Gardening

I am out at Montauk again this weekend to fertilize and spray for deer. It’s the stinkiest thing ever! I have to tell you, things are shooting out of the ground by the minute. I cannot wait for summer! Sorry to keep talking about it, but I’m just so excited! Have you all been gardening?

Go online to the New York Times’ Food section. There are some wonderful food recipes like the crispy duck salad, which I will give a try today.

Happy Sunday everyone.

    Please share what you use to spray for deer. One year they ate ALL the tops of my flowers off!
    Just for fun a wild turkey showed up by my back door wall with all is back feathers up. Very pretty but he was huge and it kind of freaked me out for a second.

  • Well I have to say I love the deer in my area, of course they have completely taken over other parts of the city. The geese are my problem here and they are protected, whilst eating flowers and foliage to their hearts content!

    I have a new post up I think you will enjoy!

  • I’m in California and our gardening season starts about February. So, we’re well into it by now (yeah!) Everything is blooming and lovely, the bees are buzzing, the birds are chirping and my potatoes are sprouting so fast, you can practically see them grow. Can’t wait to start havesting. Happy Sunday to you as well

  • YES, GARDENING IS MY ALL TIME FAVORITE ACTIVITY TO DO….
    IT FEED THE SOUL AND I COULD NOT IMAGINE BEING INT HE CITY ALL THE TIME AND NOT BEING ABLE TO GARDEN EVEN THOUGH ONE CAN CONTAINER GARDEN OR EVEN DO THE “FRENCH INTENSIVE METHOD”….
    ONE LEARNS HOW TO SEE THE WORLD IN A DIFFERENT WAY WHEN ONE HAS TO TEND A PLANT AS YOU LEARN TO STEP OUT OF ONES SELF AND FEEL ANOTHER THING THAT NEEDS YOUR LOVE AND ATTENTION… IF ONLY WE COULD DO THAT WITH OTHERS CONSISTENLY…

    No gardening this weekend. The lawn is cut, the euonymus border trimmed, the Red Harvest Maple that I pruned on its south side is taking a symmetrical shape. When I complete our interiors, I’ll plant something that blooms white. Any suggestions?

    I took a walk around downtown St Louis Saturday before meeting my son to watch the (20 inning!) Cardinals – Mets game. There is a new high-rise condo project of concrete and curtain wall with long decks and a terrific modern plaza across from the recently renovated Beaux Arts Old Post Office. And more historic warehouses have been renovated as condos. So our downtown is being transformed from a business center into an urban neighborhood, which feels much like a springtime rebirth!

    The wagon train finally brought copies of HB to St Louis, and it made my weekend to see your perfect project. You may not have a cure for cancer, but you sure can “cure a depression on the heart” as an old Irish folk song says. – Gary
