This video is a farming story and an interesting one. He uses teams of horses to work his fields and advises that locally grown food should be eaten, rather than that produced from around the globe. No Gasoline Farmer!

Mark Brock has a grain and oilseed operation in Southern Ontario. He grows corn, soybeans, dry beans, and winter wheat. This vlog is about his trip to Australia where learns the weather patterns, soil composition, crops, and farming methods used on various farms. I find this vlog especially interesting because of his interest in the soils and the methods used to produce crops.

My preference is an English style of yard with lots of flowers with vegetables and fruit trees scattered around here and there. My Dad raised rabbits for food, hides, and manure. He Jerryrigged a watering system off the rabbit hutches that caught rainwater that percolated through a system that took fertilized water to the vegetable and fruit garden. Mom and I canned the harvest that went into a huge pantry in the basement. We lived off that produce all year long. We weren't able to grow all our food but put a big dip in our food costs.

Thanks for your garden update, Randall. <sigh> It's like sharing a little piece of your life with us.

Information that is shared and used can transform a refugee camp into a healthy, productive place for people forced away from their homelands because of climate change, political unrest, and religious conflict. Here is an adventurous, innovative woman making a difference.

Well, it's September now, and the garden is winding down.

I've dug up all my potatoes (except sweet) and onions. Tomatoes and peppers are doing well for the most part. Several varieties haven't produced like I would have liked.

Sweet corn was a disaster this year. That's what I get for buying packaged seeds from Rural King. Worms and bugs have plagued kale, cabbage, and broccoli, not to mention squash.

I'm nearly ready to plow the whole garden under. Then, come Spring, I'm eager to go through the process all over again. Hope.

How are others doing?

I "harvested" dill (weed) yesterday. It grows voluntarily every year, of course. Like my sunflowers, the seeds germinate all over my garden. I save a few plants for the next year. Anyway, I love dill seeds on salads. Plus, I use them for making dill pickles (my cucumbers). Everybody should grow dill.

Mulching is good. How big is your garden, Jotham?

We received over an inch of rain yesterday! The garden drank it up, esp. my sweet corn. I planted it late, so it's way behind in tasseling, etc. The rain certainly helped it.

Hot and dry here for the next couple weeks. I have my entire garden mulched with meadow clippings!
