April 28th. Fingers crossed.

I don't think my 73 year old sense of taste is sensitive enough anymore to appreciate blueberries.

I agree about the critters.  If they would just leave me 50%, I wouldn't mind them.

Yes Joan, I plan on building it myself.  But if I had the money, I would definitely buy it.

I feel the same way about having someone else do the work.

Oh! That is too bad about the Pomegranate. Have you thought of patio blueberries? They make delicious snacks if you can get them before the squirrels and birds. Cary just planted three more for me this past week, hoping to get a few berries myself. I want the critters to eat them; I just wish they were a little more generous. I want the critters to come.

Comment by Joan Denoo on March 29, 2015 at 2:25pm

Spud, your plans sound terrific! I like the idea of the Pomegranate and having a place to winter it.  A small greenhouse? Oh! My heart jumps at the thought. Will you build it yourself?

Comment by Joan Denoo on March 29, 2015 at 2:21pm

I would buy it in a minute, Spud, if I had someone who was able and willing to cart it in and outside for me. I don't want to have plants that require someone else to do the work. I don't have canna, for example.

Hi Barbara.  Enjoyed hearing about your garden.

Comment by Plinius on March 29, 2015 at 11:20am

You're right Joan, it's about 6 bft today; we get a lot of fresh air!
