Crinum x herbertii

“…and mortal men cannot uproot it”

If you have ever tried to dig a mature clump of Crinum, it truly feels as if no mortal man can uproot them!  It can actually be done and I encourage everyone to try…once.  After that, hop on over to www.southernbulbs.com and browse for some bulbs we’ve already dug. I’m writing now (month of May) […]

  I’m excited to offer the Texas Tulip today (you may purchase here).  If you received “The Bulb Hunter” newsletter, so saw that I offered to expand on the offering here on the blog.   I believe it has been about 7 years since I offered the Texas tulip. Time really does fly. I’ve had […]

Back at the Cabin Again!

Back at the Cabin Again!

Just thought you all might like to know just how creative the Bulb Boy is. We inherited all kinds of interesting goods when John and Erin moved from Tyler this month, Quick Shine all purpose floor cleaner, cilantro in a squeeze tube (new one for me), and sugar free canned cocktail just to name a […]

Lycoris incarnata

Lycoris incarnata in Louisiana Lycoris across the South are beginning to bloom, but one in particular that we are now growing on the farm is Lycoris incarnata.

Squash in Brenham

Squash in Brenham

I am writing with Dr. Welch in Brenham, and he made the best squash casserole. Rebecca suggested blog followers might enjoy the recipe, but I’d already eaten it before I took a picture, so I scraped up what was left in the tupperware and slapped it on my plate. Sorry Pioneer Woman, but my pictures […]

The Best View

The Best View

Perhaps as old as Cain and Abel is a woman’s need to install contact paper in cabinets. I never quite understood this before, but after Rebecca completed this task, the results were remarkable. When you live in a fifty plus year old cabin, the dust, and critters are very difficult to control. Contact paper does […]

Bulbs Before Breakfast

Bulbs Before Breakfast

Even after a long, busy day yesterday, we still found the energy to harvest these crinum blooms. The stink bugs were having a hay day crawling over every inch of the stems. Rebecca made sure that I shook the flowers clean before bringing the blooms into the car. Dinner didn’t happen until after eight in […]

Milking Stool

Milking Stool

Insomnia is rarely a problem here at the Red Cabin because there is never a dull moment and always something to do. Rebecca was thrilled to have the shelving system completed yesterday. Used scraps of lumber found on the farm and scavenged from my brother’s home in Tyler. This little guy was working hard alongside […]
