Moving an Established Fig Tree. Delayed post from Nov 2017
I started the roof garden season by sowing a lot of vegetable under glass and plastic. In a corner I found some winter beetroots big enough for the pan. Nice!
Randy, sometimes those younger, stronger people can be handy. Especially for fixing rototillers.
I thought St. Patrick's day was the day to plant spuds and peas, but every climate is different. The first batch that I planted are growing, got through a frost with minimal damage, and look good. They might not produce, they were sprouted with very long sprouts. I planted more last week, and maybe another row this week.
I long to hear from Idaho Spud as well.
I was over-enthusiastic with some of my early planting. The radishes, turnips, kohlrabis, early greens, failed to thrive, so I intend to start them over. I'm wondering if it was slugs as much as the chill, that limited them. What really took off and looks lush and vigorous - are the fava beans. I never grew them before.
Ah the weeds, they do take over! With the rain and rain and rain, they are beautiful and green. There were some breaks from rain last week, so I hoed a few rows.
YES! With a little help from a stronger, younger person, I got my rototiller started. I mean, it's only 38 years old, so why shouldn't I expect it to be "difficult". Now it's time to dig in, so to speak.
With all the warm days we've had (6th warmest March on record thus far), my garden is green--with weeds and grasses! Dang. I might try and plant some early potatoes this weekend. Isn't St. Josephs Day (19th) the time to plant spuds? (Speaking of which, where is our man from Idaho?)
We had a little cutting garden with eight rose bushes. They did great every year until about the time they started blooming, and then the deer just trashed them. We gave up and changed over to dahlias.
Yes, trillium and hosta, daffodils and bluebells sprouting all over.
It shows that you had to push on to finish your last days in the job - that causes the depression. Take good care of yourself and enjoy what you have!
Wow, it's official! You have joined the ranks of the "unemployed", Daniel! I'm sure it was--and is--emotional. It'll take awhile to get used to the changes in your life. Now don't go and overwork in your garden and yard. Enjoy a relaxing cup of tea in your sunroom at least once a day!
