Well, first things first, we fared Hurricane Matthew without incident, and we are thankful as we know that there were others that were not as lucky.
We got some winds but nothing terrible. A few smaller plants stalks cracked and toppled over but we were quick to get them replanted in the ground. Now, in the calm, we have been left with some gorgeous chilly weather, so of course we took advantage and got busy doing some Fall Planting.
Last week, a friend kindly sent us a care package of Huckleberry starts.
A Huckleberry, in case you didn’t know (I know I didn’t), is a relative of the Blueberry and produce a small, round, edible blue-black berry. They made the journey and, thankfully, arrived in perfect condition.
We also took advantage and replanted lots of Banana pups and some extra Moringa starts we had been nursing on our planting table.
The usual back breaking job of planting was a breeze with Hubby’s new handy-dandy Stand N’ Plant hand-held planter/transplanter. This thing is awesome! You just remove the start from it’s receptacle (in our case mostly recycled Solo Cups), stick the Stand N’ Plant into the spot you want to plant in, pull the trigger and shoot the plant down the tube.
We will be doing a full blog post about it and review soon.
