    Wow, Aquababie, that sounds like it's going to be a HUGE garden and lots of work. Good luck!!!
    I'm too lazy to do so much gardening and seeds for me is just extra work. I like buying small starter plants and just putting those in the ground after the last frost and let them grow. I like growing things that I know my family will eat and that are easy to grow. I'm doing again this year: potatoes, tomatoes, pumpkins, zucchini, onions and garlic.

    Woah... you ladies are inspiring. I have several flower garden areas as well as a butterfly garden area. But no fruit or veggies. This year my goal is to start from seeds. Last year I bought a grow light for the seeds but it didn't work well. Plus it looked like I was "growing something else" in my basement :lol:
    This year I've already started buying seed packs I'm going to wait a little closer to the last frost and put them directly in the ground instead of starting inside.

    well ... yes ma'am aquababie19, I wanna see some pics ... where day at?

    I started my seeds inside in the cardboard egg crates two weekends ago: tomatoes: beefsteak, 4th of july, cherry, roma, and a few others. For the first time I started tomatillos. Artichoke (a periennial -- wish me luck), cabbage, peppers. I also started some zinnias in small pots. I plan to plant, from seed directly in the ground, green beans, beets, okra, cukes, dill, basil and I will prolly try to find some habenero and cayenne pepper plants.

    The most exciting thing I've done is I purchased a Honda cultivator ... yeah mayne!! Haven't used it yet, but will do so within the next seven days. I will try to share some before and after pics.

    Please give feedback on how the cultivator works. I live in NC and my soil is pretty much like the
    red clay soil of Georgia. When I first started gardening(years ago), I had a man come till and amend my soil
    with a tractor. Nevermind, I live in the city with a postage stamp of land! It worked though but it needs
    to be renewed (the soil) and I don't want to disturb some of my perennials.

    as to my garden...we're in a drought with limited watering, so I'll rely on my perennials and my tomatoes,
    peppers, 'cukes, and herbs go in pots only this year.

    I am going to make and attempt to do and herb container garden.

    Basil, chives, sage, thyme, rosemary. parsley, etc.

    I have the container, now I just need to get out there and get to it. It was very hot in this area the last few days now it is a little cooler. Hopefully Friday I can get started on it.

    Okay SilverQ, I used the cultivator this past weekend and it is outstanding. I come from a family of gardeners ... my aunts have the Mantis, my Dad has a Craftsman Tiller, which is big and good for breaking up hard soil and destroying growing weeds. He tilled the garden, i/e/, turned the soil over, much like what your friend with the tractor does ... but of course the tiller is on a much smaller scale. Two weekends passed and he turned it over again, I went behind him with my cultivator which ground the soil down really fine ... the soil was spongy and very soft.

    I highly recommend getting the Honda tiller ... it is costly, but if you plan to maintain a garden, it is well worth it ...
