Rain Rain Rain

Posted on May 24, 2009 at 4:31pm 0 Comments

Well had 5 days of sunshine and it is now raining again with rain in the forecast for the next 5 days. This has been the worst month of may for gardening. If I could just get it to stop raining long enough to get some mulch out. I do have a new batch of compost brewing in the composter. The vegetable garden has had way to much water and not near enough sunshine. Pumkins are growing good though. Have picked a small amount of squash out of the garden. Tomatoes, eggplants, perrpers, all have good… Continue

Summer around the corner

Sitting here waiting on the rain to end. See sunshine in the forecast in a couple more days. Then it will be a rush to get everything I wanted planted in the ground before it gets to hot to be planting. Then I will need to get all those little shrubs I propagated up out of the propagation beds and into pots. And then time to start propagating more.haha People really don't know what they are missing if they don't garden. Other than having good backs, their mind is just not as clear as ours...haha

Joann, so glad you're enjoying the garden tours. Pruned my pear trees yesterday and many of the Ilex in the Kitchen Garden (Pond area). Lovely day it was yesterday.

Joann, I've use a 70-300mm Canon Is lens, 50-250 Canon IS lens and a 150-500mm Sigma lens.They all take good pictures. I think the 50-250 is a little quicker and a little sharper on AF.But the Sigma gives a little softer picture on my Camera. This was taken with the Sigma hand held, ISO 200

I would suggest a really good soak once a week. Other than that you should be fine. they may just need to get a bit bigger. your pot size should be fine.

Joann, ok so your right at about bloom size hun the next thing you might want to consider is your pot size. Is it throwing off runners yet?? mine has produced sooo many. I started out with one lonely little bird and now it's a veritable forest in there, lol!!! We will get this figured out! Not to worry!

Joann: Personally, I prefer Rock Island over Cedars of Lebanon. If you want to see a pretty water fall, then Fall Creek Falls is a good park. I can't think of any parks in Middle Tn that you can even access a view of the falls with a boat. All of the ons we have done you had to hike a bit to see them. Have you checked out the Tennessee State Parks website?

Of course, the weather will pretty much the same as in AR - hot ;o)

Joann! Lol sorry about that! honestly you don't have to do much they just have to be a certain size I think. how big are your birds? if they are in a pot i think the best thing would actually be to put them in the ground and they will shoot up and bloom for you. mine bloomed the second year I had them. If you really want to keep them potted put them in THE BIGGEST pot you can!! most tropicals will stay small in pots. Unfortunately for birds they do need to be some what big, in my experience. Lots of water. I have NEVER fertilized mine ever and we have had it for going on 9 years. I just put another in the back yard and it is about ooooooh 5 or so feet tall. not blooming yet. I would say they need to be at least 8ish feet? there may be a dwarf variety that will bloom smaller, but I think yours sounds like it isn't that tall?

I used to have fish, but I use muratic acid to keep the algae down, and no matter how careful I was with measuring, a couple times I killed my fish, so I just quite having them. Any other ideas to keep the algae down?

Hey Joann if you could tell me which plants they are I might be able to help you. Do you have a picture of them?? how much sun are they getting? Are they tropicals? I am sure it is a n easy fix I just need to know what kind and sun exposure and if you fertilize at all.

Most garden centers that carry organics either have it or can get it for you. If not try Garden Choice Organics online. I got so many questions on my comments about cornmeal I've posted a blog on the subject too.
