    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...

    Wildlife in the compost bin

    I always open the compost bin lid slowly and very carefully as in the past some rather large huntsmen spiders have lived under the lid, spinning some rather large cocoons for their eggs. Being arachnophobic, I don't want them running over my hand when I lift the lid. However, the other day when...

    New boot for greenhouse #2

    Photo-upload-415470?1411238931 Looks like the rollup cover won't be needed for another week, so decided to rollup the cover and install a boot. I cut the boot out of 8 mil UV resistant black poly from Menards. I made it 16 x 110 and used tape to close the ends. If a frost is in the forecast, it's an easy task to remove the hol...

    Giving up!

    Photo-upload-415426?1411159535 As of September 2014 I've given up my half plot as I couldn't spend nearly as much time as I needed to on it & the needs of our daughter & grandchildren have also restricted my time there & a third reason is that we don't get much out of it as we are not keen on many vegetables that can be grown ...

    Garlic! You either hate it or love it!

    I must admit, I love garlic! Not the stuff that comes from China in a white netting bag, but good old Aussie garlic, preferably home grown. Having a reasonably small block of land, and trying to grow as much as possible on it, garlic seemed a bit beyond my home gardening abilities, but a friend o...
