Is a perenial a glorified weed.

At least you can throw a weed out.. A perennial you have to transplant. It's fine with me now that I still have lots of cracks in the shield of our rock island to fill. But there will come a time…Continue

- I did not know that lettuce was a perennial. I found some under a pile of branches/compost and planted them in a shady rock bed. I hope it's Lettuce.. We've been eating it since the spring.

- I keep finding peach pits in my earth. I wonder why none ever germinate.

- I planted a bean seed I found. It does not want to stop growing. My sticks are no longer long enough. It's got beautiful orange flowers.

A greenhouse, that's great ! You're mostly a veggie gardener? How many types and when can you plant? Must be a longer winter then here in NJ !

Elizabeth, your gardens look great! My goodness; you do have to work extra hard...the rocks around your vegetable and flower gardens look wonderful. You have a real knack....

If it's not lettuce, it must be something edible or someone would have been sick by now.
I find peach pits too, and have wondered the same thing-why don't they germinate. Maybe it's too cold up here.
Don't know what kind of bean that is, that has orange flowers. Let us know when you find out, will you.

I'm afraid it's not just one or two squirrils, we have tons of them here , they live here and have babies somewhere close too and we also see them in winter. We have little city gardens and many of us have fruit trees which feed squirrils, raccoons and skunks. At night you see them coming, crossing the street from where the park is and they come raid our backyards. Tonight we heard two raccoons fighting like mad, they were up a neighbours evergreen tree and we could see the tree shaking on the very top and them screaching. We can't take our garbage out till the morning because they remove the lids and bunji cords, they are very clever, hunger drives them I guess.

About Me:
In seeking to be more and more like Christ and by the grace of God our family is most convivial. I am honored to be a step mom and wife for the last 4 years. The type of work we do allows my husband and I the chance to spend about 4 days a week on our Georgian Bay island. We've been renovating since last August. Every weekend we fill our Ford Expedition Max with building and gardening supplies. I've been seeding my plants in my living room in march for two years now. When it's time to put them in the ground I bring them up by car and boat. I got my green house the second year just before we moved on the Island. I don't have the perfect set up yet. Watering is still a problem. By next year it should be a breeze. But then that just means I can plant my vineyard and set up some bees, goats, chicken.... We went solar two weeks ago. The dream is a reality.

Where should these go?

Today I bout about 55 new plants from 6 different nurseries. Interestingly enough each had it's gem.

1- Vaccinium corymbosum:

The Duke may bloom later than other cultivars… but it ripens much earlier! Will produce such an ample amount of berries, you won’t believe your eyes. And because they grow in open clusters, you’ll be able to harvest with ease. Gorgeous bronze fall color adds to the Duke’s ornamental qualities. Cold hardy and resistant top frost damage, this…
