Kathy Fathers commented on Margaret Beers Oliver's group straw bale gardens
"Make a hole in the straw and pot in a handful or two of compost and plant in that.  I used this method to start my garden in 1987.  It works a treat."

"Hi guys, I just got around to have enough interest to try out straw bale gardening 2 weeks before Spring. I realized that you have to let the straw bale sort of mature over winter before you can plant into it. Is there a way to kick start the…"

Big tree branch

A big tree branch from the Elm by the driveway has broken off and fallen. Seems to have some kind of fungus or rot and will have to be removed. The top pciture shows the break and some of the fungus looking rot. The second shows where it barely missed the bird bath.…

Heres to the summer that didn't happen.

Strange as it sounds the garden looks great, but the damp cool weather we had seemed to stop production.
California has big fires and the smoke is keeping me inside most of the day. I will have a hot cuppa in the shade thank you.
I hope everyone is going to have great success in the garden this season.

lovely day...

went to the experimental gardens at the Colorado College. I am a bit sunburned but happy! The leaves are turning red already because the weather has been so odd. Still the garden isn't the complete failure that I thought it might become. The Rainbow Chard is doing nothing though. Neither are the Canterbury Bells or the Fennel.

hi Margaret, so many people have been hit and the quakes just keep coming, you never think it will happen in your backyard. Thank you for your comment. I see you have a couple of dashunds, aren't they wonderful, I had one when the kids were little, we lost her about 5 years ago, she lived 13 years. one day I will get other. they are very rarely seen which is such a pity. My girl had puppies and was such a good mother to them and to my kids.

Planting fruit trees now would be a good time for you and some nut trees too, wouldn't it? any damage fruit can be feed to any live stock (eg:chickens horses pigs) should you want then that is! I long to get in my garden but I still have paperwork im still doing to close our bissness off, then I will be out there as much as possible! I love having comfery in the garden but at the moment I have dandilions 3 feet high so I need to get that horrible paper work done. Next time I write I WILL be finishes, Yay.

Hello Margaret and "Thank You" so much for your friendship!

It sounds like a dream property, Im after that next year....hope i can get it. I have planted out my glass house with Tomatoes and stawberrys. Hung baskets off stwaberrys and Palagoniums. Lots of pots of Dalias so they dont die while the ground is still cold and as many seeded trays as I can fit. Its a new glass house my frist whole season so Im learning. Im still building more shelves on the work bench I put in so I will have more room....the big problem I have now is I dont have much space to grow the seeds when sprouted. Im also going Vegan of a few months to trial and I need as many veges as possible for a large family of Five adult size eaters. Any great ides???

Every time I go past the computer I check for messages. And voila! It stops me doing the ironing...wonderful. Today is a blank day, overcast and grey threatening to rain, the washing didn't dry outside and now I'm (not) ironing.
I looked for your area on Google recently and they've photo'd in different seasons!
It looks very isolated. Is your nearest little town Minihaha?

By 'put up' I guess you mean preserved in some way. Did you get the mock orange to root? How did you do it? Stick a bit in? Air layer it? Half break a branch and hold it to the ground with a brick. I still remember a tree in my childjood. I loved the smell and cried when my father cut it down. I have one that struggles under bigger trees, but the smell is still divine.

You poor dear! It seems you have had a lot of worry. Isn't it wonderful that a garden is so good for the sou? Take care.
