garden update... [Nov. 6th, 2010|05:01 pm]
Verminius Rex
While the kids were playing out back I did some garden work. Pulled a few more dead plants, tossed some more compost on top of the beds, got rid of just about all the container garden stuff. I only have a few walking stick kale plants left, and some random onions that didn't come up until now.

I also cleaned out one of the smaller beds, and found two walking onions sprouting. I thought they'd all rotted in the ground due to a week of rain after planting. So I topped that bed with compost also, and will put some garlic cloves in. My dream is to have a perpetual source of green onions and garlic, self replicating and all I have to do is make sure they don't escape the bed. 

My MIL came by for lunch and to see the downstairs. We were treated to Freddie's and got to show off the entertainment system and the craft room. 

Today's conversation touched on casseroles, so Marz is making one for me. It may very well be the first casserole I've had in years.

You might know this already, but garlic needs to be harvested and replanted each year or it will go wild and not grow like you think it will.
