Thank you for answering.
I need to update my profile. We moved to New Mexico a couple months ago.

I have a small lot with just desert weeds that have seeded here. We are taking out everything and planting fruit trees. The soil is just sand and clay, no worms at all. A neighbor told me I can’t  have a compost pile unless its covered because of rats and roaches so I have been burying kitchen scraps and anything I can to enrich to soil.
It’s all different than what I was used to in Indiana.

I guess I’ll just put them out with the trash to be thrown in the landfill.

Can anyone tell me how long I need to let yuccas and desert willows sit in the sun after cutting them down before I can bury them?

I don’t want them to sprout again.

I’ve canned them too, and used jelly jars because I didnt want to have leftovers after opening a jar.
Ive also canned them with bell peppers and mushrooms. I always use a crockpot.

I will keep her then. I think the cork kept it alive. I have bottles with metal caps that are 2 and 3 years old and the mother has not grown at all in them.

Thanks for the quick reply.😊

Thank you!

I will probably have them in the moving truck so they will be in a hot dry truck in the dark for a couple days.
I used to dip bearded iris in a bucket of water with a splash of bleach in it before mailing them. I hope that kills any borers that might be hiding. I’ve never had any pests on my daylilies. I got a daylily mail order that had a red worm on it once.

Oh I have to try the watermelon recipe!

I love watermelon but Im the only one in the house that does and since I cant eat a whole one I just never buy it anymore.

The part where they get slimey is what worries me.

I just want to take small fans. I know that dividing rejuvenates the plants but I don’t want the people that bought the house to see it as me taking something they bought so I was hoping to take so little that they couldn’t tell I took any.

I was hoping that I could dig them a week before the move as I would have more time.

Still not sure whether to keep them bare root or plant in buckets of soil, sand or peatmoss.

A ginger bug is just shredded organic ginger, water and sugar that you let ferment and use to make ginger ale.
You replenish it with more shredded ginger and sugar.

I have not named my cultures but now I’m going to have to. Lol
