Lawn and Garden 2020
The bermuda is scalped, fertilized, and watered in.

We are getting between 3 and six strawberries a day from a second year plant, much more prolific and larger fruits.

Big beefsteak tomatoes, got 6 green ones.

Various peppers. Herbs. Pumpkin varieties and I think a watermelon in there.

King snake lives under the bricks by the garden spigot. Brown thrashers in the bushes but I hope he eats copperheads instead.

How do you keep the deer out?

Love the garden gnomes.

That is a giant effing snake. I hate it.

King snakes are awesome. We have a few in our yard and I never see copperheads. Doing the lords work

re: Lawn and Garden 2020
Haven’t caught sight of any snakes yet but a plethora of anoles and we’ve had more honey bees than I can remember.

Not growing much edible beyond basic herbs like rosemary and basil this year but my roses are kicking ass, as are my hydrangeas, azaleas, and lavender.

Bermuda is doing wel in most places but still figuring its shite out in others.

Got a tall white oak that I’m afraid I’m going to have to bring down. Only carrying leaves on the lower half branches and nothing above that. FIL is big into wood working so maybe it’ll be Christmas come early for him.

How early did you start the vegetables?

My youngest is gardening. We planted about 2 weeks ago. We've got good growth. But you look way ahead of us. We still had to cover everything for the first week.

I’ve been a massive failure at gardening but managed to turn out some BOSS broccoli this year. Planted in early March and went 100% on my plants getting big nice crowns before the weather turned hot.

Zucchini hates me though. All flowers..no fruit.

Had a tree taken down last fall. Needed to get out some roots to lay sod. Thought it would be a pretty quick job. Took all day and every tool I had in the garage. Holy smokes. Note to self ... pay the extra coin to get the roots taken out. Never make that mistake again.

Give him the burls, keep the rest for baskets.

Tomato count- ten green tomatoes at the moment and one of the varieties is "lemon boy". New to me. I don't know about yellow tomatoes, Im pretty sure God intended them to be red or Cherokee purple.

Where's yalls lawns and gardens?

re: Lawn and Garden 2020
I wish I could post pictures.
I’ll be ripping out gardenias that we planted last spring, made it through the drought and the winter and have now decided to die.
Replace that with something more hardy.
I’ve got to landscape my new stimulus money patio, (thanks trump). I’ve already backfiled it, graded it out and brought some large moss covered rocks up from the pasture and put them in the landscape. Sank a fire pit into the patio so I’m kinda going with a wilderness camp site theme around the patio. So it’s all gona be ever green stuff like junipers and whatnot around it. Hope it turns out how I have it envisioned.
This weekend I’m renting a bush hog attachment for the bobcat and going to town on the tall grass and brush on my lot. Landscaping a 2 acre yard yourself is hell.

1- Download the free Imgur app.
2- Create account with a BS name like Griffindawg
3A- You can open the Imgur app and take a photo directly into the service.
3B- You can use your camera phone photos with a separate order of operations to upload existing photos stored on your phone.
3C- Each new "Post" you make on Imgur give you option for Public or Hidden. Choose Hidden. This means only people with the specific link (such as people here after you post the link) can see it.
4- Find the "Get Share Links" button when you have the picture pulled up in Imgur. Copy the one that says "BBCode for Messageboards"
5- Post that here, and the picture displays.

It is slightly complicated but after you do it a few times, the steps become second nature.

Also, you can do all of this from a regular computer at Imgur dot com.



ETA- yes, I realize I just used the term "camera phone" like it's 2007. Not gonna edit.
