Re: About New Plants Planted Last Spring

We wanted to get some netting for our berry bushes, but there was none to be found. I think a plant that I relocated is actually a weed. And I thought I was moving a gaillardia. I have to figure out what it is. The little Magic Carpet spireas are blooming, but the white spreas aren't. They are too s...

About New Plants Planted Last Spring

Last Spring, I planted an Asiatic Patio Lily "Buzzer". This year it was going to bloom; it had 2 or three buds. Today, I saw that the buds were chewed off. All the day lilies are intact. I'm going to blame a chipmunk because I don't think my garden toad did it. On a good note, the Clary Sage that I ...

Re: Garden Diaries, 2020

Being a bit more on the ball this year, I thinned out the kale this morning. The addition of baby kale in a salad is yummy. Picked more radishes; we had pan fried radishes and radish greens the other night. It was quite good! Had a radish leaf salad last night with radishes, and tomato, black olives...

Re: Rain

We had a brief rain blow through here yesterday, enough to rinse dust off some leaves.

Re: First 2020 set broody

When I let out our birds, they head straight for the shade under the small barn lean-to, which is a nice breezeway. Mother hen and the young ones, head in the opposite direction to the shade of a small evergreen.

Re: Coronavirus - how much do you worry ?

Here's yet another good reason for keeping the Canada/US border closed. https://www.ctvnews.ca/health/coronavirus/people-in-alabama-are-throwing-covid-19-parties-with-a-payout-when-one-gets-infected-official-1.5007903 Wow, no kidding. Those young folk must be bored out of their trees to go to that ...

Re: First 2020 set broody

Another update: When I let the hens out to free range, I also open the partition door to let out mother hen and all the chicks. The incubator chicks are about 6 wks old and the broody hen chick is about 4.5 weeks. They youngest chick is noticeably smaller but all are getting along. The entire flock ...

Re: Garden Diaries, 2020

The only veggies ready in our garden are radishes, lettuce, and young kale to thin out and use in salads. Yummy! It is a year for plants being infested with bugs because of the lack of rain. Ugh! The chamomile has aphids; zucchini and squash have beetles (and were therefore dusted). Some of my flowe...

Re: Garden Diaries, 2020

I kept finding little indentations in the soil in my flower garden like something had started digging, and they didn't look like footprints (thinking deer stepping in). But there are chipmunks. One early evening, DH discovered a toad sitting in one of the spots. I have a garden toad! And it has lots...
