    I hereby instate the Extra Chill Garden Club. Yes, this is a music forum. Yes, we also like gardening.

    Today felt like the first day of Spring in Charleston. February 26th. Every year I get a little too excited around this time and plant things way too early. This year, I’m trying not to make that mistake. Although, I probably still will to some extent.

    Gardening is a lifelong hobby. Each year you have a limited amount of time to learn and experiment as much as you can before the onset of winter. Also, each year you are given a fresh start.

    This year, I tore out all four of the garden beds that I built during the pandemic. I also tore out more than half of the grass in my backyard. I’m going to build an epic flower garden back there instead.

    Pictures will be posted later. Any other gardening folks on Extra Chill?

    Yeah! I’ve got some sugar snap peas coming up right right now. I’m trying to grow a bunch of bell peppers this year, got some okra going, planning for cucumbers and some cherry tomatoes. Also have blackberries, blueberries.

    I just have found that I enjoy growing flowers a lot, and the amount of effort that goes into growing a lot of them is lower. I like to see the bees and the butterflies and the birds out there.

    The insects around here make growing vegetables a constant battle against mother nature. Flowers, too, but it’s a lot more manageable to grow at scale.

    I’ve grown cucumbers since I was a kid and they tend to do well even when I neglect them. Want to do carrots in a porch planter next month.

    Just some flower seeds coming up for now, and one solitary winter rose from last week. Most of my garden stuff will have to wait until after I get back from Texas.
