|Chelle..... Did you want me to start making hugelkultur beds right away? I was thinking very nice how your beds look than in early afternoon I heard a giant thump. I looked out front door and back and didn't see where thankfully another big tree branch had fallen and especially not on my van.
We've had branches and leaves coming all down from the high winds and the rain for days, but when I looked out immediate areas looked ok. Figured it was just probably another neighbor who had something fall down
That was until I went out later evening to check the mail. I was busy looking at my tomato plants as I went by and the new critter tunnels heading to that area across the driveway and wasn't really paying attention to where my feet was walking til I about stumbled.
Right smack across the driveway was a big Oak tree that had come down. My first thought was Chelle, is this a hint.
Trapped me right in the yard. I don't have the strength to lift a chain saw so had to call a friend in town to come help so I could get out or emergency vehicle in. His saw was electric and while he brought a 100 foot cord it wouldn't reach to the outdoor electric sockets so he put a big rope on it and slowly dragged it up the hill out of the way.
When he got done, I was telling him about your hugelkultur beds and we started laughing. I told him , " I'll have to Chelle the first pieces of wood on the one hill in place now." I'm ready for you to finish the rest of it for me.
I don't remember off hand who all it was that wanted some of the Surprise/Spider lilies. I went out and had a few plants left that had done bloomed and were starting to disappear back into the ground. I pulled the semi-dried top off of one and gently opened up what looked like a tiny seed pod. Inside I did find some seeds. They look like tiny white grains of salt.
I picked the rest of the heads I found and have them drying now. I'll put them up on my database, so add them to your Wish list. I won't consider them a oink since I don't know if they will grow or not. The friend who moved my downed tree last night may still have some bulbs drying at his place. If he does, he'll give them to me and I'll post em.
