you all got me concerned now, i should repot some. i can't just throw away any of them at this point, you know, each rose is unique and special to me.. err.. pepper.. i gave away 4 plants, maybe i'll pull some more.
with the lack of space especially i should've made an early selection of the seedlings like the experts say, but i didn't want to kill any of them, not after they've gone through the effort of sprouting.. i suck at the fascist part of gardening, i'll do better next season

It's hard for me to thin seedlings, too. Even though I feel it's mostly bunk, "The Secret Life of Plants" really messed with my head.

That's an awesome setup barney.

I'm about to plant some common milkweed. Does anyone have any experience with it? Supposed to be a great monarch butterfly host.

ahem...I must confess that my wife should take the majority of the credit. Partly due to time constraints on my part to be honest.

I notice today that we have a single half ripened strawberry. I will prep it for a photography session at the weekend and will post for your delectation and critical appraisal.

It has rained the last couple of days and the strawberries are responding positively. I have high hopes of an initial crop (I estimate approximately 3 no. individual fruits) by the end of the weekend.

BTW one of our blueberry plants has been maliciously attacked by a bird and/or squirrel. I suspect the squirrel having seen it looking furtive on our lawn this morning.

I've just started volunteering on a community allotment which hasn't been looked after for many months, it's pretty big and gone wild - full of weeds and long grass. It's gonna take me a good month or so to get it nice again but it has lots of potential. I don't know a great deal about gardening, learning as I go and doing an evening course. Would be grateful for any suggestions as to what I could plant come mid-late June.

Stawberries... sounds yummy. Sorry to hear about your blueberry plant Bedrock Barney.

Bubbazooka welcome and you definately didn't kill the thread. Wish I could be better help as I am just a newbie when it comes to gardening.

I did take some silly pics with my camera phone. Silly but fun.






Tonight I planted the seeds in the veggie/herb garden. I can't wait for what comes up.

they look like they're trying to speak to you, especially the first one, you know, perhaps they would do great with some pepper company to talk to

Well we share a house Daisy, so yes, we share a garden. The top picture is strawberry, blueberry and cranberry then going down there is pumpkins, tomatoes, chilli and then herb planter with coriander, chives, thyme, oregano, rosemary, parsley and the little planter next to it has basil in.

Idiot.

Looks like some sort of jade plant. But I'm not sure I knew they could have flowers.

In one of my rain barrels a couple of volunteer tomato plants showed up. I'm guessing they sprouted from tomatoes from last year's plant (a Sweet 1000). I dug them out of the barrel, which already had a tomato plant planted in it, and planted them in the ground in my patch. So, I think my final summer garden roster is:

8 tomato plants (3 of them being pretty big tomatoes and the rest are cheeries, grape, and Juliette's)
1 sprawling zucchini plant
1 trellis of green beans
2 basils
1 cilantro which is already bolting and soon won't be worth eating

Nah. I've seen it for sale at some of the big box stores.

I'm fairly certain they sell it at Lowes and Kmart around here.

I just got back from planting my second garden out at my father-in-law's farm. They saved a plot for me. A little late this year due to renos and relatives etc. But with the garden at home at the one at the farm I'm going to have a shitload of veggies. Awesome.

At home I decided this year I'm going totally organic. Not even city chlorinated water for my garden, rain and rain-barrel water only. No chemical fertilizers, only organic stuff which technically means foul thick brown fishgut sludge. It said on the label that it had been deodorized.... I poured some on this weekend and my cat came sprinting over from out of nowhere, vibrating while sniffing frantically trying to find some prey. He spent the rest of the day rolling in this dirt patch. Cats and flies.

I emailed the company about mercury levels so we'll see what they have to say.
After reading on this here internet for awhile, it seems there are standards for things like mercury levels if the product is to be certified "organic" which mine is.
Still haven't used it on the veg yet as they're way too small but I have on the fleurs.
