Expanding a little more -- found a quart container of chives from the old "Rescue Garden," that miraculously survived the fire. I gave Bob a sample to taste and he signed off on it, so I brought it over, cleaned it up, and put it on the kitchen balcony. I trimmed it down and harvested some to put in cottage cheese. Very Happy I also planted the bottom of a sweet onion in another container. I'm starting to feel like a real gardener again. happy turtle

Turkey Day!

Post  countrynaturals on 12/5/2018, 1:19 pm

Woke up to 30+ turkeys in the front yard. They flew up on the garage roof, then across to the house. They came across to the kitchen window, then jumped down -- right over our heads. WOW! I couldn't get a good pic, but this one isn't bad. It was really fun to watch.

That must have been a noisy event!! Thanks for sharing.

You may get an unusual number of critters this winter since so much of the surrounding area was scorched.

You're right -- I didn't think of that. We're happy to feed and shelter all who need it.

The turkeys are huge and not at all bothered by people. One of our 10 lb cats tried to attack one the 50 lb turkeys. The turkey basically laughed at him. Rolling Eyes

Checked on the Salad Bar this morning for the first time in months. Katie has been dumping the rabbit waste in there, so the "soil" level is finally rising. It should be perfect by spring. (It was down over 2' from the last 2 years.)

Also, I didn't get the raking finished, but we're having a week of perfect weather, so I'll get another chance in a couple of days. Cool

I went looking for the jicama harvest, but it didn't happen. I'll never plant that again. (Didn't know the leaves are poison, either.) Mad

I found the last of the kohlrabi I planted last year. We ate it raw and it was a real treat -- sweet, crunchy, AWESOME! My only complaint is that it takes so long and only produces 1 "fruit." Then I realized that it produces best in the "off" season. I can plant the seeds in Jiffy Pellets in the fall, then, as I pull up the spent summer crops, I can replace them with the kohlrabi seedlings. That space normally stays empty all winter, so I'll be turning "wasted" space into "productive" space. YEE HAH! Life is Good! happy turtle
