Welcome to my Gardening Blog.

In October of 2012 I moved from Anaheim CA to the Mojave Desert. So the older posts will reflect my gardening before the move, and my newer ones are after the move. Now that I have a huge yard and sandy soil (the opposite of what I had in Anaheim), I have to learn how to adapt.

Parsley, Apples and Chives

I just pulled the last of the radishes and beets out of the container. They weren't fit to eat so no love lost there. I replanted the pot with parsley and chives seeds. Then I covered it except for a few vent holes to keep stray cats away from it.

I got some tiny apples from the market and I've saved the seeds to sprout as an experiment. I know apples don't grow true to form, but you never know if you will stumble upon a new apple!  I saw a TV show on it once, how apples used to be bitter and were used for hard cider. But then prohibition happened and bitter apples fell out of popularity so the search was on for a great tasting sweet apple.

I also want to get to the nursery and pick up some daffodil bulbs and iris rhizomes. I think the daffodils will look great in the front flower bed and compliment the yellow roses.

I had one parsley plant that made it but not one of the chives sprouted, or they did and snails ate them.
