Lovely, Daniel.

A couple of last pics.  I over-nurture bearded irises, which seem to prefer neglect.  They didn't do well but were not a total loss.  Most are historic varieties, developed decades to centuries ago.

Hello all.

I haven't had so much to say lately.  Work, energy, house renovation, and some gardening.   Looks like you are all doing great in your horticultural pursuits!

This year my fruit tree grafts all took off.  Now my plums and apples are multigrafted with 5 to 10 varieties.

The bee meadow is awesome.  I can't take credit, Ning did all of the work

My  seedling tomatoes are growing like gangbusters.  We have Roma beans, Chinese wide beans, about 10 varieties of squash and pumpkins, all grown from seeds. I need to buy some replacement chilis, mine are stunted, probably planted too early outside.

I hand fertilized about 20 pawpaw flowers, and all but one fell off anyway.  I watch that remaining one closely every day, might still get my first pawpaw this year.  Asiminia triloba.

Really glad to see you are all growing great gardens and getting outside, watching things grow, and soaking in the wonders of nature, botany, horticulture.  That's awesome!

Right, Randall.  I fertilize with Miracid and with organics, and I mulch with pine needles, but still have problems--except for the two that bear well.  It's odd.  Friends with similar trouble have told me they've had luck transplanting to a different spot.  So far I've been too stubborn to try that.

Sorry about adding the "e" to your name, Don. Inadvertant. I can commisserate with you about your blueberry bushes. Over the years, I've planted maybe 20. 3 survive, one barely. Acidy soil is extremely important, and mine is highly alkaline. I add aluminum sulfate to bring down the pH.

Also on the left (green now) is a black currant bush in it fourth year. 

Comment by Don on May 25, 2015 at 8:39am

On the left are 8 highbush blueberries.  I've had some trouble with them down through the years.  Two have thrived, two have endured, and the others have been replaced more than once.  Don't know why.  This season, two of the newer ones budded and leafed out well, but now some stalks seem to be dying back.  Must be something in the soil.  I probably should give up on the plantings that just have not worked and put new ones in elsewhere.

And what's growing on the left side, Done?  Enjoying the progression photos. I may do the same.

Comment by Idaho Spud on May 25, 2015 at 6:11am

Don, great garden in a beautiful setting.

Comment by Plinius on May 25, 2015 at 1:22am

Looks good, Don, and a lot of work!
