Spring is in full force where I'm at and everything is just starting to bloom. I have some tulips popping up but no real blooms yet. Is your garden popping yet?

My wife has a patio garden, we live in a town-house development, and I believe she has some Banana Peppers, Tomato(e)s, Green Peppers, Watermelons, and Cucumbers planted. This is our first year not being late, so we hope to have some big veggies/fruits growing soon :D

This spring in Boston has been rough... we've had a really long winter and it was snowing/freezing rain in late March. It only really warmed up last week. My poor garden has been struggling and I've been trying to help it out as much as possible. My orchids that I keep inside are loving life however.

@billymaysrip: Growing orchids is something I've wanted to try but I've heard it is very difficult to do. Mad props to you sir.

Shared. Scattered with discarded bikes and rowdy children. Some grass.

In my parents house we have limes, blackberries, tomatoes and something from the mint family. I think we may have apple guavas, but I'm not sure.

I'm in Georgia and even though it's pretty warm now, I refuse to plant anything until after Easter. Every year we have one last big freeze the week before easter and anything I planted prematurely will die.

Tomatoes- Arkansas Traveler, Juliet (cherry), Momotaro (Japanese)

Bell Peppers- Green, Yellow, Red. 2 of each.

Poblano Pepper-1 of

Marachan (Italian) pepper- 2 of

Six Chinese bed vegetables I have to truly grasp the name of, given to me by my kind neighbor. Good for stir fry, probably related to cabbage.

The garden is watered by a drip system variant I set up, and is a station on the irrigation controller for the back..

Indoor seedlings. Outside of a few peppers (Cayenne, Thai Dragon) and herbs, nothing's sprouted yet. Chicagoland weather is a bitch. It was just shy of 80 on Friday and snowed a bit this morning.

I'm really hoping I have more luck with my tomato plants this year. Last year, I had an infestation of rolly polly bugs. Each tomato was a pinata of those things...

Living in an apartment, this is about as much of a garden that I have. It also happens to be a construction site:

Shitty. We're renting and not allowed to change much. But hey, we've got some rhubarb and green grass, it's cool.

Tilled up and ready to plant. I'm more interested in the big-ass asparagus patch I planted last year.

It just hailed here yesterday. And my horses eat everything they can reach. I would have sectioned off an area away from them but then I would have to take care of it / mow it. And fuck that.

I have a tiny apartment in SF, so it's not a 'garden' but I have succulents in plants all over the place.

Walked out of my apartment a few weeks ago and noticed my neighbors have a (male) weed plant growing in their planter.

Spiritually speaking, pretty good.

But for real, I had to clear snow off my car this morning. I haven't seen a single leaf on a tree yet this year. No gardens are happening in the Midwest for a while.

Not surprisingly, I immediately thought of Pom Poko after seeing that photo.

@chemystery: My father grew up on a plantation in Sri Lanka, and wanted to be a orchid farmer as a child. He taught me all the tricks. The two orchids I have were bought from Home Depot a few years ago as anniversary presents, and I consider myself very lucky for having kept them alive for so long.

I wish I could start a garden. Before my apartment decided to do full on renovations I could put pots and garden boxes out on the patio where they'd get sun and for the past three years I've been growing herbs and flowers unhindered. Now with renovations complete they've closed off the patio area so there's no room any more so I won't be able to have a garden anymore. This, along with many other things they've done, has seriously earned my ire.

On the plus side I'll be getting a house in August which has a fairly substantial back and front yard so I'll have plenty of room to worth with by the end of August! So that means I need to find some good plants that can grow late autumn/early winter...

Looks like the last threat of frost here in midcoast Maine is on the new moon, 4/29. Some open-pollinated seeds just arrived from a homesteading couple in Minnesota, I got winter squash, pumpkin, bush bean, canning tomatoes and watermelon seeds from them. I'm growing lots of storage vegetables this year as I could have done with more this past winter. An order from Fedco should be here in a day or two with more goodies.

I may do one this year but we are still getting frost so nothing started yet. I grew some Cayenne peppers last year that i really liked, might grow some Jalapeno's this year though.

My mom, unprompted gave me a plant to keep on my deck last year at this time. I watered it for months until it died sometime in the winter. It's still there.
