Quote:A couple of weeks ago we got a barrel composter that is so much easier than trying to keep pile since it turns. There's a drip hole in the bottom for catching compost tea.
AWESOME... I've been looking at those! Our compost pile is failing... but for reasons that are obvious, and easily fixable. It's not covered, ever watered, nor do we put dirt or clippings over the top. Gotta do that this year!
Quote:Last year we got a rain barrel.Us too. We picked up two of them. I spent most of last week painting the one. The other isn't even hooked up yet. Gotta get that going also. Last year, the rain barrel water aided immensely in the garden and massively eased the water bill. If anyone out there is considering getting one.... I highly recommend it!
Quote:Herbs are easy, so you should do an herb garden. It's really cool to run outside and grab a handful of fresh herbs for whatever you're cooking.
The day you posted this.... that's what I was doing!
They are all just starting to sprout now... but I started lemon basil, and sweet basil, german thyme, rosemary, and oregano! Woo Hoo !!
Your passion flower is BEAUTIFUL Val! I don't think that I was aware that they are edible. I'd like to look up the rest of it's medicinal qualities.
Neat about the gardening club also. I'll check em out... and thanks for the tip!
Are those snow peas in photo # 2 ?
My first set of radishes will probably be ready during the week. Yours are lookin pretty nice also.
Lookin forward to seeing your pictures.... and my dog thanks you!

LOL. our compost pile yielded some accidental potatoes last year. It's kinda nice when that happens.

I've went bonkers with the flowering vines this year... trying to ensure that they will cover the chain link fence. Very cool that you haven't had to replant them Jack. I wasn't aware of that either. You should collect some of the seeds to add to the ConCen seed trading bonanza. I will too.
