deers - 1:51 p.m. 10/22/2009
And what can I use or hang or whatever to stop the deer from eating the buds and tender shoots off my rose bushes? They come by about every two weeks and eat off the edible leaves, etc., and I have no roses at all to enjoy = help!

tomatoes - 4:30 p.m. 9/28/2009
Our tomatoes are doing fine BUT when they are picked and ripe, the skins are very tough to eat. Friends also have this problem, what can we do next year to improve the skin so it is edible and we do not hav to peel them every time??

First big tomatos - 9:16 p.m. 8/7/2009
I just got a very nice red ripe beefsteak tomato from my garden. I also got a yellow one and have been getting little round orange ones for a couple of weeks now. The orange ones are about the size of a golf ball and are fully ripe. They don't get red at all.The yellow ones are about the size of an apple and are yellow when ripe. All of them tasty!

Volunteers at the garden - 3:34 p.m. 5/20/2009
Several volunteers worked to install irrigation pipes at the Woodland Community Garden on May 20, 2009. Special recognition and thank you to Max Halberg of Northwest Electric. Dennis Ripp went to Max's business place (Northeast Electric 360.225.7004) to enquire about renting a ditch digger. "If it is for the Community Garden I will be happy to come over and do the work for you." Max replied. That is the Woodland Community Spirit in action. Thanks to all that help. http://www.lewisriver.com/woodland/gardening/community/

Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge - 9:59 a.m. 5/16/2009
Ridgefield NWR manages four sites, one in the Roth Unit and three on Bachelor Island. Although there are many martins to fully populate the gourds that are hung up each year, few find their way to the Auto Tour Route on the River “S.” Sometimes one or two can be seen on the Kiwa Trail. Keep your eyes open for these large, dark purple swallows.


This is Migration time. A number of unusual/rare sightings have been seen over the last month on the River “S” Unit. Following is a list of some of them: Blue-winged Teal, Redhead, Eared Grebe, American White Pelican, Black Swift, Nashville Warbler, Black-throated Gray Warbler, Pacific-slope Flycatcher, and Greater White-fronted Goose. Some of the other not-so-common birds seen were the Anna’s Hummingbird, Orange-crowned Warbler, Townsend’s Warbler, Wilson’s Warbler, Yellow Warbler, Peregrine Falcon, Vaux’s Swift, and Bullock’s Oriole.

This is a beautiful time at the refuge. Why don’t you come and enjoy that beauty?

Mason Bees - 9:48 p.m. 4/20/2009
The mason bees are starting to nest at my house. They're the very noisy critters that look like a large fly, and are busy climbing into any crevice that's available (they love the seep holes for my windows.)

If you put out nesting tubes with straws inside them last spring, it's time to take out the straws and replace them with new ones.

If you've never had mason bees I'd be happy to send you a one-page writeup about them that I did for the Ridgefield Garden Club. They are very active pollinators and do a world of good for our plants.

Nesting tubes and straws may be purchased at either of the Shorty's Nurseries. Bird's Nursery has nesting blocks, but no tubes or straws.

Happy Gardening!
