A Good Soaking Rain





We are having the kind of rain that will really get to the roots. Good thing too, as I have discovered the demise of several plants that could have been saved if they had been watered. O well. We'll start over with new ones.
Before we left Cary I dug up my favorite huge hosta and a few secondary faves, and put them in plastic bags to transplant here.



The Big One is now five small ones


Yesterday at 5pm, I decided it was now or never to get those planted. The rain was predicted and I had a feeling it could be days of wet weather.
I saw on the internet that one can cut off the leaves of these hardy plants with no ill effects (at the end of the season, of course) and so I did. The stalks and roots are much easier to handle and I used a hack saw to divide the different nodes. Dave dug the holes and I shoved the roots into place and watered them well.
Our chickens have decided that the existing hosta on the property were dinner, so the mangled remains were uprooted and transplanted too. If all goes according to plan, there will be a long border of various hosta emerging in the spring.







The chickens are now eating the duck's food. They are getting ready for winter, we think. Yesterday our little red hen laid a huge egg, twice the size of the others. I am having it for breakfast today.

  1. Wow- I didn't know there could be such egg size variance. That's interesting...
    Must feel wonderful to start putting your personality into the place, finally!
    But you have another gig coming up, don't you?
    Well, not today, anyway.

    I wish you good luck with your hostas. When I moved from one house (on Main Street) to another (in the suburbs near a woods) here in Newark, Ohio, I dug up and moved tons of hostas. Guess what? They are deer ambrosia. The deer (here in the town limits) eat them down to within about 6 inches of the ground. I just about cried. Maybe you don't have deer in the "backwoods" because there isn't such a nice smorgasbord as there is in my neighborhood.

    I enjoy reading your blog, despite the grumpy "anon" who complains periodically. You and Dave keep up the great writing!!!

  5. You moved! I haven't checked out your website in a long time. I'm from MN and wrote to you way back about wishing you could come to our quilt show in June. Of course, I have absolutely no clout so I couldn't make it happen by just wishing. Now you are farther away. Boo hoo. I'll be checking your blog now and then.

  6. YEah, our chickens occasionally lay a huge one now and then. Did you know that a chicken lays progessively larger eggs as she ages. When they get too big for her to pass, well, then you end up having roast chicken for supper that week, but a chicken lives and lays lots of good eggs (get it?) for five or six years prior to that.
    Do you sprinkle the chickens' pellets/grain on the ground for them? Sometimes they prefer to peck to eating it out of their feeders. But if they are eating the ducks food out of the feeders, then I don't know what to tell ya'!
    Say hi to Dave for me.
    And congrats on selling the Cary house- I was praying for you- glad it worked out.
