Late surge lifts Flower Mound over Cinco Ranch girls in state soccer semifinals - Houston ChronicleTuesday, August 23, 2016
Metroplex team. Cinco Ranch fell to Dallas Highland Park via penalty kicks last year and Lewisville Hebron in 2014.The drought continues for Houston girls' soccer state titles. Since 2000, there have been only three girls' soccer state champions from the city at the highest classification - The Woodlands in 2010, Katy Taylor in 2006 and Klein Oak in 2003. The rest are from the Metroplex."There's a lot of competition there and in Houston," said junior midfielder Shaylee Anaya, whose goal in the 65th minute gave Cinco Ranch a 4-2 lead against Flower Mound. "They're our biggest rivals in everything."A brace from junior forward Sophie Salverino got the scoring started early for Cinco Ranch. Freshman Ali Russell's pass found Salverino, who found the back of the net 17 seconds into the match. Salverino scored in the 22nd minute for a 2-0 Cinco Ranch lead.But Flower Mound started to apply pressure, and Augustyn's tying goal came with five minutes left in regulation.Sanguinetti expects the postgame talk to resonate with his players during the offseason. If anyone gets a chance to end the drought next year, it could be this Cinco Ranch team, which had only three seniors in this year's starting 11."No one believed we could this year," Salverino said. "I feel like even next year, we'll have even more heart and desire to win the semifinal. I think we can do it."... http://www.houstonchronicle.com/sports/highschool/article/Late-surge-lifts-Flower-Mound-over-Cinco-Ranch-7252212.php
Organic Artistry: Glorious Vegetables And Flowers At Trout Lily Farm - Hartford CourantTuesday, September 01, 2015
Russo temporarily fences off small garden areas with handsome iron posts designed with circles that hold long rails of rustic cedar.The post-and-beam barn, built in 2008 by Country Carpenters in Hebron, houses the studio where Russo does floral consulting and design. It is packed with a variety of vintage vases and vessels, ribbon samples and his wreath-making machines and ornaments.Most of the flowers he uses are flowers he grows, including beautiful Love in a Mist (Nigella damascena), an old-fashioned annual surrounded by gauzy bracts — hence the mist of its name. Russo said the Victorian flower, also sometimes called Devil in a Puzzle, was a favorite of Gertrude Jekyll, the renowned English garden designer.The floral design work keeps Russo busy, but, he said, "I feel really rooted in the garden." He paused to acknowledge his amusing word choice, and added, "It's a quandary — flowers or farm, farmer or florist. ... Everything is very demanding, super demanding. Some days I should be weeding until I drop."Gorgeous GourdsBut this day he is happily watering his immense bed of gourds, where eventually he would like to add archways and turn it into The Gourdwalk, with gourds hanging from the trellises.Growing up in Milford, he said, he often ate edible gourds, including cucuzzi, or snake gourds — also called Gagoots, which he loves made into a soup or stuffed like a green pepper — and Lungo di Napoli.Most of the other gourds he grows are ornamental, including Spoon Platoon (historically used as a dipper), Goblin Egg Striped, Birdhouse, Solid Green Goblin, Dancing or Spinning Gourd, green and white Pipian and the Batwings mini pumpkin. He also has planted Kakai — a pumpkin that's also known as Lady Godiva because the edible seeds are all naked, like pepitas, Russo said; they don't have to be taken out of the husk.Another edible gourd is Black Futsu pumpkin, which looks like a shrunken head, dusted in baby powder. What's the appeal? "Probably the Halloween thing," Russo said."I love the gourds, and it's tough to choose," he said. He grows a lot of them so that "everyone can come to the party, though the guest list is a little too long, and they're very promiscuous." (They're also heavy drinkers, judging from all his watering.)Russo is growing a number of test varieties from the Hudson Seed Library, which he has joined."You can't take the teacher out of me," Russo said. "This has become my classroom." He's thinking of renovating the old red barn on the property into a kitchen where he can make pickles and kimchi and teach people how to save seeds.He happily shares his gardening tips. For example, he called WeedGuard — a biodegradable paper that comes impregnated with organic fertilizers and is available with pre-punched planting holes — "a marvel, especially for an organic farmer like me." And his compost bins are the same size as his raised beds, and sometimes he parks a... http://www.courant.com/new-haven-living/home-living/hc-hm-guilford-trout-lily-farm-20150830-story.html
Fielding Questions: Can tulip bulbs be replanted in a pot, trying... - The Dickinson PressWednesday, March 06, 2019
I’m sure there will be a national advertising push.However, it’s very important to note the entire Endless Summer series is not well-adapted for general planting in North Dakota and northern Minnesota unless certain measures are followed. The series belongs to the species Hydrangea macrophylla, which is different from other hydrangeas that thrive in our region. It’s more closely related to the florist-type hydrangea, and a majority of gardeners have reported disappointment after the first season.Those who report success with the Endless Summer series plant the shrubs in protected, shaded microclimates, mulch through the growing season, provide plentiful moisture and ensure winter protection, including good snow cover.Q: It was great fun to see the photos and read the letter from the person in Moorhead with the prolific amaryllis. I also had one of these huge white double amaryllis from Walmart this Christmas. Mine had three stems and also had 17 flowers. — Linda Luessen, Valley City, N.D.A: Thanks, Linda, for your interesting comments.Linda continues, “I got mine at the Jamestown, N.D., Walmart. When the bloom first showed color, I was disappointed to see it was going to be white, because the flower on the box was red with a white star in the middle and was labeled ‘Stargazer.’ I was amazed at the size of the bud, then this huge double flower opened up. The flowers were so large, and there were so many it was hard to distinguish one bloom from another. Needless to say, I will be checking for these mislabeled bulbs again next Christmas!”Stargazer amaryllis should indeed be bright red with white stripes, so obviously a mix-up occurred somewhere in packaging, but at least it turned into a pleasant surprise.If you have a gardening or lawn care question, email Don Kinzler at ForumGrowingTogether@hotmail.com. All questions will be answered, and those with broad appeal may be published, so please include your name, city and state for appropriate advice. https://www.thedickinsonpress.com/lifestyle/home-and-garden/4574152-fielding-questions-can-tulip-bulbs-be-replanted-pot-trying-out-new
This pretty flower is a weed; Get rid of it fast!Tuesday, August 28, 2018
I was hoping Bloomstruck was an improvement. — Lenore Grande, Moorhead.A: Your unsuccessful experience with Endless Summer is similar to the majority of those who have tried it in North Dakota and large parts of Minnesota. The basic problem is that the Endless Summer group of hydrangeas, including Bloomstruck, are members of the Hydrangea macrophylla species, which is the species of the non-adapted florist hydrangeas.The two hydrangea species that are best-adapted for our outdoor landscapes are Hydrangea paniculata and Hydrangea arborescens and their cultivars. Checking the fine print on hydrangea labels for the species saves much heartache.Because Bloomstruck is a Hydrangea macrophylla variety, it has a disadvantage in our region from the onset because of its genetics. Bloomstruck is fairly new, so time will tell, but it would be surprising if it performs better than its genetics allow.Q: Is it okay to prune the top of our arborvitae so that it doesn't grow too tall? Its width is fine, but the top is at about 8 feet and we'd like it to stay at that height. — Nancy Suttle, West Fargo.A: Yes, the tops of pyramidal arborvitae can be trimmed so they don't become too tall. If an arborvitae is allowed to grow out of bounds, it's difficult to radically reduce its height back down to desired size. Your idea of maintaining it at 8 feet from the start is much better than someday trying to cut a tall arborvitae back down to that level.Keeping a shrub or tree at its present size through pruning is often called "mold and hold" pruning. Several times during the growing season, prune off the current season's new growth so the arborvitae remains at the desired height. Some pyramidal arborvitae varieties' natural heights are 30 feet, so diligence may be needed to maintain at 8 feet.To hold an arborvitae at its present size, it's probably necessary to trim once in June or July and again in August. A quick trim across the top a couple times each summer should do it.If you have a gardening or lawn care question... http://www.inforum.com/lifestyle/home-and-garden/4486210-pretty-flower-weed-get-rid-it-fast
