Spring!!!!!!!!!!!!

I think the winter has finally let up :D Time to start werkin the soil and gettin it ready for a new crop of


Im startin a different kind of chilis' this year. Ghost chilis' take way too long to mature. I'm starting a similar strain called "devils' tounge"


It matures at late season instead of very late season. It has the same scolville units as GP but a different flavor and faster maturity. Im gettin all my stuff from here at chili plants.com

Spring you say .... Hmmm . It was only 2 C today . But the sun was nice and warm and I racked the leaves in hopes that my little plants peep through . I do have some tulips and daffodils and hyacinths coming up .

Yay Spring .... oh and I saw a robin today . So that's a good sign .

But chillis ... hmmm don't think that's for me .

I live in an apartment in the city, but I do love flowers just the same.
We have flower shops downtown Atlanta so I get mine there.

Well, first , you got the basics right.
We can disk, plow, plant, water, and watch till the cows come home, but the Lord makes it grow!

Amen to that.


But in addition, I have found a little time saver, that works pretty well too.

Lay a tire on the ground. Pland your taters in there, fill it with rich soil, water, etc.

Stack another tire on top. Do the same thing.
Then a third, then a fourth, then a fifth.

Keep it moist.

Come harvest time, push the tires over and pick up your taters!!
No digging, no gouging up the potatos with the spade, they just lift right out! :cool:

(That's an old Kansan trick!) :D
I think it'll work in Kentucky too!

Spring is well under way here with temps in the low to mid 70's every day. The birds are singing, the sun is shining and the flowers blooming.:D
