Monroe - great looking rows of taters there.  I'm sure they'll be us soon with the upcoming rain and warmer weather.

Gymgirl - so sorry to hear about your back!!  Take it really slow moving around and lifting anything!!  It's a long summer and there is time.  I had a couple of herniated disks a year and a half ago and know just what you are feeling.  Take care of yourself!!  Prayers for quick healing there.

That sounds like a great addition.  Lots of folks collect things - sounds like one of yours may be greenhouses!  LOL!  Take some pics or a periodic video of the GH going up.

I can see why you all like doing the GHs.  Interesting that my wife told me about a GH close to us that doesn't appear to be used right now.  She even suggested me stopping there to inquire about it!  Looks like a small one from a box store or something similar.  I may just go by and see them.

I guess my better half has seen me trying with the mobile unit I put together and doesn't seem mind having a new addition to the garden. I guess with her suggestion - I have a free rein now to jump out there and get one.  I may have to remind her at some point in time that it was her idea!   

I'll take some pics of it an start another thread with the mobile GH.  I did see some plants coming up in it.

Sounds like you have a solid plan for raised beds this spring.  Look forward to you sharing some pictures of how they progress through harvests.  It's always good to have the pictures of where you started!!  It's good to start a slide show of all your garden pics to see how all of your hard work evolves through the year.

Everything is looking really great.  That is going to be one FINE salad tonight!! Round up a few Tiny Tims and slice one of those monster carrots to adorn the fresh greens.....hmmmm, hmmmm.

I think we all agree with Mike.  Lots of hard work you guys have put in there with some of the reward tonight!

That is quite a pepper!  How long has that one been growing?

This year is the first year I am growing tomatoes from seeds too.  I ordered mine from Seeds N Such too.  Good pricing and timely delivery.

Spent the weekend getting them started in containers.

Most of the bean seeds and fall crops I will buy at the local feed and seed store, unless it is something a little different.

Good luck.

Great looking plants!  It won't be too long before they will be in the ground.

That entire operation is amazing and extremely efficient.  It's astounding to watch those rivers of potatoes moving along the conveyors.  The sheer size and volume there is hard to image.  Looks like the fields go on for miles.

It is true that these are some of the folks that feed the world.  Thank the Good Lord for the Farmers and these fly-over states.

Thanks to all for you help!  Time to do some shopping.

Congratulations to you both!!  What a wonderful journey you both have had.  Your wedding picture put a smile on my face at the young folks standing there - and another smile at your last picture.  Still smiling and enjoying life.  You are both doing it right!

Looks really good!

Great little helper you have there!  If you need someone to help you sample the strawberries and I bet he'll jump in and help you out there.

General Discussion / Heat pad for starting seeds
« on: February 05, 2018, 10:44:33 AM »
I've been reading a good bit lately about starting seeds and plan to try it this month.  I see that most everyone is starting them on a heat pad and lights with some type of greenhouse or containers.  I have wheeled shelving ordered from Home Depot that should be here this week and am planning on building a mobile mini greenhouse cart like the one in Mr Donald's sponsored video  -

What type heat pad are you all using and where is the best place to get a couple of them? Does anyone use a heating pad that you would use for back pain? 

I think that is the last piece I need to start making some mistakes and maybe grow a little something.  Thanks for your help!

That sounds really good.  I can wait to try it.

Gymgirl - thanks for sharing that OAG video for his trellis.  I haven't seen that one.  It looks pretty neat and should certainly work.

I think I'll try that on top of my T-posts for my indeterminate tomato row.  I'm having a rough time battling the length of those guys.  I think this horizontal panel may be a good way for them to spread out without too much trouble.  I think I'll try the weave for the bottoms of the tomatoes for support instead of cages and just attach the frame to the tops of the T-posts.

It may work.  Thanks!

I was finally able to get in the garden on Saturday and planted 3 rows of onions from dixondale.  I would never been able to get those all planted without the help of the stand-n-plant seeder.  My back is still thanking folks on here that recommended it for planting.  It did take a little while to master it, but was pretty easy after that.  It's a good thing they all went in since we had a great deal of rain yesterday.  I'll be a few days before I can get back in a till a couple more rows.

Like Texan - I am getting bored and want to plant some more seeds.  I'll have to make a run to the local seed store for later in the week.

Welcome to the group GC!

Always glad to have new folks and new perspectives.  As others have noted there is a ton of experience and knowledge with this group and it freely shared in great detail.  One thing I have found really great about this forum is that there are no attitudes or egos here - they are all checked at the door.  Ask anything you want and someone will jump in and help if they have any knowledge about it.  This is without a doubt the best grouping of folks I have seen so far.

Good luck this spring and I look forward to your stories and pictures of your journey here.
