Let's talk Spring and gardening.
I was out at a store this weekend and the sun was shining and the weather relatively warm and my thoughts turned to spring (although I know we're still a full two months away - global warming notwithstanding). I picked up a couple packages of sunflower seeds.
I got home and talked some with my daughter about what she'd like to plant and she knew right away what she wanted: Cantalopes. We've not had the best of luck with our melons and gourds, but I'm game for trying again.
Does anyone have suggestions on successful gourding/meloning?
One thought I had is that we have a walk-out deck on our upper floor and I was pondering putting some large pots out there and seeing how melons might do there. There's probably more sunlight there than down in the yard. Thoughts?
How about you, you gardeners? Are you already leafing through seedbooks, thinking about this year's gardening/farming? You wanna share your plans?
