Barbara, seeds are great! You can do do much and have so many choices. I never get over it.

For some reason my device replaces a with s. Sorry for the typos.

Joan, my mother's aunts grew tomatoes and geraniums in tin cans. Long tradition there. I forgot about that.

I have used plastic food containers quite a bit. But these days I dont get much food in those.

Randy, I have very littke stamina, snd osin snd discomfort are worse. But, I count the days to ending my primary career, and the one solace / comfort for me is gardening. Without puttering meditation, I would be much less happy. I do work on labor saving techniques - lots of mulch, prune judiciously, raised beds.

Randy you reminded me I have some peas to plant.

Spud have you ever let those volunteers grow and bear new squash?

Joan, I had saved the four oclock seeds from last year. I have so thoroughly mulched the beds where they were, I dont know if new ones will come up. I do have some containers that had them last year and those do have seedlings now. I like those flowers, very old-time, fragrant, do-it-yourself flowers.

As usual, Daniel, I'm impressed (and envious). You have quite an operation going. By the way, how's your health nowadays? Do you have the stamina to do all you do?

I  snuck in a row of sugar snap peas before the rains came yest. Hoping to get some lettuce, kale, and other greens in the ground before I leave for two weeks (Danube cruise).

Volunteer squash are always sprouting in my compost.

My experience with squash and four o'clocks is they sprout very easily. In fact, I was surprised Daniel, when you planted four  o'clock seeds. They just come up all over my garden and have for years. 

My grandmothers used tuna cans to start seeds. Wonderful gardeners, both.

Daniel, your peaches really are setting. We continue to have frost at night and will for the rest of the week. Sunday, we expect a bit of snow. This week has been one of graupel, piles of it.  The ground that has a nice new layer of manure was all white this morning.

I'm just happy it is alive and growing!  :)   Maybe fruit next year. I don't know why I'm so surprised, guess I expected it to be harder. We had nice gentle rain and my tomato plant just took off - heirloom currant - suppose to get 6' tall. Hard to imagine. Who knew you could just throw butternut and acorn squash seeds in dirt and they would grow like crazy!.  Yeahhh for mushroom compost!

Barbara, that's right. Most will not bloom twice in one year. But I dont know about citrus. Most figs do get 2 crops a year.

I'm glad to see you here. :-)

Daniel, if a fruit tree blooms but fruit hasn't set does that mean it is done for this year?  It is self-pollinating?  Sort of a 'better luck next year thing"?
