Welcome to gardeners, growers of veggies, fruits, flowers, and trees!
Welcome backyard hen enthusiasts, worm farmers, beekeepers & composters!
The rain makes pulling weeds easier ... and our area lakes are once again filling to capacity. A few days of sunshine should bring on more fruiting in my garden. :)
Daniel, Ning's bee meadow of last year is the inspiration for mine. With all the rain, I have plenty of plants just no blossoms yet.
Grow 6,000 pounds of food on 1/10 of an acre per year, in Los Angeles.
Most of us can't even think about that due to widely different climate. But it's interesting to think about it.
Barbara, glad you are getting lots of rain. It's about time!
Randy, no woe! You have a beautiful place! I hope your persimmons are getting ready to bloom. Mine smallest ones have flower buds, but at this stage of growth, I expect the flowers to fall off. The Yates American Persimmon is only in its first year, and the Nikita Gift American-Asian hybrid is about 3 years old, but only 4 foot tall.
Daniel, persimmon blooms come late. But I do have apricots! I sprayed them--hoping to keep them worm free. And I have almonds, but no nectarines. Ah, the whims of nature.
My garden mole is driving me crazy! I've caught 3 in the act, but there are at least 2 more pillaging the underground. Must have been a family at one time. And my $20 trap has yet to earn a penny. I just use the old fashion shovel.
Oh yes, and I received a perfect inch of rain two days ago in an isolated T-storm that missed just about everybody else. My godless garden says HA!
