Not much on gardening. I find it easier to buy things at the store. The last few weeks, my local Walmart has been selling excellent fresh corn. Yes Walmart. I know, it boggles my mind too. I live by myself, so a garden doesn't make a lot of sense. Having said that, this year I planted two tomato plants in big pots, because I've yet to buy a good tomato at a store. I have very poor soil where I live so flower pots seemed like a good idea. I filled them with potting soil, compost, and steer manure. I've never seen a tomato grow that fast.
Mostly my agricultural efforts are devoted to my lawn, but again considering my poor soil, this has been no small undertaking. Where I've lived before, I threw down some seed and had a lawn, but I bought a new house with a crappy lawn, and I thought, "No problem. I'll just throw down some seed and fix that." Well, it didn't work. The end result was that I became obsessed with having a nice lawn. I spent money on fertilizers, lime, various sprays, and this and that, and got no where. I finally killed it all (over an acre) tractor tilled, hand pulled, sprayed, limed, and on and on. I was engaged in a war, and an expensive war. After 7 years (granted I tried to grow a lawn on the cheap for the first four), I've now got a golf course as of this spring. It's lovely, the best lawn I've had, but it's a lot of work, and my investment is now around two or three thousand dollars. I'm thinking after this summer, I might be able to slack off a little bit for a time.
My obsession and my war on my lawn has become a bit of a love affair, and I feel like I've accomplished at least one major thing about the landscaping. I've also planted greenery, which is doing OK. It's an improvement, but not the end all be all it could be. I have a friend who wants me to plant flowers, but I don't care about flowers. I want lots of green. I want to live in an ocean of chlorophyll.
