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.

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.

    • My concern with the Statement of Facts sheet is it talked about watercrafts with titles.    I was a first time privet party boat buyer and saw a good deal. Got over eager and didn’t really know what to look for. The hull is a 97. I purchased it with only a bill of sale. When I brought the bill of sale into the DMV they said sorry can’t put this in your name or issue registration. The name on this bill of sale is not the actual owner.   Everything I’m reading about the application process requires actually knowing the owners actually name and information and requiring his signature. I have now idea who the real owner is and on top of that the seller is appearing to be mia...   Is there anything I can do or am I just SOL and learned my lesson the hard way?

    • Pretty cheap fun if you ask me....  
    • mikhas24 Welcome to the forum.  If you look up about 6 posts Pat K shared the link that should have you covered. Good Luck. 
    • Nua, just making fun of the big expensive metal can snobs!  😅 One of them got excited because I made fun of his new Play-do pellet burner! 😲
    • I’m in a similar situation right now and I am “freaking out” how did it work out for you what paper work did you file? Who did you reach out to?
    • Did someone pee in your charcoal 😁?
    • I like to see the fish that gets away verses not. A few weeks ago, I was trolling for walleyes on the SLR and while reeling one in, something grabbed a hold of it and fought hard for a while but chewed the walleye pretty bad. Trolled over the same are 20 minutes later and caught another walleye and this time it didn't let go and I saw what was eating my walleyes and it was a huge musky that got close to the boat and snapped the line and left with my crankbait and fish. So, the one I saw that "got away" was a cooler sight than the mystery fish that attacked my walleye that I never got to see earlier that day
