Oh, dear...it's spring...and I'm back...
...and I'm springing for plants AGAIN! Gotta be an addiction.
Been some time since I've been here to post--good to see some familiar faces, but sad to miss some others. :(
Today I splurged--(rolling eyes)--two different kinds of sages, yarrow seeds, squash (hey, I have to eat too!), alpine strawberry, red buckwheat and giant St. Catherine's Weed (buckwheat; Eriogonum). Um. I know there's something else but for the life of me, I can't think of what it was.
I started a new garden this year--it's a bit higher than halfway up my 5' chain link fence to keep the edibles away from the chickens and slugs and snails and vice-versa. Sure hope it works, I'm not working so food production is going to have to team up with the B-flies and like it! Every third container is going to be flowers; the rest are to be tomatoes, squash, strawberries (anyone want to recommend an everbearing variety?), beans, peas, etc.
So we'll see!
Right now though I have to get my ground level stuff out of hock with the foxtails. The ladybugs love the grasses but my wallet hates the vet bills!
Anyway, good to be back, and see you folks around!
