February 2nd onion seeds planted in ice cubes trays. 10 to 14 days germination time.

February 11th a large variety of different veggies seeds planted in small cups. As each begins to grow then more of exactly the same will be planted to insure a possible excess during the summer months.

All seeds were placed on a south window inside the house.

Will keep this thread updated as things progress concerning the garden inside or out.

Is that because I have the album set for public on photobucket?

If so I need to be selected on what pictures I download. Sometimes some of the pictures are repeats or just not the best.

Some seeds take a while to germinate and the soil has to be warm.

Our beans are coming up. Seems like a long time too.

[size=16]Dad likes to plant tomatoes .  and  we used to plant green bens.   After the season ended dad would roto  till the soil and   the next A Mulch was placed on the soil the following years as well as coffee grounds ,( sometimes egg shells leaves from my cousins's tree or trees,  and the res of squash or what have you were combined with the mulch. We get volunteer tomatoes and   then some. If you find out that a green bean, black eyed pea pod is dry set it aside for the next the next suggest this? I found out through trial and error, that the pod or seed is used to the soil in your garden, and henceforth, it will grow better. Back in 1966 mom & I lived with her parents. My grandfather who was a farmer or my grandmother had c[/size] a garden. I seem to remember something about hearing something said back then in my memory bank, about saving the dried pods.

Well it took some doing but here are a few new pictures.  I had problems learning the new camera.  It took 4 pictures then told me I was out of memory.  You would think I could take more than 4.  So I get in the truck to take the camera back and was in tears.  I tear up easily these days when things do not go well for me.  They were willing to refund the money but asked me to go back to the camera dept and talk with them back there. Come to find out the person who sold me the camera did not tell me it needed a memory card.  So for another $10 I purchase a card.  Came home and took 15 pictures and will show you some.  The garden does not look all that different that other years but will post them anyway for you.
