If you have a problem with Colorado potato beetles eating your crops – a mulch layer of hay or straw might help.
Branches & Twigs: Beauty & Function
Do other people see what I see in a pile of discarded branches and twigs? The possibilities of maximizing their beauty and function are only limited by my creativity, confidence and time.
In today's cool spring rain, I scored these branches from a tangled pile on the curb. I'll be supporting plants, building fences and yes, creating yet more Art for Art's Sake.
Like stones, branches reveal the depth of their beauty when wet.
I cut these larger branches a week back with the intention of using them to aid in corralling my tomatoes and tomatillos.
I cut these shorter branches for supporting my pepper plants.
I had this block. I had the twigs. I had a very bland wall of siding. Now I have art for art's sake.
Meanwhile, The Husband took this lovely photo of what I believe at a glance to be my new hyacinths. Drop dead gorgeous.
