I'm still under a ton of snow, and it's only 9 degrees today, but I just signed up for our county's Master Gardening program. Now I can't wait to dig in the dirt.

I have little knowledge and hope these classes help. I love flowers and plants but do not have a clue what to do with them. I'd love to hear from others who enjoy this hobby.

My husband fertilized the raised bed garden today.

Then a beautiful rain came.

He found several items to pick but decided not to because I haven't felt well and stayed inside.

Monday will be a better day and we can harvest then.

I am so tired of treatment which ends mid August. I am sure this feeling is normal and will pass.

Mariange43 - Lavender is tricky in humid areas. I'm on the Gulf Coast and trying to grow Lavender this year also. Good drainage for the roots. Add rocks/pebbles around the plant to absorb heat, which in turn will dry out the air around the plants to lower humidity. Also some lavenders do better than others for humid areas. And oh, I agree I love lavender. My three plants were doing pretty good until we had a run of rain past few weeks. They are not looking as good now. Lavender is supposed to assist in keeping down the mosquito population in the area. I also am trying lemon grass and lemon basil. Both of those are doing great.

Mariangel, welcome to our garden! I know nothing about lavender except that it's my favorite color. I'm going to add some to a small flower bed I have planned... as soon as DH gets our new sidewalk put in.

Jazzy, I'm still praying for rain for you! 🙏 Hopefully you'll get some soon, sizzling is not good for plants!

Vicky, sending gentle healing hugs and prayers that your treatments pass quickly. We've got your back, you just need to take slow deep breaths and rest as much as you need and enjoy your garden when you can.

Gardennerd, awesome pictures! I've got 2 cameras but never figured out how to work them. My DS figured it out but he forgot to show me before he headed back to TX, oh well

Enerva, I was tempted to get an automatic sprinkler that was activated by movement. Withyou living in an apartment your lower neighbors may not like getting splattered with water. They have some that you fill with water and are solar powered which would work well for you.

It rained off and on most of the day yesterday so I just slept all day. I can't seem to figure out why I'm so tired all of a sudden? I don't like it! I'll wander out to check my garden in a bit to see if my tomato and pepper plants have grown with the rain. They still seem awfully small to me, they are growing peppers and tomatoes so I guess I shouldn't worry about plant size. The only thing I have planned for the day is to pick up the fallen branches from the storms Saturday and Sunday and mow the yard. I'm worn out from just thinking about it. 😜

Hi ladies- the news is funny here, they said we are in a cooling trend now which to them means not 100 degrees? It is upper 90s now but going to 105 by Friday. Dang!

My front yard rock garden plants have shrivled, most seem to be dying or withered out. The succulents are fine for the most part. So sad to me, and done my best to water a couple times a day and also have drip but it is just too hot for too long right now. That being said, the perrenials may get new life when the summer rains come. The monsoons should be ramping up soon.

The back yard gardens are holding their own for the most part, some shriveling but they get less sun and are doing better.

Gardennerd- great pics!

Vicky- any time sister. After all, we are a breast cancer support site, right? Gardening thread is fun to watch even if you cannot garden right now. Something to look forward to. And if I can suggest this, make a list of all the things you want to do when you are better? It helps to have thing to look forward to- trips to take, gardens to plant, people to spend time with, food you like to eat that may not taste good right now.

Gardennerd, what awesome night pictures! Who would have guessed so many visitors would show up?

Ananda, that is gorgeous and looks like you have planted my type of plants....ones that mostly take care of themselves while looking beautiful.

Jazzy, I understand the sizzling garden. That is why I am mostly planting peppers now. We had too many years of high heat and no rain and I would lose my veggie gardens after all the work I put into it. I don't plant a lot of flowers for that same reason. I do have 2 beautiful fake hanging baskets which also give me joy. Still hoping for rain your way and mine too. We got teased with a misting yesterday. It was so light that I went out and watered the veggie gardens, the flowers, and the grapes and blackberries. I figured if I did not water then they would all look awful tonight when I got home and since it takes me about an hour to hand water I was not looking forward to that. I still prefer nature's watering as the plants do seem to perk up a lot better.

Scottie, what a cute lil frog!

Welcome to the site Mariangel! Lavender is such a great plant...looks great, smells great.

Enerva, sorry to hear the squirrels are back. I didn't know bonsai bloomed. What type is yours?

Teka, That beauty bush is so pretty as is that red honeysuckle. I have some of the invasive yellow that has made its way to the front yard and wrapped around the water faucet there. I should pull it. Ugh

Vicky, it's OK and will get better. I find on my worse days thinking about the garden helped me as it always brought me joy in the previous years.

Lori. I still experience that tiredness too. I think it is the body still recovering from the assault on it and then the AI I take contributes to the feeling too.

I almost forgot...I picked my first ripe blackberry yesterday! Yeah me! LOL I may need to get some netting over the plants so the birds don't get the rest as they ripen. These are the plants I put in last year after losing all the others to the years of drought. I should cover the grapes too as they will start to ripen in the next few weeks as well.

DH built a small porch for the front of my new shed to make it easier for me to get in and out of it. He says he is putting a railing by the step "in case" I need to grab it. Since my treatments it has definitely become a little hard to go up and down stairs and even to get out of chairs. I had moderate arthritis I dealt with prior to BC but now everything seems to have intensified. Grrrrrrrrr But ...motion is lotion. :-)

Does anybody use shade cloth? We don't need it here but it seems like it might be helpful where there's more sun. Our front lawn is mostly clover. I'm fine with it since it doesn't need any care and stays green much better than the grass. People here let their grass go brown in the summer. It's green from fall to spring.

Wren, we don't normally water our lawns either. DH likes it when he doesn't have to mow as there is nothing to cut when it doesn't rain.

Jazzy, 123!!! Holy cow! We lived in Alamogordo for 4 years and it'd get so hot and crispy every summer with very little rain during growing season. Dang!

Vicky, yay for great days!

Heidi, yay for your DH building you a porch for your garden shed! I'm wondering if it's the AI that I'm taking too? I can deal with a sleepy day now and then as long as it doesn't move in and take over my body. Otherwise, it'll have to move out! If it were just that easy.

My beans are doing great and I have the cutest baby cucumbers. We got a nice down pour late last night so it saves me from watering this morning. I'm trying to send rain to everyone that needs it but it keeps getting sidetracked!
