Garden Gleanings, meeting and miscellaneousPosted Saturday, April 25, 2009, at 10:58 AM
Sophie and me tractoring earlier this year.
Next Saturday, Hong Kong Restaurant on Madison Street in beautiful Shelbyville, Tennessee. If you have questions, try me on my e-mail Steve@befordtradingpost.com
No application, no referrals needed, no officers and no DUES. What a deal, plus you can usually leave with seeds, plants, maybe some books but surely new friends and new ideas. I may start cleaning my bookshelf again, so let the door-prizes begin!
Mike, I am going to go out first thing and see if I can snatch a sprouting fig to replace that one from last year. We don't want your garden to miss this growing season.
We need to choose our plants for the VFW this next meeting. Hope the two project leaders can make it, or at least send in your choices. Shortly after that we need to get them and plan a planting day.
I am back early from our auction hopping. Beautiful day, but they just did not hold our interest and we held our money. Soooo, I need to get more plants in the ground. I am not sure when our dreaded cutworm will slow down, so most of my seeds are being started and then transplanted.
I have tried that for corn in the past but was not happy with the results, so I don't think I will start this year either. Corn kicks out a long root quickly and the few times I have tried it, blah. I may sprout them in between wet paper towels though. Space is limited and I have a lit of things I want to grow, so I hate it when 3-4 spaces do not have any sprouts.
We need the sunscreen today. It may seem like it is just spring, but I flirted with sunburn last week, so on with the screen. Besides the smell makes me think of summers at the beach when I was a whipper-snapper, with no cares except what girls I might meet that day. Ooops, better stop reminiscing.
Well, time a-waistin'. Maybe I will chat more during a break.
