This young buck loves to hang out beneath the California Lilac (Ceanothus L.) bushes. These beautiful bushes are only twenty feet from my gardens. I have had ZERO deer problems this season, even though the deer are right up to the doorstep.
If you have friends with gardens, chances are that you also have friends with chickens ... or you may have them yourself! Show them off on this website!
Share with other gardeners, and maintain photo galleries to share with your friends. Learn from others in habitat zones similar to your own.
These are more of my wife's plants and they are everywhere you look this time of year. For those who love in parts of the country where these do not grow or flourish, you are really missing out.
In a matter of days, the beehives will be lost in the daisies! Here, you can see them growing right up to the hive entrances. I think they will be some happy bees. :)
I just had to share with you a photo of one of our new hens. I have named her "Skidmark." I'll let you figure that one out ... (click on the title of this post and then on the photo to enlarge).
Did you know that you can eat the flowers from your chive plants? I know, I know ... you're probably thinking: eat flowers?
As someone posted here a week or so ago, I love the Drunken Woman Frizzy Headed lettuce! It's fun to grow, fun to say and good to eat! Here's a photo of the lettuce as it looks now ... I've already been harvesting it!
My wife took this awesome photo of our back yard today. As you can see - everything is in bloom. We are so blessed to live here in all this beauty! Our friends call our property 'Paradise,' and for good reason.
I know one of the authors of this website is fond of the Drunken Woman Frizzy Headed lettuce, so I decided to give it a try. Looks good so far! I bought mine from Territorial Seed ... not sure where else you can get it.
During my hive inspection yesterday, I pulled out the plywood beneath the screened bottom board on Hive A and saw ... a whole bunch of varrao mites! Some alive, most dead. How could this be? I hived the package only three weeks ago.
