Eat them, Spud! There are many dandelion recipes on the web!

Dandelions have taken over my neighborhood this year.  I've never seen so many.  The girl across the street has a lawn that's almost more yellow than green.  She mows them down every couple of days, but they pop-up again in a day.

I've been fighting them in my garden, and today, I pried-up the last of them from my garden.  They'll come up again from the roots, but if I keep them from growing too many leaves, they should die after a while.

I think they're pretty, but they're a scourge.

Interesting post about snakes.

I was clearing some weeds around one of the hugelkulture beds and pulled out a snake egg. I thought it was a mushroom and was going to squish it but it didn't squish. I accidentally broke the membrane. If I had known it was a snake egg I would have put it back where it came from.
There are only four poisenous snakes in ky. The cotton mouth that stays near water. The copperhead, and two types rattlesnakes that are usually found in deep woods or the mountains. I did see a pygmi rattlesnakes lying on a pile of lumber near the shed that's closest to the woods a couple years ago. Rattlesnakes are endangered species in ky.

And I have three peaches about the size of small plums on a tree that came up about four years ago from a peach pit I transferred from the compost bin. And four more peach trees that I started the same way. The tree seedlings are about twenty inches high.

Odd. Most things I plant here turn purple. Yellow stays yellow but red and all blues turn purple after a few years. Some whites stay white and some turn pink. Interesting anyway.

I have a patch of bluebells where a few show up white now and then.

I've had a bed of yellow irises for fifteen years. This year there was one completely white one that bloomed in that bed. It's beautiful but odd.
Has anyone else had​this happen

The number of trees you have is a lot more than I imagined.  You should be called "Treeman".

That Ginkgo tree you're standing under is amazing.  It looks to be 40 or 50 feet high.

That duck is so cute, and it looks to be my favorite color, light yellow-green.

Daniel, thistles are horrible.  I fought them for a while when I lived in a small community.  At the time I was a believer in Roundup, which killed almost everything with one spraying, but it took 2 or 3 to kill thistles.

Reading your latest Growing Greener...blog, I was amazed at how many  trees you have as well as others.  How many trees do you have in total?
