Cats usually don't mess with plants, do they? It's been a while since I've owned a cat but I seem to remember them destroying furniture with their claws, and sometimes not using their litter box.

Cats will eat anything green...even the plants that are dangerous to them. I knew someone, whose cat ate a peace lily. They spent $8K to save their cat. It spent a week in a special hospital in Akron.

my neighbour's cats keep munching my lemon grass

At my office, my tomato seedlings are almost 2 inches high and the cucumber seedlings are even taller =) It's nice to have something growing to watch. The birds sit on the window sill and look at my greens quite greedily but they can't get near them. Sparrows love to take dust baths in my flower pots and the blackbirds are worse than rabid moles - they plough through the ground and throw plants a yard around. Terrible pests from a gardener's pov but they sing beautifully :sweetlove:

Yup, curiosity put the cat into the ICU.

We're about ready to plant seeds in our veggie garden -- we're just not sure what stores are open that sell seeds :conf:

Home improvement store, hardware stores... even drug stores have seed.

I bought seeds in Walmart's garden section today -- green beans, lima beans, parsley, basil, peppers, and spinach.

The crocus bloomed 2 weeks ago. The daffodils and hyacinths are in bloom now. I've also notice the grass is turning from brown to green.

I've noticed that things are showing a little life here, too. Nothing on the trees yet, though.

Yeah, the trees here still have another week or two before leaves begin to appear.

many seed shops have websites where you can order whatever you like. They'll mail the seeds to you.

my tomatos need potting. Atm they are still at my office (more windowsill space) but I'll bring them home tomorrow.
I also have 2 cucumber seedlings and 2 water melons. The latter are a small species that turns yellow when ripe. Very handy - it saves knocking =)

Yes. So? Is that thought new? :conf: ;)

Strawberries are coming up, so they survived the transplant and the winter. Two onion bulbs that I left in the ground are up, so are the leeks or green onions or both that I left in the ground. I was curious if they would grow and they have, most of the ones that I left it looks like. I can't tell if the asparagus are coming up, they start out so tiny at this age.

The stick flowers (Amaryllidoideae) started coming up the first of March, with the snow! Crazy flowers. Pretty much all of the bulb flowers are up, now.

Oh, the pepper plants that I brought inside last year? The pepper that sprouted, it's still on the plant. It has s-l-o-w-l-y turned red, but it never grew to a full sized pepper. It is about the size of a small chicken egg. The plants now look like crap, but I figure they will bounce back once I set them outside. It was the lack of sunlight. Stupid awning, blocks all the light.

According to this thread, I was last here Dec. 10th. Not as bad as I thought. :lol:

Yeah, I actually just checked your time stamp in your profile last week or so. That's almost four months! You missed all the parties! :lol:
