this is the place to share what you grow in the garden. How you grow it. What you do with your harvest.
The best produce is what you grow.I have had a garden for years. So if you grow a garden this is the place for you from old pro to just starting.
Lets talk abought what we grow and how we use what we grow.
the pesky groundhog is back! she ate my first tomato, that was just about ready! i will try sprinkling some red pepper flakes around and move the owl wind chimes to the garden.......if that doesn't deter her. i'll be borrowing KB"s live trap and she'll get to take a nice ride out into the country!
the other one that was almost ripe will finish ripening up on the table....out of her reach!
This is the first year I have grown this variety. It is called Music and it is suppose to be a long storing garlic that is very cold tolerant. It was studied at Michigan State. I am anxious to try it in some of my recipes. It is also a hard neck variety.
The paddle wheeler, the Mississippi Queen, has locked through #18, just south of us. She'll be rolling by heading north to Minneapolis sometime this am. Ellie and I are sitting on the porch, hoping to catch a glimpse of her. I'll know when, because traffic will increase by our house to the river front park.
I checked the price of a ride:from St Louis to Minneapolis is less than $3K....from Minneapolis to NOLA less than $6K........gonna have to buy another lottery ticket. sigh
