Cold weather fizzled this weekend.
Snow on a lot of the low passes.
Haskap or honeysuckle buds really pushing.
Garlic now 8-10 inches tall.
Daffodils - 8 inches tll, no flower buds yet.
One big apple tree to prune.
Many pruning classes still, go the OSU Lane
Co Extension web site for pruning claasses
and upcoming Sustainable landscape
classes in mid April.
Cold in the AM again, so peas can
be considered but........
Spring bloomers blooming.
Tulips and daffi's showing flower buds.
The more I look, the more massive the
moss is this year (actually he wetness
of the last three going n four wet springs.)
Great article on local foods, about
Camas Country grain and flour.
More good pre garden weather.
Lots more pruning classes.
Many great gardening classes going on around
Oregon and especially in Lane County.
Photina - lots of leaf spot so use copper
to clean up and clean the new tissue.
Weather is leaning toward time to work outside. Finish pruning, clean up pruning sticks. Lawns still in a rest stage but not for much longer. Get weed sunder control in the garden and raised beds. Chard still doing well. Start indoor seedlings in the next month. Take a trip to the nearby ski hills. Visit warmer climate, spring is coming soon!
Weather is getting better.
Still need to kind of wait until
after Feb.15th to plant.
To start indoor/transplants plants,
plant about 45 days
before they need to go outside. Remember
however that the last three years it has
been July before we could plant outside.
After mowing n November, the lawn
still does not need mowing but check weekly.
Weather above 50 degrees, we gain degree days.
Everyday above 50 degrees F.,brings us closer
to plants starting to grown aggressively again.
Garlic up over 7 inches, flower bulbs up 2-3
inches. Leafy cole crops still doing fine.
