Critters that love my plants....This was taken Fri., Dec. 16th - a little blurry because of the window glass. They've constantly, for 3-4 years now, been eating my plants, all year long - particularly the ivy I have grown directly behind the house (because we haven't built a porch yet and we don't want to mow the hill so I planted English Ivy). One momma is licking the baby on the right. I hate these guys. I haven't planted anything beautiful or new in years because of them.

Stay on topic VA..this is more flowers, not less flowers. Ba da bing! Save hair clippings and spread them around the sensative areas. Have hubby drink a few beers and mark his territory out there. Works for me. I have heard it works fine.

I have to laugh. Ivy is a delicacy for deer.

One day long ago when deer/elk were on our property (I forget which), I said, "Oh, they're sooooo beautiful and noble and elegant and... Wait a minute! They're wrecking the place!" Which they were. Ripping at saplings, bending and breaking them down, eating the cherry trees to shreds. Ran out and chased them away.

Watch out. They LOVE roses-- buds, flowers-- they'll nip them down to nothing. So will Javelina. What I need is a great, big, mountain lion in the neighborhood.

Hmmm, do ya think that would work if Sweetie "marked" the hedges between us & the neighbor? She lets her little yip-yap foo-foo dogs out at 2 a.m. and they have that row of hedges smelling like the monkey house at the zoo! And they're our hedges, no less. (Drives me nuts. No, she's not a good neighbor.)

I've gotta get out & take some mistletoe pictures - they're our "greenery" on the trees in winter, lol.

He may need to aim for the yip-yap foo-foo dogs instead of the hedges. Even if it did not work it would make for one heck of a story for telling.

Love that idea for the foo-foo dogs. Barb43 - Perhaps you could find something online that is a deterrent for dogs.

Hubby's going to drink and wiz outside tonight! Doin' bpose 'says' he heard it works!

I had taken some photos of the flowers I do have - several are encased in green plastic-coated fencing - all 4 sides and the top - it was the only way to protect the Red Sedum because they munch that and then I don't get blooms - but, I can't find those fencing pics - started that two years ago.

Here's my Clematis (purple & white) (2006) BEFORE they ate it all. Every year it just looks worse and worse. In very early spring, I am going to cut them to the ground. I may end up having to remove them totally (although that's hard to do with these babies-they just pop back up again). Wanted to add these photos to stay in compliance with the thread (tee-hee!). 'Course, they never touch the Iris - thank goodness.

Spring bloomed & leafed out on us early this year. Here is a tree in the front yard of one of my HUD houses. It was almost finished blooming by March 22nd.





And this is one of my HUDs that's closing tomorrow. I took this picture last week to use in the ready-to-close inspection.

Here are a few of the exotic tomatoes we're trying to grow this year; some for the 1st time, others brand new to us, and photos are taken from the seed packets:

Black Russian Tula Tomato:





Yellow Pear Tomato:



Black Grape Tomato:



Red Bottom Tomato:



Red Pear Tomato:



Egg Yolk Yellow Tomato:



Now all we need is for the weather to cooperate for the next few weeks !

I've never heard of those varieties. The Black Grape ones look interesting.

Nice close ups. I like the silver piece too. May you have good luck and warm temps. Do you plant in pots, raised beds, or the ground?

Hmmm, those tomatoes look pretty neat! I'd taste test them. wink

Hope the weather brings you a bumper crop, Vermont. You'll have to keep us posted.

They start out in incubator seed trays, then go to individual pots for a month or so . . . . then out to the gardens where their lower leaves are stripped and the first 18" to 2 Feet of stems are buried (sometimes vertically, sometimes horizontal) to grow more roots, and so they don't normally need extra watering.

We only have 18 plants this year, about 4' apart so that they shouldn't touch one another, and you can walk among them. They all have flowers, and some have rudimentary fruit . . . . they'd better get cracking !

The gardens are just roto-tilled sections about 40' X 100' where different crops are rotated from year to year. My Wife has been adding sifted compost (like 10 cubic yards per year) to these areas so they're becoming fairly responsive.

I'm reminded of a house I had in Massachusetts where we were up-grading the power from 100 Amp to 200 Amp and the Electrician was shaking the old circuit breaker box to get it out of a cabinet in a basement Den when a bag of pre-1964 Silver Quarters and Dimes fell down from atop the box and hit him on the head (softly) and he told me about it and handed over the money which was 92 Quarters and 10 Dimes . . . . the prior Owner must have used that Den for Poker Parties or something similar. Must have been worth $500 at the time (roughly 1978), and I rewarded him with some token . . . . he could have kept it all. It re-instated my belief in the underlying honesty of Italian Electricians.

So that's my story.

The BRTT's look weird. I'd love a large, meaty and TASTY and wonderful smelling tomato. Either my taste buds are dead (which is a possibility) or they just don't make tomatoes like they used to. I've got the name of one on the tip of my tongue from years ago but can't remember its name.

I've read to not refrigerate tomatoes or they will lose their taste; but if you've only used 1/2 of it, wouldn't it be less risky (bacteria) to put it in the frig?

I ask with interest. I had a neighbor about 10 years ago who taught me almost to a tee how you describe your process. She had me use old plastic water bottles as starter containers (the top 1/3 lopped off). Then they were easily snipped down the side to free up the seedling for transfer. She had me snip the lower leaves and plant it at a 45 degree angle. But she had me convinced that the roots do not like cold soil and raising a bed or keeping them in pots enabled the soil to warm up and please the root system. But it looks like you have your system down pat and working quite well.

Regarding silver currency... I have found 2 silver coins during regular merchant transactions in the last few years. One was a Mercury dime, the other a WWII Jefferson nickel. It does not take much to get me amped up about coins. I still smile when I find a wheat penny.
