@peteypyro Great idea!! And I would recommend mulching.
@peteypyro all else failing, try black kow manure 😃
@agroforestry there are myriad rooting techniques I've shown here, about 2-3 years ago. They all work to some degree. I prefer sterile seed starting mix of 1/3 peat moss 1/3 perlite and 1/3 vermiculite. Sterilized by heating dampened mix to 200°F in an old microwave oven. I use cinnamon powder as antifungal (vital).
See the old postings I've made in 2019~2021
Really felt this chill. Had a roof reading at 20f on Friday night as air mass plowed through without obstruction. No visible ice though. I’m not sure what thermodynamics were at play as the air a few feet off the ground was substantially warmer and all the large trees have been packed heavily with mulch and logs - effectively turning the trees themselves into a radiator in this frigid air. In other news the older dog doesn’t mind the cold when going for walks but the little one sure does.
I am getting cornered today as we had some rain. Doubtful that this water will evaporate any time soon.
@peteypyro oh no how cold did It get
