I know that most of you reading this blog are either enamored with my elegant prose or are interested in vegetable gardening. Still…some of you might be a little bit interested in lawns, weeds, or ornamental plant topics. (I have no idea why, but you might have a reason.) If that is the case, I’d like to point you toward a new blog started by the K-State Turfgrass folks.
Some of their recent posts that might be of interest:
- Corn Gluten Meal (a fertilizer and organic weed control product)
- Late Fall Fertilizer (the benefits of fertilizing fescue in November)
- Upcoming Emerald Ash Borer & Thousand Canker Trainings and Rust-a-Rama (Some pics of cedar apple rust, hawthorn rust, and info on a couple of emerging tree problems in Kansas)
- April is Kansas Healthy Yards and Communities Month (by proclamation of the governor – so yeah, I had completely forgotten about posting anything about this on the blog. So go to the link and read all about it if you’re interested.)
I know there are a lot more interesting local garden bloggers out there than just the few I’ve stumbled across. Here’s one of the blogs I follow from a local gardener: Gaia Garden. She’s been on something of a winter hiatus (and just plain busy!), but she’s been back posting in the past couple weeks, with some very thought-provoking (or hilarious) posts. Here’s a sample:
Waste Not, Want Not – Gaia Gardener talks about the amount of food we waste. I think I do pretty good with this, but I know there is some rancid celery in the refrigerator.
Confessions of a Plant-a-Holic – We’ve all been there, right? Caught ordering too many plants or seeds, then stuck unable to get them into the ground?
A Scary Thought – Gaia Gardener takes a look at aphid reproduction…You know you want to click through to see this post!
So head on over to Gaia Garden and check out another local garden blog!
