    Nah. I use to save seeds. Its just too much of a pain in the arse now to grow from seed with the tight growing seasons we have here in the mid atlantic. Plus I like to support my local mom and pop garden center each spring.

    Yeah, I tried that 6 or 7 years ago and didn't like them. I'm a fresh or go home kindo guy with tomatoes. Always have been.
    I've never liked the taste or consistency of stewed "buttwad" (sorry, had a WS moment) or preserved tomatoes. Other stuff I can grind preserved. When I was a kid in the 70's, we had a 100 year old fig in the I.E. that my Mom would can every year. I can taste the cinnamon and clove now. We also had Cherries, Apples and Pears. Twas DIVINE. 35 years later, I can still smell the cherries and apple's being canned.

    My wife of 21 years can work a microwave. Whoop.

    So now that fall has set in on the east coast, I've started my annual "plant/transplant" routine. I'm adding 2 "Nellie Stevens" hollies to the front landscape between the boxwoods and the Japanese Hollies. I once had 2 Dwarf Alberta Spruce there but between the mites and the killer south facing sun, they only lasted 4 years. Next week I'll be transplanting 2 Van Houtte Spireas and splitting a boat load of Hostas, both "Sum and Substance" and "Velvet Blue". I'll probably add a Crepe Myrtle "Dominatrix" hybrid also. It's a sickass black and blue flowering Myrtle.

    I'll probably hard plant my lime "Kaffir" tree that's been in my house for 6 years now. I think it's tired of me raping the crap out of it for it's leaves for Tom Yum Gui soup. I'll put it right next to the lemongrass.

    So who's doing what this fall? Tis the season for planting! Who's moving their Yuccas, Sage, Eucalyptusesseseses?

    I'm trying to figure out what to plant right now. I'm thinking I might just run with the plants I put in last month, and let the rest go fallow.

    I gotta build a short fence tho. My temp rig ain't cutting it, and the dogs are killing me.

    I've also gotta wait a couple of weeks before I start mowing the Pickles from July :P

    at the draft party a couple of years ago, and under a considerable haze, i heard Birdman yell out the following (about 4 or 5 times, i think) - "don't marry yourselves to players!" he went on to reiterate that idea more than once on the boards, and i believe it to be absolutely sage.

    It's been so damn hot lately that I'm still pulling tomatoes, peppers, and cilantro. I even have about 6 new tomato plants I started growing from seed last month that are about 3 feet tall and starting to bud. Hopefully I can get one more crop out of them. I can't believe some of my heirlooms I planted back in spring are still producing. I also have some cucumber volunteers coming up where I pulled out the corn. Until the temps cool off I'm going to let the summer crops go. Once that's done I'll switch to lettuce, peas, bok choi, and some other cool weather crops.

    Planted broccoli and brussel sprouts last weekend, hopefully it'll be cool enough for them to make it.

    I also put in 3 gardenias, aka "my mortal enemy." I kill gardenias like nobody's business, but hopefully these will make it. I adjusted the soil and tried to make it more acidic and with better drainage. Fingers crossed.

    Just ripped everything out of my garden last week. I live in the Long Beach area. What should I start putting in for fall/winter?

    Usually fall/winter crops aren't my favorite. What does everyone here like to plant?

    straight out of the patch in my garden with a dollar coin for size comparison, and an half into dinner.
