Re: Who is gardening? It is very therapeutic!
I sit in the night observing my planting. My precious, precious medicines and poisons. I am pleased. It is very therapeutic. All my neighbors are scared of it. Crows and owls don't even go near it. It kills every bug with ten yards.

It's mine. Mine alone. My precious. Garden.

I just can't wait to see how much quality medicinal tincture I can get out of this little plot at summer's end. Very happy with this year's planting. I have stuff in here that could kill a small horse with 5 drops. :-)

One seed for stupid kings under the sky,

One seed for the tard lords in their halls of stone,

Nine for tarded men doomed to die,

One for the tard lord in his oval room;

In the Land of Zone 8A where the shadows lie.

One seed to rule them all, one seed to find them,

One seed to bring them all, and in the darkness bind them;

In the Land of Zone 8A where the shadows lie

 There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable.

There is another theory mentioned, which states that this has already happened.

I have one huge black widow spider that felt comfortable in my garden to spin a web and make her home. So, I'll let her stay.

But nobody else can come in. Just me and my pet black widow.

I will call her Charlotte.

I really should add a little Indian tobacco to the herb garden. It's really helpful for tetanus and other wounds.

Having a little tobacco corner for medicine is never a bad thing.

I like using our new drip irrigation lines. Saves a lot of water
 Quoting: Wild Edibles


Yep. I built an ultra cheapo drip system from the dollar store.

I spent a grand total of 20 bucks on my irrigation system.

I am saving so much water it's absurd.

spent the afternoon putting in a rose garden
 Quoting: Mohican40k

I love roses :)
I have an indoor grow tent; have spinach, spicy Thai basil, and some mung beans.

Just going through the process of taking care of something living like that, and then consuming it and realizing it's all organic; it's been a spiritual experience for me. I feel cleaner in a sense.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 78714195

I am going to try and do spinach and basil before it gets too hot. Otherwise, at least the basil will come indoors.

Remember, what doesn't kill you makes you stronger.

Except for my garden.

My garden will kill you.

Re: Who is gardening? It is very therapeutic!
Garlic is planted in the fall. It needs a cold spell to bulb up correctly. You can plant now, but you'll only really get greens.... (not necessarily a bad thing).

I'm waiting for a stretch of 70+ degree weather to start my grafting for the spring. I'm changing a plum tree with 2 varieties on it to one with 5 varieties as well as a pluot, a peach and an apricot (if I can find the space for it).

I'm also grafting a couple pawpaw varieties this spring.

In my room at work I'm growing butterfly pea (the Latin name alone makes it a curiosity to grow) because I want to drink blue-tea.

I also have kiwis, persimmon,figs, goji, Che, apples, cherries, pawpaws, dozens of different kinds of berries (many of which would be new to you... like schizandra), ramps, medlars, Chinese cinnamon yams, lots more things...

I'm even growing mushrooms.. Wine Caps..

I'm in zone 6b, but with protection I easily grow things from much higher zones...

I put in drip irrigation years back, but the upkeep (due to critters) wasn't worth it. I mostly just water by hand at this point (I'm on less than an eighth of an acre)

Re: Who is gardening? It is very therapeutic!
Life is a magic garden. With wondrous softly shining flowers, but between the flowers there are the little gnomes, they frighten me so much, they stand on their heads, and the worst is, they call out to me that I should also stand on my head, every once in a while I try, and I die of embarrassment; but sometimes the gnomes shout that I am doing very well, and that I'm indeed a real gnome myself after all. But on no account I will ever fall for that.

Re: Who is gardening? It is very therapeutic!
I have been gardening now for 12 years. I am on a city lot with daughter living next door and I use her yard as well.

It is my relaxation and joy. I have had some years I neglect it more than others. I am in an area that growing is a lot easier than other places. I have fruit year round. I have things in both the front and the back, pots and in the ground. I have a green house that has housed a bell pepper, a jalapeño and a Serrano for 4 years. I can’t believe I have kept them alive all this time.

I have the following right now:

Avocado tree - new hope to establish
White nectarine
Grapefruit
2 different orange trees
Lemon
Tangerine
Pear
Peach
Apricot - new in a pot ultra dwarf
Apple
Australian Lime
Bay Leaf
Olive
6 grape varietals
Almond
Raspberries - two varieties
Strawberries

Herbs:

Marjoram
Basil
Oregano
Lemon Balm
Lemon Grass
Lavender - two varieties
Cilantro
Aloe Vera
Watermelon sage

Veggies:

Kale
Swiss chard
Tomatoes
Asparagus beds
Artichoke
Carrots
Crookneck squash

I have had rabbits, quail and chickens. Only have two chickens now. I compost their poop and then fertilize my trees with it. Get two eggs a day.

You learn a lot over time. I find it very enjoyable, a good day is being able to be out there all day. I love knowing I can grow food, dehydrate it, can it.

Good luck to you.

Let's take a deep breath and relax by the plants, you guys. Seriously - this world has gone to absolute shit and I went and sat outside barefoot in my little (beginner's) garden, and I literally FELT my blood pressure go down...I felt my body relax.

So this is my first actual garden. I've grown things here and there, but this is the first time I actually sat down and planned out an actual garden. I saw my first potato sprouts yesterday and squealed with delight. I grew that!

Hi Only Me! Good to see you are still here.

I garden voraciously. Planting peas and green onions soon. Starting squash, both winter and summer varieties, indoors this week also to be ready for planting the end of May.

Will purchase tomato, pepper, eggplant, plants. Working on raised beds for our root veggie this year. Lots going on.
