Planting, planting, planting!

I am planting! Vegetables, flowers, shrubs!

Mostly veggies right now, with a few flower seeds, and I have relocated some shrubs that have looked bad for awhile. Actually, EVERYTHING has looked bad for a long while! I cannot stand it any longer.

We have cabbages and cauliflower, and broccoli, peas, and onions. That is all the winter stuff that I will eat, and I have decided that I don't have enough time to take care of things we won't eat.

In a couple of weeks, I will set tomatoes in the ground, with lettuces, and beans. In about 3 weeks I will plant squash, cucumbers and zuchinni. In a month, or 6 weeks, I will plant peppers and okra. That is all I am going to grow. I love to eat all of that stuff.

AND...zinnias! I am going to put zinnia seeds in at mid-March. They are my favorites!

I am still doing 'pottree', as the guy from Louisianna says. He is a fabulous potter, so he can say it any way he wants to say it.

I took a 4 day workshop back in January, and had a ball. Learned to throw BIG pots, in 3 pieces, sculpted the ugliest lady you ever saw, and learned Raku! from the 'Pottree' guy. And I learned that I love handbuildings! I am having a great time.

It felt so good to have my hands in the dirt again.

Hi Janie! I thought you ran away girl. LOL! It is so good to be planing and getting those hands dirty again.

Hey, great to see you again. I thought last winter did you in. I can hardly wait to see what you are up to!

I'm wanting to see some of those big pots you are making... my neighbors do stuff like that... no planting around here yet, though. We decided last year that we're getting too old to have much of a garden. So good to hear from you again!!

Hey Janie!

Down here in Rockport things are starting to warm up and I'm seeing hinks of "color" here and there! I'm hoping that I didn't lose too many plants. Check out our bog when you get a chance for some good herb information.

I would love to see some of the pottree!

You have the right idea about gardening.....grow what you like. It is too much work to waste precious time and ground to the rest.
