This Bud's for You


I am pretty durn excited about the garden. Obsessed is more like it. I walked out to the orchard and was surprised, no dumbfounded to see over 100 robins in the grass. A regular robin convention! The wet field must be full of noisy worms, ripe for the picking. I have never seen so many robins in one spot before.

These fat daffodil buds are finally showing their robustitude. Doubled flowers. I am impressed.



And all around the property I am finding what looked like bunches of chives, but when I pulled one out, it seemed a bit fatter...could it be onions, left over from the previous year?


I replanted this one closer to the house so I could watch its development.

Our Christmas order of plants came in and some of them could go directly into the shade garden, while others have to wait until the sun garden actually has DIRT. In the meantime, let's get them started in pots.

I have a set of 15 Asiatic Lilies and decided to make them a temporary home, and found a bunch of cups for pots.
Potting soil and one bulb each, topped with water and more soil and then outside in this makeshift greenhouse.


Ah Rubbermaid...Note how the sun has caused the moisture to bead up on the lid. Delightful.

Some of my other bare roots could go directly into the dirt and I had one sunny spot prepared for them. It was a hole dug out previously and filled with great soil. The other owners had planted a tree, and then it died (thankfully, it was a weedy tree imho) and then they moved. I got the spot for my Alaska Shasta Daisies, and Lupines: Miss Chatelaine.
It doesn't look like much right now, but
just you wait. I am not posting the six or so other pictures of dirt with markers...I worked hard on them too, but how interesting is dirt? Hey, when you have mostly red clay to work with, real dirt is HEAVENLY.

My indoor nursery is coming along nicely.


We had the shoplight in the garage and I bought some growlights to rig up this system. The iron supports are from a garage sale. I can't believe we actually moved them from IL.

And at the end of the day, a hot soaking tub, a magazine and a cold glass of white. Priceless.

  1. I'm getting vicarious gardening thrills. That looks like a white radish. My German grandmother would make sandwiches-brown grainy bread with sweet butter and these spicy babies. Yum!
    Nice tubby, where's your duckie?

  2. Melody, I couldn't see the leaves, but could the 'onion' be a 'ramp' - a wild leek?

  5. Watching your discoveries in the garden is a delight. So many plants grow here in Tennessee Wild onions literally grow like weeds everywhere. When they're young, I've used them in cooking and salads like chives. That is if I know for sure that my dogs haven't peed on them.

  6. I agree with the wild onions, as I lived in Cincinnati for 20 years. The fresh-cut grass would smell like a salad instead!

  7. The garden prep is fun to see, but at the moment, I am drooling over your tub.
