    New trellis for backyard Clematis

    Photo-upload-426463?1427332727 I've had a hard time finding tall, durable, stand-alone, not-exhorbitantly-priced trellises locally, so searched and found one on Amazon. Of course when you buy a 3D trellis that's 7.5 feet tall through the mail, you have to assemble it before using! But the assembly wasn't too bad; I got i...

    Update on last week's planting out of indoor seedlings: Basils, Verbena, Gaillardia

    Photo-upload-426474?1427334337 Last week on a work night I planted out a 40-cell tray of indoor-started seedlings that were starting to outgrow their cells. It was dark by the time the last seedling was planted, so I didn't get any photos then, but I snapped a bunch of photos during my lunch break today! Which means that it'...

    Lancaster County PA

    Photo-upload-426510?1427376175 Touring Amish country. I hoped to see some forgotten technology here, and I did find a few things that might apply. The photo is an antique tray for test-sprouting corn for seed. Each depression is large enough for 6 seeds from each ear to be tested. Remove kernels from one ear, top and bot...

    Be careful where you plant

    Photo-upload-426769?1427669044 Came home from church today to see that the pergola over the walkway has been wrenched apart by the Wisteria. I can't be too mad at it since it is just about ready to give us its annual burst of bloom. However, it did pull the post out of alignment about 8 inches and caused the supporting over ...

    More crocuses and uncovering the last of the roses

    Photo-upload-426431?1427299786 The snow is going fast so I spent some time in late afternoon removing leaves and dried plant stalks which provided a covering for the roses. 'Crazy for You', 'A Shropshire Lad', 'Blanc de Courbert', 'Morden Blush' and 'Westerland' had already been disinterred from mounds of rotting leaves and sp...

    Baby snap peas, Blooming pear tree, Lily pads breaking dormancy, and more random updates

    Photo-upload-426494?1427336683 It's almost snap pea season -- one of my favorite fresh-from-the-garden vegies! Based on the number of flowers on our pear tree we might have a hearty harvest this fall! Our lily pads are breaking dormancy, and our frog is hanging out among the floating leaves. It's time to remove the gree...
