Re: Good Morning!

My rhubarb is barely growing here for some reason, not sure what is going on. Too hot for my liking today, so only doing the bare minimum here today... feeding and watering. Picked up my boat today from Spring tuneup, so fishing soon!!

Hope everyone is enjoying the sun, but staying cool.

Re: Best way to prevent pests

And having an intact ferret, that still has its scent glands, in your house, will help with social distancing as well, as nobody will want to come into your house. lol

Re: Garden Diaries, 2020

Well I will join in the conversation. Everything slow to get started here... rhubarb has barely started to grow and the early seeds I planted radishes, peas, lettuce, beets and carrots, only the radishes and peas have poked there the soil.
