Planting Annual Flowers, Brussels Sprouts, Collards, Tomatoes. 4.23.18
This morning around 8:30 it started snowing. It was slush snow and two hours later the snowflakes are the sizes between a nickle to a half a dollar coin and is accumulating on the ground....and it is twirling. Kids are going to have fun after school is out. My two dogs are outside playing in the snow.
Photo taken through my kitchen window is somewhat fuzzy. Sorry. There are two bluebirds sitting on top. Forsythia in bloom.
Kathy, so true (plums plummet). It's brutal today. My bluebird pair seen (hopefully) in this photo I just took, are freezing. And the insects they eat are hiding. I'm thinking about making another bluefird box today. I already have 4 of them, but 3 have never been used for some reason. Bluebirds are fussy about their homes. I can't seem to download my photo. I'll try later.
Thank you very mulch..er much for the wood chip article.
Randall, is your wood burner furnace the only source of heat for your home? Several winters ago and for one winter my family went on a heating diet and used only the fireplace as the source of heat. We've use pine, oak and poplar. Poplar is terrible for home heating firewood. I used pine first to start the fire quickly and heap the oak into the fire for the rest of the day. There are pros and cons between conventional heating and fireplace heating. However, what my family fondly remembers is the get together in the same fire place room doing family stuff.
Daniel, I had to LOL when I read your "Randy is wise" comment! I'm definitely NOT. I do know what kinds of wood make best and worst firewood since I've burning for 45 years. By the way, Tom, I have a wood burner furnace in my basement.
I will be planting fewer potatoes this year after reading that eating them isn't the best thing for one's good health. More sweet, less white (potatoes).
Envy no more, Daniel. My 30+ year old apricot trees have seldom produced any edible fruits. It blooms, but that's about it. Every year, hope springs eternal. Temps this weekend are supposed to be in the teens. That'll be the the death of early blossoms.
Daniel, thanks for the Wood Chip mulch article. I've read similar before, but like the reminder of some things I've forgotten. I plan on asking the tree pruners I spot this year for their chips.
