Sharing tips on growing flowers

Onions and leeks are two beneficial crops from the start for a long time. The seeds are started under the lights in January, as they like bright light, and the house is moved to a cool greenhouse until the end of the Persephone season in mid-February. For bulb onions, if you start milking in the…

My pea seeds sharing

I planted the peas in the spring and they grew profusely, the first purple flowers appearing, followed by red pods and green peas. I ate the first few handfuls of seeds from the garden raw. I guess you could say it was an acquired taste – rustic and fresh, but without the bacon grease we…

Farm Tour Sequel

There was a lot of touring of the farm and then we walked back to the house along the base they had dug out of the extra soil, past the vegetable garden, where corn, peas, lettuce, courgettes and other vegetables were growing in neat little boxes framed with old metal. We returned past the house,…

Beautiful farm

My farm daily sharing

It’s been hot, but until recently it looked nice and lush. But the heat and drought are not serious problems; the problem is. The caterpillars are loving it. The bay mussels we like to fly around the garden find the plant and lay their eggs. These spiny orange larvae look hateful, but as long as…

A friend’s farm experience

My friend Dan then explained how they manage their grass to create space for wildflowers to grow. Their biggest ally is the baby rhinoceros, a semi-parasite that needs grass to grow. After seeding, the rhinos are few in number, but once the rattlesnake population increases, the grass is greatly weakened and dies. With nothing to…
