Just remember that your growing season ends in the early summer, then restarts in late summer. I used to live in New Orleans and we always had to have our tomatoes and peppers grown by June Tongue  Mirliton squash grew well for us, also.

Thanks, I did not know that and it explains why my tomatoes did not do very well last year.

22  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Ok so I bought one of those pre-made waffle crochet type beanies. on: February 04, 2008 07:31:07 PM
Now before you all beat me with sticks. LOL Smiley

My friend wants one for her soon to be baby girl. I "normally" would make them with yarn but for some reason she does not like the ones with yarn as much.

She wants one of the waffle weave ones with the huge flower on it that is all the hit on ebay. I am more for the 100% hand crochet kind but to each their own.

So here is the problem. I have a 3" crochet headband. I have heard that beanies can be made from them. I was wondering if anyone knows if I just stitch the top up with right sides facing or weave it or what.

Thanks for any help. I have until May when baby is due but want to get this one out of the way so she can also have so oh so sweet and warm crochet hats too. LOL Smiley

Thanks for any help.

I am so very jelous of your back yard. I love it. It is also a great idea to plant radish and carrots in between the stepping stones that would look so pretty.

Thanks! I bought some snap peas and some peppers. I have banana peppers, chili peppers, and jalapeno peppers. YUMMY!

Great idea on the basil, as I love nothing more than eating tomatoes with basil. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. Smiley How did do you have to plant the basil seeds? Or do you just spread them on the soil and water?

I was able to clear out some of my fence room and I put up a lattice (I think that is how it is spelled??) So I have a row for squash that is about 6'x3' not much but I am thinking if it vines onto the lattice then maybe that will work.

I cannot wait for them to get here. I also bought some bell pepper seeds but have also heard that they are pretty hard to grow. I do have a HUGE plant pot that is outside and has nive potting soil in it that I might put them in that and see what happens.

Thanks so much!

I am looking for mostly a veggie type garden. I have always wanted one and I am sick of not having one. I literally have no space on my back yard. The place I am thinking of putting a garden is 11'X5' so really not that big at all. I would plant the rows lengh wise. I live in Tampa Fl so it stays hot most of the year.

Here are some ideas that I have so far
eggplant
tomoatoes (I love these I do have a pool area that I got a patio tomato plant for)
squash (but I think this needs space??)
peppers
parsely

I have a ton of fence and wall space so I was thinking of some vine veggies but not sure what. I have heard that scarlet runner beans are pretty and taste good so I might try those but have read that they do not fruit in temps that are over 90and in FL is gets to be that hot or hotter during the summer.

I am going to try my hand at some limas as well.

Does anyone know what sort of beans or peas would do well? Or anyother pretty veggie vine plants? Smiley

I also tend to have a black thumb. Sad My soil is crap so I am trying to add a bit of potting soil and compost to the soil that I do have in hopes that it will do well.

Any veggie growers that know what might do well in a small hot crappy soiled garden. With a lady who is nuts and really wants to eat fresh veggies but for some reason kills even weeds. Smiley

Also what are some cheaper ways to make a trellis? I was thinking of something but I have no idea what it is called but it has a open tirangle type thing in the middle and is made of thin small wood that crosses each other.

Well I think that the dress is cute and perfect for Christmas. Maybe Dh will change his mind with a red bow in her hair. Smiley
