I'm gaining! Seeding and planting the garden, I mean. Except for plants I got from my daughter's greenhouse, nothing has sprouted yet. We need warm weather, having had 11 straight days of temps way below average. I'll be covering up the tomatoes, cabbage, etc., over night to keep the rabbits from chewing them down. They already got a beautiful blue flower I had. How does your garden look?

Yesterday, I braved "the new world" and left my house to go to 20 miles to a greenhouse to buy garden seeds and some flowers for my porch pots. I am now ready to begin digging in the dirt!

I also went golfing, the course being open to walkers only--clubhouse closed. Like the greenhouse, I had the course to myself!

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.
