Any gardeners here ?
I feel quite lucky because my husband enjoys gardening. As a result of his hard work working the soil and planting lettuce, I enjoyed a nice fresh lettuce salad for my supper this evening. He has also planted several kinds of tomatoes, pole beans, sweet peppers and potatoes. I don't like the humidity of Summer, but I sure do love the fresh veggies. Smile

RE: Any gardeners here ?
Guilty. When I am not trying to rule the world with embedded systems and micro controllers, I am planting stuff. Okay that is just my way of saying, "Yes dear, that plant would look great there. Please, I would love to dig a hole in 90 degree weather with 80% humidity. Think nothing of it. I will call you out from your air conditioned abode to inspect my work when I am finished. " Smile

This past weekend we planted a Crimson Red Black Diamond Crape Myrtle, an Agapanthus Full Moon and umm I think it was Imperial Blue Cape Plumbago. Our Caladiums are starting to pop too. We haven't had much luck with veggies because we are swamped with rabbits this time of year. We'll see an increase in bobcats soon. They control the rabbits.

Rabbit stew! Rabbit in Mustard Sauce! Rabbit... OK I will stop now.

I am a veggie gardener. I have about 26 tomato plants this year, lettuce, radishes, salad greens, mint, basils, zucchini, summer squash, cucumbers, herbs of all sorts, onions, garlic, Japanese turnips, pole beans, chilis, and probably lots more that I have forgotten! Yes, I do feed the neighbourhood!

I'm as far from a gardener as you can get. Plants start to wilt if I look at them the wrong way. Laugh-a-lot

Now my husband always grew flowers, and would enter them in the fair and win blue ribbons.

He once grew a sunflower that measured 14.5 feet tall and had to be transported to the fairgrounds on our friends flatbed truck. He also grew Dahlias 8 to 10 inches in width.

My idea of gardening involves Round-Up. (If it don't grow, you don't have'ta mow!) My wife has to put up crime scene tape to keep me from killing her stuff.

Statistics prove that people who have more birthdays live longer.

My husband also plants flowers in the front of our house which faces a 4-lane busy highway. Last year we had someone stop and comment on the beautiful flowers he had growing there. We've lived here 45 years and it isn't very often someone will comment on our nice yard. It is true love that makes my husband plant flowers instead of buying them. I know it makes him feel appreciated when his hard work is recognized.

You would need a LOT of Round-up to kill the grass at our house. We have 1-1/4 acre to mow and it takes two of us 3-4 hours. We can't all be gardeners, I mean - someone has to admire the hard work it takes to have flowers or vegetables.

RE: Any gardeners here ?
These are the turnips:
http://www.mnn.com/food/healthy-eating/b...se-turnips
We eat them radish sized, greens and all.

Pole beans... let me see...
- three kinds of the asian "yard long beans", including a red/purple one, still waiting for a good crop one of these years
- a flat, yellow Italian variety that are excellent with bacon or salt pork, or just steamed with salt and olive oil. I think we might call them a Romano bean
- green romano beans, a couple varieties
- Blue Lake green beans, these are great producers!
- an Italian purple one, round like green beans, not flat like Romano

That is all that I have this year. Last year was a disaster for my beans, hopefully this year will be better.
