Growing Oriental Poppies from Bare Root Starts. 4.21.18
Chris, I think I'd prefer cats in my garden rather than bears. : )
Do you have 2 black cats? I think I only remember seeing one in your pictures.
I just ordered a rhubarb root, 25 asparagus roots, an alpine strawberry plant, 2 kinds of raspberries, and a blackberry.
I like that bear very much, even upside down. Nothing bigger in my garden than the cats - they're excited to chew chives and to lie in the sun, five minutes at a time because they're black and get overheated easily.
My garden is a riot of seedlings because I upturned the soil - I can hardly find the things I sowed.
Spud, it seems you are way ahead of me! Great job! I look forward to your reports!
Thanks for reminding me to plant rhubarb in this garden. I just read that it's a laxative, which may help with my constipation.
Don, I made a rhubarb pie just the other day! Stevia substitute for sugar just doesn't cut it, however. I grin and "bear" it.
Here's another angle. Beautiful morning here in northern Vermont. The sugar maples are flowering, the ferns are unfurling, and the woodland flowers--trillium and trout lily--are starting to bloom. Lettuces and radishes are up in the garden. No asparagus quite yet, but the rhubarb is looking great--in another week, pie!
Upside down or not, having a bear foraging in your yard is amazing! All I get are rabbits and moles.
Well, I did it again. I'm such a sucker. Rural King had the best looking blueberry plants, so I bought one for $10. The one I bought last year seems to be thriving. Over the years, I've tried growing about 20 plants. They always die. My gooseberry bush is doing well, but the goji berry plant is struggling. It should be a good strawberry year, however.
Why that image of the bear loaded upside-down i have no idea. Strange.
Here in Vermont, after a snowy winter, the gardening season is only just now getting underway. Friday i fertilized the asparagus bed and the raspberries. Yesterday I planted lettuces, beets, and radishes. The garlic is up three inches, the rhubarb is vigorously pushing up through the mulch, and the daffodils have begun to bloom. Sometime Saturday night a big black bear plodded through the tilled garden plot and turned over my big buckets of compost. He had paid us a visit at dusk last weekend, looking for food; comestibles are scarce this time of the year. Here he is, and here's the garden on Saturday, ready for action.
