    I need a hoop house!

    I belong to a FB site called High tunnels for beginners. They are far from beginners, have big operations, but are still good for information. I bought my hoop house used for a song. I have had it for about 10 years. I have had to replace the covering only once. It is opaque woven poly. Keep you...

    I need a hoop house!

    Nothing that price will be of any use. I think those are protective structures for a lawn mower or some such thing. Not a hoop house for growing.

    Pea First 13 from Burpee. This is the first time I have tried them and I am so impressed. It is claimed to be the first pea to give you up to 13 peas in a pod. One drawback is they are very short. We usually go for the 5-6 foot tall vines. No bending to pick. However these short vines are loaded...

    Some of my new daylilies for you to see

    A new daylily cultivar hybridized here at TomCat Daylily Farm. A delicate cream color with a purple and yellow edges ruffle. A very early bloom here in Massachusetts. It started to bloom on June 15th. The first week in July is usually when we start. I hope you enjoy. LOVE AT FIRST KISS.

    They definitely are not as prolific when I put out a big plant. Just enough for a salad and a sandwich. I will probably eat it today. I will report back with my critique.

    For you Southerners this is no big deal. A red tomato on June 18. Unheard of here in Massachusetts except with extra effort. I started a few plants indoors in January. I have been eating cherry tomatoes for some time. But I put this Bid Dena outdoors when it was large and had blossoms and a few...

    Yellowing leaves on Roses Lillys & Birch tree

    Daylilies are the least needy of most any plant. Miracle grow will give your plants a short term boost. You have not addressed the conditions of your poor soil. And is that stone mulch? I cannot imagine that would be good for anything except a driveway. You need to add compost and other soil...

    Am I insane to buy this land?!

    The last thing I would worry about is an occasional fisherman walking through my stream. If it looks untouched it probably is. I live on a river. The land on the riverbank is mine with a road between the house and river. The old deed says we own to the middle of the river. We have photographers...
