Yes it's true, Fedco Trees and Fedco Organic Growers Supply I really like them both. I haven't tried Fedco seeds or the other Fedco divisions (yet) though.Usually @Mini Horses is warmer than I am here further west, and my plants are just sitting there .... Tomaotes don't look like they have grown at all... nights too cool, and it has been dry here. We got over an inch of rain a week ago... but were 3 inches short for the month...
Got weed eated and mowed all around the garden and got the electric netting that I bought last year up this evening..... not electrified yet... but it is up... hope it will deter the deer for a few days until I finish it.... Green beans (actually purple ones) are just coming through and those S.O.B's mowed them off last year...haven't planted the "green beans" yet but did put in a couple short rows of wax (yellow) beans......they don't seem to bother the potaotes and I have alot planted this year... hope to sell some... have 5 different fingerlings and 15 varieties of "regular" sized potatoes... got 2 lbs of each to do some "trials" on what grows good and what I like for taste... and figure they would make interesting "sample baskets" to sell at the farmers market this fall.... plus I knew the deer wouldn't bother them much...Made a plat so I know which is which when it comes time to harvest and do taste tests... I used to always plant the "Russian Banana" fingerlings when I could get them for years and years... and got some other kinds this year.
I know that @CrealCritter likes Fedco seed co. for his grafting stuff... they also carry a big variety of seed potatoes... I splurged this year on different kinds and will see what I really like and next year try some other ones that they were out of this year; as well as more of the ones I really like.
Something nibbled on several of the pepper plants and I sprayed them with a deterrent... it is basically blood meal... and they haven't been touched since... hoping that will stop most of it and it is a good "fertilizer" in as much as it adds a little nitrogen into the soil too...
Temps are supposed to get down into the upper 40's tonight.... WHAT... I hope they are wrong.
Me too. Doc said that it doesn't look like cancer but wants to do the biopsy to be fully sure. I told him the Jesus has healed me from any horrible disease. No calls today. I will call tomorrow by 11am if I don't get a call in the morning. Love you all!Hope that works out ok!
Not much. Still tired from yesterday. Went early to finish paying for the firetruck ac work and not happy with it.
Got some soil and feed. Stared at the chicks for a bit and then grabbed a bag of Kalmbach and a small bag of chick starter for the 5 peeps that Lupita is sitting on. Came home downloaded and the sun and heat prevented me from doing much. I did stole the eggs and checked them and saw no life in them. Nothing moved. Just a dark blob inside. So tomorrow morning will go to get 5 chicks at FFH and sneak them at night and pray she will take them. Feel so sorry for her. She has been sitting for over 26 days. First on fake eggs and once I saw she meant business, and gave her 6 eggs.
I did some weeding out and noticed that my tomatoes and peppers are not holding on. I need to put more soil on them or something.
I water them in the evenings and it has been kind of hard. I need something better than a hose.
At what time is best to water the garden for you? Should I get a sprinkler?
