Our dawdling amaryllis finally bloomed in time for Valentine's Day.
Atheist camelias coming out
Why thank you so much, Joan! I'll pass that on to them today. I have forgotten what all is on their website. I think I've mentioned the land has been in our family for 150 years--once over 700 acres, now shrunk to 120 owned by me (us). When my SIL began taking over the sustainable farming part of it (about half), he INSISTED on naming the farm after my mother's maiden name (Silverthorn). I tried to talk him out of it, but to no avail. How fortunate I am that my daughter choose him 10 years ago. As I have said over and over, "Who would have thunk it?" (the outcome).
Silverthorn FarmJust received my first post from Silverthorn Farm. Your kids have a wonderful farm and Facebook page, Randy.
And I understand that nightcrawlers, i.e., earthworms, were imported from Europe to the U.S. For you that googled it, true?
Hope you can get your energy back, Daniel. Do you still have chickens? If so, do you eat them? I know you're a vegetarian, but....
Chris try earthworm, nightcrawler. This is what I got.
Daniel, what is a nightcrawler? The only thing that comes up when I google is a movie.
Daniel, "solarize" that's the word! Thanks. Why make work for myself, eh? If it works, don't fix it - I'll add a bit of compost and call it good. And this year I'll make a note of what I plant in each pot and next year rotate. Sorry you don't have the energy to do what you so love in the way you want - glad you are able to do some things though. Your situation makes me realize how grateful I am that I'm able to do what I do - thanks to you and your inspiration! ((((Daniel))))
Chris, it's nice you have someone to help you - and I'll bet she is glad to have you as a sitter. I've discovered it is alot like the only way to eat an elephant - one small bite at a time. Otherwise I completely overwhelm myself with all my plans.
Today I actually get to lay out my spiral herb garden - or at least my version of one. :) Plant on!
I have to, Barbara, all my containers are out of shape and torn. First I'll have to get hold of my neighbour who'll drive me to a garden centre and help me carry (I'm her cat-sitter so I can count on her). Then compost and the earth I used one and a half year ago, then clean up my garden space and sow vegetables and herbs.
