Chris, moss is beautiful.

Did you raise your snakes for fun, to eat bugs in the garden, or both?

Some folks chase the encroaching mosses with a power washer.

Just scythed down the asparagus ferns and used a few to much the garlic--the last gardening chore of the season.  Nothing more to do now (except turn the compost another time or two) until April.

Plinius - I won't argue that in the right places moss is nice. I've even planted it at times. It's not quite so attractive on my driveway as it is in your picture though!

Randall - thanks for the "Wet and Forget" tip. (That's just begging for an off-color joke!)  I think I may try Daniel's suggestion of vinegar first. I actually have a gallon sitting around to clean my cpap machine.

Bertold, I use a product called "Wet and Forget" to rid my brick drive moss and roof lichen problems. It actually works! Expensive, however.

Daniel, I started my persimmon trees from seed. Having no idea which were "male or female", I could only plant and wait 'til maturity. It turned out that of the 6 I planted, four were male, two producing females. One little lady does very well, the other not too great. I should cut down two males, but I don't have the heart.

What's wrong with a little moss, Bertold? It's so beautiful!

LOL Daniel, worm counters at Walmart ... The one thing I've noticed no matter what I read about worms farms everyone says not to over feed them. I gave them, coffee and tea grounds, banana, apple, and sprouted whole wheat bread all smooshed up in blender - about 3 Tbs to start. 

Bertold what are the growing conditions needed for moss?  I thought it was shade and moisture.  Does the moss grow on your pavement because it is so moist from rain?

Does anyone know a good way of inhibiting moss from growing on asphalt by any chance? My decrepit blacktop is looking more like greentop.

Daniel, I just bought two containers of the worms and counted them out when I got home.  I wanted to know how many I was starting with and I'm hoping in a month or so I may have more - a reflection that I've kept them alive. 

I have some acrylic paint pens and I also have alcohol ink which I can use on metal tags.

Barbara, yes, this site holds a wealth of information about gardening. Lots of soil under the fingernails here. Daniel has done a great job of organizing topics so that it is easier to return to a specific topic. I try to learn from him, but alas, his excellent organization skills present more discipline than I seem to be able to muster. 

I am so very impressed with your project and love your narrative and photos. This winter will be a rich time to imagine and create ideas for what we want to do next spring.
