    Re: How do you help others?

    I began donating to Kiva years ago, supporting micro loans. I am so glad I did it when my financial situation was okay, because now that it's not, the initial money I contributed can still make a...

    Re: The Gardening Thread

    The gardening season here wrapped up in mid-September. I got my garlic in late this year, on October 12th. Just in the nick of time, too - in the next few days, we had the first hard frost, and...

    Re: What happened to Brian Rose?

    I enjoy many of his interviews and have listened for several years. To be honest, I think I preferred the tone/vibe of the podcast prior to his Dan Peña connection. Of course, everyone is entitled...

    Re: Meme Your Memeist Memes Thread

    That last one made me laugh. My partner actually did set our wifi id as "surveillance van" a few years ago. :o
  7. Re: What did you plant today? Garden and Farming for FOOD SECURITY.

    How are my fellow gardeners faring? It has been a cool, overcast, drizzly summer so far, so most things in my garden are a bit behind. It's hard to be patient, sometimes. :blushing: The brassicas,...
  8. Re: What did you plant today? Garden and Farming for FOOD SECURITY.

    I transplanted some lettuce, kale, chard, sage, cabbage, and basil this past week, as well as sowing carrot seed. I am still hardening off the tomatoes and peppers. I am looking forward to it being...

    Re: Best garden vegetables

    I agree with the wonderful suggestions offered here by the other members. I would also suggest, depending on how much space you have, squash. Many varieties grow in a bush habit rather than a...

    Re: The Gardening Thread

    Hi Lilybee8, I'm glad you joined this thread. If you are new to gardening and need some seeds (especially now, when so many seed businesses are either backlogged by 2+ weeks or have temporarily...

  12. Re: What did you plant today? Garden and Farming for FOOD SECURITY.

    Cabbage, kale, and lemon balm. :sun:

    We have a short growing season where I live, and we live in a small house, so "milk jug greenhouses" were a game-changer for me when I learned about them. We...

    Re: What did you do today to prepare for COVID-19 ?

    Re: What did you do today to prepare for COVID-19 ?

    I looked up how to make a mustard plaster. My mother trained as a nurse in the 60s and said that mustard plasters were still being used in hospitals (and in homes, of course) when she was a student...

    Re: Home Fermentation

    After several years away from it, I began brewing kombucha again earlier this month. Ginger kombucha beats gingerale (pop) any day!

    I wanted to get back into making milk kefir, too. Last time...

    I recently learned about a relatively new forum for gardeners who love growing tomatoes. It's called, "Tomato Junction". It is fairly small right now, in terms of membership, but I quite like it...
