Judy, we will miss you. Try to have some fun while you are away, and travel safely.

Here are the words for February 6th. I took out the number for artichoke, since it had the wrong one, and I didn't want to confuse anyone (it had the #4, which had already been used).

* Artichoke (Cynara cardunculus, C. scolymus)
14. Bitter melon/Bitter gourd (Momordica charantia)
54. Fat hen (Chenopodium album)
71. Kale (Brassica oleracea Acephala group)
120. Squash (Cucurbita spp.)

The only thing here that I've tried to grow is squash. Unfortunately, the bugs got to the vines. I'm lucky to get one or 2. How I wish I could have so much zuchini that I couldn't give it away. My favorite squash to cook is butternut. How about you?

2 yesterday and 2 today takes me to a total of 7. We grew yellow squash and zucchini and had so much people didn't want to see me coming with a bag! This game is getting me motivated to possibly grow some healthy veggies this summer. Although the way I cook them, they aren't very healthy by the time they get to my plate. :(

Up to 10 now. Movin' right along.

Don't have any experience with squash other than zucchini. My Mom never made any kind when I was growing up. I have no idea what to do with any of it. :D

Good luck to you and your aunt, Judy. She's lucky to have you to help her. Check in when you can.

Has anyone grown garlic? It is supposed to grow down here, but I've never had more than a 1 inch shoot come up. When do you plant and when do you harvest?


I've grown several trees from avocado pits, but that was when I was a girl and lived in Oakland. I haven't tried it since moving to warmer & drier Livermore.

I have quite a bit of garlic in my garden. I planted it around roses several years? decades? ago. It is going strong. Harvest? ha, ha. You are supposed to when the shoots turn brown and dry up.

Words for 2/8:

93. Okra (Abelmoschus esculentus)
97. Paracress (Acmella oleracea)
104. Pumpkin (Cucurbita spp.)
116. Sorrel (Rumex acetosa)
136. Watercress (Nasturtium officinale)

Okra is a popular southern vegetable. I like it cut up into soups, but that is about it. I've been told that if you grow okra, grow it away from the rest of your garden, as it is a guarantee that if you grow okra, you will have nematodes, and not the beneficial kind.

Meanwhile, most of the seeds I started last week are sprouted. Today I started some flower seeds. I really need to get out to my garden to till and fertilize, as it is almost time for the spring garden to go in. Just another week or so to go! I have onion sets ready to go, and I picked up a pack of snow peas. Oh, and carrots too. Is anyone else planning their garden?
