Between raindrops, Will gets the tiller fixed — 6 Comments

  1. Beth,

    You can eat honeyberries fresh or make jam from them, just like blueberries. (And there’s always pie, tarts and other baked goods!). They usually begin bearing the year after planting or two years, tops, with good care. And they do grow quite quickly. By the way, a great source is honeyberryusa, online. They are a family company, right here in Minnesota!

  2. Now what do you do with the honeyberries??? Can you eat them raw, how long till they bear? Beth

  3. THANKS , lucky you 3 for $10 a bargin! I have divided this salvia a lot. It’s now in and around some pink (ornamental)sweet peas and black eyed susans and mixed in my ferns and near a bed of fairy roses, I just love them as here(east texas) they bloom well until it really hot and again in the fall. Best of all they are no fuss plants.
    I know you’re anxious to get in the garden, please go easy on the knee for a while, been there done that, TO SOON and sure regretted that to soon part.

  4. Laura,

    The flowers are prennials; May Night Salvia. I planted one last year and they had a special of 3 for $10 this week so I went for it. They increase nicely and are showy when other flowers are not so. I’m glad you dodged tornadoes. We have an occasional one here but they (usually) aren’t very big or strong. Too cold? I’m glad.

  5. Jackie, so glad you’re feeling better. I too could bring an entire garden center home and boy do I understand and appreciate spring rain, 2 1/2 inches last night. Tornados, hail and high wind all around us but fortunately no damage, just some limbs down you get snow and we get the other stuff.
    My silly question is , behind your honeyberry bushes there are some blue/purple spike flowers what are they? I have some very similar but can not remember what they are or where they came from. Thanks

  6. Congratulations are in order Miss Jackie, but I’m not sure which is more exciting…..the new calf and the milk or those wonderful plants !
