Springfield got all the snow. MO/AR border got really smacked. I got
nuttin' but a bit of sleet and corn snow -- all melted already. Kinda
disappointed, as I had the CC skis out and everything.
Anyhow, off to BC tomorrow (after the dentist). Gonna try the "three
sisters" this year: corn, beans, and squash all out of one hole.
Any first Sunday is a good one for music.
cheers and maybe see ya there

Just wondering what you all have on order, or plans to buy when you
the ground running after the last frost. ;)
I've got.. Oh gosh.. Alot of stuff ordered and coming in. Just got 4
grape vines and 5 blueberry bushes in today. I've got some leaf mold
piled up from the fall leaves that I'm going to mulch them with when
get them in the ground this weekend.
Bunch of other stuff coming.. Some shrubs, pile of flowers, etc..
So how about you all.. Ready for that last frost?-
I've got some seeds I have to get started. But with more snow tonight,
having hard time getting excited about spring. Feel like I'm trapped
yup there are fanfare petunias as well. we sold a lot of them at the
garden center i used to work at here in canada. they are really pretty
and do cascade beautifully :). i betcha your impatiens will do
wonderfully as well ;). cyaaaaa, sockiescat :).
I usually don't wait for the "last" frost, it jumps around so much I
guess. Sometime in Feb and sometimes in April.......
Anyway I have spinach and Walla Walla onions in since Fall They are
Peach and apricot are in bloom as all of the almond orchards
I put my tomatoes started earlier into 4 inch pots today. They usually
out anytime between Mid March and early April depending on weather.
Will plant some lettuce seeds in a week or so. Peppers and Maters go
outside during day and in at night so far.
Flowerwise, the camellias are in full gorgeous bloom. Early Daffodils
fading from the 76 degrees on Thurs. Its back to 60s today. Primroses
and Hellebores are in bloom too. Many things are showing buds now.
I planted Euryops (yellow daisy bush) a Tiarella and Hypericum
last week. Ive been cleaning up from the Big Storm and moving things
(always). Been working about 3-4 hours each day, so come on out,
Cheryl and I'll put you to work!!

Lots of daylillies and ornamental grasses for my area. I am going to
be completely xeriscaped out front. Last year I turned one clump of
bulbine into three flats of plants, now in the greenhouse, and plan on
using those along with small ornamental grasses in in several stands
for the strip between the street and lawn. I also started many Red
yucca's and will clean it all up and plant and mulch heavily after I
completely saturate the soil. I'm sick of that dumb wasteful strip
and just short of cementing it in I'll try this out first.
