    This is what I know about gardening....not much.
    1. I think gardens are really pretty.
    2. I know they are a lot of work

    @GRACIE11...it's much easier than it sounds! I have the black thumb of death when it comes to flowers, I usually end up killing them but I'm pretty decent with veggies and herbs. Just go pick out some seeds you wanna try and get some of those little biodegradable pots. Start your seeds and when they get too big for the pot...just dig a hole and drop the whole thing in. Super easy! You can do it

    @MamaAndi......I tried being this big gardener I bought a garden pond went and got truck loads of rocks, plants etc. Stocked my pond with goldfish Tried to make a waterfall and list goes on it was an EPIC failure More weeds than anything Just got it all dug out and now trying to get the grass to grow back much easier....you just mow it. But I always admire everyone else's pretty gardens I wish I could afford to hire a gardener!

    Lets see, so far this year, my Salsa garden has cost me
    1 SawZaw Blade - a handful of splinters (removed the 'raised' part of the beds)
    6 2x10x10's a handful of those industrial strength nails -
    some Vinyl Fencing 'to hide the ugly compost pile, (humm 'nature stuff, hidden by Plastic stuff that will never compost!)
    I totally reworked the drip/spray system -
    planted something new.. Asparagus - no idea, if its dead or alive...we'll see -
    2 tomatoes are in (last year I had Tomato HEDGES !) but Blossom End Rot so no Tomatoes ! Grrr)
    3 sweet red bell peppers 2 green bell pepper 1 'mexibell' pepper (who knows.. we'll see how it is)
    60 'We can't call them Valdalia' Sweet onions
    4 Brocolli
    4 Cabbage <--- gonna yank these... Cold weather crop and its too hot this spring
    oh and Sweet Basil !
    ..
    ..
    now... what lives...what dies? what takes over... oh CRAP ! the wife begged me for Cucumbers.... last time I planed 1 plant, I ended up taking a big bag of them to work, so heavy was the bag that the 'Seat Belt Light' buzzed on me, cause it was sitting on the passenger seat ! (that's ALOT of Cukes!)
    .
    .
    now ask me about July 'Are you going to plant your garden again next year? LOL oh and its an 8x16 plot not huge at all.

    That's funny... I feel that way about snails. They're a tiny slug wearing armor is all - nothing different but I can't kill them. They're too cute.

    So I toss them into my neighbor's yard. I'm serious.

    Nope haven't planted anything yet. Too cold. I want to get raised beds this year. But hubby has been too busy to put it up.

    I can't wait to garden. My favorite past time.
    Ask the experimenters why they experiment on animals, and the answer is: "Because the animals are like us." Ask the experimenters why it is morally okay to experiment on animals, and the answer is: "Because the animals are not like us." Animal experimentation rests on a logical contradiction. ~Charles R.

    I am redoing our knot garden in the back yard. I removed the old paver border and replacing it with a taller but thinner one. This morning Lari asked me to make it bigger as well but if I do that it will be a rectangle rather than a square. It will need to be totally replanted. Hopefully it will dry off enough later for me to go try a couple of ideas. She wants one big one, I want two equal sized gardens, maybe a third smaller one too with pathways between them.
