what you gonna grow for this season part 2

ok today i give barrels a look. dead worms in the
water on top of barrels. so i took the bags off.
was many worms on the tops. also down side of barrel.
glad i thought about it. all the worms would be dead by
spring. i asked my bro to get me a sheet of plywood.
2'x2' pieces will work. i hope he gets to it soon. lots of
rain. so i want them covered. i did not take a photo
because it is pouring outside.

hate when that happens
the intolerance of the old order is emerging from the rosy mist in which it has hitherto been obscured.

been thinking as always is a curse. :crazy:

anyway the barrels getting waterlogged.
i drilled 1/2" holes on bottom of them.
there lies my problem i think. barrels are on cement.
so as they get heavy seals bottom. also the soil is
clay like so would self seal. made me think of a planter
pot. has 4 drain holes on bottom on sides. inch or so for
a 3 gallon pot. i now have a plan. i dug up a 2 1/4" hole saw.
i will drill 4 holes around bottom of each barrel. that should
do the trick. when weather lets me. then for the tops i asked
my bro to cut me some plywood squares to put on top for
winter time. he has not got to it yet. but i had a idea i will
drill a 1 1/4" hole in center of each piece. then i will go get
some 1" pvc pipe and 5 caps. will cut the pvc into 2' pieces
put a cap on 1 end. then set plywood on barrel poke the pvc
down middle. so i do not have to stack bricks on them for wind.
had 2 frost's so will harvest a bunch of carrots soon. the leaf
lettuce in greenhouse does not look happy. will see how that goes.

autumn has been really mild and the wildflower seeds have germinated and have grown into small plants, they will die though when it gets really cold. might have to buy more seeds in spring, because of it being so mild this time of the year..

Having kind of the same problem, my daffodils have started to sprout a little. But their bulbs and can be buried under snow and just resume in spring thaw. Usually by this time of year a snowstorm ot two, but just rain so far.

Life. Just add Water.
