Default 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 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 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! !....it's early here yet...so I'm guessing it might be a couple of weeks before everything is out.

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....

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:
