At our elevation (1700 ft.) here in northern Vermont, and with plenty of air circulation, I seldom have much trouble with insects.  Here are my red cabbages, with arugula as companions, and my broccolis and Brussels sprouts, all unmolested so far . . .

I don't have as much trouble with critters eating my garden as you guys that live in the country, but the squirrels have increased their pestiness/peskiness this year.  They never bothered my apricots much years ago, when I had a tree that was a different variety, but they like the nuts from this one, and waste the fruit.  Well, I managed to get 15 pounds off my little tree anyway, and I'm trying to think of a way to keep them from doing it next year.

Yes, Randall, bonding is priceless.  I'm envious because my family are such strong Mormons that It's not enjoyable being with them anymore.  I have to be so careful and not say too much about science (which I love), or any hot-button topic.  And then some of them just can't refrain from talking about Mormonism, even when I don't come close to talking about anything that will set them off.

I love it, Spud! Thanks for the figures. My daughter is going with me, so what cost is in "bonding"? Priceless. I'm off......

Permaculture gardening

Justin Rhodes records 100 days of tasks to be food self-sufficient. His wife, Rebecca, also known as “Beautiful” has her web page, as does their eldest son. It is fun to watch the garden develop over the growing season and the four children grow as well. This is a fun family to observe. Each video is about 10 minutes long, just about the time it takes me to eat my breakfast. 

I wasn't ready for these 75 Chicks - Video #1 and 60+ others published so far.

Taking a wild guess, if you get 20 miles/gal and gas costs 
$2.50/gal, you'll spend $25 on gas.  Figuring twice that for wear on the vehicle plus other fluids, will bring the cost to $50.  If you buy 25 pounds @ $5/lb, they would cost $125, so you would make $100.  Figuring 10 man-hours, you would make $10/hour.  How far off am I?

Joan, I could watch the video. It's good to see others doing the organic thing.

I'm driving 100 miles north near South Bend tomorrow to pick up "organic" blueberries to sell to CSA customers and in the market. We'll double the price, but will the cost of gas eat up the "profit"? I'm dubious.

Poppies are my favorite. The ivy plant with the tiny blue blooms looks a lot like a mint that has gone wild in my yard. People here call it chickweed but that's not the name. I looked it up last year but have since forgotten it.
