Carolyn I don't think it matters. Wink

ROFL! You know what?! I don't care! Very Happy I just wanted to get a thread hopping and everyone having FUN and MAYBE we could learn something new or more about something that we don't know much about or see a variety we never heard of and maybe spark some excitement. Whooo hooo!

Rutabaga, a cross between a turnip and a cabbage. Take about 4 weeks longer to mature than turnips.

A Word Game Anyone? - Page 2 Empty Horehound

Post  Odd Duck on 10/27/2010, 12:34 pm

Horehound - an herb used as a companion plant and often used to treat coughs (along with some other stuff). It has a rather interesting, not necessarily completely nice smell (the smell is what's supposed to deter pests).

Look here:

http://health.learninginfo.org/herbs/horehound.htm

and here:

http://www.botanical.com/botanical/mgmh/h/horwhi33.html

I really like this game/thread! I'm learning so much and the first 2 on the list are what's going into my newest bed - instant update tutorial! Thanks for starting the thread, Jennie!

Nasturtium
Lightly spicy edible garnish for salads, also used in companion planting


"Nasturtium is an excellent companion for many plants. It is a companion to radishes, cabbage family plants (cabbage, collards, cauliflower, kale, kohlrabi, broccoli and mustards), deterring aphids, squash bugs, and striped pumpkin beetles, and improving growth and flavor. Plant as a barrier around tomatoes, cabbage, cucumbers, and under fruit trees. Deters wooly aphids, whiteflies, cucumber beetles and other pests of the cucurbit family. Great trap crop for aphids (in particular the black aphids) which it does attract, especially the yellow flowering varieties. It likes poor soil with low moisture and no fertilizer. Keeping that in mind there is no reason not to set potted nasturtiums among your garden beds. It has been the practice of some fruit growers that planting nasturtiums every year in the root zone of fruit trees allow the trees to take up the pungent odor of the plants and repel bugs. Studies say it is among the best at attracting predatory insects. It has no taste effect on the fruit. A nice variety to grow is Alaska which has attractive green and white variegated leaves. The leaves, flowers and seeds of nasturtiums are all edible and wonderful in salads!"


Yeah Nasturtiums, I enjoy them as hanging plants, but maybe I should put more in my garden

Since HorehounD was somehow skipped for the last letter, I will add DILL.

Dill was the garden favorite this year and I hope to grow a little more before frost come.

Post  ander217 on 10/28/2010, 7:47 am

I think some of our postings are getting caught in some type of delay. When I posted my hill onion after amaranth, the horehound posting hadn't yet shown up on my screen. As this is the second time this has happened in the game, as Jennie or someone said I agree we should just choose whichever letter we wish and go with it. Otherwise it will get really confusing.

(It's odd that the "someone posted another reply since you wrote this one..." message did not appear, but it didn't.)

LEEK Leeks can be grown from seed for harvest the same year. They serve as an excellent substitution for onions and can be grown in protected gardens well into the fall.

Kohlrabi

The green variety is more common, but the purple variety is a little sweeter. The leaves are edible, too, as greens.

Ice plant

I've never tried it myself I must confess! It is supposed to be used as a salad or like spinach.

Howdy Folks:

Ice Plant = Turmeric - Turmeric (Curcuma longa) is a rhizomatous herbaceous perennial plant of the ginger family, Zingiberaceae. It is native to tropical South Asia.

God Bless, Ward and Mary.


BIG OOPS. Ice Plant does not equal Turmeric. I was just using the last letter in ice plant (T) to start the new word, in this case Turmeric. Ice Plant and Turmeric are two different plants alltogether and should not be used as a subsitute for each other. Again SORRY.

God Bless, Ward.
