Congrats Joan.
I would love to smell her!! There is nothing like that new baby smell. Have you ever noticed it goes away at about six months.

Brooklyn Grace Staab was born yesterday about noon, 9 pounds, 9 ounces. Mother and baby doing well. May come home today.

Here's what's coming out of my garden onto my plate: sweet corn, grean beans, peas, kale, collards, chard, lettuce (getting bitter and going to seed), cucumbers, summer squash, carrots, onions, new potatoes, and all kinds of herbs, like dill and cilantro and chives. It's really overwhelming. Oh yes, brocolli and cabbage, too!

Any news of your granddaughter, Joan?

Comment by Barbara Livingston on July 24, 2014 at 3:43pm

Randall, I too have a new puppy. It's been years and I had forgotten how much time and effort they take -  and how much damage they can do when they chew! She is a sweetheart and will be a great companion for Rio once she matures a little.

When I first started to plant things I decided I would make an effort to buy non-Monsanto seeds, and when I bought existing plants they wouldn't end up killing the bees I was hoping to attract.  The link I posted is the first extensive list I have found of Monsanto seeds. Glad it is of use to someone.

Joan, I finally mowed my dichondra for the first time yesterday and I have to admit it looks pretty good.  My walkway looks as if it has been around for years instead of just months. :)  There are few spots that have yet to fill in, but for the most part there is a tight carpet of little green leaves that are soft when I step on them.

My zinnias wound up with the nasty powdery mildew which I have to admit was alot my fault as I didn't want to thin them properly as they were so pretty.  I pretty much decimated the bed cutting out all the ones with mildew. :(  Lesson learned: air circulation in hot and humid climate is important.

Also the native vines I bought online have really taken off and the Fuzzy Bean is blooming tiny delicate pink blooms!

Thanks for the list Barbara.

Comment by Randall Smith on July 23, 2014 at 7:12am

Barbara, I can see the dirty word Monsanto in your list site. Ugh.

Had my first ear of sweet corn last night (out of my garden)! So far, my new dog has kept the raccoons away. I just have to tolerate some occasional nighttime barking.

Daniel, I've never planted okra. Hope the Neem works.

I finally found a list I can print and refer to when I buy seeds or plants. http://againstthewall.info/2013/04/09/monsanto-owned-heirloom-seedn...

On my ongoing Don Quixotesque attempt to grow okra in the Pacific NW.... the plants sulked and declined.  The the sunroom was completed and I put them in there.  They started to flourish.  Now they are covered with aphids.  I  found a sprayer with neem oil.  That used to work for roses and orchids, we'll see if it works for okra!  The plants are lush and tropical - looking.  I don't know if they will survive winter in the sunroom, or have to start over next year.  Or give up!
