Planting Annual Flowers, Brussels Sprouts, Collards, Tomatoes. 4.23.18
Do you get nightly visitors to your garden?
Here's a report from northern Vermont, where our spring and early summer have been inordinately wet and cool. It's looking to be a banner year for berries of all sorts, but the warm-weather-loving crops (beans, squash, tomatoes, and so on) have been laggardly. Two photos, the first of my garden yesterday, July 16, and the second from July 18, 2014. Quite a contrast!
My mother and I used to go picking raspberries south-east of Portland, Ore..... I think this was 1974. Eventually, I was politely asked not to pick anymore. I had difficulty seeing the difference between the ripe and not so ripe ones.... but I did enjoy it though.....
I've driven thru eastern Kentucky twice...once in the winter and once in the spring. I loved the forest and the mountains. It is depressing to imagine that some of these mountains become desolate flat tops.
...ahh sh#t.... that didn't work....
Grant County, Ky is where the Ark Encounter is.....
Grant County, Ky.....
Daniel, your harvest is beautiful, as always. Such healthy potatoes and greens, and onions. Isn't harvest time wonderful?!
I like your descriptions of raising your beds; it does make a big difference on the energy used by the gardener. I like the idea of concrete blocks at ground level; your wood should last a bit longer if they are not sitting on wet soil. I think 4' x 8' or longer is perfect and you will be relieved of the mowing the paths.
Bertold, thanks for special AlterNet piec, "Gardening As One Way to Fight Trump-Era Hopelessness: One family's effort to grow their way out of despair." I also like your affirmation, "Surprise of all surprises, Donald Trump is making the corn grow in Connecticut!"
Kathy, I had to laugh when you wrote about BOTOX. I was at the doctor's office last week and one of the office personnel clearly had botox lips, kind of Ethiopian Suri looking in an odd sort of way. If I were a man I surely would not want to kiss her lumpy, big lips.
What is it like to live so close to a strip mine? How is the air, water, and forest looking, or do you have forests? Any other problems they cause you? What are options for getting internet service?
Thomas Murray, you wrote, "The only possible positive outcome of strip mining is if they started in Grant County, Kentucky." Can you tell us more? Why should strip mining start in Grant Co., Kentucky?
Randy, I wish I could sit down and have a nice ear of corn, picked cooked, and eaten within minutes. We used to start the kettle boiling and then go to the garden, pick and shuck the golden treasures, and get them into the pot. I grew beautiful corn in my Spokane garden when it was all vegetables. I planted corn among the perennials when I turned the spot into a meditation garden, after the kids all fledged.
