As of the first week of June 2011 our garden shed/greenhouse (see shed/greenhouse album) we started May 2009 is finally done. We hired a fantastic handyman to finished the sheathing and siding. We recycled a 2 step staircase we removed from our old deck (yes we've been busy) and attached it to the main door and is now awaiting paint. There is a bit a character in the old staircase and looks great with the 112 year old half-circle window that we added just under… Continue

I pruned back my tomato plants a couple of weeks ago resulting in a lot of stems for transplanting. Some of the transplanted stems had blossoms. For about a week to 1 1/2 weeks the stems with the blossoms were really droopy and wilted. I thought that they weren't going to transplant well and had even contemplated pulling them.

The very end of July found me rooting around the rhubarb patch for the third time. This last harvest yielded over 6 cups of chopped rhubarb. Since we found strawberries on sale guess what we did??? With the help of my sister, Nikki, we made another 2 dozen half-pints of jam. I was surprised to get 3 harvests out of the rhubarb since it is a cool weather crop but I guess it likes where it is.
I do have one question......is there a way to divide rhubarb? Let me know.
