The impractical Gardener is now an e-book


The Impractical Gardener©

By Arlene Wright-Correll

e-book $9.95

 

An eclectic mind creates eclectic gardens and eclectic books and this is one of them that run the gamut from how to grow nuts, fruits and vegetables, how to cook them, prune them, what goes with them, such as cheese info, basil recipes, what not to do to them, how to dry flowers and much more.  As I ran through the course of my life I discovered I had really developed some pretty practical tactics and formulas for this “Impractical Gardener”. These even included some tried and true recipes for my harvests.

It was a beautiful day at Home Farm Today

3/18/12

 

It was a beautiful day today and I had a lot to do on the computer so it was about 10:30 am before I got out to the greenhouse where the thermometer said 110 degrees!  I quickly propped open the door and window and gave everything a much needed drink just in the nick of time.

The Stevia is coming up and the cucumbers are really doing their thing and I would put some out but we are still in mid March and who knows whether we will have a frost again.  I guess I will wait another 2 weeks.

 

I cleaned out some more containers today and I planted some more bulbs. I planted Mixed Single Freesia and De Caen Mixed Anemone and both are mid summer blooming perennials. 

Carl put up 6 hanging planter racks for me in various places in the gardens and Ken brought in the last (hopefully) of the top soil. 

 

We had a lovely shower about 1 pm or so and that was nice for the newly planted containers.

 

The first of the tulips I planted in the old Iris bed are blooming right now.

Another morning at Home Farm

3/17/12

 

It was an overcast day today with rain off and on so I started working at 8 am.  I finished the last little bit of the wild flower garden after putting in 400 pounds of top soil and the rest of the perennial wildflower seeds.  I thinned out the Roma tomatoes, the orange Amana tomatoes and some peppers and have over 40 more pots of plants growing.  I started to move planters and birdbaths outside today and by noon I was pooped.
