Mason Bee Confession
Apple and Pear Trees Blooming
Blueberry Plant Update
My arugula past it’s prime is a bit bitter really strong already
If you’re not in the Facebook Group I’ve been posting pics about the minifarm and updates etc.
Mike planted 5 rows of potatoes all from our potatoes last year so we didn’t have to buy seed potatoes, he’s planted swiss chard, radishes, carrots, beets, fava seeds from our garden last year too! And there’s garlic and onions growing he planted last fall. He also transplanted some cabbage and broccoli.
The most asked question from last year coming up again!
What do I do for my earth-friendly landscape that is full of dandelions etc?
Well, don’t spray weed and feed that’s for sure, but the solution isn’t an easy overnight success.
Garden Design Ideas
Using the Blank Garden Journal to design some perennial beds to reduce the amount of lawn and add easy low maintenance native plants.
Ideas include building healthy soil – finding free local manure, cutting weeds and hauling them away, spraying molasses to help add nutrients, plant clover seed for nutrients and pollinators, and bagging lawn clippings for compost.
I love my guests! Learning so much!
Frustration with sound problems.
