Planting Annual Flowers, Brussels Sprouts, Collards, Tomatoes. 4.23.18
Last month I was doing final work of raking up some grass and put a large pile of it in the wheel barrow. I forgot about after a beer break. The wheel barrow sat outside in the rain and sun for about two weeks. When it came to getting the wheel barrow again there was awful smell and looking inside the bin the grass turned into swamp. The grass decomposed completely in the water and it was black gold. I dumped it in the flower garden and tilled it into the soil. I have not seen the results yet and have to wait until Spring.
So it seems like a good idea to do this again and wondered if anyone had similar experience with this, mixing grass with water and let it sit for a couple of weeks.
....So that last apple tree that was save did not have the rounding roots I planted survived. I guess the tree and I were lucky to have met each other. I do remember reading that it was advised not to put fertilizer around the roots so as to force the roots to grow outward in search of nutrients thus to anchor the tree solidly into the ground.
Ok so, if the trees I buy has rounding roots, then I do what WA State Horticulturist recommends.
I looked at your cool site and one picture showed the rounding roots. What are those white fuzzy spots?... are those molds or mildews?
Is it too late to transplant fruit trees from a pot to the ground? Some stores have half off on fruit trees.
Daniel, I would be interested in hearing what you learn from those books, especially "Understanding Toots" (Roots :)
Four years ago, when we had chickens they were protected from red tailed hawk by this:
I bought 3 kites at wally world and set one up on a wire above the chicken yard. It worked exceedingly well. Better when the breeze came through to make it alive. It works best when changed with two other different animal kites. Set it up in different locations around the chicken yard and only used one at a time. Often I see wild birds attacking the kite. Of course at first the chickens were wary of it but they got used to it.
I used shipping tape to attach wires that I hang from tree branches.
Other people have said they have good results hanging them on wires over their strawberries, tomatoes, and ect. Some have good results hanging them over balconies to keep poop off the balcony.
They should be hung where wind can move them, making noise, and where sunlight can flash from the diamonds.
I read some mention of them scaring away other animals, but didn't read enough to determine if that was true or not.
