Well I've certainly gotten behind! lol
I luv rhubarb pie!
Me too! Strawberry rhubarb is my favorite version. My favorite pie overall is cherry pie, made with tart cherries. A tree that is very good locally is the Evan's Cherry, and the pies you can make with those re AMAZING.
Does any one near you plant corn?
I've tried it, but it only got about 3 feet tall, then made the tiniest most useless ears.
However, the person who is my garden neighbor has corn that's as tall as I am (5'10) and seems to be doing great! I have no idea how she does it, everyone else who's planted corn this year has stalks a foot or more shorter than hers.
Gotta go water my mushrooms. .
My goodness! We've got mushrooms all over the place right now because it's been so wet - rain every night for weeks now. I don't know for sure that they're edible, so I'm not going to chance it though.
I'd love to see a picture of how yours are coming along.
Do you have to use fertilizer or bagged soil to grow decent veggies, etc?
I've gotten lucky the past two years and have been able to get organic composted manure in big loads for my garden. If I didn't have that I don't know what I'd do, because our community garden is strictly organic only!
My tomatoes are just coming up now. I've had a few cherry tomatoes, and there's some good fat big ones on my other vines, I'll take pictures and post sometime this week.
think so long as your patch is well tilled and the roots can grow your plants will manage.
I've had good luck with mulching before the last snow - then the soil is still fluffy and easy to work with no digging in the spring. I'm trying to get to a no-dig garden method, but I've got too much quack grass I need to get a handle on first.
Hopefully with diligent mulching, and digging it out each spring and fall, I'll be able to get on top of it. I have a lot less on the plot that I've had for 3 years than the one I just took over, so at least I'm making a dent! lol
