The Growth Within

Discussion in 'Gardening' started by The Gorn, Dec 16, 2017.

  1. Frustration over not being able to work my true passion (and redemption) outdoors, I found unexpected peace and blissful distraction by applying myself to ornamental and flowering shrubbery to brighten the yard. An unwillingness to let go of fading stars and a desire to approach next year with a roar motivated my purchase of a large walk in greenhouse which proved insufficient to accommodate all. An additional hoop house built with PVC still wasn't enough but a remarkably spacious hexagonal unit managed to fill the bill. Compulsion for symmetry which I realize is a stressful part of my nature isn't really much of a priority in the mechanics of life; sadly I still attempt to arrange efforts to at least balance like with like.

  6. Nice flowers! Are you growing anything to eat?

  7. Goji, blackberry, raspberry, blueberry, and strawberry are more for entertainment than harvest for a season or two. Several tomatoes should bear fruit this year though.

  10. Curious color shift from one of the pansies; yellow accent has become the dominant hue on the latest flowering from one of my dark blues.

  11. Didn't intend to overlook your question - Alabama. My particular frustration in working outdoors is the limited full Sun offered in my yard; part of what motivates the continual reconfiguration of efforts to spread the benefits. Hard clay based soil makes putting things in ground much more work than I honestly have in me most days. The whole ordeal here began to Winter my wife's seed grown lemon trees that brought unintended pest inside with them a few years back. The larger hoop style greenhouse in back was only $29 and the hexagonal model in front about $34; I like that the smaller one has shelving that really maximizes space but that my yard isn't level and it gives the appearance of leaning drives my OCD up the wall. The OCD is the other motivator in the displays of varied shapes and shades.
