Good morning everyone,
Another cold, but bright morning here in The Netherlands.
Not much gardening on the web today.
Making it Grow has uploaded a new episode. Don't think it's much about gardening this week though, judging by the description...
Our special guest is Samantha McDowell from The Clemson Food Safety & Nutrition Team who shows us healthy cooking tips with coconut oil. Our feature segment is a trip to Abingdon Manor in Latta, S.C. where the head chef along with Burundi refugees living in the area create some eggplant dishes.
And Kaffee oder Tee has a clip about peperomias. Many of them make lovely houseplants.
Try to keep warm, and have a lovely day!
Hi Ginger 2,
Amazing how many useful stuff you can find on the internet.
I hope the video I found yesterday has some useful tips for you.
What a nuisance that you can't get the toolbar to work!
No idea if there is a way to get it to work. I usually visit the forum through my PC, and it always works well for me.
Still cold here, but fortunately no snow yet, and supposed to get warmer during the weekend. Roll on spring!
I hope the heat is bearable in your neck of the woods and that your begonias aren't suffering too much. Mine don't like very hot weather, unless I make sure they are in absolute shade.
Have a lovely day!
Slightly less cold here than the last few days, and fortunately no snow or black ice yet.
Here is today's harvest from the web.
The Backyard Farmer has the following...
This week's program focuses on fall ornamentals like asters, militant switchgrass.
Oklahoma Gardening is mainly about turf this week.
This episode covers how to calibrate a seed spreader, steps to over-seed tall fescue, identification of summer and winter weeds in turf areas, establishing Bermudagrass from seed and tips for controlling winter broadleaf weeds.
ZDF's Volle Kanne has a clip about bromeliads.
And Kaffee oder Tee looks at the different types of beans you can grow in the garden.
Interesting to see the old variety Saxa in the picture.Those are dwarf French beans which grow on little bushes, and don't climb, and they are an early variety. I've been growing them for many years to get a small crop quite early in the season, yummie!
Have a great day!
Good morning everyone,
A bit late, because the internet disappeared suddenly while I was working.
And we've got freezing fog here at the moment, brrrr.
Here is today's harvest though.

Kaffee oder Tee has a clip about looking after the garden in winter when there is snow.

ZDF has two old episodes on a garden make-over show on its site again.
They are from last year. and I'm pretty sure I mentioned them at the time.

Keep warm, and have a lovely day!
Still cold, but no fog today here.
This is what I managed to find on the web...

Far less cold than it has been recently here and nice and bright.
