Moving an Established Fig Tree. Delayed post from Nov 2017
The sun shines, evidence of frost occurred last night, the greenhouse has seedling and plants ready to go out into the growing boxes, and I have energy for more than a couple hours of chores. Spring definitely continues and the colors of the forest of fir and cedars ripens with the growth of needles on the Larch.
Dominic had his "rub" this morning and I will give him a thorough brushing when we go outside.
The menu today includes a pot of beans and the fourth day of serving salad greens from the greenhouse.
Bertold, you hit on two of my favorite topics, dogs and gardens, not in any particular order.
"Crap, we've got Carpenter Ants" too.
Kathy, I agree with you about Roundup. Convincing a grown daughter of anything takes lots of reasoning. She is a logical and rational type of person (for which I am grateful). I just have to out "logic and rationalize" her!
I think I figured out why my vegetable seeds were not sprouting. Laura used Roundup on the lawn to kill dandelions the other day, and when Larry mowed the lawn, he put the cuttings on the compost heap.
I still have not convinced Laura not to use Roundup because she is so determined to have a pristine lawn. She said I could grow all of them I wanted, but not in the lawn.
Last summer, I picked dandelions blooming in the grass every morning to take them to the chickens, but I just do not have the energy to do that anymore.
The compost I used in the garden was two years old, consisted mostly of horse manure, and feels as perfect loamy soil should. I just did not realize it contained Roundup.
Correction: it was not Rooster Cogburn that the family watched kidnapped, it was the younger fowl that were captured by coyotes.
