Plant Swap this Saturday :D September 19, 2012
YAY!!!! This Saturday 9-22-12 will be my first plant swap ever. Here is the link for anyone interested: http://www.charlestongrit.com/plant-swap I have a couple of house plants that I rescued from an overgrown funeral basket and I do not want them. I just could not let them die after they had endured 6 months of living on top of someone’s toilet tank in a bathroom with no window. Most of the plants were too far gone but I saved several clumps of small peace lilies and some ivy. I might take some of my baby rhubarb since it is doing so well and I do not need it all or even have room for it all as it gets larger. I think I managed to drown most of the savory seedlings unfortunately. There are just a few hanging on now 😦 I am trying to think of what else I might have to trade but I didn’t know such a thing existed until a week or so ago and I just discovered this one today.
Rhubarb and winter savory already germinating September 15, 2012
I just started them on 9-11-12 and did not expect to see anything yet. I had them on the dresser in my bedroom but since they are sprouting I brought them out to the porch. I will probably put their lid on them at night until they get too tall for it. These are from the permaculture collection I bought from Bountiful Gardens.
Mums and wildflower seeds September 11, 2012
I cut down the small trees and weeds next to a pecan tree along side the ditch a couple weeks ago. Sunday I put down a thick layer of newspaper, followed by a bag of chopped oak leaves, grass clippings and sandy soil (from the local dump), a bag of topsoil, 2 bags of composted cow manure, and finally cypress mulch after putting the mums in place and scattering wildflower seeds all about. I also used a partially decomposed log I found nearby for added interest and to help pin the newspaper down. I scattered wildflower seeds all along the ditch where I raked , picked up trash, and burned last month. New ferns are coming up along the ditch naw as well.
