How to spruce up your yard!
I'm reaching frustration level-I had carpel tunnel surgery on both hands and there's all this stuff to do outside. But the daffodils started blooming on Saturday and they are oh-so-lovely. Forsythia and magnolias are blooming as well. This is just crazy.
Crocuses are coming up here! Suddenly realizing I haven't ordered my seeds to start yet...
so glad my daffodils are coming up, love the feel of spring coming around the corner. love the change in seasons
Lol, Sentient. Tacomaria - burritojesus.
Green thumbs of the future. lol
That's quite a lovely plant! I've only just gotten interested in orchids myself, and I'm a bit reluctant to get into it too much, as I've been told they're addictive.
I wish I could grow cherries, but we don't really get enough chilling hours for most varieties, only last week it got over 60 degrees. However, apriums and apricots I should be able to do here. I think plums have become my favorite fruit though, they taste wonderful, and at least for me they prove almost impossible to fail. Plus, with all the suckers they put out, I get plenty of free trees to expand!
One of my favorite things about plants, is they're definately the gift that keeps on giving.
I'm new to both AtheistNexus, and to this group, and while I've joined several groups, this one will probably make up most of my activity on the site, as I'm a complete botany/agriculture addict.
I live just south of Atlanta, so I'm in a great region to grow just about anything (except for moisture/heat haters like pistachio trees and potatoes.)
In addition to growing outdoors, I'm currently renovating my garage to include an entire grow room for winter growing, and early seed starts to get a jump on things, and so far buying a light has been a great investment!
I'm attempting to grow some tropical fruit plants, such as guava and soursop, but I'd like to look into growing a vanilla orchid, and possibly a kava plant......if I can ever obtain a cutting.
I've also begun a backyard orchard, though it's only in it's second year now, with 2 fig trees, 2 apple trees, a native plum, Belle of Georgia peach, and several white pomegranate cuttings I took last fall. Since I live in a subdivision with only an acre total to work with, I'm interested in space saving measures, particularly espalier for some of my fence planted trees. Any advice on that is greatly appreciated!
Hope to hear from some of you, and thanks for having me!
