Yamamoto Dendrobium nobile in Bloom. 3.20.18
Yes, Spud, my red raspberries are blooming too. Not many honeybees, but lots of bumbles.
In the past two days, I've put up (freeze) applesauce and brocolli. Green beans and corn are next. My electric fence has kept out the raccoons, thankfully.
I've been pleased to see Bumblebees in my Raspberries the last few days. I see them in the early morning, before many honeybees get here.
Daniel, I noticed you were "into seed saving". Interesting bit on your peach seeds (garden blog). I told you I had about 20 nectarine trees grow out of my saved seeds. They've been transplanted onto my kid's farm and seem to be doing quite well. They average 18" tall. Thanks for sharing your garden stories and photos.
Great, Joan, to be part of such a beautiful project!
What great things you're passing on to your family Joan.
Laura and Larry have made a commitment to grow their own food and get off the grid. It is a great privilege to be a part of this technology at this stage of my life. My grandmothers had a very different culture of gardening and I learned so many things from them. Adding modern technology, I hope to pass this knowledge to my six great-grandkids. Jacob, the 16-year-old, is by my elbow in everything I do. He learns eagerly. The others don't have the enthusiasm, yet, until they pull a radish and eat it in the garden or in their salads. I think we will have a great time together as they eat vegetables right out of the garden. Austin, the 12-year-old, likes dill pickles so he takes great interest in the pickling cucs. I have crock to make sauerkraut and pickles.
Truly beautiful Joan ... I'm feeling green.
Joan, that's an attractive greenhouse. It should be a huge gardening help.
This is the beginning of the Generation Garden where I will have the plants from my grandparents' gardens, and my garden. It is the terrace that Zac built for me. He also collected these red rocks from an outcropping near by. This rock drainage is to direct the water from the south, upward sloping ground that will be put into clover and wildflowers hoping to attract birds, bees, and butterflies.
This is the east terrace that Zac and Laura created for me and it, too, will drain the water off of the upper ground. By diverting water, we hope to prevent the washouts that have been occurring. We will put a hugelculture upslope from the terrace to catch the water flow from the south.
The final stages of construction of the geodesic dome greenhouse. We have to build the grow beds and put in a water tank on the north side that is intended to collect the winter heat from the south during winter months. The sun rises very low on the horizon, crosses just above the trees at midday and then goes behind the trees in the afternoon. The water feature will hold fish and plants that will be the water source for the growing beds.
Baigou seems proud of the harvest.
