    currently my garden as of yesterday is being heavily watered by mother nature. this is good because I have seeds that needed that boost of water and warmth. hubby got his tiller off to the small engine guy and should get it back by this weekend in time to till the horse poo in and plant his seeds in his area the traditional native american way with the traditional seeds. plus a few other types of seeds out there :)

    Oooo baby pigs - so cute - (yes, I know they're not pets) LOL I would love to live on a farm for maybe a year to get the full experience. It seems like hard work but so fulfilling.
    I like the 3 sisters idea of planting. I tried it a couple of years ago but it didn't work for me even though each crop grew well in it's own section of the yard. Maybe I payed to much attention to the 3 sisters and watered them to death or something. I need to take another look at that simple but brilliant growing plan.

    I forgot to mention that my oak tree seeds sprouted and grew to 6-8 inches tall and my sweet potatoes that I bought at trader joe's are sprouting finally!

    i asked because I read some place that the meyer lemons where the only ones that would sprout and grow. they are a dwarf variety and do well indoors and will produce lemons in about 3 to 5 yrs. I would bet it is a meyer since it sprouted :) If you live where it gets warm in summer over 70+ degrees you can put it outside during warm periods if you live in the south where it rarely freezes for more than a night or two it can handle temps down into the 40's in winter with dips to the 30's and will do fine out side year round.
