    Oh, Icer, what a wonderful lift on a night when snowfall is predicted!

    I just came in and sat down after wrapping 14 individual gifts for gift basket, and one of the things I picked up for my DIL was 4 packets of colorful perennials to plant in the Spring!  Again, we're on the same wave length - - -

    I read abut/saw your baskets...such a treasure it must be to recieve one. I bet the receipts do add up though

    I agree with the loveliness of the inside garden starting to the weather outside right now...

    Icer,
    What lovely Spring pictures. It is almost impossible to think of Spring with the snow, we are getting tonight/tomorrow. But your little plants, tell us that Spring is on it's way. Guess you cannot fool the nature.
    I am happy to say, that our finches seem to be here to stay now. Another promise of better days to come.
    How is your new venture going?

    Out already?  We don't do that 'til Memorial Day, usually.  'Course, we stay colder up here in the hills, by at least 5 degrees.  Hoping for everyone getting bumper crops this year!

    I'm thinking flowers.  May pick up a couple of pots today.  Guess if they're outdoors at the greenhouses, they'll survive our nights now.  May have people picking me up Sat and want a splash of color as they drive up.

    We solorize...it enables us to start the garden about a month before our neighbors

    Tt that splash of color will be most welcoming

    Yeah, I'm thinking particularly at the head of my driveway where I had the yews cut down.  As they turn in, it would be nice for some brightness there.

    Ohhh, that explains it!  How cool (or warm, as the case may be!).  DH bought two 12' x 10' greenhouses at Harbor Freight this year...I think they'll go up for next year's use.  This year, we are beholden to the sun in all its unenhanced glory.

    Nice photos, Icer! Looks like you are going to be quite self-sufficient. What kind of potatoes? Fingerlings or baby Golden Yukon? I am dreaming of them. New from the garden, just scrubbed then steamed and served with butter and lots of parsley. Yummy! Don't need anything to go with them.

    I have read that if you plant some cat-nip near your fruits/vegetables this will encourage many pollenating insects to come visit your garden, resulting in bumper-crops. No idea if it works. If not, at least you get a lot of stoned cats to stroke! :)

    We have planted catnip before but find that the rabbits really like it...on a similiar note...the wild turkeys hate cilantro

    Re: Let the Gardening Begin 2011

    Beautiful radish, Icer. And look at that green top. I read somewhere, that you an actually cook it, like you do any other greens. I wouldn't do the supermarket stuff - only God knows, what is on it - but if you grow it in your garden, I think it would be waste to cut it off and throw it out. Happy Mother's and Radish Day

    A different kind of garden than G.T.'s, but just as beautiful!
