Persimmon Tree Updates. 6.6.18
Of course, a horse chestnut tree! I didn't have one in my yard in Spokane, but a neighbor did, and the squirrels planted many in my garden, which I quickly pulled out. It was too big for my little city lot and all the other things I grew.
I wonder if Laura and Larry would go along with having running ducks? They are so pretty, they have interesting behavior patterns, they eat slugs and they don't tear up vegetable gardens. I'll have to approach the topic gently.
Daniel, your yellow rose has a very nice shape and the bud can stand up to any other variety. Your alliums remind me of my home. That gives me a comforting feeling.
I like your decision to thin the buds to get bigger fruit.
I like those purple allium globes. Very attractive. The yellow rose is also.
Daniel, gardening is suppose to be enjoyable. So, yes, you might need to cut back on some things. I'll sit in a lawn chair to allow my lunch to digest, but before 5 minutes are gone, I see a job that "can't wait". That's no way to relax. Nice photos, by the way.
I planted two more rows of corn yesterday. I like to stagger plantings to lengthen the season. However, my earlier plantings are a total failure. The cold and wet spring has caused the seeds to rot, evidently.
I enjoy seeing these lovely roses, they lift my spirits. I am not familiar with the beautiful pink flower.
The chickens and ducks look healthy. Are ducks as destructive to gardens as chickens? Both species provide excellent nourishment to growing things.
You ask a good question about the name for the female duck. The search is on:
"A baby duck is called a duckling, and an adult male is a drake. An adult female duck is called a hen or a duck, and a group of ducks can be called a raft, team or paddling. Generic terms like bird, chick and flock also apply to ducks."
So, you have a raft of ducks or a paddling of ducks. I didn't know that!
I was pretty upset to find 3 of my 4 kale plants laying (lying?) inert on the ground, evidently chewed off by a wascally wabbit. It didn't bother to eat the leaves. I got 4 replacements (from my kid's organic farm). Like so many other plants, I'll cover or fence them up at night.
I pulled a bunch of radishes yesterday and froze them. I googled how to do it. Hope it works.
From what I read, the white fungus is good for gardens.
