SW Idaho matted weed identification

in Euphorbia
by Radishrain • | | 0 comments
I think it's some kind of Euphorbia similar to Euphorbia serpens, Euphorbia prostata and Euphorbia maculata, but is seems to grow flatter with smaller, rounder leaves than those (maybe you can't tell its flat tendancy now, with the rain we've had). It's one of the most drought-tolerant p...read more

My grapefruit tree is budding after 24 to 29 years (first time)

in Grapefruit
by Radishrain • | | 2 comments
I've had a grapefruit tree for 24 to 29 years. I planted it as a seed. I planted several others, which sprouted, but they got something like mealybugs and all of them died, except this one (which became free from the pest after a while). We use my tree as a houseplant. It's never been outside...read more

Alpine strawberries as air freshener

in Alpine Strawberry
by Radishrain • | | 2 comments
Apparently, as I discovered some minutes ago, Reine Des Vallees alpine strawberries make great air freshener. I'm sure other breeds would, too. All I did was put a few fruits (many of them were already dry) in a bowl in a warm room for several hours. This is one way they could have a long-las...read more

Alexandria alpine strawberry

in Alpine Strawberry
by Radishrain • | | 6 comments
Alexandria is a pretty cool alpine strawberry. It's the easiest one to grow from seed that I've tried, and germinates abindantly. The flavor is good. Critters probably eat it more than Yellow Wonder. I have several Alexandria strawberry plants in the garden—some out the front by the flowers, ...read more

Yellow Wonder alpine strawberry

in Alpine Strawberry
by Radishrain • | | 0 comments
I've had Yellow Wonder strawberries since 2016. It's a nice variety. It fruits and grows well. Germination hasn't been as abundant or as quick as Alexandria, but it's still about as long as some tomatoes. These are fruits I harvested, today. They're the first strawberries of the season, actua...read more

Does anyone know what vegetable ผักแขนง (as used in Thailand) refers to, in English? Wikipedia redirects to the cabbage article, but I hear it refers to a small, brussels sprouts kind of thing.

2020 alpine strawberries with leafhoppers

in Alpine Strawberry
by Radishrain • | | 1 comment
The variegated grape leaf hoppers came out really early, this year, but not on the grapes (which still had a while before they grew any leaves at the time: they're starting to grow leaves now, however). They're on most of the species of plants! They only ever seemed to feast on grape leaves in p...read more

Stendesto

in Plum

Stendesto is a cross between a Stanley plum (a European plum—not the usual Japanese plum species used in these interspecific crosses) and a Modesto apricot. It has the same number of chromosomes as an apricot. https://bnr.bg/en/post/100167697/bulgarian-scientists-created-new-fruit I'd be h...read more

Hardy to zone 4. 6 to 8 feet tall (or 8 to 10 feet tall depending on which part of the page you look at). 3 to 5 pounds of fruit...read more

in Bush Cherry

https://onegreenworld.com/product/juliet-bush-cherry/ This one looks promising, as it's supposed to be very sweet, and have fruit as large as regular cherries. It's also very cold-hardy (to zone 3), and it's self-fertile. Said to produce 10-15lbs of fruit. It says it's Prunus fruticosa x Pru...read more

My mom got a Chabacano nectarine tree, today. I don't know anything much about the breed. So, one moment while I search. Welp, I found nothing, except that Chabacano is a Spanish word for apricot, and for some other stuff. It's not an apricot tree; so, I'm hoping it's not a Spanish word for n...read more

Adding lemon oil to dishsoap

in Lemon
by Radishrain • | | 0 comments
Adding lemon oil to dish soap makes it so much better, in my opinion—and it makes the soap stay smelling fresher longer. It helps the dishes get squeaky clean, and smell/feel good. IMO (or according to my nose), dish soap goes bad when exposed to certain things long enough (probably mold, yea...read more

Nasturtians have lots of flavor and contain vitamin D?

in Nasturtian
by Radishrain • | | 0 comments
This article about the edible qualities of nasturtians says that they contain vitamin D. That's a rare claim when it comes to reading about plants, in my experience. The only other plant I know where someone has made the claim about it is the Cape Gooseberry ground cherry ; of course, the amount...read more
