daffodils cilantro kale arugula collards peas
Hello, all, I'm just curious what folks in other parts of the country (or even in my own city!) have coming up (if anything), either in the garden/field, greenhouse or on the window sill! I have collards, kale, and arugula up, as well as Cilantro planted in the fall is shooting upward. I will be planting sugar snap peas this weekend, and who knows what else, maybe some lettuce? I also have basil under the grow light in the house. I reworked the strawberry bed, and also saw buds sitting tight on the blueberries. Not to mention all the many, many other things tentatively poking through the earth! Daffodils blooming the past few days, my favorite flower! So glad to see a little warmer weather here. If you get a minute, comment and tell me what you've got planted, and where you are. Hope everyone has a great weekend! deb

Still have things blooming inside in my winter garden and Lenten Roses blooming outside in the rock garden. There are a few daffodils blooming in a pasture down the road. Mine should start this coming week. I've got hundreds of tulip bulb pocking through the ground. You know it wont be spring for 23 more days. I live in south central Kentucky.

Well,Deb,on the outside of my window sills I have 2 inches of fluffy white powder.On the inside of 4 windows I have 4 flys belly up.Inside my big plate glass window I do have a pepper plant that has produced 2 peppers,but on the outside in the window box there sits another 4 inches of white snow,covering the solar lights.Just when I was seeing the tops of the raised garden beds,I see no longer,but instead another 6 inches of white wet snow.I can see the tops of the blueberry bushes-yup, their still sleeping here in Maine.So, the only thing thats alive in my house is mainly the flys that must be on a timer,as they always go belly up eventually,but we normally dont kill them so we'll have something to talk to over the winter...lol.

It's great to see you again! My daffs are blooming! I cut three big beautiful ones yesterday and brought into the house. There are about 5 small ones that burst into bloom yesterday, too.

Hello, here in our neighborhood, trees are blossoming, daffodils and some callas. In our little garden, the scabiosas, the evergreen clematis and calendula. Our little pansies, primrose and the sweet pea (ornamental) have sprouted.
We have blue skies, but a chill in the air (for us). Our high yesterday was 57.

Even though I have a daugher who lives in Moultrie, GA, I still find it difficult to wrap my mind around the concept of planting at this time of the year. It will still be touch and go here in another couple of months.

I live in BC Canada and I have been watching the snow come down, hard and fast. Everything is still asleep out side. I do have geraniums blooming in my porch. Also some Brugmansia cuttings growing. They will not see the outside until the 24th of May if we are lucky.Our temp today is 14 F.

Hmm-lots, since I took a good look this weekend! Onions are up, broccoli is only about 8" high, but they are making heads. I'm afraid they will bolt soon. I have seedlings of tomatoes, cucumbers & peppers ready to go in the ground mid-week. They hydrangea & hibiscus are starting to leaf out. The Redbuds, ornamental magnolias & the pear trees are starting to bloom. The daffs are blooming around town, now & a lot of the trees are leafing out. New growth on the roses, ginger lillies are coming up, and so are the cannas. Spring is here!
