Echi what?

Posted: 09/08/2015 at 09:09

Ugh. I dont like the brown flowers. I prefer the annuals, cherokee sunset and prairie sun. Lots of seeds in a packet.  All the new perennial echinaceas act like annuals in my soil anyway. Flower when first planted, then just a label acting like a grave marker.

Stuff is drying out fast. The downpour last week has gone. I have plants drooping. I left the soaker hose on the new raspberries last night. It will go on the beans and sweet peas tonight. My Magnolia soulangeana is covered in powdery mildew. Not a good look next to the glossy leaves of M. Grandiflora Exmouth.

 

At least it's well watered

How many people leave the tap running while you clean your teeth?

My friend in Western Australia has no rain for months at a time. They are sand over limestone, so everything runs straight through. Many houses have private boreholes for garden watering. They are only allowed to use sprinklers on certain days each week, and the rain water butt is bigger than my shed, 5 thousand gallons I think. It takes all the water off of the roof. Everyone has meters, baths are classes as luxuries.

I have grown Swift for three years. I sow seed under glass in individual pots in May and plant out in June when frosts have gone. Mine are between 5 and 6ft. They are in a block, 7 plants by 10. They are only just opening the male flowers, and the females are barely showing. I do not expect to be eating the corn until September.

Any Apple Experts?

I love Apples macs

I've been using them since a retailer lent me one of the early ones for the weekend to try, 20 odd years ago.  It went back but I ordered one. I find them much more reliable than PC's. For graphics, or video editing, the only way to go.
