William I hate to tell you but that grass will grow around and right thru all those things, then you will have a fine mess. The only way to get rid of it is to dig to China and get every last little root. Then make sure no seeds blow back in from somewhere else. They had a big fire years ago at Hanford Nuke site and the only thing that grew back was that stuff. It was killing off the natural stuff. You may have to grow in pots too. Rite Aide has nice big ones, rectangular and square ones all 1/2 off all season and made in the USA. Did you put a floor in your greenhouse?
Good to hear you all have plans. Strawberries are hard to grow here due to slugs & ants so I grow them in large pots along with my cannas. Easier to keep weed free also! I finally purchased a gro lite for the bedroom desk & put my heat mat under there. That's what I needed to keep those orchids alive apparently. The room is without a heater but between two others so the heat mat keeps it 60 or more. I can't wait to start seeds in there & probably will add another tier. William, I use plain cardboard for the ongoing battle against grass & black/rasp berries. Ask the stores.
Had a deer relaxing in my yard, none back thank goodness, it is the darn rabbits. I hope they moved a block over. Trying to put some pictures up.
Good to hear from you William. Been quiet here. Still picking up bucket of used coffee grounds from cafe up the street and putting on veggie and now flower gardens. Expecting more snow, Yuk! Happy New Year to all!
Good afternoon and Happy New Years To you all. Glad to see you have been working on spring plants for the new year Vicky. So sorry I haven't written any thing for the past several months. Just been so busy doing nothing and I mean nothing. I did receive 5 seed ordering books yesterday, just don't know that I am going to do any gardening this year. I am so frustrated over the dang Bermuda grass getting in my beds and taking over I don't know what to do about it. I thought I had it licked but it showed up big last summer. I had 2 beds totally grown over with it and my wonderful wife went out and dug and pulled for 2 days on one bed. I am thinking about taking all the dirt out and sifting it and laying weed netting down and black plastic and cutting sheet metal strips and hammering it a foot or so down in the ground on the outside of the bed.
Working on getting my sun room a green room and sitting area for me and another and have tea. I took corn off my list to eat, anything corn, all bad. Got some potatoes and they have eyes so might plant a row when Spring comes and soil warmed up. I wish one neighbour on one side of me would clean up after her dogs in her yard , the smell and when snow melts or rains it runs into my yard. Sold tent trailer this year and snowblower. So if I can sell bungalow be much less to put in moving truck and less weight.
Have to tend to myself now, I think got a cold or other coming on. So much for Sunday New Year's Day potluck lunch at church.
Hopefully sell 2 different items people called about last night and if can get back up to paper and relist free ads and recorrect one ad that has people calling for the wrong thing the way they put ad at paper. Bye for now, busy today.
Here is my garden now it is the right moon cycle tomorrow is the new moon plant your above ground growers. I planted herbs and greens in the house they are peeking out already some were just planted a couple days ago. Between snow storms and cold weather there isn't any outdoor growing right now. I never got around to getting any of the little greenhouses up or any tunnels over the beds.
Not to mention meat animals are pumped full of antibiotics. I try to eat only organic. The only meat I eat is eggs and fish, should stop them too but not there yet.
Strawberries I'm enivious so wish my freezer was full of strawberries, blueberries, peaches, corn & asparagus, but not there yet either. Of course they all have to be organic. Have to see how my asparagus and berries do this year. No peach trees just one apricot, have to find them somewhere else hopefully not high priced at the stores like I have been getting them.
Kellogg's is also to blame . Did you know they spray before , during and just before harvest of wheat, grains.
My favourite snack is mixed nuts.
Wheat, Soy and another stay away from. I am staying away from manmade foods and sugar not natural like molasses, maple syrup and organic honey, the real stuff. Sugar is as hard as coming off cocaine was told by one of the Symposium speakers, been tested.
Soup still cooking in crockpot, starting to smell good in house. Bring a bowl to have some. Once finished that is it till around Easter.
I have never had so many strawberry's and big ones. I had better go and buy some bird netting so we get to eat them too.
