Now that we’ve been thoroughly dampened (2.43 inches of rain this week), and the ground is nice and softened up, it seemed the right time to finally get a couple of little volunteer trees planted. These guys have had been hanging out in pots for a couple years, and have come along nicely. So today they both found new homes out in the pasture.
Pretty sure this one is a Mountain Hemlock
and the other is a Port Orford Cedar
They will have to live in cages for quite a while, for their own protection, as the sheep (especially Daphne) would make a quick meal of them without a barrier.
Also got garlic planted- both in the hoophouse and outside.
Inside I’ve got first year plants grown from bulbils of our regular “garden variety” garlic (no idea what it is- gift from a friend many years ago). Just dug and replanted them with adequate spacing so hopefully they will bulb up next year
and a couple new varieties from the farm store (Silver Rose and Red Toch) planted outside (bricks and rock to remind me of the edge of their planting area!)
Nice to have that done. Very nice that the weather has cooperated enough to enjoy being out doing garden work in early Nov!
And, I have a completed pair of socks to show off this week- ends tucked in and everything
I’d be remiss if I failed to mention the significant contributions of Boo Kitten to this project.
Some documentation of her being enormously helpful in the final stages.
Always nice when furry friends show an interest and lend a helping paw. 🙂
Not sure what is up next. I am suddenly without anything on the needles!
