A great group

Can't wait to start gardening outside.  But here in Northern Michigan, we still have snow on the ground.  I am excited that I just started an AeroGarden inside with herbs.  My favorite herb is basil.  I have always had trouble planting that in my garden.  Anyone else have an AeroGarden?  How do you like it?  Next year, I am thinking about starting plants early inside to put in my garden.

Scindapsus aureus (devil’s ivy, pothos)

Scindapsus aureus (devil’s ivy, pothos) is a trailing or climbing plant which will do well trained on a moss pole. Its leaves are leathery and heart shaped. The leaves very often are brightly variegated. However, the more variegated the leaves, the harder the plant is to care for.

It looks like something of a luffa gourd. Luffas look something like this before they are dried and processed to leave only the spongy interior matrix. Luffa's are a tropical gourd/squash relative that probably loved that super hot summer they had in Europe. I think they routinely get almost that big here in Dallas if they have the space. I recall seeing one planted by a telephone pole next to a street and a parking lot behind a church. It grew up the pole, and then out over the wire into the center of the street, and started forming luffas hanging down over the street. It was sort of funny seeing these big, phallic, green dongs hanging down near the church. I don't think they lasted long.

Does anyone know what a Marrow is? Looks like a super long string bean - haha

Alberto Marcantonio of Hitchin, Herts, a seasoned vegetable grower originally from southern Italy, poses with a marrow he has grown which measures 63 inches long - the same height as himself

Jean, I doubt it's permanent. The stink in skunk is something called methyl or butyl mercaptan, a volatile substance. That's why it stinks so much, but also why it will go away, eventually, on its own.

Hobbit Door

Craig Smith

At my backyard fence to the alley, I did something a bit different for the gate; A Hobbit door. The fence panels had higher and lower stringers added so the curved cut would allow the small segments of pickets to remain fastened. I spent a few days bending green treated 1X2s to create a trim around the curved opening in the fence. The gate (door) was made like a standard wooden gate, but with a 6' diameter roundness to it. The far left green door board is actually a part of the fence, as that creates a straight vertical hinge point for a pair of heavy-duty hinges. You can see the heads of the lag screws to the left of the door where the hinges fasten to the left fence post. Once or twice I opened the gate and inadvertently scared some kids who were curiously turning the door knob. At 6' tall I am hardly a wee Hobbit.
