Yes, Hi Arejay. I always love the photos you guys use for the top thread slot. So pretty. I just got another load of lumber so we can finish the greenhouse frame next week. Got to get a new door and window this year, the old ones are just too old to geep going. But hopefully will get finished this coming week, so it will be ready when the plants need it.
Update on my baby brug. One more picture of the tiny puya.
The two pots together are Puya and the first picture up there is my baby brug. In the first picture at the top right side is my little princess and her earring tree baby and on the left is my emerald Jade vine and right between the jade and princess tree is a pink metalic vine. Then the brug in the front of it all.
Happy Sunday! I hate to pop in and out, but I'm trying to finish up my psychology classwork before the deadline tonight. I'm having trouble focusing, though, because I keep thinking about getting my greenhouse ready for fall/winter, what might be sprouting seeds in the yard, running over to the place I snagged those hib seeds from yesterday and taking a picture of the plant so I have it for ID purposes, and doing basically anything else BUT writing an essay about Freud and dream analysis. LOL
LOL -- Mekos ... I left off that distraction as well ... the race. What's worse for me is that my guy is leading again now! (Jimmie Johnson). Hmm, now here's an idea. If JJ wins his 4th championship in a row this year, I might have to have a celebratory 48-themed garden bed with blue & yellow flowers.
Great, just what I needed ... another distraction ... now I'm thinking of what flowers would be good to create a JJ bed. LOL
Hey gotta question. Does anyone have any seed to any of the new echiniceas?
Coral Reef,Sundown,Elton Knight,Sunrise,Twilight,Flame Thrower,or Pink Poodle. I would really like some if you all have any to trade or SAE,postage or what ever.
Jlj, you go girl! I knew you were my kind of gal. He's one of my picks too. I also like Kasey Kahne and Carl Edwards.
Flower, I'll look through my seeds but not sure. Let you know tomorrow. I'm going to pack you another box next week anyway. Got a few things I want to send you. Seems like there may have been a pack of echiniceas of something but don't remember what color or anything about it. Got it in a trade, but never paid much attention to it. I'll drag out the basket and look in the morning and d-mail you if I do have it, with the color name.
Yes Seray, I needed more room this year and shelves for all the seedlings pots and hanging pots. I have 3 like- bakers rack kind of shelves-and need a table going all the way down one side for some pots, then the tall ones will go on the ground on the other side. I want it better organized this time. I have 2 small ponds full of water plants that are tropical to go in as well. Then in the spring I want to start seedling trays of tomatoes and peppers and such for the garden along with cuttings of plants for sale or trade so need space. I want to be ready, this year I got a late start collecting stuff.
Mekos, I may just hit you up for some of those water plants.. I have 2 ponds ya know >:-) he he Not for a while though.. too many lasagna beds .. I close my eyes I see them. I go to sleep I see them. I leave, come home, same thing.. lol
Maybe you should adjust your essay to work a little better with your focus. Maybe we are a dream. Now what does that say about your seed addiction in Sigmund's opinion? Make sure you make our characters as rich as our personalities...
You're way ahead of me. I'm organizing all the stuff that needs to come in and trying to root cuttings on the vines just in case. Trying to do some air layering before I trim everything back. I have the table to work on but not enough shelves. I have the benches but not the lights. (sigh) :)
I wish I had that much liberty with the assignment; unfortunately, the "dream" is supplied to me to analyze. I'm just a little miffed because I had several questions about this week's assignment, and emailed my instructor Thursday morning, then again today. I still haven't had an answer from him. It's an online class, and his syllabus claims that he answers all emails within 12 hours.
Maybe I should turn in my dream analysis to read, "Were you dreaming when you said you reply to emails within 12 hours?" LOL
hi all watching football just thought i would check in
hey jlj, i had a subdivision where the contractors trailer was moving, i was working for a plumbing company and knew the contractors well, i asked if i could have the plants, i filled my company truck the size of a med. uhaul, with alll types and that is howi started my garden, i had over 100 plants stuffed in there, was kinda hard to work around that. lol
I have yellow cannas already ... but don't have anything blue that I know of. I have a large, slightly-sloped, mulched hill in front of my house.
How "red" would I be if I just plant a carpet of yellow flowers with blue flowers making the "48" among them for all my neighbors to see? My husband would probably file for divorce (he's a Mark Martin fan). LOL
Yellow and blue would be a pretty color-themed garden though. I'll have to really give this some thought, either way.
Whatever it is, if I put it in the front yard, it will need to be a shade flower/plant. That area is on the north side of my house, and with all the trees (12 on a 1/4 acre), it doesn't get but maybe 25% sunlight down there.
Easy as cake girl. You would do good and they bloom until frost most of the time. Hey you might luck up and find plants if you go look at the lowes and home depot, k-mart or wal-mart for reduced plants. I have even seen pansy blooms with snow on the ground around here. And they come in so many neat colors. You could get blue blooms with yellow eyes.
YOU got the FEVER!!!!! I'll be looking around here for some plants and you be looking for seeds. Advertise on the seed trading forum for some seeds of the blue pansy, and If I find some, I'll get you some plants to get you started. Go over to the thread where it says list your most wanted seeds here and put in what you want, maybe someone will have some and send you some.
HI Everyone. Lovely mascot Belle spoil him every chance you get for us.
I would show you all my babies but the darn mutts won't be still long enough to take their picture. Today they decided I needed help digging up the shade bed. I was doing fine all by myself when all of a sudden I felt dirt hitting me full blast from two active little diggers off to the side of me. I like one more corner having everything dug up so I can change the plants in there.
Robin I'm not doing the Goth you know I don't like black plants though one of my friends wants me to plant black columbines just so she can see if she likes them or not. I told her to plant them herself.
Hey guys.. How is e1? Great I hope. Well I got a lot accomplished outside today. I finally mulched my crepe myrtles, the new ones anyway and the Magnolia tree. I dug all the new Red Spider Lilies and replanted them in the Goth Garden. I had enough to go all the way around the tree twice. I also planted the Red,Black & Blue Petunias in the Goth Garden as well as the Blue Salvia (both from Mekos) I cannot even believe how wonderful the soil is already in that lasagna bed! I am so amazed. That's what prompted me to go ahead and plant the live plants in there. I will get a pic for you guys tomorrow. I have become a stickler on marking everything I plant because I have so many different things, I know by spring I will forget what's where and who I got them from. Then I broke the handle on my stupid wheelbarrow and then when trying to dig maiden grass, broke my darn shovel. LOL.. thats okay cause I still kicked butt.. I mowed the entire lawn.. took like 3 hours. My intent was to do just a little area and rake it up for the lasagna bed, but got started and couldn't quit. My DH had made a nice dinner when I came in.. Linguine with shrimp and mixed veggies with alfredo sauce. We do things backwards sometimes, lol.. Ok, done writing my book now, GN e1 CU in the AM!
I will Lolly. I think you need something to pop out that black or purple foliage. Otherwise you won't see it as well. I have a lot of dark foliage and it doesn't always stand out unless it's accented in some way. I have three chocolate mimosas in this bed and unless you look you can't really see them. Once everything got big they had a nice background of green to pop them out. Silver or red would have been better.
Yep, I didn't get it either! LOL! Tubby, is it cold at your house this morning? We are hovering at about 25 degrees, and have been for about 2 hours at least. That's when I got up and checked, and it's not warming up any yet. But the sun's not out yet either. Bummer, I didn't bring any plants in last night. Hope they didn't freeze too bad!
Morning, Flower! A snowball bush is actually a viburnum, and blooms in the spring. Hydrangeas bloom in later summer, August , Sept. That's about all I know about the differences! LOL! I'm sure someone else can give you more info, tho.
In the Gothic gardens I read about , there was also listed a Moonlight garden. It was pretty too.
Could put them side by side or within close enough distance to Show off the differences of each garden.
Also added gazing balls and Gargoyles.
good morning all ... was about 80 here this am but cooler weather is on the way... wind blowing about 15 mph and already about 70 out supposed to be down to 58 tonight will be a good night for football game... beats the heat and fighting mosquitos for sure...
Flower, if you are looking at the difference in the bush it self- the leaves should be different. You should be able to look at the leaf and see the difference. Can you take a picture of the leaf or plants?
Yea, Tubby, I guess we're not as bright as the kids, it looked the same to me.
Seray, your gardens are georgeous.
Did you guys go look at the brug blooming on the brug forum- thread from greenthumbtn? Man that is pretty.
It so windy here right now, it blew down my red castor bean bush/tree. I went ahead and pulled it out of the bed. I'll get the seed pods off it, but like the dark purple/black one better anyway. Don't know why it blew down one and not the other ones.
I gathered some more seeds today since the sun is out and drying some more of them.
Well, I'm off for a while, back later.
Back to the rat race I call work - lol. Mekos - glad to hear the babies are doing better.
I had a busy busy weekend with church and football and basketball and laundry and this new business my DH and I are working on and wishing for cooler weather . . .
It's supposed to be near 108° today - argh! I'm soooooo over this heat! It's kinda scaring me that all my peeps are getting their gardens ready to shut down for winter and us here in the blasted furnace called the Southwest are barely thinking about planting and enjoying our gardens through the winter . . .
wow seray your garden pic is beautiful... I can grow plants but making groupings that look great together is just not my thing YET...I keep looking and now that I have more seeds, ill have more plants to work with ...maybe that will help lol
I had read a review in a gardening magazine about this book so I found it on eBay. It's called Perennial Combinations by C Colston Burrell. It retailed for 29.95, I paid 3.00 for it. It is a wonderful aid in helping put plants combos together. I need all the help I can get in that department!
Yeah KT2 Spill. What are you two doing down there? AM I going to have come down there and see for myself?Tell us more Lolly...what do we group together? I thought is was maybe cat mint or something of that nature. I have a couple I need some Id for .Ill show you in a bit.
mekos - I think flower is right on the ID on your plant. My mom has one and the name flower gave rings a bell.
On the new business - we're representatives for a company that sells telecommunications services. Something we decided to do on the side. I really like it so far!! You own your own business and work at your own pace selling services we all use every day like wireless, internet, phone service, home security, satellite TV, etc. It was a small initial investment which in this economy is a good thing - lol.
I don't think we are allowed to promote our businesses and such on the forums per Dave's policy, but I'd be happy to send the link to my website to anyone who wants to check it out. Just send me a d-mail!
I figured if I added anything else to my already full plate, it had to be something that wouldn't take away any more gardening time. Now that fall is approaching I can really get into high gear and sow all the wonderful seeds I've received from all you peeps! I want a show-stopper yard for spring, at least in my dreams - lol. I figure I'll plant plant plant and then deal with moving stuff later on if I have to!
Tubby - let me know if you're ready for the "Blackie" cuttings and I'll root some to mail out to you on Monday. I'll send some rooted and unrooted since they root pretty easily in plain 'ol water. Let 'em get a few roots (takes just a few days) then pot them up. Easy as pie...
Woo Hoo!!! Kelly, we are in business together!!! Yippee! Remember me telling you I had a partner in Scottsdale? Have you met them yet? Have you met Kathi? You are going to love this business!!!! Tell Kathi I said Hi!
Edited to add:
Do you have your video phone yet? DM me for my number and we can talk for free! Yippee! Still planning on being there in Oct with my sis, so we can definately get together! Yippee!
Just a quick pop in to say HI and see what everyone is up to. Heard from KT3 she said she will be back with us here soon as she catches up on things.
Going out to finish diging up the shady bed.
Yea, I wondered if Lucy got her. You know my mail lady said she read a name on a package that came through the post office and it had a name on it that I send seeds to sometimes. I think she said it was going to Maine?!? Anyone know anything about a package headed that way? I wonder what it could be? Huummmmm????
mekos - the black pansy did indeed sprout.. one has tiny black flowers, the other.. well.. not so black..ROTFL.. can you say 'Hot Pink'??? must be a hybrid and its sprouting int he likeness of one of the parents. I kept it in the goth bed... one tiny pink flower in all that darkness..ROTFL
Great Cue, they may have got a different seed in by mistake when packaging. Glad they sprouted and can't believe they are blooming already. Wow. Did your african poinsettia do ok? Mine is turning red on top. Was until it rained so much but I'm sure with the sun shining again, it will continue to turn. It's getting pretty. I couldn't believe the wind took out my red castor bean today. Took it up by the roots. I decided not to replant since it is so big and probably wouldn't stay planted. And my hybiscus seedlings are doing great. They are growing by leaps and bounds. How is your black dragon doing? Did it do ok? You are going to have to take pictures, Cue.
hey mekos i got a package on mistake, that was heading to maine too why it came to me i sent it on its way went to litchfield or something like that was a nice size package if i say so my self some lucky duck
i had it but i sent it on its way why the post office would go south instead of north i guess to cold for them to deliver up north so south it came, i guess i should of checked it out first and make sure it is okay
Me and Cue have them. So cool. Was black and green verigated, then it started turning red in the top. Man if I had known you wanted one arejay, I would have told the mail lady to add it with that package she saw for maine. Surely someone would have sent it on to you.
Ok you guys ...are you pulling my leg here and getting coco to help? I have seen a Summer Poinsettia but no African Poinsettia. Come clean...I see a thread with mekos talking about an African Poinsettia but it turned out to be African something else...
KT2 and I are ROTFLOL! Just found out we are business partners! Too funny! Haven't checked out her website, but should to see if it's much different than mine. LOL! I'm planning on going to visit her in October. Anybody want to go with?
OH, an African poinsettia IS a poinsettia. It's also common name is african milk bush, but is african poinsettia. Here is a picture, but not good because it is dark and had to shine a light so the colors are not good.
I also have the summer poinsettias in several colors like the dark burgandy, and yellow /red stripe and yellow , then I have one called a wild yard poinsettia. Green and red with yellow dots in the top with the seeds. Real cute.
I knew those pictures I get on the computer looked familiar. It's Arejay. Look there she is.
Well, Blondie, there must be 2 packages out there going to maine, the one my mail lady saw was big. Gotta have a big plant inside. Man wish I had got her to show me. Sorry Arejay, it wasn't from me. I sent you some seeds last week, but not a box, just an envelope. I bet it was something pretty.
well i hope she checked guess we better tell loca to check it out for us i wanna know know
got to be nice if it is big. how big was yours mekos, mine the size of a old time record, or magazine i think
The doctor, after an examination, sighed and said, 'I've got some bad news. You have cancer, and you'd best put your affairs in order.'
The woman was shocked, but managed to compose herself and walk into the waiting room where her daughter had been waiting.
'Well, daughter, we women celebrate when things are good, and we celebrate when things don't go so well. In this case, things aren't well.. I have cancer. So, let's head to the club and have a martini.'
After 3 or 4 martinis, the two were feeling a little less somber. There were some laughs and more martinis. They were eventually approached by some of the woman's old friends, who were curious as to what the two were celebrating.
The woman told her friends they were drinking to her impending end, 'I've been diagnosed with AIDS..' The friends were aghast, gave the woman their condolences and beat a hasty retreat.
After the friends left, the woman's daughter leaned over and whispered, 'Momma, I thought you said you were dying of cancer, and you just told your friends you were dying of AIDS! Why did you do that??'
'Because I don't want any of those witches sleeping with your father after I'm gone.'
And THAT, my friends, is what is called, 'Putting Your Affairs In Order
up to what i had a package, my son gave it to me the other day and it did say maine somewhere, so i sent it on its way, my mail lady said something about arizona and i may of just got things mixed up blonds do that real well
Whaaaaaaaaaatttttttttt are y'all talking about? Packages? Nothing but bills bills bills in my mailbox today! JK - actually junk mail;~(
Maybe Gilda is on the way?!?!? She's in for spectacular weather if it is her. Forecast is for upper 80s on Thursday. Hope she has her bikini! It's been over 100° for weeks - we need a break from this 'ol weather. I feel a sick day coming on - ROTFLOL! Maybe I'll play hookey and work on the garden all day!
sk - October in Phoenix is a bit chilly at night, at least for us desert dwellers. You might think it's summertime!
seray - I have the Jungle Beauty in a pot and it's growing by leaps and bounds! Needs to cool down so I can plant 'er in the ground. Got some daylily seeds from LaLambchop and skimper, so gonna try my hand at growing them from seed so the Jungle Beauty will have some friends!
mekos - one of the three Sapphire Showers took and it's growing. When I send it I'll send some unrooted cuttings for you as well. Now that it's maybe cooling down it should start looking good again - like this . . .
That must have been why it came up this way, my mail lady said sometimes the mail people put stuff on the wrong way trucks sometimes and it has to travel around a while before it can get turned around. I bet that is what happened. I wish I had caught it.
WOOO HOOO Loca, that is great. I can't wait. You be watching for a package with arejays state on it. It seems to be traveling around all over the place. If you find it send it my way or d-mail me and we'll work it out. Haha-winks eye.
She likes friends Loca. Maybe you need some more? I'm gonna be sending SOMEONE a pretty white one called Joan Senior. Someone who sprouts the White Brug!!! She is a diploid like Jungle Beauty which means they could have babies. LOL Shall we dance for your sprout?
It must be that 108 degree temp Loca! It could not have been a more beautiful day today. I just came in and worked outside ALL day. I have homework, have to go to school tomorrow and I hurt, lol.. Trimmed my Stallion and moved my roundpen to a better spot, whew I am so pooped.. But I can't wait to get up and do it all over again tomorrow ;-) Am I crazy for thinking I would rather stay home and work in my yard than go to Paul Mitchell Hair School?? I must be, right?
LOL I like your way of thinking seray.. I reward myself for getting up on time and out of the house on time by getting an Iced coffee on the way. That's the one thing I miss about Calif.. STARBUCKS! there isn't one within 80 miles of where I live. There was one on the way to school but it closed ;-O There is one near my school, but by the time I get there, I have no time to drink it..wah wah wah
Well, no lost packages better show up in this cold land! I'll have to keep it, at least until May when it warms up enough to ship out. Too cold to ship much now. Hate to see pretty things freeze to death! Probably doesn't have it's long johns packed with it. LOL! Or I'll take it to KT2 when I go and leave it with her. She would get it back again. ;-) Maybe it won't ever make it to Maine! LOL
K guys. it's been a long day.. Gonna hit that shower hard in a second..
Not trying to sound cheesy here but I just wanted to tell you all that I am so happy I found you guys and this website.. I have learned so much and have done some wonderful things in my yard because of YOU guys.. Thanks for all your help and insight on my projects. I couldn't have done it without you all ((( Hugggsss)))) I mean it, seriously, Thank you..
I have homework and I have to diagram a creative haircut and perform it on my mannequin at school tomorrow. Wish me luck! Do you wanna see before and after pics?? Night everyone
Yeah, Mechelle - it's the heat - that's it - lol!!
Thanks Lolly! I like it a lot. If I get more cuttings to root I'll send you some. You may not want it until spring since it would have to come in in your zone. It really should be in the ground but I have it in a big 'ol pot and it's huge!
I think we'll keep it in AZ. Winters are enjoyable here. Come summer though it will be ready to head for Maine, believe me!
NO STARBUCKS?!?! OMG - how do you survive? Sometimes Costco has a drink mix, they have mocha and java chip, Big Train brand I think - we make frappacuinos with it and it's better than Starbucks, and a whole lot cheaper . . .
The Beauty of Mathematics and the Love of God! This is TOO cool!
Just the math part is good enough, the end is even better.
I bet you will NOT be able to read it without sending it on to at least one other person!
I received this e-mail and thought it was pretty cool! Keep scrolling it gets better. J

Now, take a look at this...
From a strictly mathematical viewpoint:
What Equals 100%?
What does it mean to give MORE than 100%?
Ever wonder about those people who say they
are giving more than 100%?
We have all been in situations where someone wants you to
GIVE OVER 100%...
How about ACHIEVING 101%?
What equals 100% in life?
Here's a little mathematical formula that might help
answer these questions:

Went by one of our other offices yesterday (that frequently changes out landscaping, as I mentioned in the last thread), and low and behold, the landscapers were there, replacing beautiful yellow hibiscus with mums and pansies. So I scored 7 new yellow hibs yesterday for free!
They're a little weak/wilted from being displaced for a few hours, but I got them home and planted and watered as quickly as I could to help save them. If they make it okay, perhaps I should use these to frame a bed of blue flowers for my Jimmie Johnson bed, LOL.
So GM everyone. Hope you all have a beautiful day.
Mechelle knew you went to school but didn't know for what now I know. LOL I went to beauty college also. I am a licensed cosmotologist myself. How many hours do you have to have there in TN? I had to have 1500 hours here in In.
Yeah I know tubby , that's why I am not doing it anymore either. Had to have surgery done on one shoulder 2 times because of it and the last time it was done Dr said if it happened again there was no fixing it, so I just got out of it. Miss it in a way but I still cut the family and friends hair on occassion. Thats not like standing there with the ole arms up all day cutting and perming and all that good stuff .
Morning e1! Well, the dear weatherman is forecasting snow for tonight and tomorrow night. Who wants it? I'm sure somebody here said they wanted some, and I sure dont! LOL! Guess that means that the flowers are done for the year, if he's right! We had a hard freeze night before last, and that did most of them in anyway. Gotta find room for all the potted stuff inside now. Sure wish I had a greenhouse! LOL
Goodmorning everyone...It actually got down to 50 here night , usually we dont see cool weather till end of October..Hope that doesnt mean we are in for a cold winter...LOL It seldom gets below freezing, so to me thats cold...Its actually only snowed here a couple of times that I can remember in my 45 years..It is something I would like to experience, but dont think I would look forward to having to shovel it out of the drive... Guess I will just let you keep it SKellogg...Thanks for the offer tho... Well I have to get some flowers dug to send out in package today...Need to work on another flower bed I have going on...Hope you all have a great day...Trish
Rather chilly here this morning too. Only suppose to get up to 66 today. Dug out my sweat pants, will probably get hot cause got to go out and plant some Mums and a few other things too.
hey, any of you that have a pond be sure and save some seed if you can. I'll have mine this next spring and would really like to have some lotus and water lilies seed. I would appreciate it. There are some on ebay but they would come from Thailand and they want 7.00 shipping on them and the seed is only .99 cents, go figure?
That would be it LOCA. Grab that package! SSShhhhh, our secret.
I WANT SNOW !!!!!! Send some my way. I love the snow.
Flower, I got bunches of water plants to share with you and some Lotus seeds in pink.
Beautiful Yellow Hibiscus up there. Hope they are the hardy kind so they will come back each year. Great find.
Going to save some seeds, I hope.
HI Everyone. Popping in while I wait for the turkey jerky to finish drying. Dogs are eagerly waiting for it LOL though it's for hubby not them.
That's strange about that package I think I saw it going through KY and I could have sworn it had Maine on it and the name Goodwin. Are you sure it's for...her?
hi all, well snow i dont know what that is never seen it in real life i think you need to bottle some and send it to florida it got to 92 today and is 87 right now man i would go for snow, the do make snow down town but i dont think it is the same lol
mmmmm pies, i am a baker and cant bake pies hmmmm something wrong with that picture,
well going to work in the yard.
I'm here, just checking in for a few then going to relax. I had to go shopping after work today, which I detest (shopping, that is; I'd rather work! LOL). But I needed some new pants for work, and found some good deals at TJ Maxx.
What I really want to do is go become one with my armchair and ottoman and the remote control. I'm wiped out. Having been home from work for two weeks with pneumonia, this is my first week back, and I'm exhausted; don't want to overdo it.
dont over do it my sister in law gets a relapse really easy once the lungs have been damaged take a load off and relax.
i checked on the package the post lady told me that i was going to south carolina then to arizona so maybe you can interfer and stop it so we all know what it is, i am curious now. going all over the US and all. hope its not a plant will be dead with all the traveling guess it is on vacation and cant decide where to go lol
The mail people are smelling for Arejays pies. They can't find the aroma. If she don't make any, it may come back this way and I'll get it.
JLJ, you do take it easy. Get lots of rest and still drink lots of juice. Glad you are better but don't overdo while you are still weak.
Well I will just tell you all that package is here with me and it is going to stay, that is if it don't decide to grow wings and fly away. Can't let arejay get ahold of it she'll like it to much to share with us.
Night Mekos. I'll let you know if the weatherman is right and we do get snow. You are more than welcome to it. I really don't want it yet! Just too early for me. But, it probably won't last long. I said that last year, too, though, and it did finally disappear. In May! LOL
Have a good evening all. I only got about 4 hours of sleep last night, and spent the day with the grandbabies, so I am pooped! See you all tomorrow!
Flower you got a stinky package!! Did it have stinky cheese in it? I got a package. It is from Jan. Full of really fun seeds for the newbies!! Thank You Jan...I love to get seeds I have not seen before.
Good morning everyone. Boy that package is going to smell strong by the time it gets to Maine. Good thing it was opened on the way to air it out.
Never did get my shady bed finished up. Too chilly for me to stay outside long yesterday but today is supposed to be warmer so just maybe.
I spent yesterday morning making turkey jerky for DH and the dogs got to eat the test pieces when they weren't done enough. OH BOY now the littlest one doesn't want to eat anything else. I'll have to see if I can get pictures of them so you can see how cute they are. Their mom isn't a problem to snap she just sits around most of the time but her two boys are running nuts.
Well it wasn't stinky cheese arejay but it sure did smell.
Boy you all have more get up and go than I do. I planted 4 Mums ,transplanted about a dozen hostas and 2 little blue mist spirea bushes
I have a couple small starts of unknown hostas if anyone would like to have them. There are maybe 4 or 5 of them. They are all different or at least the leaves are different LOL. All of my tags have gotten lost so I don't know which is which now,
Robin that wasn't the package that's been traveling around the country. This one has a smell to it so if it comes to your house grab it and open it up. You'll see what I mean by a smell. It's not a bad smell though DH swore it was stinky to him.
Morning everybody! Well, the w-man was wrong again! Yippee! It is a beautiful morning out there! About 60 degrees, so I am going to try to get more done outside today.
Tubby, if you have more of the hardy hibiscus seeds, I would love some. Let me know what you need.
Flower, if you don't have anyone else that needs those hostas, I would love some of those!
What is in the stinky box? If not cheese, just what is it? LOL
Good morning everyone...Nice cool beautiful day here today...I hauled grass clippings from all over the county for LG beds yesterday...Brought my DH home about 100 naked ladies (bulbs that is) red spider surprise lilies...I planted them around the light pole in LG... My DH and DD were laughing said now they can watch naked ladies do a pole dance...See what a good wife and daughter I am...WOW I couldnt believe how many bulbs those things make...I dug one bunch must of been 40- 50 bulbs in one lil bunch...Wish I could run up on some yellow ones...
Im off today in search of a brown layer...Still have a few leaves left from last year in a pile...
Then have more bulbs to plant... I may go back and get more surprise lily bulbs..scatter a few over the yard.. tho I dont know how I will keep hubby from mowing them down..
Now Robin why in the world would you think we are in cahoots with KT1 who hasn't even said a word about a package that I can remember. Let me think...KT1 is Cue, KT2 is Loca and KT3 is missing until she catches up on her garden stuff among other things. Only one I seen post anything about a package was Loca, Mekos, Seray, Flower and Mindy and I can't imagine a package going to all those states in just a few days. No, I haven't seen the stinky package just heard what was in it and when I told DH that's what he said...stinky. Of course my memory isn't the best when my mind's crammed full of things I need to get done before it gets much colder so you might not want to take my word for it.
Besides I haven't mailed your package to you yet. It's still on the porch waiting to be taped up and took to the PO.
Someone here is not telling the whole truth!! I just got a package. OMG was I surprised!! It is French yes let me tell you again...French Lavender...It is beautiful beautiful and smells heavenly. I love it , love it...Margaret you are so very thoughtful... I don't know how you knew I was not feeling well and this made me feel better immediately of course...
Unless maybe I told you or someone and they told or maybe like KT2 says I am confused maybe...maybe not though.
But ether way...I love French Lavender...Thank you for thinking of me...
Hi everyone. Just checking in, I had company all morning. Hope everyone is good today. I can't believe that package got by me, Arejay. I almost got it. I have lavender, but mine is english lavender, and mexican heather.
Well, I missed the snow again, so maybe later.
Missing you Mechelle. Got to hurry back.
Thanks for the link to the cobra lily, Arejay- but hoping to find it for less than 20.00, or find seeds for it and grow one. I had looked at that place before, and they don't have seeds.
Well, glad everyone is having a good day to start out and will be back later. Got some things to do.
You are welcome Robin. I just had a feeling you weren't feeling well lately so I thought I would cheer you up. Which culivator did you get? No I don't know because I just told the guy on the phone to pick out one and send it to you he had more than one. Glad it made you feel better. Forgive me for not telling the whole truth?????
Darn now I won't be able to do that again everyone will suspect me right off the bat LOL.
Well you have long feelings Mindy and I do appreciate your thoughtfulness. THe name of my Lavender is Lavandula Dentata Linda Ligon. It is like none that I have and Lavender I have a few as I love them so much. Mindy it has a bud and it traveled very well. The leaves are different than any of mine. They are like scalloped I guess you would call them. Here is a picture ignore everything you see but the lavender the pictures of the dust are just extra...ok?
Can You see it?
Yes I see it. Looks lovely can't wait til the bud opens so you can tell us the color.
As for my feelings, well accodring to my sister I have the ability to pick up from words how someone is feeling. Must be right cause I haven't missed yet that I know of.
A few days ago (Saturday, I think), I started twenty hib seeds (four different varieties), and to date, 8 have germinated using the paper towel/baggy on the cable box method. I just put the ones that germ'd in small seedling trays to see how they do. I'm so excited! :-)
I started 5 each of Hibiscus Coccineus (3 germ'd); Luna Red (2 germ'd); and two other hardy varieties -- pink and white -- of which 3 germ'd. I don't think I nicked the others right, so I re-nicked them again and reset them on the cable box to see if they'll germ as well. But I'm happy that I got 8 to go already.
Hi Tubby, I'm not sure if I have any indian grass seed left, I might have given it to arejay for the newbies, but I did give a bunch of ornamental grass seed of some kind to my DS, so let me check and see if she has any left and what kind it is first. OK?
Whew, what a day! Winter storm warning in effect for us until Thursday night. Bother!! I don't have time for winter storms now. It can just wait! Until November, maybe. LOL
Now I told you to just send those snow storms my way. I love snow. It is getting down to 49 here tonight. It's in the upper 70's and 80's in the daytime but 50's at night and tonight 49 so it's nice. I can enjoy it. Just color me happy again.
Good Morning Everyone...
A little blonde oh I mean bird told me that someone has a birthday today
Happy Birthday to you girl!! Those are cheerleaders doing a little cheer for you, for your birthday. Have a wonderful day. I hope you do just want you want to do for the whole day.
Good morning. Well, Mekos, a little white stuff coming your way today. Not sure I would call it a winter storm, but we do have white stuff on the ground, barely. But the wind is blowing and it is still falling from the sky, so we will see how much it piles up today.
Happy Birthday RRM!!! Hope you have a wonderful day and all your birthday wishes come true! Yippee! Birthday cake!!
Thank you so much skellogg...My son has a big test first block at school so now I have to wait till 9 to leave..He wanted to get his assignments for the next few days so he wouldnt get behind...What a fine responsible young man he is...He is taking 2 college courses this year (10th grade) through a program at school.. If he passes these courses he gets paid a 100.00 incentive from the school.. SO he is working hard for the money...My other son lol he hates school...rather be out driving a tractor...sigh..He is a survivor he doesnt care what he has to do to make money he is 13 worked all summer for who ever would ever would hire him ..lol He hasnt spent a red cent of his money either ...Rather spend mine...I like to see him not squander his money away tho...The educated one(ha thats what he calls himself) really doesnt like to work .. lol funny how different my children are...
GM All. Prayers to you and family on your loss huney.
Well gals you will not see me on here as much as usual now. I managed to get me a part time job and I start today. Hoping it works out well and I think I am going to like it.
A Great big Happy Birthday RRM Have bunches more !!!!!!
Flower, I really don't think that with all your garden work all you do is sit! LOLBest of luck with your new job, and I hope you like it. Life is too short to work at something you don't enjoy, even if it is part time. ;-)
Huney, sounds like those 2 boys will even date entirely different kinds of girls. LOL Our twin grandsons are going to be so different also. You have done a great job with them, as they save money, and work hard, and have smarts. You should be proud!! Nice job!
Lolly, I sure hope you enjoy your first hosta! I don't have any either, but am starting some from seeds that Seray so generously gave me. How exciting!! I wonder, can I start some of them now? Do they need to be cold stratified first? Any advice people?
I'''mmmmm Baaaaacccckkkkk!! LOL Too Bad it's 11pm my time, you're probably all in bed. Had some reading to do to get caught up..
Arejay- how are u? What's this I hear about pumpkin pies floating around? lol Sounds yummy :-)
Mekos- Hiya girl! Missssed talking to you, I dmailed u back about Halloween...
Skellogg- U are funny girl- a haircut like a bat flower! But ya know, it can be done. I have a picture of a purple one Seray sent me and made it my desktop pic and I could so do that! The haircut I designed I named "Cleopatra" didn't cut it yet, but don't be surprised if I post a pic of an ugly mannequin head named Debra that looks like a bat flower!
Flower! Thats funny that you are a cosmetologist too! 1500 hrs here also, I am at about 500.. But PM is pretty advanced. I have a lot of clients already if you can believe it. I haven't done a perm on a live person yet, but can rock it out on my mannequin. Perms just kind of aren't in style right now, you know how things change so much. But we do a lot of shampoo sets, relaxers, cuts & coloring. Being near Memphis & all, we have a pretty diverse group of clients. I like being to able to do a service on anyone that walks in. I do a lot of block coloring and co-lites which are cool and creative. I have even done purple under my daughters hair and it looked awesome! I will show you a pic. I like saving money buying product and being able to do my girls' hair at my cost. I had to pay that bill a time or two and uh-uh, not doing that anymore. So if you ever need any Paul Mitchell stuff, I get everything 50% off.. Lots of great products out right now. And the styling tools are really awesome too.
Miss Seray- I haven't forgotten about you my dear friend! Did you want some of my Hosta for your shade bed? I just found another cultivar today. It looks like Patriot but it has yellow swirls instead. Maybe you know what it is? I will be able to send out Monday. Just tell me what you'd like. I have some nice Surprise Lily Bulbs for you.
I still have a jillion Red Spider Lilies if anyone wants them.. just dmail me and send me a SASBE. I have at least 100 of them ready to go. Lolly, glad you got yours and if you want more, you know what to do! LOL
I got a variegated Rose of Sharon today! It has unusual shaped flowers but they are a burgundy color. Can't wait to see how it will do.. I also got a "Plum Crazy" Hibiscus too! I am gonna baby that plant to death! Purple is my favorite color and i love hibbies , so can't wait to see it. I think I am getting my greenhouse this weekend, I had one here on my property and didn't know it! Just have to move it. Need to get my veggies started soon . I will send pics..
Good to be back guys.. talk to you in the am ! muuahhh Nite
PS, there's my daughter Courtney's (14) pic. I did her hair and makeup for her before she performed her very first time in public.. Oh she sings and plays the guitar. Go check her out : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gL7N7T0OWfc
Sorry about my shaky amateur video, but I had to hold back the tears bigtime and people kept walking in front of me, lol .. She sings a lot of Taylor Swift and Demi Lovato..
You have a very pretty little girl there Mechelle. Oh the perms never go out in this area. We have a lot of little old ladies here LOL I love doing hair but just can't anymore because of the stupid shoulder and like I said the other one is bad now. :((((
GM, thanks guys.. Courtney gives me the chills when she sings. She sang at her school yesterday with a boy our family knows.. He's kind of her "love interest" so you can imagine she was on cloud nine, texting me all day about it, lol. The boys are swarmimg let me tell ya.. Gotta get out my fly swatter, lol.. We are in the Country Music state so there would be no excuse for her not to make it someday with her talent. She taught herself to play the guitar when she was only 13. My husband plays too, so she picked up a lot from him. She just goes online and gets the chords and lyrics and can play any song. She was offered at her first public performance a chance to record a demo for free at a local studio. Ya never know, huh guys? : )
I got 2 beautiful Belladonna Lily bulbs yesterday.. planted them in one of my lasagna beds. They must weigh a pound or more. Will share when I get babies..
I got woke up this morning by my other daughter Heather telling me 2 of my horses were out. Just walking around eating grass.. My fault, didn't lock the gate after cleaning their paddock yesterday.. Horsey nature, lol
Good morning Everyone
Lovely daughter Mechelle.
I am looking for some plants and some suggestions.
The plants: Moses in Basket that bloom white and the red. (yes Mekos I still have the one you sent me these are for a friend of my sister who's trading me plants) and a devil's claw cactus.
Suggestions for my shady bed. How long do colubines bloom? And I need suggestions for filling the middle sides of the bed (not the main middle of the bed it has a large rock there that can;'t be moved so I'm planting around it. So far, I have hostas in one corner, want to plant columbines in another corner but if they don't bloom long may put those in a middle spot, have a pink bleeding heart for one corner, and white daffodils, virgine blue bells, and 3 crocus bulbs for one area maybe a middle spot since I'm just putting a few back of each. I would love astible in one corner but don't have those yet. Any other suggestions for the other 3 sides?
Thanks for the compliment Mindy. I have Columbines but haven't had them long enough to really know much yet. I know I got a ton of seeds, but they haven't rebloomed. Mine only grow about 1-2 ft tall and are kinda boring when they don't have flowers. For your shade garden, maybe some flowering succulents around the rock, like Ice Plant or Baby Sunrose. Or some Showy Stonecrop.. they get a little taller..
Mechelle, your daughter is very good! Has she done any recordings of her material, other than on youtube? I would like to get a CD of hers, if she has one. If not, perhaps she can make one? Maybe there is a place around there where she could record a couple of songs for little or no cost? Let me know! Wow, talent and looks!
Hey you guys. Just checking in, been working in the yard all day. Working on the lasagna garden. I'm about half way through it. Gonna rest until the meeting and will have plenty of margaritas and mojitos and turkey sammiches for refreshments.Trusty pink spatula will be waiting for everyone.
Aren't the little ones something LOL I don't have any but have lots and lots of nieces and nephews I used to babysit. Seemed like soon as they learnt how to talk they never shut up.
Our leaves are just getting started here. The spring trees are dropping leaves but the main show is just getting started. I'm lucky enough to live in the middle of woods and can see hills all around me so I get a beautiful show to watch.
Like you I've been getting the gardens ready for winter and doing cleanup. Still like a little more work but most of it is done.
Were you the one who was looking for spring flowering bulbs?
I am still looking for a few more bulbs, daffs, tulips, crocus, etc.
I'm digging out a huge growth of orange lilies. The fans are so thick that I'm chopping them out with a shovel. We call then "Road Lilies" because they are so common around here. They are a nice orange color though, similar to "Desert Song" in the Plantfiles, should be easy to grow most anywhere. If anybody is interested I could send a huge box for the price of postage, or swap for something (anything).
Hi everyone. I been out all day spreading mulch and I'm putting mulch everywhere if it needs it or not. I got half the huge pile moved but so much more to go. I'm mulching everything in sight. Working around the ponds right now, moving rocks and spreading mulch. Man this is work. But it looks so much better and I'm sure it will help the roots of the plants. I've got bunches of bulbs to plant and got to figure where will be the best places. Well, off here tonight. I'm wore slap out and bet I'll be sore tomorrow.
Good night everyone.
I no longer work there LOL They fired me!
I am waiting for it to warm up some too as I have a bunch of bulbs to put in the ground and a couple of bushes too. They should have already been put in but was at that stupid place working when I should have never taken the job to start with.
Some of my marigolds have taken on a second bloom with this late spell of wet cool weather. We haven't been frosted yet, but weather has been weird lately. Still nice to have blooms in October, unusual for us.
Hey you guys, I'm so sore I can barely move. I hurt in places I never knew existed. But my husband and me spread 6 more wheelbarrows full of mulch today. I have about 20 more feet of the lasagna bed to put cardboard down on and will have it about ready. If it does not rain tomorrow, I'll hopefully get it finished. I moved my rocks around both ponds and mulched to the edge of them and put the rocks back and it looks much better. I still have a little more to do on the greenhouse and it will be done and ready to cover with plastic. Need to hang the door and window. Going to lay down and rest till morning and try to finish this up tomorrow. Hopefully I will still be able to move tomorrow. Good night all.
Mekos you better rest up if you are too sore.
HI Cue. Well I've not planted the seeds but they don't seem to have any trouble sprouting when I let them go to seed outside. What do you need to know? Oh, and I got some daylillies for you yesterday more to come she told my sister
Hope you had a great weekend! Sounds like lots of work going on getting ready for fall. I'm digging up tropicals and prepping for winter. I planted Tuscan Kale and it's pretty cool looking. Kaelkitty told us about it on a forum this spring. When it gets giant size I'll send a pic. :) Anyone tried it?
I found a black plastic Tub (Halloween special). I'm going to put pitcher plants in it this spring. Found a good source on ebay. Goth. LOL
Mindy how are those grapes. Did you get them delivered to your house?
Skellogg, Holly and Trish packages go out tomorrow.
Flower what mil is the plastic you found? That's what makes the difference in your heating costs.
I like to wet a paper towel..lay out flat cover half with some seed... Not to many that you can't pic the good ones up..Fold the towel so it fits in baggie...I put on top of frig..Check in about 3 or 4 days..you'll see the little sprout..May take longer..You will know for sure which are good seed. This works so good for Hibiscus. I can't beleive it wouldn't work for any seed that size or close..
well, I dont need help sprouting them, ive got a few that are about 18 inches tall with buds all over them. my question was...
was i supposed to have pinched them back to branch? they seem awfully tall with only the leader . they arent leggy or sparse, but awfully top heavy. Ive had to stake two of them for support. was wondering if they will eventually branch on their own. they were 'Dragon heart' seeds given to me by mekos...
Good morning all... Home safe and sound from our journey..Things went well considering death took us away from home unexpectedly...It rained all day yesterday about 4 inches total...Rain forcasted for next 3 days, sure hope we miss that..Have plenty of work to get done, need the sun to shine for a while the garden is knee deep in mud...Havent gotten the greens planted yet every time it gets close to being dry enough to work out there, it rains all over again...Hope it doesnt drown my irises...
Hope all is well with you all, I see flooding has happened in several states...Stay safe and dry..
If it there was it wasn't me this time Robin I promise.
Seray finally got the grapes today they held them until they got their paperwork in order GRRR but came home from shopping with friend and mailman was here. Grapes are in wonderful shape still very damp and not a sign of wilting and DH is happy and already planning where to put them.
Seray don'tyou be hollaring at me I am innocent this time. Besides I would have dmailed everyone so they could bug the recipient for me. Only dmail you got was about the grapes arriving. So go hollar at someone else.
GM all, it's been chilly here the last couple of days, too. I think I better bring my hanging plants in today.. Still have tons of Red Spider Lilies for sasbe if anyone else is interested. I also found these cute little bulbs, have no idea what they are. They could possibly be daffodils, not sure. I will post a pic later to see if anyone recognizes them. Seems like every time I dig I find huge clusters of bulbs I didnt expect. Fun, huh? Hope you all have a good day.
Hi everyone, Checking in today. I never turned the computer on for a couple days. Was feeling better today. It rained for the past 2 days and more tomorrow and Friday.
Flower, I use 6 mil thickness and 25x100 roll. It's about that same price but you don't want to have to lap it because it will let in cold air if it isn't in one piece. We have a couple hardware places around here that carries it. The only thing you have to replace it every year. You can buy regular greenhouse plastic at some supplies places that is more expensive but lasts for 7-10 years. So it depends on which you want to do. Then just hang down some heat lamps with grow lights or regular light bulbs for the heat. (I have a 12x14 size and use 5 heat lamps with regular 60 watt bulbs - let them hang down low to the ground maybe 2 foot off the ground because heat rises and you need heat low for the ones sitting on the ground or low shelves.) I put a screen door covered with plastic and a window in there to allow some heat to escape if it gets too hot in the daytime, then close them in evening to hold in heat. Have something for back up heat just in case the power goes off, like keroseen heater or keroseen lamps or anything to help if power failure happens. Hope this helps.
Yes Thanks mekos. The one that I have been looking at is 12x100 6mil and has a 4 year warranty on it so I figure I would be good to go. My Gh is 12x7 but if measured it is 11x 6 so I won't have to be over lapping anything thank goodness. I am seriously thinking about doubling it up though. I have 2 heat lamps in there and am going to get a small heater of some sort to put in just in case. Have 2 grow lights too so I am set except for getting the plastic now and a heater.
That is great Flower. You are good to go. It's looking like winter might come early this year here. This is my kind of weather but I wasn't expecting it for a while later. It doesn't usually get this cool until Nov. or later. It's been in the 70's all week and raining again. Looks like we might need the greenhouses sooner this year.
Ooh Mekos, are those Alocasia Frydek? I just got some of those but I don't think mine have the purple color on the leaves. Mine are green with white on the leaves. Purdy, purdy.. How are you by the way?
Kel, too funny, down to 80's! That cracks me up! We are struggling to get up to 50. Nights down to 20-25. Good thing I'm planning on visiting there, and not you coming up here! You would freeze here! But the colors are really starting to turn with these cold evenings.
Still have a couple of inches of snow. I'll try to post a pic for you Mekos!
Tubby, had to go to work in a town about 30 miles away over the weekend, and just happened to see a business with 3 different kinds of ornamental grass. So of course, we stopped and raided a few seeds. Want some? Don't know what kinds they are, but all 3 were different and very pretty, about 5 feet tall.
hello all... Thought I might get to sit and visit with you all for a change but the weathr turned bad and its raining again.. Sat connection doesnt work worth a flip when its cloudy and rainy... Maybe the weather will be better tomorrow and I can catch up with what all is going on...
Hey Mechelle, I'm better, just awful sore muscles. My elephant ears start out all black then as it got older, it got some green in it. I can go find the name but it's different than the one you mentioned. I'll find the name and let you know. I also have some Polly-african mask looking things and some other ones also. I can never remember names.
Good Morning Everyone,
Jan I am glad to hear you are feeling better. I love your Elephant ears I have never seen one in bloom. Will you post so I can see the flower open when it does?
Skell, I know you are here but I have to skip over what you are writing I am afraid if I read it my garden will look like yours...White.. BRRRR, I am not looking forward to it.
KT2 turn the fan on high in Skells direction. I could use some of that heat but she obviously needs it more...
hello everyone... still very overcast here...rained most of the night...The temperature is rather cool today...I need to be outside getting some work done, but its so wet and boggy gonna need knee boots...
hello everyone... still very overcast here...rained most of the night...The temperature is rather cool today...I need to be outside getting some work done, but its so wet and boggy gonna need knee boots...
I traveled through and visited some of the springs when I was younger. I think it was around Little Rock. I've looked at property on one of the lakes there. Pretty pretty. I thought you were 8b like southern GA. Mountains sound nice!
Arejay, Here is my EE bloom. It's open on the side of it. I'll try for a better picture tomorrow. We actually got some sunshine today after it rained all night last night. It made it all the way to 78 today. We spread several more piles of mulch today all around my trees and bushes. The guys came and brought me another load of chippings today. This stuff is so full of green leaves and pine needles, I can't believe it is so good and free. They said they would be working in this area for another 2 weeks at least so would have more loads to come if we wanted them. We said we did so gonna have plenty this year. That mulch is HOT in there when we moved it. It was down in the 40's last night and it rained all night and it was probably 90 degrees, or more, in the mulch pile. It really held in the heat. Well, hope everyone had a good day today and got the to get out some. Sure was nice here.
Kelley, did you finish planting your garden?
I played in the dirt aaaaaaaaalllllllllllllllllllllll day long and yes - the fall veggies are planted and I'm soooooooo glad! Now to keep them watered until they sprout - lol. It's still gonna be in the 80s here, but not too bad.
Winter? Did someone say winter? Uh, I really don't know what that is - lol. We really don't get frost or a true freeze though I've seen some nights borderline. A couple years ago we had a bad freeze two nights in a row. Lots of folks lost lots of plants that year. My bougainvillas and my snail vine I thought were goners, but they came back. I lost a coupleof roses which was OK - my MIL planted them years ago in a bad spot and I hated them, so no loss there - lol.
We get the coldest temps in January early on, sometimes the end of December. Most things make it through with minor protection - I'll throw sheets on some things or bring pots inside, but usually nothing too major. Veggies I can cover if need be. Last winter we had a few cool nights and my friend put candles in her little cold frames to keep the veggies warm. She didn't think the plastic would be enough - lol. It worked!
Wow. Well, if you can grow stuff all year round I guess that would be good but don't think I would trade my snow for that. I like it too much. And the heat is just too much for the summer for me. I still say it's easier to add clothes to stay warm but you can only take so much off to cool down and it's just not enough for me. I breathe better when it's cooler. Never smoked a day in my life but you'd think I did with my breathing problems in the heat.
I may have an extra one I can spare. This is the first one I have seen bloom. I'm sending several packages out this week so probably will be next week before I can do more on plants going out. I really need to finish up my greenhouse and finish spreading the mulch and not a lot of time to do all this, before it cools too much. You might need to remind me next week.
I'm going to turn in tonight. I am tired. If it doesn't rain tomorrow, I got more to do on spreading mulch and some packages going out and want to finish the greenhouse, if I can this weekend. So GOOD NIGHT EVERYONE. Talk to ya later. Where is CUE? Haven't heard from her in a while. CUE, are you OK? You been having girls night out again?
Good Rainy Morning to all LOL. Raining here again today and suppose to rain for the next couple of days. They have even put flood watches out before it even started raining LOL.
I was wondering if any one of you would know if I bought a clove of garlic and planted it ,would it grow? I have been looking for some to get started and the price is outrageous on them, so I thought if I could do it this way I would have some.
Flower, Yes you can do that with garlic and shallots as well. Just make sure the garlic has some green tips showing. (clandestinely peel some of the white "paper" back if you don't see any) A lot of times when the garlic starts to sprout stores put it in the mark-down area. I've taken every one when I see them and just divide the sections & stick them in the garden or a planter if its winter.
flower - I buy all my garlic to plant at the Farmer's Market - divide up into individual cloves and plant. That way I know it hasn't been treated with any type of sprout inhibitor. Plus, it's locally grown so I know it will grow here - lol.
mekos - the desert is actually good for your breathing problems - lol. Seriously - back in the day people from back east used to move to this area to help with their breathing issues. The humidity combined with the heat is what makes it hard to breathe. We have very very low, well almost non-existant, humidity most of the year. But you're right that you can only get so, uh, undressed, to deal with the heat!
I like the snow, too - just not the cold that comes along with it... If you ever want to visit, you just let me know. We could do lots of work in my yard as you already know!
Well, it's lunchtime - gotta grab me a bite to eat . . .
Yes Flower - This is a great time to plant garlic in the Northern states. There is a difference in the many varieties though. "Hardnecks" grow better in the North, "Softnecks" grow better in the South. You will often see softnecks more as grocery store stock, so be careful what you get. October is the best time to plant the hardnecks for us northerners, the same as other Fall bulbs like tulips and daffs.
Try to find a "real" garlic grower in your area. Lacking that, check with a local farm stand or community market that sells homegrown stuff. Often these folks will gladly share all the information you'll need to get started. There are also some very interesting articles in DG's information forums on garlic growing, especially those written by Darius Van d'Rhys.
Hey guys- had to share this- This little puppy wandered onto my property today. I kept yelling at him to "git" from a distance. When he got up close I felt so horrible. Yes, I did the no-no.. I fed him. He's in pretty bad shape- ticks in his ears, sore paws, and I would say SPCA would call him emaciated. You can see every rib. He has a collar on- must belong to someone. He would barely let me come near him let alone touch him. He cowers when you reach your hand out to him. He started just wagging his tail after a few minutes of eating. My hubby is gonna kill me, but I could not just walk away knowing I could help him. I can't keep him, we already have 4 dogs but I at least gave him a meal. If he sticks around, I will doctor him up and find him a home.
Mechelle - good on you for giving that poor doggy a bite to eat! He sure is cute. I'm sure you can find a good home for him!
With the economy the way it is, chances are someone dumped him off, especially if you're in a rural area. People like that p!#% me off to no end... I've never seen so many "strays" around as I have the past few months. Makes me sick.
Yeah well if you think thats badLoca, about a month before I moved out here, a lady came to my door at 6am and said "Your horses are out by the street" I ran outside and someone had dumped 3 horses in front of my house. They were just hanging out in front of the fence like "let me in, those horses look healthy and happy" They were really emaciated. I went door to door for 3 hours thinking maybe they got out or something.. By noon when no one was looking for them to feed them or something, I called Animal Control. By then I was mad at how they were being taken care of and didn't think the owner needed to have them back. They went to a rescue facility. It was funny, the animal control guys couldn't get them in the trailer, but I got all 3 of them in on the first shot. In California it's way worse than out here- hay was $16 a bale when I left and rumored to be going up. I have a very soft heart when it comes to animals.
We get strays here as well. Since I live on a dead end road, people are always dropping off unwanted pets and they instantly come here. They sense warm hearts and good food. I was lucky enough to see one who dumped 5 puppies out one morning and knew who it was so I gave him 30 minutes to contact me to come get them or face a warrant, he didn't believe I would and he didn't so I did. He went to jail. Animal control got the puppies and they were all adopted as far as I know. I took dog food to the animal shelter to be able to check on them and saw when the last one was gone. That is one of my biggest pet peeves. The other is hudlems tossing their liquor bottles out and busting the bottles and beer bottles and cans tossed out on the road side out here. Now I take pictures of stupid idiots and turn them in.
What is wrong with putting a trash bag in your own car if you want to drink and toss the waste, and put in your own trash bag at home. Take puppies to the animal shelter in hopes of finding it a home and food until then. At least they would have a chance.
I guess I should shut up now.
OH, good morning everyone.
Flower I couldn't help you with garlic, I personally never grew any, but sounds like someone has helped you there.
Loca, I just might shock you (and me) one day and show up out there. Even if it's just in my dreams.
Where is CUE?
Hi Seray. You and Flower, Hollyhock and Blondie are about to get a surprise. Woo-Hoo and Ye-Ha! It would have been there a day earlier, but I had company all day today and for some reason, they just left a little while ago. Company always show up at the most inconvienient time.
Well, going to go for a while. Hope you all have a good evening.
Start getting tag numbers and report them and when they have to pay fines a time or two, they will quit doing it so much. I use to ignore stuff but when it's right here in front of my house it got to me and now, I'll report any I see.
You know I have been noticing that some people(I won't call any names) doesn't have a want list out there so others can look and see what they would like and surprise them so if someone(and again I won't call any names) would perhaps go put one up, they might get more surprises that they actually want instead of getting something they may need to send off in trades to get rid of. But I won't mention any names, Seray. Just thought I'd mention that.
I love animals a lot and even though I can't have too many in the city here, I hate to see them dumped off like that. Like mekos said, at least take them to a shelter so they have a chance. Better yet, don't get an animal unless you can commit to caring for it for it's entire lifetime. Depending on the animal, that could be a long time. We had a horse when I was a kid that lived to be almost 23.
Yea, but I won't mention any names. I've been wanting to surprise her, but I guess this will really surprise her. Me too if she likes them. Those lists sure would help us less informed people out, ya know. EVERYONE needs to post a WANT list just for the rest of us to go look at. Is everyone listening?
I will do that. I always get caught up on the have list. I have lots and lots of things but I'm not very good at taking cuttings just yet. Working on it. Hate to have all wants and no haves. LOL Thought I'd try to do that this winter.
Well, some of us want to see what you want NOW, before winter. How about getting it started?!? I had to bug Loca to get hers started too a while back. guess I can go look at hers again and see what she might want.
You're too good to me mekos! Seray - watch out. Once she knows what you like the mailman will be stalking you - lol.
I have much more on my want list than my have list - that's cuz I'm a newbie. You wait - by next fall I hope to have lots of stuff to share to repay all the kindness of the great peeps I've met on Dave's!
Now I gotta go check out the weird and wacky list of seray . . .
hello everyone... Hope you had a great day ..I spent mine digging hosta for trades and rearranging some in the yard... Kids had Dr appointments for allergy shots and poison ivy... ughh will be glad when cold weather gets here and that stuff dies back some... My youngest gets it every time he walks with-in half a mile of it...
Rain is moving back in for tomorrow, my yard is still wet from 4 inches over the weekend and showers after that...
Going to make a LG in front of my porch as soon as I get all the gourds pulled down( hopefully tomorrow).. I want to make it a pink bed.. I already have a pink double delight coneflower and rosy return daylily and some pink lantana started by the steps...Now i have to decide what else to put in it...Open for suggestions lol and ideas of plant combinations that work well together...
My irises are looking good...all the rain has covered some of the rhizomes but im hoping since they are new maybe it will offer a lil protection this winter from the cold...Guess next spring I'll have to get out there and let those rhizomes see a lil sunshine again...
I found out Loca. She didn't purposely plant them. Soil was too wet. Hehehe. There is still hope for me yet. I decided to go ahead and plant my brug seeds for the contest so look out all you brug lovers. Mine will be far behind you guys but on it's way.
I hope so... I also have a miniature pink rose on the other side of my steps...gonna pull those gourds and lay my boxes tomorrow... A guy who does yards brought me a trailer full of grass clipping to use... Now i just have to get my brown to go down.. I found some top soil on sale for a dollar a bag(40 ponds) today and bought 1o bags put on top so I can have it ready to plant next spring...
Good Morning all !!!! Another rainy day here.:((((((((( It has rained here so much this year and nothing has done well. It has been good for the potted plants and all but the rest just drowned. My mums I just put out look terrible. In a good spot with good drainage but just so much water and the ground is having a hard time of getting rid of it.. I had walnuts just beating the heck out of the house last nite. the wind was blowing so hard with the storm coming in and I am hoping that it took the most of them off the limbs. Really sounds like a bombing going on when they hit. LOL
Hey all I was just reading the Accu Weather and they are saying the Mid West is going to get dumped on with snow and then it is moving into the North East and Great Lakes area. Everybody in that area bundle up and be careful. It's moving your way too arejay. Suppose to start tonight.
Good Morning Everyone. Flower that was just what I needed to hear right now snow on the way.
Been cleaning walls and junk in the living room and kichen the last couple of days. Fall get ready for winter cleaning. Living room is done, kitchen is started and I'm ready to get back outside already. Still waiting on dirt from DH sigh the man is sloooow.
Oh Mindy we're not suppose to get any yet. Just way North of us LOL Not as far away for me as it is for you though. I am trying so hard not to turn our heat on yet and I am afraid we're going to have to here shortly. I have been setting around with either my house coat on or a Hoodie and DH has a hoddie and a toboggan on LOL. He has a lot more fat on him than I do and he is freezing to death LOL
Oh good I'm not ready for snow just yet though I can remember the first little snows in October then by Thanksgiving getting the big ones.
Taking a break from cleaning the kitchen walls. I'm half done debating whether I have time to clean behind the refrigerator before Dh comes in for lunch. We are supposed to get rain today and if it does he'll be here getting in my way if I try to clean. There's always tomorrow LOL. The good news is all that digging with the shovel this summer means I don't feel sore from climbing up and down on the chair to get things off the top of things and to reach the top of the walls.
OMG you guys are not going to believe this... Courtney sang at school with a boy a little bit ago.. The baseball coach is Darrel Worley's cousin..(country music singer) as soon as she was done, he pulled out his cell phone and called him and told him he needs to come listen to her sing because she's going somewhere... OMG my hands are still shaking, lol Pray it happens you guys pray pray pray
Hey blonde I love that photo...It is so in tune with halloween and i love the way the light is filtering down behind it...all you need is a pumpkin and old tomb stone.. you will be ready...The dried flower heads look like spiders...Ha I think it should get picture of the month...Trish
Thank you guys, I appreciate all the prayers and compliments so much! She is all excited, she keeps texting me saying it's the best day ever! Love it ;-) I just wanna be her maternal road groupie and never work again, lol..
Hey Blondie, you are ready for Halloween. That is great.Hey on the home page they are having a photo contest go apply for it. I bet you would do good with it.
Hollyhock you and Blondie and Seray all got packages that went out today. Got more packages to go out Tuesday because of live plants so the rest of you guys will just have to wait a little later.
Hey Mechelle can I be a road groupie too? I just want free admission so I can travel and listen all the time. (I'll jump up and scream and yell and throw silly string all over and crazy stuff like that.
There ya go.. Hey, we will have that darn gathering we were talking about and you guys can see her here. I have this perfect campfire pit by the pond with cedar log chairs around it. We could even do a little Brug Tribal meeting there with Tiki torches, lol and real mojitos!
Hey, I got lottery ticket for the big one saturday night, Loca. Great Mechelle and with all the phone and laptop stuff, we can let everyone watch and still be groupies too. Seray, you just go girl. You rock with that permit. No boundarys to all the fun and new seeds. By the way, where did you put your want list. I still couldn't find it, oh is it on the seed forum? I'll go look. I was looking on your list at your personal info. page. I had forgot about the other lists. Drat.
wellllll hello alll
nobody here today, looks as if it is a ghost town here
just dropped in to say hello,
my son won his game against his rivals 20-12 yippeeee they are the hardest team to beat and we did it.
take care all
Hi e1, Guess I missed the Brug meeting last night.. oops.. I keep doing that. What did I miss?
Hey Loca- you don't need to win the lottery to get out here, girl! I found tix from Sac to Nashville for $198 roundtrip.. You just have to get them at least a month in advance. I so would love to have everyone here ;-) How cool would that be? We could do out fun Puzzles at a real little gathering with real Mojitos!
Miss Mindy, did u get ur package? The mailman left me a note that I owed him 31 cents! LOL In a little brown envelope, I guess that was nicer than him returning it for not enough postage. I hope you at least got it today as there is no mail on Monday, Columbus Day..
Got the bed in front covered with pine mulch today and put mulch around the new daylilies I planted a couple of days ago.. BTW I am offering on a couple forums trades of fans of my "Kwanso" daylilies if anyone is interested. They are common I hear so not asking for the moon & stars, lol .. Just dmail me ;-)
We had a bbq earlier and I am stufffffeeedd! My DH bought this beef brisket that was pre-cooked for he thought $6.29- Turns out it was $6.29 a pound, lol.. and he bought 2 ! No wonder the grocery bill was so high.. Silly man.. oh well he cooked, I didn't, so therefore it was worth it. Kinda like he took me out to dinner, lol
Hope you all are having a good night.. M
Good morning E1! Brrr, cold here! About 12 degrees! Sure will be nice going to AZ this week! Need a shot of warm weather! Needless to say, not getting much done outside here right now!
Tubby, will try to get those seeds out to you before we leave, will send grass seed and some tree seeds.
Kelly, I plan on bringing a trailer load of warm weather back with us. LOL
Morning Gang - We've got little GD Olivia this weekend, the kids are off on vacation. She's our 2 year old Hurricane from Heaven! I took her to the local pumpkin patch yesterday to pick out her favorite, of course I had to buy a few, not just one. But times like these are precious fun as you all know.
GM everyone.. Hope you all have a great day. I am waiting for my daughter to get home so I can go make a big family breakfast.. Sunday tradition.. supposed to be beautiful and sunny in the high 60's this week so you know where I'll be! lol
HAGD , Mechelle
Hello all...I made a flower bed all down the side of the house hauled bricks, dirt, all components of lasagna garden...then I sat flowers in there pots over in there for now... Think I will wait till spring to plant it...If you guys have something in pink your willing to trade or share, I'd love to include them in my bed...Im considering planting ferns in the back then planting the front in flowers...I just love the way ferns blend with other flowers...Hubby likes a more manicured look... but he who does the work, gets to pick the flowers lol...about 55 here today with a cold mist falling...Probably a good thing... If I do much more work today I prob wont be able to move tomorrow...I have a torn rotator cup in my shoulder , if I over work it I pay the next day...
Big breakfast sounds good Mechelle... Ha we had fried hot wings and cream potatoes for breakfast... Kids want the craziest things on the weekends.. I love the traditional breakfast foods, but they have to eat that each day before school so weekends are a treat to them...
Hi huney, how r u today? Great I hope ;-) I made bbiscuits n sausage gravy, bacon, hash browns & fried eggs. The fam was in 7th heaven, lol.
Here's a pic of one ofthe finished lasagna beds I mulched yesterday.
Hello everyone. I am new here but wanted to introduce myself. I have 3 gardens, one is 40ft.x 40ft. which is my vegetable garden, the second is a flower garden that is 40 ft. by 4ft., and the third is a raised bed combination strawberry patch and herb garden. Right now it his colder this year than most and my hubby and I are mulching in the strawberries and my perenial herbs. I am really looking forward to the new season this spring as I will be able to garden more again. It has been about 10 years since I could garden due to health problems associated with obesity. On August 31 I had gastric bypass surgery and by spring I should be 100 pounds lighter and more able to move.
I hope you all have a wonderful day!!
I don't really check out the real name forum but I really thought Arejay was a guy:)
No way I could leave plastic pots out, the doggies would have a ball. Spent all day re-potting potatoe trees, goodness know what I will do if they all come...only want a couple for our yard, oh well enjoy giving away anyway.
Welcome Mickey! Do stop in frequently as we would hate to have you miss out on all the fun and laughs!
Mechelle, that will be great fun when they start to bloom seeing all the colors you will get.
Al, love the idea of your cutie for our chat mascot. She is so cute! 2 year olds are so-o-o-o much fun! Love the "hurricane from heaven" tag! Wouldn't it be great to have that kind of energy again!
It's up to 20 degrees here, and if it was January, I would think it was beautiful outside! It's been snowing all afternoon, and coming down just as pretty as can be. It really is pretty! Just not so pretty for Oct! LOL
OK Skellogg, where is the pictures!?! You know I love snow.
AL, beautiful mascot . Have fun !
Congratulations Blondie on the football game. GO TEAM!!!!
Mechelle, you lucked up! Good job.
Welcome Mickey. Nice to hear ya found us. Hang around, watch out for Lucy, seems some get lost after finding this place.
Just checking in but got to go again so will check in later this week. Got lots to do.
Good night John Boy.
Happy Monday Everyone!! Hope everone has a wonderful day!
I am up early and have lots to do lincluding cleaning some zinnia seed and some sunflower seeds. I have one appt today and will be going to mom's house to take some cloths in so I can wear them.
We had a hard freeze last night so the garden is done. I had my hubby go out and harvest our butternut squash so they would not freeze, boy was it a good year for squash. I will have some butterbnut squash seed to trade if anyone is interested.
Hi Mickey, hope you enjoy being here with us. We have a lot of fun here and have some nuts to keep us enjoying the thread. LOL
Has anyone heard from arejay or cue for awhile? I haven't been on here to talk much but have tried to catch up of an evenings and haven't saw either one on here in a while.
Morning All - Welcome aboard our train Mickey, you'll enjoy the trip!
I did find some more genuine Italian purple hardneck (not redneck) garlic for northern gardens over the weekend. It's local grown at an Amish farm just down the road from here. These are nice clove sets ready for fall planting, not seeds. They plant pretty much like other fall bulbs, tulips and daffs, etc. I've got a good supply, will share some if you want.
LOL Seray! Nope, don't need to bring anything! I've got plenty for all! Just gonna throw some burgers and brats on the grill! I'm sure that you get snow too, ,Al. It really is pretty country! Can't wait for everyone to come and visit and see it all. Gilda will love it! Right now is elk hunting season, so the snow and cold really help! Nothing better than traipsing around the woods and listening to the elk bugling! Wednesday I leave for AZ to visit Kelly, don't know what to pack for clothes! Not used to weather that warm! LOL Guess I'll leave the long johns at home this trip.
Thanks, but God gets all the credit for the scenery. We are just lucky enough to be able to enjoy it everyday. And the weatherman says that we will be back up in the 50's and 60's by the end of the week and next week, so goodbye snow for now! That's alright. Maybe by the time I get back from AZ I will be able to finish my outside work. Still have plenty to do before winter really sets in for the year.
Great views Sandi! How I miss the snow (but not the cold!)...
I've talked to cue - she's really busy with life - lol - but I have not heard from Robin at all. She's really lost this time . . . Anyone heard from her?
You might want to pack your beach wear - lol. Normal temps are the low to mid 80s and we'll see that this week until Thursday - 93°, then 99° for Friday and 100° for Saturday! I just want this heat to go away! It will be in the 60s to low 70s at night. Plus, every building you enter has the A/C blasting so if you're not used to that you'll be cold - lol. I always wear thin long sleeves or bring a light sweater if I'll be in a building too long or a restaurant as it gets downright chilly!
what i would do for snow hmmmm, i went to Tenn. to gatlinburg and pigeon forge in 1984 or 5 for a weekend i had sooo much fun i did learn that you dont park up hill on snow or ice you tend to slide some lol, i had fun though, i am planning on going to see snow if the husband behaves and acts like a human to me. my son really wants to go have a snowball fight. lol
well it is home and i am not allowed to be here so i better go before he gets mad again. chat later

Huney, enjoy the trip with your Granny! Be safe! She sounds like a wonderful person. Just think of all the changes she has seen in her life so far! How interesting it must be visiting with her!
The Smokey Mtns. are beautiful. I drove thru them this spring with my Mom. Was out in NC on business, so took a week and drove around the country on the way home. They really do look smokey all the time, but we didn't have much fog, so we could see for miles. Very pretty! It was a wonderful trip!
Tubby, do keep us posted! Our thoughts and prayers are with you, and we will be keeping our fingers crossed for you.
OK BLONDIE, if you go back to pidgeon forge, you tell me and I'll meet you there. That is just up the mountain from me. We'll have a snowball fight. I'd love it. Let me know if you do decide to go. Ye ha.
Tubby, we are all praying for you and you just rest up and keep warm and hang in there, and that good report will be there before you know it. Bless you.
I love all that snow up there. WOW! Beautiful. We need a big garden club snow ball fight.
Well, I'm out for more mulch moving so back later.
Huney prayers for you and your family. Your Grannie sounds like alot of fun to hang out with.
Tubby fingers and everything else that can be crossed for you.
Mekos I can just see you enjoying a snowball fight. I'm hoping for a big snow this winter just not until next month if Mother Nature doesn't mind. Snow cream is soooo good and need a reasonably deep snow to make it.
I'm supposed to be cleaning the rest of the kitchen walls but just can't get movitated to do them.
Mother leaves the house for a week and look what happens a party!! Courtney is going to be famous , there is enough snow to make a snowman, I know you are struggling Tubby but you have a great will and sence of humor, and we can tell your wife thinks you walk on water so you are getting better as we speak...Hunny you have fun with Granny and listen close she knows things 94 years old that is impressive. I wish I could sit and listen to her for a day. Blonde and Mekos Mindy and Mechelle, well you know.
Kelly are your veggies growing? Where is Cue ?
Anyway it is good to see you all. I have missed you. New thread looks like we need a new thread...Ill post it in a minute.
Checking in again. You have a safe trip Hunny,
And great pictures of the mascot, love em.
Hi Mindy, you know you are not so far away that I couldn't throw a ball up your way! better watch out.
HI AREJAY, Been missing you too. Hope you are doing well. Are you still warm? I heard cold weather was headed your way. You take care. Working on another envelope for you for the newbies. Is there anything in particular you could use?
Our weather is making a nose dive this week. Good thing my greenhouse is almost ready. Today is to be the last nice day for a week. Brrrr. I got compost about 2 feet deep everywhere. Mulch on top. Still picking lots of seeds so surprises may come your way this fall /winter season just randomly. If it does, just enjoy or trade off. OR send to arejay for newbies.
Its going to snow here soon Jan. Anything you send is great!! We don't get a lot of herbs. Parsley and chives is what we do get.I have a stash and use them but we don't get a lot in seed donations of herbs,so if you come across them...
Does the new thread work?
