The ducks have a new yard, my future tomato and bean garden. 12.22.17
If it is amanita, it's psychedelic. You'd be seeing colors a while after ingesting it. AKA the food of the gods.
I would assume that, too. Your soil must be in good health, indeed.
My goodness, yes! Take very good care of your liver and all other parts of your body!
It is so pretty; why the caution? I know nothing about mushrooms, obviously, other than what I just now read..
What do you intend to do with it? Or to it?
I'm envious, Bertold. I've nursed my lone rhodie for 5 years. It's hangin' by a thread.
It's a beauty, Bertold, but isn't its timer half a year slow?
We've lived here 14 years now, and this one rhodie blooms every December.
Interesting, Joan. Always a fount of knowledge.
The erosion of arable land presents a formidable problem. Thankfully, there are ways to renovate destroyed growing grounds. Creating swales on the contour of the land can fill in the gullies and prevent new ones from forming.
We are growing on a dune left over by the last Ice Age. The soil erodes quickly and as soon as cutting the trees and grasses. Our land was dense forest until strip logging occurred.
"The Newport lumber mills were involved in planing, shingle, cedar post and pole milling. A 1909 promotional brochure touted Newport as “the largest cedar pole shipping point in the entire Northwest and many thousands are annually yarded here awaiting shipment” (Bamonte, 34). Between 1910 and 1920, the Diamond Match Company gained ascendancy, and by 1923 was the largest employer in Pend Oreille County. The humble match was in great demand for lighting everything from pipes to kerosene lamps."
Four cedar trees grow on this property of which we are aware. The rest of the regrowth include red and white fir, a few varieties of pines and the ever beautiful in the autumn, Western Larch.
The geodesic dome performs much as we expected, even as we hoped for more varieties of vegetables. We moved the citrus trees in before the first frost; the lemon tree has about 20 lemons developing. Their blossoms filled the greenhouse with the most lovely aroma. We had good pollination, I don't know if they pollinated naturally or by my little brush work.
The chickens get a handful of greens every day, leaving nary a leaf uneaten. Their delicious eggs stand up in the frying pan looking like white daisies with yellow centers.
I have a bunch of experiments going looking for greens that can thrive in these conditions. Latitude makes a difference for solar heating and clear days for access to sun rays.
