We're trying for dwarf strawberries on our window sill. 

I'm not optimistic ...

That should work just fine.  Keep in mind that it takes 1 yr for the transplants to start producing and you rotate fields (pots) every other year or so.

If none turn you in for growing and harvesting coaca. You might have to serialize, inventory, and be able to verify non-deversion of each leaf, too.

Now, that we have discussed the fantasy, some fool can suspect that we intend to make the fantasy real, and DHS will. My version doesn't have any benefit, not even a high or buzz, for all of your troubles to grow your own .. chocolate.

Ah just finished a nice lunch, fresh picked multi color lettuce, the first head of brocolli, a can of Bumble Bee Salmon, mayo and a few raisins for great salad.........all of the veggies are mulched in for a dry summer, hopefully a few tomatoes in 2 weeks..........as soon as the peas are harvested the squash gets planted....the Swiss Chard is providing greens almost every day now.

27 peaches from one 36" high dwarf peach tree! A decent harvest considering we have had a very wet growing season.  They aren't as perfect as we would like, but the taste is um shall we say, outstanding! Oh, 100% organic to boot!



The rain has slowed the tomatoes by several weeks and their production is light.  We had an outstanding raspberry harvest.  Lot's of frozen berries in the freezer and some nice preserves for the morning toast. Garlic has been harvested and cukes have been planted in their place.

Ain't gardening fun?

I look at those peaches, and wish I were bright enough to invent a device that could save the juice that's bound to be wasted just from the mere act of eating them. Beautiful crop, Paul. :)

Day off today, picked up 200 gallons of goat manure.  While shoveling it in, I turn around and I'm staring eye to eye with a very ugly Llama.  Seems that this Llama is the goats "watch dog" and wanted to make sure we weren't up to no good. No idea how to deal with this ugly critter, I call up my friend who is sitting on his sail boat in the middle of the Chesapeake bay, "how do I get rid of the watch dog"?, just yell at him and wave your arms.....sure enough off he goes........whew!

Gonna make another manure run friday, anyone wanna go and keep an eye out for the Llama?
