    Mahalo @BReeder! I have never heard of the Elmers glue trick- may have to try that on the smaller Ti just for fun! I'll keep you posted on how it works for me :D Thanks!!! If I had grafting tape I would have used that but now I am excited about the glue idea. Tee hee! The big Ti I'll just cut...

    Nice job @igorsMistress ! Congrats on making the home page too! :D I live in a warm climate that has extremes and I can relate to all that you did and I like how you explained it too. When I first started building my warm weather coop a few years back I looked hard for some ideas and plans...

    My chickens are sooo bad! I was working on the railing and the chickens were keeping my feet company like they like to do... silly chickens... when I become aware of this non stop pecking. You know how they can go after things...? I glance down and see them just going after my Ti plant. The...

    I like to graft! I like to air layer too.... but I have not done either in awhile. Kind of tough business in Illinois. I wouldn't take it too personal. ;)

    Aloha Karen! I'm pulling the asparagus because I have so little safe, functioning garden space and the asparagus is only good for a few weeks a few times out of the year. I'm thinking I will pot them up in nice big pots till I can find a better spot for them, they will probably do better...

    Aloha kakahiaka gardeners! Today the sun is burning through our high level clouds and temps are a perfect 75 degrees @9:30am. It is a spectacular day- no complaints. Had mom over for pancakes and eggs and fresh squeezed OJ. I plan to work on the deck a little more in between laundry and the...

    Come (spring and) summer you will love being in Plainfield IL. I will be hot and miserable here, so will my sweet chickens and so will my lovely garden. Please be sure to post photos for me then. I'll be desperate for them I am sure. How is your compost experiment going? And have you decided on...

    Advice on Luffa gourds

    This is kinda of a late response but I think you got some pretty sound advice. I'd cover them and leave them on as long as possible. Your plant looks beautiful. Love the way it looks staked with branches. Nice touch. My Luffa's were tough as nails and lasted years. My plant got attacked by a...

    What did you do in the garden today?

    Agreed! I find the two 1/2 wilds that i have now are so independent and resourceful, can be a bit of a pain and you might as well not have them most of the time- except I love the geezers outta them and their little eggs are good. So taking on a full(???!!! 😵🥴) would be a little crazy. Egg...
