  • Katie Schaller Hyde Park, NY, USA...it's all over the place! Close to 90* yesterday and a frost warning for tonight! So weird! I have to keep reminding myself that it's only April. I've got peas, chard, carrots, lettuces, cilantro, and spinach planted so far. Tuesday April 17, 2012 at 12:30
  • Lieven Gekiere Last night we had only 30°F. Let's hope my veggies did survive it. Tuesday April 17, 2012 at 12:32

  • Farah Sadiq London UK. Topsy turvy it is indeed. Strong winds blue my green house off and dragged it through my decking. My tomatoes are a write off. :-( Wednesday April 18, 2012 at 13:17

  • Katie Schaller So sorry to hear of the demise of your tomatoes, Farah! Is it early enough for a fresh start? Sounds like you've been ambushed front and back this year! Wednesday April 18, 2012 at 15:09
  • Farah Sadiq LOL! It could have been worse. I just moved my sunflowers, sweet peas, rhubarb and strawberry seedlings out. I could have lost those as well. I did upload pics of my surviving tulips though. Wednesday April 18, 2012 at 15:17

  • Katie Schaller Do you get fruit from them? We have 2 female and 1 male plants that are voracious growers. The females flower, but the male never has so the flowers don't set fruit. These plants are about 20 years old (where does the time go???). Any ideas how to get the male to flower? Thursday April 19, 2012 at 00:38
  • Lieven Gekiere It's the little brother of the kiwi that I have ... it's the kiwi berry (Actinidia arguta) Thursday April 19, 2012 at 08:56
  • Linda Penney WHICH FRUIT TREE OR BUSH IS IT kATIE Thursday April 19, 2012 at 15:23
  • Katie Schaller I only know it as a hardy kiwi. The vines grow 20-40 feet per season. We always chop it back and have to pull it out of surrounding trees. Thursday April 19, 2012 at 15:58
