All the flowers, vegetable gardens and skills sharing feels like spring has sprung. My lilacs, tulips, forget-me-nots, bloom in all their glory. The roses survived the strange winter. I have lots of weeds to pull and the recent rains will help. 

Ten gallons of chicken poop should arrive tomorrow to start composting next years humus. 

It is still too cold to have breakfast outside.

I'll try them! Health? You haven't seen the traffic twelve metres lower, Daniel, but there's no escaping from that - not for me. I think my system is used to pollution - on the days I travel to a friend 30 km. from here I get seriously sunburnt.

Chris, I dont think they would be unhealthy to eat, bu t might be tough or bitter. I would taste a piece to see what it is like.

I found collard greens from roots that survived the winter - any reason why I shouldn't eat them?

BB those are beautiful!  Just amazing!

Cenek, yiour potatoes are a bit ahead of mine too.  I just hilled up the Burbank Russets, which seem to grow the fastest.  The Yukon Gold, which I planted a week earlier, are only half the size and not yet needing to be hilled up.

I havent been growing cabbages yet - with the need to protect from deer and rabbits, and in the case of cabbages from slugs and cabbage worms, I have not had the ambition yet in my climate.  I do have some collard greens that I started inside and planted the first ones outside this week.

Rhodies are out.

Gee Cenek, are you that much more ahead in growing weather than Indiana? Impressive.

Comment by Čenek Sekavec on April 26, 2016 at 12:07am

Ugh sorry that the photo doesn't show up nicely. Nearly warm enough to add straw mulch...

Randy, please update us on those grape cuttings. I have two varieties rooting as well, in potting soil. They have not convinced me they will grow yet,but not all hope is lost. Some photos around the yard. - Compact lilac "Bloomerang" - a modern Korean type lilac.

Mountain ash flower, close up.

Another historic iris variety, Iris "florentina" - this variety has been grown for 600 years and is used in orris root.


Viburnum - the type my grandparents called a snowball bush. Nice nostalgic plant, and deer don't even touch it so it grows unprotected in the yard.

Daniel, why haven't I thought of that long ago?! I "root" cuttings all the time, but never tomatoes. In fact, I have two varieties of grape cuttings sitting in water logged sand/soil mix. I'm crossing my fingers they'll take.
