    Petunias growing in the cracks is so neat! Last year I was pulling stuff growing out of the cracks that turned out to be catnip. I have a planter of catnip that re-seeds every year and some seeds must have germinated in the cracks, but they were way bigger than my catnip in the planter.

    I'm growing Lantana in pots this year and I'm going to try to bring in doors and see if I can't keep them alive for the winter.

    I have no idea how I'm going to be able to pull my garden out and transplant to the other house . I may just need to let most of it go. Sad sauce

    It is amazing but it is just in this weird dirt by a crack and I am afraid to transplant it anywhere

    When I moved in there was this dying cactus that I nursed back to health and now it has this at ,east 6 foot vine thing growing in all directions and up. Kinda cool, not sure what it is though.



    This mornings "naked ladies" that's what my grandma swears they are

    Hazy and your mema are both correct ... belladonna lily/naked ladies = amaryllis. I have a red one that I force bloom indoors during winter.

    Are you sure that vine is growing out of the cactus? If not, it will likely strangle the cactus to death.

    It's a big pot. Maybe the previous owner planted something along with the cactus and it just never grew. I dunno. I have never seen a plant vine out like that so quickly. I am going to build it a trellis tonight

    I'm a little afraid to bump this thread. I don't want to summon a certain someone.

    Anyway, does anyone here compost for their yard/garden? I bought a tumbling compost thing and have been putting all the stuff in it as directed. I am not sure how long it should take though to turn into compost. It's breaking down, but it doesn't look like what I think compost should look like (kind of like dirt). Am I expecting too much too soon? It's been a couple of months now.

    Sorry so late replying. I've been reading the gardening boards and they suggest a 3 bin system. Because if you keep adding scraps to the bin- it's never really ready.

    But the short answer is 6 mths to a year.

    If you're constantly adding new material to the composter, you'll never get a complete batch of finished compost. There will always be something fresh in there. That's why you see a lot of recommendations for "three bin" systems: add fresh material to one bin, the second bin is in the process of finishing, and the third bin is finished and is where you take compost from when you need it.
    You said kitchen scraps "and stuff". Not sure what the "stuff" is, and you must have a good balance if it doesn't stink, but make sure you're adding enough "browns" -- carbon-heavy materials like autumn leaves, shredded cardboard or black and white newspaper, straw, etc.

    I love irises...they remind me of some of the few happy times with of my childhood, spent at my Grandma's house. I had some iris cuttings that came from her yard, right after we bought our first house, and I have taken them from house to house with me. Then I had a yard guy replace some sod and he dug them all up and threw them away before I knew what he was doing. So I went a little crazy this fall and bought like 35 different colors of iris rhizomes off Ebay. They are supposed to take a year to two years to bloom, but I planted them in October and I already have a bloom. I'm so excited.

    Those are so pretty & frilly, RBW!!!

    I love irises and amaryllis - I can take or leave tulips and daffodils.
    I hope that when the world comes to an end, I can breathe a sigh of relief, because there will be so much to look forward to. - Donnie Darko

    Thank you! I love amaryllis too. I used to have a bunch of those at my very first house.
