HI Crystal, thanks for invite. I'm sitting here looking at our teaming winter rain thinking how lovely it would be to be in the summer growing season. My chickens would rather be ducks at the moment they look so bedraggled. I'm planning on planting garlic over the next week to take advantage of the solstice energy. We have just entered Matariki time here in NZ. This is the Moari New Year and is marked by the rising of the Pleiades, or Matariki, star cluster at dawn. Look forward to hearing from you.

Me again! I've just looked up the okra I grew this time. It is Okra Cee Gwa Long Ridge, otherwise called Ridge Gourd or Angled Luffa. I grew it for Chinese friends who live above their shop and have no garden. Didn't get a good result. One started up a tree and then stopped. The other was in the little hot house but planted too late. Oh, well..
We're off to England on Monday and will be away 'til 3rd September . Will try to get on computers of friends and family as we go. We only have three things to worry about - getting lost/robbed/flu! That just about covers it.

It is lettuce, but it's in our garden...not in pots. Kaden grows all of his veggies in pots and does very well...he has even grown corn in pots!

Hi Crystal
Thanks for the invitation
My garden at the moment is still in the planning stage.
My biggest pests however are my two dogs who just love playing in the compost.

Hi Crystal,

Love to join you. My garden is is cold and damp (middle of winter in Tasmania). I can only imagine how good those cantaloupe can taste and smell. My 'pests' are possums and wallabies and my mischievious ponies!

I would love to be your friend! I've been looking at your garden photos, too. The Okra must look beautiful when it is in flower. I grew some a few years ago but not sure what to do with them but the flowers were magnificent. The ones I grew this year were more like cucumber plants. I guess there's more than one type. My biggest pests are the blackbird and thrush, the next biggest diggers in the world. First prize goes to the three 'houdini' chooks!

Hi Crystal - I think gardening in Texas might be different to gardening in Wellington, New Zealand, but we gardeners have our muddy fingers and small successes to share! ( Even if we can't trade fruit over the back fence!)

Hey Crystal. Have you seen the Texas local group?

Hi Crystal, thanks for the friend request :) Squirrels are indeed cheeky little things, my Mum has a family of them that visit her at her cottage in Cornwall. They started to "visit" to steal the nuts she had hung out for the birds. Now if the nut feeder runs out they sit at her French doors tapping on the glass until she refils it. Cracked me up when I saw them. Here in Au we have possums instead, could never keep passion fruit long enough to eat, would just find the empty shells so gave up in the end.

Hey Crystal! Thanks for the friend request, accepted - of course :D

I'd love to have squirrels here - though not stealing my home growns!
