Greenhouse Renovations

Hey gang!
Well, I think we are all done The sprinklers went in today, and I think now all that has to be done is they need to be adjusted next week. How does everyone else's garden/yard look early in the season?

Hi Eric,

It's going to be 88 today, so I went out at sun up. If it wasn't windy, it would almost be intolerable.

My WEEDS are doing great. Actually, everything looks good, so I've been weeding and pulling the mulch away. I may have jumped the gun, but I planted some lilies that I bought as roots and some are getting ready to bloom. If I have to, I'll cover them up.

I was worried about the hostas, but they're finally peeking through the ground.

Hi yous guys!

Good thread, Eric!

As Gami mentioned, temps are way up here too and without the breeze, it woudn't have been so easy to be doing all the grunt work we had to do!

Today, I put most of my herbs, cukes, and tomatos outside for a brief introduction to the real world. They will be returned to their window sill homes shortly.

In the veggie garden, the onions are doing well, as are the radishes and cabbages. Wish I could report the same for the spinach and scallions! They are virtual no-shows, still! There's something coming up, but they could be weeds. I'm exercising patience....

I didn't get the digital camera --- yet! I'll get some pictures one way or another.

Our dog roamed unsupervised on Saturday and guess what she came back with -- a rack of deer antlers - and I do mean rack - 5 points on that thing! Now, if we could get her to "take care of" Chubby!!!!!

Hi, ah say hi there Liz!

No shows on scallions and spinach, eh? Are you talking about the scallion seeds or the onion sets you started?? if it is scallion seed, I don't know enough about them. If it is the onion sets, they need 75 (average) soil to germinate. If the spinach is outside, move it back in. Probably too hot out for it right now.

Ya'll best be gittin dat digital camera soon. We wanna see dem pitchers yall claim to be aimin'a shoot!

HI

The onion sets are doing great. But, the scallions were from seed and they're not doing a thing. Don't ask me why I planted both....The spinach was from seed, and since I can't see/identify them , it might be hard to bring them inside. I can always try again on the spinach in the fall, right?

Shucky darn, I do want to take some pictures. In the worst kind of way. Not only do I want to have you all identify stuff for me, but I would love for you all to see a picture of the apple orchard in full bloom as the backdrop to a picture of my farm cottage. It's awesome! I should be able to get mah little old hands on wun soooon, ya'll!

Soaked!

Quick funny story about yesterday....

Im standing on a chair yesterday inside the greenhouse trying to secure the pvc to the side of the beam the runs the length of the house. Nick (one of my friends who helped build the greenhouse and do all the renovations) gets the brilliant idea to pick that specific time to see if the system works. On goes the water, and Eric got drenched! I guess you had to have been there Im almost to the end of the roll of film. It will be developed ASAP with pictures on Sierra (or here )

Eric, That is pretty dang funny there

Here's a funny fer you....

Remember when you mentioned putting garlic with water in spray bottle for a cabbage worm deterent? You gave me the right recipe, but before I heard from you with the recipe I whipped up a water and crushed garlic mess in a sterilized Windex spray bottle. Wellll , I forgot to label it right and commenced spraying "Windex" on my mirrors in the bathroom. I couldn't quite figure out what was causing the streaking I laughed and laughed and laughed.

The good news is, we have no cabbage worms in the bathroom!

You sure are a bright one, girl! I can picture you spraying the mirrors and stuff and sniffing around.... "hmmmm.... that dont smell like glass cleaner?" LOL Id say that qualifies as an "embarrassing gardening story". But we all know you have more! Don't hide anything!
