The last half of the day was completely messed up by a very light, misting rain...blech! Also, my football team got the crap beat out of them...Boo!!!!!!
Anyway, I wanted to show some new pictures of things around here, and comment on them as I go..
Take a look at these saved plastic bottles in the old municipal garbage can...hehe...I have alot! These will be used to sell large tomato seedlings in next spring. I'm ready....
Photo below - Oh! I wanted to show you one of my japanese maple trees that I planted out into the yard a few days ago. This is one of the seedlings I scooped up from underneath a large tree last March. I sure hope it makes it through the winter. I have another one planted about 20 feet from this one. BTW, this is what my native soil looks like. Yah...total crap!
Photo below - My first planting of onions is doing good, and there are 54 total in the recently vacated sweet potato containers. They will be allowed to go all the way until May 1st.
Photo below - Here's my broccoli that is being grown in the swc's made from cat litter buckets for Auburn University. Before my article on growing in this particular container can be turned into a publication, they must be tried and true - with documentation and pictures along the way. If needed, I can easily cover them with some type of makeshift hoop cover, as they will probably take a long time to reach maturity.
Speaking of hoop covers, I have changed my plans again...Dangit. I can't help it...I come up with a plan, then walk around out there just playing with Jude - looking at my big box the whole time. A thought comes to mind on how to improve the original plan - then a new one takes its place. OCPD is really something to deal with - let me tell ya....
Take care, and happy gardening!
