Oh! Is this Christmas cactus? Schlumbergera, I like that name. Where is the accent?

Amer, do you also grow Schlumbergera cactus?  They are blooming like crazy here, right now.

Joan! I am in love with my cactus. Anything in the way of their improvement attracts me heavily. After your advice I spent at least 2 hrs in search of methods and ended up buying PH testing kit used in school labs. They use Litmus papers for testing soil samples. Thanks a lot anyway.

I found litmus test strips in the grocery store yesterday. Have never noticed them before.

Backyard homestead

I thought this was a rooftop garden but it turns out to be hillside garden; lots going on in this little space.

Sentient, really good news about your thinking of keeping bees; your small patch of Earth will be a virtual garden of life. Do keep us informed.

Dallas, thank you so much for this Ode to a Worm. I'm going to have to find a way to put this in a form that is permanent and in my garden. I have a potter friend who may know how to preserve the words.

Thanks Joan, I wasn't aware that there could be some household methods for PH testing. Now I will find a way. Thanks again for showing the direction.

Went to a 3 hour beekeeping class last night.  Might actually do that!

This garden already has hens and orchard mason bees.  And lots of earthworms.  And the visiting birds.  Not just plants.

According to the beekeeping teacher, hobby beekeeping is a growing trend.  WHo knew?
