I am on here during the day to try and avoid the important things, like work.
I find it very slow. Where are you guys? I`m bored.

Meeshee... People have to work, or sleep, depending where they are on the globe.

What do you usually do during the day? Do you work, or are you at school? What about interests that may occupy your time, if you are not at school, or work? Do you have any hobbies? Tell us a little more about yourself, because we cannot help you if we do not know from where your boredom stems.

What do you grow Gil, I'm planting carrots/green beans/corn/onions/beets/a few onions and a bit
of lettuce. But it is still a little cool here, soils not at warm as it should be, we've had a cool spring.

2 kindsa spuds, snow peas, carrots, beets, marigolds to keep the bugs away, strawberries, green beans, and onions. Gotta get my new tea roses out there, too, as well as my firebushes. Already started the tomatoes and peppers earlier. I'll stick em outside in the ground tomorrow.

When you pass York Rd. it's on the left, on the highway , at a house, but they have a sign out front,
advertising their Rhodos

Do you ever have problem with deer or other 4-legged creatures or is your garden protected?

Very interesting. Thanks for the info. I'm in Willow Point (Georgia Park). I have to stay awake on that highway more often.

Yeah, I will put in a few tomatoes too. I did potatoes last year, we only have a small yard, and they
take up too much room, but they're good for the soil.
I still have some green beans frozen from last year, they are delicious.

That would help.
We go into the "comfort zone' at willow point about once a month or so, for lunch, great food.

It's a small world talloola. Heck, we're both from New Westminster too.

Ah, you damn BC folks... I'm about four weeks away from being able to do any planting here on the prairies, the air and soil are still too cold and the risk of frost is still too high. I can't really do much until the Victoria Day weekend except minor prep work, like turning over the garden soil. Some of my hardier tulips are up, the grass is starting to turn green again, and the trees are starting to bud, but the landscape's still mostly gray and brown.

At least the snow is gone, but there's no guarantee we won't get another 20 cm dumped on us before summer arrives. It's happened before. Weather records show that there's been snow and sub-zero temperatures here in every month of the year except August, within living memory. Why do I live here? Some days, I don't really know...

Right, wonder what else we're going to find out. Where did you live in New Westminster, can't
remember if we talked about that before.
Is it OK to ask these questions on this thread, or?

Yeah, and we're even whining cause it's a 'little' cool here this spring. I have a friend in Carbon, Alta.
and they had 3 days of snow last week. It's hard to visualize that, as any snow we had is long
past. We've been mowing the lawn for about a month.
Yeah, now that you're retired, move to a warmer part of Canada, the islands perfect.
