Great tip, Spud, thanks. I've had to get rid of every rose bush I had because the deer and elk were just trashing them the moment they started blooming.

For you peeps that have trouble with deer eating you plants, I just saw a show on the TV show "Growing a Greener World", that showed how to make a small simple fence that fools deer into thinking they can't jump over it.  Here is the video of the show.  The simple fence is at 10 minutes:

Kale and Lettuce like a pH around neutral or slightly acidic.  6-7.5

What pH do cruciferous veggies and lettuce need?
Comment by Randall Smith on December 28, 2014 at 7:36am

Amy, both kale and lettuce thrive in my garden. It's spinach I have trouble with. Your problems could be in the soil pH, although leafy veggies are pretty tolerant. Let's face it, some vegetables are just stubborn. I can't grow melons, either.

Lots of things I don't know Diddly Squat about either.  I think that was a phrase used a lot in California when I lived there.

Not me Amy, but I'll put lettuce on the list to try next year.  My mouth is watering thinking of BLTs.

Have any of yall successfully grown kale or lettuce? I can get then to sprout, but they never get very large. Do you guys have any advice on that?

Thanks Joan.  Inspiring film.  I will begin to my plant trees in a few more days.

I met a gentleman at one of my local meetings and we talked about gardening. Thursday he brought me a well worn baggie full of seeds with no label. He said they were from 'his country'. I think somewhere in Asia. He wouldn't tell me what they were just that it was edible, said it was a surprise. I guess I'll be introducing a "non-native" to my garden. Will be fun to see IF they grow and if they do, what they are.  

I believe most of the gardeners on this site know a tad more than "diddly" ... plant on!
