ok, wanna share some news with everyone...

ive been an absentee member for awhile for several reasons, but one reason in particular was actually a happy one.

A friend of mine owns a shop.. and for the past few years, her shop has been located in a local strip mall. The opportunity presented itself to move the shop from its existing cookie cutter strip mall location, to a 150 + year old, (actually, oldest house int he area) two story Victorian mansion. along with this new house came a beautiful wrap around porch and a sizable back garden 9overgrown with weeds, dead wood and alot of unpruned and unkept shrub, trees and plants), the house being empty for several years and no one taking care of the grounds.

naturally, I was given the task of restoring the garden to its former 19th century Victorian glory. there are quite a few plants and shrubs that will be cleaned up and kept, and alot of unruly non natives that will be erradicated (can you say Mexican petunia???). I have managed to harvest a few various seeds from my own plants to sprout... such as morning glory for the arbors and Night blooming jasmine... however, ther is a long wish list of basic herbs and plants that are still needed.

the plan is.. to have a working kitchen herb garden, a butterfly and humming bird garden as well as a shade garden. the front wrap around porch is almost completely shaded and faces west, and tho it would normally get alot of afternoon sun, the 150 yr old spanish moss draped oak is sort of a natural umbrella. My plan is for some impatiens there, but would also need a few taller shade loving plants as backdrop against the porch railing.
If any of you gals have ideas for the front western shaded area.. let me know. also... seeds.. glorious seed would be welcomed as well. if, say, you happen to have any spare from your harvest lying around needing a purpose in life. or the best place to purchase them.

a list of some simple seeds needed are;

HERBS

chamomile
sage
basil
thyme
rosemary
catnip
dill
oregano
parsley
mint
lemon grass
lavender


Flowers:

impatiens
cone flowers
rose
butterfly/milkweed
salvia
marigold
honeysuckles
morning glories
sunflowers
daisies
vinca
cosmos
anything that will attract birds and butterflies is a bonus

really.. anything is welcome, provided its not drastically outside its zone. just let me know in a dmail... i am eager to get some things started so by spring they will be ready to transplant! I am the only person taking on this project as i have yet to gather any volunteers.. so any tips, tricks, shortcuts or advice any of you may have will be very very very much appreciated!

YOURS,
cue.

Hey you guys, I was wondering if you could help me figure what a couple plants are. I got them when I first started trading and they never bloomed so not sure what they are since I never had them before. They are in the same pot so I'll try to pull the taller one over so you can see the smaller one. I think one is a Nun's orchid but not sure and have no idea on the other.
This is the one I thought MIGHT be nun's orchid.

This is the other one. They were both tiny when I first got them and I put several things in the same pot, now this one is bushy and the other one is growing and there are some pregnant onions in there and something else too. Will seperate them in spring. But any ideas as to what they are?

Would it be alstromeria? Someone on ID forum thought it might be alstromeria.
And you think the first one IS Nun's orchid?!?(smileing big!) I was hoping it was, but had no idea. So many things I first got died and the names faded off others and since I had never had any of them before, I didn't remember what they were, but that is great. I really wanted one.
Do you know if there is any particular way to care for them? I just have them in potting soil in the greenhouse. Does the nuns orchid need to be kept like an orchid?(bark chips) They seem to be ok but I never grew those before so they may need more than I'm doing. I had an infestation of ants in the pots and threw in some ant killer all over the place and in the pots. Doesn't look good but I think the ants left. It's full of lizzards though. I like them though. They eat the bugs and mosquitoes. I put mosquitoe dunks in the ponds in there also though to help keep the pests down.

Especially when I thought those died because I didn't know what they looked like. All this time I had some. If I had known that was what those were, I probably would have taken better care of them. I can't believe I neglected them so much and slugs got on them and ate the leaves and the hot sun cooked them for a while until I put the canopy over the pond area. Man, what a find! And right in my own yard.

I assume you are talking about the calla's.. they are doing very well, they are blooming. about the only thing blooming int he Goth garden at the moment.. the oxalis is about spent.. not sure if this is normal, dormancy, or something is causing them to go, but they seem healthy enough.. and nothing is wrong with any thing else...

Heya, just peeking in, catching up a bit...

I've got a bunch of tomato seeds I need to get packed up for you... calling it "Carnival Mix"... saved the seeds when I made a huge batch of bruschetta from all my favorites. Might not get them packaged until after the holidays; you know how that goes, LOL.

And yes, I fermented them. I would not save seeds without fermentation except maybe for personal use. Fermentation helps with germination, but, more importantly (especially with seeds I trade or share), fermentation kills pathogens. I don't want my unfermented seeds to kill half of somebody's tomato seedlings because they were harboring wilt!

This is always such a fun thread!

HI everyone it's a white world out my kitchen window this moring. Yep, we got the snow last night and it was still snowing a bit when I let the chickens out. Ground is white and the bushes and trees have a frosting of snow. Looks to be about 2 inches worth. The dogs had a ball running in it this morning.

I have wanted some since I first saw some and I traded for one in my first trades but didn't recognize it as an orchid so went all this time thinking mine was dead until now. Can't wait for blooms.

Happy Birthday Mittsy!! Hope your day is fantastic!

seray - your Kale is cool looking! Some of the tomatoes made it through with no damage and some have frost damage. The main stems are good and there are several healthy leaf nodes, so they might make it. It's ok if they don't too... I harvested several green ones the night of the frost and will ripen those inside - not as good as vine ripened but still better than store tomatoes - lol. The damage on some is pretty extensive. Fall tomatoes here are always a gamble - you win some and you lose some. To have 2 cold nights in a row this soon in the year is freaky weather to say the least... Next year I'll gamble and set them out even earlier than I did this year (October 4th). Normally I'd put them out in early to mid September but if you remember we were still well over 100 most of October - more freaky weather - lol.

Hey looky at what I just got off accu weather.
If any of you all get this please be careful.


Heavy snowfall and blizzard conditions are likely aspects of a major storm pushing onshore in California today. The storm crossing the nation through Wednesday night will create different kinds of weather headaches for millions of people.


The snowstorm will crank up in California to the Intermountain West and the Rockies today. Snowfall of 1-2 feet will freshly blanket the Sierra Nevada and even elevations above 5,000 and 6,000 feet in Southern California. Snow just as heavy will also hit a few areas of Utah, Colorado, northern Arizona and northern New Mexico, especially tonight. Heavy snow and strong winds could shut roads through mountain passes.


The snowstorm will explode on Tuesday and Tuesday night over the central Great Plains. High wind and heavy snow could make for a road-shutting blizzard in Nebraska, Iowa and northern Kansas, for instance.


Snow will begin in earnest over the Great Lakes region on Tuesday night and, though Wednesday, highest snowfall could reach 1 foot in Wisconsin and Michigan.


The interior Northeast will likely get mixed wintry precipitation, maybe enough to cause rough travel, on Tuesday night and Wednesday.


Meanwhile, on the warm side of the storm, rain, storms and the potential for flash flooding will target the Gulf coast on Tuesday. Heavy rain and the threat of flooding will be in store for much of the Tennessee Valley and the mid-Atlantic coast.

Blondie, So very glad your son is doing better, still praying for a full recovery.

Well I woke up to an inch of snow this morning. It is so pretty out though, I may go out and take a few pictures, if I do I will post them here.

Hi Gang - Just got back from a long weekend trip, catching up on a lot of past conversation. We met with our far reaching family for a great Life Celebration service for our departed "Gramps". He didn't want a traditional funeral or showing, so we celebrated his life instead. It was a beautiful memorial service and luncheon reception afterwards. They featured "tons" of chocolate desserts, which were his favorites. It was a meant to be a fun event, as he would have wanted. What a great sendoff.

We spent the rest of the time in business meetings with family and lawyers to straighten out the estate matters. My son Richie has the first option to bid on the farm and property. Gramps had a nice 80 acre farmette spread in South Corning with a cute house and small outbuildings for animals and equipment. Richie has been Gramps' farm manager for the past three years taking care of the place while he was in assisted living. Everybody in the family wants him to have the farm, so the transaction should go smoothly. Now if we could only find him a nice country girl wife, he would be all set.

As you all know, I sent out 15 Christmas boxes last Wednesday to everyone on our web thread. I sincerely hope I didn't miss anyone unintentionally, think I about covered everybody, but golly things have been really hectic around here. If you feel left out, please get back to me. Hope you all enjoy the little boxes and think of others during the holiday season.

Take care and best wishes to all

Al

Miss this thread for a day and look at all the catching up I have to do - lol...

blondie - so glad your son is doing better! That is great news to start Monday morning!

Thanks everyone for the birthday wishes - I got mine - RAIN!! Yeehaw! Right now it's only 54 and drizzling... High of 56 today and more rain in the forecast most of the week. Flash floood warnings this afternoon. Not too much of an issue where I'm at in the city, but the outlying areas that can get really scary. When I lived in Tucson my house was miles int he country and the last mile was a dirt road through several washes. When it rained heavy everything flooded. If you were home you were stuck and if you weren't you couldn't get there - lol. Sure don't miss that though I do miss the land and the peace and quiet I had there...

Morning buddies!

Well it rained and it rained and it rained - all day and all night... That's the good part. The bad part? I felt like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz and really expected to wake up in Kansas this morning! The wind blew all night real crazy like... So hard the sheets of rain were coming down vertically - how crazy is that? They said we had gusts in excess of 75 mph and I belive it. Woke me from a dead sleep about midnight stuff blowing around and howling wind. It was dark when I went to work so not able to see too much damage - lol - probably a good thing. I did see my poor tomatoes blown all around though. First the frost nipped them, then the rain blew the fruit all over the place - lol. Talk about adding insult to injury... Power out all over the city and power lines and trees down - geez. When it rains it pours - literally - lol. Sure needed the rain, but I hate that wind!

Hope no one else blew away...

The wind is unusual but it does happen on occasion. Last spring I lost 40 feet of a block wall to wind gusts over 75 mph. We're not used to the wind so it does a lot of damage to stuff it seems. Some of my plants looked like they were leaning here and there but should be ok. Guess I'll find out when I get home from work - lol.

flower - be careful driving... that wind can be real nasty on the road. They have stretches of the I-10 that they close here when the winds get bad. It's wide open and terrible cross winds. They usually close it to big rigs first, then all traffic if it's bad enough. I've driven in it and it's no fun.

Hi guys,
Sorry I haven't been on but just wanted to explain a little where I've been. First, my computer had like 5 nasty viruses on it and I had to do another System recovery. I haven't had much time to mess with it as my son was admitted to the hospital on Monday. His problems started Friday and consisted of him saying crazy things, acting bizarre, and Monday he had the tremors. He was seen at the ER and then over to be checked at a psychiatric facility. They had him overnight and sent him back to the ER yesterday and then admitted him back to the regular hospital. Today he is on his way to a bigger hospital in another city to be seen by a neurologist. They can't figure out what's going on right now. He's been tested for infections, had a drug screen, and 2 cat scans so far and they don't know what's causing it. He won't talk to anyone at the hospital so that makes it hard. Need to get ready and head up there but just wanted to let everyone know and I will keep you posted.

'May today there be peace within.


12 of us in a room together.

I am supposed to pick 12 women (who have touched my life) and who I think might participate. I think that if this group of women were ever to be in a room together, there is nothing that would be impossible. I hope I chose the right twelve. May my hugs, love, gestures and communications remind you how special you are. Please send this back to me.

Remember to make a wish before you read the quotation. That's all you have to do. There is nothing attached. Then forward this to twelve women; please, try not to break the "flow" of this message. Did you make a wish yet? This is your last chance to make a wish...I want it to come true!

Quotation:
'May today there be peace within. May you trust that you are exactly where you are meant to be. May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith in the Universe/Spirit of Life/God/(whatever word speaks to you), yourself and others. May you use the gifts that you have received and pass on the love that has been given to you. May you be content with yourself just the way you are. Let this knowledge settle into your bones and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love. It is there for each and every one of us.

I know Robin and CajuninKy will be so happy to get these seeds and this was a great Christmas auction thanks to all of you. Lots of people will have wonderful gardens next year. Can someone please let gjb5766 see the winning bid because she couldn't see the auction since she wasnot a paying member. But she sent me a bid and asked to be notified of the winner. I don't know how to copy and send it to her. If anyone can do it, I sure would appreciate the help.
CONGRATULATIONS TRINA- great bid.

Thanks RRM and Mittsy- if I were picking for me, those were both winners, but this one was for other people who need help and Trina got it. Thanks everyone.

I have a bunch in water with H2O2 as well and they have rooted and have leaves - lol. I change the water every few days but with the peroxide it really doesn't get cloudy or grow any yucky stuff in there. I use bottled/purified water. I didn't realize this, but Brugs are like tomatoes. When you plant them in soil you plant them deep and roots will form wherever the stem touches soil. I think that's why they are able to hold up all those blooms - lol.

Bradenton Airport is almost downtown Sarasota. Ringling Museum of Art is close as well as Marie Selby Botanical Gardens. They have the largest orchid collection. Tree ferns and bromeliads abound. Hugh Banyan trees where you walk through the roots. Birds abound. You can visit Myakka State park while your there and see owls, herons, alligators and such. Sweeeet! Gingers came from there. Bradenton beach has huge Austrailian pines that bring much needed shade and make the beach very unique. This time of year the water is turquoise green and clear as a spring. You can shop at St. Armands circle but you'll need bucks.

Have fun!

Today it was eggs but I found a substitute that worked so the cake got made. Hubby said it was good whatever it was LOL. Brave man to eat something he doesn't even know what is.
Hoping to take some pictures of stuff tomorrow so you might get to see what I've been slaving over all month.
Well back to the latest project. Hugs everyone
