I ran across a wheelbarrow in my Gardener's Supply Co. catalogue, Summer 2014,  gardeners.com.

Poly-Tough Cart: A two-wheel wheelbarrow.

Today's catch.

I had let weeds take over this bed.  This am I was clearing it to plant squash.   This was a surprise.  Didn't know if they were all leaf, or something good in the soil.


In addition to the turnips, the red radishes are the long variety "Cincinnati Market" and the white ones are "Icicle". There were also some massive slugs the size of a Volkswagen, munching away at leaves.

Randall, those are fantastic!  They  look like a heritage variety called "Accent".  We picked up rhizomes that were illegally dumped in a local dog park, and they grew into plants that look a lot like yours.

Very nice!

Chris, I'm guess the other flowers are phlox, but with my bad eyes, who knows?

Spud, those pussy willows root so easily.  Deer chewed on them a little but have mostly left them alone.  We are hoping for a hedge for some privacy along that roadside.  With the willow cuttings, it was free.  They grow fast.

Been posting a bit less lately.   Tired, working hard, and some gardening too.  Really relish the comments here.  They keep me going.  Thank you all!

They're beautiful, Randall! And what are the pink flowers - honesty?

Daniel: I gotta prove I "grow" irises, too! Happy Memorial Day, everyone. Enjoy your gardens.

Daniel, reading about Ning growing pussy-willows made me nostalgic for my youth.

We played by the snake river a lot, and there were many pussy-willows there.  I loved the little furry catkins, and dad taught us how to make whistles with the branches.

Glad to read they are easy to grow.

I hear ya, King. I'm having the same problems. And my dog makes things worse by digging after them.

Enjoying chives, cilantro, and, of course, asparagus!! Strawberries next.

For some reason, these turned out very nice this year.
