    Thanks, Oops!, and more storms

    We want to thank everybody for their kind words and thoughtful care packages. More than anything it’s been good to not feel alone in this challenging time, to know people do care. You’ve brightened our days! Tuesday I was unloading hundreds of pounds of feed, and I knew something wasn...

    Yesterday I planted an entire bed of Parisien carrots. Today I planted an entire bed of Mignon carrots, and two entire beds of two different kinds of kohlrabi. This is my second planting of these veggies since the weeds were so bad in the previous beds that I just pulled everything out. There ...

    TPS potatoes, rare beans, and a compost experiment

    This morning we harvested our first potatoes. We’ve grown potato plants for many years that never made potatoes. Ever. So it was quite exciting to discover our true potato seed potatoes had produced something! The soil in that field is looking very good, so I think we are on to something. I...

    A career launched and the harvest stops for nothing!

    The tiger-striped asparagus beans have impressively outwitted all calamities, and are positively thriving. I’m saving all the seed for increasing in next year’s planting. Today we harvested our first melon ‘Sweet Freckles’ from the melon landrace project and it is indeed a...

    Everything is Growing

    It has been raining every day. Everything is growing fast, and the weeds too. I had to trim my allamanda twice this year and needs trimming again. My wild lantanas are taking over. One of them was trimmed in May and I just trimmed it again. It was taking an area about three feet in diameter...

    I am so excited by one daylily bloom, it’s ridiculous :D I have been trying to gather daylilies that are neither orange nor yellow. The first one I bought was called ‘Strawberry Fields’. I waited three years for it to bloom, and when it did, it was a beautiful crystal-clear y...

    The camera batteries went dead about half a dozen pics, and the alternate set had no charge either, so I picked a few flowers and brought them inside for photographing later. They weren’t quite as choice by then, but oh well.

    The yellow lilies in the side yard are open and spilling their fragrance about. The second stalk doesn’t have flowers; slugs, I expect. That’s what usually happens to the poor things. The red-pepper style buds are orange tiger lilies in a pot out front. I’m still trying to get...

    Peak bloom day used to be about July 17, but it’s moved forward over the last several years, to about July 27-August 1. (This makes no sense to me— one would think it would move back but there you go.) So July’s Bloom Day now has a scattering of fully-bloomed plants, and swaths ...
