Leanin' on the garden's fence

Page 1 of 2  
Hey, Opa, Mazel tov and welcome back to bare knuckle gardening. Missed you you ol' coot. Christmases and Thanksgivings are getting more crowded at Oma's and Opa's house. Have to grow a couple more spuds and a few more green beans (Schnittbohnen sounds too pretentious;-). More memories have just been cued up for you. Grand parents and grand kids were made for each other. You have a common enemy;-) It's that period in between that people take too seriously.
I'm sure as soon as the "Lovely" gets you harnessed up, you be good for another 100,000 miles. Enjoy the trip.
Haven't quite figured out where you are. Lazy don't cha know. Is you in the drought or in the floods? Mid-west seems kinda scary these days. What happened to normal?
We just leaned into what we call "a heat wave". I figure folks in the mid-west would think of it as nice summer weather. Just shy of 100 F today. Worthless "bird house" gourd is doing about 4"/day and the melons are showing some life. One of the water melons has had flowers for about 2 weeks now (here in region 9, N. Calif.). Had it protected with a small tomato arbor to keep the "Hounds from Hell" from turning it into road kill. The arbor was a might snug coming off and I lost one flower. I was fear full it was going to girdle it's self if I left it on. It was reachin' up and gettin' good Sun but now it can stretch out and explore the top tier (the sunniest tier) of the garden.
I'm trying to grow some pole beans in amongst the corn too but not having much success at it. A little runt of a melon is in there too, in the shadows, and doesn't seem none too happy about it teether. The other melons haven't been overwhelmed yet by the corn and are stating to noticeably grow. You know how it is. You transplant somethin' and then it just sort of sits there for awhile, taking it all in, and then makes its' move.
This is my first year where most of the garden was germinated, chez nous and the first few batches got fried when their germination trays got left out, over night, with their covers on, not to be noticed again until 1 PM. The garden is runnin' just a tad late.
Moved 4 sunflowers into the garden, yesterday, by the front gate, without hardening off. Got two today. (Feel like I'm walkin' around a dark room and finding the furniture with my shins.) Fortunately, we got back-ups. I got the flax and psyillium (of "Growing Grasses" fame) growing in the same area.
The Bitter melons are on board and moving up their trellis. They even have a couple of flowers, so I guess I'd better start looking for recipes.
Over at the snow pea trellis the peas are calling it a season. Not much of a harvest from them. What I got was tasty though. I planted radishes and carrots about 4" out from the line of peas. Again I came a cropper. Small little weasely lookin' radishes and no sign of the carrots. Same thing over in the 'mater patch. I got my line of 'maters. Then there is a line of buschbohnen and between the buschbohnen and the steppin' stones is another line of radishes and carrots, sans carrots and same dinky radishes. Across the steppin' stones, up against the top tier, are the mixed peppers. Most of 'em have a long way to go but just above them, up on the top tier, faced with prunella, facing the the sweet corn, across more steppin' stones, I have a line of jalapenos that is fruitin' already, lord love 'em.
The sweet corn is showing some tassel and I've been tryin' to keep it damp but of course now the county wants to whip water rationing on us. I don't irrigate (drip and hand waterin') so I'm hopin' it will be OK. Across a suddenly, reinvigorated dwarf peach, is a stand of dent corn. I read that if you catch it young, if will make good sweet corn too. I'm not too fussy. I don't really like the candy-sweet sweet corn. Sure is a handsome plant though. Even if I give up on corn, I think I would grow it as an ornamental.
Whoops, gotta go, Charlie. I hear rattling plates calling me "ΰ la table".
Nice to have you back.

Mazel Tov!
Ahhhh....... it's nice to return to ground, both literally and figuratively. Neuester Enkel ist ein Wunder.     
das Leben ist ein Wunder
Schnittbohnen?? Nice parallel......ouch

We are about a hundred miles N of KC proper (run fast and spit hard and you'll water Iowa).....above the floods and in an area that is borderline on moisture....pulled out of drought status this spring, after some local flooding and abnormally high rainfall.
What happened to normal? Do we really want to go there....here? ;-)      Eltern der jungen Mutter reported that on their drive from central AR that the rails were underwater south of KC and nearly upon the roadway. Oma's brother lives in Pittsburg KS and said that they had received 20 inches of rain in 4 days. Southeastern adn east central KS are flooding badly

Yikes, 100 sucks and is not pleasant. We've been around 90 degrees with 70-80% humidity and it is miserable.

It is good that you are doing it from seed to table....
Learn from yer mistakes too, eh?

My snap peas took two plantings to make this year and the results have been miserable, yet enough that grandson one, (and some of the rest of us) have had some good raw snacks. The maters are starting to come in. The White Currants were first, followed by the Stupice, then the Mexican Midgets. The Cherry Romas pu out a few this weekend, grandson one reports they are very good....his favorite. Grandson two says nothing about the subject.

I remember eating young dent corn as a child and it tasted fine then, though I do have to admit to a great fondness for the supersweet crosses now available, no cooking required, if so inclined Corn should be coming in anytime now. No Farmer's market today, as we are celebrating the.......Independence Day.

That is a call that no one wants to miss!

Thanks, and thanks for the yank back.
It was a long couple of days. Tomorrow looks like the release date, and there will be a celebration here. Already have a batch of baked beans done, tater salad is fixing now, I'm going to go out a grab a few cukes by torch and do cukes and onions in vinegar. Planted three trellis varieties.....Japanese Climbing, Suyo Long, and Japanese Long.
Picked a little over a gallon of green beans and we're going to do them sauted with garlic.
Still waiting on the Miniature White Cukes(had them last year, small, white and delicious) and the True Lemon Cukes. I planted late.
There is a corned beef simmering for Ruebens and leftover pulled pork and smoked brisket.
Fresh radishes, white varieties, White Icicle and Philadelpia White Box (the heat has them being a little hot, but what the hey).
Grilled green peppers and grilled zukes, which by the way started happening after I gave them a "hand".
Great news also. Had six mason bees working the Bee Balm today, along with one Honey Bee and three Sweat Bees on the Dill.
It's going to be a great feast and welcome home for the Newest Clan Member. Wish you and yours could join us in fact, please be there in spirit.
You are a good man, Billy Rose, and I count myself fortunate to call you friend. I've a lot to do before I die and Lovey-poo and I have purposed to clean up our health act......we are needed more than ever.
When Little Miss arrives around Punkin Day, even more so.
Sorry for any incoherency, it's been a long day and I am a bit (or more) hammered. I also had forgotten that sleep deprivation has a way of allowing one to see things a bit differently than normal. Time in hospital was productive, in that way. " I'm gettin' my head right, boss! " (Luke)
Thanks for.......and I'll leave us with a bit of wisdom from Nelson Mandela that has been running around in my mind the last few days.
Care Opa Charlie......again and yet to be

Thanks to both of you, Billy and Charlie for writing a wonderful rambling and informative garden fence chat. I've missed those! Not knowing either of you doesn't matter........I can see and hear the goings on with the two of you. Reminded me of why I write and question why I haven't written lately despite the bad luck and personal problems and health issues.........soooooo, if you don't mind me leaning over the fence and chatting with the two of youse, I'd be honored.
Garden note from Southeastern Tennessee and Faerie Holler is we're in a dangerous drought and sparse spits of rain are just teasers. My raised beds are hunkered down and miserable and I only water the container gardens as they dry out horribly and plead for me to tip them out and sink them into the ground so that the tightening soils would give the parched overgrown roots relief. I put my "Aunt Ruby's Green" tomato plants out too late.........I'll be lucky to get ANYTHING....I tucked them into the front flower bed as it's the only place to plant things that need full sunshine around Faerie Holler.
On an ornamental note, though.......the beautiful hosta's I purchased last year in the wake of a bit of money and some serious sticky pot syndrome are holding their own underneath the black cherry tree in the before mentioned bed. Go figure. With the issue with my cataracts and then the horrible close up vision, I'm kinda three way blind. But yesterday I noticed that not only were the Japanese beetles not as heavy, but the Blister Beetles WERE awake and voracious and eating the Japanese anemone not only in the eastern Wall bed at the edge of the Not So Secret Garden to bones, but moving into the larger portion of the NSSG......I couldn't see clearly enough to do much good as they were hatched and munched the leaves to bones during the nighttime, and I went immediately to the Western bed and they were hatched and eating the anemone's in THAT bed as well.......the pyrethrum that works is made up, no spray bottle works around this house to kill the survivors, and funds are beyond tight here. (even looked for an old Windex spray bottle...where are these things when one needs them????)
Potted up ALL the daylily rhizomes from weeks past adventure to Mr. Savage's incredible place he named "Dancing Winds" and boy it was about time, too. Cut the leaves back and made up beautiful soils in the large nursery containers I just can't throw away and then icy cold well water afterwards when I placed them around the crowded deck off the kitchen.
Only a couple of frogs in Frog Holler in the BBQ pit fountain/gardens this year due to squire rinsing out the trough completely trying to get all the pumps for the brook and Greek woman with jar fountain piece to work properly. He rinsed out all the eggs that were stuck to the cover of the pump......sigh........only one magnificent ugly brown frog has been spotted and I hope the clawed frog killer, "Piquito" the fuzzy one who should be made into a set of slippers leaves him or her alone so they can make children. I set out the ugliest goldfish this year and kept the beautiful ones inside. They fill my heart with a smile, as do the fornicating guppies of varieties now that amazed me. I'd forgotten the joys of raising guppies......easy to see despite the cataracts, too.
Flowers are cranking out despite the droughts and lack of me helping, but lordy, the vinca cares not a spit about lack of water or too much. It just invades more and more and I fear if I don't get out into the blasting heat and yank, I'll lose more than I realize.
thanks for allowing me a lean over the hedge. Sweet iced tea for those who would like it. I also have a bottle of Michigan Sweet cherry wine that could be chilled for someone wanting a bit more than sweet iced tea <gbseg>

Shore, pull up a fence. No scars though, and no pictures of scars. Lord it is a hot one today.
All the melons are up on their toes and lookin' like they're gonna make a break for it. And the "bird house" gourd will be over the top in the next couple of days (7'). Everything else is just sagging in the heat (4 PM: 95 F). I know it's not that hot but we haven't been tempered yet. Few more weeks and this will feel just fine.
Think I'll take a shower and make a run for it to the store. Tabouli, left over chicken salad, lunch meats, cold fruit, and the last of the blueberries with raspberry sherbert for dinner tonight. I'd better put one of them cheap Australian chardonnays in to chill too.
Geronimo,

Let me formally introduce meself, there, William.....I'm an old regular around wreck.gardens. Been here in and out of the patches and weeds now for over eleven years. Came here as madgardener, showed my ignorance and rear end sometimes when I was REALLY green in the netiquette areas and signed off in terseness as "madwoman" until I learned candor and demeanor and manners and now am firmly in the archives as madgardener or "maddie" as I'm wont to sign sometimes. I am rabidly horticultural, with bouts of SPS or sticky pot syndrome and apparently a newer and lesser known affliction that I've had for YEARS now but was unsure as to the identity of....OCTS.....Obsessive Collecting Tendency Syndrome.....I ramble on at the jibs, waxing poetic and frothy mouthed about me faeries and fliers and pollinators and critters that abound here in Faerie Holler (Eastern Tennessee, near and in front of the Great Smoky Mountains). I've contributed and talked to all manner of gentle folk herebouts on this and the UK wrecked gardens newsgroup.
I know the in's and outs of all but the more extensive trees and lawn grasses despite that I am considered a Master Gardener and Master Composter by UT's standards (University of Tennessee based outa Knoxville, Tennessee). I am more hands on learned, self taught and if you were to see me cut upon a bramble, I'd probably not bleed but pour out musical notes and potting soil.............been known to "be able to take a popsicle stick and grow a two by four" but able to kill a healthy and hail African violet with the merest glance.......
No scars nor photo's of scars. I've just had another summer of hell and I deal with it as well as one can. My gardens go on with or without me. The blister beetles I mentioned in the previous response are munching as I write. I can't see to spray their blistery asses into writhing death throes, believe me I would.....I adore my mantis, toads, lizards, and wide assorted fliers, stingers and flutterers that abound with increasing numbers. Some less this year than last, others more so. Those white butterflies which are benefiting from the lack of the evil red wasps with the black wings, yellow jackets and even hornets.
I can say that as of two hours ago, WE GOT A DOWNPOUR!!!!!!!!!!! WOO HOO!!! DESPERATELY in need of moisture. I actually have many DEEP PUDDLES in the driveway! The crickets are singing praises, the frogs and peepers are thrilled and the resident frogs in BBQ Frog Holler Pond/Trough are most likely enjoying the heavy humidity right now and basking in it on the blue clay slabs that I use for bridges and sunning rocks for them. Believe me, I danced for that rain and downpour. Poor Craven Smeagol the cowardly dawg of the canine trilogy herebouts was so taken off guard he didn't have time to throw coat or shiver his hair off and no need of drugs despite all the thunder-boomers that came with the intense storm. the rain was horizontal for 45 minutes blowing sideways.......
My own heat of 97o today was tempered finally by the storms at 6 p.m. EST and it's now down to a cool 72o ahhhhhhhh, almost worth opening a window~ Right now I have parched phlox that were never cut back in the mid spring to ensure doubling and not being so dang tall....daylilies that are pleading for me to either lift them and put them where they can benefit from more sun or have mercy and off them. (I can't off them, I love all flowers, except the hateful Vinca major aka Periwinkle and it's only when it's busy making miles of sinewy vines like now that I despise it....it is intent on reclaiming every square inch of ground I worked years to clean out. I pulled a vine today and it snapped YARDS away and laughed at me...grrrrrr, maybe with the soaking tonight I can get out in the mornings cooler temperatures and the asparagus fork and lift some roots and dig out a few cubic meters of it and toss it into the pasture for the bovine to munch upon. There's a thought! <g> There are over 20 black Angus with a few brown calves thrown in for measure that have cleared the whole fence row next to my side yard and not one bit of Vinca is left!
thanks for hollering back. Always an honor and pleasure to meet another garden fence neighbor. Happy knosching!
maddie enjoying the HUMIDITY!!

I'm the same way maybe worst. I'll make my morning coffee. Place in a bit of sugar and milk and sometimes tilt the cup to be sure I added the sugar. I had some heart surgery about five years ago and was on the pump for seven hours. General rule of thumb is we loose 10 % of our short term memory for every hour on. Currently playing Mahjong every morning in the belief I can get some back. May be fooling myself but it is my nature.
Guess you folks know of The Chieftains Tears Of Stone

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>incredible list below snipped............. well, I love world music. Celtic, Reggae, Folk, Rock,Bluegrass, a little punk, SOME classical, not much into rap, but even some that has good words and a story or more poetry isn't bad, I still have about 2000 of my albums that range in tastes from Allan Parson's Project, Creedence Clearwater, Camel, Zappa (about 24 of those, not all 69) Tangerine Dream, ALL of the Pink Floyd, Jethro Tull, about 9 Beatles, ELO, ELP, Tonto's Expanding Headband.......Johnny Winter, Stevie Ray, Temptations, Aretha, Joni Mitchell, Joan Baez, Dylan, The Band, Grand Funk Railroad, Chicago Transit Athority, Barefoot Jerry,some Allman Brothers, I love Gov't Mule and Warren Haynes, I have all the Celtic Twilight cd's so far (I think there are only six) ALL the Lorenna McKennett including the Live at Alahambra PBS DVD, Loose Connections, Clannad, Altan, Cherish the Ladies, Dougie McClean, Afro Celt, Poozies, Peatbog Faeries, Enter the Haagas, Ashleigh McIssack, a HUGE assortment of compilation cd's (two books of Celtic, two books of compilations, two books of female artists. So far the cd collection is up to 13 books of more than 248 in each zipper book.
I listen to David Dye on World Cafe coming outa Philly on WNCW, Accoustic Cafe' I catch on Sunday mornings, enjoy This American Life and sometimes remember to catch Cartalk when I remember...although I like Bluegrass, eight hours on WNCW is a bit TOO much...but I LOVE Tim O'Brian and Allison Krauss, adored and knew John Hartford and have eight of his vinyl albums some of which the estate hasn't put upon cd yet......all of Cheryll Wheeler's stuff, John Gorka (all his stuff) love Bruce Cockburn, Leonard Cohn, Tom Waits, Ricky Lee Jones, Alanas Morrisette, Paula Cole, Patti Griffith, Susanne Vega, Maria Muldaur (I have lots of vinyl and lots of cd's of hers, as well as most of Bonnie Raitt's, John Prine, B.B. King, Pine Top Perkins, Keb Mo', Muddy Waters, Johnny Lang, Van Morrison the list is endless.........eclectic tastes, yes. Nick Drake, Louden Wainwright and his son, Rufus. Arlo Guthrie, the list is endless. My music collection is amazing but never complete. There's always something else coming out or something that the college kids don't know is good. I happened upon two Steve Hackett cd's I have the albums to for cheap and I snatched them. The remake Beatles cd is a must buy. I adored that it was done. George and John woulda loved it......
Not much for Sir Paul, but Peter Townsend still rocks the house. I also like Zydecoe and Cajun, have lots of Dr. John....I could write the list for hours.....<gbseg> by the way, Bellsouth is about to lower the boom on me and cut off my ISDN line because I was irresponsible for the first time in 36 years and ran up my landline to outlandish proportions, so I will burn you a few cd's and send them your way and you let me know, ok? going in for the second eye Tuesday and won't be able to lift a fart, and they're threatening to shut me off the 9th......sigh.....you'd think an old hippie and all round decent person of 54 would learn.......first time I ever let my mouth get outa hand and couldn't pay the HUGE honking bill.......made my bed hard and now I gotta lie in it. I'll be back though. Just hate it as I just paid the internet, supernews fee, ISDN line fee and renewed the comics on line stuff....crap......

10%/hr??? That is a hell of a hit the meatware takes!!
Damn, I really need to clean up my act, before I join the rest of you old farts in your club.
Wifey-poo plays mahjong frequently, maybe I should start and build up a surplus
Know of the new Chieftain release, and am impressed with the artists performing on this release. Will check it out soon

Carpe serpo, baby, carpe serpo.
Crawlin' around under garages and other places the creepy-crawlies inhabit. Have fun. Should've done this last year, eh?

I have an set of computer speakers set up in the patio/garden area that I plug the mp3 player or cd player into and have whatever moves me that day playing while I work or enjoy the garden. don't know about the whole plants/music thing, but thigs are growing well and looking really good.
We only have the dane and the cat,and both of them wound up in bed with us last night....for just a while...summer sure isn't the time for a three dog night. More like...
Hot town, summer in the city Back of my neck getting dirty and gritty Been down, isn't it a pity Doesn't seem to be a shadow in the city
All around, people looking half dead Walking on the sidewalk, hotter than a match head
Keep a cool one Charlie

Fence time helps with healing, provides a momentary distraction, if nothing else. Holler us up anytime you feel the need.

Might I assume that you are a "fan" of Master Tolkien. My most often read books. Lovers of Gardens, Music, and Tolkien (now there is a proper trilogy).
Not quite so hot here today, only 90 at 1:30, but the humidity is down to a much more bearable 40%. The guessers are callling for some cooler and some rain next week.... we'll see.
Had a fantastic bug day this morning. While watering the pots for the first time today, I counted nearly a dozen mason bees (kinda hard to bee accurate, as they were so darty) on hte Bee Balm. And the swarm of sweat bees has *finally* found the flowering dill, a little belatedly IMO, but here at last. A blue swallowtail spent about a half hour checking out the whole garden and spent some depositing eggs on the dill, glad I planted some extra a couple weeks ago......those beauties will need lots of my dwarf fernleaf.
Several big old dragonflies were hunting over the garden. Won't be long before the zirrie bugs hatch and the cicadia killers keep me on lookout, ready to take cover.
Care Craven Charlie.....when it comes to hornets, yellowjackets, and cicadia killers.

Mind? The honor is ours, as well. Sturdy fence, lots of room. We old folks need a bit o' chat fairly often.
I was wondering about you the other day, regarding your "cataract surgery". My mother had this done June 12 and was up today to see the new baby, her second 'great-grand'. She is getting along pretty well, but hasn't had her glasses changed yet, waiting for the glaucoma to stabilize, as she had a drain hole opened to relieve the pressure in that eye. They'll do the other eye at some future date.
Aren't the Aunt Ruby's 'maters wonderful? We planted them last year and they were one of our favorites, though Lovey had a bit of a disconnect eating a fully ripe green tomato. Beautiful color and flavor. I had some severe germination, and growth, problems this year, that I have laid upon bad germination media, but who knows, maybe it was some planetary alignment thing. At any rate, I wound up without any Aunt Ruby's. Have White Tomasil, and Old German though, along with Brandywine, Stupice, Thessalonika, Rutgers and I forget now what else.
We also have several Cherry Tomatoes......we like them and Grandson One keeps the vines clean early in the season. I have only had one of the White Currants, one Mexican Midget, and one cherry roma.....wont be long though that there will be an abundance. We also have Chadwick Cherry (you no doubt recognize that name). Started growing them back in '98 and have been saving seed and growing yearly since.
Like I said the zukes are coming on like crazy now. My sis-in-law has started hauling them up to us also. She is ready to bean bro-in-law.......he has plenty of room and plants more garden than they or the rest of the family can use and eat. Good thing we like zuke three times a day. Be glad when the okra comes in and we'll be enjoying stewed tomatoes with okra, onions and zuchinni.
Starting to get a bit dry here in northern Mo, nothing serious yet, but we could use some moisture. It is getting dry enough that I've noticed a few of the newly planted trees starting to chase dogs.
Thanks for the background you posted a few articles down. I enjoy your posts. See ya over the fence later, I'm worn out after the day's festivities and all the company. I'll check a few more post, maybe poke Mister Billy a little, if he needs it. Need to finish the cleanup, help some folks to bed, and sit and watch the blinks for a bit.....I'll have a glass of your tea for the wind-down.
Enjoy the cool morning!
Care Charlie
