    Work Load

    Today is Saturday I have the day off. I mean, the day off from my paid job. What will I do with this day? I have to apply a side dressing of compost to my growing plants and I have 32 square feet of lovely soil with nothing in it and that drives me nuts. So, in a matter of hours...

    Best Garden In Town

    I compost everything even corn stalks, corn shucks and corncobs. Each Fall I go to a local stable where they keep horses for horseback riding and I get a truckload of horse manure. They are glad to get rid of it so it doesn't cost me anything. Late in the fall I till the garden...

    Now This Has A Double Meaning( Pulling A Long Bow)

    Does it mean i don't spray my plants with a toxic product( Paraquat, Die quat) . You can take a chance and use soapy water. You can of course buy from a certified supplier. They'll have the safe to eat stuff. How old it is, is another question. We're obsessed with checking the...

    If I Told You, You Wouldn't Believe It

        Here is something I've known for years and decided to find a video on it. How many of you have seen a 12 or 14 year-old girl and were just amazed that she was not actually in her mid-20s? The rate of early puberty in children is increasing at an alarming rate....so is the...

    Living In Town

    I grew up on a farm...well, I don't think you could really call it a farm; there was a house on 40 acres in a farming community. Anyway, my father always kept a two-acre garden that would produce enough that it would feed us from one harvest to the next. Now I live on this...

    The List Is Done

    Well happily, the list got done today. My kids volunteered to come help me weed that garden, so it took about three hours less than I thought it would. You can see the before and after pics in my photo album. It was a busy day, but the only thing I didn't get done was I didn't...

    Been one since I reached adulthood.

    Decided one day that chemicals that can quickly kill one kind of living being can't be good for other living beings. Read up on the whole idea and most of it made sense. Of course there was some stuff that was just either silly or overly compulsive, but much of it works. I...

    It's That Time Of Year Again

    I'm two weeks behind this year, because the whole month of April was like the first week of March and most of May has been cold, windy, and crappy. Today I go the compost heap built, twelve of my 46 tomato plants into the ground, and I finally tilled up the side garden.
