I have a huge parsely bed that could die in a day or two, due to frost. What is the best way to keep my parsely for use? I add it to my meals and to my smoothies on a daily basis.

Sorry I don't know much about it but I've taken a snap of a magazine page giving info for this month, but bear in mind I am in the UK.





I don't know if they will come out very clearly. They are from a magazine called Landlove and one of their recommended books is Gardening by the Moon by Nick Kollerstrum. Hope that helps, lol.

Are the planting dates in the Farmer's Almanac by the lunar system? I've always wondered how they came up with those dates for planting/harvesting.

Yep, drilled holes in the bottom! I'm doing the heugelkulture thing, too, with the wood in the bottom. I probably spelled that wrong, but hopefully you know what I mean.

Sheep troughs are brilliant for growing things in but we had to drill drainage holes in ours before we could use them. I'm afraid my twin tub went to the dump. Recycling wasn't so much a thing then although an old friend, when she did her bathroom up, persuaded her husband to sink the bath in the garden and she filled it with flowers. It looked beautiful. I'm sure your troughs will look great Lizandrashaw

years ago,
when we were first married we had a large twin tbbed laundrey tub in out backyard.

I bitterly regret having broken it up in a moment of bad judgement as it was fantastic as a growing pot.

At that stage it had broken brick rubble in the bottom with soil on top.

Cheers

We had 1 of our best seasons this year in Victoria Australia for citrus.
We have collected over 2 laundry baskets of lemons so far.
Whilst we have many cumquats and the like in half barrels at our house our lemon tree is in the ground.

In Australia it is not unusual to fertilise citrus with special citrus fertiliser, manure or men sneak out to "water" them
Cheers

Just noticed this thread. I'm afraid, as we say over here, I know 'hee haw' about growing citrus fruits. The only helpful thing I can suggest, as you appear to be in the northern area, bring them indoors before the first frosts. I would also feed them with a high potash fertiliser to encourage flowering and fruiting. My daughter-in-law has a lemon tree and she brings hers in for the winter. She occasionally has lemons on it too, so as others have suggested, google it and bring it indoors.

BACKTOBASICSTR, I agree. I am always amazed when sprouts first come up and again at harvest time.
My son was telling me today about homing pigeons and their magnetite and even though the polar magnetic shifts they can still find their way and then I mentioned turtles. And he said not only do they also have the magnetite, but they also go according to the moon. Whoa!
God is full of surprises indeed.

I haven't googled it yet....It just seems strange, that they're blooming now....My son(he lives in the south) said, maybe with the cold snap we had a couple of weeks ago, may have triggered the blossoms...The buds are now turning into little oranges now...That's so cool....I love how nature works...

A question for all you gardeners
I bought a lime, lemon and orange tree from walmart...you know...the potted ones...I had them sitting by my porch since early spring...Well...here it is...early fall, and I have buds on all of them!
The orange tree has at least a dozen blossoms (they smell so good) the lemon has several and the lime has also started budding...
How should I care for them at this point?

not in my state, but hunting season starts this month for bow and arrow. We don't need the meat, so the dogs have scared them off. I don't know how far they chased the deer, but I haven't seen them on the property since.

I'm hoping next year's garden is more successful. This year felt like a flop.

is it permitted to kill deer for personal use?
they are starting to become more of a pest in Australia.

The surplus of Basil sounds amazing.
It is so expensive to buy tiny jars of pesto.

Seasonally , tomatos and Basil are a match made in heaven

Yay for spring.

We have tropical storm Harvey headed our wayand expecting some rain for two days.

Deer have been in the front yard daily and for the most part staying out of my garden, because of the fallen fruit from the apple and cherry trees. But I wanted to plant a fall garden soon....but I don't want deer eating all my young growth

Some facebook or online sites have buy/swap/sell or giveaway.
These can sometimes be a source for unwanted windows or doors.
Failing this there are usually wrecking sites that sell second-hand building materials,

This is only half the argument as there would still be a requirement to have an appropriate structure erected

We live in a small gully.
The cold air settles around our house.
Then we get up to 6 frosty mornings each winter
this is when my precious plants keel over

I have had some different chillies survive this
if I could only grow my tree chillis big enough, they may become more frost resistant

If only I had a green-house

We've had a wet May as well. And though there have been a few warmish days, it's back to the 50's. I did manage to get some potatoes planted yesterday between the down pours. I still need to get some seeds planted. Thankfully I have some volunteers that are doing nicely.
Hope everyone has a lovely weekend!

mainly hard-neck flowering garlic
a bit of softneck, long-keeping garlic
a small amount of elephant garlic

elephant garlic can be good in that it can naturalise in a garden bed and the big flower heads can be spectacular
I now have to wait til Spring to plant chives and garlic chives.

It was originally, by growing garlic chives that the black aphid seemed to gain a presence in my garden emoticon

Hopefully the aphids won't find the garlic. If they're spread out and not in the same growing area, plus you have them with companion plants, it sounds like you've done a good job in trying to evade those pesky pests.

What kind of garlic is it you're growing?

I've only grown elephant garlic one time; years ago.

The garlic is currently planted between asparagus and rhubarb plants. and more in pots
Hopefully with being spread out this should lower the prospect of infestation.
I do have a spray-jar of Confidor, but dont wish to use this unless absolutely necessary

Have you tried companion planting to protect your garlic? Do you have it in one area or spread out?

My kale and lettuce are sprouting. I need to get peas in the ground, but it's been raining too much. If I had a rain jacket I'd go in the rain and plant.

This week I planted broccoli, swiss chard, onion and carrot seeds. I can't seed the rest of the garden until mid-May.

I have high hopes for this years garden.

never grew chocolate mint but I do have perennial basil, which behaves like a mint the way it spreads.
My peppermint-scented geranium and newly-acquired pineapple sage are both growing well.
Must get hold of some rose scented and lemon-scented geraniums at some stage.


The geraniums are reasonably hardy in my area

Oh I'm interested to see how they progress as well. I like both. I planted sweet peas last summer, but they didn't grow. I know this happened to me before and they grew the following year. But perhaps my seeds are too old?

Has anyone grown chocolate mint herb?

There are a few jonquils in the back flower garden amongst my daffodils. I was just noticing some new ones with the white and orange in the middle. I prefer the yellow in the middle. Then today I noticed something white that has popped up in the field behind my home and I think it's a daffodil. How did one get way over there?

no, but I have seen many pictures of ruffled, red trumpet and other exotics.
locally here it is more common to have jonqils in our local area.
Cheers

just plain daffodils. But your question has reminded me I picked up some Lily bulbs while I was in town on Monday. Talked with an older man about flowers and that was fun.

Do you have suggestions for exotic daffodils?

I found out the sprouts I noticed by the second garage is in fact daffodils. Then I was surprised by even more daffodils in the flower garden in the back. It would be prettier without all the dead leaves, but I can't rake them yet, as the threat of frost/snow/winter is not over. There are a few daffodils in the front flower bed and some on the other side of the house near the "boat" garage. (I do not have a boat, but it's where the previous owner stored his boat)

There's a tree in the front with white blossoms. I've been told is a fruitless pear tree. Seems kind of strange to call it a pear tree if it doesn't produce pears. lol

Oh yay! a garden shopping spree. Please share pictures if you get the chance.
I wasn't familiar with the schizostylis, so I looked them up and ooh, they're pretty. I really like them.

I was at a garden centre yesterday. What is fatal is taking a trolley round. I bought a rhododendron, white flowers with yellow centres. Also bought some things for my little water features. A water lily (pygmy type with pink flowers), a lobelia cardinalis (dark leaves scarlet flowers), a schizostylus (pink flowers) and and some other things I forget the names of but they'll add some attractive colour to my little bowls.

Fell by the wayside last year but back on track now.

Good luck INNERLOTUS, on all the issues happening all at the same time.

For me, I would tackle the plants that mean the most to me, or that I like the most. Or if you like them all the same, which ones would be the most expensive to replace.

I'd trim up the infected areas and then spray with dish soapy water. If that didn't take care of the nasty buggers, then I'd go the poison route. And repeat with each plant/tree/issue.

Trying to do it all at once can seem overwhelming. And when that happens the gardening becomes a chore and unenjoyable. Take back your joy. emoticon
