Margaret Beers Oliver's Blog – July 2009 Archive (5)

last night

My little dashunds cornered a baby skunk. It has been an awful stinky day of baking soad and vinegar baths.

Rainbow Chard

Is ready to go out into the real garden now I think. Fennel also. The weather has everything all messed up. Still what can you do but start on the season extenders as I think I may need them early this year.

I haven't posted in a couple of weeks because life got busy

However I have had some really good news ... the lab said benign. Okay enough of that. I put up seven quarts of cordialed cherries for the Christmas season. (winter here) I am happy to say that the garden is finally thinking about fruiting. Some of the tomatoes have little 'matters growing on them. Salad is starting to be not so happy, however I am going to try to put some in my shade garden to see if that will work against the summer heat.

Little bit of surgery is all finished.

I am going to spend the rest of the day with my feet up.
The only thing I have done in the garden today was some hand watering. It should not take long for the rain to fall now because I watered the potted plants. LOL

Greetings Earth Dwellers

The hen and chicks (house leeks?) are growing crazy big this season. Here is a shady spot that I am trying to encourage the ground covers in because the dogs seem to leave them alone.
