2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures.

I also vote to pick the squash. I think the small, tender ones are the best. I remember having trouble with spinach and leaf lettuce "bolting" (that's what my Mom called it). I just googled "spinach bolting" and there seems to be some advice for slowing it down or preventing it on the web.

Looks good! I wish we had enough sun for a few veggies... Crying or Very sad

Lisa,
thanks for telling me what its called just looked it up, guess its done and i should go pick all the leaves i have. it also sounds like it will come back next yr as well, maybe in the fall i will get more from it? i need to figure out what veggies i need to pull out in the fall and what ones will regrow next spring. i guess i should have read up more on veggie gardens before i put it all in.

im sad i was short 3 rolls, thinking of seeing if one of the big box stores has sod over the weekend to finish it out or drive around looking for yard work being done!
now lets hope i can keep it alive till i do the sprinkler system next spring.

Meredith,
i have done EVERYTHING at the house when it comes to the landscaping. that flagstone was another steal off of craigs list. took me a weekend to do. were gonna do the same thing on the other corner garden. i started with the raised beds in the corner one summer then added the smaller ones on each side then added the flagstone and now some grass. one day it will come together. look at my FB albums as i think i have pics there on the yard or in the main off topic area here. i love doing landscaping just with we had the $ to finish it all!!

That's really impressive. There was so much I wanted to do with my house in Oklahoma but never had the time to do more than just small projects, and now that I'm renting again I really don't care. I will have to go peruse your albums now that I have some time on my hands.
