Hi Folks! Welcome to the blog.

So the new garden bed is going slow- only because of a rough work schedule (my fault). A lot of work is still needed; right now the timbers are just sitting there, not permanent.

Putting these pics back in here, mostly so I can keep up with progress. Luckily this is not a full sun bed, so I can wait a few more weeks before I need it.

Indoors- trying for some spring l...

Overcast Blues

Hi ya'll - and welcome to the blog.

Nothing's really growing right now, and it's too early for seeds. Now's the time to do replacement and repairs, before it gets too hot.

It's a really old bed along the east side of the house. The tall plant in the black pot is a Bay, and Skyepony is the only other person who has touched it in the last four years. This is one direction.

This is the other direction.

Plant Mystery Solved -

While walking a trail on StumpPassStatePark I came across this oddity. We named it "The NastyPod" but it probably deserves to be identified. Seemed more like a vine than a bush or tree... anyone?

Those nastypods were about 2-3 inches long, about the size of a flattened egg. Or a small flattened lemon. The ones pictured here were about chest-high; didn't want to get any closer. Maybe they explode or something for protection.

Too Many Cooks

By: aquak9, 2:24 PM GMT on April 27, 2015

Ooops, I mean too many CUKES!

I bought some new cuke seeds, and found some old cuke seeds. One of them is called Diva, and it's supposed to have all female flowers- meaning, LOTS of cucumbers.

The Tri-Star cuke is doing good, too- and actually, I had much better germination with the Tri-Star, than with the Sweet Success, or the Diva. Thanks Skye for the Tri-Star seeds.

(Where's InsideUK? - I have a job for he...

Transplant and keep growing part 2

Sigh. This is in-progress, there will be more pics.

Last monday I picked lettuce. I pick lettuce every monday; folks at work know they will get a bag at the beginning of the week, it stays fresh. But it keeps re-growing so quickly! So here are some before and after pics so you can see how thick the lettuce is every monday, and how hard I cut it back.



Before (with parsley):
