    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...

    10-soil wicking bed test

    The 10-soil wicking bed test is underway. This test should take 50 days or so. I planted beans in 10 self-watering planters with 10 different soils today. The goal is to find the proper soil for "my wicking bed 1 design()":http://myfolia.com/journals/134155-wicking-bed-1-a-luggable-planter-i...

    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 ...

    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...

    Grapes. Grapes everywhere

    The doc's instructions were no heavy lifting. Nobody said I couldn't get out there and do something garden-y. 0-:-) The concord grapes had so much black rot going on - cold damp summer made sure of that - I didn't think there would be much for grapes this year. Wrrrroooonnnng! 6 bags. F...

    Short Trip to Georgia

    Photo-upload-415523?1411337989 This weekend we went to Powder Springs, GA where my niece Cora lives. We had been meaning to visit with her for a while. Four years ago she purchased this cute house and invited us to come see it. Now she just sold it and we had to come see it before she moves out next month. She has given ...

    Frogs are back as fall approaches.

    Given that the original group of fall seeds did nothing, I threw more out into the deck bed. This is our most accessible raised bed. I went very heavy on the seeds, emptying out packets, and lo and behold there are now various seedlings! I used a salad mix from the local seed company, Sow True Se...
