If you build it, Plants will come
A few weeks back I asked Ralph (Caveman) for a garden fence. The fence idea was originally to keep critters out, but evolved to keep littles out too. Gummy Bear can’t help himself in that fresh dirt!
Since the end of March and practically all of April I was locked out of my blog in a seemingly endless password battle, I’m just going to lump April’s garden update in here with May. Be prepared for lots of pictures.
I think with all the brush we’ve been clearing, and all the yard clippings, the best thing to do is build a hugelkultur mound. I’ve never built one, never mind grown in one, so this will be interesting.
New house, new garden
Well, we moved and bought a house. Yay! That also means we have to start fresh with the garden. All the hard work I put into my perennial herbs, and berry patches, left behind. But it’s ok.
I don’t have much going inside. Just a few cucurbit (squash, cucumber, pumpkin) seedlings that I started just in case my other ones bit the dust. I do however, have quite a few random odds and ends leftover outside on the greenhouse shelves. I’m contemplating selling them for cheap, if anyone local is interested.
