Almost Spring

Category: Ed's Balcony Garden | Posted: Sat Mar 17, 2018 12:21 am

Did I tell you people that I hate this Winter.
This is the longest period of wind and I hope it ends.
Now for the new news that next week we are expecting ANOTHER Nor-easterner that makes 4 of them in 1 week.
One good thing was the moving of the houseplants except the Aloa Vera which requires a fork lift as it weighs a ton.
The keets are of course acting up as they don't want to be quiet and it gives me a head ache.

Another week is over and junk coming

Category: Ed's Balcony Garden | Posted: Sun Mar 11, 2018 8:24 pm

Hi friends from a sunny NJ.
I think I ask questions no body likes.
Today is nice outside and you know who is outside getting a little feather burn.
I might as well because we have our 3rd Nor easter coming tomorrow night.
going to try to plant some seeds if I can find good potting soil.

1 Day Storm

Category: Ed's Balcony Garden | Posted: Thu Mar 08, 2018 1:14 am

Friends it started around 7:30 this morning and lasted till 6PM.
Keets had fun and are fast asleep and we even had Thunder snow.
Now the only thing to worry about is the wind that is growing.

More Snow and a problem

Category: Ed's Balcony Garden | Posted: Wed Mar 07, 2018 12:13 am

Well friends its been a week and now another snow storm.
Thank goodness I was out today and did all I needed to do so I will be inside keeping warm.
All the years I went to school I never remember the schools closing of the school but most of the schools have already closed for snow.
Now for my problem is I can't keep flowers alive and I think its because I either don't water them enough or too much.
Do you have ideas on who to correct this.

Welcome to the sidewise snow in NJ

Category: Ed's Balcony Garden | Posted: Sat Mar 03, 2018 1:14 am

The morning was to bad and went to the store and then the temp started to drop.
By 1 PM it was snowing and by 2 couldn't see across the parking lot and all the time the Keets wanted to go out and visit with the wild birds on the balcony.
The Keets forget its cold out but after 10 seconds they remembered quickly.
That all changed after 2 hours with a repeat.
They are finally in bed and asleep and I will be there shortly.

What a Day

Category: Ed's Balcony Garden | Posted: Thu Mar 01, 2018 3:57 am

Well friends its been a crazy day today as I was awake at 5 AM yep 5AM by the keets (my kids).
A baby mouse wanted something to eat but it never expected the birds in the cage.
My job is turn on a light uncover the cage and talk to my babies.
Then had to mop the bedroom and reload the mouse trapes as it seems I'm the only one with mice OR my neighbors lieing to me.
Well tomorrow and for the next 3 days we are getting crapped on with weather with RAIN,WIND,and SNOW.
I WILL be here most of the day tomorrow as its the 5th anniversary of the apt fire.

Balcony photos

Category: Ed's Balcony Garden | Posted: Thu Feb 22, 2018 12:28 am

Went for a walk today to the store that I haven't walked to in over 6 months a boy that sure did do me in.
I did take some balcony photos to help in the placement of the new plants for this Summer.
The measurements of the balcony are 3'9" by 15'1" and remember I will need somewhere to sit at night.
I only took 4 photos and the first picture is of a shot I've never seen before.
Also you can see the Keets wanted to contribute their 2 words.
Now friends to the pictures and sleep warm.

Another great day

Category: Ed's Balcony Garden | Posted: Wed Feb 21, 2018 4:37 pm

Well friends another great day from NJ.
The Keets are out for the day and its already 79 degrees BUT the high tomorrow will be 40 YEP 40.
Still looking for help on my cactus and I will be uploading some photos of balcony looking for any ideas on how I should place the plants for the up coming new plants and including my 6 House plants who have grown over the winter.
This should be interesting considering you all know I get FULL sun from shortly after noon till sundown.
I would like to be able to sit out there without my knees under my chin.
Sleep warm.Ed

A Beautiful Day

Category: Ed's Balcony Garden | Posted: Tue Feb 20, 2018 11:42 pm

Friends yesterday was ok for a Winter day but today was great as it got to 75 here and I really enjoyed it.
Tomorrow is even better then the bottem drops out again with cool temps and 4 days of rain.
So me and the keets will drink in the nice weather.
They went out around 10 AM and didn't come in until sunset which was around 5:30.
I do have a slight problem and so I come here.
The pictures is of the same plant but years apart.
Now the problem is how to get a hold of the plant while transplanting as this bugger has some THORNS.

A Bad Year

Category: Ed's Balcony Garden | Posted: Sun Feb 18, 2018 1:50 am

Friends I bet you think I was dead, well it's been bad.
I've been sick for 2 weeks and STILL sick also haven't been to the store for food and thank goodness I buy extra.
The Keets are being VERY good except as you know they love to talk very loudly.
The other day it was 65 outside and now the ground is covered with snow and its still coming down.
To top everything I've been broke since the 10th of this month.
I'm actually scared to go to sleep at night for fear I won't wake up.
Well friends sleep warm and I will get back to you in AM
