So does anyone here do any gardening? The snow is melting here and I'm getting the itch. You see I have what I call a "hillbilly garden" every year and it's only expanding. I painted for a living for a while and 5 gallon buckets make great planters and they were free. My crop gets bigger every year. Last year I decided to make greenhouses cheap. I made them out of PVC, plastic sheeting and duct tape and learned some tricks last year. Did the greenhouses work? Let's put it this way I picked and ate a radish on January 15th. Never done that before. The sub zero weather we recently had finally killed them off but it's warming up. I hope to plant more radishes this weekend and be eating some by the end of March. They tolerate cold weather very well and the greenhouse heats up real nice with sunny weather. Also plan to start some cherry tomatoes and peppers indoors this weekend. Cherry tomatoes do VERY well in buckets as do most peppers. Going to start at least three varieties of peppers. I've grown jalapenos and serranos and I'm adding a variety called poinsetta. Hey, the looked cool on the seed packet. Later on I'll do green beans, snow peas basil, parsley and thyme. I've already got buckets of chives that we've had for 25 years. Talk about hardy. I basically ignore the chives and have given big clumps to my neighbors. They're weeds that happen to taste great. As for expansion I have started to add bigger tubs to my array and will make more greenhouses. You can get good sized storage containers at the dollar stores cheap. CLEMBO IS ALL ABOUT CHEAP Drill some holes in the bottom, a layer of rocks and some good soil and you're ready to plant. The harvest will begin fairly quickly and continue well into the fall. Nothing like fresh produce in the back yard!
