Hi Lestie, Now I am confused. You said you opened a new thread on the microgreens topic. I don't see it in the forums so asked where it is to leave a post, as this one is for lurking comments. What's the name of the thread so I can post to it? My earlier question may not have been clear enough. No outside gardening in Kentucky, USA today. The expected high today is 14F, -10C. I hope it's brght and sunny in your windows! Zoe

Oh my Gooodness Zoe, we are in Summer here in Johannesburg, magnificent blue hot skies 28C plus with magical thunder and lightning rain storms so typical at the end of the day.

All gardens are soaking it in, ideal conditions for so much and the blossoms and butterflies and blooms and birds are all in overdrive.

I love it. And even though winter will be coming to us, well, I am a sissie when it comes to comparisons. Here our cold winters hang around 12C. Imagine that - and usually the skies are crisp and blue blue; it's enough to lift anyone's spirits.

Cheers now

Hi Lestie, I envy you your glorious summer weather. Before moving back to the southeastern USA, I lived in the Southwest, New Mexico, in the high desert. Big Blue skies there, and awe-inspiring cloud formations and sunsets. Maybe I can post a few pictures of it sometime. I lived in a fairly remote area. It was an altitude of around 1.6km and 65km from town. Very quiet and peaceful. I left thinking I needed more people contact, yet often miss the quiet and solitude. The area was intensely beautiful and soothing to the spirit. I found it difficult to leave. Sunflowers grew wild there immense fields of them like smiling crowds waving in the sunny breezes. Cheers,

Hi Zoe, you write so well my imagination is satisfied. Maybe where you are you will consider growning a sunflower in a suitable container? Could be a speciman plant and of course would need enough sun - but if you can't, then perhaps you can consider some other type of balcony or wall decor using a sunflower motif to remind you of the joy of those days and to celebrate you new choices.

Cheers then to she who does not lurk! smiling!

A sunflower would be nice. I want to do a lot of herbs though as I use them for medicine. The wheat grass article will be interesting, can't wait to read it. I made wheat grass and drank the juice way back, like 1970s. Good stuff, healthy too!

Hello Zoe,

I did not get your emails so don't understand what has happened.

Can I help you with something? Please let me know - perhaps you have a general email address I can use?

Thanks and hope you are well today,

Cheers

Hello one and all,

Seems like LURKERS UNITED is still strong and doing well in the league reading season.

Do you have any container-related questions or observations? Lessons learnt, successes or failures? Challenges? None? Okay then... what have your gardening experiences been like recently - cold winter, green spring and all.

'Come along now' as they say in classrooms all over the world, why not join in and say your say.

I look forward to hearing from you, cheers now
