Re: *Autumn gardening chat * Oct-Nov 2012

That sounds awesome! I'm trying to work up to a foot deep since my soil is so poor. I forget, are you doing the back to eden garden like I am? If you are, I think he said 8 inches in the video.

You rock girl! Ray was saying yesterday how we need to go ahead and get some. I'd love to do the 8", but ours is so big I just can't immagine how many truck-loads that'd be.
I would think even if it's fresher stuff, it would be ready by then.

Re: *Autumn gardening chat * Oct-Nov 2012

ok so here's my indoor winter plants.

My volunteer basil, remember this little thing?


NOW:


My tomatoes that I cannot pronounce the name of.
early ssubakus aliana



purple basil, onion chives



flat leaf italian parsley


I forgot to get a pic of it before I started prepping it for dinner, but I picked my head of lettuce in the strawberry bed today to serve for dh's birthday dinner, it was yummy!

i'm not doing back to eden, although i've thought about it, but not right now. and my soil is actually pretty awesome because the guy we bought the house from has been gardening in this spot for years and years, and it appears that he did a lot of work with the soil. but, i used it hard this year so i want to make sure i put back what i took out

the indoor plants look awesome! still haven't planted mine this week i'll probably get to it. that's my plan anyways!

ok, i know this isn't veggies, and i ask a lot of questions but i'm hoping maybe you ladies might know more about flowers than i do. a flower has popped up in one of the raised beds in our yard. we didn't plant it, so it's obviously some perennial planted by the previous owner. it's low-growing with pretty green leaves and an unusual looking white blossom. the flower has sort of a rounded look to it, not lots of little petals or blossoms. it's sort of hard to explain. it started blooming in september and is STILL blooming as of today. we got a light dusting of snow this morning, that's how cold it's been. i am impressed and i MUST know what it is so that i can properly care for it and transplant it, since i want it in a different place next year. but it's seriously very pretty and such an awesome plant for blooming so late in the season. usually i use google to identify these things, but for the first time, it's completely failed me. i can't find anything that even looks close to what i've got. any thoughts?

Hard to say without seeing it but the only thing I can think of that would look like that is bind weed. In which case he didn't plant it, it's invasive and related to morning glory.

Re: *Autumn gardening chat * Oct-Nov 2012

ooh can't wait to see! We have this amazing flower that grows wild here, Datura or thornapples. They're poisonous but the flowers are just amazing and they smell heavenly. I have seeds from a apricot trumpet flower (related to them) to plant in the spring and I keep meaning to stop to gather some of the datura pods on the side of the roads but never find time. Supposedly they make pumpkins grow bigger if you inter-plant them. The flowers are like 8" long!

How big is the flower?

And is it a bulb flower?


Quite possibly this one:
