What did you do today In YOur garden ..Tells us.
April 16, I cant do a thing out there in the garden today.
Weather is too cold yet.
But I did give my SUV a bath.
Messed up the cell phone . I was speaking Spanish not English.
I had to go to Verizon to get it back to English.........free. He said sometime they do that.
The cells.

I have cleaned out the flower beds. Planted a Mock Orange bush, and got some new white Lilys for the bed planted outside, an some Elepahnt ear bulbs I planted. Hardy ones.

Inside I have many seedlings. TOmatoes, an all sorts of flowers.
Zinnias , marigolds, assylums, daisys, an many more.
Its easier on the wallet that way........I started them all from seeds, from friendly seedy persons.
My geranium I wintered over , has one pretty bloom.
2 inside begonias are in bloom.
Easter cactus is full of buds.
Ok is this enough for one day??
LOL

Lucky you....I have been just shoveling snow onto the few bare patches I have to help it melt faster lol

I have been 'cold readying' some apple seeds that need to be planted soon and I will start some seeds this week coming for transplanting.

It has poured rain for over a week here so I've only been able to a tiny bit in the yard. I do have tomatoes planted in the pretend greenhouse and the squash bales ready for whenever I get the squash seeds planted and ready to transplant. I've put out all my flower seeds and have planted the shamrock bulbs you sent me, dodge. That's about it.

we had a lot of rain here this weekend...Sad part about that is that my back yard is so low that even if it just rains a bit I cannot get into my yard to clean & garden. As it is now, there re a LOT of water puddles in my back yard. rolz

I do have some raised pots to garden in a bit, so I will begin there this week. Then if/when it stops raining so much hopefully I can get to my flower beds to clean them up for spring & summer & then plant the rest of my veggie garden & put the annuals in my flower beds.

I'm jealous.

I did take apart a large wooden crate yesterday(it is what our snow blower was shipped in) to use the pieces later to make a raised bed for grandgirl. Free lumber is always a great deal.

I hung out the laundry then visited with sis in town.
Sprinkled all afternoon an evening it was a tornado watch till 10:00
I pretty much stayed inside an transplanted seedlings for further exposure outside on the porch when weather permits.
Tomatoes are going nuts so far..
One more month an out they go.
I am loving it.

I was going to stain the neighbors fence (the side that faces my house), but evidently the good weather of the last few days decided to subside for today (though it's Oregon and we're well used to that around these parts).

When they built the fence, several years ago, they asked us not to stain it as they where going to do it and didn't want my stain to bleed through; but after two years and with the neighbor's family getting ready to sell their house, I'll let the new home owners not be the ones comfortable with my stain choice as the fence looks like crap at this point...

STRANGE you should mention that about Oregon.
I was talking to a lady who bought a place in Oregan, she is from Houston. She said it rains an awful lot there.
So I know what you mean.
Sometimes neighbors are strange in boundaries.
My land borders one who is a stay inside person an she wont do a think about the boundrys .
An the other neighbor dumps her trash from the yard, into that spot.
Or she throws limbs an trash into the twp ditch an then calls them to clean it out.
What a yo yo.

She is a yoyo dodge. :)

I guess when there is gallons of rain the carrots come up quicker so sometimes good comes from things.

Could fool me. She is a rich widow an has no consideration for anyone else. Not only that, she is a former NUN..........yep, broke up a marriage an paid his divorce to get her man.
Hows that sound????????
However her place is immaculate inside an out......She has the $ to do it .......

I'd put the trash back in her yard...mind you I'm the kind of person who brought back a bucket of dog doo to the neighbor's it belonged to. lol

I think painting the fence before the newbies move in is a great idea Gremelin.

I did that to her late husband....He tossed tomatos into my drive.. When he left for the day, I tossed them back in his yard.........Last time he did that.

Well the trash his wife is doing, isn't on my land she is putting it on the next door neighbors land..........(Which ends at the end of my drive........I cant say a thing of that, not mine. However she doesn't get along with that lady, she got booted out of her house. She was coming in everyday........The twp does know cause I told them about it.. She is always complaining to them an they just play her game.......... Very saintly of her.

Well, a state this green needs lots of watering ;)... The whole Pacific NW is pretty much like this.

Yeah, three of my neighbors (left, right, and back right) decided that the property line is a sugguestion... The one to the left put up a temporary fence on my side of the yard around my plants that are a foot on my side of the property line. The one to the right put up the new fence, and it's on my side of the line by at least half a foot (I have a play structure up and the kids now cannot climb up the stairs to get to the monkey bars), but the guy in the white house behind me moved the fence a foot closer to his property because his line isn't straight and he wanted a straight fence.

Ditto on putting stuff back in her yard; it's not your responsibility to clean others messes...

Thanks, I bought a super thick/solid stain, it should make the fence pretty without it bleeding through too much, and since the fence now looks like crap it's not like a non-solid would work too well to make it look good as it's just semi greyed boards.

Ya know, James, I think if it were me, I would first make doubly sure of my boundaries & then notify the neighbors (in writing) that they had "mistakenly" put their fences on your property. Then tell them that either they can move the fences or you will be happy do it for them.

As for me, I just finished planting some onions, spinach & mesclun mix. My yard is so low that I have to resort to planters & hug pots...But I am ok with that. By the time we are past my frost date, I will be able to plant my tomato plants & such.

I haven't really done much outside this year yet; I have one of those steel frame pools to put up at some point, but we did clean off the concrete patio a couple of weeks ago and put up the new gazebo (the last one was destroyed by an early wind storm in October).

James, That is a VERY nice patio. I see lots of summer enjoyment coming your family's way. That is great.

Barb, snow ??? OH MY Gracious....SMH...I am so very sorry.
Just keep thinking of spring/summer I guess. I will come soon, I am sure.

Thanks; it's a lot better than the hill that was there before, lol... The steep hill on the street over is what I tell people to reference when they see the yard; it's so much better being functional, lol.

Our neighbor on the right graveled part of our land as his driveway. He mows a wide stripe down the side of it which is on our land too. So far it hasn't been a problem.

Looks great James.

if I were you, I would go and talk to the people...just an FYI sorta conversation.

Sounds to me as if they think that piece of land is theirs. That could be a problem down the road if they do not know the boundaries.

What I didn't do .........in the garden today.

Went to bath an the tub kept draining the water. Took out the plunger an lever an try to figure it out.. No dice

So I got online to see what was involved in putting in a new lever an plunger.. Sure enough utube showed me.
I went to Home depot an got a package , came home an installed it .. Didn't work.
After 3 trys I called son to come by.. he said later today after a party. ok
Went back up an got a rubber hose from the shower an put it down the hole where the plunger went. Blew thru it several times a seen some like styro foam come to the drain.
Then I put the old one back on, an presto it worked.
Called son an said I don't need you........He was glad, said I was my own plumber today. angdev LOL

Eek what next? Your never see all these problems unless your a widow. yikes

Junie, Johnny has talked to the neighbors and we have the paperwork to prove it but they haven't redone their driveway and it's not close to our yard so it's not a problem so far.

Good for you dodge. Self sufficient. I am not good at fixing stuff.

Too wet to do anything in the garden.

That is good to know, Sheri. I am glad to hear it.

It is too wet here as well, and it is too low as I have said. BUT today I went out & pulled some volunteer miniature butterfly bushes out of the area & weeded some. Yes it was sad, but I had nowhere to replant the volunteers

This evening, I cleaned out & cleaned off my big flower bed. I was out there 2 hours. It had been taken over by this spring weed. Rod says that it will be gone by summer. I have never heard of such as that, but hey...time will tell I guess. Whatever it is, a lot of the roots stay in the dirt when you pull this stuff out. I was NOT a happy camper. Rodney came out of the garage 2 different times to check on me. The second time is when he said that it would be gone by summer.

Next up to clean off is my garden...It had better not have that weed in it.. tapfoot

Rod just called it a spring weed. I am sure it has a name...I just do not know what it is nor do I have the inclination to look it up. Yes, I use round-up. But since I have ripped out all of the weeds, I do not think that round-up will help me by being on the roots.

I do intend to use it in my rocked area.

Really there my rocks need to be taken up, new landscaping paper needs to be put down & my rocks re added. That will not happen. Thing is there never was any grass or weeds under this area. when they built the house they just threw the clay from the basement next to the house like they do. One would like to think that I would not have this problem. But I sure do. So the round-up will get used there.

Since he is so sure that they will not be a problem in my flower bed, I am just going to add more dirt there & then see what grows thru. if something does, I will pull it as it comes up.

Good morning.
There is really no point in my going to bed.


no we do not, have such men that I know of anyway. I guess I could hire a landscaper. (not gonna happen)

I told Rod if he sprayed for weeds he would have no grass in his yard.
he counters with he could get some broadleaf weed killer..
he missed my point--there is so much of that weed, clover and dandelions that there is not much grass at all. We used to have a beautiful yard. Then Rod decided to stop fertilizing the grass. since then, it has gone down hill fast.

I was thinking, I guess you are going to have to make replants. can you cut the ends off & replant them, or maybe just trim back the bush & see if it comes back out ???

I really know nothing of forsythia.
