OT: Gardening thread
 
I've started this thread for a few years now, so I figure I'll start it again. It's time to get the earth turned over and get ready to seed and plant. Same old deal with me - pole beans, squash, radish, green leaf, cukes, onions, tomatoes. Strawberries I get plenty every year, raspberries the birds get them too fast. I'll get the grapes, apples later in the year. Wild plums I'll get plenty of them come late August.

So, what are your gardening plans?

I'm going to grow some goddamn tomatoes this year.

Im going to grow some Charger haiter fans

I had six tomato plants out last year, and a damm deer ate them up. The SOBs just don't fear anything when food is out there, do they? This year, I am gonna build a 10 foot fence around the plants, and put in a security system......

Or invite someone to sit on my patio and plink the damm things......

My garden season is coming to an end but I want to figure a way to grow in the heat of the summer. I want to try a green house with evaporative coolers and natural shade.

Normally I grow a lot of sprouts and wheat grass and make a higher % of my diet in season fruit.

Gardening thread?

A FREAKING GARDENING THREAD?

What's next -- a sewing circle thread? Are we football fans, or are we a bunch of Nancy boys?

I have to grow in the heat I do have problems setting after 103 * will this help you if not I could see evaporative coolers .... let me know I got a tomato cultvar that sets up to 103*

...and just what is wrong with that.
We have some serious gardeners on here.

...and it is still the off-season!

I have strawberries coming up all over...but still need to my garden cleaned out...will do it this weekend! It's gorgeous out today and tomorrow!

I have a really small space...but I'll throw in the usual peppers, a couple of grape/cherry tomatoes and some spices...Oh yeah...and the usual ton of daisies, lilies, hydrangeas, lavendar, etc.

I never seen a farmer called a Nancy boy but if you think growing food a bad thing you need some hunger pains lol

I know -- I'm not trying to denigrate gardeners. It's just a little.... well... effete for a football message board.

Check out the Raiders message boards -- they've got offseason topics like "OT: need advice on how to decline my cellmate's unwanted advances". Chiefs fans have threads titled "OT: what states allow first-cousin marriages?"

And then there's the Chargers message board thread: "How can we remain loyal to a team chock-full of dorkwads like Phillip Rivers and Shawne 'lights-off' Merriman"? (this one is actually on-topic)

Now THOSE are some appropriate off-season threads!

This board discusses everything in the off-season...and during the season in the off-topics/political. It's a football board...but we do talk about other things...what else is there to do when there is not much football talk.
My guess is that every sports board will have off-topics especially during the summer. Besides, most of the regulars here have been meeting for games and chatting for the last 7 years...so we do know a lot about each other.

Citi..now you have me all excited...I need to go to the nursery and see what they've got out today! LOL!....it's early here yet...so I'm guessing it might be a couple of weeks before everything is out.

Bronco Billy 04-19-2008 12:00 PM

I can see Expatfan's point about a gardening thread on a football site, but it's been on here in the past and it doesn't even come close to the worst OT threads in the off-season.

lol!

as far as the nature of nancy boys here, don't get me started.

however, i don't think gardening qualifies as effete...

and, as sassy said, it's the offseason...

at least no one's asking where to find a certain soft drink....

Los Broncos 04-19-2008 12:13 PM

Dam, wish I had a garden.

Did a lot of it when I was younger.

The main board will go back to all football once the season starts...

Sorry Sassy, I was just poking a little fun, that's all. The "OT:Gardening Thread" title just struck me as funny.

Besides, I actually DID find a gardening thread on the Raiders message boards. Here's a picture::thanku:
