Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Default Spring must be close.....

Must be about that time. As has been the case in years past, Gurney's has sent their 2016 catalog. Probably won't be another week or more and the rest of them (Jung, Burpee, Park, etc.) will start showing up too.

Do they still have ten cent and fifteen cent seed packets?

The cheapest I saw for any of their packets was $2.99. For seedlings, and depending on what they were, it was anywhere from $6-$60.

For three of their "exclusive to them only" tomato plants...$15-$20 depending on the type they are.

Dayum!
Things were much less than that when I decided to built my own greenhouse.
Really enjoyed propagating my own.

I've gotten stuff from Gurney's years ago, but their prices for things now are just outrageous. I can get pretty much the same stuff from Menard's for about half the price or less.

Yes. About the only thing worth buying from Gurney's is stuff you can't find locally.

We got bombed with a ton of seed catalogs last week.

I still have three pepper plants in the window from last summer. Down to the last pepper to pick.

Yes, sir. My wife likes them for some of the more unusual flowers and plants they offer. The things she can't find locally.

Got one from Burpee in the mail today. Prices for damn near everything are way cheaper then Gurney. And, I think they have a broader selection.

So happy today, the kid returned.After four days I was concerned. Broken -hearted concerned. He arrived tonite cleaner than I've seen him since Summer.

Gotta add him to the family. I've gifted space and freedom. These past few days?

He's back. He's alive. God what a scare. I'd rather die myself. Few things could make me happier.

Don't think I'll garden anymore.
Considering relocating to Hawaii, have an option for the Big Island, maybe.
