I'm moving in a couple months and I wouldn't know how to plant anything here in SA. When I lived in WI, I would start seeds for my tomato box garden around this time and have them big enough to transplant by May.

I do have one blue bonnet that pops up and I guard that thing.

haha, he was cutting out the overhead cost for you! lol. My husband plants it every year. I am the one who maintains it throughout the season. A lot of people around here have small gardens in their backyard. We were considered "odd" at our last duty station. But we fit in well here. We even have a farm that backs up to our house. The kids love watching the harvester run when the corn is ready to be harvested. I just hate the stink bugs, that come with living near so many large farms. The put a neighborhood in the middle of farms. So we are always surrounded by stink bugs, lol!

Quoting sahmw2010: Well im behind! Lol. I just planted them today. Probably shoulda done it when i got them. Instead of giving me bouquet of flowers and chocolates, my living husband bought me planter, seeds, and soil. Said i had to grow my bouquet... Aint he sweet? Lol
Quoting UCFknight:

Yes we do, they have already sprouted, and are now in their respective dirt cups. After next week's snow storm, we are hoping to plant!

I know what you are talking about. I forgot all about those things. Lol. Looks like I know what the girls and I are doing on their day off tomorrow.

Quoting sahmw2010: Off. She got one of those veggie planter thingies... Dont remember what its called, but its not in the ground. So she was able to do it.

Quoting mnkymommy08: Yes we are at Bliss. Does she live on or off post? Idk if our landlady will even let us plant anything. Lol. I could do veggies though if she lets us.

Quoting sahmw2010: Is that bliss? My friend is there and she does veggies. Lol.

Quoting mnkymommy08: No flowers. We rent our house and our entire front yard is landscaped with mulch and rocks. The girls want to do flowers though so I think I am going to pick up some big outdoor pots and then go to the greenhouse and see what we can find. Living in El Paso I am not even sure what to get that will survive the triple digits that we get from April-September. Lol.
