PNW Update

Here's a few recent pix from the Olympic Forest patch. I caught thumper eyeing the crop so I had to add some extra fencing. Despite the terrible climate this year I might get knee high by 7/4. BTW, Is it best to cull the sucker shoots?



When I cleared the bigger area this year I ran across several small fir seedlings and a couple four footers. I hated to destroy them although there are thousands around, so I decided to experiment with transplanting with the idea that if they make it I would pass them along to friends for their yards.




The weather wasn't very cooperative for my veggie beds so it looks like I'll just do the container gardening this year and be prepared for next year. I have begun gathering plans and materials for several elevated beds with cloches to extend the season next year. It will probably be the earliest and longest summer on record. Later
