Growing Oriental Poppies from Bare Root Starts. 4.21.18
Chris, your Tayberry sounds interesting and a fun thing to add to your roofttop garden! Once it begins to grow I would really like to see pictures of the fruit.
Patricia, I agree with edible bargains. I simply love bargains and plants I get for free - so enjoyable when they grow. It's better than found money.
Randall, :( sorry about your blackberry canes. This is my first time planting blackberries - will yours grow back enough to have fruit this summer? I planted thornless canes hoping to avoid the pain you had to endure.
Funny how I actually bought, and keep spending money on housing for, two adorable little rabbits and you are fighting their relatives along with moles. I have voles in my yard - mysterious creatures - I never see them, just the little holes they make. Do I dare ask what you are doing with the moles you catch in your traps?
We have rain again today! It's been so long since we have actually had Spring rains that it almost seems unusual. Everything is absolutely green. Definitely won't exceed WA, but its lovely, and my plants are enjoying the heck out of it.
Barbara, Daniel beat me to it, but I'll repeat. Your yard is beautiful. Sounds like a healthy tree.
Joan, it sounds like a wonderful time with your family.
Randy, I hope the trap is effective at getting rid of those underground critters.
Chris, those bargains sound like a good addition to your garden.
Enjoyable reading all your reports. Rabbits chewed down all my blackberry canes over the winter.
I rolled my yard this past week, mostly to mash down all the mole runs and hills. Of course, they reactivated them right away. I finally bought and am using a trap. Moles are now in my garden, and that ain't good.
How good to read all your plans and projects! Yesterday I salvaged three plants from an outlet that was about to close, and they looked quite good when I unpacked them. Two blackcurrants and a tayberry - a hybrid between raspberry and bramble. Very small but they cost almost nothing, and it's exciting to see what such a find can do!
Joan, the treasure hunt in the forest sounds like fun. Such a fun family get together.
Put a coolarama shade around my bunnies today. I'm hoping the heat/uv reducing cover along with bottles of frozen water will help them stay cool when higher temps arrive. Gdaughter of my neighbor is going to take my old hutch and use for chickens! Recycling at its best.
Daniel, I read your post quickly and went "oohhhh no!' Then re-read and realized I'm not expert so I can let those little babies grow. :)
The tree is right at 4', having grown a foot since January.
Daniel, it looks like your "a" returned to function unless you used a different computer today. I kind of enjoyed deciphering your messages!
Barbara, I join in a celebration of your nectarines! Very nice rewards for giving tender loving care to your patch of Earth. May the first taste begin years of pleasure.
Patricia, those last bits of freeze and thaw taking place now offer a peek into the coming year. Hopefully, there will be no surprises with weather patterns.
I'm at Laura's place, sun shines brightly, after a night of frost. The moon was beautifully round as we drove here yesterday. She lives 50.1 miles north of my home in Spokane at a higher elevation.
The kids spend Saturday doing chores, working on projects and taking part in sports activities. It is like a beehive with bees coming and going constantly. Tomorrow, we will have a big treasure hunt in the forest. She arranges it so the little ones have a hunting zone near the house while the older ones hunt throughout the 17 acres.
I'm sorry if I am repeating myself. I forgot to whom I described our plans.
I would be doing the happy dance also.
Omy Gosh! Yes!, yes, yes, .... I have little bitty nectarines growing on my tree! My very first fruit tree blossomed and I actually have little fruit. Such a wonderful first! If same happens with plum, figs and goji I shall be doing a huge happy dance! Gardening is addictive and wonderful! I actually ran from garden to my computer to tell y'all. LOL silly ole woman.
Daniel, I'm think I'm one of the many people who are at a loss for words about your health although I certainly agree with the comments of others. I am long on admiration for how you and Joan are handling your health issues. Since you have earned your vacation hours, along with any sick benefits, there is very little need to worry about causing a burden to anyone by taking them. If it were me, I would most likely take all my vacation and sick time and combine it with disability and just go home and enjoy my garden. You obviously are a stronger person than me. Please know we all care about you.
