    Not Home&Gardem

    Spring is really slow in warming and I just can't wait.

    Two years ago I had a horrible experience and last year did’t bother gardening.

    I'm back.

    Just about 10 days ago I bought three tomato plants. I had to keep them inside. Finally looked good to move outside to get some sun. Left they outside overnight and I believe I killed them. They are still in pots as it I believe one many come to life.

    Yesterday I bought two more plants as things are looking better tempature wise. This morning I was out planting with what seemed good with light rain and termp of about 53f /11.7c. Low night tempaturs are expected to stay above freezing.

    There is a wind coming from the north and the board is positioned east/west.

    The plant towards the left is actually planted horozontally, considering it was way to scrany and long to go vertical. Looking towards the upper left is where I planted potoes.

    "Planted horizontally" ? Were you once a lumberjack ?

    I have planted my own seeds this year, a selection of tomatoes and some runner beans all coming along nicely on the windows cills in the house. Far too early as yet to put them outside here.......unless somebody knows better. I lost a lot of plants one year being impatient.

    Now I know why they call this Forum Garden.
    I thought I knew more than this until I opened my mouth

    Frankly I don't remeber exactly what I was looking for but came across this and other along the same lines.

    I liked this one best. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GDA4FuOosXw It happened that one plant I had was already curved and it seemed to help when I left it in the barn overnight pointing upwards.

    I knew I was pushing it as last night temp went to 31F and the scene is not a pretty one. So to spare the faint of heart I am not posting any pictures of the carnage. No reason to despair as I am confident in the not to distance future I will be posting pics my favorite produce.

    If my life depended on my gardening skills, I would likely have died from starvation related diseases in my youth.

    My tomatoes are green cherry sized things, I have spotted a couple of mini runner beans too though.
