Isn't anyone out there gardening? What is your weather like? It has been 30-32ish for 4 days now at night. God gave us a blanket of clouds so I don't think it's that cold tonight. Didn't feel like it when I was unloading the car at 9-10:00. I looked at my thermometer that is kinda shaded out by the front door, it said 36 but it felt way warmer. This says it should get better after Sat night.
Sat full moon do your transplanting and growing seeds of below ground growers. I got more herbs and a bunch of pansies to plant and eat.
There was a grass fire/wildfire outskirts of Calgary along with wind did not help. Hoping to be able to do Yard sale , Friday through long weekend.
Tried to mow the school lawn for the first time this season got most of it done but had to quit I was frozen. It cooled down a bunch and dang wind wouldn't stop blowing the cold air right thru me. BRRRRRR To top it off I had turned the heat off in here so it was 68 in here when I got home. 75-76 is comfortable in here.Think I finally thawed out.
Might work on doing rows while doing yard sale. Get some seeds in early since to too late came up in Summer. Have to pick up more corn seed, my favourite I used last year, went well.
Sell as much as can at yard sale so less to take to friend's place on Vancouver Island,BC. Leaving May 5th, driving. Booked no smoking room/cabin just need a trustworthy person to be passenger an share on room/cabin cost, gas and ferry to and from Island.
Yep hard at it got slowed down by paying jobs and some white light flashes in my left eye followed by floaters. Grrrr, Spent a couple of hours in Dr. office last evening reading The New Square Foot Gardening book & latest seed catalog that come yesterday.
Gonna be in the 30s nights this week 33 Wed. http://www.msn.com/en-us/weather/today/Grandview,Washington,United-...
My peas and radishes came up a few days ago along the fence. Set up a soaker hose for them and hoses going every where else I need to drag them. I soooooo miss my automatic system. Still lots of digging to do out there and hopefully build a fence to keep critters out. Raised beds hopefully soon too but they will probably have to wait. Hate to do it but will have to cage the garden in from bunnies, birds and all the other critters around here. My friend called on the way by the other morning to tell me to chase 2 big black dogs away. They were digging holes in the nicely tilled field out front that he wants to plant oats or alfalfa in. Need a fence around the whole property, not just electric wire that isn't turned on.
Keryn hope you get a good fall garden before the cold sets in. Not like mine, 1/2 of it is growing now, the kale is getting up there in the pots out back, spinach too in pots and boxes. The perennial sorrel is up also, one salad burnet survived being covered in plastic, need to stick more seed of that in it is 5 yr old seed. Trying to use up old seed so put lots in some of the peat starters ended up w/lots in each little round and some with none of course. Trying to get the porch set up for when all those babies have to go into bigger pots. Wasps are coming back in there to set up their summer home too.GRRRRR! The young fellow cutting up trees to take for firewood was battling them too. Lots of rotted holes in that old maple tree he is having a hard time trying to figure out how to cut up the mess at the top of them. May end up with some wild yard art or try to burn them in the yard.
That gray fungus out front under ground really stinks now that it is above ground. Sat is the full moon so start your transplanting and plant seeds of below ground growers Sat night and all next week.
Keryn, not in Eastern Canada, still under snow. Some of the Prairie provinces into Spring. I am in Alberta still, flowers, none yet but greenry for now. Garlic row is coming up.
Looks like you have spring in USA and lots to do now. Vicky you are still hard at it, I see. I have just pulled out all summer crops and planted more seeds which have come up really quick with warm soil and Autumn rains, so hoping to have a second growing season before it cools down too much.
Yep can't seem to wake up or get in the mood today since it was raining earlier & worked so hard yesterday and last week. Then the next 2 days I have to do my paying jobs, dang it work gets in the way of my gardening. GRRRR!
I must say you have a lot of roots and lots of work.
Sorry the pics are so small when looking for them I can't find just the right on some times and I see I got one twice again.This is what that 6ft weed looks like when it is babies.
