THE GARDEN.
Took the last shot in the camera this morning in the rain.. a soggy mess indeed. Oh boy, can't wait to finish preparing the soil... lots of tenacious bermuda to hack out. G's lush rows are in the background... with winter crops of broccoli and cauliflower actually thriving... My postage stamp- sized plot is in front... and has a long way to go :-) In case you can't smell, it, there is a fresh layer of chicken "stuff" or manure as T likes to call it... on the top. Great stuff. Jeanne - we like to eat what we grow too... nothing like it, is there? Posted by Picasa

We usually have kale that survives the winter and can be harvested whenever, but this year I planted a low variety by mistake and I can hardly find it under the snow. Our broccoli is too limp to be appetizing, and it doesn't grow at all after november. But I've been doing alfalfa sprouts since the beginning of January- the new 2 quart batch is ready when the old one is consumed.
Do you have any fruit trees?

tsduff said...

Trée, we are growing a whole lot of dirt and earthworms at the moment... G has a head start with the broccoli and cauliflower, oh, and garlic. Me? Well, the planting has not commenced... need to load on some more CS first :-) I've got plenty in the chicken coop :-)

Awe Mr Volcanic Soul A.K.A. Bear, your words make me thrill :-) You are the one with the magic hands (talking about growing green things you understand)... You inspire me to greater things in the garden :-D

tsduff said...

Autumn, oh, it's a heap of potential all right... potential weed takeover, potential and probably back aches, blisters, etc! Lots of work there. But lots of edible potential as well :-D Ah, the joys of gardening pull me forward.

tsduff said...

Trace, GOOD MORNING!!!!

Tom, sshhhhhh!


just a corn popper - oh you sexy thing...who you saying's dead? Yahoo! pop pop

Jeanne, yum! I haven't had alfalfa in ages.

I had several orange and lemon trees but they froze several years back. Lost my giant apricot tree also, to disease. Presently I have one plum tree, but the deer jumped up on it last summer and cracked an entire half of it :-( It is blooming in the picture.
Must be hard to garden in the snow.

Jeanne said...

That's right. Rub it in.
