I've nearly stopped buying anything from Walmart, but a few years ago, I purchased some seeds there for 20¢ a package and had good results with them, so today I decided to try some more of those cheap seeds.

I bought 3 kinds of muskmelon seeds, a pack each of Yellow Summer Crookneck Squash, Butternut Squash, Beefsteak Tomato, Sweet Peppers, Bunching Onions, Kohlrabi, Chives, Coriander, and Parsley.

I would like to have your ambition Daniel, but I'm improving this year.  I purchased a urinal and have been drilling holes for the water and drain lines.  Takes time because the guy that built this house 75 years ago used heavy lumber, so the floors are thick and hard to drill through.  Today, I went to town and purchased all the fixtures needed (I hope all) to plumb the urinal.

I would love to have 100 acres, but would not like to have to make a living from it.

Spent over an hour with my farm manager son-in-law yest. I've offered to pay for an extended irrigation system which includes a pond. The farm has original tiling for drainage and is need of replacing, so I'll be covering that, also. Whew! (I'm commenting in this group because organic farming is a big form of gardening!)
He's offered to pay rent which is what is usually done in the corn and soybean land use. But, I've declined because I'm just happy to have a manager in the family. He and my daughter will inherit the land eventually, anyway (100 ac).
I wish I had time to detail all his (our) plans for not only this year, but all the years to follow. We're all thrilled with the prospects. Remember, you can go to Silverthorn farm.com to check it out (Rossville, IN).

In the 20 years in Pocatello, I don't remember ever seeing a hummingbird.

Yeah, my daughter wonders why I still garden when they grow everything I need. It's what you said, Daniel, and more. I just enjoy going straight out to pick what I want, be it asparagus, cilantro, or a tomato. I need to begin plotting my strategy for the upcoming year.

The Psychological benefits of gardening gave me a little push to get out there more this year.  

Last year was a lazy year, but now I've got quite a few seeds, plan on getting more, plan on getting a Pomegranate tree, and a few other things, all of which will push me out the door and bring me all those good gardening benefits.

Daniel, I like what Seed Savers Exchange do, but haven't grown enough of their plants yet to say for sure how much I like them.

Someday, I may start saving seeds like you do, and sending them some.

Daniel, yeah, you're back! I read your onion sprout blog. I never had any luck with onion seeds. Do you plant scallions and such?

Comment by Idaho Spud on January 27, 2017 at 6:57pm

Today I received from Seed Savers Exchange, seeds of 3 kinds of Broccoli, 2 kinds of Peas, Celery, Cauliflower, Lettuce, Tomato, Muskmelon, and Watermelon.
