Planting Annual Flowers, Brussels Sprouts, Collards, Tomatoes. 4.23.18
Good for you, Chris! It doesn't matter how big or small a garden is. It's the doing and good feeling it brings. Personally, I have a lot of work to do in my garden. Details later.
Yesterday I cleared old stuff from my roof garden, planted garlic, spread home made compost and a layer of peat. I'm very proud because it's hard to do when I walk so badly.
Worms! Worms! Wonderful Worms! They work and do all the work, all I have to do is give them enough food and water to keep them healthy, eating, pooping, and reproducing.
I ate one sweet potato last night, and it seemed just fine. I think the frozen vine thing is a myth. I should google it. After I dig them all up, I'll put the garden to rest. Brocolli and chard may survive 'til T-giving.
Glad I don't have deer trouble like you two, Joan and Daniel. Just voles, rabbits, moles, and 'coons. That's enough!
I have salad making things we harvest every day for our evening meal, and await the development of beets, tomatoes, squash, and beans. Early next spring I will start some vegetables, fruits, and long season plants to be transplanted into the raised beds in the meadow to the west of my bedroom window. Sometime between now and next spring I will have a deer fence built. Travis does all the heavy stuff I can't do.
The Western Larch just began their transformation from green to yellow. There is one I can see out my western window and a whole grove of them I see out my north window. STUNNINGLY BEAUTIFUL!
Just outside my west window grows a red fir in which I placed bird feeders and water. Watching the blue jays, woodpeckers, chickadees feed and scratch the soil under the tree offers great moments of quiet observation.
Oh, I'm so saddened. We had a very hard freeze while I was gone to California. Before I left, they said "light frost possible". I didn't have any chance to protect my sensitive garden plants. Consequently, I lost all my tomatoes and peppers. Worse yet, my sweet potato vines are black. They say it affects the actual potatoes. I've never tested that threat, but I'm about to! We just need a rain to soften the ground so I can dig them up.
Welcome Andrea. It's nice to have another gardener here.
I filed a complaint with the FCC Saturday, and expect to get results with that. If I don't, there is another Federal agency I can file with, and if that fails, will file with the BBB.
I'm glad the large watermelon was too big for the little girl that was taking it, because it was almost ripe, and tasted good. It was even heavier than I thought. It was 27 pounds.
