It's spring in the northern hemisphere! The planting season is starting for many of us. What have you put in the ground? How is it going?

Fall is starting in the southern hemisphere! Do we have anyone harvesting anything?

I was inspired by you, too, and read a lot of what you recommended. I went for a walk this afternoon and found some wild rose hips by the side of the road. I took some home and planted them in a container on my balcony. I'm not sure what will happen but I'm hoping that it's safe to have them in a container as long as I live in the city (they can be very aggressive). I think I'm assuming I'll move to a house sometime in the next year or two (not sure how but I'm optimistic) before any wild roses I get and the three blackcurrant bushes I already have get too big. My balcony is big but it's not that big.

You guys (gals) have made my day. Really, I was having a really bad day--wasn't able to get outside due to some health issues, and now I am feeling really happy.

Your balcony sounds gorgeous!

I too brought seeds home from a nature walk I went on several days ago. They are mystery seeds and I have no idea what they are, something in the nightshade family I believe. Experimenting and learning is what makes it fun!
