    I enjoy watching your videos! 🙂 My mom and I started corn, canatloupe, pumpkin, watermelon, squash, green beans, peas, tomatoes, cucumbers this evening! So excited.

    @tferrem Thanks! No I haven’t grown the huckleberries before. A friend of mine did and they did great for her.

    @Michigansnowpony Glad to know it normally does well! I bought the seed locally, must have been a bad pack. 🙁
    Yes today was 15 and tomorrow 21C!!!! I was out in the garden most of the day to.

  5. I LOVE you guys! Have you ever grown garden huckleberries before? I was wondering because I started some this year. I really want to try the yellow strawberries as well. I will have to watch to see how they turn out for you. Thank you for all the information you provide.

    @HomesteadAcres — It must have been your seed Kim. Arugula comes up like dandylions usually. I thought maybe there was some secret gardening “thing” I didn’t know about! : ) It’s the 14th as I type this and I hope you got some of the nice weather we’re having. If not, it will be there soon. It was almost hot today working outside!

    You’re doing such a great job!

    This weekend I planted my beets, carrots and onion seeds.

    Maybe today my daughter and I will plant the section of our garden that we have called “The Salad Bar!”….It will consist of two kinds of lettuce, radishes, spinach, and scallion onions. My daughter says she will have a BIG salad every night!

    Can’t wait to see your garden’s progress! It will be awesome!

    @HomesteadAcres Yeah I saw the video with the loads of garlic lol And thanks I guess I’m off to prepare a spot for them!

  9. HomesteadAcres | May 28, 2010 at 5:53 am |

    @jihadacadien You can plant garlic any time, frosts wont hurt it at all. Fall or very early spring planting is great. We had so much rain last fall our bulbs were mucky so i couldn’t harvest it. We left it to over winter, then when it started to grow dug it up and divided it to replant.

    @Michigansnowpony Last year I tried sowing arugula in the garden and none came up. 🙁 So I thought I’d try it this way lol. Lettuce I normally start in the garden to, but I’m starting some inside to get a head start on harvesting. Our night temps are still just below 0C to cold to grow it outside yet.
    I sure miss that warm weather we had a while back!

  11. I always like ya’lls garden updates… been waiting since last summer for them! Thanks guys!

    I see you seedlings are coming along too! Garlic looks great! hey how long you plant them before your last frost date? (the garlic;)

  13. Michigansnowpony | May 28, 2010 at 7:49 am |

    I’m curious — why are you starting cool weather plants like the Arugula and other lettuces in the pots instead of directly planting them in the garden? Oooh gooseberries! Those, elderberries, and currants are on my list to get in this year.
    I’m rooting for your rhubarb. : ) We’re dry too this Spring. We’d had some, but could use more. You’re right about the mint — I view my chocolate mint as a weed at this point! (Can you tell I’m commenting as I’m watching? LOL)

    @HomesteadAcres Yeah here it was 21 today, yesterday was in the teens yet. Should be coming that way atleast thats how its been since I have sub to you always get our weather few days later.

  15. onetweetygirl71 | May 28, 2010 at 8:45 am |

    @HomesteadAcres Thank You. i will defently keep that in mind for our next seed planting. also do you get your seeds from catalogs? if so, which ones do you use?
    Thanks again.

  16. HomesteadAcres | May 28, 2010 at 9:35 am |

    @onetweetygirl71 Thanks! Since they are paper, you can use them like peat pots. I would probably make a few slits in the sides, I do the same for peat pots. But if the roots haven’t started to grow into the paper you could scoop the plants out as well.

  17. HomesteadAcres | May 28, 2010 at 10:21 am |

    @travisjeanelle Oh good! I hope it does warm up. Today was in the low teens C, not to bad.

  18. HomesteadAcres | May 28, 2010 at 10:42 am |

    @Lepiratepoulpe All our water comes from a well.

  19. HomesteadAcres | May 28, 2010 at 10:49 am |

    @1fanger Thanks! The tree is budding, but they haven’t opened yet. Can I do it now or wait until next spring? We have a large cherry tree here as well. The last owners planted it and didn’t prune it either. It sill has the large side branch and has caused damage to the tree. The weight on that side split the main trunk open. It’s healed some since but needs to come off. I’m going to try and take rooting cuttings off the large branch before we cut it off.

  20. Take care the dominant lower side branch on your cherry doesn`t take off. Ultimately, take it off. Do it before bud break. Cherries all have a marked tendancy to develop a dominant lower side branch. It saps nutrition from the other legitimate branches.

    I love seeing all the changes that take place when gardening. Can’t wait for the next vid! 🙂

    As always you are an inspiration. Most of our glass has now been salvaged for our own greenhouse… may even do a video of my own.
    Bright Blessings
