Seedling Camp

Posted by Jake on 11 June, 2009

I have planted more seeds yesterday and I needed to find a spot to place them. I put them on the side that doesn’t get full day sun, but stays warm until night from the heat of the sunlight that was there.  It is like the heat just tsays trapped where the houses are so close together. I put them there because nothing is there and I already have the Windmill Palm seeds in that area. I have more stuff I will put over there in pots later on and I have plenty of room for it.

The seeds that I planted were Palmettos seeds from an unknown source(I can’t remember where I got them), Palmetto seeds from St. Augustine, Blue Fescue Grass, and Daylily ‘Yangtze'(from a seed pod I took from a Wal-Mart plant). We will see how these do.


8 days until I Go To Kentucky!

Sea Shells

Posted by Jake on 29 January, 2009

Last week I got the idea that eventually either here in Florida, but more than likely in Kentucky since I possibly may move back, that I want to build an artificial “Beach Scene” in my landscape. That leads me to last Saturday when I went to the beach and collected a ton of sea shells.  I have family that live in Hiton Head, SC and they told us two years ago that you get the best and most prettiest shells during the winter months. I now can confirm this; I found some of the biggest shells I have ever seen. I even found the awesome twisty shells that you normally only see in beach gift shops that aren’t normally even real shells. Once I got home I cleaned them out with water and let them dry overnight. So, here is my 14 pounds of shells, yed I did weigh them!

It looks like we will have cooler weather move instarting tomorrow, thank God! I can take last week anyday, but what it has been since Sunday, hot and humid, it is hard for me to take. Looking on the radar just  a minute ago it looks like we will be getting some rain here in the nextr few hours. I think the rain is suppose to stick around through tomorrow night. Thursday nigh through Friday they are predicting more rain for us here on the First Coast, not as much as this system right now. We also are expecting a huge storm with very heavy rain  and possibly severe winter here in Florida I think begining Monday.

Today I started the fowllowing seeds: Moonflower, Red Texas Star Hibiscus, White Texas Star Hibiscus, Hyacinth Vine, Castor Bean, Asparagus Fern, Blue Fescue Grass, and Hibiscus cannabinus ‘Purple’. Wish me luck on those seeds!

Have a great day,


16 days until Valentine’s Day!
