Carrots and such
Posted on Jun 2, 2020 10:17 AM

I grew carrots this year .........or should I say am growing carrots
anyway I don't normally grow carrots the seeds take too long to come up and my soil is so fertile a forest of weeds usually crowd out the poor carrot seeds .
.well this year I found a packet of seeds ??? don't know what I was thinking when I purchased them
planted them in an old washtub with really good ''sterile'' dirt

then just yesterday I realized the second reason I don't grow carrots
I am a very bad thinner ....in order for carrots to mature into some eatable size they have to be thinned ....
I have a problem discarding plants
Problem ((Issue)) well a stronger word is needed .................anyway my garden is full of white forks
.........you see I mark seedlings cumming up where they don't belong with white plastic forks , then I dig them and pot them and my garden is full of white forks and my shelves are full of plants with no place to go

I probably need a garden therapist

Sharing disadvantages
Posted on May 23, 2020 9:47 AM

So today I have felt taken advantage of:
I was chased out of MY garden shed by some wasps building nests in the upper loft, while looking for my drying racks .
Found the herb drying racks only to discover what ever spent the winter in the shed used them as a toilet.

...........so no more Mr nice guy .....
.I guess I will have to close up MY shed for a while to keep my guests from becoming permanent squatters.
