    What did you do in the garden today?

    31F today with light snow, 39F and clear tomorrow and 57F and clear Sunday. That means I will be working in the garden on Sunday only. I need to get the last two fence posts in the ground if I can, build the garden gates, and brush some wood sealer on the entire new fence and gates.

    What did you do in the garden today?

    Interesting. That means I can propagate further once I establish the plants from the slips. That's pretty cool.

    What did you do in the garden today?

    I checked my sweet potatoes, which have been soaking in water for nearly two weeks. 5 of the 6 halves have white hairlike roots under the water. 3 of them are just beginning to grow a few sprouts in the form of small purples nubs. It's these sprouts that I expect to grow into slips that I can...

    I saw this on the Metra today and needed to share. It's an ad banner for Baird & Warner realtors. I couldn't get the best photo, but it says, "3BR/2BA... natural light... chicken coop. (We get you.)"

    What did you do in the garden today?

    Not planting potatoes in there ground yet, but I had a thought. I get more plants by cutting the seed potatoes... Now I didn't cut then last year and we had a good harvest, but we are planning on a lot more plants this year - 55 potato plants actually. Does cutting seed potatoes affect the...

    Hey Grandpa, What's for Supper? Part 2

    Salad again yesterday... I am planning my garden and I really need to drop a few pounds before we pull patties and sweet potatoes out of the ground this summer. I will definitely be carb loading then.

    What did you do in the garden today?

    I thought I was going big. How big is your garden plot? I could fill an acre garden with all that.

    How long to wait for eggs?

    Go to day 21 to be certain. Try whistling near there incubator. The chicks may react by moving around and rocking their eggs or even chirping from inside the egg.

    The Easter Bunny is Really a Duck

    My ducks are laying eggs all over the lawn. My wife looked out there window this morning and said, "When I go out there I am going to have an egg hunt." There looked to be the eggs in the lawn, each in a different spot. We have the female Rouen ducks who lay anywhere they choose. I believe one...

    What did you do in the garden today?

    I am going into another freeze. I'm happy I get the garden fence done for the most part while the weather was bearable. We'r ate expecting snow today. It will likely be several inches over the next 36 hours. I heard on the radio last night that there's 10-13 inches possible within 10 miles of...
