Huge bush

On Sunday I tamed some of the out of control garden, like this rose bush. Apparently it's from (e:paul)'s nonna's house?

It reached the second floor. I like the look of the roses when it has them but it's too big. Next target, butterfly bush, after the bees are done with the flowers.

We walked downtown with (e:chris) and (e:mike). Main Street is too busy for (e:mike) now.

First we stopped at the Soda Jerk store in the 500 block. The milkshake I had was pretty good. They also were trying out a loganberry IPA float that was not so good.

On the walk down to Canalside we saw this sign advertising poloroid rental. I didn't even know they made that film anymore.

Garden

(e:terry) and I worked on the garden for hours last Sunday and planted all of the botanical garden flowers we got.

It's like summer already. The backyard is a ton of work but I think I actually enjoyed it today. Call the gardening club, I'm an old man.

We were able to use a ton of our compost from the Farmer Pirates, who take our compost.

Garden prep

I spent my Friday off working on the back garden. Clearing beds and pulling weeds is like dehoarding outside. I actually don't mind it.

Anyway we still need to get rid of more wood. I put it on craigslist free but if nobody takes it I think I might just cut it up and throw most of it out.

Solar powered drying. These blankets could use some sun-disinfectant.
image

The one raised bed is falling apart. We're going to have to put it back together
image

I think I want to use this hill as a raised bed too. Now that Basra is gone he can't stomp through and eat anything being grown there.

Afterwards (e:paul) and I went on a bike ride out to Hoyt Lake.

At night we were going to this rave at Iron Works, but the music didn't sound so great for $20 a person. Instead we walked around downtown. The so called cobblestone district had more people than I thought. And it wasn't just the casino. We ended up at Ballyhoo for a few beers. Too overpriced and fancy but they did have an amazing vegetarian sausage.

The last snow pile in Buffalo.

Still a vegan at heart, right (e:paul)?

Farmer Paul

A week away from the garden let it go absolutely cray. The arugula is out of control and super-spice.

Haircuts for trees

(E:Paul) took the buch at the corner of our house and shaped it into a tree by tying it together with twine. Combined with the hacking we did on the holly bush, the front of our hose is naked now. It's strange to see the stone underneath the windows now.

More garden murder

We spent a whole lot more time gardening. (e:terry) and I finished the new garden bed on the hump and (e:paul) finished murdering the wisteria. I woodchipped 5 bags of thorny rosebush and wisteria. I wanted to murder a rosebush of my own by the end.

(e:terry) had made a nice cheesy soup so (e:yesthatcasey) and (e:uchina) joined us for dinner after.

Back to the botan

We went down to the botanical gardens again with (e:mike), (e:libertad) and (e:yesthatcasey). I always feel like I've taken pictures of everything there and posted them already but I took more anyway. It's hard not to.

I really liked the cacti this time. This one is actually really tiny but if you put your phone in the pebbles it's like you're in some sort of crazy desert.

Paul got pricked somehow?

and the lieblings orchid.

The absolutely best part was Farmer's brown animal show (or whatever it was called) in the back shed.

Look at these buddies.

So freaking cute. I almost want a chicken now.

At the end of the trip we went around to Lackawanna to go to Mulberrys. It was expensive but super delicious. Lackawanna is building a million new homes in the vacant burned out section near Bethlehem Steel. Why?

Big zucchini, baby carrots

They run the gamut for (e:paul).

The garden is getting so amazing.

Blueberry picking

After swimming at the cabin, we headed over to a nearby blueberry farm to pick some berries. It was only $1 a pound, so of course we got 15 pounds. (e:paul) and (e:terry) had never been picking before.

Not sure what we're going to do with them yet but it's going to be delicious. Pie? Jam? They're ridiculously good.

Himbeeren

(or raspberries) is what I thought these were. But they're really just unripe blackberries. I'm glad Paul told me before I tried to eat them. There's a ridiculous amount of them on the blackberry bush, I can't wait for them. Not so many blueberries but the ones that are ripe are huge.

The garden looks so colorful right now. Apparently we are a Buffalo in Bloom garden, whatever that entails.
