lol, i need help

Post  bpbdrummer on 3/26/2010, 4:09 pm

I think i have an addiction, I go out and check my garden every day and then I look like this when i see some new sprouts. I just went out and checked on transplants since I tried to transplant a bunch of things that probably should have been direct seed. They're all looking good except for one cucumber, I'll have to replant that.

Your definitely not alone!
When I get home from work, the first thing I do when I get out of the car is head for the garden to check it out, and usually I'll find my husband there waiting for me.

NOt alone

Post  bjwinterton on 3/27/2010, 9:45 am

I've been out with a flashlight to look the garden area over. Everytime I turn around my husband is out fiddling with the boxes. Hey, this garden was MINE, but he is so into it that it has become somehting we are really sharing together. I have to go out of town for a week and although my husband will be here to water and tend the squares, I am a little anxious. I can just visualize it all in full bloom and I'm so excited!

We may need to start a chapter of SFGers Anonymous!

Hi, My name is Donna, and I'm a gardening addict. I hate to confess, but I too have used a flashlight to check the garden after work. Please help!

I'm positively manic over the fact that the nasty 33-ft. olive tree next door, which blocks out most light from the south, is being whacked on Monday. The HOA discovered that, since last spring's spraying resulted in a record crop of olives, they would go ahead and trim the trees properly this time.

Monday is a full moon, nighttime temps have settled at around 55 degrees, and rain is expected later in the week. Does my plan to begin planting summer crops that day mean that I'm beyond help?

Today, I went out and I removed almost all the junk out of the area where the SFG is going to be, it was not very fun Sad . It was something I was looking forward to for weeks... why? I had some old sneakers on that have holes underneath so my feet got wet. There is broken glass from when a local bull ran away and made his refuge for a week in the "ex-"fox barn; breaking old windows that we were saving to make a greenhouse.
I need a shoe repairman to save my sole, one of my work boots has to be glued back together. Ah, spring, such a terrible and exciting time.

Help me Obi-Wan Kenobi. SFG is pulling me into the sunny side. Smile
