    I hop on here about once a month since I returned to my place year ago – rented for 6 or more years and such a mess to return to… Love this community I have been here since early 2006 and the folk here are so helpful and collectively wise… :hug:

    :wave: Sticking my hand up for the roll call πŸ˜› . I am still popping in, just not always commenting. I had a crazy year last in 2013 with the kids schooling in DE so not as much as I’d like is happening in the gardens other than the cherry tomatoes and rhubarb taking over atm :laugh:

    :wave: Hi everyone. Thanks for popping in to say hi! mistyhollows – your avatar has reminded me of our BOB challenge. Maybe we ought to kick off another growing challenge, although it’s the wrong time of year for pumpkins. What could we grow in winter do you think?

    Also, maybe we could have another swap, like the old op shop swaps, home made swaps etc?….

    That sounds like a fantastic idea Bel. Both the growing challenge and the swap.

    As for growing in winter, I think I might be able to come close to winning “most self seeded chard growing in multiple places in the back yard” LOL

    I’m just pretending to try to keep the small bit of garden @ the new house alive, the old house will just have to do it’s best until I’m functional again. I had my rotator cuff repaired just over 2wks ago, so I really can’t do anything. The specialist has told me it will probably be around 6mths before I’m back to anywhere near “normal” (me???…normal???), so I’m having to use a lot more water than I normally would, because I can’t lug buckets around. So, I can’t dig, or cut things back, or garden as I normally would; just concentrate on not letting the soil dry out too much, & keep alive what I can.

    Hi everyone!! Good to see some new and ‘old’ faces alike πŸ™‚ It sure is hot here. I spent the day in an office at work, so I didn’t really get the full force of the heat. I’m so grateful for our shadecloth-covered chicken coop/vegie garden. Hope you’re feeling better soon fruit-loopz & jaden62.
