  • 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 think we all know the answer to that...

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

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

                          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!

                              I had 3 strawberry plants is all...now it's going to be a pain to rake out the leaves around them...hopefully, I don't have the deer/rabbits get them.
