5 acres and I'm still growing in pots. hmmmmm
Don't know if you can see that the wind is taking the metal roof off the lean to. Think the one building across from the trailer is going to go down one of these days if we don't get it down first.It was creaking like crazy the other day while the wind was blowing. Also I took so many screws out of the trailer to take it down that a window is swaying in the wind too. Hope the few screws along the top hang on til we get back to that project too.
It's plenty warm in the living room so these are growing like crazy I need to put them into pots.
Dang night time temps don't look good at all again this week. The big farmers are having a hard time keeping grapes and cherries warm thru all these nasty cold nights. Nice one minute nasty the next usually right after I change into a sleeveless shirt. Heavy flannel all day today tho. Here are some pics I took just now and a while ago. Oh and I just went out to check on the peas and radishes along the fence and all the radish greens are completely gone out there. GGGGGRRRRRRRRR!http://www.msn.com/en-us/weather/today/Grandview,Washington,United-...
William thank you. I hope you are safe and not running from tornadoes. It turned nasty here again, chilly and windy. I was out watering and it looks like some critter is chomping on my radishes and peas. Think the birds are stealing my strawberries too. GRRRRRRRRRR! I'm going to have to build a fortress around my gardens. Get more motion sprinklers, and try some new things I read on line. They said to put sunflower seeds in a 5 gallon bucket for ground squirrels. I don't know if they are munching or the rabbits. When something was eating my parsley last year I put out wads of my hair and that stopped. Growing in tall pots and the stair stepped boxes seem to work for the ground hugging pests but the strawberries in the boxes are getting plucked out. So need to get the porch screened instead of fiberglassed. Wasps still hovering around there too. Dang why is growing your own food so hard? And build a huge greenhouse frame over the back yard so I can screen it in summer and cover in plastic in winter. Oh and we are having a freeze warning again tonight and maybe tomorrow night too. I transplanted more herbs then put the sprinkler out there today and was sinking in the soft wet dirt while moving the hose.
Vicky onions get planted 1 inch deep. Well I got 2 more beds cleaned out and added compost to them from my barrows and added some dirt to I have one more bed to do today and waiting for the weather to make up it's mind to do what it wants to do. I have 3, 6 ft pipe six inches in Dia. that I am going to try planting Strawberries in. I have the holes cut out all ready I just need to put them in a tub to get them to stand up straight. I am hoping I can do that today as well. I have to fix the shade cloth over the tomato bed for the hail pulled it out last week and I'll be set to go.
When I am done with this project that was started last year I will be digging the dead grass out of the veg garden. Then I can get the purple and red spuds in and the onions. If it ever really truly warms up will start planting seeds out there.
Same here as soon as I put my no sleeve shirt on and went back out the wind, ugly black clouds and a few drops of rain got me.Now it it just too dang cold out there to care. Got some chives and roman chamomile transplanted, before I was frozen thru. Leveled more dirt but lots more to move.
Finally scattered eggshells on veggie garden for this year. Tomorrow my usual walk to cafe to get used coffee grounds for somewhere inside yard gardens.
Overcast sort of with stormy slate grey clouds moving over City. Sun still sort of out.
Gardening Jones so glad it is warming up for you over there. I had to come in and shed my flannel, looked out and it was breezy so put on the long sleeve. But it is supposedly 64 out there so I over dressed at least til evening when it cools off and 36 tonight. The wind comes and goes around here in the irrigated desert. Still looking at the front yard and it still slants toward the house grrrrrr. Some of my peas are close to 6" tall but slowed way down with last weeks freezing temps. Have a few strawberries hanging on the newly planted ones. Pulling out some old and dead herbs some lived some croaked. They only get morning sun next to the house right now, maybe more once the trailer gets out of here and the sun gets higher.
