    Hi everyone, I am new here. My husband and I live and garden on a home with about 2 1/2 acres. We have had this place since 1981 and enjoy veg. and flower gardening. We put in a greenhouse a few years ago and are still learning about working with it. Right now our gardens are under over a foot of snow so I don't have any photos to post right now. I am looking forward to hearing from others about their gardens.

    Hi there Linda and a warm welcome to our forums. We've just got rid of the snow here in this part of Scotland - hopefully we'll have no more until next winter.
    I look forward to seeing your garden once the white stuff has gone.

    Hi Linda,
    Welcome! The Stew is a fun die with a lot of gardening info.

    My garden is also deep under snow. I am awaiting the arrival of potting soil so i can start seeds. Do you start your own seeds or go with transplants?

    Hi Linda, welcome to Gardenstew from Chelmsford MA. It's time to open the seed catalogs and dream about summer flowers.

    We have started some of the seeds we want to start. beets, onions, carrots, broccoli, artichokes and spinach. Will start some others later on. We plan on getting started with our greenhouse once some of the seeds get up and going. I also want to plant quite a few flowers. Our greenhouse doesn't have any heat at this point and we have some pansies in it that I had from last fall. They have passed the winter in the greenhouse. They seem to be doing quite well at this point.

    We had a little snow this morning but it stopped earlier. We only got a few inches.

    Welcome from Kansas! At least at this time of year you truly can wait five minutes and the weather has changed. You are very lucky to have a greenhouse - I can't imagine how you keep it cool in south TX but it must be wonderful to have it!!
