Grafting Update. 4.17.19
@Randall, I just read the news from Silverthorn Farm! Emily and Nate's sorrow clearly came through in their message. They will undoubtedly have many comments about what they "shoulda, coulda, woulda" done differently and I have nothing helpful to offer.
Organic farming offers so many benefits that the general population does not realize. I watch the videos on CSA and organic growing a big part of each day. There is one fellow that seems to be making it in this difficult market. He farms in Canada and I like him because he deals with cold, windy weather, as do I, and he uses seeds that do well in that latitude.
How are you doing with this situation?
Interesting about the garlic. Mine comes up as volunteers--what I miss in harvesting each year. They're small, so I'm considering starting new with sizable bulbs. Your information is helpful.
I was a science teacher for many years, so you know I'm a big fan, especially "earth sciences".
Good news, Joan. Enjoy your day together.
Science has kept many of us here, Loam. Its marvelous!
Does Ning garden too?
Daniel, hope you got some good information regarding your cancer treatment. Coincidentally, my dentist took his wife to the same Center sometime this weekend. Never heard of the place until you and my hygienist daughter mentioned it.
Joan, congrats on your house being sold. Bitter sweet feeling, I'm guessing.
Loam, a very nice idea for a prairie garden. I can imagine that it is a nice meditative garden.
My home sold! We will have our last family gathering there today, Sunday, to mark the end of the old and the beginning of the new.
What a nice view to have for your time there.
Daniel, your squash photo could have come from me. For some reason, I didn't plant my favorite acorn squash this year. However, my SIL has plenty. I did get some Delicata--another fave.
Loam, I like your information of what deer eat and don't eat in your recent planting helps me know what to add to my seed and bulb order for next spring.
Deer eat the Spanish bluebells, four o'clock, and muscari;
not daffodils, peonies, or echinacea.
Two deer came to eat on the terraces this afternoon; we watched quietly until they finished. They didn't touch the peony leaves, the gaillardia, echinacea, salvia; they ate strawberry leaves (there are no strawberries). We will have to protect the strawberries next spring.
I love a good pumpkin pie!
They look great!
Never heard of pink squash before. Is the flavour different?
