I like eating them. I am getting hungry reading your post! As far as pansies waving in the breeze, well I've never tried them.
Happy gardening. Let me know if you need help disposing ov the veggies :-)
MMMMMMMMMMMMMMmmmmmmmmmmm garlic I never ever ever even thought of growing garlic that is amazing! My God if i did that people would hate me so much I'd never stop with the stuff!!!!!!!
I think I'll roast some garlic!
Do you have any chickens,nothn like your own organic eggs.
Garlic is easy!! I buy whole ones at the grocery and split them then plant, pointy side up. Any small space that is not clay in your flower bed, plant in November.
Rock...........My chickens are finally laying eggs after the super cold winter. My eggs are brown and some are a pretty blue green
Have you been feeding your chicks blue green algae? :)
no but they eat algae from my koi pond LOL. They are a certain breed of chicken called the Easter Egger chicken or the Aracona.
Nice birds,i was googling them.They produce the best eggs it seems.
Are the yolks on these light green eggs a rich dark yellow? When I lived in northern Alberta, Canada I worked in a health food store (do they still call them that?) that was supplied with free range eggs and they were light green shells and rich yellow yolks. Yummy eating.
"Nice birds, i was googling them"
Hey,why was the my last post removed,i was only joking around,my God...lets not take it so serious ;)
I don't see any missing, from the ones I read earlier. Sure it's this thread?
Deep yummy yellow, free range & organicaly fed
Eggs are the best quailty protien on the planet earth,its the golden standard which all other protien are evaluated on
my husband is fond of tell the story of the day I gave CPR and mouth to mouth to my favorite rooster....rolleyes....don't ask...giggle...
OMG, I loved my chickens...takes me back...the only prob was I loved em too much...wheneevr my goats or chickens had babies I couldnt even sell them (because I knew folks might eat them... they were my babies....when it got to 100 birds I finally stopped naming them all....but when a dog bit Elmo's throat...OMG....
I know some folks think birds are just birdbrains, but I had some that had very unique personalities and behovioral quirks....they were real individuals.....maybe like people....some are smart, some aren't.
the eggs were great though,,,it's hard to get good eggs anymore...each one had twice the flavor and color of store bought...
Garlic.....I'm growing more elephant garlic these days...it's easier to grow, and easier to chop, being bigger....milder flavor so you need more, but simpler when cooking because you don't have to fine mince it...great in sauces.
are you guys playing farmville?
absolutely...who says we can't have some down home fun...
anybody got a good "still" story???
Oh lucky you! I suck at veggie gardens! I would LOVE to grow garlic, I eat a ridiculous amount!
My sister loved birds, always had them. And I'm with you on I can't ever get rid of any critter unless it's going to a good home for a PET! Killed me when my dad had a couple cows I raised butchered. I wouldn't eat ANY of it! We fought over that, and only thing we fought over!
They gave up and I ate the broccoli, lol.
Is it organic growing? I just bought a house and will be trying a garden next spring (to late in Fl, may try a few things) but you can give me tips next yr.
I love a garden thread! Especially this year. Last spring I was very sick on TX and as the months go by I'm reminded that this time last year I was a wreck. No excuses after Sept. 1, 2009 when I had my 12 week post-TX visit.
I live in the deep south and have peaches the size of golf balls; figs, too. Eating the first of the strawberries, grapes are blooming. Have harvested the last of the lettuce and yellow squash seeds have just sprouted. GSDgirl, I'd love to have araucanas (sp?) but too many dogs in my town neighborhood. Still, it's going to be a whale of a different season from last year! Can't wait!
Yay...a garden thread!!
I am jealous of the garlic. Roasted is my weakness. Will have to add that to the mix next year.
Tomatoes are coming along nicely, towering over my eggplant. But something ate all the blooms off my lemon tree...now I worry it won't bloom. I'm betting it's a big huge grasshopper...arg!
well we just ate our first big plates of steamed edible pod peas...yum yum yum....
at little fresh thyme and chopped oregono, a smidge of butter...and OMG.
Merrybe's cure for HCV...
1. plant at least 20 flowers a week...
2...cut bunches of them and fill up all your vases so it feels like some young goofy guy is courting you!!
3..Talk to your veggies every day...Mike Myers style....GET in my tummy!!!!
If only I had the energy to do that... I miss getting my fingernails full of dirt.
Im going to grow some good herbs on my balcony this summer.
Careful on your reference to " young goofy guy is courting you!! ". Our forum friend could be all over you in the skae of a brusseel sprout. But to tell you a secret, our Goofy much prefers eggplant. If it's jewel-encrusted, all the better.
