    DAMN ... are those scallions? :eek: My dad would go nuts for a scallion that size. One fo his favorite things in life was to grab some wild scallions as a snack while wondering through the woods :)

    I have a spot in the yard where I could put one but don't know when to plant the seeds, do they all go in at the same time, etc. I just want the basics.....carrots, onions, cucumbers, etc. I will eventually give it a go. I have to kill the damn rabbits that have taken up residence in our yard first.

    Loads and loads of info on the net, plus some of the folks here are practically Farmer's Almanacs themselves (yes, c3 is that old :p )<sorry boss, couldn't resist>

    but here is a start on google for you - http://www.bing.com/search?setmkt=en-US&q=gardening+basics as for the rabbits, that's easy .... .22 caliber to the head = rabbit stew ... goes great with taters ;)

    Thanks. I will check it out. I think I'll research through the winter and try next summer.

    You'll have great success. You can't go wrong with zucchini, carrots, radishes, lettuce and tomatoes.

    As you can see, I tore up a corner of the yard there. Actually did it 2 years ago. I attempted to put garden in there last year and the dipchit that farms the field around my house kept spraying 24D and killing it, I'd just get it up and here the d ickhead would come with the sprayer and kill it. I replanted twice and I met him at the road with my Garand the next time and told him if he even thought about spraying around my house I'd blow that freaking sprayer so full of holes it would never be used again. He left.

    I gave him notice early this spring that if anything happened to my garden that he or his insurance would pay through the nose for it. So far he has not sprayed this field.

    Yeah, that was a good one, if it wasnt for ol Ahab the Arab in the Whitehouse, we wouldnt have any thing here for garden, it sure broke me into a sweat, crackin the whip over him, keepin him working.

    I didn't even think about lettuce. Nice! My Mom and Granny always kept little gardens but it's been so long I don't remember much.
