    Thanks, and welcome back to the hobby! I bought these:
    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0761KKJGQ/

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B016CZMOK0/

    And not necessarily this brand, but the same wattage/spectrum 100watt equiv/daylight with cheap metal bells around them. This stuff you can probably get from Home Depot pretty cheaply
    https://www.amazon.com/Sylvania-2635...502504&sr=8-13

    here's the outside stuff -
    I grabbed shots of my veggie garden how it's coming along!








    bare dirt where I should have parsley. Come on parsley, where are you??


    Corn, beans and squash... and eggplant. Of course suddenly we're supposed to have a cold wave and have 48F at night next weekend. I'm covering everything with bubblewrap and hoping for the best :O


    This is either tomatillo or ground cherry...


    ...because this is either ground cherry or tomatillo


    Ok so I thought the seeds off of really tasty strawberries I had in San Diego last year were sterile so I planted over them in my seedling trays with Dieghito Jalapenos - nope :O suddenly little leaves were sprouting up in the peppers and I thought it was the lemon balm invading at first but no, the tasty medium sized red strawberries are popped! I hope they survive my brutal ripping out from when I thought they were lemon balm


    Ok excuse the focus not being on the pitcher but I was excited to finally show off my first opened up pitcher of the year! Dark veined S.flava ornata semi-dwarf! It had a bloom but the squirrels that I assume are ripping up my sunflowers also pulled the bloom off this


    One of the sunflowers I put inside the deer fencing to keep at least 2 sunflowers unharmed from the critters. Inside started so they came up a little wobbly so I'm attempting to stake them straight while they're still supple


    I've got my potatoes set up to chit in my cellar - I was expecting them to already have little sprouts up when I got them but... fine. I can wait. I guess. The white ones are in the lead!


    Rhubarb, from seed. I'm starting more because I've decided the 3 that I already have just isn't enough...


    The ladybugs have voted my garden a great place to set up shop



    I want to show off the nice big Thistles I've got in my yard



    I hope they're protecting the sunflowers I planted from the horrible squirrels that keep digging them up and decapitating them

    A whole row of sunflowers if the dang varmints stop ripping them up




    I planted the supposedly good companion flowers in the veggie beds to try to help with the bugs situation - zinnias and marigolds and nasturtiums all over the place. Oh and calendula too


    Strawberry glamour shots




    Those alpine pineapple strawberries I started from seed


    D.multifida's been out since I kicked the Sarras, vfts and rhubarb out too. When we had that surprise frost a couple weeks ago all its leaves died back but then it resprouted again.


    S.umlautiana my second open pitcher of the year! I fed it a caterpillar already. The flava got the beetle grubs I found while I was digging out holes for the sunflowers in the sod


    Vfts mainly


    Nasturtium - I ordered a little later in the season so all I could find for a decent price was dwarf nasturtium so that's what I'll be growing!


    Hey so my S.minor antho free still hasn't popped up. Is it dead? does it usually take a while to come up in the spring? Help! Everybody else is showing signs of life already including an okee giant minor so I know it's not a minor thing.

    And some nice flowers around the yard that are popping up this year


    There was a nice yellow rose too but I wasn't quick enough to get its pic


    Ok, this was a big post!

    Nice! I have stenocereus, haageocereus, echinopsis/trichocereus/lobivia (same thing), melocactus, echinofossulocactus, and a few arrojadoa cacti seedlings. Nice nepenthes! I'm hoping to see uppers on my larger glabrata soon

    You're just not doing enough. Surely, you can rescue a couple of Home Despot Nepenthes mutts, a capensis or two, to round out that paltry collection. Looks too, like a varmint has invaded your house . . .

    Nice lookin garden!! Your strawberries look really happy! We have harvested a few but its been so cool around here that everything is slow. Heck usually my lettuce is ready to bolt by now but this year its barely big enough to harvest yet. Im looking forward to seeing your garden grow.

    I found this interesting plant growing in my rhubarb patch this morning. Seems to be some sort of scaly root vegetable - must be a rutabaga
