Oops! Sorry for the quick disappearance but my brother got married this past weekend and I had some last minute printing to do for their celebration.
The wedding was in Lake Lure, NC, at the hotel where they filmed part of Dirty Dancing. . . which I've never seen, so the references went over my head.
Otherwise I've been up to a few things. I recently:
Biked the new greenway that runs behind our neighborhood. It's a pretty easy 'n short (2 mile) ride, even for me.
Planted seed potatoes. This time I'm trying the hill method.According to Seeds of Change, I should add some companions such as horseradish, beans, corn, cabbage, marigold, limas, eggplant (as a trap crop for potato beetle)
Planted 4 Ostrich fern (crowns?) and 5 bare root violets.
Transplanted Queen of the Night tulips that had multiplied but weren't getting enough sun to really flourish.
Planted 4 hosta hybrids that keep small leaves. Here's to hoping they're tasty!
I've seen some of my work come to life in a few new places; one I'm particularly proud of is the new Heavy Petal site. Recognize those nasturtiums? Yep, those are mine!
