That sounds like very bad smog, Randall. Good for you that you live in a clean area now!

Comment by Randall Smith on March 14, 2015 at 7:20am

Good for you, Chris. I spent 7 years in smoggy So. Calif., back when there were no "controls". I remember the burning eyes, persistant cough, and foul odor. I moved back to Indiana--away from any cities. Sorry you can't do the same. Some day, perhaps.

Randall, I must be stupid to make a vegetable garden twelve metres above a polluted street - but I'll do it anyway. There's one of those test points down in the street and the outcome for fine dust and other emissions are above the European norm. Why do I bother? I can't help myself - plants clean the air and only in this way can I prove to myself that I don't want to be part of the polluting community. Living here will probably take 13 months out of my life expectancy, I read somewhere, but that can't be helped either: I need a bag of money before I can move and besides, our two patients live near here. So today, Saturday, I'm going to dig and plant some more.

How was your day in the garden, Joan?

Comment by Joan Denoo on March 13, 2015 at 1:36pm

Each one of your messages is an inspiration to me that I greatly need today. I'm emotionally down for some reason, but I am headed for the garden now and expect to come inside full of enthusiasm and calm. Write to you later.

Chris, I've always maintained that if you're going to grow something, it might as well be edible. Herbs are great to grow in containers. Zucchini sounds interesting. The same theory is true for trees. Fruit and nut trees gives one blossoms (and bees) and delicious fruit--more bang for your buck!

Sounds like you're going to have a nice garden Chris.  I'm also looking forward to pictures of it.

The new containers for my roof garden arrived! It's a mess while I transfer earth and compost to the new containers and clear out the broken old stuff, but it's beginning to look good. The surviving perennials get replanted and I even planted courgette seedlings - zucchini. Can't wat to see what happens!

I've got the moles back in action too. The cat occasionally snares one, but not often enough!

Comment by Randall Smith on March 12, 2015 at 7:56am

Spring MUST be close at hand: the moles have become active; a family of chipmunks have been seen chasing each other around; squirrels and rabbits are checking out the yard and garden; robins and redwing blackbirds have been sighted. Oh, my dog is having a field day!
