Spring is Slow Coming

Bloodroot has flowered, and ramps are poking up, but everything else is slow. I’ve posted plenty of photos of them in the past, so I won’t bother this year. Just google the plant of interest and this blog together, and you can find them. In fact, you can do that for a lot of plants and mushrooms. If there’s something you’d like to see, just ask. I may have photos I never posted. If not, I’ll try to find one this year.

For the 2nd year in a row, March was colder in March than February, creating a delayed spring.  Although I got my lettuce and other greens planted in early March, it’s slow to germinate. Which may mean it bolts sooner when the weather suddenly turns hot.  If there’s no Aug-Sept drought, I do better with a fall garden of greens, but often it’s just too dry for good germination… only so much time and money I’m willing to spend watering, when I can just buy it at the farmers market. That’s one reason I mostly grow things I can’t easily buy, or that are high value. This year, I planted much of my lettuce in containers, and I’ll see if moving them to the north side of the house into the shade helps it last longer.

Renee’s Garden Sent Me a Pack of Tasmanian Chocolate

Maters, that is. I don’t have the ideal land for common garden crops, so I concentrate on difficult to grow herbs and medicinal plants. But I recently acquired some containers that I can put on my ancient unused concrete driveway, which is on the south side of my house. Renee’s Garden is a favorite of mine for high quality vegetable seeds. Flowers too, but I grow very little for decoration. ( https://www.reneesgarden.com/ ).

I haven’t updated this site in about 6 months. I’m going to try to do better this year, but I’ve yet to figure out how to monetize it to cover the costs of my efforts, so it’s dropped to the bottom of my “to do” list. Has anybody got any ideas? Does anybody else want to post stuff other than spam? If you have something worthwhile on the subjects of mushrooms and foraging, recipes, “rotten” food, or Georgia ice cream (grits), feel free.
