    Possums around here. .. Luckily there are none at my new home but sadly circumstances meant no veg grown at all this year except the kale I brought with me.

    I'm going to a rock gig at a blues pub in Milano, I've never heard this band before (it comes from the UK anyway), but the evening will be however interesting.

    They seem to come from Sweden not UK but I'm not certain. Interesting post punk music!

    Mid 70's f with very high humidity. My hands are twitching and itching to plant seeds. I must resist and wait a couple of weeks.

    Do you not have a warm part in your house, here we have hot water cylinders inside a cupboard. I start my seeds off early in there. Bring them out during the day. I get a 2 to 3 week jump on most others round here.

    What seeds are you looking to plant?

    I can't wait to get started but it will be a few months yet.

    It seems like that, at least as origins. In any case, they were a good revelation!

    I could start seeds indoors. I prefer to time my planting for mid to late March
    Our winters are usually very mild but there is always a possibility of a freak late frost.
    I have an assortment of heirloom tomato seeds, cucumbers, summer squash and cantaloupe. All grown vertically .
    Assorted peppers and eggplant .
    In late May or early June I fill in with green beans.
    I think I will plant spinach now in the space the beans will occupy later.
    I still have perennial herbs growing in pots. Rosemary, sage, thyme and scallions .
    I will start dull, basil and parsley. I also need at least one more sage.
    I practice square foot gardening. Sweet George built 4 4'x4' table height boxes with frames for vertical growing . An. amazing amount of produce can be grown in a small space
    Having fresh garden herbs and vegetables is a cook's delight .
