The Business of Spring Continues
I picked this many just today. I've ordered 25 more plants. Does anyone know the best way to propagate strawberries? Mounded hills, or rings, how do you keep them suspended off of the dirt enough? Forget about planters I'm trying to develop a real patch. I want jam and pie and an abundance of these little yummers.
It is time to make decisions and place the plants and seeds. I have rhubarb coming.
I don't know anything about growing rhubarb. We tried last year to raise it from seed, no luck. Advice? Also does anyone like to grow eggplant?
Full flush of the rose arbor. It happens only once a year but this New Dawn is a healthy specimen and it has lasted here in the south. The foliage will remain green and it is hardy. The spectacular blooms and fragrance are worth the small window of time we enjoy them.
A bit of indoor rearranging too.
I drug out some old curtains and bedding. They are still pretty to me. Out of my memories I heard my Grandmother say, "it's so nice to see my old familiar things." So many of my belongings were hers. Whenever she came to visit she enjoyed so much the familiarity of not only her possessions, but the passing down of a way of life, creating a legacy.
She left a large imprint on my life a lasting one. I hope I can do the same.
