Barbara, next trim. Hate getting smacked in the face by a vine so nice.
Well Barbara the lady that put deposit on some furniture has not shown, was to have picked up yesterday and pay me rest of money. I called my worker left a message about getting hassled by telephone/cable TV/internet company and they will not except even a $10, they want the full amount owing. Now to scrape up $80 from somewhere to get medical forms done by doctor in order to add some more money coming in monthly. That is $40 each form. A crime! Then the debt collector well he cannot get that much out of my pocket, it will take quite awhile until get a pay job again after December.
Had my baby beets/greens with dinner tonight. I found them sprouting in crack on my little patio. The veggie garden is on the otherside of the house so where did this come from.
I think I will go downstairs and see how cooler it is.
Nancy, I've never tried to propagate Honeysuckle, but give it a try, you just might get lucky. I might try this next yr.
Do any of you know anything about Aronia ? i do not know if they need full or partial sun or what kind of soil they like . so if any of you have any advice i would appriciate it .
Such a waste just throw into green bin. And would it be directly into soil or the water method? Save me some money and make a natural fencing to hide chain link fencing.
Can I propagate honeysuckle , the vine?
Grant, I would wish you luck, but I don't believe that you need it! They seem to be doing well, with your green thumbs! LOL! They look very good!
Hi everyone, okay it's been over THREE MONTHS since I planted these plumeria/ frangipani cuttings so I'm hoping (but not assuming, LOL) that at least some of them are rooting. We'll see, but I thought I'd share a pic as they do seem to be leafing out a bit. I've got them in a half day sun (which is very intense here) sitting on a hot cinder block to make sure they have lots and lots of bottom heat. I water them ONLY once a week. I found the instructions online and am following them slavishly, LOL, as my usual success rate on rooting them is only 10-20%, mostly due to overwatering. Hopefully they're rooting but I'm not celebrating quite yet, but three months DOES seem a long time for there to be a problem that hasn't shown up yet. In any case, I hope you'll take a look and enjoy. Happy gardening and propagating!
I need to get some starts of pineapple sage, geraniums, stevia and others from the garden. Hope I can be as successful with them as the stupid AVs that I really don't care that much about. The things I really like don't like me like Rex, fig trees, umbrella and some others.
I shoved an other AV leaf into a pot sitting around and the dang thing has some new baby leaves. If I'm going to continue to have AV I need to get some starts from my chiropractor. They have some verigated leafed ones and different kinds. All mine are this purple color, and now an other one on the way. geeeeeesh.
No yard sale this weekend. In basement shifting cause have relative coming for overnight, maybe more days.
Maybe items that have not sold I will take them to Value Village or Salvation Army.
I think because of the humidity I could lose my AV's. But maybe dehumidifier will help.
Lat dinner tonight.
Grant got the Loosestrife out of my gardens, a neighbor finally told me what it was. Those are never the seeds offering. Tiger lilies are protected plant/flower here I don't know about there in U.S. but I certainly have a lot.
