I would love to have 100 acres, but would not like to have to make a living from it.

Spent over an hour with my farm manager son-in-law yest. I've offered to pay for an extended irrigation system which includes a pond. The farm has original tiling for drainage and is need of replacing, so I'll be covering that, also. Whew! (I'm commenting in this group because organic farming is a big form of gardening!)
He's offered to pay rent which is what is usually done in the corn and soybean land use. But, I've declined because I'm just happy to have a manager in the family. He and my daughter will inherit the land eventually, anyway (100 ac).
I wish I had time to detail all his (our) plans for not only this year, but all the years to follow. We're all thrilled with the prospects. Remember, you can go to Silverthorn farm.com to check it out (Rossville, IN).

In the 20 years in Pocatello, I don't remember ever seeing a hummingbird.

Yeah, my daughter wonders why I still garden when they grow everything I need. It's what you said, Daniel, and more. I just enjoy going straight out to pick what I want, be it asparagus, cilantro, or a tomato. I need to begin plotting my strategy for the upcoming year.

The Psychological benefits of gardening gave me a little push to get out there more this year.  

Last year was a lazy year, but now I've got quite a few seeds, plan on getting more, plan on getting a Pomegranate tree, and a few other things, all of which will push me out the door and bring me all those good gardening benefits.

Daniel, I like what Seed Savers Exchange do, but haven't grown enough of their plants yet to say for sure how much I like them.

Someday, I may start saving seeds like you do, and sending them some.

Daniel, yeah, you're back! I read your onion sprout blog. I never had any luck with onion seeds. Do you plant scallions and such?

Today I received from Seed Savers Exchange, seeds of 3 kinds of Broccoli, 2 kinds of Peas, Celery, Cauliflower, Lettuce, Tomato, Muskmelon, and Watermelon.

Daniel, what happened to your blogspot sidebar? Did you quit the site? I enjoyed reading your detailed garden exploits.

Spud, I don't think corn seeds being "treated" means anything bad. I soak the seeds 24 hours before planting which removes most of the red coating. Soaking speeds up the germination time. Your fingers will get red when you plant the seeds. Wash and you'll be fine. Hope you have a good crop!
