Spring is almost here and the chicks are in!!! Yay!!!! Today, I went to the Tractor Supply store in Port Orchard, Washington and picked up 8 ISA Brown pullets.
If you have friends with gardens, chances are that you also have friends with chickens ... or you may have them yourself! Show them off on this website!
Share with other gardeners, and maintain photo galleries to share with your friends. Learn from others in habitat zones similar to your own.
Today I hitched up the trailer and brought home three-and-a-half yards of medium bark mulch.
The gardens are dormant now, but as for me, I'm NEVER dormant!
It used to be that winter, to me, was just something to suffer through - something that had to be endured while the equinox and solstice came and went and the season started ramping up early in the next year.
This is my first year to ever grow Brussels sprouts and I'm going to have a huge harvest! These were started back in April and put out into raised beds in May. Conventional wisdom is that that is a bit early, but this year it just worked out.
Here in the Pacific Northwest, winters aren't nearly as cold as they are in other parts of the country, but rain is constant throughout the season, making condensation a real problem inside beehives.
Here are three different photos of the tomatoes I have brought in on three different days recently.
My tomatoes have been very slow to turn red this season, for some reason. Not sure. There are zillions of green tomatoes out there still. But finally, I harvested enough Roma's to can. :)
This late in September, while there is a nectar dearth shaping up in the Pacific Northwest, I have put out an open feeder for my bees. It's working out really well, so I thought I would share this with you.
This year, I decided to try a different cover crop in the Crop Circle garden.
