    Mostly sunny, the drain-away, and more hot rocks

    Photo-upload-413336?1409117803 Yesterday after a day hunched over the computer doing finances for the potters' guild etc., I went out and yanked some more of the soaker hose. One way of getting some exercise and a good sweat going. Running back and fore with kettles of boiling water was good exercise too - I had to move a big ...

    Tomatoes Coming Up Strong - And So Is Autumn

    Photo-upload-413736?1409500260 It sure feels like autumn's coming up, and I've even spotted some leaves starting to change. I'm not overly thrilled about that, but I am sure thrilled with the tomatoes and how amazingly well they've been doing this year. I've had the best tomato harvests and plants I've ever grown, and the we...

    And here comes fall

    Photo-upload-413762?1409508468 Large harvest including all the remaining potatoes, couple large eggplants, smattering of tomatoes (terrible tomato year), carrots, chinese broccoli. So I've got a "roots" basket (1) and a "ratatouille" basket (main), which is what I'll make for dinner tonight. Fall clean up has started. S...

    Just doing a tidy up a bit..

    Now that the colder months here are drawing to a close, with spring literally around the corner, next week, its time for a tidy up of gardens. Here on folia and outside as well. So some of my gardens will be archived and some new ones started. Well until we do the next move, once we have so...

    Fall seeds starting

    Photo-upload-413534?1409331771 I am back from Tampa and there is lots of clearing to do. The weeds are taking over or so they think. We are clearing beds and collecting seeds. Also a lot of mulching needs to be done. Some kale plants have sprouted and beans are on their way. The big papaya from last year is being attack...

    Blooming Out of Season

    Photo-upload-413809?1409550328 Once again, some of the plants don't know what the hell season it is. Global climate change or whatever... I really should label the buds because half the pippin didn't leaf out at all this year and I'm thinking it may be due to sprouting at times it's not supposed to.
