On warm summer evenings time my wife and I sit on the deck as the sun goes down. We sit there with our ice tea and ramble on with family gossip and pointless discussion of the happenings around town or at work. This is all very reasonable and a pleasant way to enjoy each other’s company. I have come to believe that the soft scent of the flowers from the garden in the evening breeze acts as an intoxicant however, as it is also the time when ideas take shape in our mind. Ideas that evolve i...
This is my raised garden bed for the year. It has corn, cucumbers, peppers, and another vegetable (can’t think of it). Check out a video of the build here.
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...
Aug. 28/12 Today, preparing to take down the greenhouse, we found a little visitor. I should correct that and say that we found a rather large visitor – an “argiope” spider. Apparently they are common throughout the USA and in southern Canada (thus our visit). They are insect-eaters (has been reported to have eaten a small bat). He’s a big guy though. You can’ miss him! And here is the underside (note the zigzag element of the web)
Well, the plants have been in the ground for several weeks now and they are making progress.There are a substantial number of pictures on the camera, and so far, I have not managed to find the time to download them, let alone post them.The potatoes are showing about 15” of leafy stalk, and I have determined it’s time to box the hay bales in and add some more compost. I have resisted the urge to dig into the bale and see what’s happening in there, the greenery looks so healthy right now! I kno...
Hello everyone, I joined about a month ago primarily to learn as much from others being that I am new to gardening. Although I have lots to learn, I am in the beginning stages of building a rain garden that will be pollinator friendly. I decided to take on this project as part of an initiative in my home city to minimize the pollution that is introduced by rain or runoff as it is called, from my home into the nearby lakes and rivers. With that said, this blog will be to keep track of my overa...
Hi fellow GardenTenders, This video is from May 2, 2012 with some still photos taken on May 2, 3, & 4, 2012. With this update, I’m finally all caught up editing the footage that I shot before I found GardenTenters.com (via Lumberjocks) and started this blog. From here on out, I’ll try to keep the updates shorter and get them posted closer to the date they were filmed. I’m surprised at how much footage I have collected already. Lately, it has felt like it took...
This is my last update in the month of April. The growth has been great. I’ve had some failures, but the overall experience has been wonderful. It feels good just to walk outside and see all of this growing right outside my front door. The kids are also very involved and have been great sharing the watering duties with me. They also like to help me pick the ripe strawberries and salad greens that we have been gathering every few days. Enjoy, Jeff http://youtu.be/iGzpL_aLtXc
My Organic Garden Oasis #6: Chapter Six - Progress thru April 10, 2012. Lots of growth since the last update.
