Thank you. Mutual. Sorry I had to stay away. I think all is on track in life again. The gardens are growing like crazy!
We've missed you sooooooo much!
Good job Randy. Trees are wonderful.
With 150 year history, I can see why you want to help keep the farm going.
While this group is primarily about out own personal gardens, I'm going to expand the size to our 120 acre organic vegetable farm.
I recently bought $4200 worth of trees: poplar, oaks, nuts, fruit, evergreens. They're for windbreaks, produce, and just plain looks (nothing nicer than a majestic oak tree).
Well, guess who's been planting them? Yep--yours truly, one at a time. They average about 2 feet tall. Yesterday, I watered them from a 300 gallon tank on a tractor. (No photos unfortunately. Maybe later.)
I don't imagine I'll live long enough to see the "fruits of my labor", but that's okay. I'm doing it for my kids and grandkids and the glory of a farm that's been in our family for over 150 years.
I couldn't find your Gardening Without God group, on Atheist Nexis. Did find this site.
"Godless in the Garden" is still here--at least for me. Daniel never eliminated it. I'll look for your new group, Joan.
I tried to find this site yesterday, unsuccessfully. Where did you find it, Randy? I created a new group, Gardening Without God, but I much rather have Dan's old site. I will post here from now on if I can find it.
My garden still looks more brown than green, but I am "harvesting" three things out of it: asparagus, strawberries, and rhubarb (all perennials). In fact, my meals revolve around the use of these 3. Lettuce should be next, maybe snow peas. I decided no radishes this year.
Anybody else have anything?
Yes, I miss Daniel, too. Hopefully, he experiences some peace and quiet as he continues his struggle with medication to stave off cancer. It is dreadful stuff.
Good stuff, Joan. Yes, watering and weeding can be a chore. Too bad you can't have rain barrels. They work for me (I have two).
I mostly hoe weeds, but I do lay down dog food bags between rows to help. It's a hassle, however, to try to keep them in place. I use bricks, wood, rocks, dirt clogs, pipes, etc., but it makes for difficult walking! I do roto-till, but sparingly. Despite 40 years of "cultivating", the soil is still mostly clay which hardens like concrete when dry and compacted.
But, oh the joys of gardening! I sure miss Daniel in this group.
