last few weeks re-cap
fruit trees were attacked by aphids
got most veg plant in, okra, tomato, cukes
sunflowers and leonotis also
few days ago, planted beans
a few of about 5 types of bush beans
new to me: fava beans
did throw in some yard longs
the are all germinating now
today i spent all day reclaiming the back part behind the shed
what a mess!
got my Schisandra chinensis plants from Oikos Tree Crops, they look great!
potted them up for later planting
plan is to have them grow in an arch over the back behind the shed and make a nice place for culinary mushrooms and Ramps and maybe ostrich (fiddlehead) ferns.
Why don't i take before and after pics?
To reclaim this back portion behind the shed i had to totally harvest the rhubarb. it had at least 3 nodes. i cleaned, stringed and sliced 5 gallons of rhubarb today. not sure what i'm going to do with it all. if i have the time- i WILL process it into canned filling for pie. if not, i will foist it upon all within reasonable distance.
