garden update

Nice to work in the garden a bit ~ I pulled all the radishes. Yesterday I planted 5 tomato plants – 4 around the recycled blue wastebasket which I had drilled holes in on the bottom and sides to just above ground level. Then all you have to do is water in the container (after it’s filled with compost). Each plant needs 5 gallons a week, I think. Also, today I started a spiral herb garden – just need to find more bricks or rocks 🙂 I’ve always wanted one, and now must be the time !~

The plan is not to have deer jump in the fence; Scott put up green fishing line way up high and tied white little rags around on it ~ sure wanting it to work !5.29.17memorialday 013.JPG

Horseradish growing tall – not sure how big it will get, but there is a flower on top starting to form.

Last but not least, the newest key-hole garden. I just put all my old seeds in there a few weeks ago and this is what’s coming up – sunflowers or squash – we’ll have to wait & see.5.29.17memorialday 016

 

Egypt

Curious about Egypt and its history.

Isaiah Chapter 19

21 And the LORD shall be known to Egypt, and the Egyptians shall know the LORD in that day, and shall do sacrifice and oblation; yea, they shall vow a vow unto the LORD, and perform [it].
22 And the LORD shall smite Egypt: he shall smite and heal [it]: and they shall return [even] to the LORD, and he shall be intreated of them, and shall heal them.
23 In that day shall there be a highway out of Egypt to Assyria, and the Assyrian shall come into Egypt, and the Egyptian into Assyria, and the Egyptians shall serve with the Assyrians.
24 In that day shall Israel be the third with Egypt and with Assyria, [even] a blessing in the midst of the land:
25 Whom the LORD of hosts shall bless, saying, Blessed [be] Egypt my people, and Assyria the work of my hands, and Israel mine inheritance.

lilac and redbud time and maple seeds

The color is great !

When I saw the above picture of the redbud tree, I noticed the maple seeds. After all these years, I never even noticed the seeds came before the leaves. So I researched about maple seeds. They are edible in the Spring around this time or through the end of April. Our branches are way to high, but I found some on the ground the wind must have blown down at the park today. I tasted a seed and it was okay – they say they taste like a cross between peas and okra. I just threw the few that I had into our crock-pot soup. No one will know. Each helicopter has 1 or 2 seeds. In the fall they fly like a helicopter being designed by our Creator to fly far away from the tree. They are quite the pest in the Fall around here because they get in the gutters and we constantly have to clean them off the driveway where they land, actually not so far from the tree 🙂

My wedding ring kinda shows their size
