Great garden meeting. Shared plants, seeds, cuttings and of course information.

  • As a reminder to me, I need to bring in some walking onion sets next meeting. cherokee2 was good enough to share them and we have to do the same. They just were not ready yet, but are now.

  • Cherokee2, ...hope to see you at the next meeting so I can get some "green info" about the walking onions that you so generously shared with us. What are the little white bumps with the green squiglies on top?

  • "little white bumps with the green squiglies on top" cherokee2, you gotta answer this one.

    I hope everyone had a good holiday weekend. I was ready for it to end so I could get a break. It's gettin' hot out there now. Especially when there are no clouds.

    I'm keeping ahead of the weeds so far and seeing some strong progress but this heat was pulling moisture quickly so I put a few loads of wood chips around the plants to try to cool the soil.

    This is year old stuff so it should be adding to the soil as well as shading. I sure wish the trimming crews would not throw in such large chucks of trees but I would much rather have the chips than complain and get nothing.

    I am about to plant some late red potatoes. Not by plan, but I was given a bag of sprouted potatoes and could not resist. Maybe I can get a bunch of "new potatoes" in a few months.

    I have something growing in a starter pot that is supposed to be some type of tomato. All I can be sure of is that it is NOT a tomato. Hmmm.
