    Weather Where You Are

    We have had several over 90 degrees with heat indexes of over 100 degrees throughout the summer. I dunno how your garden survives, either, @Rhodie Ranch . Dunno if this would help in the future, BUT, when I start my gardening season I have great ideas, and if I had garden servants they would...

    Duck's New Ragtag garden, Version 2020

    I will be harvesting potatoes when I get home next week. I have saved up Brussels Sprouts seeds to plant in the same bed. I have heard from many sources that Brussels Sprouts started in the Spring are bitter when harvested in the summer, but you cannot FIND the seeds locally after June. I...

    Weather Where You Are

    @Rhodie Ranch , the corn doesn't have to be a total loss. In the 2012 drought, many locals baled them in large bales for cattle. Still, the insurance companies will be paying out. Funny, I hardly grew any corn this year. Just got too busy, or too tired when it was time to plant. This is what...

    IRIS some old some new

    The black iris REALLY multiply. I have waaaayyyy too many of them. My Vet gave me some yellow, so, if I get around to it, I might have some diversity.
