Summer Seed Plantinbg Experiment: Perennial flowers. 7.14.18
Patricia, I hope you kept the lilac root. They can survive fires, droughts, neglect, and abuse such as that run-away car. As I drive south into the Palouse country, there are many abandoned homestead. Trees, lilacs, iris, and peonies often survive abandonment.
Yes, Spud, & I was so upset when a runaway car lost its parking brake, rolled down the hill into the front yard, & destroyed the lilac tree.
This group is certainly the most active group of all! Fun to read. I concur with all the responses.
Jotham, your veggie list looks familiar! And I, too, can't seem to grow parsnips. $3.00 in seeds wasted. I didn't plant carrots or radishes this year for some reason.
One of my cabbages split open, so I harvested it and fried it up with sausage for supper (with white sauce on top). Enjoying my sweet corn and tomatoes, also.
Had an odd occurrence when I discovered just one red plum on my tree. I also had only one apricot. Weird. No peaches or nectarines, and few transparent apples. Bad spring, I reckon.
Patricia, I can relate to you in your lilac fort. I used to secrete myself in the tall alfalfa that dad raised for the rabbits.
I like the gladiolas as well, especially the dark ones.
Loam Gnome, your glads are lovely; they evoke memories of my grandmother's garden. She had to dig them up each fall and replant them in the spring. Are you able to leave yours in the ground over winter?
Laura stopped by lawn watering today because I am using too much well water. I am glad I didn't plant the raised beds; they would have died from thirst by now.
I just got the Demeter, so haven't tested it yet other than sniffing it, but the Pacifica is quite strong, & very long lasting.
Patricia, thank you for the leads to these two lilac aromas that you like. I look forward to trying them.
These two are about the best I have found, Joan.
Spud, If you had asked me that question 20 years ago, I would have replied going to the places where my ancestors lived in the U.S., Europe, and Central America, as well as to Asia, Africa, and the Middle East, to interview women attempting to learn what their culture included, the roles of women in them today, and try to determine what the ancient women experienced.
Asking that question of me today, I think I would still have my nose in history, political science, sociology, genealogy, and atheist material, piecing them together into a comprehensive story. I probably would write it as fiction based on facts.
I loved your response to that question, Spud. I have a mental picture of you doing those things, feeling good about yourself and your achievements, enjoying the fruits of your labor, and munching on peas!
Our spring was so cold and wet; I didn't get into the planting until quite late. Much of what I planted rotted in the beds. Was your spring cold and wet, too?
Is it too late to build a tree house? Maybe a structure close to the ground where you can watch the bees while munching on peas.
