I'm so excited about my garden plot...except for the gophers.

I harvested my goldenrod last week. Chopped it fresh and tinctured with Grape alcohol instead of grain. My echinaceas are flowering.

I planted 2 Ashwaganda plants last month and an elecamopane. Had to use gopher root cages to keep the buggers away.

My Salvia apiana and an unidentifiable frosty white mugwort is loveing the sun and dry air. Thay are doing great.

My Angelica which i splanted in a pot is not doing as well as I should...looks healthy but just is small, has not grown mush this year at all.

Where did you get the grape alcohol from? Marian Farms? Sometimes I feel like I'm making inferior medicine. All I have is Vodka.

The grape stuff comes from the same company CSHS uses but they get the grain one. It's probably cheaper. But We did a bulk order at Ohlone. and I got 2 gallons for $80.

I can see the label in my head. If I remeber next monday I'll go look for you. It's not really worth it unless you buy the 5 gallon drums like the school does. becasue they reem you with the shipping.

Tina, how did your garden fare last year? I was able to get a plot in Livermore's community garden this year, so I would like to hear about yours. Any words of wisdom?

Sorry, I haven't been on in quite a while. i giess Facebook would be easier to get me then here.

my plot did OK in that it was fine for a beginner. I was happy with what I grew but I had a lot of gophers and lost half my stuff. So I put in 3 1/2 wine barrels in during the summer and grew the stuff that i really wanted to make sure did not get eaten, skullcap, vervain mugwort thyme. and it fared fine but needs this year to really take off.

I also planted 2 echinacea plants and 2 astragalas and 1 elecampane in gopher root cages. basiicaly a mesh bucket I planted in the earth so it protects the roots over the next few years until i harvest them.

So now to deal with the gopher issue I'm putting in 2 large beds 4x4 each. but I'm digging them deeper in the gound like 12 inches and the beds will sit about 8 inches above ground. I wanted a deep bed to handle the root plants. I lined the bottom with gopher cage or chicken wire cage.

I'll also be adding a few more wine barrels or large round metal bathing tubs to plant other stuff. I'll set these on a few bricks so they drain well.

My white sage, mugwort, helichrysum and goldenrod all survived in the ground but that may have just been a fluke.

the stuff to watch. mugwort spreads through shoots under the earth and come up somewhere else sometimes 12 inches away. so that may be something you grow in a container. Golden rod can do the same. my 3 pants that are in a 1 foot square radios are now at about 2 foot radios. I'm thinking on digging it up and putting it in a large container as I don't need that much golden rod.

still have to get my seeds started and I'm still not sure what I want to grow this year. I'm thinking on odering live plants from Horizan herbs, Riccho chechs site.

Good luck . \

Let me know how it goes
