I put my location on it as #1 to get us started. If you'll send me your city and zip, I can put you all on the map. This would be so nice so we can each see how far away we are, or how close!

And yes, I'll be down there very soon, and I'll let you know first.

And I'll bring at least one plant. I'm movin' and shakin' everything here, so there will be more than one!

Cassie, do you grow the brugs in a greenhouse? You are not very far from me! If you're ever over toward the lakeshore, let me know - we can meet for coffee.m me at all (I live in Ottawa county, Robinson Township)!

Zinnia, I just added you also.

Added you to the map. Yes, all, I guess I'm back. I have had an amazing last part of autumn and winter! Amazing! I'll talk more later.

Cookster, don't know about gagetown in the thumb but we have a hatchery just down the road from us. (Townline) and I think they ship.http://www.townlinehatchery.com/

Hey pjadams49417, I turned my sun porch in to a green house for the winter. But when spring hits they have to go out side, or Iím in brug trouble lolol. I have something like 65 or 70 and I have another 20 or so coming from eddie on ebay. I love his cuttings and plants. I also have like 3 big seed trays going with crosses. I would love to meet for coffee your not to far from me. What do you like to grow?

Cassie, that would be great. I don't drive much and get lost east of Allendale. LOL!

I grow herbs, and wildflowers, plus a bog garden and a deep shade garden(which needs work). I want vegetables but so far haven't found enough sun anywhere on our place.

I'm *almost* an Advanced Master Gardener (a few more volunteer hours and another education credit seminar next week.) Next week is the Therapeutic Gardening seminar.

Is it too late to add Kalamazoo, 49002? Actually I'm in Portage, but about 130 yards from Kalamazoo. I'm a newbie on this website, but it sure seems nice to see postings from gardeners who are close by. Where do I find the map you are creating?

Hello There
Thank you Gloria.Believe it or not, I was there once, but didn't zoom out to get the perspective. I noticed that there was a big hole around Lansing. Most of my vegetable gardening was done between Lansing and Owosso. It seems a little unusual.
Is anybody else getting an early start on their gardening this year due to the unusually warm spring we are having? I don't remember a March with only 2-3 days that didn't at least make it into the 40's. After 3 weeks of that kind of weather, I took a risk and went ahead and planted some peas. They have been coming up for a few days. I am including a picture.
Hope you all are enjoying the daffodil, violet and myrtle blosoms as much as I am. Who else but a gardener could even love the rain? Maybe a poet.

Hello There
Cold, yes; but this morning it actually snowed in parts of Kalamazoo. You could still see it on roofs at 8:20. It was 29 in Holland, I heard on the radio, at 7:30. When I got home and checked my garden at 8:45, there was actually hard ice on the garden fence. I've got saladings just poking their noses out of the ground and snap peas an inch long in the garden. Good thing they're hardy. How are the fruit trees doing closer to the lake? The crab apples in Kalamazoo just started to bloom a couple of days ago.

Hello sw5582
Welcome. I'm a newbie here too. This is my second season back into vegetale gardening. I have been growing perennials as long as I've owned a yard to plant them in. Since 1976; (please don't do the math). So I hope you are in good company here. Actually I'm suprised at the staying power of some of the vegetable varieties still available. I'm planting some of the same beans, lettuce and peas I planted 30 years ago.

Will be at the Garden Show in Grand Haven this weekend, beginner, grow flowers and veggies and lots and lots of herbs on a 60 by 120 foot lot. The prior owners were concrete happy and 3/4 of the back yard is driveway, but I pack a lot in. And you can see my garden from outer space!

Genevieve, have you looked at Home Depot's herbs lately? I know they are just the generic ones but they are less than $2.00 right now. I bought bunches of chives, parsley, lavender, thyme, dill, rosemary, and even basil and tomatoes which will be in the house for awhile. Living in the woods I struggle to keep herbs alive. Not enough sun. But on my deck it's sunny so they live in little pots.

I nearly filled the back seats of the car with plants. My hands smell sooooo good!

Thanks! My favorite place for herbs is the Muskegon Farmers Market, where most herbs sell for 75 to 85 cents. Lots of perennials go for that as well. They sell just about everything and often things you can't find in the box stores as easy. They are younger plants, but you get more in a cell and they grow so quickly, except for rosemary, but the larger the rosemary, the harder it is to keep as a houseplant anyway. It's amazing to see these bitty two inch strands of lemongrass turn into a huge three by three foot monster by the end of the summer. This winter was so mild, my rosemary I left outside survived, even the ones in small pots that should have died. This year I am trying to grow my own basils and marjoram from seed in used milk jugs, as well as a bunch of other things, but I can't remember what. Flowers tomatoes and peppers. Zinnias have sprouted, but I don't know why I didn't wait as they might be ready before it's time to put them out, but I'm kind of betting on the container protecting them from one or two frosts, and being in the city, we are a few degrees warmer, anyway. We'll see! Such an atypical spring, whether it works or not, it will be worth trying again next year.
