So Friday started out overcast .. but I could see the sun way up high, working hard to fight through the overcast layers and before long it had succeeded and the day turned out to be sunny.
And I enjoyed the look of one of my newly painted found objects. A little plastic table, found on D’s and my little adventure day on Wednesday. Transformed with some flat black spray paint .. now ready to be used somewhere in the garden.
A large plant pot, painted green with gold overtones .. I think I’ll add more green paint and will post a pic … then there is a metal filigree plant holder, painted black .. looks kind of cool and I’ll post a pic tomorrow of that. One of those funky things that looks good in a garden.
Played around with my garlic crop .. separating them into baskets. I saved the largest cloves for planting this year, in another month .. my gardening neighbour plants garlic mid-October and I’ll follow her lead.
Besides, right now there are some squash plants sprawling all over the area where I plan to grow the garlic and i want to give these plants some time to produce some squash!
Then I sorted garlic to be given away .. and some to be sent to my sister .. oh, and some for me to use also!
A basket of garlic that hadn’t a covering on their cloves .. guess I dug them up too early .. more patience needed for next year, it seems.
Finally, a little basket of garlic seeds and one of those little yellow bulbets .. I’ll put some in pots and see if I can grow garlic greens for eating now!
I tried an experiment that I saw posted all over Pinterest, that of re-growing green onion greens. It’s magic! Day one, there were little new shoots and now, day three, they are growing larger.
Now, today, I will separate them into two groups and in one jar I will add some EM .. just to see what the difference will be.
And I bought these green onions from a local greenhouse, so, no chemicals!! Yeah.
So that was pretty much my gardening time yesterday .. and I plan to continue today.
Time to plant the Dragon kale that my gardening neighbour gave me …. this type turns blue in the sun and stays green in the shade. Lovely, I say. I’m really loving this kale and have fun just clipping away the lower leaves when I need some for a meal. Fun in the garden.
Well .. time to go outside and plant those kale plants … 🙂
