Hi Sheila K,
Hope your peppers do well for you.

skay, rose hips? Are you planting firebush seeds for the first time? I purchased my first firebush in the fall of last year. I think I did acquire seeds, although had trouble in getting them off their bush.

mara, what an impressive seed list you have planted! You must have so much space your way. That is great! Good luck

cicindy,, I'm new at sowing seeds as well. You have an interesting mix there. Hmmm, chestnuts! Yummy.

Hey bali,
We'll wait for ya with your outside seed planting, let us know when.

Others?
What have you planted in the way of seeds in ground at this time?

Yes it's my first time growing firebush seeds. My Mom got the firebush seeds for me, after letting the red berry dry, it was easy to clean them, she still had part of the branch with them. I let my roses grow their hips and gathered the seeds from them.

I have everything planted outside and I live in the country on a large piece of land. Believe me I have a lot more but I am too lazy to go on.

I planted in ground 19 white hyacinth bean seeds and 20 birdhouse gourd seeds yesterday. We have been having 60ish to 70ish degree weather during the day and 60s at night. We are having colder weather today. Good luck Sheila with your hot peppers and squash. I absolutely love yellow squash.

What seeds have you planted in ground at this time? Others?

Large piece of land if one is a city girl talking, but a tiny piece if you are looking at it from a farmer or rancher point of view. it is 17 acres. My gardening is all incorporated into the wild, except for a fenced in vegetable garden. A lot of the land can not be reached by hoses so germinating has to be timed with weather and rain and we are talking Texas so rain does not always come. I throw a lot of seed out there that sits in the ground for years waiting for the wet winter/spring. many just fail.

Oh, I planted some bitterweed, larkspur, showy palaxifolia, desert marigold, 2 types of flame flower, liatris mocronata, 4 wing salt bush, apache plume, rubber rabbit bush, princes plume, rough menedora, sand lilly (Metzelia decapitata), ipomopsis agregata.

They are all tiny

very nice mara.

Okay, today I planted tropical milkweed I got recently in a trade and hoping it will be purple, possibly the swamp milkweed. I also planted some cassia seeds. Trying to get my butterfly garden up and running.

Which seeds are you planting inground at this time?

Wow, you guys are on the ball! I keep trying to decide if it's too early or too late.
I have added Jacobs Ladder, Hollyhock (black, mauve, and some mixed), Hosta, Bluebird Delphinium, Lemon Balm, New England Aster, and Pink Pampas Grass to my winter sowing collection.
Inside, I too have started some Cassia and also some Cardoon.

wow cicindy, sounds like a nice assortment of seed you will be planting!

Well today was seed day for me LOL as I planted 8 varieties of Zinnia seed, two tone pink Columbine, as well as another type of Columbine, Tiger Lilies, 'coral nymph' Salvia, Baby's Breath, Lupine, two varieties of Cosmos, purple/pink/red globe Amaranth and Gaillardia 'Goblin'. Whew, sure was a lot of work, but I was just thrilled to be out there planting! Hope my work was not in vain as many of these seeds were traded with me from 2007, some in 2008, 2009. A few were from 2010 & 2011.

Cleaned all day outside and planted some hollyhock seeds along my ditch. Takes 21 days for them to germ. So feel like they'll be ok if not got more hollyhock seeds. Thinking about some poppies and a few more planting as I go and trying to keep the grass from coming back
