Oh, I like frogs!

Comment by Daniel W on April 6, 2014 at 12:34pm

There are lots of nooks and crannies and brush and rocks and okld wood.  I will look for a clay pot. 

The color and markings are perfect for hiding in the grass and weeds.  Perfectly evolved.

Oh! you are so lucky! I know you have a lot of places it can hide, but do you have an old broken clay pot for him to crawl into?

Yesterday I was checking the raised beds and discovered a little friend there.

Daniel, I haven't talked to Nate recently about his grafting progress. No harm in you trying--as if you have nothing else to do! Nice light set-up, by the way.

Randall, I just saw your comment about your son in law grafting tomatoes.  I was thinking about doing that too.  I had seeds last year for rootstock but maybe I can just use a vigorous hybrid variety.

Comment by Daniel W on April 5, 2014 at 3:27pm

I feel kind of bad about the mink.  But I am also not fond of the animals that eat my plants and animals, so I understand.

Rain is rotting my irises.  Darwin at work, even though I don't want that to happen.  

Loren posted about LED lights on a different forum.  I finished my CFL plant light project a couple of weeks ago and have peppers, four o'clocks, figs, and ginger growing under it happily.  The hardest part was choosing the light warmth.  Decided on daylight.  If I read Loren's article sooner, I might have chosen LED in daylight range.  Even so, the plants look pretty happy.

completed project


I planted some peppers in a covered raised bed as an experiment. Plus I needed the room under the lights.

Next: time to start tomato seedlings.

I saw my first mink yesterday! My SIL's dogs cornered it after chasing it out of the chicken house. Nate had lost some chickens and wondered what was getting them. Well, that particular mink won't be feasting anymore on his chickens. He was feisty. I hated to see it killed, however.

2.3" of recent rain has set me back another week in the garden. Boo hoo.

Comment by Brandon on April 4, 2014 at 7:32am

Haha that would be nice, but we only have a lot of lightning/thunder/rain going on right now.

Comment by Randall Smith on April 4, 2014 at 7:29am

Brandon, could you send some "southern warmth" north one state (Ind)? I'm eager to get my garden going.
