Moving an Established Fig Tree. Delayed post from Nov 2017
Randy, that's a beautiful house!
This year we netted the blueberries, and the result was more than I knew that bush could produce. Amazing how much those birds usually eat. So a pie was in order...
Yesterday I got the first of the sweet corn. It wasn't much, but tasted very good. That was from the first few plants that germinated this spring. I think subsequent batches well be more.
Very attractive porch garden Randy. Is that your porch?
Daniel, edibles and "eyeables" (flowers). Very nice.
You can say that again Lilac!
Russet Potatoes, dug yesterday. Not a bad yield. This was my best potato year
Sweet corn starting to yield.
Peppers are netted to keep deer from browsing the plants. Banana peppers, Jalapenos, Thai, and Cayenne.
Raised bed planted in July, Chinese radish, Chinese cabbages, turnips, and Daikon. All from old seeds. Coming along nice. I tried not to plant more than we would use.
New enclosure for blackberry patch. There are still collard greens growing in it. Next Year I think the blackberry plants will be quite large. First tastes, these horticultural types are larger, much sweeter and less bitterness, compared to the wild ones. I haven't figures out how to cook collard greens in a way that I like, yet.
Lots of fruits now, peaches, figs,grapes, plums. Makes me love gardening.
My annual flowers experipment - "What can I grow that survives rabbits and deer, and does well in the hot dry weather" - gladiolas do well but fizzle out pretty fast. Zinnias turned out the most colorful. Marigolds, OK, but limited colors and not crazy about orange. Cosmos thrived the best, but colors limited there too, mostly one color. These zinnias are in a deck flower barrel.
These zinnias were planted in deer territory, and the deer didn't bother them at all. Rabbits ate the tops for a while, but they came back too tough for bunnies.
No worries, Spud.
Bertold, hope I didn't upset you with my post. Years ago, I communicated with a guy in a movie site that went by the name of "Stenchofpiss". I always wanted to ask him why he used such a repulsive name, but never did because I liked him and didn't want to take the chance of him getting upset with me.
Sorry Bertold, I'm with Joan about that grotesque avatar. I very much appreciate and agree with your posts, but I'm constantly repulsed by that avatar.
Maybe I shouldn't even have commented. It's probably my problem and I need to deal with it.
