    Don't have a garden but built commercial greenhouses for 7 years around the whole country. You learn to hate plants doing that job lol. I did learn a awful lot about growing techniques and I'll say I do have a green thumb when I'm forced too lol

    Glad to see that you were able to post, I'll clean up the other stuff, but I think I know why you had a problem earlier... it looks like there was something wrong with your browser user session information because it shows that you created the thread but the last poster shows as "Guest" and it should show you as the last poster since you were the only poster...

    almost right....its arugula. and not sure about your weather patterns there, but it likes cool weather like lettuce so you can grow it in the spring and fall when its cooler outside. i think it will be too warm to plant it here now....have to wait til late sept.

    Ok i know it doesn't look like much now but after 5 years of this and a garden that looked like a jungle I have come up with what works for me. Sorry you don't like it gfrost. It functions and keeps my kids eating veggies into october.
    I also did lose a few when the temps dropped way down.

    I just put in a Goji berry plant I got from of all places Home Depot online. I was expecting a little sprig and I rec'd a roughly 3' high x 1.5' wide box with a beautiful specimen. It even had a couple of blooms and berries. I couldn't believe I was able to buy this nice of a plant online. I have put it in the ground and so far it seems very happy. When I figure out how, I'll try to upload some pics.
    I also planted some Turmeric rhizomes the other day. Besides their cooking and potential medicinal value, apparently they are a very pretty plant. Put them along a wood privacy fence but nothing coming up yet. It's only been about 3 days so maybe I should quit checking every couple of hours???? lol

    hi horton, nice to meet you. what a coincidence, i was just reading about the health benefits of turmeric :)

    Hello kelli, nice to meet you as well. I am really fired up about Turmeric. I can't remember where I first read about it but the anti-inflammatory properties are what caught my eye. I've been using Glucosamine HCL and MSM for my arthritic hip with so-so results, but when I started adding a chunk of Turmeric root to my daily beverage (it really a smoothie, but I like the sound of beverage better...lol) I started to notice a change within days. I no longer need to use the heating pad at night and the number of "spells" when I would have very sharp pain are greatly diminished. I honestly don't know if it's placebo effect or the Turmeric and don't care at this point. I'm feeling better and giving the Turmeric the credit!!
    Now if I can only get my little Goji berry to give me a ton of berries I'll be a happy camper.....;)

    It sure can't hurt you to try it and there are so many ways to incorporate it into your diet. As I mentioned, I grind up the rhizome right in my daily smoothie and usually the other flavors in it will mask the somewhat earthy flavor. It is a beautiful orange when you break a rhizome and you have to be very careful not to get it on your clothing or skin for that matter. Apparently it is a very good dye and use in India for that purpose as well. I found mine on Amazon.com and felt the price was reasonable and just noticed my local grocery is now carrying it in the produce section. I do prefer the "roots" though rather than how it's packaged in the store in some kind of liquid.

    Kelli can probably help with posting pics @horton but things here are pretty straight forward. You can actually drap a pic over the reply area and just drop it to embed it. It will sow up at the bottom of the page and you choose whether to insert it directly into the picture or to use a thumbnail.

    You can also click the little scenic picture looking button one the reply toolbar towards the right and either upload the file to paste in a link to an image that is online.

    So, show off those plants, I know that this thread and forum area are probably going to get pretty picture heavy.

    When it is daylight, I'll get some pics and try to post them. I'll consult with kelli for sure.
    Please be gentle with me.... I just figured out how to use the call waiting feature on my smartphone (dumb user....lol)
