    More rain, and magenta flowers

    Photo-upload-414659?1410360177 Sunday morning we had a heavy rain for about two hours, giving us 1.6 inches. Our annual total is now 18.95". This is probably more rain than we've had in the last two years totaled. Oddly, our river isn't flowing and our crossing is dry. This week it's supposed to be in the 80's which will be a ...

    flowers in the corn bed

    Photo-upload-414670?1410368291 I repotted the small hostas in the front bed, in the blue pots. I took the two baby trees (some kind of Japanese maple that seeds down at this place) out of the pot there and I thought I'd put an evergreen shade plant in that pot instead. I can't remember what qualifies that would be good for t...

    Camera recommendations?

    Photo-upload-414668?1410367117 The camera I've been using is having trouble focusing and I'm planning to buy a new one soon. This one was a loaner from a friend when my big, fancy camera died about five years ago, and it's been so convenient that I never replaced the original one. I've liked that it fits into my back jeans ...

    Ho ho ho..

    Photo-upload-415071?1410803219 .. I've just had to un-archive the mistletoe planting (I thought it had washed away in all the rain we had this winter) But no, it is still hanging on.

    September blooms!

    Photo-upload-415069?1410799058 So many things are blooming right now! I will just show you a few of them. One of my favorite flowers is Pearl Milkweed Vine. There's a lot of it down in the creek, but this one is growing on the fence by Coop Two. It's pretty difficult to catch in flower since the flowers are green and not ea...

    the veg wedge, or, just one more picture!

    Photo-upload-414675?1410368316 The corn he planted and gave up on before he let me take over that bed for transplants actually managed a scrawny looking ear. We did work on the blueberries. The mulch is supposed to be 6" thick and he thinks this will keep the grass out of it. I think he is dreaming. From my own experien...

    Fall Sowing for 2014

    Photo-upload-414922?1410659693 Spent a rainy saturday cleaning up the garden and sowing Fall crops. I'm pretty excited about hopefully seeing broccoli and cauliflower. I've had little success with broccoli before, but I believe my friend's house location will cause it to grow quickly. Hopefully that, cauliflower and some ne...

    Not ready for Fall! Long update

    Was it the high soil temperatures? The lack of rain? Maybe 1% of the fall seeds I've planted have done _anything_!!! V is starting to suspect that this giant batch of soil he made up is simply too acidic. The garden could also use a MASSIVE cleanup. I've been pretty bummed out/overwhelmed over th...
