Planting Annual Flowers, Brussels Sprouts, Collards, Tomatoes. 4.23.18
I read online about a gardening tip.
Take a few stems of roses and cut 1" off from the bottom stem. Dip the cut off stem in cinnamon. Poke a hole in the potato and insert a rose stem into the hole. Set on the shelf for a couple of weeks,When the rose has established new roots in the potato plant the potato into the flower bed and over time watch grow into a beautiful rose bush.
I wonder if this can be done with other flowering plants like carnations? Must the flower stem be woody and stiff to be successful growing from a potato?
The last something happening in Ky was the Ark Encounter. Have you been there yet?
Kathy, Randal, and Idaho Spud,
If you decide to go, let us know how it went.....and perhaps a few pixs too.
Total eclipse is 60 miles north of me. I have welding goggles, but will have to check if they are rated 14 or better. My sister told me that when young, we used to have contests to see who could look at the sun the longest. Based on that, I think the "going blind" part of the warnings is over-stated. However, I don't doubt part of my eye problems are related to those contests.
Thanks, Thomas. I just might drive down there--200+ miles or so.
Back to the garden: Asparagus is winding down, as are snow peas, but here comes a variety of other greens. Had my first green beans last night. Kale, chard, brocolli are ready. And, of course, I have a lettuce/spinach salad every day. I may be turning green before the summer's over!
Daniel, will they ever take you off of the oral chemo?
Great news, Daniel!
Being an avid gardener and outdoor person I think this group would be a good place to announce that a total sun eclipse will be in the U.S. in August, 2017. The eclipse path will start in Pacific Ocean and enter Salem,Or..... and continue across U.S. to arrive at Charleston, SC and then out into the Atlantic Ocean.
In your state, Ky, the total eclipse can be fully viewed in Hopkinsville, KY.
Many people are reserving camping spots near the eclipse path.

Good news, Daniel! Me thinks it's the garden work that's keeping you going, not the meds!
We got an inch of welcomed rain overnight. I never heard a thing.
