Got Burpee yesterday, and Burgess today.  Trying not to get too excited as it will be four months before we put anything into the (currently frozen, snow-covered) ground.

I have a lot this year. My  10 year old grand daughter will be helping me. I am a test gardener for NDSU and she will be picking the trials and judging them in the fall.

Go to any of their websites and ask for a catalog. They are all free. Do lots of comparing. Some specialize in certain vegies. Some in others. I order from Jungs pretty much every year. I also order quite a bit from

Pinetree out of Maine. I really don't like having to order large packets with enough seed for a couple years.Pinetree has smaller packets that cost less. So I can order fresh seed every year.

 

Usually I order 5-6 veg. from NDSU to trial and compare 2 different varieties for .50 a packet.

Hey smurf, I planted some of my super hots as early as late January and went from there with the other varieties. All my peppers (about 60) are now up and growing under lights. I'll start my tomatoes in a couple weeks or so.

I start them on my boiler in the shop, it seems to be just the right temperature. I had some jalapeños that were up in three days this year. One to two weeks seems to be the norm.

I'll probably plant peppers and tomatoes within a week.

Passing on planting onions this year.

Probably put in an eggplant.

Maybe something else will catch my eye at the nursery?

So I show the Old La.........Mrs. Duff the pic and she's like "That pic makes your garden look big.^

Then I show her your comment and the Dandelion Eliminator says "Yea.....that's the first thing I noticed."

You see......outside of Thunderdome it's the Ol......Mrs. Duff's domain.

I can only do so many stir fry's and fajita's, I'm a pepper sauce garden guy now.

 

True story......... I left the Hobbit door open on Thunderdome one night and had deer tracks in there the next day.

Duff just curious are those 2 pictures from difference years? Doesn't really matter they both look great.

Showed them to the wife and her first comment was, "why don't you build something like that for my flowers at the lake"? "It wouldn't take you that long".

 

I have deer problems there too, that's why my veggie garden is at my home residence, the soil is also better.

    • LOL.  No they don't.  There are 9 people in the stadium that care about that.   People go to eat a hotdog and watch the baseball game.
    • The problem is the Wolves have no leverage now in regards to trades. If Butler wanted out why did he wait so long, that's just going to make it even harder for him to get to the teams he wants to be traded to? He really left the Wolves in a bad predicament with the timing of all of this.   They have to keep him at this point don't they? And man Thibs is as good as gone if they don't get anything in return. This quickly went to a real promising future to disaster. And that huge deal Wiggins got looks worse and worse by the day. The wolves cant build around that deal and Wiggins either.
    • I do believe it will hurt baseball in the long run, as lots of people choose which games they go to based on who the starting pitcher is. Also, I could see it backfiring on a team by depleting their bullpen, should the starter in the next game get rocked early.
    • yes...they have been there probably for longer than that so what is 6 more months?  Not something I particularly am happy about but I am not the expert so I go off their recommendations and also it is expensive and other things were coming into play so here I hang. 
    • Butler is a locker room problem and that is evident now.  We just need to hope there is a team with assets that feel they can deal with his attitude and are willing to give us decent compensation.  Then we need our knucklehead coach/gm to think about the franchise and not himself and really get whats best for the Twolves future and not this season alone!  We have a good chip to deal.  We have 2 players that will be hungry to lead this team and show the nay sayers that they can play at a high level and win!! (hopefully)
    • This post was started in April and you still have Bats in your belfry?  😕 
    • oh and sorry about no update on this...I was told I couldn't do anything with them until Labor day as that is when the exterminator could feel good that any babies had learned to take flight.  Now I am waiting on the exterminator to come out and start remedying the issue but I am having troubles with that too!  I give this guy another week and then I am going to have to call someone else.  I don't look forward to this as it will cost most likely in the $1000 range is what I have been told.
    • Thanks for the replies!    I too have been running into the issue where shops refuse the business because it's "too old." I think the real excuse is they can't make enough money off the work. It's beyond my mechanical abilities unfortunately.    Actually, I just found a good deal on a newer and larger motor that would better suit my needs and am picking it up tomorrow. I'll be keeping the 4.5 horse so I'll follow up if I am successful with one of the suggested shops.
