    Small garden this year as I taking off for a month or so. Ordered non gmo seeds from a pickney fundraiser and peat free starter pods... when the snow melt off the deck will set up my "greenhouse" and take it inside.

    we have not started anything.

    first we have to clear the yard of winter debris and leftover snow
    we have raised garden boxes and will probably plant the usual tomatoes, cucumbers, strawberries, lettuce, callaloo comes back on its own (bugs love them)

    We have lettuce and basil in pots in the window waiting for warmer weather

    Mommy peppers and callaloo sprouting up, she has to replant her tomatoes since the squirrel them had a field day with them.

    I started a herb garden with chocolate mint, spicy mint, sage, oregano,thyme,and lavender.

    I need to clear out one section to plant sorrell. Also have to spread down some cayenne pepper to keep away the stray cats my neighbor keeps feeding.

    Very funny Blackstar

    For my area, around May 1 is the best time to begin planting annuals outside. Yesterday I put in two plants each of tomato, cucumber, sweet pepper and one plant of Cuban habanero. I had already planted pots of thyme, Italian parsley, sage, rosemary, and basil. Oregano and chives come up each year in the same planters. I got a late start on callaloo and scotch bonnet from seed so I am hoping I can put seedlings in the ground in a few weeks.

    I put in flowering petunias, trailing ivy, and spike plants into patio planters. The clematis I put in last year are blooming up a storm and growing up on to posts from large pots. I bought two large holly bushes yesterday to add to my years-long effort to create an evergreen backyard privacy fence. I have to get them in the ground over the weekend.

    Saw Ms Exced post and remembered I planted a clump of lavender near the mint. Also planted a small eucalyptus out of curiosity.
