The ducks have a new yard, my future tomato and bean garden. 12.22.17
Hope your tooth is better Plinius.
It sounds like you get quite a bit out of your small garden. I don't think I've eaten a tayberry, but it sounds delicious.
Sorry I didn't answer, Spud! I've on antibiotics for a tooth problem, and the medicine made me completely brainless...
My garden looks rather good - not that I could spend a lot of time on it - but the perennial plants grow like mad. Some are thinking of invading the neighbours. I'm looking forward to the tayberry harvest, and in the meantime I sowed and planted beets, chards, lettuce, tomatoes and flowers for the salad. I already harvested rosemary and mint and I think I found some leeks. The cats harvest only grass...
Heard on NPR today that 28% of American honeybees died off this past winter. 17% or less is what's considered by scientists to be sustainable.
Thanks Plinius. It looks like I should get plenty of fruit for the size of the tree. It's still small, but loaded with fruit. Even after thinning, I should get a nice bunch of apricots.
How are you doing?
Daniel, how do you cook okra? I've only tried it once or twice, and wasn't impressed, but I just may not know how to cook it.
Thanks Daniel. I do thin my fruit trees so I get bigger and tastier fruit. However, climbing the ladder into my tall pear tree is not fun, so I just periodically shake the tree to shake loose some of the fruit. Do you think that's a bad way to thin them?
Joan, I've finally gotten outside and started pulling weeds the last 3 days. I'm late because I started doing electrical and electronic work in the house the last few months, and continued into spring.
I still go to the library to access the internet, but it's such a pain that I will probably get the courage in the next few weeks to call several Internet Service Providers and try one again.
Spud, it is so good to read your posts. I hope you are well and happy and enjoying the sunshine and garden.
It's a beauty, Spud, I hope you'll have plenty of fruit!
I was happy to see my apricot tree, that I planted last year, full of flowers a month ago, and lots of little apricots on it now:
