garden meet garden procrastinator

I started off the gardening week quite zealously. I opened up the fern farm and rehomed close to 30 rather large ostrich ferns. Not literally a fern farm but the ferns have exploded this spring and I had to thin them out. I still have more to thin out but these will get dug into the woods.

I also will have to thin out some native daylilies. They also have exploded. This layered gardening stuff is hard work. I love it, don’t misunderstand me, but sometimes a gardener needs to take a break.

This week I also had to deal with seedling city. It was time to stop avoiding them and pot them up. I will be rehoming some chili peppers and tomatoes. I have never had so many seedlings! I tried this growing system from Gardener’s Supply Company. Well it worked really well!!!

So today it was rainy and damp most of the day, and I lallygagged around the house. I had grand plans for weeding and planting today… and did not really do anything.

Well tomorrow is another day. Tomorrow I weed. I can’t procrastinate it away any longer. The weeds are mostly Bishop’s Weed or gout weed. I do battle with it every year. It’s one of those things I can’t believe people thought it was great ground cover once upon a time.

Happy gardening!


  1. You have a beautiful garden. My Ostrich Ferns are struggling on a steep, shady slope. I planted 3 and one succumbed, but two are hanging on.

    I am a terrible procrastinator. I have a huge section of Black-eyed Susans (Rudbeckia Goldstrum) that I wanted to divide this spring. I did manage to get 3 clumps replanted, but not the rest. Now I think it is too late and I will have to wait until the fall to divide them. Oh well, at least the weather will be cool then………
