"Lark, SO glad you have gotten the organic gardening bug!! (A great bug to have!!! )  Bees are our friends, along with so many other beneficials. Once the balance is restored, the gardens take care of themselves. Food for everyone!"

Bonnie i just stoped in to congraulate you on being featured . Your yard is amazing . i love all your photos . my yard needs more work but that will come along in time . I really like the saphire blue Irisis . i have been thinking of putting some blue irisis on each side of the porch door i have white phlox on each side of the porch and red miniture roses comming up between the phlox and the door . all surrounded by snow on the mountain .but i am not sure if the irisis will look right . so again CONGRATULATIONS . P.S. any suggestions on how to get the asparagus stalks to thicken up . mine is just spindly and it has been there for years . long before i moved in .

Seed Life Chart, how long will they last?

Posted on March 22, 2012 at 4:46am 1 Comment

 

Every year I always have seeds left over after planting.  Depending on the type of seed and its quality, you may be able to store them and use them next year or the year after.

To remain viable, seeds must be kept in a cool, dry place. The important thing is that they not be exposed to moisture. Wetness…

Toads are most active at night, so during the day they need a fairly dark, cool place to hide from the sun and other preditors.

Any crevice can be turned into a toad abode by stacking flat…

Fighting pests in our gardens couldn't be easier with a few easy to grow plants that take care of themselves.  They can be planted covertly among your vegetables, or prominantly displayed within  flowerbeds close by.
