    :) Hello, I’m actually doing lots of gardening stuff now, so I’ll be a lot more active on here at last. Apparently I hadn’t logged a milestone for 10 months! I’m sorry, Folia! Updating all the changes in my plantings will take a while, I’m sure, but in the meantime I...

    Chilly seedlings

    Seed Starting 2014 garden
    Seedlings were slow to start and have been stuck at a half inch for more than 2 weeks, so I moved the whole set up out of the freezing cold basement (no radiators down there, so it’s stuck at about 52F, like a cave). It’s a complete and utter jerry-rig. If I hear a loud crash, that w...

    It’s true, I saw a bee. That must be the first one I’ve seen all through summer and halfway (almost) through our autumn. Come to think of it, I don’t recall any bee-sightings in spring, either. Mind you, I didn’t venture outside all that much during our recent drought. I...

    Fatigued... "treasures" in the woods

    Peach - Redhaven - Semidwarf Budding
    The weather was beautiful yesterday so we decided to explore more of the woods together. V has explored it far more than I have, it’s incredibly steep and filled with much thorny scruffy underbrushy stuff. Looking at the GIS we also estimated our boundary line and went to go check things ou...

    Unscathed! Time to plant more onion.

    We only spent 3 hours around 26F last night – a few things look damaged (a couple of Hostas, the peach tree blooms [peach tree is very young so blooms don’t matter this year except for pretty]) – but everything else looks about like it did yesterday. Considering the panic from t...

    Spring rain/snow/ice

    Have been carefully collecting old clear juice containers for cloches, now have up to 5 – unfortunately could use far more than that for tonight. So far, looks like we might go down to 22F tonight and 24F tomorrow night. The highs have been unusually warm, upper 70s to low 80s so it has tak...
