With the maples breaking Dormancy, I'm pretty sure no more Freezes here in "The Dangly Bits". So I was out "farting" around the garden planting seeds of stuff that grow better in cool weather but can't handle Frost. The Daffodils are just breaking surface except for a Dbl cultivar that is found in old homesteads and graveyards around the Deep South which should be Blooming fairly soon;>.
No buds yet but the 'Ugli' Mandarin tree is sprouting leaves. Hopefully later.
The Phais(Nun's Orchid) and Cymbidiums are covered in buds; a Mini Yellow has been in bloom now for almost a month.
Our Freezes weren't too deep this yr and so I have the backup AND the big Chaya(Mayan Spinach, Super food plant). I'll donate the rooted cutting to the local healthfood store. I'm sure someone'll take it;>. If I was smart I'd do the same with the Tea Tree(same species you get Tea Tree oil from)'cause it's really getting to big for my yard. I think I've got maybe another yr until it's too big to drag into the shed during Freezes.
WAAAAAY too early to assess Galangal, Turmeric and Japanese Ginger. All I can is that they aren't "squishy";>.....
Cheers,
Pat
