Re: ORCHIDS Anyone?

@bjbebs , I remember Orchids by Hausermann! I used to pore over their catalog and dream of visiting them. Their phaleonopsis work was amazing and got us all the lovely yellow, peach and spotted flowers.
Lucky you!

Re: The Dawg Patch

I’m betting you’ll have success with your dig and drop composting experiment. I’ve done this in the orchard area and noticed a definite increase in worm presence afterwards. Have not had critter digging. Whether dig and drop or worm bin composting the 2 things that take the longest to decompose are ...

Re: The Dawg Patch

Lucky you! We ended up with only clouds and mist from this system so I’ll have to do some watering today.
Going through seeds also; makes for a nice Sunday interlude.

Re: Whatcha Cooking today?

I made the fresh cranberry sauce last night, and stuffing ready to hit the oven.
Cornbread, celery, onion, walnuts, roasted garlic, a few mushrooms, and the golden beets I didn’t get around to using.

Re: The Dawg Patch

The daikon I grew were pretty thin-skinned so I didn’t peel them. Yours definitely looks a lot more robust. And yes, they reminded me very much of turnips. In fact I was thinking of ordering turnip seed but now I’ll just use the daikon. It’s been cool and drizzly for a couple of days but we aren’t s...

Re: North Florida Gardening

Thanks @karstopography!
I’m really excited about the off-season this year and glad to hear about some success with artichokes outside California.
Another one of the “love to eat/expensive to buy” decisions that often shape my seed purchases.

Be sure to update us on your cardoons!

Re: North Florida Gardening

The artichoke experiment, one of the 4 bags of favas, purple broccoli and fennel. I started so many marigolds I’ve had to stuff them into almost every container. 7D4DD66A-0B88-4A07-B05E-836D88EEF7E9.jpeg 2CFF6CC9-6F80-495D-A0E1-85229E0CE80B.jpeg 56AD2B7C-3B89-4721-9876-CB2FF7A1DB4B.jpeg 43F21DEA-7B5...

Re: The Dawg Patch

I hope you like Maglia Rosa. It was one of the stars in my garden this season and I plan to put 2 plants in next year.
I’ve tried rooting sage cuttings in water without much luck. I’ll try your mini-greenhouse soda bottle next time.

Re: Insanely Cool Radicchio and Chicory

I started 5 seeds each of the new Radicchio varieties and am so excited to see what happens.
If I can find a few spare inches after the onions go in I’ll start some of the curly endive too.
