Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
My seedlings are coming along beautifully (knock wood) and I'm putting about 50 more to work this weekend.  The spring/summer garden is planned very ambitiously this year, with lots of containers and raised beds and trellises of various sorts.  There will be tomatoes, eggplants, green beans (and purple) cucumbers, chard, kale, lettuces, carrots, onions, potatoes, sunflowers, zucchini, lots of herbs.  The peach tree has been producing well each summer and the kumquat tree now, too.  We hope to see a few olives this year, maybe.  And I'll be starting artichoke plants and asparagus this year, too, but they don't produce right off.  Haven't had much luck with grapes in Austin.  I think I may have to use some screen cloth for protection from birds this year, too, our neighborhood has so many.

I'm so excited about it, and if at all successful, I'll post some photos.  I envy you the size and location of your gorgeous garden.
