    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...

    That last one made me laugh. My partner actually did set our wifi id as "surveillance van" a few years ago. :o
  4. 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,...
  5. 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...

    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: Free Land in Canada and the USA
