It takes more than a little snow to keep down those intrepid little guys!
Don't rye for me Argentina,The truth is I'm not done shoveling ...
I can't come up with any rye comments.
I believe that snow will blanket/insulate thus keeping plants at 32 F. It is the -2 F with a 30 mph wind coming in tonight that kills living plants not already gone dormant.
Why is there rye in the windowbox? What characteristics of rye suggest that the windowbox is the appropriate placement?
@ Original Mike: You kinda have to be a hort geek to get the joke.On the other hand, who can't appreciate a ch-ch-ch chia windowbox?
A joke, eh? So you're having fun at the expense of us rubes. (not that there's anything wrong with that).
"hort geek"Love it.
So what is Meade's recommendation for a beginning hort book?
You kinda have to be a hort geek to get the joke.I thought this was what you guys mean as a subtle hintabout the rye:-)
@Freeman, here's a good one to get you started:http://www.amazon.com/Right-Plant-Place-Indispensable-Successful/dp/0671523961I also got a lot out of this book:http://www.amazon.com/Victory-Garden-Landscape-Guide/dp/0316948462For woodies, the "bible:"http://www.amazon.com/Manual-Woody-Landscape-Plants-Characteristics/dp/0875637957/ref=pd_sim_b_1And serious hort geekdom:http://www.amazon.com/Horticultural-Science-Jules-Janick/dp/0716717425
Oh wow! I didn't know if you'd see my comment. Thanks!
Thank you Freeman for asking the question, and thank you Meade for giving the answer. Those are some great hort book ideas, and I've ordered a couple from Amazon.
