Onions and potatoes in!


That was the first bit of tomatoes, I'll post a photo of my tomato FOREST tomorrow... My tomatoes are splitting left and right and aren't as yummy as last years drought ones. (But I'll take the rain!) I pulled my onions to let their roots cure, it rained and got them muddy! DOH! Slow me should have known better and put them in the barn... All's good though, they dried up nicely in the house, thank Heavens!

ETA: These are the best potatoes I've ever eaten! So silky, yummy, won't last long... wish I had planted 10X's more!

Well, the squirrels got all my plums and my peaches. Grrr. And the deer ate half of my pole beans. And something got most of my concord grapes too. Not a good year here. I do have a ton of tomatoes and a very large pot of lemongrass (that I don't know how to use but it smells heavenly). Waiting on my scuppernongs to come ripe, hopefully I can get enough from them to make jam this year. I had a dream last night about finding muscadines as big as my palm, wouldn't that be something?

The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago, the second best time is today.

Mine didn't split so bad, but a whole lot were rotting right on the vine.

Okay, hoping you guys can help me out. I took a day trip to the beach the other day, and ran across this plant. I want to get one, but I don't know what its called.

Apache, I beleive those are Crotons(sp?). Wherr I live they are only houseplants. They are tropical so of you have winters that dont go below 45 they should survive outside, otherwise bring them in.

Thank you so much! That looks like exactly what it was. I will have to see about getting one! I would have to bring it in for maybe 2 months out of the year. Our winters aren't particularly harsh in central NC, but it does get below freezing at night in Dec and Jan. I am a bit surprised they were using them for landscaping along the boardwalk at Myrtle Beach, their winters are pretty much the same as ours. They quite regularly get temps in the 30's.

Cities usually have a larger disposable income for annual landscaping than most of us.... One of my local towns spends huge $$$ at a local greenhouse on their HUGE annual hanging baskets and line the entire old town mainstreet with them. Those baskets are massive and over $60@. Its a pretty small town too.
