The ducks have a new yard, my future tomato and bean garden. 12.22.17
I was doing some reading on various melons available, and container vs. in-ground growing. I found this article small area melons and I think I'm going to try one of them next year.
Lemon cucumber, a little over ripe, now 6' tall and still growing - rain all this week.
When you start in pots how long do you wait until you move to garden? Some of the seeds I bought stated they didn't like to be transplanted and I should plant directly. Do you just ignore that?
Plinius, I quite like the idea of your hidden garden and that it is a surprise to your guests. :) Not sure how I thought they multiplied, but didn't know snails laid eggs. During the period of heavy rain I had tons of them, so much so my walkway became "crunchy" each time I went out. Did you use anything to eliminate them?
My garden is quite hidden: third floor (you'd call it fourth floor) and only visible from my apartment or from the neighbours'. But the people who visit me are pleasantly surprised.
Plinius, that's nice that you are the oasis keeper of the block! Does anyone see and comment on it?
Spud, my roof garden is the oasis of the block! There is little space to make a garden here and I'm almost the only one who does. Neighbours left and right only come home to sleep but they don't really live here. One has a deceased hydrangea but that's it. So the snails and the other vermin will come here and do everything they can think of. The birds stay away though, I think because of Luna's powerful cursing. And I haven't seen Daniel's big rabbits yet.
Forever learning. I now start almost everything in pots, and get much better success.
Daniel, maybe birds is why my peas only get 10% germination. Last year, I started some in pots, and had much better success.
Plinius, sorry about your Swiss chard eaten by those greedy snails. Do you think they're laying eggs in your potting soil?
I don't have nearly as many hungry critters as most of you, but with as few strawberries as I have in my small garden, and how much I love them, it bugs me when any are eaten by squirrels, birds, or slugs. I pick the ones that are visible before they're fully ripe, in order to get some of them before the wildlife.
