Yesterday I filmed a new garden video:
There is a ton of stuff in this video. I hadn’t filmed in a while so I packed in a garden tour, a look at the rare plants I’m propagating from cuttings, a slide banjo I built, and a couple of new paintings.
I’m working on my style, trying to reach a point where I’m happy with my portrait work.
Back to the cuttings.
My friend Curtiss hooked me up with longevity spinach, Okinawa spinach, chaya, cranberry hibiscus and edible-leaf hibiscus. My mom got me the mulberry cuttings.
The Okinawa spinach and longevity spinach both died, but the other cuttings are taking.
Over at the garden lot, I’m getting lots of wild amaranth.
But the cultivated amaranth that I have growing in one of the beds are really looking great. They’re getting quite big, as you can see in the video.
I will post another vid soon.
Also, I think this video needs more views:
Just saw this on Facebook….https://greengardeningmatters.blogspot.com/2017/09/end-of-seminole-pumpkin-season.html?m=1
Seminole Pumpkin Pie
I’ve grown them in Central Fl (Hernando). Pretty vigorous and productive, as well as resistant to everything, including squirrels.
Welcome back David. Been missing you from my inbox.
Thank you, Alex. I’m back at long last.
RE – Amaranth. How is it you have no worms? I tried growing some, but gave up after they were mostly devoured. Not a leaf untouched. Might have been able to solve the problem with BT, but didn’t think the yield would have justified the expense. Hope you never have that problem.
Good to have you back, for my daily dose of the demented! And good luck with the proposed land purchase, I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you.
