Aren't meal worms anything more than fly maggots?

Friday, Aug 11, the whole family is going to the Indiana State Fair to be presented a sesquicentennial (150) Hoosier Homestead Award. I guess it's sort of a big deal. I'm excited about attending. Our farm began in 1864 with Wm. Silverthorn. (silverthorn-farm.com).

Plinius, how's your garden doing?  It's been a long time since you're mentioned it.

Kathy, I have been wanting to grow some meal worms for the bird population that is growing near the bird feeding station in the Fir tree just outside my window. Thank you! I will try the technique

To the chicken owners and bird lovers:

I accidentally learned how to make meal worms for them. When the chicken feed got soaked during the last rains I emptied the wet mess into a quart plastic strawberry container. I was intending to throw it in the trash but sat it on a worktable near the henhouse and forgot it. After about ten days of high temps I picked it up to carry it to the trash I saw meal worms wiggling through the ventilation slots. Hundreds of them. The chickens love them and so do wild birds. I've made them twice more.

It is difficult for me to imagine not having legalized Cannabis,

Joan, I'm with you on the medical care. I call McConnell and Ryan at least twice a week about their plans to destroy our healthcare system. And I write them more than that. There have never been two more greedy senators in this state to my knowledge. At least not at the same time.
Good news Shrilly has been found guilty. He's the creep who upped the price seven thousand percent on the AIDS drug. I know that isn't his name but it suits him. Price gouging wasn't the charges but, hey, whatever works : )

Thomas, I agree with you about needless suffering. The trick is, as you found out, finding a dr who will work with you. That's very difficult in this small town. The county hospital rotate them through the only clinic ( which the county hospital also owns) every two years. A new one comes in, fulfills the two year contract,(or not) and they leave here. Having signed a non compete contract when they come in a patient can't keep a dr they like when the dr leaves.
I want Cannabis legalized here so I could get the kind with little to no thc. I'm to old to enjoy the brain buzz anymore. My memory is bad enough as it is. I would like to be able to find a strain that's high in CBD. I know it works for me, without the hazards of narcotics, but ky doesn't allow it. So occasionally I use it to ease the pains.
I think continuing to use the push mower is good exercise and you've found a way to make it manageable. If I were you I would continue to as long as possible.

Thomas, thank you for all the information. I tagged Natra-Cure products and saw some things that Larry could use. 

With  Plantar Fasciitis how do you do all that mowing? Even if you do it over several days, that would be a great pain. 

I found it easy to lose weight by planning my meals carefully, eating more fresh fruits and vegetables and less starch; I have cut out potatoes, rice, pasta, and reduced the amount of honey and cream I use daily in my coffee. I use a dessert plate instead of a dinner plate for my meals and don't go for second helpings. 

I get my New Balance shoes and orthotics from a referral of my podiatrist and Medicare pays the bills. I'm also watching what is happening with Social Security and Medicare under this administration. I don't want to give up any of these benefits to make some wealthy person richer.

I forgot to add.... When I go barefoot around the house I use these .

  I already have Plantar Fasciitis feet and wear orthopedic inserts. I also have pronation on my right foot which is why I wear ankle supports. I am also overweight. All my life I did a lot of walking.I also had swollen knee three times and my orthopedic drained the fluids out thrice.

  Mornings before I get out of bed are the most painful times. Mobility seems to be the key to keep the pains in check. New Balance shoes sounds like a good idea. Did you order yours on line or bought yours at a store?  I need ankle high shoes.

  I also take extended release pain pills. They are narcotic, but is considered lightweight compared to others. It helps with my leg, back and neck pains. Sometimes I get injections in my lower back and it does help. But I had to go through a mirage of doctors to find the one that fit my needs.

  There was no pint in living with pains if it can be relieved. Life is once and mine and there is nothing prove by suffering.
