Saturday Gardening and Puttering Thread on the Day before Valentines Day [KT]

taterssl.jpg

Hi, everybody! Did you expect roses as our top photo today? Well, The Horde is tough. Here is an example of a dedicated husband:

My husband grew potatoes on our deck in large plastic tubs. When winter came, one tub still had young plants in it, so he pulled it inside and put it in front of a large window. Today (Jan 16) we dug up these. The one in the center is the funniest! Now he's going to plant spinach seeds for me. (You can sign me bluegreen kayak). (Thank you for the weekly shot of cheery non-political talk, with wonderful pictures; I really enjoy what you do with it.)

Here's another romantic idea if you don't have any veggies in the garden right now:

No roses from The Horde this week, but another beautiful hibiscus from Neal in Israel

Last Week

SFGoth asked about shade plants for the Bay Area.

How about a White Bat Flower? Indoor or summer patio plant except in frost-free locations.

whitebatflwr.jpg

Here are 12 more. Fog is a real issue there. This is a little fuchsia native to cloud forests, to attract hummingbirds.

tcn in AK asked about growing lavender in Alaska. Here are some tips.

Here are 53 favorite perennials for Zone 3, too. Some beautiful things. Including peonies.

The Edible Garden

Do you dare serve Soothing Meat Loaf on Valentines Day? It includes winter veggies.

meat_loafsss.jpg

And here are some summer veggies in winter:

In my part of Florida it is often better to garden in the winter, it is the only time you can grow tomatoes and I have found planting in containers can extend the season even longer. I plant in early August and when the night time temps drop into the low 70's in late October the plants are starting to flower. On the odd chance that it gets too cold I bring the containers in for the night. One night close to freezing is about all we get per year.

This year I only grew superhot peppers.

A quick note, I started using cloth containers this year and am not too thrilled with them. I have been using a hybrid version of Kratky method starting in Solo cups and transplanting to the containers. Kind of because of my dislike of the cloth and lazy me, I cut a hole in a milk jug big enough to hold the Solo cup fill it with nutrients, then stick the plant I would be about to transplant in the milk jug and then put it in the cloth container. My first experiment worked so well I am doing it with the rest of my plants.

Thanks

Gardens of and Puttering By The Horde

I stepped on a toad "sheltering" by the front door this week. Don't think I hurt it.

From Illiniwek:

Worst of this winter is here, single digits. Not much to contribute to the garden community lately, but birds are fun.

I like the interaction here ...challenger -defender - observer --
bluejays are near the top of the pecking order ... the red-bellied woodpeckers are at the top (not counting an occasional hawk swoop).

jayyxx.jpg

More:

Jupiter the barn cat did get one junco, but mostly hangs out there and gives up after several minutes, while the birds wait in the trees

ktbb cat.jpg

I've counted as many as 22 cardinals at once when the cat's away ... they are more sociable with other birds than the jays.

Juncos and pine siskins are in abundance.

I'd have to have a heater behind those chairs and a fire in front of them to sit out there.

7 If I can work up some ambition I may putter at closet cleanup. Collecting jigsaw puzzles still NiB and some games that have not been played in decades into sacks and out to the car. I keep not calling any nursing homes to ask if they'd take these; maybe having them in the car will give me extra reminder to do that. Our microwave broke last week. I pulled the plate which is same size as the new ones out to save and also decided to make it a lazy Susan for the hall closet. Gardening is limited to watering the houseplant and picking up its shed leaves.

8 Beautiful birds and peppers! Despite having mason bees, my peppers didn't appear to get pollinated this year. Tomatillos sure went gangbusters though!

We got snow, and i put up feeders for the birds. Many "humbird" visitors, as my kiddo calls them. Also a ravenous gang of juncos, and even a maurading bristle of bushtits. They are amusing, showing up in a mob, eating, and then moving on.

9 We *were* having such a mild winter. Until Thursday night-- then WHAM! got down to 20F and been snowing constantly ever since.

Puttering involves snow shovel, rock salt and kitty litter.

Glad to not go anywhere for a few days!

10 I've been surviving winter the way all northern Midwesterners do, by perusing seed and bulb catalogs.

Did pick up some blue morning glory, stock, and poppy seeds at the garden store. And this year, I SWEAR, I'm going to start my seedlings later so that I don't cry when they are decimated by ice storms in early May.

12 My mom's subdivision has two large gangs of turkeys that rove the area looking for comestibles. Between the squirrels, deer, and turkeys we lure with tasty treats, we will be set for the Great Never-ending Winter.

13 Our bird feeder has so many birds, I can't keep up. Between Red Bellied Woodpeckers, Nuthatches, Chickadees, Cardinals, Downy Woodpeckers, Wrens, Sparrows and Mourning Doves, we go through about 10 pounds of seed a month as well as three suet blocks every two weeks or so. And a visiting Crow who has been trying to figure out how to get to the suet blocks.

And today, the wife wants to work on her quilt and has pressed me into ironing it when she's done. I would retire out to my shop, but it's cold and no heat out there.

14 Hey That Guy, where are you located? Ish. Sounds like a great crowd at the feeder!

I put out water for mil's birds on friday (theirs froze hard) and i saw 5-6 spotted towhees. More than i had ever seen at once!

15 Only a tiny dusting of snow here. Just gray skies and single (F) digit temps. Negative overnight but did climb up some. Mild compared to lots of places but I get the horses fed and get back in the house pretty quickly.

18 Indoor puttering: closet cleanup (UGH!) and laundry chores.

If it hadn't gotten so cold, would be cleaning out the garden-storage shed, but I'm feeling too wimpy for that.

Will make some chicken soup-- hubby's not feeling well.

Got an amaryllis blooming right now. I've never seen a plant grow so fast. Beautiful red petals.

20 On Thursday afternoon there were about 30 robins (!) in mom's flowering crabapple tree. It was noisy and a bit surreal to see them with all the snow. I looked on the WI dnr site, apparently it's not too unusual to have robins stay the winter here. I never knew that!

21 From Boise area: Scratch "no snow on ground" comment from last week. Started Thurs. noon, now probably 6-8" down, still falling - due to stop mid-afternoon. Snowman making time! Yesterday, set out 2nd "quail seed block".

Snow has blown all the way to the back of the kitchen wall, where I tucked my 4 "winter sowing" salad boxes. Maybe it's better that they're insulated by snow cover, since Sunday night temps will be in the teens.

We'll shovel driveways tomorrow - juniors smallbore class to teach Mon. eve. (is the indoor range's parking lot even passable? - might have to cancel).

Before the snow hit, I did leaf raking, and turned the soil in 4 raised beds. The other 2 are still partly frozen.

Catalogs so far: Territorial Seed Co. (ordered from them in 2020), Gurney's (have never made an order from them).
***
My usual encouragement to all here: improve survival skills, build a trustworthy network of friends/allies, keep up morale, resist oppressive "FedCoats", and mock gov't officials & media (without getting caught red-handed). Also, write to your Senators/Reps to express opinions (politely will work better to get them to listen).

22 Howdy y'all. Just stoping by to ax a question.

Are albino birds a thing?

I have been seeing a nearly All- white white breasted nuthatch on our feeders.

24 Albino birds are very rare. They mostly don't make it to adulthood. It would be white with no pigment, pink eyes and pale beak and legs.

Posted by: That Guy What Always Says Yeah Buddy TM at February 13, 2021 02:10 PM (R5lpX)

25 Ever since we rescued a stuck Eastern Bluebird that was in on of our bushes the other night, hubby is on a save the birds quest. He had to go pick some things up at Lowes last night for the room he's working on and came home with bird houses and suet and mealworm and bags and bags of stuff for the birds.

He's so far filled and put out a feeder for the birds and this morning he put out a big pan of food closer to the bushes the birds seem to like.

We've seen like 4 Eastern bluebirds within a foot of the pan and yet they still seem to want to head into the bushes to look for whatever berries might be left on them.

Bird brains....

30 It didn't get all that cold here,30ish, but my elephant ear plants are looking real miserable. And my Crinum lily leaves are a brown stringy mess. They all survived a freak snow and colder temps a few years ago so I hope they'll be fine.

This little guy is almost all white. I can verrrrry faintly see some light color on his back and head which makes me think it's a White Breasted Nuthatch. We have them in abundance. I haven't been able to get close enough to see his eyes. I'm trying to get a picture and will share it here if I do.

32 Speaking of robins, we've had hundreds of them pass through our yard in central Texas which is very unusual. Usually we'd see a total of maybe 20 over the entire migration season. Report from a local TV station said due to a drought farther west, robins had moved east in to our area this year. One birding group estimated that there were 2 million robins in the Austin area this winter!

Posted by: Art Rondelet of Malmsey at February 13, 2021 02:20 PM (fTtFy)

33 Weasel, albino or leucistic? Last year, I spotted a black-and-white red-tailed hawk. I thought I was seeing things, but the extension office said there are a few in my area.

There is also a mutant robin with a white head that summers in the nearby town. I think I shared a photo of that last year.

Love the bird photos!

My gardening currently consists of removing dead leaves and cutting the withered bits from tge overwintering plants.

Posted by: NaughtyPine at February 13, 2021 02:20 PM (/+bwe)

34 Rather than albino, your nuthatch is probably leucistic.

37 "We *were* having such a mild winter. Until Thursday night-- then WHAM!" --

exactly ... except the "polar vortex" (or whatever they are calling it) came here a little earlier. Another week before a return to normal. New Orleans may have freezing temps for Mardi Gras, a little further north could get pretty good snow. Southerners on Ice can be a little scary.

38 It's too cold and icy to do anything in the garage but we are making plans to rearrange it and the living room. Everything was set up for our dog: gates to keep him off the stairs, food storage, bedding, dishes, etc. We plan to combine that with reducing some of the clutter.

Garden connection: We'll actually be able to get to some of the soil amendment bags, tools, and containers that are buried under all sorts of stuff.

39 I thought those tiny little fuchsias for hummingbirds were interesting. The Bay Area used to be a big fuchsia growing habitat, but then some blight got started there. Now you only see a few species offered. Usually not the fancy kinds.

51 Just got back inside after refilling the bird feeders. My wife has a thistle seed "sock" that needed refilling too. It was iced over on one side and I had to hold it in my bare hands to melt some of it off... brrrr.

I buy 2 different mixes that have sunflower seeds, some nuts, berries and whatnot. There's also a suet cake since it's been freaking cold for the last week or so.

I'll send a couple bird pics in for next week or the week after thread.

I made a dump-pile of no-waste seeds and nuts where there are maple stumps that refuse to rot. When I added to it today, the grass was completely gone, exposing the wood.

Like piranhas on the wing!

57 I have a moderate sized burn pile. Mostly branches, but some, uh, other "stuff" is in there too. It's been too wet to do anything with it but with the ground, trees, etc. all frozen it's perfect for not having to worry about any sparks or embers starting anything.

58 The first birds I can remember hearing as a toddler were Mourning Doves. They would wake me up in the morning (is it Mourning or Morning Doves?) and I would lay there and listen to their sweet and mellow (and sad) sound.

I was maybe 3 yo. My favorite bird.

82 Schumer's statement about leaving it to the American people to make sure Trump doesn't run again sounds like a dog whistle to would-be assassins.

Mitch McConnell needs to go. In his closing remarks at the impeachment circus he said, "There's no question --none -- that President Trump is practically and morally responsible for provoking the events of the day. No question about it."

87 I planted fava beans mostly as a cover crop that will fix nitrogen in several of my raised beds. They went berserk and choked out my kale and chard. I like fava beans but what a pain they are to shell and prep!

88 Keena, fava bean plants can grow BIG, can't they?
Garbanzo bean plants aren't exactly low-growing, but they are kind of pretty.

89 #58 jakee308.com, it's "mourning", because that sad sound resembles someone mourning a dead loved one.
