Yes, I can see her now without going to YouTube.

Every morning at breakfast, I share 10 minutes with the Justin Rhodes family, a young homesteading family. They specialize in chickens and have turkeys, cows, and vegetable gardens. With a great sense of humor and four young kids that they call, "chitlins", they take on the challenges of family life with joy for living that sparks me to get off my backside and go do a chore with a  smile on my face and a hum.

I can only work for up to an hour, and my back gives out. With a cup of coffee, a little rest, I can take on another task. 

This video is an interview with them by another homesteading family.

Looks like it's covering Europe and now starting to cover the USA.

It's coming after you, Spud! The site says it started in Italy....

I don't think I've seen Cymbalaria here Chris.  It's an attractive plant, but from what you say, I won't bring any home if I see any.

I like your other pictures also, especially your kitty in front of 2 of my favorite plants, fern & poppies.

This morning's pictures

Cymbalaria muralis - it grows on old brickwork and embankments, but when I took a piece home it invaded everything!

Chris, beautiful hollyhocks. I had some lovely black ones for several years until one of my rottweilers dug them out. Sorry the other stuff drowned. We're having the same problem with rain.
Joan thanks for the links. I learn a lot from this site. There's a wild raspberry bush in my front yard. The girls eat all the berries as they ripen. I may put a tame one in the same area and see what happens.
I thought about putting moonflower vines on the hugely bed but since it only blooms at night it wouldn't be a big plus for bee and butterflies.

Daniel I forget that we all have different planting zones and hadn't thought to google it.

Thanks Daniel for your information on tayberries.

When I read your answers I notice how much my thinking is influenced by living in a three room apartment and a small roof garden - for me a wooded bank is big and for you it is far too small. Very funny!

Thanks for the pruning links, Joan, they're very instructive!

I'm not much of a cook, Daniel, but some mint leaves make a pleasant surprise in a salad, together with nasturtium flowers and whatever else you happen to find. The best about the mint is the smell, it drowns out even the stench of the cars twelve meters down in the street. Perhaps it's not even wise to eat what I grow here, but I don't want to worry about it.
