"I had a slug problem a couple of years ago...rain, rain and more rain brought the little buggers to my garden.  I used coffee grounds with great success!  Thanks for more insight in case I have to deal with them again!  Keep gardening!"

Garden Shed/Greenhouse Update

Posted on June 28, 2011 at 9:00pm 1 Comment

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

Tomatoes Update

Posted on June 26, 2010 at 8:00am 0 Comments

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. BBBBBuuuut when I checked on the garden to water it yesterday the wilting stems were looking really good and had started to stand up. So a little patience and a little… Continue

Tomatoes 2010

Posted on June 13, 2010 at 9:00am 4 Comments

I started a new job last September so my time in the garden is limited to the few minutes of sun remaining during the week. Most of my gardening is done on the weekends. But needless to say we were able to get our vegetable garden started. The tomatoes (Big Boy, Early Bird, Roma, and 2 varieties of cherry) are in full swing and nearly 5' tall. Soon I'll have to extend the stakes (last year our tomatoes were about 8' tall). When I took a look at our planting beds I noticed that there were a lot… Continue

More rhubard!

Posted on August 9, 2009 at 2:30pm 0 Comments

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.

Hi Mary! No pictures of this years garden, not as exciting as last year. We are not having a good growing season here in KY, bugs have zapped our beans so were starting new ones and there is this form of blight that is affecting everyone I know the zucchini plants and the corn is slow to go. I believe it's all from the high humidities and high temps and lack of rain.. Thank you for asking and when things do turn around I'll be sure to post some.
