We aren't the tropical equator down here, but the slugs I see are much smaller than the big honkers I grew up around in western Washington state.

I've been seeing a few of a pest called land planaria that apparently eat earthworms. I've seen them stuck to the undersides of bags of mulch. Best to bundle the whole thing up and throw it in the trash. If you squash it it comes back from all of the segments.

I had a feast of wild strawberries today!...well a small handful really, but at least they tasted better that the imported ones from the store.

And because its that time of year.....

My slug song

Mighty Hermaphroditey (To the Tune of the Beverly Hillbillies)

      Oh I'm mighty Hermaphroditey
      And I leave a slimey trail
      And I don't know how to tell
      My horny "head" from little "tail".
      But it doesn't really matter
      For each paramour I find,
      Slip-sliding down the garden path,
      Is also gender blind.

      Well that's the way we romp and play
      Yes, me and all my kin
      So kindly spare the salt and beer
      It's like to do us in
      And remember in the garden,
      When you see that silver line,
      Our speeds not slow, as swingers go
      Some think it's 69.

And because I don't know when to quit….

      The Banana Slug Song (To the tune of Chiquita Banana)

      I'm Hermita Banana and I've come to say
      We slugs swing in a special way
      Before el fresco dining on the doggy doo
      We Pulmonata Lumbada the whole night through
      You will find us in your garden
      We have the telescoping eye-ayes
      For Kamasu-ta-ra positions
      We would surely win the prize
      But Bananas like it cool not at the very, very tropical equator
      So check your Organic produce, in your refrigerator.

I sometimes steam my chard, but lately I've simply cut it into 1/2 inch wide strips and dropped it into whatever soup I'm fixing. And the stems are wonderful when used in place of celery if you're making soup or a stir fry.

Slugs! We set up a little "beer garden" last night and lured a few of the gastropod neighbors to their death (but at least they died happy!). I didn't get as many as I hoped. I suppose this is good--if they're not here. Something tells me they were just hiding (or eating my chard instead).

Rhubarb is also alive and well in Midcoast Maine as of two weeks ago when I harvested a batch. I still haven't made the time to bake the traditional rhubarb/custard pie. We really won't see much of anything else for a few more weeks.

The kitty gang has harvested one starling and at least one mole. I almost caught a woodchuck.

Feijoas. I'd never heard of them before. Interesting.

I baked my brains this morning to mow the front and side yards, but waited until evening to mow the back. With the new dog it was a family operation--rounding up the various by-products and chew toys before running the mower, then giving it a nice sprinkle afterward. The dog has about a 1/4 acre to run around on, a real nice size for her. I suspect my landscaping plans will be altered according to fencing necessities and durability of plant stock. Knock on wood, but I have a real pretty garden under my bedroom window, with white impatiens and various types of daylilies that she hasn't shown much interest in. Maybe the smell of the cedar mulch in the bed is enough to make it a little less appealing.

There are a few cherry tomatoes on my windowsill and I've seen some banana peppers humming along, ready to pick in a few days.

44 degrees 70 miles west/north/west of Donuel here on the Blue Ridge Mt but gonna be a sunny day... Man, we got the 2 1/2 welcome inches of rain as well and are happy to have it... Not as much as the gardens though....

Don't ask me to name all the Iris's but they are all in bloom and magnificent... I reckon we've got about a dozen differnt ones. My favorite one is the purple and white.... The rhodos are also in full bloom as are the Martha Hitchcock late blooming azaleas... The linten roses have turned into that soft pinkish white and are just lovely...
Also the Gibralter decisdious are in bloom as well as a few native North Carolina mountain azaleas we scavenfed a couple years ago from the P-Vine's sister's place outside of Boone....

We are taking another load of stuff down to Luray today where a good portion of the garden is and will see if there's anything I missed down (up?) there...

Glad to hear that the Solomon's Seal is happy, Jeri... When it's happy, it's real happy... If yer soil ain't acidic 'nuff mulch them with a bunch of composed oak leaves.... That's like akin' Slomon Seal out to dinner.... Same with Linten Rose hellibore....

MMario, The banana tree is from the mountains of northern Japan. It is being sold in great quantities in the US this season. At Logee's they are about $10 each while Home Despot sells them for $20.
I bet you are right that they may be some kind of plantain vs. a fruit of instant gratification.

THIS MORNING IT IS 38 degrees F here. But there is a mist through the trees with sun beams tracing rays to new growth that are rehreshed from a 2.5 inch rainfall yesterday.

The pool is still a warm 80 degrees retaining its heat from last weekend under its solar blanket. If I took the blanket (glorified bubble wrap) off it would be steaming like crazy.

If I dressed warm I could take some pictures today.
The average temperature for today should be 77 but will again fall short.

Pauline, then get yourself a nice big pot and put it on your doorstep and make sure that whatever you put in it is healthy and pretty and going to help soothe your gardener's soul.

BWL, I wondered if you'd remember that those blueberries were due from 2007.

Been out tearing down a section of duplicate fencing, and in this case, it's old and full of carpenter ants. I must repair a portion of it in the morning before it gets too hot. My chard looked a tad wilted this afternoon when it was 95 out there.

Harvesting lots of Squat this year... Both the Diddledee-Squat and Doodley-Squat varieties.

Both of my vegetable gardening plots, each consisting of about twenty 4'x8' raised beds, still have large trees lying in them courtesy of Hurricane Ivan. The time we usually budget for gardening has gone into storm cleanup this spring.

But, on the flip-side, the hundreds of wild blueberry bushes on our property are loaded like I've never seen them before. We're getting a few early bloomers so far, but the peak is still a month to six weeks away.

I am trying lovage again - haven't had any luck with it on three previous attempts.

My lavender has currently gone 3 years without winterkill - a record!

burdock is a volunteer (grin!) but since a selected strain of burdock is the "gobo" of oriental cooking I have been known to dig and cook
it.

I do have sucess with chives and garlic chives!


Sage keeps dieing off on me, likewise my creeping thymes.

lemon balm my B-I-L curses me for every year - I brought home one sprig 30+ years ago - and we rip it out by armfulls every year now. Likewise the sedum acre that I brought home one cutting of roughly the same time.

and the tarragon overwintered!

A coloquial term I use for the collecting of trivia is my "brain lint filter."

There are some wonderful cooking bananas available in the marketplace these days. Some of them sweeten when cooked, others go through a couple of steps (i.e., plantain or platanos) of being cut up, fried, soaked in salt water, dried, squashed, and fried again. Or some combination thereof. It has been years since I cooked any of it but it comes out tasting more like fries or hashbrowns.

rhubarb reverts to type quite easily. I've known that to happen to several people who transplanted offshoots. Or - if he lets his rhubarb flower you may have got a seedling rather then a division - in which case it is much more likely to be green. (rhubarb doesn't breed true)

My rhubarb was described as 'bright red stalks' by the bloke I bought it from. When it came up green I mentioned it to him and he was surprised enough to refund my money (all $2) He'd forked the roots off his own 'bright red-stalked' plant. Someone told me they go red at the end of the season but ... they don't. Bit of a mystery. Stay tuned.

Metchosin - The Garden Path Nursery had great reports on it's black tomato varieties. It's off West Saanich Road if you're in town soon they have losts of plants (and advice).

My rhubarb is prolific, but green. I'm going to buy a red stalked plant but I heard the colour might be more to do with my soil than the plant - anyone know if tyhis is the case? I need red rhubarb for a halibut recipe I got from Sooke Harbour House. You sit a chunk of very fresh halibut in blenderized rhubarb overnight and it cures it. The slices are beautifully pink on the outside and white within.

Donuel - if it is a musa (banana) and it fruits -the fruit should be edible - but may require cooking - and possibly may be considered "inedible" if it is one of the rare forms that contain seeds. As far as I know none of the bananas or plaintains are actually inedible - though some are not very tasty.

the flower buds of bananas can be steamed or boiled or roasted or baked as well. (Guess I should have just said "cooked")
