My winter sowing sprouts are coming up!
So far the broccoli & dwarf gaillardia are up and growing! I expect much more to be up by early next week, what with the warmer days we are going to have.
WOO HOO! veggies, here I come! I can't wait for more home grown veggies and herbs.

I second your yippee! Lettuce, spinach, larkspur galore. Peas went in yesterday, AND more rain to come!

Happy spring.

WOOOOOHOOOOOO! I'm doing a tiny wiggle (not a full blown dance yet) as I've seen the first sprouts of my lettuce coming up. I LOVE THE FIRST SIGNS OF FRESH FOOD!

Rose, I'm so glad your spirea survived the drought!! Mine did just fine and is simply LOADED with gorgeous white flowers right now. It is just lovely, best it has ever been.

Some things love a good drought! The daffadils have looked nicer than I have ever seen them before!

I'm a horrible dancer but I can snap my fingers with the best of em'. My first daylily sprouts from last year's seed crop are up today (they're so cute!). Waiting 3 weeks for them to sprout was painful....waiting 3 years for them to bloom will be downright torture!

Good job everyone! Even if there's a drought it's still gonna' be a green year....I can feel it.

is it too late to plant a salad lettuce mix? I wish I was watching mine sprout but I haven't planted it yet. I just got the bed ready.

RE: I am doing the happy dance, because...

Now is a great time to start salad mix!
Today I sowed some flowers, lots of tomatoes (too many tomatoes, you traders!!), peppers. Lots of nice things. Many drought tolerant annuals.
Lovely rain today, makes ya feel the gardening spirit...

Glad to know you are dancing GGG! I'm seeing crocus, lillies and hydrangeas sprouting -- so good to have spring weather and more daylight!

You go girl! Sounds like a sexyily green garden to me.
Makes me want to jump up and slap my gramma!( figurative!!_)

I wish there were some girls my age who get so excited about growing things as I.
I got rasishes and lettuce and chamomile winter seeeds coming up like crazy too!
Much love,
Herboil

Lol, maybe they're out there Herboil. I'm 26, not too much older than you and I've been excited about growing plants ever since I was a tot and all through highschool. Not the typical mall shopping boy-crazy teenage girl but that suited me just fine. My high school boyfriend never quite understood why I enjoyed playing in the dirt so much.

Heck, now my husband still doesn't quite understand what I get out of it but at least he came with 3 acres of land and he lets me do pretty much whatever I want on it so I can overlook his flaws!

Keep lookin' and I bet you'll find one. There may be a plant-crazy gardening girl hiding inside someone you meet but you just have to coax it out. Take any potential girlfriend to Calloway on a date, maybe that will tell you something!!

I am too excited, everything is looking so good! It is so lovely to see the hydrangea buds swelling! I LOVE my tiny sedum sprouts and my five leaf akebia has a few flowers ready to pop open!

My biggest surprise this morning was that I have iris flower buds shooting up!!!! I transplanted them last year so they never bloomed and the best news is that they are PURPLE, my favorite!!!!

Herboil,
There are many young 20 somethings in East Atlanta who like to garden!!
