Toker

Any Gardeners?

Recommended Posts

My fruit trees are looking good. My plum trees are in full bloom. My apple and pear trees are running a little late also, but not worried. We always get a hard freeze in May, so I don’t need them blooming just yet. 

Lettuce is always a good and easy crop. 30-45 days to harvest, you can start some every week and never run out.

I think lettuce and/or greens are the top cash crop. And, mushrooms are right up there too. I need an income from home. I think I can do it. All the parts are here and I'm in a good spot for regional distribution. We'll see.

Figs are thick for first fruit

My hernia is screwing me up

But thankfully the kids around here aint lazy

Got one wants to dig a little and keep up the grass for money and im grateful.

Hell im ashamed to say it but i think i pay him extra to keep it weeded.

I show him tokets way...its easy

Just shave off the topbof tje weeds with a shovel and fine tune it by hand.

Im not to fuvking old to do this myself

But until i get the hernia fixed

Fuck it

Kiss my ole ass hehehe

Hope i dont get used to this lol.

Looks great Toker. Makes me a little homesick for the south. Everything grows there and fast. If they ever legalize it I could end up back down there one day. 

Have you ever grown artichokes? How long from transplant to harvest? I wonder if they would grow here.

Not sure, they grown in Cali well i know that.

First time i try them

They should be good here in our zone

I did vernilization in an attempt to get chokes This year instead of next.

But its going to be fun to see either way

Plant geek here lol.

Holy hell if we go legal

By by Cali hehehe

No im kidding

I suspect like coffee different regions produce different character product

But in terms of size

Its over sufer dudes

OMG, if they ever went legal in NC they would surpass the west coast or go right up against them. It's insane how well pot grows near the mountains there, but the whole state has the climate and mostly top grade soil at least in the western half of it.

Looking good bro. I should be able to get mine in the ground today. They are outgrowing the solo cups. I’m still worried about another freeze, but they are getting root bound and I dont want to lose them. I will start my tomatoes and peppers today also, they should be good to go in the ground the first week of June.

Pretty cool. I think the first is a Day Lilly, huh? They grow so easy. Just keep dividing them up every year and they will fill the whole yard if that's what you wanted. That looks like a rare'ish color on that one. I know people grow them and hybridize them to create new varieties and some go for thousands of dollars if you can create a special one. I have the basic yellow ones out back. Some flower early, some mid summer, and some late. 

I've seen the second one but I forget the name. Very cool looking and it likes that weather, it seems. Nature is so interesting

Hey, I like my wasps now. And they have more intelligence than honey bees ( I just read that today, actually my paper wasps are the ones that are smart... Never underestimate a wasp..)

I agree though, bees are disappearing. My older neighbor was talking to me about it the other day. All of the fruit trees are blooming this year but no bees.

I totally know what you were talking about when we were kids and all of the bees. You couldn't go into the clover barefoot, and we were always barefoot in the deep south. I remember the large black carpenter type bumble bees all over them, too. I see a sporadic honey bee around here but very few and not every day either. Lots of sweat bees and other weird types. I guess as long as they pollinate, but we need honey bees. They're the main workers. My property is more natural than not. The lady before me kept it that way. It's is good for the insects. They love all of the weeds and wildflowers. And, I dig getting high and watching them, heh.
