Well, This Blog post will be kind of short. I was having issues with the City and my other property. Getting on me bout the wood and things in the yard from the Previous house I demolished, took me a few years to get the help needed to get things cleaned up. Now that everything is cleaned up, All I got to worry about is getting 2 mounds of dirt leveled out and rolled out before next years growing season. So on a good note, Everything is coming together nicely, Yard is cleaned up, Woo...
I can’t wait for late Spring to get here or even early Spring to get some of my Plants started for Summer Planting. I rescently tore down the house next to me that I bought. Now I have a BIGGER yard for myself and my Dogs to Roam around Plus a Garden Plot I can get going. I’m thnking of building 4 to 6 Beds 4×4 with Cinderblocks 2 High. This will also give me the ability to Plant some border Plants in the holes of the Blocks to prevent Pest from getting to my Plants. ...
In 2013, I grew Hopi Blue Dent corn. I ordered one package from a small company in Maine, Pinetree Seeds. I planted the corn in the garden area at the top of sunny southern slope, in the piece of land where my sons had grown potatoes last year. At the end of the season, we had covered the ground in cardboard and a thick layer of goat hay bedding mulch. Given the thick covering we had created, I thought that starting them indoors and transplanting them outside would be a good idea. The on...
Aug. 9/13 Yesterday, we stopped at a farmer’s market that sells “locally” grown fruits/veggies. (as local as she can find it, anyway). I picked up 4 quarts of green beans and canned them up (so much easier to buy in bulk so I can fill the pressure canner… I don’t get enough in my garden being ready at the same time) and I got 4 dozen sweet corn. We are eating 1 dozen and I canned the rest of the corn today. I husked them and Rick took the corn off the co...
Does anyone or has anyone already got some Land Tilled up for a Garden this year? I’m on the Look out for some helping hands to help me till up a section in the yard for a Garden. I’m in a Chair and can’t handle a Tiller to do it myself, It really Sucks cause it limits my ability to do some things like this when I need it most for the outside time. Oh well, I can still do the Planting on my own lol. Looking to get some Beans, Tomatos, maybe Corn and some peppers th...
Cox’s Orange apple. I have a few more of these but not too many, only about 1/2 dozen or so apples on this young tree. Nashi pears – delicious! Sweet 100 cherry tomatoes Grape Harvest 3 of these things belong together….Can you guess which is the store bought tomato and which is the vine ripened, homegrown tomato? More tomatoes Harvest bounty Corn – absolutely delicious! Too many grapes, so I picked two collanders ...
The gopher didn’t see its shadow so it’s only 6 more weeks of summer( I think…lol). Things are beginning to ripen up. Sunflowers Sorghum is mile high and the ‘broom’ is blooming after 90 days of growth Corn husks are forming: Giant cauliflower – fed me for 4 days and the grapes beginning to show some color is bittersweet – beautiful but a reminder that the seasons are changing
2 feet of rain in September, followed by 8 weeks drought in spring with 30C+ temps ( 90F+) followed by too much rain and a flood from the same storm which is (still) dumping on the Aussies got things off to a strange start but the combination of the moisture and heat and long days has brought things right in a hurry. The corn is knee high by 4th of Jan so we must be on schedule! and there is a veritable food forest thing happening. Here you can see the corn in the forefront, the sorghu...
Well this will be my First Blog entry here at GardenTenders. As you all know I am a bit new to this community, I do have a Lumberjocks page I guess would be associated with the same area. I am a Scrollsawer, I cut many things out of thin wood and I do some woodworking as well. But also I’m Kinda a gardner as well. I’m not a 100% Avid Gardner, I’m borrowing a Piece of Land from a Friend that that has a garden. He’s letting me use a 15’x30’ Section...
And here’s the rest in a much wider view. The garden along the walk is popping left and right. In a few days I figure there will be color the whole way down. So going to love breaking up this sidewalk and putting in something more flowing down through here. It’s almost like we were meant to be here.. This is what is across the road in the ditch.. Runs for a good way either direction and almost in conjunction with our property line. The dog run is still looking jam p...
