Actually not many plants have distinctive male and female plants. Flowers, yes. Many do. But not whole plants.

Anyhow, I got a couple today when I went to get a load of manure. I usually get 3 or 4 loads a year and stockpile it for a year before using it. This year I may get more because my stockpile is depleted more than usual. Each load is 5 cubic yards.

So, back to the Kiwi. I got a Vincent (the female) and Tomuri (male). The male plant produces the fruits. I have a large nursery pot for a tree that I am planting them both in, and they will be espalier.

Here's my dump trailer getting loaded with composted horse manure.

Onion sets are starting to green. Radishes and turnips are almost an inch high. Potatoes planted but not up yet. Broccoli, cauliflower, and cabbages are transplanted and starting to take off.

My wife and sister-in-law keep a garden going year round. Sister-in-law is 67. She will typically log 4-6 hours a day in it, a lot of which is on her hands and knees. I call her my Tater Queen, lol. Here she is with a zucchini from last year:

Melons and blacberries:

Spent much of the weekend stockpiling composted horse manure. Now have 20 cubic yards in the stockpile, with an additional 5 or 10 yards ready to use.

Multiply by .03937. So a metric s$$#load would be comparatively less than a standard s%$# load.

Heavy frost this morning. I want to plant more but I gotta wait.

1/4 of the garden tilled...

Garlic is doing quite well, so far it looks like I lost about a third of my bed due to late winter construction.

100 white onions planted today, 200 to go

Maters are a foot tall in my living room. Need the weather to break so they can go into the garden.

Guess I'm going to be creating a separate raised bed for asparagus and strawberrys.
