"OK, thank you! I was wondering if I bag them too early it will prevent the fig wasp from getting in there, though I don't think VdB needs to be pollinated."

Chico jujube (GI 7-62) is blooming for the first time! Can you spot the tiny praying mantis?

"if those blossoms don't prosper, there is always a chance it will go through another flush of new growth later in the year with more flowers, and possibly fruit/s.  ~8 hrs of direct sunlight is key."

Chico jujube (GI 7-62) root stock definitely has sent up some suckers. I will be pulling these in a week or so.

"Thank you Rafael! I will make sure to cut instead of pulling. It is a handsome tree, I am really looking forward to see if it will flower eventually this year, but maybe next year still."

Hi Jacq -Sorry, I don't have that cardboard anymore. In addition to trying bicycle shops to find large pieces, you might want to check with a Costco. Sometimes they have a lot of large pieces from all of their big furniture items, or other big Costco-sized things.  :)    Good luck!

Jacq,

Have some grape vine cuttings for you, including a cane that got buried by accident and already has roots!  I'm 80% sure its a Flame, if not it is Thomson seedless.  Let me know if you want it and when.

Sorry Jackie, I just realized you can't send an email under this system until I accept your friend invitation.  Here is my message:

I live at 5415 E OSBORN RD. (56th St & Indian School Rd)  I am home most of the day.  You are welcome to stop by.  Give me a call at 602.840.7473 and we can agree upon a pickup time.  Bring gloves as some have their big copper staples still in them though I will help you load them up.

Jacq,

Hi!  I noticed you are in Tempe and going to the seed exchange.  Might you be able to swing past my place in Tempe and get a big batch of Lemon Basil seeds to take in?  My cross streets are University and Hardy.  If that works for you, drop me a note at lisettev370 at gmail.  Thanks, Lisette

Symphony of the Soil

Last night, I watched Symphony of the Soil, recommended by a fellow permie. It helps to confirm what I am doing to our front yard is the right way to start building a good soil structure for the plants. And I have amazing plant growth to prove it.

Catch a free online viewing of one of the most important film that all gardeners and farmers could watch to understanding soil building and the importance of soil building to help make the future a better place for all of us.

March garlic harvest, or just a very impatient and curious gardener

I have never planted garlic before. After reading Catherine's monthly planting reminders. I decided to put a handful of sprouted garlic clove that I have bought from the farmers market and grocery store for cooking, all around the container planters and my yard.

Then I started putting random sprouted garlic whenever I have chopped up some for cooking in the garden through October and November. Thinking it will be cool to see where and what condition garlic will thrive in my…

Planting blueberry grapevine cuttings

Today, I could not wait any longer to check and see if my blueberry grapevine cuttings from Paul has rooted or not. And out of the four cuttings, two of them had put out really good root!

So I have located two spots in my backyard next to the pool for them to grow. This is all mostly experiment since I have never grown grapes and this is just too much fun!

Thank you Paul for trading the blueberry grapevines with me! I am really excited to see if these will…

Self Watering (Sub-Irrigation) trough planter continued

I finally finished building the planters. Today, I was able to plant everything in except for the tomato plant. I am still deciding whether to plant the tomato seedlings from the orange/yellow tomato that has seeds sprouted inside or the tomato seeds that I have collected from farmers market bought cherry tomato.

Here's the wicking columns packed down with planting mix.…
