Thanks Peter - these orchids love cooler temps...but not that cold!

Has it bloomed in the past year for you? If not, it needs more light.

Bloomed in spring/early summer. Was beautiful. Someone (here maybe?) recommended cutting the stem at the first knuckle, which I did. Its alive, but definitely not loving life...

Looks OK to me. They only bloom once every 9 months or so.

My long reach Echo hedge trimmer started making noise yesterday and then the blades stopped working although the engine was running. Turned out a small section of the planetary gear broke off. Fortunately I had a donor unit and was able to use the planetary gear from it.








Meanwhile my little squirrel friend kept extorting peanuts from me....he ended up with 6 of them before all was said and done. Persistent little bugger......

Red skin potato question - They are in a raised bed, and I haven't dug them up yet, but the ones breaking the surface are kinda green skinned. Internet suggests that these look funky but are ok to eat, as long as the flesh isn't green. Does this seem right? Last thing I want to do is arsenic poison everyone ...

Baz, we have been up to this spot up on Mt Mitchell many times and it is near impossible to get a good photo, as the rhodies are either pre-bloom, past-bloom, or it's raining and windy, or the light is all wrong.
This, of course, is not my photo. Someone gpt really lucky.

Got these 2 hoses today that I ordered from Amazon. I will be taking these over to Mom's tomorrow for her use. They seem like they would be something easy to use for her.

I learned that 'hearty mums' variety version will survive a Michigan Zone-5 winter if planted in the ground with drainage.
