Near Birth Experience

Today, Bluegrass music sort of bloomed.   Well, it started what looks like a two-day process.  It will be the first bloom.  And as soon as it does, I will share its story.


This is what is should look like (hopefully):

No new blooms today.  I did go out and take photos of my garden at intermittent moments.  The sun may be an issue.  I would give it a C.  I don’t know if it is 5 hours – much of it is dappled through the trees much of the day.  I called the tree trimmer that was recommended, his machine was full.  Maybe just start with a trim, but I would love to have the elm tree gone, gone in the next couple of years.  Any experts out there think the sun is an issue?  I think it is soil and water, too – which I can do myself.

Here is the link to the animated version

    I have an old Maple dominatrix casting shade across my garden. I thought about composting her many times when I started my garden, but not anymore. I’ve learned to plant accordingly and I’m happy with the results. Most of my perennials get a good head start before she leafs out and once the summer gets hot, her shade is a blessing to every other living thing. Her leaves are mulched for the soil to eat. The more I observed, the more embarrassed I am that I spent a moment worrying about shade and greedy roots, neither are real issues. Nips and tucks are all thats required to check overly ambitious growth. Your Bluegrass Music is going to be spectacular if it’s anything like the photo. What a beauty.

      Good point. I really dislike the elm because of the seed and the constant job of weeding tree seedlings out of my yard. I have 6 large trees on a half lot downtown. And daylilies need 5-6 hours of sun to bloom. The other trees just need a trim.

        I rake all my Maple seeds and compost them in a barrel with brown sugar. They ferment for one week and make one of the best fertilizers and not one will sprout. In my case I only have the one tree and Maples drop all of them at once, so it’s manageable.

    I get over 80 45 gallon ba gs of leaves. I would not miss one tree. I work 45-50 hours a week, so such projects as composting probably won’t happen. Limited space, too. But that’s very cool what you are doing.
