Today my garden started feeling like a garden!  I  planted my corn into the big bed, built a trellis for the cukes, my beets are coming up and today's work was rewarded with a butterfly playing in my spot.   Now if I can figure out a way to get rid of the darn mint that's ghosting from gardeners past, I'll be really happy.

Nice pics, CC.  My spinach and Bok Choi are bolting....

CN, I don’t have a sugar snap nor have I seen a bloom...I thought the neighborhood bunny was eating them, so hopefully as they get up the trellis, I will see some pea action!

Mine are perking up a little and I have a couple of blossoms, but now the heat is coming (97 by next Monday) so I'm not optimistic. Sad

Quite frankly, I am not optimistic either!

My peas haven't budged much at all. I actually planted more to fill in all the huge gaps about a week ago and I do see that they are up now. Guess they like this latest bout of nasty weather.

We headed back into the cold rainy dreary weather the end of last weekend. We're supposed to come out of it tomorrow after a huge rain tonight so I just went out and planted some cucumber starts and some tomato suckers that I had rooted in water. Hopefully they'll make it through the night without getting beaten too badly by the rain and cold. Tomorrow should be a bright bright bright sunshiny day!

At my favorite little computer hardware place, in Claremont, NH, I think I saw poinsettias, LOL:

Maybe someone wintered them over, RJ. Not an easy feat from what I understand.

Baby slugs ate my baby cuke starts during the night.  Sad  The winter must be long enough so that every spring I forget all about slugs.  Glad I held some starts back just in case. Just came in from Sluggo-ing the box. Guess I'll try putting some more starts in tomorrow night. Wish me luck!

Wow!  Poinsettia that is red!  Nice! 

CC, OK, so a lot of my questions were answered today when I was out there staking the maters:  Yes, a bunny was for sure eating all the pea flowers off...now that a few of the are too tall (trellis) they are finally flowering!!!! cheers 

Hopeful for sugar snaps in a week or so

Spinach=bolted again.   Rolling Eyes 

Good luck on the cukes...I do love them.

I have a theory about bolting spinach. I've noticed in my garden that spinach bolts when the daylight gets longer than a certain number of hours. I used to know that number but I don't anymore because I've given up on spinach.. Maybe it's 12? Or 10? The temperature doesn't seem to matter as much as how much daylight they are getting. At least this is true in my garden.

If growing spinach or lettuce indoors under lights during the winter months, it is necessary to have the lights on for 12 hours or less per day. Otherwise the will bold to seed from too much light.  Temperature and water are also important, but too much light will always cause them to bolt.
