I feel kind of bad about the mink.  But I am also not fond of the animals that eat my plants and animals, so I understand.

Rain is rotting my irises.  Darwin at work, even though I don't want that to happen.  

Loren posted about LED lights on a different forum.  I finished my CFL plant light project a couple of weeks ago and have peppers, four o'clocks, figs, and ginger growing under it happily.  The hardest part was choosing the light warmth.  Decided on daylight.  If I read Loren's article sooner, I might have chosen LED in daylight range.  Even so, the plants look pretty happy.

completed project


I planted some peppers in a covered raised bed as an experiment. Plus I needed the room under the lights.

Next: time to start tomato seedlings.

I saw my first mink yesterday! My SIL's dogs cornered it after chasing it out of the chicken house. Nate had lost some chickens and wondered what was getting them. Well, that particular mink won't be feasting anymore on his chickens. He was feisty. I hated to see it killed, however.

2.3" of recent rain has set me back another week in the garden. Boo hoo.

Haha that would be nice, but we only have a lot of lightning/thunder/rain going on right now.

Comment by Randall Smith on April 4, 2014 at 7:29am

Brandon, could you send some "southern warmth" north one state (Ind)? I'm eager to get my garden going.

Comment by Brandon on April 3, 2014 at 11:56pm

Well, doesn't hurt to try! Thanks for the welcome!

They say you canr grow okra here but i amtrying anyway. Might have to be in container to warm the soil. Ladt frost here is mid may
Comment by Brandon on April 3, 2014 at 11:36pm

Ahh, does it get warm enough to be able to keep them outside where you are? Our frost season is just ending, statistically the 10th of April is the "safe" planting time. I'm in Kentucky.

Comment by Daniel Wachenheim on April 3, 2014 at 10:59pm
I soaked my okra seeds overnight in water then planted them in seed starter medium. Germination was good. Its after that I have trouble. Ive been growing one indoors under fl. light. It has flower buds. Kind of puny tho.
Comment by Brandon on April 3, 2014 at 10:48pm

I believe it will but I had no success with it from seeds when I tried one year. They never sprouted. I may try okra again this year especially if I can find some seedlings. My wife loves it as well.
