Sil_Sim

Did you try the instructions on HOW TO ?

I am not sure if they are any different for flicker accounts. I know I had a problem at first because I did not see the instructions to copy and paste the url after I browsed to find the photo.

I hope this helps.

I did enjoy looking at your photos on flicker. Thanks for sharing.

I know that is imposible to follow a traditional course, because I am in an other part of the world, but maybe is an other way. Is just an idee (what else to do in a rainy-boring afternoon). :drunken: sawing logs

On the home page of the Square Foot Garden site you can click on courses or try this.

There is a Home Study course that a person can take and details are given here. I am interested in doing it as well. It just seems like a very wonderful thing to take.

It rain again. What is your advice for me? To cover the boxes during the night with a plastic sheet or to leave it like it is? The temperature during the night is positive but the real feel is negative a little bit (-1*Celsius).
BTW: my english is good enought or is great fun when you read my messages? Razz

Your English is good enough, but even if it wasn't, it's 1000% better than my Romanian which does not exist. Very Happy

Sil_simi, your English is just fine. We have no problem understanding you.

Thanks for posting your pictures. It is very exciting to watch things grow isn't it? Your strawberries are looking great!!!

Almost all of the snow is gone from my yard now, but the ground is still frozen. It will be another month before I can plant much outside. Spring is coming, very slowly

Your garlic and strawberries are doing very well.

Hope the rest of your veggies do well too!

Finaly the first sunny day! :sunny:The plan for today is: a strawberries pyramid, 2 boxes 4x4 and one 6(8)x1(2). And of course I will grill a fish (one from Black Sea) and I will fight with a couple of glasses with white wine (mediteranean flavor).

Oh my! I LOVE your patio with the paving bricks and your shady pergola. The cooking area in the left......is that gas? I want an nice outdoor cooking space too. Someday.

What are the large metal sculptured pieces on the patio that look like ships anchors? Those are very cool.

Great job on the pyramid too.

Careful with the wine breaks when working with power tools. Wink Do you make your own wine?

Thanks for posting those. Keep them coming.

Buna ziua!
Your garden looks very nice. Love the tower, I hope to build one myself this spring.
Twelve years ago we adopted our lovely daughter from Constanta, Romania. I learned enough Roman language to get around and ask my daughter (age 4 at the time) if she was hot, cold, tired or hungry. I remember a little of it.
We spent 3 days on the Black Sea before returning to Bucharest to complete the adoption then home to the USA. We loved our trip and Florica has asked to return to Romania for her graduation from high school.
Your english is good much better than my Roman. I use photobucket for my pictures so I can not help you there but when I click the link it brings me to your pictures. You have a very nice yard. Very big from what I remember of the houses we had visited.
Welcome again.

Happy anniversary for all the people with flower names. Today is the Flowers Day flower(Florii) in our ortodox church. Today we are allowed to eat fish.

Thank you so nice to find out some of the traditions to share with my daughter. We always thougt that her name had to have something to do with flowers, Florica. In fact one of our friends could not remember her name so he called he Flower all the time.
